Do I have a typical day at the office?
Well it depends what day it is because for much of the week I’m working as a project manager and analyst for various commercial organisation. At night however and at the weekends you can guess that I’ll be working on the sites, reviewing sex toys or watching the latest porn DVD. I’ve got a DVD playing at the moment while I write this as it happens, a bit of necessary multi-tasking in a very busy life.
Luckily this one’s only got a runtime of 1 hour 45 minutes, not like some of the monster 3 hour epics that we seem to be getting through these days. Or even the new triple packs of previously released DVDs that allow the studios to re-release old content to give it a second life on the shelves of the local sex shop.
Funny, but despite it being a porn movie I now find myself looking at the acting, script, locations, camera and lighting. A real contrast from a decade ago where it was the sex that captured my attention. It’s probably because of the fact that I’ve seen all sorts of sex between all sorts of couples and groups of people. Frankly I can’t think of any other sexual activity or scenario that I haven’t seen and would like to. So it’s down to the technicalities.
That might sound dispassionate and maybe even missing the point of the titillation of porn but in fact it isn’t. What you actually realise after a while is that the porn, the sex, the titillation is all the more engaging and arousing if you are not distracted by the sound a guy getting into shot or the cameraman wobbling as he trips over a cable, or even the lack of a reflector that means a shot is so dim as to be wreathed in shadows.
You’ll be able to read the review over on Erotic Buzz shortly. Until then, I have a porn DVD review to write.
