Hi, Greta,

I enjoyed this piece (and I frequent your blog and usually enjoy your writing-- keep up the great work! :>).

I want to add my vote agreeing with you: porno is often the same-old, but that's only because any kind of movie is. Just take a look at popular movies over the last thirty years: a few bright spots, but those are /not/ the norm.

I have been watching a lot of porn from the so-called Golden Age lately, and although I do get the appeal of gonzo and sometimes really like it and enjoy its intensity, there is a lot to be said for the days when blue films had a budget and a script.

To be frank, people who attack pornography as repetitious probably either haven't seen enough kinds of it or are really attacking it for some other reason. Maybe they need to see a Rinse Dream movie. Maybe the zombiecore flick they saw didn't turn them on, but that doesn't mean it wasn't different. Everyone has different fantasies, and every porn director with an idea does try to do something different within the commercial constraints available to them, just like a director of any other sort of movie-- they also have to make a living, and really interesting ideas are just not going to sell or appeal to everybody.
