5 Porn Myths Exposed

Pornography is more popular than ever, even if most people keep their viewing habits to themselves. The billion-dollar industry continues to grow and adapt, using new technology to reach customers in new markets all over the globe while.

Yet despite the advances in the creation and consumption of erotic materials, the same tired myths continue to dog the industry. Here are the top five myths about pornography and the adult entertainment industry and why they no longer hold water.

Myth #1 – Porn Movies Are All Low Budget Shlockfests

The most common and pervasive myth about porn is that it’s all directed by film school rejects and Hollywood wannabe’s in foreclosed homes and warehouses in Porn Valley on a shoestring budget in a single day or less. Detractors joke that the storylines make little or no sense, that they are full of bad acting, subpar lighting, and that they all share that cheesy soundtrack even your neighbor can recognize through the walls.

While there was a time during the video and DVD craze that this type of stuff was the standard fare, porn has come a long way in the last decade. From high end features like Kay Brandt’s Baumgartner series for Adam & Eve starring power couple Mick Blue and Anikka Albrite to sex education lines like Jessica Drake’s Guide To Wicked Sex: Satisfy Her Like A Legend to parody releases like Axel Braun’s Justice League starring Charlotte Stokely, commercial pornography is branching out to reach new markets, macro and micro.

These days you can find lesbian titles that focus on heavy foreplay right alongside the standard ‘porn-by-numbers’ stuff, along with transgender romance, interracial cuckolding, and slew of other niche fantasies! And if that doesn’t tickle your pickle, strap in and try out virtual reality.

Myth #2 – Porn Sex Is Unrealistic

The Standing Wheelbarrow. The Butter Churn. The Waterfall. The Snow Angel. The Emperor’s Hernia. Sporking. For years the popular myth was that you’d have to be just short of an Olympic athlete and trained contortionist to perform the sex positions captured in your favorite scenes.

While there are plenty of titles with professional level acrobatics and pyrotechnics you wouldn’t want to try at home in today’s commercial pornography, the vast majority of sex scenes feature the garden variety positions you’ve come to know and love. Worst case scenario, you might learn some new stuff to try out in the bedroom later.

Other complaints that fall into this general category are that the girls are all young, which the growing popularity of the MILF genre undermines (as XBIZ MILF of the Year Brandi Love can attest) and that they are all shaved, which Barely Legal star Avi Love and her big, beautiful bush assure us just isn’t so.

Myth #3 – Porn Guys Are Ugly

Back in the Golden Age of Porn, guys like John Holmes, Ron Jeremy, Harry Reems, and Buck Adams got down and dirty with hot stars like Marilyn Chambers, Nina Hartley, and Vanessa Del Rio.

They were manly men doing a dirty job that really needed doing. Getting into the business was difficult. Jobs were scarce, and sometimes questionably legal. The payoff was becoming a real star, if only on the blue screen.

With the rise of gonzo titles in the 90’s, storylines and acting took a backseat to explicit sex. The rapid escalation of production meant the need for more studs. Overnight male performers went from being celebrated studs to feeling like props. Female consumers noticed the change, and the myth that porn guys are all ugly began to take root. Only problem is, it just isn’t true.

If anything, the caliber of male star has gone WAY up since the Golden Age, with more demands than ever on the stars. Big name male talent dominating the adult industry landscape today look more like male models than former pizza delivery guys, with legions of horny fans hanging on their every word on social media and eating up their scenes.

Mick Blue, Jessy Jones, Derrick Pierce, Ricky Johnson, Jean Val Jean, Charles Dera, Bill Bailey, Ryan Driller, Seth Gamble, Keiran Lee, Shane Diesel, Xander Corvus, Johnny Sins, Isiah Maxwell, Johnny Castle, and literally dozens more, serve as proof that this porno myth just doesn’t add up!

Myth #4 – Porn Performers Are Victims Being Exploited, Especially Women

For some people the idea that women might enjoy sex enough to actively seek a career in it just doesn’t add up. To them, the only reason anyone gets involved in the adult entertainment industry is because they need to feed a habit or are being manipulated by an abusive partner making them perform. That’s just not the norm. Far from it.

It’s important to make the distinction between women being forced into prostitution and sex trafficking and adult entertainment. Adult performers actively seek out employment, of their own volition. They decide who they work with and what they will, and more importantly won’t, do with their bodies. They are free to get up and walk off set.

Performers today have more options than ever to take control of their brand and rake in the profits. Women earn more than their male counterparts, a rare feat in most industries. They run their own companies, like Female Performer of the Year Anikka Albrite, who owns BAM Visions along with her husband Mick Blue and their partner Claudio.

They use their brand to launch their dreams of becoming an author, like sexy XXX Puerto Rican Princess Shay Evans, who just released her erotic fantasies in a new bestselling series on Amazon, Shay’s Sexy Stories.

Most talent are now using their social media to earn money by giving fans exclusive access to their most private videos and photos via subscription. Popular redhead Lauren Phillips also uses hers to raise awareness about cyberbullying, donating part of her camming proceeds to organizations working to end it.

They plan out feature dancing tours across the country, like timeless beauty Jennifer White, create content for their websites and clips to sell in their online stores like inked angel Anna Bell Peaks, and plan vacations around jobs in other countries.

For those with the look, the sex drive, and the motivation, being a performer paves the way to a lifestyle beyond anything they could ever have dreamed.

Myth #5 – Porn is Free

Nope. Totally false. Just because you can see it on a tube site or download it on torrent, doesn’t make it free. Real people work hard, spending time, energy, and millions of dollars each year to create the stuff you love to watch – and not just performers. Production teams, set designers, warehouse employees, accountants, caterers, and literally hundreds of other skilled professionals make their living creating adult content.

They deserve to be compensated for their hard work, as well as the risks they take personally and professionally to create adult content.

If we do not support the people we love they will not be able to continue creating the movies, scenes, and content we consume. That’s why it is important to pay for your porn. Think it’s too expensive? Wrong again!

What is Axel Braun not saying?

Axel Braun is no longer with Vivid. We all know that because it’s on all the major new sites and blogs. Only something isn’t right about this news … mostly that I’ve gotten it from the different sources in the form of a press release. This isn’t major major news. I mean he was only making movies for them for a few years and it was the kind of thing Vivid did all the time. They have a distribution deal like this with Sunny Leone as SunLust, they had one like it with Tera Patrick and a long time ago with Jenna Jameson. Hell they even had a deal like that with douche bag Bill Fisher, aka Cezar Capone with his Filthy Films line. And all of those deals lasted a whole heck of a lot longer than the deal Axel Braun had with Vivid. So why is it this deal, this person that makes everyone send out not one but three different presses releases and only AFTER it already appeared as “news” on both XBIZ and AVN?

It just seems odd. It’s not really news. Not big enough for warrant that. He made some movies for Vivid. He no longer is. He wants to do his own thing now. Umm okay. What’s the big deal?

Is he wanting us to read something between the lines or something? Is that why Axel Braun is making such a big deal about ending his deal with Vivid? Clearly there is something Axel Braun is trying to tell us or he wouldn’t be trying to shout it out so much. Because in the end, this isn’t major news. So guess we’ll have to wait to find out what it is.

AXEL BRAUN LEAVES VIVID – King Of Porn Parodies Parts Ways With Adult Powerhouse

After four years of chart-topping blockbusters, three consecutive AVN Director Of The Year trophies, and a couple dozen other awards, Axel Braun surprisingly announced today that he is leaving Vivid Entertainment.

“It’s an absolutely amicable split” said Braun, “Vivid is a terrific company, and everybody there has always been great to me. I have a tremendous amount of respect for Steven Hirsch, but I simply felt it was time to hit the reset button and challenge myself with different endeavors.”

A 23-year adult industry veteran, and by far the most critically acclaimed adult director in recent history, Braun first started collaborating with Vivid in late 2009, when he signed a distribution deal for his namesake company Axel Braun Productions. His first ABP title, the hilariously sexy Batman XXX, became the highest selling and highest renting title of the year, winning a slew of awards and effectively jumpstarting a superhero parody craze that took the industry by storm. From Superman to Spider-Man, from Wolverine to Iron Man, there aren’t many costumed crimefighters left that Braun hasn’t successfully parodied, much to the delight of his loyal and ever-growing geek fanbase.

“I’m first and foremost a comic book fan” said Axel, “I notoriously obsess over the tiniest details to make sure that the characters I spoof are portrayed as accurately as possible, and I guess that resonates strongly with other fans. It’s easier to give an audience what they want when you’re part of the same demographic.”

But comics are not the only target of Braun’s parodies, which often take on his childhood heroes, like in the case of the multi award-winning Elvis XXX, or his favorite movies, as with last year’s top selling and top renting Star Wars XXX, another ABP mega-hit in which the director’s legendary attention to detail was once again in full display.

“I’m not going to stop shooting parodies,” assures Braun, who recently signed superstar Riley Steele to an exclusive 2-Year contract. “I just want to take ABP in a slightly different direction and expand my catalogue, and I feel the need to have more control over every aspect of this phase, and more time to focus on promoting Riley. Meanwhile I will still continue to collaborate with Vivid on the post-production of the many projects that we recently completed, while I’m looking forward to this exciting new stage of my career.”

About Axel Braun: The son of legendary porn-pioneer Lasse Braun and grandson of a diplomat, Axel Braun was born and raised in Italy, where he received a privileged upper-class upbringing. Fluent in five languages, a member of MENSA, a film-school graduate, and the bearer of a Ph.D. in psychology, Axel has a unique cultural background that sets him apart from the many other directors in the adult industry. A second-generation AVN Hall-of-Famer, over the span of his career he has won dozens of awards all over the world for directing, producing, screenwriting, and editing, including three consecutive “Director Of The Year” AVN awards. For more information visit facebook.com/AxelBraun and twitter.com/axelbraun

Over 21 Please

Despite the fact that the genre of “teen porn” is currently the most popular AVN award winning director Axel Braun says thanks but no thanks.

AXEL BRAUN TO RAISE MINIMUM AGE REQUIREMENT TO 21 FOR ALL PERFORMERS

Top Adult Director Sets Landmark Precedent

21+XBIZ

Three-time AVN Director of the Year Axel Braun is adding a new stipulation for adult performers who wish to appear in sexually explicit roles in any of his movies: effective immediately the minimum age requirement will be 21 years.

“If the law says you are not old enough to handle alcohol responsibly, then you are probably not ready to make a career decision that will have such strong repercussions on the rest of your life” says Braun. “After 23 years in the business I have come to strongly believe that an 18-year old fresh out of High School has a completely different perspective on life than he or she will have three years later, and I just want to allow them enough time to make a more informed, mature decision. This may not be a popular choice, but it is a personal one, and it is what my conscience tells me to do. I simply don’t feel comfortable anymore shooting talent under 21.”

This policy will be in effect for all Axel Braun Productions movies, as well as for all projects directed by Braun for other companies.

Team Vivid Wins 5 Nightmoves Awards

AXEL BRAUN AND VIVID TEAM SWEEP FIVE AWARDS AT 20TH ANNUAL NIGHTMOVES CEREMONY

TAMPA, FLORIDA– (October 9 2012) – The Vivid Entertainment/Axel Braun team took five trophies at the 20th Annual NightMoves Awards ceremony held here Sunday. Braun was honored as Best Director and also recognized for his work with aLifetime Achievement award.

The Vivid/Braun co-production Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody, believed to be the most expensive porn parody ever made, was named Best Parody Comedy.

The Dark Knight XXX: A Porn Parody starring Aiden Ashley and Andy San Dimas, was selected as Best Parody Drama.

The Avengers XXX: A Porn Parody, another high-budget, sexy superhero-themed spoof from Braun that starred Chyna, Brooklyn Lee and Danni Cole, was chosen as Best Parody Superheroes.

It is the latest in a string of achievements for Braun with Vivid, including the awarding of the coveted 5-A rating by AVN for their last five movies.

“It’s a tremendous honor and quite a thrill to be recognized for doing something I love,” said Braun, who was accompanied at the awards ceremony by his contract girl Aiden Ashley. “These awards belong to my awesome crew, to all the loyal fans who constantly support me, and to Steven and Marci Hirsch and everybody at Vivid, the company that made all this possible,” he added.

 

The Dark Knight XXX gets ‘5A’ AVN Review

AXEL BRAUN EARNS FOURTH CONSECUTIVE ‘5A’ AVN REVIEW IN A YEAR FOR VIVID’S “THE DARK KNIGHT XXX”

The Dark Knight XXX: A Porn Parody, the newest adult parody from Axel Braun and Vivid Entertainment, has earned the coveted AAAAA critical rating from AVN.com, the website of Adult Video News. It is the fourth consecutive release from Braun and Vivid to earn AVN’s highest rating in the past 12 months.

Dark Night XXX

Within the last year, Braun has earned 5A ratings for Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody; Avengers XXX: A Porn Parody and Spider-Man XXX: A Porn Parody, which won 2012 AVN Awards in the Best Parody-Drama, and Best Cinematography categories. Braun also won the Director of the Year-Body of Work award for the second year in a row.

It is quite a thrill to see my movies be so successful both financially and critically,” said Braun. “I have the constant support of an amazing company, and the priceless help of a terrific crew. We all work very hard to bring these projects to life and to make them as entertaining and as exciting as possible, and receiving a ‘perfect review’ from AVN is an incredible honor.

In his review of The Dark Knight XXX: A Porn Parody, writer Carlos Colon said, “Axel Braun handles the gloomy seriousness of Christopher Nolan’s Batman universe every bit as deftly here as he did the Technicolor campiness of the ’60s TV show in 2011 AVN Best Parody – Comedy winner Batman XXX: A Porn Parody.”  He added, “For those disappointed by (the mainstream) Dark Knight Rises—and there are many—this may serve as a refreshing antidote. For others just seeking some red-hot Bat-action, they’ll be downright enthralled. Either way, the ending leaves things wide open for a sequel, so expect more Dark Knight dirtiness to come.”

 

The Dark Knight XXX Gets Rave Reviews

RAVE REVIEWS AND RECORD SALES FOR AXEL BRAUN’S “THE DARK KNIGHT XXX” FROM VIVID ENTERTAINMENT

DVD copies of “The Dark Knight XXX: A Porn Parody,” began arriving in adult stores across the country today and were immediately scooped up by an eager public. Early reviews raved about the film, directed by Axel Braun and distributed by Vivid Entertainment, which has been available online at vivid.com since July 10th.

“Great great sex and really phenomenal costumes,” reviewer Christopher Thorne wrote in XCritic.com, one of the premier sites devoted to reviews of adult movies. “‘The Dark Knight’ is shot extremely well and has the look and feel of a major production. The real highlight of the film is the end action scenes which shows off what Axel Braun can really do,” Thorne added as he gave the film a “highly recommended” rating.

Art Koch gave the movie “5 out of 5 Stars” in All Adult Network and Night Moves Magazine, noting, “Just when you think nothing can be topped, Axel Braun comes along and presents the ‘The Dark Knight: A Porn Parody.’ The talk, buzz, and hype have been going on for months about this film and it certainly lives up to all of it and more. ‘The Dark Knight XXX’ is a must see, so run, do not walk to your favorite video store when this film hits the streets in a few days. It is destined to be a porn film classic.”

The movie has already attracted mainstream attention, such as a story on popular website Ain’t It Cool that noted, “whatever one may think of ‘porn’ on the whole…Axel is 1) an uber-Geek with both an understanding of/respect for the source material he lampoons; and 2) cares enough to bring surprisingly high quality design and production value to his projects.” Jack Trigger of MajorSpoilers.com, called the movie an “awesomely awesome bit of awesome.”

In the article “A is for Alfred, B is for Batmobile: Dark Knight A-Z”, Australian mainstream outlet NEWS.com.au has the following at the letter X: “You know your career is in a bad place when a porn film looks better than your multi-million dollar, star-studded, Hollywood films. Costume shots from Axel Braun’s Batman porn parody The Dark Knight XXX caused a stir on geek site Ain’t It Cool – but not because they were shocking or explicit, but because they looked frighteningly good. “Already looks better than the Schumacher films” was the damning comment.

Braun — who won 2012 AVN Award for the Best Parody, Best Parody Drama and Best Cinematography categories and earned the Director of the Year (Body of Work) award for the second year in a row – said he was thrilled with the early response to the film. “From everything I’m hearing we are also shattering records for adult DVD sales and streaming downloads from vivid.com. We put a lot of passion into this film, so the early response is very gratifying.

 

Axel Braun claims Star Wars XXX is Most Expensive Adult Film Ever Made

In a recent interview on Vice.com, director Axel Braun claims that Star Wars XXX is the most expensive adult film ever made, yet he won’t say how much was spent. [source]

It boasts the highest budget of any porn movie ever made. How much was spent in making this thing? Enough to blow away any porn movie ever made.”

Of course most people know that he isn’t saying how much the most cost to make because he’s full of shit about it being the highest budget of any porn movie ever made.  We’ve all know that for years Axel Braun has gotten a little creative with things like his resume but this newest claim puts a whole new light on his shit talking.

On YouTube he says it again …

With the highest budget ever for an X-rated spoof, an all-star cast, and award-winning director Axel Braun’s legendary attention to detail, STAR WARS XXX: A PORN PARODY, a joint venture between Axel Braun Productions and Vivid Entertainment, is poised to become the most successful Adult movie of all times.

Funny how quick he is to make these budgetary claims, yet he won’t exactly back them up with any facts or figures.  Does he mean overall budget?  Product budget?  Post-production budget?  I mean look at Pirates, they spent a lot of money with their special effects, but in the end, twice as much money was spent on marketing than on the movie itself.  Look at mega productions like BatFXXX with it’s mega budget for special effects and Bonny and Clide from Bluebird Films.  I think I heard that Bonny and Clide had something like 60 cast members in all.  And let’s not forget all the period costumes, location changes and authentic props like cars from that period in history who no doubt alone, cost more than many gonzo movies cost to make.

So is Axel Braun saying that he not only knows how much Bluebird Films spent on making those movies but that his movie cost more?
