Not a while nude film either, great plot and story.

I was revolted by almost all the participants with the exception of the woman who became a doctor and the East German girl.

There really isn't much else to say or anything to take away from this.

This is definitely a niche documentary, if you are interested in some excellent interviews with people who work in the (straight) porn industry then I can't recommend it more.

However the casual viewer might be a bit offended at some of the parts, not in a visual, pornographic way, but just at the issues that plague the industry.

There are some rather raunchy scenes, but these are short and more underline the effect of the movie than any attempt to be pornographic in itself.

Interesting look at L.A.'s porn industry with many raunchy scenes of hard core porn as it is being made. I found it a bit boring. There were alternating scenes of the porn being made, which often made me tense up at the painful images, and scenes of pretty houses and nice cars which they enjoyed as proceeds of their work.

I'm not sure why the filmaker found it necessary to show some particularly degrading physically violent scenes of naked women being almost tortured. The women didn't seem to mind in the least so apparently I'm just not "with" it, or at least that was the feeling I think I was supposed to come away with. I can't recommend this film and wish I hadn't watched it but I did and now I have some new things to think about that are mildly depressing to me. Pain and degradation is the norm here and the actors showed zero reactions to it.

Also constantly referring to the women as "whores" was repulsive and contemptuous. All the men were ugly, a few hideously so, and most of the women were pretty or beautiful. One incredibly gross looking little man who was an agent for the women kept calling them whores, and the filmaker kept saying "find me some whores" and he too was ugly and I was thinking how much easier it is to exploit another human being when you think of them as less than human.

They mentioned making three hundred and fifty dollars up to a whopping five hundred dollars. A big name was going to get the huge sum of two thousand five hundred dollars. One porn star said she can make more as an escort in a week than she can make doing porn in a month, with less sex and more fun. She seemed to be one of the few that was rational.

Who were these young women and why were they doing this?

The film was fairly good and even educational. The film covers some of the biggest names in the business and was well made. Hazards specific to the industry, how family and friends react to what they do for a living, the typical pay, their personal romantic lives, and what happens when people leave the industry were all covered. It was however a little too long for my tastes, almost too exhaustive. I found myself looking at my watch about an hour into it.

Although there was plenty of nudity and fair amount of sex, it was all within the context of the documentary so don't expect to see even a 10 second sex scene. And even the sex scenes shown generally have the film crew obscuring the action. I think the film would have been better had they moved a step or two closer to making this film porn.

The documentary thoroughly investigates the porn industry, without flinching from showing its seamier side as well as performers during sex scenes. Although objective and non-judgmental, it also seemed rather unsatisfying for not getting underneath the surface of the industry, particularly what exactly draws women into it and how they get there. Numerous porno actors are interviewed, but the film producer seemed to accept especially the women's explanations at face value. Belladonna, for example, is heavily featured, as someone who is acting rationally, is happily married, and is raising a daughter. I saw another documentary, however, in which Belladonna started crying over the estrangement from her family and her sense of shame. Of course, porn actresses will try to present themselves in the best way possible, but what is the truth beneath their spin? I've read a report that Jenna Jameson, for example, was raped by her boyfriend's father while in high school, and then entered the porn industry. The film producer was too gullible and swallowed too easily the explanations that porn is like any other economic activity, without following some of the more interesting counterpoints that are briefly touched upon in the film.

This is not a porn movie. It's a documentary. It is insightful as to what actually goes on in the industry. Actual married couples were interviewed on their work in the industry and their partners work. Diseases were touched on and the mentality of the people in that industry. Not the best documentary. But I got it for free with a trial.

While it was a little long this showed the reality of the porn industry, and while not trying to be preachy it tells the world what we basically already know - that people, especially women, are objects to be used and then discarded when done with.

Throughout the film each woman pretty much said the same thing: "I choose to do this because I'm strong and confident, no one controls me etc etc etc", and they may have convinced themselves of that but looking at their faces I got a strong feeling that deep down they knew it was a lie. They may make quite a bit of money for each scene they rarely (if ever) see any more income once the film is released, and any still images can be used in any way the company decides yet they don't receive compensation for that. The men behind the scenes are the ones who profit the greatest. So to say they aren't being used, controlled or exploited is a fantasy on their part.

I don't feel any disdain for any of the people in the film with one exception: Otto. I could go on and on about how he made my skin crawl just listening to him but I can sum him up in one word: scumbag.
