Adult Empire’s 2016 Swipe Right

Come late-December, every media outlet scrambles to assemble some short-sighted year-end review and adult entertainment is no different than any other industry. Adult Empire, one of the few indispensable outlets of porn-related news and knowledge, also released its annual report of porn trends and highlighted a few developments we at Mr. Pink’s have also been reporting on.

Adult Empire Best of 2016

Adult Empire’s report, 2016: The Best of the Best, details fan-favorite performers, and both home video and Video-On-Demand releases while a second report, 2016: Top Trends on AE, lists the top top trending pornstars, DVD genres, studios, and adult search terms. Among the clear winners were many acclaimed stars and studios – Julia Ann and Alexis Texas; gonzo and anal porn; Evil Angel and Wicked Pictures, for example – as well as a few more recent trends. Interracial sex and fucking a “family” member both came out of 2016 more popular than ever with Greg Lansky’s Blacked and fetish performer Jodi West trending hard in their respective categories. Blacked and Tushy, Lansky’s anal series, also cleaned up in the DVD and VOD departments, though it’s the latter viewing platform that is attracting viewers of more varied taste. (Trans, lesbian, and European titles occupy more top slots in VOD than in physical sales.)

Romantic erotic hardcore with artful cinematography also proved a itself a strong-selling niche this year, as Adult Empire’s rankings show. The Submission of Emma Marx: Exposed, a BDSM-heavy feature from New Sensations tied with Blacked’s Interracial Orgies as DVD title with the longest reign at #1 – five weeks while also tying for first place in the VOD report.

What do these notable trends of last year mean for adult entertainment in 2017? That is still a little murky if you go by AE’s twin reports. There’s no mention of 4K, UHD, VR, or 3D as trending search terms and Camille Adore isn’t exactly roaring up the most-searched-for pornstar listings (not yet), but those things seemed certain to be huge in the new year. Are the pollsters wrong about this, too? Will porn viewers really ignore all the latest techno-trends and continue selecting their porn for its (gasp) content? Only time (and future Adult Empire reports) will tell.

The XXX-Mas Festivities Continue

Holly Hendrix Jules Jordan

There’s no shortage of Christmas porn being produced this year by the big guns of adult entertainment. And though you really should check out Mr. Pink’s blogs on the yuletide smut just unleashed by Brazzers, Spizoo, Lubed, and Holed, there’s more holly-dappled hardcore on the way from some other major contributors to your carnal entertainment.

Those interracially motivated deviants at Dogfart have roped in a shaven-headed elf by the name of Riley Nixon to show Santa’s appreciation for good guy Lexington Steele’s standup behavior all year. Inside a ribbon-wrapped box underneath his tree, Riley is waiting to pounce and give Lex the perfect ending to his year.

Another devoted cultivator of hardcore content, Jules Jordan, has also snagged his viewers a bubbly little bundle of Christmas cheer in Holly Hendrix, whose neglected asshole is the focus of her Christmas wishes. With Steve Holmes donning the Santa suit, the dark-eyed burgeoning superstar will definitely see her wish granted.

Not content to let other studios have all the fun, Reality Kings has aimed its festive focus on the Monster Curves of Nikki Capone, who greets her husband Ramon Nomar in a Christmas outfit (if you can call it that) that should help reignite the lust her overworked husband has recently lacked.

Arguably the most convincingly elven pornstar working today, Piper Perri stopped by Passion HD to deliver a gift to Johnny Castle, decorating their bed and her body with red-and-white accouterments before simply laying back to anticipate his reaction. Gee, I wonder if he’ll be appreciative enough to give Piper a gift of her own…

The usually hyper-festive Team Skeet has only one entrant into the holiday festivities this year, a candy-cane heavy Teen Curves scene starring rising Latina Demi Lopez and her “bodacious” rear. With oil on her ass and “snowflakes” of cum on her face, the costumed newcomer more than makes up for Team Skeet’s unusually sedate pre-Christmas schedule.

Those viewers seeking something more firmly rooted in reality won’t find it in GirlsWay’s original mini-series Christmas Spirit. Loosely, very loosely based on the revered Dickens classic, the three-part drama sees Shyla Jennings returning home from college to see here stepmom, Reena Sky, for the holidays. With her father recently passed, Shyla turns to her girlfriend, Elle Alexandra, for comfort. This is something of a shock to her stepmom, who that night receives a visitation from Charlotte Stokely’s Ghost of Christmas Past, a vision of circumstances far more salacious than any other version of A Christmas Carol I’m aware of.

There’s bound to be a few other holiday fuck-taculars trickling online the closer we inch toward the 25th, but those I’ll leave to you to find. Me, I’ll be too busy trying to squeeze a little nutrition into a traditional American Christmas feast and avoid whichever relative polished off my booze stash.

From all of us at Mr. Pink’s, whatever holiday you’re celebrating this season, or if you’re celebrating none at all, we hope it’s a good one for you and yours.
