Vivid’s Survey Says… Pt. 2

Vivid XCriticAfter unveiling some of the more surprising results from their first few surveys of porn viewers, Vivid Entertainment and XCritic dug even deeper to discover just how much porn people are watching, why they watch what they watch, and who they’re most likely to while away the hours watching fuck on their TV or computer screen.

– Two-time AVN Female Performer of the Year, Tori Black was voted the most popular female star, followed by Lexi Belle and Kayden Kross.
– Jenna Haze beat out Mason, Joanna Angel, parody maestro Axel Braun, B. Skow, and Robby D. as everyone’s favorite director; a huge relief for Ms. Haze, I’m sure, consider directing is all she does these days.
– More than half of respondents use blogs and Twitter to keep tabs on and interact with their favorite performers.
– Star performers also proved to be the most significant motivating factor in fans’ deciding to buy a particular release.
– Viewers clearly use porn for inspiration as well as masturbation, with well over half of respondents trying positions and moves from porn with a partner and noting that their efforts were very successful!
– Most viewers consider themselves moderate watchers of porn and regard it as a positive contribution to our collective culture.

Most notable, though, was the overwhelmingly positive response to the idea of dating a pornstar, with more than 85% of respondents claiming they’d be ok with dating a woman who fucks other men on camera for a living. And, even more surprisingly, more than 60% of viewers would be so comfortable with such a situation they’d even marry their theoretical pornstar girlfriend. That’s certainly one result I didn’t see coming!

Vivid and XCritic continue their joint mission to investigate and elucidate the culture of porn. Pornstars around the country, meanwhile, are fending off proposals of marriage with surprising dexterity and effectiveness. (Although Twitter’s ‘block user’ function surely helps.)

Vivid’s Survey Says… Pt. 1

Vivid XCriticFor the past few months, porn’s most well-known studio, Vivid Entertainment has been joining forces with XCritic to conduct a comprehensive survey of porn viewers, their habits, their preferences, and their opinions about the numerous factors that define how porn is produced, for whom, and for what specific purpose. Does anyone still watch DVDs? Are MMF threesomes more popular than FFM threesomes? Would home viewers perform in an adult feature if it didn’t require sex? What if it did?

XCritic has been slowly releasing the results of the polls and some of the answers have been quite surprising.

– More than 1/3rd of respondents still watch retail DVDs over online, digitally distributed content.
– Despite the continued rise of gonzo, a feature production is still the most watched porn format.
– Although double-penetration scenes have become more commonplace over the past few years, most guys still prefer two girls and one guy in threesome scenes.
– More than half of respondents claim to be always aroused when viewing porn, meaning blood is flowing away from other areas of the body to keep an erection, possibly to the detriment of logical and critical faculties; hence: your regrettable Coke bottle “accident”.
– Most respondents believe the amalgamation of Internet and television will result in more porn viewing.
– Lindsay Lohan is the celeb most desired to be seen fucking in a sex tape, low-res cell-phone footage or not.
– The most popular porn categories were anal and girl-girl, apparently by a huge margin.
– Almost half the men responding would take a non-sexual role in an adult production, while nearly 40% would say yes to a sexual role!
– And, perhaps most surprisingly of all, more than 73% of respondents do not hide their porn viewing, with more than a third enjoying porn with a significant other.

Vivid and XCritic are continuing their polling, so keep your eyes peeled on Mr. Pink’s for more results as they roll in.

The Couple That Shoots Porn Together…

LeWoodAfter the September release of their Anal Hazing Crew feature confirmed their strong association with Evil Angel and Gamma Entertainment, performers, directors, and spouses Mark Wood and Francesca Le now celebrate another milestone in their rapidly ascending careers: their very own website.

LeWood is now online and takes a multi-handed approach to hardcore, featuring work directed by and often starring either Francesca Le, Mark Wood, or both. Focusing on hard lesbian scenes, anal sex, MILF-fucking, and plenty more, LeWood’s vignette-style DVD releases and their digitally distributed equivalents are a perfect fit for Evil Angel’s growing ranks of master directors. “After many years, we finally have another way to reach our fans,” Wood said, his wife adding that the site would be an intimate, if not exactly comforting, look inside their sex lives professional and otherwise. “Everybody will get to see all the naughty stuff that goes on behind closed doors at Casa de LeWood. We look forward to bringing you even filthier content from the freakiest real-life couple in porn.”

She’s not wrong there, folks! Few porn couples have lasted as long as LeWood or have had as substantial success as a unit, with only Audrey Hollander and Otto Bauer as genuine competition. Tera Patrick and Evan “Spyder Jonez” Seinfeld managed to keep their professional relationship going long after their personal one ended in divorce, Kobe Tai and Mark Davis’s marriage didn’t survive the often tumultuous porn life, and after divorcing, Nacho Vidal and Belladonna kept their professional work separate, too. LeWood, however, seems to be going from strength to strength, even using a Brangelina, Kimye-style portmanteu as their professional name, the ultimate sign of celebrity relationship stability!

LeWood is now online and updating daily. Look for a full porn review coming soon from Mr. Pink’s!
