porn

As the world ends why don't I discuss something completely pointless? This by way of primer to a story that's taken place here in Australia lately which I shall discuss in the next post.

I don't know that I have any particular point to make here. These are merely a series of observations that will in no way provide any sort of clarity. In fact they'll lead only to questions. In most arguments I find myself in, my position on pretty much any subject is invariably that of - 'It's not that simple'. And so it is with porn.

For the record I've watched a bunch of porn. I can't speak for women, but as a male, porn had this effect of jolting the brain. I still have a sharp memory of breathlessly finding old playboys under the house. Wow! Naked women! And then there was the time a friend, his sister and I bullshitted our way into an R-rated movie. Believe it or not it was WR - Mysteries of the Organism. Ha ha ha, we were so ripped off. Later there was video and I checked out Debbie Does Dallas and all that other low-rent stuff. Ooh! Mr. Greenfeld, what a big cock you have!

At the time I was too busy resembling some sort of fevered Robert Crumb caricature to think about the nature of what I was looking at. But that was a very long time ago. I'm a different fellow now and given to wondering.

Whose life ever resembled a porn movie? Apart from a porn star, that is. You may roll your eyes at the obviousness of this but let's see where it goes. We all know that porn movies are absurdly unreal. People seem to have sex at the drop of a hat for no reason at all. Everyone has huge penises and breasts. They say ridiculous things like, 'Ooh yeah baby, give it to me long and hard!'. I'm uninterested in discussing how many sexual partners I've had but I will say that none of them ever said anything to me like the idiot things one hears in porn movies. For mine, the big difference between actual sex and porn is the overwhelming sense of the falsity of it all.

This is American porn I'm talking about here, which is to say, Jewish porn. The American porn industry is almost entirely Jewish. I'm uninterested in detailing this here. Tons of people have done it already and you're free to google.

Perhaps the single greatest Jewish talent is what I call the 'imagining of the narrative'. Now that I think about it, we could instead call it the 'positing of reality'. Hollywood, television, the media, even the news, is all the same thing. It's all imagining the narrative/positing of reality. And porn is no different.

Amongst this totality of the narrative we're fed, it's difficult to step to one side and get a different view. But it's possible. I did it. I went and lived in Japan. And porn there is different. Sure enough, everything is different in Japan and the effect is quite disorienting. It took me a while to see precisely what the difference was between Japanese porn and American porn, but I did figure it out. It's that the falsity seems broadly to be absent.

- As a side note, let me say that I am in no way encyclopaedic on the subject. I probably know the names of about as many Japanese porn stars as you do American ones. Less, I expect. And those names would date from maybe fifteen years ago. It's something I did and do no longer.

Certainly the stories you've heard are true and there is weird porn in Japan. I recall a mate and I deciding to rent the weirdest looking vid we could find and we ended up fast forwarding through an hour of bodily functions. What was that all about? Do people think this is sexy? Who knows. But this sort of stuff represents an abjectly tiny percentage of porn there.

In amongst the rest of it there is also the kind of porn Westerners would recognise. No one in Japan owns a swimming pool so you won't see the pool cleaning guy, but there are doctors and nurses and bosses and secretaries and all that make-believe stuff.

But there's something else, something I have never seen in American porn. There is a variety of porn there that involves men and women talking to each other. They chat and the men crack jokes and the women laugh. And vice versa. It is emphatically not scripted and bears as close a resemblance to normal people having sex (as I understand it) as is possible. The only difference seemingly being that the people in the vid had a cameraman present.

Beyond this 'normality' in Japan is an even greater difference. American porn is almost entirely 'thrusting' in nature. Even when the woman is on top all one will see is yet more thrusting. What I shall indelicately call 'grinding' seems to be absent in American depictions of sex. Japanese porn, to a degree I've never seen in the Western version, has the woman as an equal partner. Often as not, they enjoy the sex as much as the man. Is it possible that the women in Japanese porn do not utter the absurdities of American porn because they're too busy enjoying themselves? Who knows.

I expect that you're rolling your eyes thinking that it's all fake and I'm too simple to tell the difference - Harry Met Sally, blah blah blah. Bullshit. Watch Japanese porn and see real, unfakable female orgasm. The idea that men can never tell if women have come is a myth completely laid bare in Japanese porn. The female ejaculation I have seen often enough in Japanese videos cannot be faked. If you don't believe me it's because you've never seen it.

I did once see an American vid that loudly announced on its cover that it had female ejaculation. So I rented it. And the fakery I saw was so bad that I knew that the film makers had never seen the real thing. They seemed to imagine that female ejaculate resembles semen and oozes out like some kind of sick-looking discharge. Apart from being repellent it had me shaking my head.

What's going on? Why is honest female orgasm absent from American porn? Why do we all believe that fake is indistinguishable from real? Is the reason American porn stars behave like, well, porn stars ha ha, because they don't know how to enjoy sex? Is there some meaning to this? Or are the Jewish producers of porn ignorant of this aspect of human sexuality? You have to wonder.

And what then am I to make of the also Jewish-led feminist anti-porn movement? You know the one - the Andrea Dworkin all-sex-is-rape kind of thing. As a right-thinking guy I've dutifully sat through any number of documentaries that detailed the ugliness of the porn industry. And sure, I felt bad that I'd been a consumer of it. Porn is an ugly industry and God spare anyone caught up in it. The likelihood of a person coming out it as anything other than a babbling wreck is pretty dim. But a discussion of porn from this angle is flawed. It utterly lacks any mention of what should be significant - that of female enjoyment and orgasm. Since this is completely absent in American porn as anything other than fakery how can the counter discussion make sense? The assumption on which it's based, ie. that there's nothing in it for the women and that it all revolves around the men, seems to take as its unquestionable foundation that American porn is porn - period.

Like I said - It's not that simple. I am unable to articulate any sensible position on the porn industry and their products, as such, apart from saying that I no longer wish to be a consumer of it. But I do have a simple question - Why is honest female enjoyment and orgasm completely and utterly absent from American porn? And what does that mean?

There are about 12,000 porn vids made a year in the US. I wouldn't say anything is completely and utterly absent from American porn.

Japanese porn has often struck me as being bizarre, all bodily functions and schoolgirls in knee socks. American porn is about violence and control, exercised over women of course. If you watch One Night in Paris you can see this control being exercised, and this over one of the richest women in the world. If she succumbs so easily what hope the rest of American womanhod.

Interesting that US porn is controlled by Jews. Maybe that's why they circumcise the males, so they won't be as responsive to control by sex, circumcision as I understand it lessening the tyranny of the male sexual urge. Many a politician has been subverted and controlled by sex. Mossad use it as one of their main weapons as you know.

My mum said to me (once) sex is between your ears. Now my nan would have interpreted that (in light of your article) as 'porn' is in the eye of the beholder. And I know where you are going next essay. Community standards can see children killed and make no comment but heaven help us if a kid’s nipple (or adult’s for that matter) is publicly exposed – don’t forget this’ Aus. mate.
Tell me this isn’t pornographic.

A late rush it seems.

Hello silverfish. It seems you didn't care for the point I made. Or perhaps it escaped you. Did you read past the fifth para? It's hard to tell. Up until then I was conceding the obvious. Following that I attempted to make a point that I hadn't seen made elsewhere. It seems I failed. I'm sorry I wasn't clearer.

Pornstudent - apologies also. I did concede my knowledge is not encyclopaedic. I said that in my travels (my limited travels) I had never seen in American porn what is perfectly common in Japanese porn. Like I said, I found a single example of female ejaculation in American porn and that that was fake.

Let me clarify so that no one misses it. I have sampled a tiny proportion of both American porn and Japanese porn. In the former I found not one example of unfakable female orgasm. In the latter I found many. It's poor of me I know, but I do tend to express opinions on things without having a perfectly exhaustive 100% knowledge of them. BTW - have you, in your porn studies, seen any American porn films that had true female ejaculation? And if so, what percentage of the films you studied would this comprise?

Otherwise in concession to your point about the incompleteness of my knowledge I will concede that I should have substituted 'completely and utterly' with 'staggeringly', or 'almost perfectly', or 'so close to 100% that it's hard to can tell the difference'.

And anon - you arrive at this impression of Japanese porn how, exactly? Would that be by way of the aforementioned Jewish media? Might they wish to shape your view of the Japanese in much the same way as they wish to shape your view of Arabs, Russians, Chinese and every other racial group? The media is a machine to shape your perception. Always.

And in this vein I ask again - why is honest female enjoyment so staggeringly (yay!)absent from American porn, which is to say that part of the Jewish media that deals with graphic displays of sex? Given that people learn about sex from porn why is this aspect of otherwise perfectly possible human sexuality kept from them?

Sir, I read your post to the end and I had no problem with it, as I agree with most of what you said. I do not make it a point of watching porn as I feel that it is simply the lowest form of entertainment, if indeed that term can be used. What I said was meant in jest. Please except my apologies, Damn I hate that word as it sounds like a plea of mercy from your greatest fan.
You posted around 7.24am your time which is about 12.24am my time the day before(weird) and I was a little punchy, again I did not mean to offend,

However having spent some time in south east Asia during the Viet Nam War three years to be exact I must say that I really never could wrap my brain around Asian film or stage, it always seemed so hammed up to me, like a Godzilla movie.

Now having said that I will finish by saying that perhaps I do not watch porn American or otherwise simply because I can’t see myself being turned on by any FUCKING JEW pun totally intended.

I do look forward to your posts, and again I say no offence was intended.

Hey silverfish,

Let's all think nothing of it. I reckon there's a thesis in the way that lightheartedness tends to go astray in electronic communication. Even being well aware of this doesn't seem to help, as was the case with me just now. Yoroshiku.

That being said, you cracked me up in that last piece. Ha!

Off to check my page counter. Unexpected things are occurring pivoting around people searching for 'porn'. Back in a tick.

nobody said...

Actually, I take it back. It's not unexpected. I was initially curious as to who would search for porn on blogspot and why. The answer it seems is - people the world over, ha ha. I could find no discernable pattern amongst who it was. Some of them could be serious people up for a serious discussion and others could be desperate Robert Crumb caricatures, ha ha. For the latter types, if they've read this far, boy, are you in the wrong place.

Just for the record, in case anyone's curious, I do keep track of who hits me. But in no useful fashion. Apart from a single fluke (that time with the CFR guy) I am unable to figure out who's who. Of my regulars, I have no idea where you are or when you visit unless you tell me. And even then I have trouble. Kikz for instance is in Dallas (hey kikz, how you doing?). I know this because she told me. But I have a couple of regulars in Dallas. And which one is kikz? Beats me. And Canada is nuts. It seems maybe a third of my readership is Canadian. I salute them and compliment on their very good taste, ha ha.

Anyway, rest assured with my hit count running between 50 and 100 per day (and climbing it seems) I am pretty much unable to tell anything about anyone. That's not to say that those who run the internet don't know everything there is to know about you. They do, ha ha. But me, I'm clueless.

PS Remember the obvious 'happy to announce their presence' spooks dropping in before? No sign of them for ages. It was that 'gun' piece that did it. Since then they've shown no interest.

PPS Wait till you see the title of my next piece. The search engines will go nuts, ha ha. Sure enough the sweaty types will be sadly disappointed.

I enjoyed your post and didn't mean to criticize it.

I don't know what a true female ejaculation looks like. All the "squirting" porn is supposed to be it. I've been doubting that. I've seen what was said to be females cuming with gobs of white stuff oozing from their pussies. Was that it? From my own experience I've never seen a women squirting or a whole lot of oozing. I've seen some oozing. Tell me, what does a true ejaculation look like?

About American porn not showing women enjoying sex: From my experience with sex, it's not like the ladies were laughing and smiling during sex. They need to concentrate on their orgasm. Their mouths are usually opened and their brows furrowed. It doesn't look like there is much enjoyment. Maybe it has to do with their personalities, or me.

I read this yesterday, and I dunno.

Porn is simply not my forte.


Your point about the 'conversations' that take place was pretty humourous.

Interesting,in general, but, having limited exposure to it, and being a woman, what I have seen of it, has been mostly dumb and monotonous.

I do think it is made by men, for a male audience.

For the record it resembles a spritz of water. I just put female ejaculation into wikipedia and there's details there.

I recall now a case in Australia where a woman sued her gynaecologist on account of the nature of his answering her question about the g-spot and internal orgasm. In amongst explaining it to her he brought her to orgasm. She hadn't asked for this and felt angry and embarassed that he'd just gone ahead and done so. She won the case. Interpret this as you will.

hmmm.. american porn

porn in general....decidedly not my cup o tea... i equate it w/the jew made goy-teen slasher flicks. there is no worthy message.

male jew portrayal of goy sex. we're animals (cattle) remb? we are portrayed as such, singularly dimensional. if there is any additional layering, it is always of an abnormal & deviant nature.

most porn is made by and for males.

culturally/racially/
spiritually......... what is the message?

you are an animal in human form, and have no care for your females other than as objects w/which to gratify your most base/lowest desires, this is the entirety of your existence and focus and is the natural order of things.

...denigrate your women, yourselves and your entire culture.
the best part... you'll gladly pay us in gold to reinforce this denigration across not only your culture but that of the world, turning what was once considered sacred into the profane.


had a busy wk noby...ok though... i read les is on hiatus for a while.

nobody said...

kikz, you are the business, mate. I like to be a little elliptical and then wait to see what pops up in the comments. Every now and then someone makes a contribution that says it better than I could. And you're it. Hats off.

And Les is taking a break? Swine! I only say that because I'm envious. If I had something resembling a life, I'd do the same. I'll pop over and wish him well.

Now. Let's see who I appal with my next effort.
