Definition and history, publication channels of Pornography

wanker (@wanker) · · 11 · 8

The word “pornography” comes from the Greek “porneia” (prostitution) and “graphein” (to illustrate, to record). It generally means the description and illustration of sexual content in order to stimulate sexual desire in the viewers, readers, and listeners. It is often classed as erotica, but it shows a lot more and does it so in a far more natural way while focusing on the genitals and the “action” itself. It is used for bringing our sexual desires to life, it is not in any way trying to imply that what we see is exactly as it happens during lovemaking, but it is the product of our wildest fantasies. There has been depictions of sexual acts since the ancient times, still, we can only speak of modern pornography from the nineteenth century.

The first officially published pornographic book, the “Fanny Hill – Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure”, was written and brought out by John Cleland in 1748 (he was put to jail for this later).

Until the end of the 1800s sexual content was only available in writing, on drawings, paintings, engravings and statues, but with the invention of motion picture everything has changed. The “forefather” of the modern pornographic films is the French “Le Coucher de la Mariée” (Bedtime for the Bride), which was born in 1896, in the era of the silent films. With today’s eyes it might be an overstatement to call this a porn movie, there has only been one scene that is worth mentioning; a mild striptease from Louise Willy. All the way up to the seventies it was forbidden to make and distribute porn movies, so smugglers were selling them for big money, but as censorship was introduced it slowly started to become available to the masses too, which had led to the rise of the porn industry. The first serious movie in the trade was the Deep Throat from 1972, where the story and the characters had also been given some thought to, it can be considered as the beginning of the Golden Age of Porn. The variety of the “products” available had changed considerably since then, as well as the data mediums which contain pornography. The public quickly got bored with the stills of the magazines and posters, movies were the way to go.

These first appeared on VHS, for which a very easy copying method was invented, later the CD came, which again was easy to distribute (for free) by copying. It is interesting to see how great an effect the porn had on the evolution of these mediums, it played a significant part in choosing the succeeding new formats (the big HD format war between HD DVD and Blu-ray for instance). With the advance of technology in computer science and home entertainment new forms of porn products had appeared, and the invention of Internet helped spreading the new crazes; we could even buy 3D sex videos and interactive DVD-s.

One of the biggest disadvantage of the internet is that it makes it unbelievably easy to distribute “free porn” without making an effort, causing damages to the studios, actresses and producers. Good examples are the “xvideos.com”, “xhamster.com”, etc. video sharing websites that contain thousands of free videos. Of course, porn could not easily be killed by such sources of free porn, there are always a few great players who can keep their heads above the water (brazzers.com). The success of this company resides in working with the sexiest, most talented actresses, choosing great themes for their films, and producing them to a very high standard, and they are also very good at keeping the illegal distribution of their movies at bay. Apart from the movies we can choose from sexy card games (strip poker) and other games that we can play on our smartphones or computers. It is worth mentioning the erotic cartoons, especially the famous and special erotic manga and anime (so called “hentai”) comic books, animations, and games, and although it is not mainstream in Europe it is a vital part of the porn trade in Japan.

Pornoghraph is the neccessary evil! It helps youngsters understand the sex between a man and a woman, an dwell, sometimes between a man and a man and a shemale and a man! Also, escorts study porn movies to realize and learn what kind of things their regular customers want to see when meeting a sexy escort in Stockholm! They have to keep up with the trends to stay on top of the competition! I think it is a great thing to be able to access porn on the internet!

This is a great post! I think we have to talk more about pronoghraphy to really understand it! It is not something we can completely ignore, as it is connected to the escorts and prostitutes and it affects our children and the adults as well! many youngsters learn sex from porn, and those who watch hard porn, they see the different fetishes in the first time in their lives in action! Those Stockholm escorts who offer these services have to learn about tat too, if they want to remain competent!

Porn means everything to me. I go to bed with porn, and I wake up with porn! I watch porn all day long, and when I am really horny, I call up some of the sexiest Stockholm escort girls, and I start trying out different positions and fetishes with them, everything I see in porn! Without internet, this would not be possible for me! The reason for that is that internet porn is free! I do not have enough money to buy premium porn stuff, like DVDs or stream premium movies online, I need the money for the escorts!

If it was not for porn, I would not have been able to learn how to have sex with my first girlfriend! Seriously, she was a super hot sexy Stockholm escort girl, who took away my virginity, and when she bent over for me, I did not know what to do, or at least I could not have done it without watching it in pron first! So I guess it is a great thing for the young teenager to have porn so accessible, and you can watch it in private on your smartphone nowadays!

Guys, if there had not been porn in my childhood already I would not have known how to fuck a girl properly! It is great that porn is accessible, and it has so many different genres, that really anyone can find a fetish that they like! I think I like BDSm very much, but it is very hard to find a girl, who does not think that I am sick in the head for enjoying being spanked in the ass and being tied up! I think it is the porn that prepares us for the adult life, and it is a rat source of information for the escorts as well!

I think the porn movies are perfect base for the sexual education of the people! The main thing is that without porn, the teenagers would not be able to learn and see the basics of the anal sex for example, or the girls would not be able to learn how to perform deepthroat! The Internet is great help in all this, you basically only need a smartphone and you can stream all the hard stuff you want and watch it online! Escorts also learn positions from porn movies!

Porn is the best thing to enjoy when you are bored and when you need to learn a little bit more about special forms of sex! The reason why I love porn, is because it is so natural, you can see everything, where they put it, how they do it, what kind of positions they use and so on! Now that nearly everyone in the world has Internet access, the porn videos are readily available for the masses! No limit, just pure porn!

it is true that pron has come a long way since its "invention"! But I do not mind! Before people did not know anything about sex and porn and fetishes and all that, and now a lot of the stuff is availéable for them to learn and research, adn pronographic ontent is a rgeat source of information, even if it is not always 100 percent accurate! So I hope this trend will continue to improve, and the escorts girls in Stockholm get more familiar with porn stuff as well!

Pornography is the best thing that has happened to the men! It is great to see the revolution in which newer and better porn products have been invented. think about the most recent stuff, the VR porn! It is basically porn virtual reality! You can put on your VR glasses and enjoy a sensual session with your favorite pornstar! Just you and her! Is it not exciting this? I wonder what comes next though! It surely will be cool!

It is interesting to see how the channel of publication have changed over the years, and clearly, the invention of the internet made the biggest change in all that! The freedom of information, and access to all content! Escorts now advertise online, and porn movies can be not only downloaded, but streamed!!! The best thing about it that all you need is a mobile phone and an internet connection, and you have yourself a nice little online porn video library!

It is true, that as the technology advances it will be easier and quicker to find new pornogrpaic content, but this is not the only thing about it. It is very difficult to prevent underage teens and children from accessing all these, as on the Internet one fake ad or a wrong click and they end up on pronographic sites, or escort sites! Too many adverts all over the net, and the lack of control means the it is harder to block adult content than it ever was, and it is becoming increasingly difficult!
