Porn Like Grandma Used To Make

insideseka.jpgI read this article, Whatever Happened To Porn Like Grandma Used To Make? and found myself nodding in agreement. Oh. no, not that I ever watched any porn back in the 70s, of course not, but I know something about it, particularly from my job here at YBNBY. The author laments the loss of style in today's porn, in cutting corners from the settings, crew, craftsmanship, direction, and especially the stars.

Old porn stars were like a theater collective. A group of artists dedicated to the work and craft of boner films. A group of young performers coming together to make the dirty movies of their dreams. Out of these small troupes, stars emerged as bright as any old Hollywood ever produced. Marilyn Chambers, Seka, John Holmes, Ron Jeremy; larger than life figures who made putting on a filthy raincoat and going to a dingy theater feel like a real night out. Who couldn't help but be swept up in the glamor and glitz behind the red door?

We understand that feeling here at YBNBY. We've certainly done our share of nostalgic posts on the subject, as the links list below will tell you. At the same time, I started laughing at myself because of the curmudgeon stereotype. "Things were better in my day! People took pride in their work! Craftsmanship has gone to hell in a hand basket! They don't make stuff like that no more! All you see is crap!"

I suppose we all reach the age where that comes natural sooner or later. For more porn nostalgia, see:

Least appealing headline ever. (No offence Ms C).

No offense taken! I just shortened the headline of the linked article. Blame THAT GUY!

I think the headline has mass-appeal.

Given the headline, I'm surprised you didn't link to our Top Ten GILFs post.
