Porn vs Erotica

For some people, the terms porn and erotica are practically interchangeable. It is after all, all about sex, right?

Wrong.

Now, the following is my opinion, so take or leave at your leisure.

Porn is blunt. Unscripted. In-your-face. Badly-lit. Badly-acted. Badly-directed… do you see where I am going with this?

Of course, porn is also all over the net. I have to agree with someone who said that the internet was made for porn.

Erotica is subtle. Designed. Sexy. Oh yes, and it also has a decent storyline.

Now that does not mean you won’t get XXX rated shows/books with erotica, because you will.

But the fact is – there seems to be this idea that with porn you don’t really have to put much money into it, because people will pay for it anyway. Sad, but true. Have you checked out some of the porn sites online? The only ones worth watching, imo, are the amateur/non-professional shots, because they aren’t supposed to look good. Plus, they aren’t being ‘acted’ so they don’t appear fake.

Yes, porn looks fake.

But what if it didn’t have to?

See now, this is what I am getting to. What if we could have well-scripted, well-lit, well-directed, well-edited videos online that not only showed xxx sex in a more intimate, more erotic way, but would be eye-catching and look good enough for  feature-film or at least for TV? Storylines where you became involved with the characters and rooted for them just like you do in your favorite novels? Episodes that left you talking about them with your friends afterward because the heroes and heroines are just so real?

Would that appeal to you? I know it would me.

Stay with me folks. This is one of the things I am working on. Interested? leave a comment and I will contact you when things get off the ground.
