In the O’Toole reading for this week I thought was interesting because it took you deeper into what goes on behind the scenes in the porn industry. Talking about the different types of porn and the production of the AD 6969. I didn’t think that the article was very focused. There were so many different things that it talked about that I felt like it was a summary of what we have talked about in the last few lectures. It was more a summary of what O’Toole experiences and knew about the business. I thought it was interesting that he didn’t watch when the porn sense was being shot. The idea that porn on film and porn in real life is very different. The distance that having it be on video provides is important. I don’t know how many of us could watch it being filmed right in front of us and enjoy it. The article talking about so many different issues displayed the complexity of porn. The idea that it really isn’t just a fun sex party on tape was portrayed. Understanding all these different issues like safety, the aspects that both men and women bring to the set, and the money and resources that are necessary to make the film are all very detailed and important. Another interesting point was about the distribution by mail and that if they send this pornographic video to the wrong place they can be trouble and sued for a lot of money. I never thought of that.
