Proud Recipient, and "Celebrating the Porn Blog!"

As I was gearing up to write a list of the top porn blogs (and I mean *actual* blogs, not simply free porn), I received this Honest Scrap award from one of my favourite bloggers, X-Ray at XXX Marks the Plot, a blog I check every time I'm online. 

Before I move on to my obligatory duties, I would like to a take a moment to say that there are very few serious blogs discussing pornographic film (of course, your definition of this might differ from mine or someone else's, but I'm talking about the shit you buy at the XXX store, regardless of the many interesting and provocative discussions we might have about what constitutes "the pornographic"). 

I'll add to that, that it's not an easy task writing about porn, particularly for someone who takes it seriously. I often find myself wondering where a porn review becomes pornographic itself, especially since I have started writing reviews for customer-based sites. Either way, we should celebrate our porn bloggers - all of y'all who have your millions of horror blogs, spare a thought for us nerds who feel the same way about a money shot as you do about a decapitation (and I know - I love horror and porn almost equally).

Ok, so, my duties are as follows: 
1) Link back to the awarder's site.
2) Pass the award on to 10 other blogger sites that are deserving
3) List10 honest things about yourself

Well, Mr. X-Ray (and, not forgetting his wonderful wife) have already been credited...so here goes...

1) I check out Violet Blue's prolific posts whenever I'm on line, and I appreciate her feminist perspective on porn and all things sexual, even if I don't agree with her 100% of the time. Ok, so I often disagree with her, but for me that's the great thing about feminism - it's a dialogue y'heard?!

2) I snubbed Mr. Bugg's award he gave me a while back, and felt bad for it ever after, so here is his well-deserved honor for being a fun and consistent horror (and other stuff) blog. He has been a constant supporter of mine - Bugg, you're great!

3) Not exactly a blog, but a podcast and sort-of-blog, Porn++, provides me with ample entertainment and interesting porn movie reviews on a weekly basis. And I'm talking about over an hour of detailed reviews - there really isn't much else like this out there. The only drawbacks are their limited taste in women/films (less so the main host), and their apparent distaste for replying to my emails (hey, they read my email out on their show - what more can I want?? Look - I'm a nerd till I die, and I hardly have anyone to talk to about porn who knows a shit. They have 20,000 listeners, so who the fuck am I, right?). Bottom line: they talk extensively and in detail about porn movies, and I credit them with getting me to buy Kristina Rose; Dirty Girl. 

4) I usually swing by Movies About Girls, simply because they always cover interesting films, and occasionally they throw me a bone by covering a porno that I've seen and think no one else knows what I'm talking about. That whole "The kind men like" tagline is way too heterosexist for me though!

5) I'm excited to have discovered The Action Effect, simply because there are too few action movie blogs out there. It's well written and I'm happy to have someone to share my muscle-bound enthusiasm with.

6) Ok, this next one is said with hope in my heart that they will actually pull their socks up and write a fucking review some time soon. Mr. Roger Feelbert at Pornonomy, you have been warned. Write that god damned Frat House review already!!

7) A lady I have a soft spot for, and go through her good times and bad, Ms. CSMC, here's to you!

8). A woman's perspective is important to me, and for this reason (and for it being so unabashedly declared), I nominate Day of the Woman. But she better cut out that "anti-feminine" shit she blogged about a couple weeks back - you can redefine the feminine!

9) Chris at Horror Dose has always kept me in the loop regarding horror (old and new), and most importantly he always gets back to his fans, which makes all the difference. 

10) Mr. Astro at The Cheap Bin has made his presence known to me by showing some knowledge of quality porn - and he has his own trash to talk about too. Kudos Mr. Astro, and thank you for making me feel less alone in my viewing habits.

11) Finally, I am nominating the Next Great Porn Blog, in hopes that someone out there will start their own blog that deals with the much-maligned, much-misunderstood and trivialized genre that is pornography.

Oh, and now I have to say ten things about myself that are honest...hmmm...

1) I find Manuel Ferrara delectably hot.
2) I am incredibly envious of Mason, but at the same time suspect I wouldn't be courageous enough to do what she does.
3) I wish I had a close group of friends I could talk to about porn.
4) I worry porn is headed in a disappointing and disconcerting direction.
5) I expect too much from people.
6) I genuinely love life, art, and people, but I spend a lot of time spewing hatred and cynicism. It's fun!
7) I spend what little money I have irresponsibly.
8) I like collecting things like a pack rat.
9) I'm proud of my many scars and injuries.
10) I not-very-secretly think I'm a bad ass, but even deeper I fear I would likely get my ass beat when it came down to it.

J. Astro said...

Thanks for the nod! Finally, my years & years of accumulated porn knowledge gets me the recognition I crave! ;)

No problem! Porn enthusiasts (not to be confused with misogynistic, homophobic creeps) don't get enough credit, in my opinion.

WOAH!! thank you its an honor! :D :D :D :D all smiles here now. I be you could kick some ass, so deep down inside you dont know you would get your ass kicked, your just insecure about your martial arts prowess. It happens to all us badased or what brodouch bags would call BAMFs BAD ASS MOTHER FUCKERS. I do see how it could be hard to find friends to talk about porn with but hey thats prolly why your blog is here :D Keep rocking and thanks again.

No problem - I enjoy your blog! I have to ask, do you like Stallone? And if so, how much?

As for the porn talk thing, yeah, that's really why I have this blog, but still - that feeling of when you're with a bunch of horror or action nerds, and you all know exactly what the other is talking about, even if you haven't seen the movie...that's what I miss. And, in fact, it's been a long time since I've found anyone at all who a) I like, and b) knows enough about trash cinema to really have some in depth discussion about it.

Oh, and it's apparently not kosher to start talking about porn angles and adult performers with some guy you work with. I learned that lesson quick.
