Yeah, so, I watch Pornography every once in a while...

And as I was going through my new Torrentbytes torrents I noticed this new XXX video called Thinking XXX. It was a documentary made by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders about his adventures with an antique view camera and how he went from photographing artists, to moviestars, to presidents, and how he wanted to photograph porno stars.

It's pretty interesting hearing the stories of the actors he photographs, and he photographs any genre basically (gay actors, straight actors). There's nudity in it, but no hardcore, which makes the film watchable.

They have all the big names as well: Jenna Jameson, Briana Banks, Christy Canyon, Tera Patrick, Tawny Roberts, Lexington Steele, Ron Jeremy, Seymore Butts, Peter North... and some others that I haven't seen.

All in all it was an interesting watch, from listening to Briana Banks' story about how she started and about this black guy who said he wanted to be big in Hollywood, however because of politics he's not welcome.

They also have these other contributors (writers, journalists, directors) who comment on pornography as well that complement the actors' own stories. Although I sometimes disagreed with what the panel was saying, it did accentuate what I think the filmmaker wanted to do... just to be a link whore, here's the soundtrack and the HBO link
