Problems with Porn: Does This Look Like a Fucking Nurse to You?

Take a look at the following photo.  It’s a screen shot from nurse-themed movie that came across my desk. As such, you’d think proper looking uniforms would be a given.

That said, allow me to ask, “Does this look like a fucking nurse to you?”

nurse.pfft

Properly lacing a PVC corset is an important part of nursing school.

Now, I know what some of you are going to say. “It’s porn. What do you expect?”

I’ll tell you. I expect porn producers to do their best and not shit out a disposable, misleading product.

And you might think that no one cares, but I know some do.  I’m one of them.

Another example is that we have a customer who’s really into themed, costume movies. Anything with nurses, offices girls, etc. he wants. And he doesn’t really want anything else.

I knew this movie was here, and I didn’t even want to recommend it to him. Because even if the other scenes on the disc do feature (really fucking cheap) nurses costumes, how would I feel about if I paid full price for something so remarkably mediocre based on the recommendation of someone who knows better?

So I personally did not recommend it.

Producers might be thinking, “Oh, it’s just a few sales here and there. It’s the big numbers that matter.”

Fuck you.

I’m here to tell you, John Q. Porn-Producer, your big numbers will get a fuck-ton smaller if you don’t give a damn about your product. Reason being, everyone else will stop giving a damn as well.

And before you continue with your bullshit excuses, let me say this.

People in the porn business love to moan about how piracy  has caused our industry’s downturn. And I can’t deny that file sharing of this variety or that is a problem.

But there’s a reason so many people think they deserve porn movies for free. It’s because many products lack value.

There are plenty of notable exceptions to this, of course. I could rattle off a dozen studios and directors that go above and beyond – people who are passionate about what they do. And frankly, 2014 is a good time for quality porn.

After all, lots of barely mediocre to downright awful porn companies fell apart in the late 2000’s and early teens.

But there are still plenty of lingering, lazy fucks producing porn.

Customer beware.

(And yes. I’m writing this as a retailer.)
