Susannah Breslin Critiques Porn Set


Curbed L.A. flags an amusing Boing Boing piece by blogger Susannah Breslin, reporting on the aesthetics of the Valley porn set. She'd spent both her birthday and Passover last April on the Canoga Park set of a Tori Black shoot which, the director assured Breslin, that "if you want to have sex with Tori Black and don't have chloroform, this is your next best option." Be that as it may, the set was a thrown-together three-wall construction, and not one of those rented-out monster homes in Calabasas or up in the Malibu mountains.

Breslin gives us a cursory rundown on the filmed action, but spares us the details of what's been described many times before, between here and Parade. Instead, she's bugged by the decor.

"That day's scene," Breslin writes, "would take place on one of the ugliest adult movie sets that I have ever seen: pea soup-colored walls, a diarrhea-colored leather sofa, a faux wood floor. All the flowers were fake."

Curbed L.A. introduced the piece by asking the eternal question, "why

is porn stuck in the 70s?" -- knowing full well that porn, like pop

music and hair maintenance, always defaults to that period of our

basest instincts.
