Is It Sweeps? (Part II)

Miami's ABC affiliate (WPLG) in an undercover operation coincidentally timed with ratings sweeps finds the shocking truth about porn - it's all acting!

The Local 10 Problem Solvers discovered hardcore porn being shot, produced and distributed right here in South Florida. But the setting isn't a darkened movie set, it's a van that could be driving right next to you.

It's sex on the move and it has a worldwide following. Local 10's Matt Lorch went undercover to find out how this operation works. The online video shows two men in a minibus rolling around South Florida hunting for young women. The video shows the bus picking up women on the side of the road and dumping them when the sex is finished.

Local 10 producer Michaela Mitzel said, "The whole scenario is staged. It's all acting, contrary to what you and I believe."

Porn, fake???

Shocking!

You know, I once heard from a friend that the girls in porn films might actually be faking their orgasms, too.

Maybe a television reporter in South Florida could straighten out this great mystery as well...

This is when I put my hands over my face and mumble "I'm so glad I'm out of local news... I'm so glad that I'm out of local news..."

I actually once sprained a facial muscle from raising my eyebrow too high at something that was on the ten for sweeps. Spent the weekend with an ice pack over my face in irony-free isolation.

Is nothing sacred? Whats next? Are they going to tell me that the letters to penthouse forum are also fake?

Will this nightmare never end?

This is too much - now I bet they will do an expose on Professional Wrestling and say its all acting and fake too.

I stumbled on one of those, and on seeing how it ended -- with the "mark" being dumped and given almost none of the huge amount of money promised, my first reaction was that it was faked.

I just couldn't imagine someone who was actually duped into doing ... that ... in front of a video camera, being reticent about making a huge public stink over the swindle. It could be their ticket to a guest stint on "Jerry Springer."

You might wonder why I watched it all the way through.

I'm still wondering. Boredom, maybe?

in all fairness...

the kind of movie they're talking about is the pseudo-gonzo video, like ones you can see at BangBoat or MILF Seekers. they get unknown pornstars or amateurs (basically, people who won't be recognized as pornstars, and are totally believable as just the jane-on-the-street girl), and the only acting they have to do is act like it's their first time or whatever.

oh yeah, just like the ones McGehee described...

This is outrageous! Next thing you know, Local 10 will report that nurses don't always seduce patients in the hospital, pizza delivery boys are routinely invited to participate in orgies, and handymen can't bank on showing up and fixing more than the lonely housewife's plumbing leak.

This is outrageous! Next thing you know, Local 10 will report that nurses and candy-stripers don't always provide extra service during hospital sponge-baths, pizza delivery boys aren't routinely invited to participate in orgies, and plumbers can no longer count on fixing more than the lonely housewife's plumbing leak during house calls.

Henry:

Its kinda funny, the "Ox" they are talking about started as Bangbus back when a few of their "promo" videos were put on Consumption Junction. Now they probably got bought out by the "ox" company (with the same individual camera people)

As a former "adult film" (ahem) camera operator, I can tell you that not all of it is fake.

We once had a 'gentleman' who wasted over $2000 in production costs be he got -what is the word- stage fright. It was his first time out and he... well... he just didn't. ...And that part is real hard to fake. (no pun intended)

He tried for months to get us to give him a second shot. After I started answering the phone "Hello Woody" every time he called, he got the idea.

A semi amusing story from my former life.

Bangbus. They're all over usenet. The guy that drives it is some ugly bastard. In fact, I think his name is ugly. I know of several people here, on the cusp of the bible belt, that make pron and distribute it over the internet. Not that I approve of that kind of thing.
