For the movie fans we have 10,000 DVD titles for sale covering the widest range of tastes. We have a constantly changing inventory to ensure we have the best and newest.
We all know that pornography is a huge part of the adult novelty business. And business is good! So here’s a rundown to help you understand the sections and find the right movie for you.
Couple’s movies are the DVDs we sell the most of due to our large female customer base. There are many points that classify certain porn as female friendly couple’s movies. The sex is considered softcore* compared to our other hardcore* DVD options. They tend to have more emotional touching/kissing, storyline, attractive men and more natural women. Even the cinematic style is different. The camera angles serve to make the viewer feel like they’re watching a ‘legitimate’ production rather than a ‘smut film’. You’ll find wide angled, full body shots and close ups on faces as opposed to P.O.V* or money shots*.
Companies to look for: Wicked Pictures, Playgirl (a division of Wicked), Candida Royalle, Adam & Eve, Vivid Entertainment, Digital Playground, Private, Sweet Sinner, New Sensations Romance, Andrew Blake and Ninn Worx.
Parody porn is a big up and comer in the adult entertainment industry at the moment. You’ll always find niche markets in this industry and parodies are where it’s at right now. Parodies play into fantasy. It places the viewer in a scenario that they have memories associated with. Be it a young sexual fascination with Wonder Woman, the lust to see the X-Files really as the XXX-Files, or for just a good laugh at a party. Because they’re trying to fulfill an expectation/fantasy and there’s a huge window for error, the production values are higher than your run of the mill porno. The acting tends to a better quality as well. When you have a grown man tell you he watched the Glee XXX and fast-forwarded through the sex scenes to get to the singing, you know an extreme effort was made.
Companies to look for: Hustler Video, LFP Inc (Larry Flint Productions, a division of Hustler Video), Vivid Entertainment, Extreme Comixxx, and New Sensations.
This section is all about knowing what you like. The movies here are focused on certain performers. They’re generally compilations, with the most popular scenes from the leading lady’s past videos. Sometimes you’ll get lucky and find a DVD set with two (2) full-length films featuring your favorite star.
Companies to look for: Every company and their Mum will release whatever footage they have as a compilation if the talent becomes popular. It’s the pornstar people are looking for in this case, not production value.
Instructional videos are a great find for curious type. The two types we carry are marketed at two very different age rages of customers. The Vivid Ed. Videos are better suited for the younger generation. Age range 18-40. The videos go into great detail concerning lube, hygiene, communication and technique. They favor a classroom/group style of filming, sprinkled with humour. With guest instructors like Tristan Tarimino and Penny Flame, you know you’re getting the best advice. The Alexander Institute DVDs on the other hand are dryer and take a more clinical approach to instruction. The actors in the films are older aged couples in real life. Target market for Alexander Institute DVDs is 40+
