Soft-core Porn Is The New Hardcore Porn

Thought the porn industry was suffering because of the recession? Think again. While the hardcore end of the adult movie business has taken a hit, the soft-core portion is doing quite well, thank you very much. Primarily available on cable TV networks like Cinemax, HBO, and Showtime, the medium in which people hump each other romantically without nary a pop shot in sight is staging a comeback. According to one of the top producers of “soft erotics,” L.A.-based MRG’s Marc Greenberg, soft-core “just keeps going, like a cockroach — you can’t kill it.” What is soft-core porn, you ask? Well, it’s defined in large part but what it isn’t. There’s no full-frontal male nudity or “extended close-up shots of female private parts.” Nowadays, “Co-Ed Confidential,” “Beverly Hills Bordello,” and “Zane’s Sex Chronicles” have a steady viewership of folks looking for something other than hardcore porn’s “wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am” aesthetic. The genre is particularly popular among women, who are finding explicit adult movies a bit much. For some, simulated sex is better than the real thing. [L.A. Times]
