[potentially NSFW] Are we about to have a porn shortage (like we did toilet paper)?

Asked by elbanditoroso (28020points) 1 month ago

I remember reading somewhere that making adult films is a pretty quick process – a week or two from the idea to the finished product, with only a couple of days of actual filming.

If that’s the case – people have been quarantined for several weeks now – I doubt that actors, directors, producers, and other processing personnel have been actively shooting films since COVID started.

Will the world be running out of fresh pornography?

Will people make their own?

There are probably centuries worth of porn out in the wild.
So, no.

elbanditoroso is why there is a toilet paper shortage!

@johnpowell
He probably has a socks shortage.
Or he makes crunching sounds every time he takes a step.

Six feet apart, not face touching still leaves plenty to work with.

Or they will all switch to porn involving leather suits and gas-masks.

I read somewhere in the last week or so that the membership to PornHub has tripled since the virus hit the US. Not sure that it’s true, but it does seem logical!!!

@LadyMarissa It’s because they were offering a free week I think

Believe it or not porn is surging and they are making COVID porn with masks, gloves, etc… Yeah I read a news article two weeks ago about it.

There are millions of videos on porn sites, and most of them homemade, so…

@Are_You The psychology of people during the pandemic is utterly fascinating. Porn is how some self-medicate.
