Apart from being one of the most prolific and powerful industries of all time, porn is also quite complex.

There are mixed perspectives about the subject, since people’s experiences are not the same. The following documentaries are the best way you can learn what lies behind this topic, since they make people realize porn is much more than sex and kinky scenes:

porn documentaries prince of pleasure

During the last decade, the porn industry has gone through many changes. As a consequence, porn scenes have become more intense and violent. This documentary examines that dark side of porn and its consumers, who have acquired a taste for extreme and degrading content. It also delves into the potential harm suffered by people who agree to work in these kinds of movies.

Aroused (2013) by Deborah Anderson

porn documentaries aroused

Despite its poor quality, this documentary is worth mentioning due to the way it creates the illusion of a sophisticated porn industry that only gives great pleasure to the women involved. The choice of actresses makes it impossible to address this topic objectively. Thus, this documentary serves as an example of those porn documentaries that do not necessarily reflect reality.

Hot Girls Wanted (2015) by Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus

Although porn actresses were expected to be over 21 in the past, nowadays the demand for underage actress (around the ages of 18 and 19) has increased heavily. This documentary delves into the lives of those girls who decide to get involved in the porn business and the different outcomes they get. They are either successful and become the audience’s favorite, are soon forgotten, or get fed up and find themselves having sex in exchange for money. This work does not condemn pornography per se, but some of the reasons why people consume it.

Inside Deep Throat (2005) by Sascha Bailey and Randy Barbato

Deep Throat is one of the most famous films of all time. Apart from describing what it was like to shoot the movie before the industry’s impressive growth in the United States, this documentary also shows why it became a turning point and a key element for the development of this genre. It features many interviews with collectors, gangsters, and all kinds of individuals interested in these movies. The social radical change that the movie brought about has turned it into a cult film.

Kink (2013) by Christina Voros

James Franco himself was the producer of this documentary that takes a plunge inside one of the most prolific producers of BDSM porn: the website kink.com. Despite the degrading and intense scenes they shoot, the world behind the scenes couldn’t be friendlier than any movie set. They clearly draw the line between fantasy and reality to explain that what the screen shows isn’t necessarily true.



As it was mentioned earlier, porn isn’t just sex. There are many elements involved in the shooting of a single movie. Although the audience usually overlooks or ignores these factors, it’s important to pay closer attention to them.
