Deep Inside – A Study of 10,000 Porn Stars:

“Without any mental deliberation, picture the average female porn star. Just let her spring into your mind’s eye looking however she looks. Can you see her?” A blonde with big boobs? “That’s what everyone says. And in fact, it’s wrong.”

For the first time, a massive data set of 10,000 porn stars has been extracted from the world’s largest database of adult films and performers and analysed providing some answers to which stereotypes about porn stars are true and which are bogus.

The average female porn star weighs forty-eight pounds less than the average American woman and the average male weighs twenty-seven pounds less than the average man.

The most common cup size for a porn star isn’t double-D, D, or even C – it’s thirty-four B. The most common set of measurements is 34-24-34.

Ninety percent of legal American porn is produced in California’s San Fernando Valley.

The most common female sex roles for women in porn film titles are: teen, “MILF”, wife (other peoples’), cheerleader, nurse.

43% of porn stars have a body piercing (13% more than average) and 45.5% have at least one piece of body art (9.5% more than average).

The most common first name for a female porn star is Nikki. For men it’s David. The most common last name for both genders is the same: Lee.

What Your Favorite Porn Says About You:

“Porn is a window into the deepest levels of your psyche. From it you can discover your deepest desires, where they come from and what they mean. The next time you find yourself enjoying your favorite porn scene, take a moment to think about the feelings that got you off and the possible history behind them.”

Women Making Pornography:

“[P]orn is not inherently bad; there has just been a lot of badly made porn. Postmodern sex-positive performance artist (and former ‘golden age’ porn star) Annie Sprinkle is known for having said that ‘the answer to bad porn isn’t no porn, it’s more porn’… not referring to big production ‘high gloss,’ or ‘softcore,’ or ‘couples’ porn. Or the mainstream porn industry’s so-called lines of ‘women friendly’ porn that do nothing more than gloss up the picture and soften the plot.

…authentic porn made by women who show a sincere commitment to radically change porn, featuring female and male sexuality with respect and realism. Where porn becomes a vehicle for women to explore their own sexuality and define it for themselves. A new language to talk about sex. A radically progressive and liberating gender democratic discourse with which to approach heterosexuality… New porn by women shines the light on how we can all break free from confining gender roles and erotic conventions, attaining fluidity, democracy, and abundant space and possibilities in the ways we encounter our sexual partners.”
