Hi everybody! I´m gonna talk about what is known as “altporn”. Many have asked “and what is alt-porn about of?” So ok, first of all the term wasn´t set by me, and probably each producer of the aforementioned style conceive their own ideo of this concept and meaning about it, but there are some common factors which define it and a common denominator above all: To break some rules and stereotypes of conventional porn.
Some performers have had problems when recording a shoot because their bodies show one or various tattoos, being that producers and photographers have rejected to work with them directly. And that happened not so much ago, and hasn´t ocurred far away; when I began in porn (2006) I encountered plenty of these cases and lived it in my own flesh… although I don´t wear a lot of tattoos!
Even somebody told me: “Don’t get more tattoos, you are restricting your work”. In that case call somebody which isn´t wearing tattoos!! In my opinion a real good casting has to be done by picking the girls that match with the character!
Nowadays (and forced in many cases), things are changing due to the tattoos increasing popularization, but in the beginning of the Altporn, this was a distinctive character.
Who wouldn´t like to shoot with this youthfully babes, as example?
That´s what a conventional producer would say:
“No! you cannot make porn, you are over tattooed and pierced!”
Let´s say it´s passing from the American porn stereotype with explosive blondies to stare at many other possibilities. The Porn industry was becoming in a so separate, far from reality world.Many people likes it that way, and its completely respectful, but in the other hand it ´s logic fresh ideas began to flow and some barriers were teared down, and so that the altporn is an alternative for everybody.
When I arrange myself to enjoy some porn scene, I like that the characters involved in it enjoy sex and make me accomplice and part of these moments as a spectator. Unfortunately, some productions don´t achieve this proposal. In many cases certain expressions, attitudes in front of the camera kill every magic and this appetite of masturbation vanishes instantly. Some of who not know my labor in depth as an altporn auteur think that I do some kind of feminist porn, that is on everyone’s lips at present.
Yes, that’s right! Altporn and feminist porn moves in the same wave!
This doesn´t have to be a reason for decreasing the intensity of a shoot. The Altporn may contain hard sex, really hard, if this way is what the performers really want to. I always ask to the performers the active roles what they would like to do before start shooting and I also put a message about this fact at the beginning of each of my scenes
I let them fucking at ease, that they masturbate or fuck as they are used to do it in their privacy and overall they get reaching to orgasm during the shooting, but without forcing anything.
All of what I´ve gone telling about this genre is merely a personal view and experience that not applies strictly, as you can imagine. Each director puts in his personal mark and offers us a more wide scape that here posted. Irina, as auteur who wants to show you a more next to reality (boys and girls lead the shoot having sex which more likes them personally), with some cinematographic touches, a natural lighting and catching in each moment the sensuality which models give off… with the goal of making the viewer accomplice in the scene, that the camera be into their eyes moving by the skin and can get lost that intimate moments.
Other Altporn auteurs specialize more in the aesthetic content, keeping a particular line regarding the shoots. We can watch online gothic porn webs or cyberporn, with a rocker sense and lots of tattoos. While others look for a full clear image, with zero artificiality, without operated breasts and using actresses that in many aspects could be runway models; Nerd Porn… yes, there is some alt-porn for geeks or gamers. Blue Blood, Burning Angel, X-art, Vivid Alt are other webs in which you can find this kind of contents.
In short, this is not porn specifically for women, but I thinks is a porn which most of women will enjoy for being closer to sexual reality which we live today. Here you have another key to define Altporn or at least how I conceive it as auteur. The way I record sex is another important part in my job and which defines my own style.
For ending, I hope this explanation for the unknowing of Altporn be useful and had more info as for those who didn´t know about my labor. A lot of people says tells that every kind of situations has been recorded in porn, that everything is invented, but referring to the way of showing sex to people I believe many creative content can be done yet !!
