HERE ARE 6 PORN TRENDS WE'LL BE SEEING IN 2018
Post at 19:13 - 22/02/2018

When we reflect on how much porn has changed over the last few decades, we can’t help but wonder where the X-rated industry is headed next...and what better way to find out than by asking people who work with porn for a living?

 

At the Adult Entertainment Expo and the AVN Awards this year, Men’s Health got the inside scoop on what we can expect to see in the wild world of porn in 2018, by talking to some of the biggest names in the industry, including producers, directors, and porn stars. 

And so, here are 6 of the most notable porn trends we'll definitely be seeing throughout the year. 

1. PORN WILL BECOME A LOT MORE CINEMATIC

Since we, as humans, love things that are visually pleasing, and because technology is now super easily accessible, porn is becoming increasingly higher in quality, and apparently, we’ll see a lot of premium “Glamour Porn” in 2018.

“Prettier porn is becoming popular again. This porn has a mainstream Hollywood feel to it. It’s very pretty, very cinematically and visually appealing, but still sex,” porn star Brett Rossitold Men’s Health.

And this rise in premium porn is partly due to the fact that since anyone with internet can open up a porn site and watch whatever they want, companies need to find ways to attract viewers – and they’re doing that by making their porn more aesthetically pleasing.

“20 years ago, you could get away with good porn and lame customer experience,” says Adam Grayson, CFO for the porn company Evil Angel. “[But] we are judged against Netflix in terms of customer experience, not against a crappy porn site.”

2. WE'LL SEE A LOT OF VIRTUAL REALITY PORN

With the constant and swift advances in technology, it’s no surprise that virtual reality porn has been gaining popularity lately, and in 2018, it’ll be better and more immersive than ever before.

According to virtual reality porn companies like Naughty America and Camasutra VR, 4K porn – which is four times the resolution of HD -- might become the new norm fairly soon, along with other fully-immersive X-rated experiences. 

“This is more of a millennial trend in all areas. But it's a continuing trend [in porn] to offer more experiential content,” Grayson explains. 

 

 

3. MORE PORN STARS WILL BECOME ENTREPRENEURS

Instead of just shooting scenes for porn companies, a lot of aspiring porn stars will start producing their own pornos, and will mold their careers the way they want to.

"The biggest trend I’ve seen for myself and other coworkers in this business is being able to be your own producer and director and not actually have to shoot at all for anyone else," says porn star Tasha Reign. 

"There are so many different sites where porn stars can shoot amateur video at home, upload them, and make money. Porn stars become the company. It cuts out the producer and director and allows for something where there is no overhead. You can be hanging out around the house, grab a co-star, shoot a scene from your own home and upload it. People love it. It gives the impression that it's more the real deal."

 

 

4. THERE'S GOING TO BE A LOT OF "THRILLER" AND "ACTION" PORN

Remember that super high-budget Game of Thrones porn parody — Storm of Kings XXX — that had actual fight scenes and a legit story line? Well, get ready to see a lot more of that, because there’s apparently a seriously high demand for action and thriller porn.

"We've seen an increase in ambitious action/thriller movies, to the extent that we actually added that category to the AVN Awards this year," says Sharan Street of AVN Magazine. "Many of this year's big movies explored different genres, such as horror, action movies, and psychological thrillers.

 

5. “FAUXCEST” WILL CONTINUE TO BE ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR PORN GENRES

Hey, some people have some pretty interesting fetishes, but one of the most popular is fake incest porn, a.k.a. "fauxcest," which looks like it’s going to be one of the top porn genres in 2018.

“Family roleplay themes and voyeuristic 'almost caught' scenarios were among the most popular online and within my brands,” says the head of production at Gamma Films Group, Bree Mills.

"People love taboo. People are aroused by things that they 'shouldn't' be aroused by,” Reign explains. “There's a lot of shame and guilt in watching it, but there shouldn't be because it's a fantasy, and you leave it in your bedroom. It's exciting that people are being able to explore themselves a bit more, even if it's just at home through a movie.”

6. WOMEN WILL BE MORE POWERFUL IN THE INDUSTRY

Earlier this month, Pornhub released their annual “Year in Review,” where they revealed that the top trending search throughout 2017 was “Porn for Women,” and according to industry experts, porn will be even more female-driven this year.

And as Jacky St. James won the title of Best Director last year, Street says: "Women continue to make inroads behind the camera.”

“Right now viewers have to go in and look for female-direct porn, because it’s not easy to find,” says Cindy Gallop, founder of the website MakeLoveNotPorn. “I have a number of amazing female friends making great porn, but they're not getting any traffic because no one can find them. I would love to see female-concepted, female-directed porn become a huge trend this year.”
