2007: The Year in Porn

At the end of every year, each of us should ask her or himself: “What porn have I watched? Was it good? Was it weird? Was it funky?” People like me get to answer “yes,” “yes,” and “mas oui,” for better or worse. After viewing maybe 500 porn movies this year, there’s little left in the field of human sexual behavior that I haven’t seen and laughed at. Watching that amount of porn is guaranteed to make you appreciate the finer points of Victorian poetry or the laws of quantum mechanics; that said, a number of titles this year stand out as being among the industry’s most audacious, bizarre, awesome and flat-out interesting, usually all at once.

While the commercial porn industry continues to be dominated by a few big companies, there’s more independent porn being produced on DVD than ever before, and indie porn is where you’ll find some of the weirdest shit on the planet in addition to some very hot titles. To anyone who considers her or himself a cultural libertine, taking a stroll through a truly diverse stack of porn is like a Ballardian trainwreck with cumshots.

Trying to come up with a “year’s best” list for porn is like trying to argue Stravinsky vs. the Stooges—what works for you is almost certainly not going to work for me, my friend; that’s why I’ve focused here not only on the quality porn I’ve seen this year, but also on the wackiest, weirdest and most memorable for whatever reason, whether because its stars are hot or it features a little person dressed as Jesus cussing me out. Don’t say you haven’t been warned.
