New Online Sex Sites Strive for Realism

A lot of people, it seems, are tired of "phony sex." Conventional porn features a lot of fakery: fake boobs, fake acting, fake orgasms, etc. Apparently, there is a lurking market out there for sex realism:
At first glance, abbywinters.com (NSFW) might look like just another "barely legal" porn site, and Kink.com (NSFW) like yet another fetish studio.

Websites in Kink's network explore themes ranging from dominance and submission (NSFW) to sex machines (NSFW), while Australian "amateurs" site abbywinters showcases the first blush of young womanhood in all its natural beauty -- no makeup, no boob jobs and no men....Abbywinters offers the one-on-one feel of a cam site, the production values of a high-definition digital studio and the genuine sexual energy of good amateur video. While not accepting user-generated content, the team encourages input from site visitors. Fans can post a suggestion in the forums and find themselves discussing it with a director within hours. The shoot might even begin the next day.

Staffers develop a scenario for each shoot, but let the sexual energy build organically. The performers decide what to do and when to do it. It's not uncommon for abbywinters girls to go for an hour or two, and for the entire thing -- bonked heads, arousal ebbs and flows, hiccups and all -- to end up on a DVD....

I've described the modern porn consumer as "savvy" and "sophisticated," but I could just as accurately have said "jaded" and "unimpressed." Kink and abbywinters succeed in this environment because they recognize that they must provide more than pornographic pictures to get our interest, much less keep it. By treating customers as collaborators, they manage to create an experience and make the fantasy real -- and they do that by bringing authentic sex to the virtual realm of porn.

So they keep the farts and everything? Oh, I forgot--no online smell interfaces yet. Still, striving for reality has to be an improvement on the phoniness of most porn. Parenthetically, if children are going to be introduced to sex on the internet--inadvertently, while researching school assignments and such--isn't it better for them to see the real thing, rather than staged and faked? I think so.
