talent and versatility in porn

    Just yestarday Stoya tweeted about an awesome project that won’t go through with her involvement precisely because of her involvement with adult entertainment. Honestly, it isn’t any news to me that there is a lot of prejudice against the pornographic industry, but I still couldn’t help on feeling rather angry (I’m not sure that’s the word I’m looking for here – english is my second language, okay? – so I might have to update this post in a short while). I don’t know what the project is about, and If I did it would only make me more sad if it doesn’t go through or, even worse, it does go though without her involvment in it. And for such a ridiculously trivial reason. Yes, that is trivial, for it seems pretty obvious to me that an adult film actress can show her talents in different areas, with different kinds of performances, whichever they’d be. In fact, the first time I ever heard of this girl in particular was when I watched this ___ review on an Xbox “game”. That itself plus a few interviews with her that I looked up on the web really showed her as an intelligent, smart, delightfully funny person – I don’t have to mention how awesomelly beautiful she is, now do I? – exactly the kind of woman I would ask to marry me, if I was ever to marry someone (sorry, Stoya, but I have serious commitment issues). I think it’s absurd to discriminate someone like that while people such as Madonna have been allowed to act in comedy and drama movies. For the arts’ sake she should have never been allowed to sing, anyway.
    A few days ago I was reading an interview with Sasha Grey and she mentioned her work outside the xxx films with performances in a Steven Sodenbergh’s film and in a soon-to-be-released canadian comedy-slash-horror film. In this very same interview she shows that she has a complete understanding of the adult industry itself, and also great argumentary skills when talking about her point of view on the versatility of actresses such as herself. Way before she started acting she already used to watch and analyse the films – the way the actos behave, the filming techniques, the “contact” with the viewer, etc. The important thing is that even as she works in ‘different’ kinds of films she still sees no reason to choose between one style or the other. Neither do I.
