Why the Rise of MILF Porn?

If you are over 25 but under 35, you occupy a weird spot in the American male porn viewing public. You are old enough to remember when finding a Playboy magazine was like Indy finding the Ark of the Covenant, but you're young enough to consider daily viewing of internet porn as normal. You remember when porn had plots that created sexual situations. You understand the importance of just seeing a sex scene on a tube site, and you remember when 30 second videos took 10 minutes to download on your campus' T3 connection. You recall when porn actress genitalia grooming was a mixed bag, but you expect to see waxed now all of the time. What seems to annoy you is the constant MILF themed porn sites or scenes on streaming sites. They do not use MILFs. No one your age wants to see MILFs, and the illusion that they are MILFs is absurd beyond standard porn suspension of disbelief. MILFs have carved out a chunk of the marketed and pushed material not because you want it, but because it reflects your reality. Porn doesn't always reflect what you want, but it might reflect what is around you.

In a prior post on cuckold porn, I mentioned non-utopian and utopian viewers. There are the viewers actively seeking out that specific scenario (utopian) and those oblivious to the set up just looking for the performer (non-utopian). MILFs aren't really a utopian ideal, but in our negative society single moms have been elevated to new heights compared to former ages. Joking with friends, I used to think MILF porn was negotiated by porn actresses so that they could take a few years off and then come back in a whole new category (like the DH for career extension). I spent five years without a home computer, relying on Cinemax for any adult entertainment. When I returned to online porn, I found it flooded with MILF porn (2007). Who wanted this, how were 31 year olds MILFs, why is Julia Ann (nsfw) still in porn, who wants to see moms fucking, and what the hell happened to simple plots? Porn reflects the audience.


 She just got a new outfit from the Jaclyn Smith Collection. She's hungry for you.

One of the most famous pornos of the '70s (and of all time) was "Debbie Does Dallas". Porn in the '70s was declared legal and expanding, but still geared towards men who couldn't get laid. Viewers willing to buy the videos or go to theaters in public on a regular basis were losers in the post-pill/pre-HIV/pre-obesity epidemic Golden Age of Sex. Debbie Does Dallas is about young, nubile girls earning money by banging older men in the hopes that Debbie can get to Texas to try out for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. The sex builds until the big payoff of Debbie, in Dallas Cowboy cheerleader gear, banging the middle aged owner of the sporting goods store. Yes, the loser who couldn't get the cheerleader as a young man, manages to have her approaching him for wild sex. Of course, the film hooked the audience because it reflected their reality of being a schlub with their real desire for the cheerleader type who always rejects them, but maybe, just maybe with enough money, you can have her.

By throwing out the storylines of porn of old, the gonzo style flicks have to do a quick set up with the setting as well as the pairing. The pairing of the performers is the cue for the message to the audience. Non-utopian viewers don't care, and make up a good chunk of viewers. They just want to see a specific performer. The utopian viewers are watching for the subtext as well as the performers. Just like the triumph of the sporting goods store owner banging Debbie the cheerleader in the end, modern consumers are drawn to pairings that speak to them. How many guys do you know who say they 'don't waste time' watching girl-girl scenes? No projection in those scenes. To criticize manosphere commenters again, it's not that the scenes are filmed because viewers want to see representations of their moms being whores, but they are filmed for men who would be playing the role of protagonist in the scene. There are older porn viewers now with greater comfort using the Internet, so a scene with a 40 year old Julia Ann is appealing to your 45 year old uncle or maybe your 50 year old dad who watched her tour US strip clubs as 1/2 of Blondage in the '90s.

 Your dad would hit it.
MILF porn is maybe what some guys want (I realize some women watch MILF porn projecting into the MILF's role). A slice of men like older women. Some men have that Oedipal fear yet excitement of their moms being whores. Considering the times, this would mean young Boomer and older Gen X moms, who had over 40% divorce rates. I'd say that anxious temptation of viewing is a reality for some men. There are the men who watch a 40-something for that 'what a whore' vibe. There are also guys who might have dated a girl who had a hot mom (everyone has once). Interracial MILF porn seems to have female performers who actually could be MILFs due to their age (40+), not a "phony MILF" instance. Next time you're at a Blues or BBQ festival, look around. Middle aged black guys seem to date cast off, middle aged white women with a rough look to them. I'll give those guys credit; those white women are usually thinner than the average white woman you see with a young black guy. Viewers get the 'this can be reality for you' message not from the build up of the story like in Debbie Does Dallas, but in the performer pairing.

It still doesn't quite cover that weird situation of late 20-something porn performers portraying MILFs in scenes. Some of them even joke about it on their twitter or tumblr accounts where they 'play' college girls one day and MILFs the next. This phony MILF syndrome makes perfect sense if you consider the sexual marketplace of today. We like to mock chubby single moms or single moms with high standards still dating fast and furious, but there are a decent number of thin, attractive single moms out there (divorced or never married). It's our society. Manosphere sites like to mock the betas who marry these women and form families inclusive of the bastard child. I wouldn't do it, but many do, and some are successful, positive role models for the formerly fatherless children. Attractive single moms are a reality, and there are plenty of men out there who fantasize about the 28 year old single mom in customer service. I've worked with four women who were these types of MILFs. I'd never set those single moms up with friends for a relationship, but I guarantee that my friends would fuck them. This is the reality of the dating world. On any given friday night, how many single moms rock the nightclubs? In a perfect world, these women never would have had these kids or remained married, and they'd be sexy, single women with higher value. These phony MILF scenes are phony from the standpoint of who the term MILF really was meant for, but no company is going to market porn as "Single Mom Hunters" instead of "MILF Hunters". It's a matter of language to disguise the unpleasantness around us. It's a rather damning indictment of modern society when even the porn industry uses selective language. The sexual marketplace losers that the pairings 'speak to' listen to that siren song that the young, single mom in their sphere of contact is just dying to fuck them.

As I say whenever discussing modern pornography, the videos and scenes reflect the desires and funhouse mirror the reality of the audience. Porn used to be bad or basic stories that created pauses for sexual hijinks. Due to the ease of watching, the audience has expanded a bit. Due to the rising number of unattached men, the audience has changed. Due to changes in the sexual marketplace, the situations and objects of desire have changed. Any idiot can look at all of the scenes involving yoga classes, notice that they are WF-WM performer combos (some WM-AsianW), and connect the dots as to what audience, thoughts and desires are being tapped there. Shucks, I wonder what "Deep Throat" was telling viewers where a gal has her clitoris  located at the back of her throat and can only achieve orgasm when deep throating a man? Workplace themed movies now regularly include scenes with the bitchy or incompetent female boss who bangs the lowly male worker. It's no longer only the horny, cute secretary like porn's days of old. Times change. Porn changes with it. MILF porn, like cuckold porn, does serve that tiny audience of guys with mommy issues or are attracted to older women. If a tube site survey could be performed on all viewers, the vast majority of men watching don't care and nothing registers (non-utopian viewers) or for the majority of other viewers, those young, horny single moms are the gals they are stuck interacting with in the sexual marketplace.

Doing research for the pix, I was saddened to hear of Julia Ann's passing: she now does colored gangbang porn.

Long gone are the days of Lean Blondage.

Ever see what Janine looks like now? blech

Isn't the rise of this type of entertainment caused as a result of the ascendency of the jewish mindset into the common culture?

If you look around throughout the media, film, music, banking and other industries, jews dominate them. This means that jewish values have replaced the dominant Anglo-Saxon memes in both the dominant culture aswell as the extreme or sub-cultures (e.g. porn). If you look at jewish media and culture, the veneration of women and the mother figure dominates. So this could be an explanation as to why this MILF porn is on the rise: because jewish memes are so prevalent in the population that it causes people to think and behave in a jewish manner, rather than an Anglo-Saxon one. If Anglo-Saxons (or any other race for that matter) ended up replacing the jewish top-dogs, then the cultural values, memes, would change again, and you would see something else in the porn industry rather than MILF porn.

@AAB - I never considered the jewish angle, but holy shit, yes, if jews have as much control over porn as they do Hollywood, then what a projection of their inner neurosis.

Rachel set about seducing her way into his affections. She was so successful that the boss eventually married her. From there on in she took full advantage of her newly gained status and power. She enjoyed lavish parties, shopped extravagantly, and became heavily involved in the dealings of her new husband's company. Such was her cunning that she effectively gained control of it. But then she suffered a setback. Her husband perished in a tragic accident; as per his Last Will and Testament, the company was handed over to his son Kenneth. Unlike his father, Kenneth kept a close eye on how it was run. This denied Rachel the free reign that she used to enjoy.
