Can Porn Stars Really Act? (Video)

You might be reading this and saying “don’t be stupid” while you think back to the last “orgasm” you saw a porn star have on screen. You might be thinking about how the woman moaned as soon as the man touched her, and that in real life it simply isn’t that easy. A lot of the moaning, groaning, and screaming in ecstasy we see on screen is fake.

While the majority of us don’t consider the acting done by porn stars to be all that convincing, there are still people out there who feel that what they see in porn is real. They are confused about why their girlfriend doesn’t orgasm from a few thrusts of the fingers. That’s how it works, right?

Well, no. Needless to say, the acting has fooled some people enough to mislead them about what sex is really like. They feel it should be like porn. That is why the porn star experience is such a popular one. So can porn stars actually act?

Interviewing porn stars

Well, footage from an interview conducted by WoodRocket.com suggests that, actually, certain acting skills are too challenging for them.

The adult website got together sexy female porn stars and their male counterparts for an interview. During the interview, they asked the porn stars if they could test their acting abilities, and so asked for them to cry on camera.

The results, as you can imagine, were interesting.

To be honest, it’s a little cringe-worthy to watch. Some of them do an alright job, managing to at least appear like they are upset.

However, the rest leave a lot to be desired. The majority of the crying attempts involve them laughing and smiling awkwardly, while hiding behind their hands and making sobbing noises.

Some of them don’t even seem to get that far. They simply pull a sad face and then look at the camera as though they have just unearthed a whole world of emotions for us. Not very impressive!

Is acting important to porn?

Okay, so watching that clip might make you cringe, and you might be shocked by the acting level of the porn stars, but is acting really that important to porn?

While I think that, yes, a poorly acted porno can be very off-putting (how many times have you answered the door to the postman saying he has a package for you and been reminded of that terrible video you watched?), it doesn’t have to be the greatest acting in the world.

After all, it is porn. We go there for the sex, to see what new and unusual sex positions they try, and to have a bit of a perve at the hot women and men in the video. If they can at least act out one convincing orgasm, that is good enough for most of us.

What do you think is the most important part of porn? Is it the acting? Is it the hot sex acts they show? Let us know over on the Escort Norway forum, or by leaving a comment in the box below.
