The Pirates ones? Link maybe :-)?

I think of grungy as icky so I'd agree on that basis, laugh :-p. I also don't like 'just sex'. I want a story line behind it all. That being said, I find that most of the story lines feel phony; I just can't get into them. Ok, here's going out on a limb and saying specific site material that I've liked; -some- of College F*ck fest. -Some- of Bang Bros stuff.. some of it is really.. bad.. I remember reading a critique about their 'bang bus', which despite what they made it look like, was apparently all paid female performers; there is a twist in it though. But a lot of it atleast seems -real-, as opposed to 'ok, this is what you're going to say and then you have sex' type thing.. and everyone just kind of mouthing off their lines and you can almost feel the 'when is this going to be over so i can get my cash' type thing. I think the best stuff is some of the amateurish web cam stuff. Unfortunately, it's hard to find what I think of as the really good stuff.

Bang Bros is the only company I'm even really aware of; although maybe College F*** Fest is a company as well? It's not something I've really thought of too much, but I'm certainly interested in learning more.

I agree although... atleast in the case of Ron Jeremy.. I read an article on him; a reporter basically followed him about and reported on what he said. I felt he was a man who had a kind heart but he had a really hard time focusing on his own life.. and even one of his girlfriends (I seem to think that he had 2 at the time) seemed to be with him in part just to use him as a connection to get into the porn business; really seemed kind of sad :-/. The other girlfriend seemed to be better though. I wish I could remember where I read this so I could check whether this was how it was or whether my imagination has added details that were never there to begin with -.-. I also remember an article on porn from the New Yorker titled "The Money Shot" (available online for a fee here: http://www.newyorker.com/archive/199...ARDS_000372412), that painted a rather sad picture of the role of most male performers in conventional porn.

Cool. The names that I remember best are Ron Jeremy, the wife of the french president, Carla Bruni, who didn't do much more then some naked pictures, but memorable because she is now, ofcourse, wife of the french president. And Sasha Grey, who was just 18 when she started and was involved in something of a firestorm of controversy because of it. In terms of her porn stuff, she seems to go for harder stuff then I'm comfortable with, but I definitely think she's beautiful. She actually did a movie called "The Girlfriend Experience", where she plays an escort who acts out intimate relationships with her clients while she also has a real boyfriend.

A movie that has a sex scene done under covers = not porn because it isn't explicitly shown to be happening, it is implied by their movements/other behaviors.
Ok. I think that's the legal definition of it? For me.. I'm not sure if I really want to nail it down.. I think I may definite it differently depending on who I'm speaking with, laugh :-)
