Jenna Jameson is in talks to appear on Broadway in a show called “Rock of Ages” while Sasha Grey continues to move deeper into the mainstream with her film and television roles. Earlier this year, Laurence Fishburne’s daughter Montana decided to star in her own professionally produced sex tape as a way to build a mainstream acting career. And amateurs everywhere are using Porn 2.0 websites to make their personal sex lives available for all the world to see.
Are we in the final days of pornographic movies being considered at all taboo?
Even ten years ago, it was a far fetched and unrealistic idea that a major porn star such as Jameson or Grey could crossover and appear in very mainstream roles. And a leaked sex tape was generally considered to be the kiss of death for an aspiring actress; some of whom were reluctant to even appear topless. Today, however, the public does not seem to care much at all that a porn star now appears on television at night (as Grey did on HBO’s Entourage earlier this year), or that a mainstream actress has a sex tape coming out.
Jenna Jameson on Broadway, however, is something that would have seemed even more unexpected, but according to several reports, there is an excellent chance of it happening.
It seems society has fully accepted, if not fully embraced, the fact that porn stars are not only people too, but people who want to leverage their fame and good looks for a shot at being a star outside of the porn industry.
For their part, amateurs are increasingly getting into the act as a plethora of websites now cater to those wishing to share their sexual exploits with the world.
Could all of this, ironically, be the end of the porn industry as we know it? If porn has lost most of its taboo and forbidden ‘feel’, does it still hold the allure for people? Even more so, are people becoming jaded to watching professional porn actors and actresses when the thrill of watching your next door neighbor, perhaps, on a web site is just as much, or even more, fun?
The demand for watching adult movies and participating in adult activities will never go away, but industry itself, much as the music industry has, is clearly changing.
Jenna Jameson’s possible foray onto Broadway could very likely be the final porn to mainstream frontier.
