Pornographic films, websites and magazines all plough the same furrow – the repetition of the same act, in all its variations. Where they differ is their opening sequencem the patently fake and false scenarios, which are an afterthought to the main event. The latest issue of Useful Photography celebrates these opening scenes, often cliche, somtimes bizarrely inventive, but always supremely fake.
Taken out of context, (without the pornographic scenes that follow) they tell a different story. A story of amateur acting, and showcasing the talents of actors not usually noted for their acting.
