Excerpt from The Smart Girl's Guide to Porn
The need to focus on sex, combined with a small budget and minimal resources, often compromises vital aspects of the video's quality. Poor sound quality and looped scenes are an unfortunate result. Sound issues can mean hearing the sounds of the production crew, muffled or inaudible dialogue, or annoying background music—sometimes, lamely enough, just music playing in the room where the actors are having sex. A huge complaint from viewers is having to sit through scenes that have been cut (often poorly) with looped film, meaning the action (such as a close-up of a blow job) is edited in repetition to make the scene seem longer. Another annoying corner-cutter found on all-sex videos is the technique of intermingling higher-quality scenes with badly filmed, lackluster scenes, for filler. As if we wouldn't notice.
