Don't look now, but sex itself is still pretty much the same ol' in-and-out that it's been for 2 million+ years - but it's still quite popular!
Also, there is some validity to your overstatement, but it ignores the couple-few hundred scenes they've produced that are classics for the ages.
Isn't that the nature of creative endeavors through the ages, that there's always a good amount of dross for the amount of pure gold that comes out of their mines?
Yes, Aristide, I guess you are right. I also suspect that our mood also has a lot to do, sometimes I bump on a scene that it drove crazy 10 or 15 years ago, and then I watch it again now and to even my own surprise I dont like it, ....and the scene is the same but we are different or feeling different.The human brain is a tricky device, indeed.And I also enjoyed a lot many many scenes from GFF along the years.....but 2500 scenes.....for heaven sake. lol
At the risk of repeating myself, I can't chase from my mind the occasional knock-your-sox-off gems like these that I've written about recently:
Don't specific examples like these "falsify the hypothesis" that we've entered a new dark age? Haven't there always been more hits than misses - even when everyone is trying to do it right? If there are more "misses" now might that just mean there is "more" of everything now?
OK, the proportion of gems to dross may be lower, but if gems are still coming out of the mine in sufficient quantities isn't that what matters?
Runaway points to his oldies collection and fair enough, but I seem to keep finding newbies worthy of adding to my oldies collection. That's worth something.
But Sir, 99%, (or more) of the g/g scenes of 18 years ago, rarely offered the intense kind of heat that's to be found in much more recent videos like the DVDs of "We Live Together" volumes 27, 28, 29, 34, 36, 41, and 43.Back in 2000, most women in American made g/g scenes were still indicating by their behavior, in their crappy scenes, that they were simply repulsed by engaging in activity such as intense French kissing with another woman, and seemed like they could only force themselves to do it, for brief amounts of time.But in recent years, women such as Riley Reid and Dani Daniels have appeared to deeply enjoy the most intimate things that women can possibly do with each other.Women such as those 2 ladies, really seem like they can hardly get enough of continually sucking on each other's tongues, as well as, licking each other's assholes. And my best friend, sure agrees with me, that those 2 particular acts between pretty women, sure make g/g scenes as hot and erotic as they can get!BTW, of the 7 or 8 GFF productions that are among my 300+ g/g DVDs & Blu-rays, only 1 is a disc that I consider to be a turn-on. And that's only because of 1 scene on "Me And My Girlfriend: Episode 10", which occurs between the lovely women of that DVD's cover, Kenna James and Bree Daniels, who play former college roommates who are reunited. Although that scene never gets as explicit as scenes in the "We Live Together" series from Reality Kings, the gorgeous sight of the beautiful Kenna lying on her back as the very pretty Bree licks Kenna's clit, is just amazingly hot, IMO. Because both of the lovely women are fully included in the camera's frame, and seeing Kenna's pretty legs stretched out, as Bree's lovely tongue licks her blonde girlfriend's clit, is just super hot to me!!

Right, but we're not talking compared to 2000 - "Cockless" numbers with Cherry Rain were the best thing going at that time, which (the wonderful Cherry aside) tells you how bad it was.
No, we're talking about the g/g revolution that was in full force in 2005 after arriving not long before that. It was Viv, Abby and GFF then, soon to be joined by GFF alums Katherine Anelle and Nica Noelle with their own brands. And our friend Omar with Bellezza. Followed somewhat later by many online producers that appear to produce some winners.
In the current decade we probably started getting a lower proportion of nuggets among more dross. Revolutions don't last forever; if successful they get institutionalized.
And Anon's ranting on storylines aside, good lesbian sex is still the rule in the high quality g/g porn we talk about here. Sex the likes of which those of us around in 2000 and earlier only dreamed of.
And there is always the jadedness factor to consider too. (Except moi of course. Naturally. )
My only challenge to the Dark Age narrative is that there are still enough nuggets to keep me panning for gold, even if I process a lot of dross. The processing itself is not unpleasant.
I don't know if there are fewer nuggets or just more scenes overall with a lower proportion of nuggets. Maybe some of each.
I don't expect to find a gem on every dvd. If I find four or five a year worth adding to my permanent collection that's a good year, but I don't recall it was never much more than that in the past. I'm talking scenes so good I had to own them. (They include two with Cherry Rain. Mainly Cockless 7, if you must know. )
