Back in the '70s, porn had a plot

I'm a different type of porn watcher than most.

I like a bit of a plot to go along with all the sucking, licking and fucking. Today's porn is filled with bad acting and no plot.

My best friend, X, always asks me why do I even watch porn if I want to see real acting?

He says, "It's not Brad Pitt on the screen."

But thanks to X being a huge movie buff and historian, he turned me on to a classic porn movie, The Devil In Miss Jones.

This 1973 movie looks like an art movie for the first 15 to 20 minutes. The plot of it is this: Justine Jones is a lonely virgin who just can't get off or get anything she wants out of life. So, she kills herself. (The fact that she uses a razor blade to kill herself but couldn't shave down there was weird but as X said, no one shaved their pubic hairs in the '70s.)

When Miss Jones goes to the great beyond, she's told that she can't get into heaven because she killed herself and that's the one thing she can't be forgiven for. Sitting there with the gatekeeper, she said if she had the chance to go back, she'd be "consumed, engulfed by lust."

"That is one of the seven deadly sins, isn't it?" she asks.

And this is when the porn comes in. It's hardcore, but in a 1970s way. I will say this, Miss Jones likes to taste herself!

The original movie has been remastered and re-released on DVD, but it is not cheap! I went to a few stores in Charlotte and that damned DVD was nearly $70. It's a good movie and all, but it is a recession out there.

It is available online to rent. And the rental is cheaper than going to the movies this weekend.
