Documentary Review: Love in Porn by Kseniya Yorsh

by C.J. Asher

LIP posterThe ability to separate love and sex has been debated over countless years by individuals from many different walks of life. As complicated as this issue still is today, it’s even more difficult for those in the adult film industry, who constantly juggle real-life relationships with spouses, significant others and lovers, while separating the emotional intimacy from their on-camera sex lives. Kseniya Yorsh explores this struggle in detail in her new documentary, Love in Porn.

Love in Porn features interviews with adult film talent, such as Logan Pierce, Dana Vespoli, Carter Cruise and Michael Vegas, as well as adult directors, cinematographers and others. These adult entertainment professionals candidly offer their unique perspectives not only on how they separate their working relationships from their personal ones, but also about the emotional impact that their careers have on those closest to them and the difficulties in having romantic relationships both inside and outside of the industry. The documentary also addresses some of the common misconceptions that people outside of adult film have about the industry, and also gives us a unique glimpse into what really goes on behind-the-scenes during the filming of an adult movie.

As someone who has covered the adult industry, I’ve been an outspoken advocate to the fact that, what goes on in adult film is meant to be a titillating and arousing fantasy for the viewer, the actors, actresses and crews that work in the industry are professionals as well as real people with the same daily struggles and challenges that most of us face, and more. Kseniya Yorsh exemplifies this fact with an unpretentious documentary that presents its subjects as emotional yet strong individuals who face challenges that many of us haven’t even considered or faced in our lives. For anyone, inside the adult industry or not, who has at one point or another asked themselves, “Can we truly separate our emotions from sex?,” Love In Porn shows us that, while our perspectives may be individually unique and different, the answer isn’t as black and white as many would believe it to be.
