Commentary tracks on porn DVDs

This just in: A friend of mine on the echo BBS recently got this porn DVD, and discovered that porn DVDs now include commentary tracks. For her latest opus, Briana Loves Jenna, Jenna Jameson and the director chat about everything from camera angles and body parts to special effects, industry gossip, and the importance of custom-made strap-ons. See, apparently, the harness straps on most off-the-shelf strap-ons tend to break under repeated use and … well, hell, you’ll just have to rent it yourself to find out.

One can only wonder where this trend will lead. The mind boggles. “Director’s Cuts” of major porn movies? “The studio totally ruined my narrative. This version restores crucial chopped scenes.”
