By going through all the data made available on the Internet Adult Film Database, Jon Millward released his analysis titled Deep Inside: A Study of 10,000 Porn Stars and Their Careers, a massive infographic that looks at "the truth about what the average performer looks like, what they do on film, and how their role has evolved over the last forty years."
Jon is also a very funny man, as the introduction to his report shows below:
Without any mental deliberation, picture the average female porn star. Just let her spring into your minds eye looking however she looks. Can you see her?
I had bumped into a friend who Id not seen in a while and this was the first question I asked him. He didnt realise at the time that Id been in self-imposed smutty exile for an untold number of weeks, working on the largest study of porn stars ever undertaken, and now I was out and eager to spread the news.
Erm, yeah, I suppose, he said.
What does she look like? I asked, struggling to hide my smile.
When he replied by saying a blonde with big boobs, I must admit I relished the opportunity to lean in, let the grin spread across my tired face, and say Thats what everyone says. And in fact, its wrong.
Oh, he said, after I explained how I knew what the average porn star actually looks like, as well as what her name probably is, how many films shes most likely done and the probability of her having a tattoo or body piercing.
So youve spent all this time watching hundreds of porn movies?
No, I said. Ive spent all this time analysing the demographic profiles and filmographies of ten thousand adult performers. There is a difference.
I see, he then said. And how, dare I ask, does one go about doing that?
