Super Sexy Studio’s: This Year’s Top Studios
By: P. Weasels
There's not much to say about studios in general, except that some of them are awesome, and they bring you the kind of porn you like. Here are your five favorite porn studios of the year (it's worth noting that these were your five favorite studios last year too, which is a pretty good indicator that Evil Angel, Elegant Angel, Digital Sin, New Sensations, and Jules Jordan Video are doing something right.
Evil Angel There's just no studio like Evil Angel. Headed up by one of porn's most important pioneers - John Stagliano, aka Buttman and the man who invented gonzo! - Evil Angel has been cranking out quality porn for decades, bringing different viewpoints, disparate kinks, and amazing erotica to the world without fail. There's hardly a genre that Evil Angel hasn't made its own, and the various directors who work under EA's umbrella have carried on in John Stagliano's rich tradition of innovation. Evil Angel has showcased the work of many important directors, from Belladonna's unique fetish visions to Joey Silvera's pioneering work in pegging and transsexual porn, from Dana Vespoli's kinks to Lexington Steele's strong black vision, the European sensibilities of Manuel Ferrara, Nacho Vidal, and Rocco Siffredi to the escapades of porn's premier swinging couples, the LeWoods and Mick Blue and Anikka Albrite, and above all Buttman's own oeuvre, Evil Angel has it all.
Jules Jordan Video Once the enfant terrible of porn, Jules Jordan was Buttman's most successful protege, but he struck out on his own in 2006 and never looked back. Since then, Jules Jordan Video has been one of porn's most successful enterprises. Jules is one of porn's most successful directors and performers, and his pioneering work in HD and anal has been one of the reasons you can't turn around without seeing an incredibly clear view of someone getting fucked in the ass in porn these days. Jules Jordan Video titles always rocket to the top of the charts, and they're always heavily represented at award shows. From fresh-faced Philly porn-store clerk shooting in his off hours to king of the hill Hall-of-Famer - it's the Jules Jordan story!
New Sensations Founded in 1993, New Sensations is one of the handful of companies that dominate the American porn industry. Famous for providing the best content when it comes to couples fare - edgy, complex and involved, with honesty and intimacy in both vignettes and features, New Sensations content focuses on genre porn - gorgeous teens, hotwifing, interracial, family fantasy, cuckolding, BDSM, all-girl loving, sexy adventure, pure romance, and just plain great sex. Fans of good, clean hardcore are sure to find something they like at New Sensations. It's no wonder this studio is one of our most popular sellers.
Digital Sin Founded in 1999, Digital Sin produces content very similar to that of sister company New Sensations - just a little more skewed toward the romantic couples' market. With vignette porn aimed at customers who like a little story with their sex, Digital Sin strives to bring the hardcore to an audience that wants just a little more romance and maybe just a smidge less taboo. Couples all over thank them for it!
Elegant Angel Originally a subsidiary of Evil Angel, Elegant Angel - under the direction of Patrick Collins - split from Stagliano's company in 1996, after having established itself as a co-pioneer of gonzo and one of porn's premier sources for quality anal hardcore. With dozens of movies coming out each year devoted to the fine art of anal sex, Elegant Angel was the go-to studio for down-and-dirty ass fucking, and because the company was also a pioneer in the field of scouting new unknown talent in Eastern Europe, fans were always seeing something new. In 2004, Collins started rebranding Elegant Angel as a producer of niche-themed series, and today the company is one of the leading producers of oral, anal, interracial, and squirting porn, as well as many other fetishes.
