Sex in Pornography

I have long had a very low opinion of pornography depicting explicit sex, and a much more positive opinion of softcore. It has always seemed to me that hardcore sites never match the quality of most softcore sites. While there is a massive amount of excellent tasteful soft-core erotic photography available from famous photographers such as Petter Hegre and Grigori Galitsin, you would be hard-pressed to find hardcore porn of similar quality. I can think of only one or two minor exceptions to the rule that hardcore porn is produced by unskilled photographers/videographers and very unconvincing models.

Why is this? I think there are a few reasons. First of all, it has long been accepted for skilled photographers to work with nudes, but it still seems to be taboo for any famous photographer to portray explicit sex. Secondly, I think sex is much more difficult to portray convincingly and artistically than the beauty of the female body on its own. Perhaps this difficulty arises from the complexity of sex. It is not beautiful in itself- only in certain contexts and situations, which are ignored completely in hardcore porn. And all of this might lead one to feel that sex, at least on the internet, is not a beautiful thing, but a dirty shameful act. Yet it is not, and it is extremely unfortunate that internet pornography has made it seem that it is.

Thankfully, Abby Winters has once again provided the exception, producing images and video of quite explicit activity that is tasteful, honest, and never digusting. The vast majority of their couples are girl-girl, but they have been shooting some girl-boy stuff as well, which I will post in the near future. Here are three sample girl-girl galleries from Abby Winters:
