Men’s Health magazine writer Zachary Zane found out “how ridiculous and fantastical porn truly is” when he spent a day on a porn set with Jane Wilde for a revealing new article, ‘I Went to a Porn Set to Learn What Happens Behind the Scenes’.
“I’m fully aware that porn isn’t an accurate reflection of real sex…but I was curious to learn more about the ‘movie magic’ that happens on set,” writes Zane. “Even though I’m a sex columnist, I sometimes worry that the sex I’m having isn’t on par with what I see in porn… it’s difficult not to compare ourselves to the adult performers we see on our screens.”
Wilde, shooting with co-stars Haley Reed and Sophia Grace for the Evil Angel feature film Frisky Anal Nymphos #02, schooled Zane in the realities of her day job – which included prepping for an anal scene (“I stop eating around eight to twelve hours before I clean out”), health concerns (“We try not to get the sugar candy stuff around the vagina area”) and introducing the writer to ‘only in porn’ scenarios such as a milk enema scene (“it’s the last thing we do because it can get a little messy”).
The lighthearted article plays up the over-the-top themes that serve as entertainment for porn viewers, while also serving as a reminder to civilians (non-porn stars) that life doesn’t necessarily have to imitate art. “I don’t want to have sex like a porn star,” concludes Zane upon reflection of his action-packed day, “because frankly, it seems like a lot of work.”
