I don't get it. I don't see how a naked woman wearing socks and mary janes is any sexier than a woman who takes off her socks and shoes... in fact, it disturbs me when they have shoes on... what's the point?!?

Maybe so they can run away when the vice cops show up? Or maybe, if arrested for some reason, they coudl claim they were not entirely naked?

Porn sets often have quite dirty floors. Throughout the course of action in a scene, it is quite likely that you'll end up seeing the bottom of the actress' feet. Dirty feet are considered by most (but certainly not all) to be quite unsexy. Shoes keep her feet from looking dirty.

That makes way too much sense.

Is there really a sexy way to take off socks and shoes??

I don't think taking them off with teeth, like you would underwear, is really a hot option... it's just akward.

And the thing Mojo said bout the floors...

You wanna see some serious socks and shoes, check out my site. Only it's the MEN... with loafers, knee his and leg garters in many cases. And often, to top it all off, a mask!

Athlete's foot is the plague of the industry. Nobody knows the depth of the heartbreak.

It's so that they have something "left" to share with their significant others that's still "personal".

I was recently asked by a friend to takes some "tasteful nudes." I did a few of her in the shower - the waterproof housing was an excellent investment :D - but I didn't think she looked her best with soap in her eyes so I moved her over to the sofa after she got hair and makeup taken care of. We were going for something like Kate Winslet on the divan in Titanic but IMHO I had a much better model to work with. I was probably the only one who thought Rose was too skinny. Anyway I did ask if she wanted to wear heels and she just laughed becuse it was such a convention in porno. She has quite pretty feet so it was no loss to have her barefoot. The pictures came out great but she's convinced she looks like Jabba the Hutt. :rolleyes: I swear that if I ever meet a woman who actually likes her body I will friggin' die of shock. I thought she looked more like Carrier Fisher in her slavegirl getup but I'm an admitted neanderthal so what do I know?

Dirty feet are considered by most (but certainly not all) to be quite unsexy. Shoes keep her feet from looking dirty. Mojo and Sue Duhnym are pretty much right on the money.

Porn sets are often dusty or dirty, and in some cases are hastily constructed, so you have the dual threat of unsightly dirty foot-bottoms, plus the added danger of stepping on one of the construction left-overs: nails, splinters, or glass (think broken light bulbs).

There is another angle, however, and that is the shoe fetish. There is a huge, if not at least partly subconscious market, for women in nice (usually high-heeled) shoes. This isn't exactly what NightRabbit is talking about, but often times you'll see the porn bunnies in nylons and or high heels, but with little or nothing else on. These help accentuate the calves of the women wearing them, so are often left as part of the fantasy.

Perhaps if they had to do all the shoots starting with the woman (or man) taking down her hose, they would have to include the cost of riped hose in the "actress'" pay?

As for guys. well, nothing says "I'll dead sexy!" like athletic socks on a hedgehog.

While Stoid's site sounds very interesting, this has got to be the world's worst advertisement.



Naked men in loafer's and black socks?

Surely even the gay guys are retching.

As for the "hedgehog," you'd have to watch porn to get it, ask around about Ron Jeremy :D

Hey! I want "As for guys, well nothing says "I'm dead sexy" like athletic socks on a hedgehog." for a sig! LOL for the imagery and ridiculousness of the imagery...but then, if it has something to do with porn, maybe I don't want it. Hmmm....

Awww c'mon. It's obvious.

You know how hard it is to get semen out from under your toenails? They wear sensible footwear so their feet won't get sticky.

Please. :D :D :D :D :D :D

moggy, it's all yours. Don't worry about the porn angle, the only ones that would think that are the folks that watch porn, so they'd be in no, uh, position to say anything.

I think we have the real answer right up there in Cartoons post. The upside is that you can really get a mirror shine on those tennies!

... which is kinda spooky, considering he did play such a part in Super Hornio Bros..

IANAL and this may be UL, but what I had always heard about str8 porn was that in olden days when "nudity" legally equalled "obscenity," having the men wear black socks was a defense. "He's not nude, he's wearing socks." No idea if, or why, women would be in socks and/or shoes, although perhaps the reason is the same? Or some old perv just decided shoes on a nekkid woman look hot and it became a trend and then an institution. Reaching back into the memory banks to my (thankfully) limited experiences with str8 porn I don't remember that the women *always* wore shoes.

FWIW, in gay porn the choices are either bare feet, dirty white socks or socks and work boots. Since the guys are usually originally wearing jeans, they apparently take off the boots, remove the jeans and then put the boots back on again. Personally I hate it when they keep their socks on. It looks so artificial.

At least for gay porn, I don't think the dirtiness of the set is a factor. A lot of them are shot in people's homes who presumably keep their floors free of nails, broken lightbulbs and other misc. debris.

Why shoes and socks?

Two words: porn feet-os (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?threadid=32234).
