Equestria Uncovered: Who’s Afraid of a Porno Spoof?

Ugh… School work is piling up, and having so little free time has sapped my motivation to write an Equestria Uncovered on a weekly (or even monthly) basis.  If only there was something happening soon to reinvigorate my passion for writing about ponies.

Oh my.  That will do nicely.

Oh my. That will do nicely.

Surprising absolutely no one (and causing an audible groan to permeate throughout the Brony community), there’s a live action porno based on My Little Pony Friendship is Magic soon to be released.

While I’m going to discuss My Little Porny: Fucking is Magic (no really; that’s what they’re calling it), I’d like to use this as a jumping off point for discussing the clopping community in general.  Who knows!  Maybe we’ll all learn a little bit about ourselves in the process!  That or we’ll end up feeling REALLY awkward by the end.

Oh and FYI, while I’m hoping the above image will be the most inappropriate, I will be posting censored pictures of the film, as well as some censored images of clop.  In any case, even though I’m cutting out the nudity, I’d consider this NSFW.

Let’s start with a little bit of history.  Earlier this year, Pixel Vixens (a pornographic cosplay group) started a campaign on the adult crowd funding site Offbeatr.  The goal of the project was to use the raised funds to produce an adult film, and the people who gave money to the project were able to vote on what the subject would be.  Needless to say, MLP won by a landslide and the DVD will be available in a few weeks.  Production stills as well as a NSFW preview have been released, and the story seems to be that Twilight has R63’d herself (either that or Discord did it; it’s hard to hear what anyone is saying) which leads to him/her boning the rest of the cast.  Having seen the preview, it’s clear that a lot of work went into the costumes; which isn’t surprising considering that it’s their specialty.

What isn’t as good is the audio quality (which they have admitted is an issue and will hopefully fix by the time the DVD gets released), and the sets which range from outside to a kitchen to a “barn”.

It’s either a barn or a dungeon.

It’s either a barn or a dungeon.

I haven’t seen much of their work considering that they run a pay site, but judging by the quality of the video preview, it seems like they don’t have much experience making a movie whose content goes beyond filming their models having sex.  It’s one thing to film someone in a static location without much need for clear audio quality (moans don’t require a boom mic operator) but to do something on a more professional level, the filmmaking seems a bit amateurish.  Still, even if they didn’t have the best resources, they did do a lot to capture the essence of these characters and to give shout outs to certain running gags from the show.  Call me cautiously optimistic about the whole thing, assuming of course they make good on their promise to fix the audio issues.

So it seems a bit obvious to say that there are people out there who have a problem with this.  It’s understandable and I wouldn’t want to impose my values upon anyone else’s.  That being said, I don’t see what makes this the least bit more offensive than anything else we’ve seen from the porn industry in the past few years.  If anything, this is standard procedure given where the industry is right now.

For starters, cosplay pornography is nothing new.  Not only has Pixel Vixens made a career out of it, but there are several others out there doing the same.

I promise you they get naked.

I promise you they get naked.

Not only that, the “mainstream” pornographic industry has been dominated by parodies of popular licenses for years now, some of which are much stranger than others.

WOW

WOW

Sure, parodies have been a part of the porn industry for decades, just ask Buck Adams (well… if he wasn’t dead), but the rise of this genre in the past decade is notable.  As with all things in life, I ascribe this sudden change in how things work to the introduction of the internet.

In a pre-internet world, there were not a lot of feasible outlets for fans of niche properties to get together and have their voices heard by the greater culture at large.  This is why so much of entertainment up until the early 90s was very homogeneous.  Were there exceptions?  Sure.  Star Trek was popular enough in it’s time to more or less invent the idea of fan conventions, and Star Wars changed the whole entertainment industry with its use of classic genre tropes and more or less inventing the summer blockbuster.  However, despite genre successes like these, there was still no way for more niche audiences to be a viable market force, at least on a nationwide scale.

Ask any old school Anime fan what the 90s were like if you don’t believe me.

Ask any old school Anime fan what the 90s were like if you don’t believe me.

With the internet being able to connect people all over the world, and being able to provide an international market place, niche audiences are now able to interact and meet in ways they never could before, and prove that were more than willing to provide companies with as much disposable income as they could muster to whoever was willing to cater to them.  Hence, we’ve had the fragmentation of the global entertainment marketplace that has allowed genre, animation, and other smaller groups to be viable audience for companies to pay attention to.  This has led to the increase in movies based on comic books, anime being dubbed and sold in the US, and yes, pornography for anything and everything that people are looking for.

Thus creating Rule 34 for all of us to Google when feeling curious and bold.

This leads us inevitably to Cloppers.  As far as I’m concerned, the clop community is completely harmless and should be accepted as much as any adult community within a specific fandom.  Anyone claiming that they are doing some sort of harm or are worthy of scorn are just bullies looking for someone they can harass with impunity.  If you’ll indulge me for a second, which of these is the bigger threat: A private website that Cloppers can get together, role play, and share pictures (among other such actives), or the hackers who threatened to release all the members’ private information if the site isn’t shut down?

Look, I don’t give a shit if you hold a deep hatred for those who jerk off to porn based on a children’s cartoon show.  That’s fine, because it’s not my problem (or anyone else’s) what you think.  I start to have a problem when you take actions against people who you’ve never met, but have formed a lousy opinion of that makes them deserving of your righteous actions.  “Oh thank you brave warrior for fighting against the pervs in this world.  Truly your actions will show them the way to normality and true happiness. HAZA HAZA!!!!”  I’m not saying everyone who doesn’t like cloppers would support these actions, but this is the kind of thing that spewing hatred can lead to.

Thankfully, it seems that most of the other Bronies out there have mellowed out when it comes to this and just sees it as something that exists but doesn’t affect their love of the show or the community at large.  Despite Howard Stern’s “Exposé” from over a year ago, people outside the fandom have generally stopped caring as well.  There aren’t people banging their heads against the wall trying to stop dudes from jerking off to ponies, they’re using they’re time trying (AND FAILING) to stop gay marriage from becoming legal.

So is the existence of a porn based off of MLP something we should be concerned about as a community?  I don’t think so.  There’s so much out there for all kinds of people that to judge someone based on their spank material is being kind of closed minded and hypocritical.  However!  In case you do run into someone who does have a problem with it, just remind them that there are pornos based on The Simpsons and American Dad.  That person might just gain a bit of perspective.

Fan Favorites

It wouldn’t be an Equestria Uncovered without one these now would it?  Just to be clear, the selections this time around a very NSFW.

Fan Fiction

Salvation by SexyBack OR Salvation by Cold in Gardez

This is one of the first fan fics I’ve ever read, and I really lucked out finding such a good one so quickly.  It’s a story set several years in the future where the Mane 6 have grown up and some of them have left Ponyville for better careers.  The story focuses on Rarity and Rainbow Dash, one still looking for her prince charming, and the other having found love and lost it.  After a chance re connection, they decide to plan a trip to Ponyville to see their friends again and unwind from the stress their new lives have given them.  The way the author is able to give pathos to the two main characters that feels consistent with what we’ve seen in the show, yet being able to give them new characteristics based on their experiences in between the show and the start of this story, is quite amazing.  The clop in it works as well to establishing further changes these characters have gone through since they’ve become adults.  Sex, love, relationships, and just growing up will change people, and I like the way the author handles these ideas.  This is a really great story worth reading if you want something that doesn’t pull it punches when depicting sex (without going way over the top), but want something that’s grown up and deals with the issues that arise from being adults with adults problems.  The reason for the 2 links is because Cold in Gardez used a pseudonym account (SexyBack) when they wrote it originally for a competition.  Afterwards, they decided to rewrite it as an “uncut” version in order to fully realize some of the things they couldn’t have due to the time restraint, and posted it using their main account.  I haven’t read the uncut version yet (waiting for it to finish) so I can’t speak to its quality over the original.

Tumblrs

This one was a bit trickier considering that most of the tumblrs out that that do clop don’t have a running story and are mostly art posts.  That said, there were two in particular that impressed me.

Killryde’s Garage by James Brandon

There’s something about his style that I find very interesting, particularly when he switched focus from ponies to the Equestria Girls design.  While the pony stuff is done well (though crotch boobs are still kind of weird for me), the Equestria Girls designs work much better with his art style.  His offshoot comic, Bridle Girls, is decent as far as adult comics go though I hope he gets a bit ambitious with it and brings more focus to the character interactions rather than just the sex scenes.  The two characters are likable enough that I would like to see what they do outside the bedroom, but that’s just me.  Despite my uniformed musings on how he should do his craft, the work he does it great and is worth checking out.

You know what my favorite part of this fandom is?  When people with serious talent can see the potential in this franchise and gives us stuff that is just wonderful.  Fan fiction that’s just as good, if not better, than anything being written right now; animation that rivals the quality of the show, or goes in a new and unique direction; and artwork that show such genuine talent and craftsmanship that you’d want to get it framed.  I’m as far from an art expert that you can get, but just the use of lighting is stunning.  Not only that, but the colors are great, the attention to detail is perfect, and the anthropomorphic style is one of the best I’ve ever seen.  I know there’s a lot of junk out there, especially in the clop community, but this right here is evidence that the clop community is better than what people give it credit for.

Well that was a bit of detour.  I’m hoping that I was at least SOMEWHAT insightful when talking about smut.  Think I’m just a perv ?  Obviously.  Let me know what you think in the comments below!

One thought on “Equestria Uncovered: Who’s Afraid of a Porno Spoof?

  1. rtrcrane

    I seem to be more interested in the idea of MLP R34 than in actually engaging in it one way or another. I’ve been quite curious, mostly because I don’t think I’ve been passionate enough about any other property such as this one to even ponder the possibility of fantasizing about it in such a way, but I can’t really see myself really getting into it. Most of what I’ve seen and liked involves the characters as humans and it’s relatively tame; there is this one comic on Deviantart called “The Usual” which is pretty softcore, given how the sex is “real” but there is no drawing of genitalia (with the possible exception of a strap-on). I guess I just really like certain characters and thinking about the possibility of translating certain personalities into something I would find, for a lack of a better term, physically attractive.

    So with that, I don’t really have a problem with MLP porn, not only because even I can enjoy it from time to time, but also because I’ve met a few people online who are into it and, at least from what I can tell, are really cool people.

    I tend to agree that the sex in fan creations is always better when it’s complemented with something else. For some reason, I keep imagining it as a source of humor when it comes to MLP.
