Why Porn and Pantomime are So Similar

British cross-dressing at its finest

First a confession: I haven’t actually watched a huge amount of porn for reasons that will become apparent soon. So this essay is based on my impressions that were largely formed many years ago when porn movies were the staple form of erotic entertainment. Today, short-form video clips of varying quality apparently dominate and I suspect evince less variety than the “blue movies” of yesteryear.
