So Vice published a bunch of photos of porn stars eating yesterday, and they’re a lot more interesting than I thought they would be when I first saw the headline. Rather than showing them doing ridiculous things with their food, most of the photos show their subjects doing a regular thing in a regular way, hence humanizing them to the viewer. A lot of them look fairly normal when not in porn get-ups, like someone you might be friends with. It’s not surprising to me, but it might be to someone who doesn’t know any porn people.

Then again, some of them are doing ridiculous things with their food, because some porn stars are flashy, over-the-top extroverts, while others are (surprise!) not. It’s also interesting to think about the photos in terms of appetites, because I think it’s safe to say that those who choose to be in porn (especially alt-porn, which is often a labor of love) generally have higher sexual appetites than the general population, so you want to see what they’re eating, how they’re enjoying it, and whether or not they’re more hedonistic in general when it comes to physical pleasures. Obvious answer: it varies, because different people are different. Click over to Vice to see the rest of the photos.
