It is incredulous to me how they can do a large member production. If a production company does a large cast shoot how does the director and the workers on the movie set control the cast after they all go into heat? In order to do the story lines and scenarios etc? I would think that after the entire cast goes into heat it would be impossible to control them. Am I the only one who wonders about this?

I think the key is that performers in pornography are human beings who have control over their desires just like everyone else. While we may be "human animals" to co-opt animal rights activist Peter Singer's "non-human animals," using words like "going into heat" kind of reduces these mindful human beings to a non-human level, which I find pretty disrespectful. I know you probably mean no harm but why are you viewing people who do this one line of work any differently in terms of human nature than people who are, say, a doctor or a plumber?

By the way, did you see my response to your other post here? [Smile]

Just to be clear, you do understand that people don't "go into heat" the way some animals do, yes?

In other words, if you are assuming people have "heat" periods, you're mistaken. And in sexual situations, human beings all make conscious choices. Our intelligence as a species (as well as the fact that our motivations for sex differ in many ways from most other species) is such that anything sexual we elect to do is a choice, not something we do either merely out of an instinct to breed or dominate, nor are we unable to control our sexual actions when aroused.

Or, in this case, when acting, as many pornography actors are not particularly aroused, they're doing work to pay the bills.
