Porn in Africa..

Hi guys,

I know the title of this post has most of you sitting or standing wherever you are covered in goose-flesh. Have no fear, i'll try to keep it SFW. Anyway, most of us know that the porn industry worldwide is a billion dollar industry. The money made off porn on an annual basis is phenomenal. This trend has been on for centuries if I must say and it doesn't seem to be going anywhere.

The purpose of this is simply to inform you all that Africa, the continent where it is believed that fear, shame, respect, family, culture and religion is enough to keep such 'lewd' practices at bay is officially IN THE SHOW!! Yes, Africans have found their way into the porn industry with Ghana leading the pack and closely followed by South Africa.

When I say they are in the show, I mean an African production with an African cast and crew on African soil. We all have heard the rumours, we have also pushed them aside as things that would never get serious; Unfortunately, its serious business already.

At first, leading the pack from the on-set were the francophone African countries with the release of taped 'Mapouka' sessions (this apparently is like taking a camera into a strip club..); these videos were mass produced and introduced into the VCD/DVD markets and sales boomed, causing them to include male/female explicit scenes in the subsequent releases.



Then Ghana with their hunger for exploring all angles to development, decided it was time to take it a little higher. This they very well did with the production of 'Esewuani: The Adventures of Wapipi Jay', an explicit porn video with multiple scenes that made a very poor attempt at having a plot with poor camera work. This video featured real Ghanian actors/actresses who spoke the native tongue throughout the video.

Next and most recently topping the African porn charts, we have South Africa! Yes, i guess they felt it was only right after hosting the World Cup already. Some dude who calls himself Mampincha got an idea, put some pretty good money down, hired a pure South African cast and crew and shot 'Mapona: Volume 1'; the x-rated flick also features multiple scenes shot with a pretty standard camera, lighting and some professionalism.

I honestly do not know how far this is going to go, but they are already promising a sequel to the first release. If any other african countries are going to follow in their strides, i do not know; And if that particular industry has come to stay, I shall keep my fingers crossed...
