View Full Version : What to do with a Box 'o Porn?

A few years ago a friend of mine gave me two fairly large boxes of VHS porn. With porn being so prevalent on the 'net, I haven't found a need to crack open the boxes. I can't exactly sell them at the garage sale and donating them to the Goodwill would be in poor taste.

Any ideas?

Andy, for the last time, I don't want your giant box of pornography!

Oddly there are collectors who eschew digital copies and want the original VHS movies for rare out of production stuff. Try eBay to see pricing.

Any Andrew Blake among them? Are you allowed to ship them across state lines? I'll give you my address! ;)

Good lord my husband's going to kill me.

Er, purely to assess fair market value, of course.

Step 1: Plant them in your boss's office.
Step 2: 'Discover' them and take photos.
Step 3: Profit!

It's there.Seriously. I had no idea you could sell porn on eBay. I'll gladly give them to a fellow Doper if you want to pay for postage. Send me a PM if you're interested.

Er, purely to assess fair market value, of course. Dude, the ONLY reason to own a VCR is for vintage porn viewing! I have an extra VCR I can give you!!

In for a penny in for a pound - SEX PARTY AT casa Shayna!! Oh no, now I'm really in trouble! :eek:

Seriously. I had no idea you could sell porn on eBay. I'll gladly give them to a fellow Doper if you want to pay for postage. Send me a PM if you're interested. How big of a box are we talking about? Are there any Andrew Blake among them? I wouldn't want to deny you making some money on them, but I wouldn't mind any Blake titles you might have. :)

Mail them to me. 90% percent of everything that comes into my house mysteriously disappears.

So 90% of your pies can develop mysterious holes?

As noted above, there are a number of collectors who are looking for vintage porn. This isn't quite as cool as if you'd been handed boxes of old Super 8 porn reels (which could bring in a small fortune if parceled out properly on eBay), but there is a large subgroup of folks who capture/digitize older Beta and VHS porn that is not available on DVD, who are often willing to pay decent money for individual titles. Smaller studios, early releases, amateur/pro-am releases, hard-to-find niches, and softcore (believe it or not!) can fetch decent money. I know a few folks in the girl/girl scene who would pay a few hundred dollars for clean VHS (or better) versions of certain amateur and pro-am releases.

Make sure you write Canada on the box, so if someone finds it at your house, it'll look like you're holding it for Canada.

Just be very careful. There may be Traci Lords titles lurking in the box - double-check against her IMDB list (http://imdb.com/name/nm0000183/) to make sure you don't unwittingly own "child pornography".

Without giving the cut-off date, that list doesn't help much. "Traci, I Love You" (1987) and later are okay. Earlier titles are mostly illegal (though if I have read correctly, Foxy Boxing is legal, since she doesn't appear nude, and the list you linked to lists things like HBO comedy series...).

Melt down the VHS tapes, make a cast of a voluptuous woman, and then fill in the mold with the molten VHS remains.

If we find a doper who wants VHS porn let me know. I've got 4 or 5 that I can mail to them as well.

I didn't bother to search for a list of illegal Traci videos, true. I sort of assumed the OP would know to filter the list. It's a shame, because she was in some really excellent films like the Taboo series.

Nah, that won't work. They won't know what a VCR is or how to use it. They grew up on DVDs.

And probably know where to find better stuff online, any way.

But make sure it's all commercial stuff first, you don't want to accidentally find out you've been holding child porn all these years.

Eww, used porn. Are all the tapes stuck together? Do you have to knock one off the main mass with a ball-peen hammer in order to stick it into the VCR? Or can you flick it off like a sticky booger?

I hope someone will post links to the ebay stuff - I am morbidly fascinated that there is a market for things like this.

For the record, I have a VCR - is there a standalone DVR that isn't tied to a dish or cable service?

If you go to eBay and select the "Everything Else" category, one of the categories under that heading is "Adult Stuff". In order to view anything in the "Adult Stuff" category, however, you have to be registered at eBay - I'm presuming this is to prevent underaged viewing of the items listed there.

Are they so bad that they couldn't fix them up? Or would that get them in trouble, too? You know, add censor bars and/or remove nude scenes. Or even do a perfectly faithful remake.

As for what you do have, look for ones that aren't available online. You can probably make something from them, and, if you can't, you can at least enrichen the porn community.

Whatever you do, dont burn them, we found four or five boxes of porno magazines in the attic of a friend of mine, we started to use them to prepare the fire for an "asado" (BBQ), but some of my friends started to jokingly impersonate Torquemada and got carried away with the whole "burn the evil filth!" mood and we ended up burning part of a tool shed in my friend's backyard....

Memories memories...

Stick the box on a catapult (http://imagepoop.com/image/1794/Boromir-What-about-a-catapult.html) and hurl it into Mordor.
