In 2005 Channel 4 in the UK aired the first series of The Dark Side of Porn, consisting of four episodes which each explored the reality of the adult entertainment industry. Each of the four episodes was directed by a different individual (watch the first series here). The show was so successful that they commissioned a second series of five further episodes, all of which are available to watch on Documentary Vine and are detailed below.

Episode 1: Amateur Porn

Explores the bottom feeders of the British porn industry, super low budget productions where new males are lining up to do jobs unpaid in order to prove themselves.

Episode 2: Me and My Slaves

Filmed over the course of more than a year, this episode centres around Rick a professional BDSM Master who wants to quit the job after more than 25 years in the industry. He talks intimately about his life on camera.

Episode 3: Hunting Emmanuelle

The third episode explores the cultural impact of the 1974 movie Emmanuelle, a film which pushed the boundaries of what was allowed on screen. More than 300 million people watched the film and it remains one of the most successful French films ever made. The episode includes an interview with Sylvia Kristel, the Dutch actress who was the lead character in the film and propelled to super-stardom as a result.

Episode 4: Does Snuff Exist?

Investigates the truth behind snuff movies, a genre of film where somebody is actually murdered. Are they a myth created by fantasy, or is there really a demand for them out there and people working to meet that demand? It includes an interview with a senior British police officer.

Episode 5: The Real Animal Farm

Explores the grim world of bestiality movies, and the notorious illegal Animal Farm movie which was smuggled into the UK from Denmark in the late 1970’s. Several well known people appear on camera and confess to having seen bootleg copies of the film at the time, including feminist Germaine Greer and well known pornographer Ben Dover. It also explores the troubled mind and inevitable downfall Bodil Joensen, a Danish actress who appeared in the film.
