Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals Compiles 'Top 10 Porn Films Since 2010' for Uproxx
VENICE, Calif. — Sociologist Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals is penning a two-part series, “Porn As Art: The Top 10 Best Porn Films Since 2010” for Uproxx.com’s FilmDrunk category.
This week Dr. Tibbals unveiled her picks for slots six through ten, explaining that they are arranged in no particular order except number one, which she describes as “Best Ever.”
She prefaces the list: “Chances are, you have your own top-ten list. And chances also are that your choices totally don’t coincide with mine. “That’s ok! What appeals to any of us on any level is intensely personal (and I also have that whole sociology thing to factor in, too).”
Kicking off the list is Popporn’s “Man vs. Pussy” from 2011, which Dr. Tibbals says was her absolute favorite flick until her new number one nudged it aside.
“Let me tell you — ‘Man vs. Pussy’ is one of the greatest studies of masculinity, camaraderie and porn making ever,” she writes. “It’s nail-biting action and human drama that could never be faked. You will literally find yourself shouting at the screen, cheering for Anthony [Rosano’s] successes, laughing your ass off and near tears as the film unfolds.”
Next up is lauded director B. Skow’s “Pee-Wee’s XXX Adventure” for Vivid entertainment that released in 2012.
She writes, “’Pee-Wee XXX’ is not a parody of any previously produced mainstream version. Oh no. ‘Pee-Wee XXX’ is next level in its brilliant creativity — it builds off the source material, incorporating key elements into a truly original and clever pornified storyline, resulting in final product that’s nothing short of golden.”
Another B. Skow film, “Truth Be Told,” gets a nod. The 2013 psychological thriller is packed with deplorable characters and startling twists, “and the style of the film itself is super creepy,” she writes. “Very film noir Hitchcock-ish.”
Also occupying spots on the list are Evil Angel’s ongoing “Voracious” vampire series and Elegant Angel’s “Dani Daniels: DARE” Mason-directed showcase.
The next installment featuring picks one to five is slated to debut next week.
Dr. Tibbals, an embedded public sociologist, has been studying the adult entertainment industry for more than ten years. She has been tapped by Uproxx’s FilmDrunk department to head up the “Adult Film Minute,” where once a month she will be discussing the adult biz and “why it should matter to you.”
Dr. Tibbals’ research has been published in numerous scholarly journals, and she has been quoted and cited by cultural and news media outlets, including CNN, VICE and KPCC (NPR).
