Maybe it would be better if the photos were taken when they had relaxed, natural skin without makeup on it.

And one chick doesn't even have EYEBROWS so yeah, that's kind of a problem for her that makes it impossible for her to look okay without at least drawing those suckers back on.

The thing I noticed most is that the makeup makes many of them look older. Also they look bitchy. The makeup style is so "vampy" that the overall look is hard and intimidating. Not someone I would approach to ask directions or borrow a pen.
I agree. I think women look much more approachable without makeup. Some of those women look sweet without makeup, but are off-putting with their "mask" on.

How about the before and after vagina shots? All that bleaching, and labia alteration

Just goes to show that surface beauty can be just an illusion. True beauty is beyond the appearance anyway.

Very possibly; Of course, personally, I see no point in judging legally consenting adults who do porn (unless STDs are involved, which is a separate matter)--after all, it is their bodies, and they are making money by doing porn.

Nobody is asking you to judge the porn performers. But do you judge dog fighting to be horrific? The dogs involved want to fight. They were trained and molded to be fighting dogs. The performers in pornography "want" to do porn. They were trained and molded to do porn. When you consider the fact that 1 in 3 girls is sexually abused by the age of 18 and combine that with the powerful cultural message that a woman's worth is limited to her ability to sexually arouse and satisfy men, it is not difficult to understand how so many little girls are being trained to willingly sell their bodies. Not to mention how intoxicated, drug addicted, and mentally unbalanced most of these women are when they "consent" to participate in pornography. The idea of emotionally stable, sober, mature adult women choosing stripping, prostitution, and porn as a career is just part of the fantasy.

I guess I can just see better through people's make-up, because I've never seen a porn star that I thought was pretty. Some are attractive in harsh makeovers, but have never seen one that I consider good-looking. And most of these women in these pictures are still homely as Hell even made up.

I agree, most of them aren't anything to write home about. I personally find the overly made up porn looking female nasty looking, they remind me of some kind of Japanese anime creations....

There's another reason for so much make-up. It's harder for their fans to recognize them without all the war paint. Some of their fans can be obsessive. Mainstream actresses also look different when not made up for a role, premier, or awards show.

1. Yes, I would think so. After all, isn't it pretty violent?

2. Sure, but unlike (at least most, I would hope) porn stars, dogs don't have the mental abilities to analyze these kinds of things before deciding whether or not to do them. For instance, if children told you that they wanted to play with each other using loaded guns, would you have let them do this?

3. Well, Yes, at least many of them do want to do porn.

4. These females should get as much help as they need in regards to their (sexual) abuse. However, this is almost certainly not true for all (or perhaps even most) porn stars.

5. That's not consent, and this shouldn't count as consent for making porn. They should get real consent out of women who genuinely want to do porn.

6. For some women, Yes, but not for other women.
