Buyer probably wasn't the only one pulling out in that house.

Maybe one day some the past actors or actresses would show up at the door and plan a reunion of some sort

Weird. It isn't like people will stop for a picture like they might the "Home Alone" house or anything. I doubt the exterior of the home was featured.

And frankly, I doubt that anyone that has viewed films shot in this home is going to notice anything either. They don't watch for the plot and they aren't interested in the screenplay or cinematography.

One night, the conversation turned to houses used as porn locations. Everybody could name several, and a couple of people (who also owned houses in the Hollywood/Beverly/Bel Air hills), could name films or bodybuilders that had been filmed/photographed in their own homes, before they bought them.

Basically, if you have an interesting-looking older home in the LA area (20s - 80s), chances are, it's been used for a porn shoot. People have been renting (or lending) exotic-looking homes, since the early days of the industry. Frequently, photos taken by Gay "Physique Photographers", have turned out to be the best documentation of a lot of the more spectacular old LA estates, with their original landscaping. The skuzzier "Jetsons/Brady Bunch" looking homes, were rented/lent for the skuzzier porn productions.

And on the OTHER coast (Atlantic), the current revival and study of Minimalist Modernist beach architecture, has been aided by all the porn shoots at Fire Island houses. People keep the films. People keep the photos. I'm not sure WHY someone would bother to replicate the original linoleum, when restoring a 70s beach house. But they CAN, because there it is, under that body-part close-up detail of "Roger" - in a darkroom-made original photo from somebody's treasured personal collection.

As for the "Wifey" series... In our three decades of sporadic searching (as in, every few years, when we're stuck in a hotel room, and bored out of our minds), "Wifey" is practically the ONLY erotic product that we haven't found to be unspeakably tacky and repulsive. Basically, it's a decent-looking mature woman, doing NORMAL things, with her spectacular muscle-bull of a husband. I'm glad to know his name: OTTERSON. Sexy.... A big, massive Scandinavian. For me, his having been in the house, would be an enhancement, rather than a negative.
Studying the vintage architecture is perhaps the most creative reason I've heard for collecting porn. Cheers!

Of course you would, JB! That goes without saying.

I'm trying to picture how the locations used in pornos are something we should expect our buyers agent to be an expert on.

As an aside, my husband is now wondering if we should start ordering these study materials pronto, and whether they are a business expense we can write off.

It's well known in the area for what went on there. Neighbors did not like it and organized some resistance toward it. I think any reasonable person would expect their buyer's agent to know this and to warn them. It was the home of a very famous porn business for many years apparently.

It's my view that this is EXACTLY the kind of thing that a buyer indirectly or directly pays $10k or more to be informed of. Well actually, in this case a buyer's agent services would cost around $50k. Yes, certainly would expect my buyer's agent to know about this and to warn me about it. Maybe I'm just too demanding???

I have no idea what "well known" means in this context.

It's a tongue-in-cheek article published entirely for it's salaciousness. I am not going to hang too much on its facts.

Most here are having a bit of fun with it.... I might recommend you try that.

Well, in fairness to JB, even if the Buyer's agent didn't live in the immediate neighborhood, he should have been watching a lot more porn so that he could stay abreast of the situation.
