GGW is without a doubt, the best reality series ever made period. Nothing in the whole adult entertainment industry can capture the sexuality of America's young women as great as them. On the videos, you're seeing real American college-aged girls, not pros, engaging in sexual acts and all in real time. The scenes are not planned step-by-step, so there's no telling just how far these girls will go. This element is what keeps the series fresh every time. The girls are not doing GGW for money, but for their own pleasure! What a bold and sexy statement these girls are making!
Sexual Empowerment GGW was a phenomenon that initially bewildered me to no end. How can something this tacky and vulgar is even able to get a plethora of beautiful young women to go wild for them -- and for no compensation whatsoever! It's so surprising that a lot of them are so gorgeous and so innocent looking with fun personalities. Why would they risk future embarrassment? Then it hit me. I realized why these girls are so willing do it. GGW is synonymous with sexual empowerment that's why. What GGW offer these women is an opportunity to express and unleash their sexual side for the whole world to see. It's not hard to imagine the thrill they must be having from "crossing the line", opening their souls to a new world. It's a experience all of these girls will never forget, so to them it's worth it "not getting paid" for performing. This very human element is what is lacking in most porn. That's what makes GGW that much more interesting and relatable, even though it's not too hardcore. You only live once -- Why not?
In GGW, you're actually seeing the American girl-next-door doing something she doesn't normally do. She comes across GGW one night. She's enthusiastic, but a little nervous being on. After a long night of partying and a moment of being on the spotlight, She goes from a state of delicate modesty to being a full blown exhibitionist, hence the name "Girls Gone Wild". Fact is young women also crave sex, so why not make a series exposing and celebrating it? Have a big outlet for them to express their sexual side. Turning a fantasy into reality. What's not to love? It's something greatly lacking on the porn industry. The founder is smart enough to capitalize on it.
GGW concocted the perfect balance between softcore and hardcore porn not seen anywhere else. It's explicit and raw, but in a tasteful and somewhat innocent way. It's more erotic and sensuous than most porn. I personally think even labelling it "porn" oversimplifies it. I see it more of an uncensored reality series about the sexuality of young American women. They are sexually liberating themselves on GGW. Loving themselves and being the perfectly imperfect angels that they are. They are only young once and they are living their youth to the fullest!
Content Overview It's goes without saying the series is absolutely a girls-only club. It doesn't not include any males besides the camera man filming the magic and the occasional host (which sometimes is the scumbag founder himself. UGH!)! What turns me off regular hardcore porn is seeing naked ugly dudes. No sausages here. Only naked beautiful women in real sexual rendezvous. Women are in charge of the action in GGW. A beautiful young woman's body and soul are the focus of the series.
The overall plot of a GGW video is blissfully simple, yet so effective. It's essentially the 00's answer to the Beach Party movies from the 60s, but with more sex of course. It's the celebration of the beauty, excitement and sexual energy of youth and the building of sexual tension that leads to the ultimate reveal. They find the hot girls on location (whether at the beach or at the club), interview them and just let them do their heart's desire. It can be something innocent like a tease (flashing their breasts or kissing other girls) or to something more wild and hardcore (playing with toys or indulging in all-girl sex orgies in their hotel room or all aboard the infamous GGW tour bus). This unpredictability is a major component of GGW, because it highlights how real it all is. You're seeing beautiful young women exploring their sexuality and embracing their feminine form in the most freshest and natural way possible. They agree to be on for their own pleasure and of course ours, which I'm sure the latter helps reciprocate the former. You just don't see that mixture of sexual spontaneity and innocence that GGW possesses in the average hardcore porn.
The more hot and intimate action aboard the tour bus is what GGW is really about. They simply have the best, most tender and sensuous solo masturbation, girl-on-girl and all-girl orgy scenes out there bar none. The excitement from the girls breaking their own boundaries is so damn infectious. The girls are tastefully and elegantly shot to tell their story. You'll see a lot of kissing and caressing. GGW does an impeccable job capturing the girls' personalities, their facial expressions, and body movements while they're performing. It really accentuates the beauty of the girls and adds an extra level of intimacy between the girls and the viewer. It feels like real and feels like you are there. It's pretty evident the girls are not just baring their bodies, but also their souls. They are living in the moment and savoring every second of it. What amazes me about their Girl-on-girl orgy scenes is finding out the girls are mostly straight, not lesbians and many them even have boyfriends. They are using GGW as a outlet for sexual exploration. What a beautiful sight to behold.
If you are mainly looking for extreme explicitness, then I'm sorry, GGW is not for you. If you enjoy young women being empowered to let go of their inhibitions and embrace their sexual side, you won't be disappointed!
The Late Night Ads I vividly remember constantly seeing their intoxicatingly fun late nite ads on cable. It was a staple on late night tv in the last decade. Many millennial men definitely know what am talking about. Those ads were probably our first intro to sexual content. Being a horny teenage boy at the time, I was instantly hooked. I would even stay up late to see their longer infomercials! The ads immediately grabs your attention the moment you see and hear the "Warning" Not suitable for children" caption. Then it proceeds to take you to an short and exhilarating ride. They treat you to an avalanche of clips of young sexy girls flashing, running butt naked, kissing each other, etc. Their goodies are censured for tv of course (with those cute and hilarious censure bars). All the while, you hear sounds of immense pleasure emanating from all the women and GGW's catchy Jamaican steel drums theme music in the background. It leaves you wanting more. I can't stress the impressiveness of the GGW ads enough, even Don Draper couldn't have thought of a great ad campaign like that. It pushed the envelope. It was the closest thing to porn you'll ever see on basic cable tv, yet at same time it was edited in a way that made it playfully innocent, so it won't cause a massive uproar. It gave the GGW brand an image of a perfect world of endless parties, with a plethora of hot and horny schoolgirls, all of whom are willing to go "wild". If that isn't heaven I don't know what is! Effective marketing!
Criticisms The Ads are so entertaining and impressive, many are saying the ads are even better and motr effective than the actual content. I strongly disagree. Many critics are saying GGW is "too tame", "too boring", etc. What they have to understand is not every GGW video is created equal. There early VHS volumes are *beep* quality and wouldn't touch those. 2003/2004 is when they really got into full gear and highlight the timeless themes I talked about. They became more purpose-driven and nuanced with with their filming. The girls started having names and fun personalities. Almost every video is collection of 5 to 8 of intimate vignettes with a montage of clips between each of them as transition. Can't judge the whole series by seeing just one lackluster video.
Yes, I have numerous gripes with the series. Like the constant recycling of scenes that you already seen in other volumes. The almost complete lack of diversity in the women filmed. Apparently, the cameramen are encouraged mostly seek out white "girl next door" types. Which is extremely asinine. Which is the only MAJOR minus they get from me, because I find immense beauty in women with medium to dark complexions. They missed a big opportunity there for more success. The egregiously misleading titles of many videos is another thing, but I guess that's sorta plays a part in GGW's "charms". Yes, their content is not the most consistent, because their very spontaneous format just doesn't allow it. Its' foundational themes of sexual empowerment and its' unabashedly hedonistic vibe is what it's all really about. The explicitness is just the delicious whipped cream and cherry on top. The critics just don't get or appreciate the bold statement that GGW makes. They just want something to wank to. In a era where instant gratification is king, GGW is definitely a breath of fresh air.
Controversy Needless to say GGW receives universal condemnation from moralists across the whole political spectrum! It's subversive nature is another reason why I think it's great! Both the left and right despise it and regard it as an evil cancer plaguing our society and "corrupting" the minds of our youth. Thanks to its POS founder's behavior and legal troubles, the moralists on the surface do appear to have a convincing argument. Having such an unlikeable founder can really hurt a brand's image. Yet, none of it had anything to do with the actual series.
You'll hear many unfounded accusations of "exploitation" and of them taking advantage of naive young women. Anyone who watches the series closely know the girls are in no way getting exploited. Yes most of them are not paid, but they are not being forced against their will to be filmed. As a matter of fact, many of them exhibit an infectious eagerness to be on GGW, so I fail to see anything wrong with that. GGW is just simply capturing reality and selling it.
GGW is accused of being 'sexist" and of "objectifying" women by so-called feminists. On the contrary, the women are being empowered to be sexy. You see nothing but joy and excitement on the girls' faces. Feminists should actually praise GGW for encouraging many young women to enjoy and explore their sexuality. Unlike a significant number of porn out there, the girls are respected and are in control of their sexuality. They are not treated like a piece of meat. They are not forced to do anything they are not comfortable with. They WANT to be filmed because they feel it will be a fun little experience. I fail to see any sexism in that. GGW is a product that celebrates young women being free and living life to the fullest. It it really patronizing to women, for these people to claim they are either victims or too stupid for their own good. These women don't need these control freaks to tell what to do with their lives. They are adults and they can live with their choices.
I'm having a feeling a lot of these moralists are bitter, repressed people, who what everyone else to be miserable. They hate seeing beautiful young women having fun sexually by being on GGW. They hate the fact that GGW shows young women also crave sex. They hate seeing women enjoying getting male attention and want to please them. They are afraid of their "perfect little angels" will one day appear in a GGW video. Whether they like it or not, GGW proves young American women overwhelmingly do not adhere to any set of rules when it comes to their sexuality. They can think for themselves. Going against GGW is essentially going against freedom.
I feel a significant portion of all the ire about GGW is solely on the founder. The shame should all be focus on him instead. The girls who appear on GGW should be left alone. If he wasn't such a scumbag, GGW would be viewed much more favorably and actually get the appreciation it greatly deserves. Instead all the focus is on his antics.
Impact on American Culture I personally believe GGW is a piece of classic Americana like baseball and apple pie. If it had a more respectable founder it would've universally regarded as such. GGW is a symbol of sexual freedom in the 21st century. Appearing in a GGW video could've been a rite of passage ritual for hot college age girls for generations to come. It's impressive impact is still being felt in the culture - like straight girls experimenting with other girls sexually is now more mainstream thanks to GGW, to young women en masse getting more comfortable showing off their bodies on social media. GGW is absolutely not just for the enjoyment of horny guys. It's also meant for the enjoyment of women everywhere who wants a genuine source of sexual empowerment.
Conclusion GGW had all the ingredients for everlasting success, yet sadly this decade wasn't to kind to them. They went bankrupt in 2013, all thanks to the founder tarnishing its' image. That marked the end of an era. While, the current incarnation of the company ain't bad, there's still steamy all-girl orgy scenes, but they are only filming pros now. That just defeats the whole purpose of GGW, which again is about sexually empowering young women. About the excitement that emanates from them breaking their boundaries for just being on it. GGW sends a positive message to young women everywhere -- there's fun and fulfillment waiting to had when they safely express and explore their sexuality. There's absolutely nothing wrong with going wild every now and then. What GGW is fundamentally about is living life to the absolute fullest and not giving a damn what other's say. You can't get any more American than that!
Anyways, that's it for my rambling essay about GGW. It was great while it lasted. It's sizable impact in American culture is greatly undervalued and is currently regarded as a relic of the 00's. It deserves to get a second look.
Without further ado, here is GGW's best must-see titles in no particular order:
