9to5 - Days in Porn focuses on the people behind a controversial and multi-billion dollar industry "The Adult Entertainment industry". It depicts their stories, each one different, unadorned and authentic, without glorification or prejudice. It delivers deep insight into their personal lives - from glamorous to grotesque - strange, fascinating, offensive, absurd and sometimes funny moments all at once. Written by Jens Hoffmann

Alternate Versions

In order to avoid receiving an R18 classification in the UK (restricting the film to adult cinemas and sex shops). The distribution company opted to edit 5 minutes and 3 seconds of cuts which removed clear images of explicit sexual detail during the filming of scenes for sex works and in clips from sex works. The distributors were also forced to make mandatory changes to the film to remove images of abusive and potentially harmful sexual activity in order for the film to receive any UK classification. (The version submitted was the 94 minute version) See more »

A very "penetrating" documentary
3 July 2016 | by RodrigAndrisanSee all my reviews

You want to have a career in the porn industry? This documentary can show you how you could do that. Important is to be in the US, the country of all possibilities, specifically in California, in Los Angeles, there is the heart of the world's porn. The documentary introduces us in everyday lives of several porn stars, shows us their family life, they explain what motivated them to become actors, actresses, directors, producers, agents of the porn genre. The common denominator: money, fame and pleasure for real sex. But, is it really real? No, it isn't. It's just very profitable. What the film do not explain is why people need porn. Because it is a real crazy demand. Porn artists make billions of dollars, they have their own awards (Oscar equivalent), etc., just check their credits here on IMDb...
