Why top 10 porn sites are banned in San Francisco film festival?

Film festivals are a popular travel or holiday bucket-list activity for most film lovers but there is an aspect that bothers quite a good number of festival goers – the absence of explicit adult content from these showings. For many, San Francisco festivals would be even more thrilling if they showed content from porn sites like Naughty America and Brazzers. After all, the festival should be part fun and unwinding, right?
Sadly, this wish- fantasy if you may- is unlikely to come true at your favorite film festival. The fault could be the government’s, the organizers’ or even the porn producers’. It depends on which angle you view it from. Whichever way, it just isn’t getting screened.
Here are the top answers to the question of why top 10 porn sites in http://adultsiteranking.com/home.php are banned in most film festivals?
Festivals are family events

Festivals are family events
Conventional festivals open their doors to all and sundry. People attending these events are often families slotting them as part of their holiday or travel diaries. They come to the event looking to enjoy a good family time and bond over a favorite showing.
People looking for such a bonding experience would not really appreciate if there were explicit sex scenes being shown. Festival organizers have to strive to satisfy their clients’ desires. This they do by often screening general family content that visitors of all ages and genders can enjoy together.
It goes without saying that content even from the most popular porn sites is unlikely to get screened at the Cannes or Toronto film festival.
It really isn’t part of film organizers’ plans to control attendees who want to live out their fantasies when they come across their favorite pornstars!
Authorities demand so

Authorities demand so
As much as the entertainment industry wants to be granted absolute freedom to create, there still exist a good number of laws to control it. The screening of adult content is especially kept on a tight leash by regulation authorities. Some content, for instance, is blanketly disallowed during watershed hours. Now, San Francisco film festivals often have round the clock screening and may easily find themselves in violation of these regulations.
The risk is huge, with potential big fines or even a withdrawal of permits for violations. There is a degree to which these laws can stretch. However, rather than play around with the risk of getting burned, many film festivals opt to issue a blanket ban on all porn websites, the top ten included.
Pornstars detest film festivals

Pornstars detest film festivals
Most pornstars prefer to just be known by their stage names. Unlike conventional film actors, not many pornstars are open to having their private life laid bare. This stems from the fear that society may castigate and stigmatize them. A good number have not even let their families in on what they do for a living.
Now, most festival organizers want the film actors present during the screening. They want them to meet and greet the fans; let them (fans) in on their (performers’) private lives. Some scenes are even played out live. That makes a film festival everything a pornstar wouldn’t be excited about. If pornstars won’t be attending the screening, then festival organizers won’t be showing their pictures either.
Fair or not? be the judge.
Porn sites have their own festival

Porn sites have their own festival
Maybe, just maybe, if porn sites fought harder to have their content included in film festivals, they would get some positive results. But they don’t, and they just won’t. Instead, they prefer to have their own festival for porn content only. The Adult Video Network (AVN) film expo allows porn to deliver what other film festivals won’t allow them to show their audiences.
The expo most commonly held in Las Vegas allows performers to operate under much less restricting rules than they would get at, say, the New York Film Festival. For starters, it is not really necessary that performer is actively involved in the festival. Attendance is largely optional. Also, the people attending this festival know from the beginning that it is adult themed. This makes the atmosphere more relaxed with no frowns of judgment likely to occur during screening.
If you can have it at your own convenience, why fight for it elsewhere? The other film organizers may as well stick to their ban!
You may think you have a case for the screening of adult content at every other film festival, but it will take some convincing to push such a case through. But hey, what is impossible? You could be that hero whom adult entertainment lovers are looking for. Sounds like too much of a task? Well, why not just enjoy the AVN expo instead?
