Alternaporn is a type of pornography that features types of male and female models largely absent from traditional mainstream pornography. Alternaporn models tend to have characteristics such as tattoos, body piercings, unusually colored hair, a gothic style of dress, slightly plump appearance, etc. Generally, such pornography is produced by small-time pornography companies outside of the main pornography industry.
Vegan porn entrepreneur Furry Girl of vegporn.com has suggested the following definition of alternaporn:
- models are invited to express themselves and have a say in how they are presented.
- does not necessarily feature people with coloured hair and body mods. It defies convention not through subculture, but by embracing all types of beauty and showing off people and styles ignored or fetish-ised by mainstream porn.
- portrays sexuality in a positive way and stays true to the idea of safe, sane, and consensual sex play.
- models are not required/coerced to do unpaid work like answering viewer email, socializing on the site, or meeting people in public. The level of person involvement is up to the model.
- does not perpetuate stereotypes and negative attitudes about race, size, gender, and sexual orientation.
- is generally run on the smaller scale by real-life friends, lovers, and people who are a part of each other's lives outside of porn.
- is not content thrown together by large adult companies in attempt to cater to the trend of "punk" or "goth" porn. It is creative and unique, an expression of the people who make it.
- models are portrayed as multidimensional beings, with interests other than sex.
- sometimes works to foster community on the site by forums, journals, and chat rooms where models, webmasters, and viewers can interact.
- webmasters network and make connections with others in the "niche", and help one another out.
- has the confidence to be proud of being different without attacking other mainstream sites/models as "dumb blondes" or "bimbos". Intellect and personal worth can not be judged by a person's choice of appearance and how they decide to represent themselves in the adult industry.
