The UK's 'Porn Hollywood' is Famous for Low Crime and its Village Atmosphere

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

As I discovered at MWC last month, much of the porn industry has moved on from the days of shooting grimy footage in a caravan behind the back of a supermarket. Dirty movies are becoming seriously impressive, with companies like Naughty America currently ramping up the production of incredibly-realistic VR content. Unfortunately, here in the UK, we seem to be stuck in the bad old days.

Sutton has had the dubious honour of being nicknamed the UK’s ‘Porn Hollywood’, with over 125 smutty movies believed to have been shot in the London suburb, famous (well, relatively) for its green spaces, low crime rates, high-achieving schools and quiet atmosphere.

More than half of those were filmed in car parks in the town centre. Gavin Waller, the director of the St Nicholas Centre has all-but-confirmed that a camera-romp took place on its grounds, saying, “We are aware of an incident that took place in the car park at the St Nicholas Centre last year. The onsite security team informed Sutton police who dealt with the incident quickly.”

According to reports, porn outfit Fake Taxi reacted to the news by announcing via Twitter, “It’s all over the papers. Think its time2move2another town.” But where would they go next? Beverley? Berwick-Upon-Tweed? Royal Leamington Spa? [Standard, Mirror]
