English term or phrase: "not just straight ski porn!"
Still the same contest.

The rules are as follows:

=====
The rules are simple: make a short (10 minutes max) documentary-based film (not just straight ski porn!) on an early season session.
=====

Did I miss something (a play on words or something else) or are they just saying that the short must not be a porn film? what is the meaning of straight here (sexual orientation?).

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks

The word "porn" is used in an abstract meaning. It's something which looks good, impressing and may give you a kick.

agree  Ken Cox: 'straight ski porn' would mean 'only ski action, in your face', or something along these lines. Porn has become so poplular that the scope of meaning has enlarged considerably.\'vicarious thrills' for the older generation ;-)

  -> yeah, I guess "porn" here is something you watch for the sake of it, in an almost voyeuristic fashion. thanks!
agree  Carol Gullidge: yes, they say that ski-ing is the next best thing to sex - or is it the other way around?//Well, it does come pretty close :)

  -> I don't know much about skying... so I can't really tell :-)
