Dirty Little Secrets


HIV in the porn industry is all over the blogosphere. Poor, poor porn stars, having unprotected sex with a gazillion people and getting infected. Poor, poor pitiful porn stars.

If you stand out in the rain, and so get wet, is it a tragedy? I cannot feel sorry for these people in the proper sense of the term. Where is the line between cold-hearted and sensible?

I don't like porn, I don't like the porn industry, I especially don't like people who say 'porn is a victimless crime.' & I really don't want to be taxed to protect pron stars, who had better all be adults and who ought to be perfectly capable of protecting themselves.

Pornography that involves children, animals, and/or violence is not victimless. Porn acts that end up creating an outcry for regulations and inspections take money from people like me to create yet another taxing body. Porn stars that contract nasty, permanent, debilitating diseases drain the general revenue. They will need care; we don't really want to throw them in the gutter to die. It would be the natural thing to do (as in following nature's course), but the goal of the human soul is to rise above nature where possible.

Ya know what else? Porn makes lousy lovers. Men who are into porn lack imagination and interest. In general, their love-making technique is more mechanical. "As seen on TV!" An interest in technique, as opposed to an interest in the woman, in her body, in her, makes for a cold, detached, self-absorbed lover who is DULL! "How'm I doing?"

Yawn. Why bother?

Married women will confirm this, in secret, in whispers . . yes, he's been much more exciting since staying off the porn. They won't say it out loud, to their husband's face, for fear of harming the poor little dear's sensitive male ego.

Love-making is an art, not a science. It's a union, not a dog-and-pony show.

If you are not sufficiently attracted to your partner without the use of artificial stimulants, maybe - just maybe - you shouldn't be with that person in the first place. If your penis isn't performing, maybe your penis knows something you don't. Maybe your penis knows where it doesn't want to be.

Best sex quote I ever saw was on the comments section of some blog talking about the Jackson/Timberlake fiasco and the lousy commercials as well as the lousy half-time show.

"If you people hadn't made sex so boring by shoving it down everyone's throats 24/7, maybe you wouldn't need all that viagra!"

Yeah, I know there are medical issues blah blah yadda yadda - that's not what I'm discussing here. You know it.
