Porn And AIDS

                                                               

Do me a favor:  go to google and type in the word "porn".  NO, NOT YET!  Please finish the blog first, kiddies.

Look, you might have read, about a year ago, that Los Angeles has passed a porn film law that porn actors have to wear a condom during their porn performances.  The law was spurred by a serious outbreak of AIDS cases among porn actors.  The porn industry is resisting, saying that porn patrons want to see see their sex raw, sans condoms, and they say the new law is hurting business.

So then, today, officials of the porn industry have declared their own three day moratorium because some porn actors who are filming in another state have tested positive for AIDS.  How responsible of them....three whole days!  

Look, I've seen my share of porn.  I remember being in Vegas in the mid-70's when a local theater was showing "Deep Throat".  It was my first porn film and I did a lot of scrunching down in the seat in a perfectly legitimate theater with folks who normally go to the movies to see "The Magnificent 7" (oh, please pardon that pun...totally unintentional) but came to see Linda Lovelace out of mere curiosity on how she did it.  (You innocents out there need not ask what I'm talking about).

Anyway, I saw "Deep Throat" and, in my grubby and sinful lifetime, probably a dozen other porn flicks.  Here's my take; it does absolutely nothing for me.  After you've seen it done in six different positions, by six different people, in a mechanical way, I get as much stimulation as I would watching a Car and Driver video on the piston function of a combustable engine.

I'm not an sex expert but I've been around enough to know that the sex is best when you're with someone you love, or at least care for.  

But I'm surely the porn exception or it wouldn't be a billion dollar industry.  Though I would ask this: isn't there enough porn already out there?  Enough so that these poor naked cretins could enjoy, say, a five year moratorium on new porn?  After all, it doesn't change much at all...with the exception of the initial novelty of "Deep Throat", I'm not seeing any Academy Award performances on porn celluloid.

NOW, you can go to google and type in that one word, "porn", then "images" at the top...and see what your five year old child, or grandchild...and certainly what your 12 year old son is watching daily,  just by typing in four letters of the alphabet.

Sigh...

I remember "Deep Throat"! That's the film Nixon had to see twice before he could get it down Pat!

Oh, I how I loved that 40 year old joke...even re-told it myself a couple of times. Won't anymore now that I know it is so well known. :)

Will not give up on the one where Nixon is aghast that someone has written "Fuck You, Nixon" in urine out on the snow covered Rose Garden. Nixon demands an immediate Secret Service investigation. That evening the Service reports to Nixon that they found the culprit but he's not gonna like it. Nixon demands to know. Secret Service says "the VP pissed that message in the snow...but it was in your wife's handwriting....:)

I dunno...I think I'd get more enjoyment out of the engine video. But I'm weird like that.

Shame on you, Craig.

"Wraith"...so I see the new name (new to me, anyway) and I click on his profile and see that he too is a blogger. So I go over, take a look, and, as always, am pleasantly surprised to read the thoughts of someone else. That's one of the bonuses of writing this blog; be introduced to new people and new ideas.

Thanks.

Jerry Carlin said...

Yeah, but "Waith" didn't tell a joke!

A Modest Scribler said...

Jerry, my man, yes he did...he said watching a piston engine would be more enticing.

btw, have you gotten busy on your own blog? Last time I looked you were being lazy. Just because it's not tomato season doesn't mean you don't have to work a little.

Jerry Carlin said...

Thanks for the reminder! I did post the other day but when tomato season is over I slow down. It doesn't help that I get 40 "lookers" and 3 or 4 comments.That is not inspiring me to say much. I have even picked a fight now and again on purpose to rile up a response and still silence. I have a wife for when I want that silent treatment!
