Yeah, I had to read it twice, too!
It seems that our esteemed congress is about to get a visit from the sex industry and their hand is held out, just like the auto makers before them.
According to CNN, the spokesman for Larry Flint, the mastermind of Hustler, said:
“The take here is that everyone and their mother want to be bailed out from the banks to the big three…The porn industry has been hurt by the downturn like everyone else and they are going to ask for the $5 billion. Is it the most serious thing in the world? Is it going to make the lives of Americans better if it happens? It is not for them to determine.”
Well, I like smut as much as the next person, but I don’t think we’re in danger of losing the porn industry due to the economy. People will always support the industry. That’s just the way it is. Even the beggers agree, saying “DVD sales have slipped over the past year, but Web traffic has continued to grow.”
Don’t worry, your favorite porn stars aren’t going anywhere. They’re just seeing the cutbacks that people are making in their own lives, the way that they have in all the other industries.
