  • Forget California running out of money: Porn Industry in trouble!

    Now the U.S. porn industry seeks $5 billion bailout

    UK Daily Mail
    Thursday, Jan 8, 2008

    After the banks and the cars, now the U.S. porn industry has gone cap in hand to Washington seeking a multi-billion dollar bailout.

    American commentators did not know whether to laugh or cry yesterday at the news that the economic downturn ‘has made America’s appetite for sex go limp’.

    The statement came from Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt and ‘Girls Gone Wild’ creator Joe Francis yesterday.

    In a statement, Larry Flynt said that the economic downturn has been mirrored by a sexual downturn. ‘Americans can do without cars and such but they cannot do without sex,’ he said, adding that this was very ‘unhealthy’.


    Entertainment website TMZ.com reported that adult movie DVD sales have plummeted 22 per cent in one year.
    And with all the free competition available, it appears the porn industry is not as recession proof as first thought.

    TMZ said Joe Francis, hounded by legal troubles, plans to go to Congress to ask for his own stimulus package.

    ‘Francis sees his industry like the big three automakers, only BIGGER,’ the website claimed. ‘Sounds like someone has a bone to pick.’

    American commentators reacted in disbelief.

        Brosia, It sounds like poor ol' Larry Flint needs to man up (so to speak,) take his lumps on the chin (whoops!) and pull himself up by his strap-ons--er, I mean, bootstraps!

        :D

        Hey, who bailed out the author of The Song of Solomon? Where was The Marquis De Sade's grant from The National Endowment for the Arts? Where's the government cheese for Tom Jones or Moll Flanders?

        Why, back before spoiled snotnoses like Larry Flint, porn stars had to walk to the studio naked in 10 feet of snow and uphill both ways and, 'aye Gawd, they liked it! What makes him so privileged as to think he deserves a free sympathy lay at the expense of Lady Liberty? And what makes him think that Uncle Sam won't be watching him while he works? How creepy! I shudder to think!
