View Full Version : Movies and TV Porn Kings to D.C. - Help Us Through Hard Times -$5B Porn Bailout!?

01-07-2009, 04:01 PM

Joe Francis and Larry Flynt claim the economy has made America's sexual appetite go limp, so they're going to the one place where sex is always rampant -- Congress.

Flynt (the "Hustler" guy) and Francis (the "Girls Gone Wild" dude) are asking the government for a $5 billion bailout, claiming the adult entertainment industry has taken a huge shot to the face because of the downturn -- citing the fact that XXX DVD sales are down 22% from a year ago.

"With all this economic misery and people losing all that money, sex is the farthest thing from their mind," Flynt says. "It's time for Congress to rejuvenate the sexual appetite of America."

Francis sees his industry like the big three automakers, only BIGGER: "Congress seems willing to help shore up our nation's most important businesses; we feel we deserve the same consideration."

Francis says he's going to D.C. to personally make the pitch. Sounds like someone has a bone to pick.

That'll go over big, I'm sure.

I disagree with the idea that the recession/depression causes the lack of sales, though. I remember my biggest interest in porn came during the unhappiest period of my life. Little monkey-spanking escapism.

A huge shot to the face.

No pun intended.

Who buys porn DVDs? Seriously? Who pays for porn website subscriptions? Seriously? When you have all of the free alternatives... looks to me like a dying industry.
