Well, you live in the right area for it. :pop:

I 'get' why that industry exists. I also undertand why one would want to purchase/view that material. What I don't get is why anyone would be attracted to the stars/individuals that actually live that lifestyle.

Charlie Sheen is a perfect example. He could have his pick of thousands of women, yet he choose(chooses?) to date adult film "actresses".

Like I said, I don't get it.

There was a higher than normal amount of profile pictures being changed over the last week. (The RED = sign)

I think the OP is trying to equate Profile Picture changes to Support of Equal Rights for Gay Marriage.

OP? Care to clarify?

Maybe it wasn't about equality after all. Maybe it was just about shutting you up.

Well it failed then, didn't it, because now I'm responding to people who have no clue what I'm talking about and then need to further explain myself.

Like I said, I don't get it.

About 10 years ago, I went to the Adultcon show here in L.A. For about five minutes it was a total snicker-fest, like when you're in 5th grade and one of your buddies says a word that can be remotely connected to sex. Then it dawned on me that all the starlets that were there to sign stuff and pose for fan pics had their videos playing on TVs behind them in their booths. After that, it was just.... awkward.

I'm personally über-fascinated by pr0n stars. Like anthropologically speaking. I will never pass up the opportunity to watch a documentary on the subject.

I wonder if it’s a dying profession. Not in the sense that porn will go away—it obviously never will. I’m referring to the well-known-and-promoted porn “star.” These days, when anyone with a digital video recorder and an internet connection can make their own porn, it seems to me that the days of big-name actresses are going out.

For example, back when I was in high school and college (and computers were connected by 2400-baud modems), I will admit that I knew the names of a number of the most popular porn stars, and I could recognize them by picture. If you wanted to see their movies, you had to rent or buy VHS tapes. Today, I’m not sure I could name anyone active in the porn world, and buying porn seems like a quaint concept. Internet killed the (porn) video star?

A prominent Democratic state senator and a Republican city councilman from Queens were arrested Tuesday in an alleged plot to get the senator onto the New York City mayoral ballot by paying off GOP county chairmen, authorities said.

Absolute **** insanity. What a stupid, stupid administration.

“If you were going to tell people in low-income and moderate-income communities and communities of color there was a housing recovery, they would look at you as if you had two heads,” said John Taylor, president of the National Community Reinvestment Coalition, a nonprofit housing organization. “It is very difficult for people of low and moderate incomes to refinance or buy homes.”


Mmhmm.....mmhmm.

Since when is owning a frigging home a right in the United States? I am sick and tired of it being framed that way constantly. IT'S NOT A RIGHT, IT'S A PRIVILEGE. A privilege you earn. Or else you end up with neighborhoods like part of mine, where ghetto/white trash homeowners who are probably 3/4 of the way to foreclosure completely trash the area around their house because they have zero pride in it, because they didn't work for it.

We all know what the definition of insanity is....here you are
