Much to Mrs. ’Puter’s relief. It seems that the porn industry’s tidal wave of cash first cresting with the advent of the VCR has finally started ebbing. So we likely won’t see ’Puter’s Vividland or the Penthouse Hotel & Casino on the Strip. The culprit? That series of tubes. Confucius says: couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people. Here are some quotes the Volgi particularly enjoyed:
So every year that goes by now, there are new people – especially younger people – watching adult content who think that porn is free. And it’s not good.
People start to buzz, ’Tubes are killing us – where can I get a good script?’
Your Volgi is high on Schadenfreude. While pornography is one of the principle drivers of internet technology (along with geekdom), it’d be terrific for it to deal a death blow to one of the most despicable (if insanely profitable) industries out there and return sleaze to the hazy demimonde it once occupied, even if the universal-availability horse has long bolted the barn. Maybe at least it’ll get hotels out the vice business.
Don’t ask impertinent questions like that jackass Adept Lu.
