in reply to Would you work at a porn company?

There was a news segment recently on one of the national TV networks about the cable companies who are making "big money" with "porn on demand"; while at the same time being helped and sponsored by "right wing government" bureaucrats.

Face it, America is 2-faced about sex...they decry it in public, but behind close doors.....ooh la la. Maybe it's part of the "it's more fun if it's dirty and wrong " conciousness.

I like to meditate sometimes on "what kind of world would it be if there was no sex". From that perspective, the wild views people have about sexual morality looks insane. I say legalize it all, and people will lose their fascination with it.

So I would say, do what the cable companies do....work with the porn industry and make your money, and when people ask you about it, tell them how you detest it. :-)

    Well said! I learned that the same had happended during the Victorian times in England.

    Besides, if the site doesn't do spanking, it should be the same as working in any other shamefully accepted job by our actual society:

    • * I saw America's Scientists page defending Reagan's world's armament theory as an argument to destroy poor countries.
    • * Big software companies talking evil ideas about OpenSource and Free OSs.
    • * Great media companies like Forbes, implanting dangerous spyware in every visitor's browser.

    I won't justify our evil instincs, but I know that I am having to live with all these for my lifetime. Because everybody is making profit on the suffering of others or on the results of foolish restrictive laws...

      Because everybody is making profit on the suffering of others or on the results of foolish restrictive laws...

      That's the reason. If you make something "illegal( or immoral)" then you can make enormous profits off of it. If you really want to stop people from wanting porn, just flood them with images of "real" naked people. There is nothing like a nudist colony to "turn you off". :-) But they are selling an "illusory image" in the porn world, of beautiful,lean, airbrushed bodies, which you would never see in reality. But in order for that illusion to be effective, it has to be made shameful, so no one publicly talks about it, and keeps it locked up in their own private fantasies. It's the perfect situation for "mind control"...and just look how it is used. Show a beer commercial to guys, with a couple of topless buleimic women in it, and you have instant "customer gratification". Now this wouldn't happen, if the men were flooded with actual images of real topless women, of all ages. And of course, it goes the other way, the average skinny legged, pot-bellied man is not your typical woman's fantasy.

      This society is going to have a hard time breaking out of this cycle, because the women know that they control men only by sex, so even though they espouse feminist ideals, they still use make up and wear suggestive clothing. The whole marriage game is based on this.
