The porn industry is hurting! With less money to waste, Americans are being forced to look at free Internet porn or seek meaningful relationships. And now, porn industry bigwigs have asked Congress for the same ride given to car manufacturers.
If they're going to make this work, Hustler magazine founder Larry Flynt and porn mogul Joe Francis really need to get their stories straight. Francis sees the bailout as necessary to meet the increasing demand for porn. He said, "In difficult economic times, Americans turn to entertainment for relief. More and more, the kind of entertainment they turn to is adult entertainment."
Yet Flynt believes it's necessary to stimulate (sorry!) America's sexual appetite. "With all this economic misery and people losing money, sex is the farthest thing from their mind."
Rest assured, bailout or no bailout, the industry is not at risk of collapsing. "But as long as the government is handing out money," Francis said, "we want to be there to take it."
Meanwhile, they await Congress's response.
