- It's strange when you see the same naked photo so many times that it stops registering as "naked". No titilation or repulsion or reaction to nudity at all. I might as well be looking at a photo of a shoe. I could say that this is because I'm a chick, but I don't think so. Chicks are just as susceptible to "boobies!" reactions as any guy. I think this is where the objectification thing goes from annoying to sad. I wonder if someone like Jenna Jamison ever regrets the fact that most of the American above-18 world knows exactly what she looks like naked and fucking. I mean... does she date? Is she married? How can you get excited about the mystery of a woman that has *record breaking* numbers of wank fans? It's fine that she's a porn star. She makes a lot of money without doing much more than getting fake tits, fake lips, fake tans, fake hair colors, fake nails, and getting fucked a lot on film for strangers to watch. I'm sure that's very empowering for a certain stripe of woman.
But could you see ever actually *wanting* to date Jenna Jamison... the real one... the real person who blows and fucks for a living? Like, really? Forming a strong, healthy relationship with someone whos job it is to fuck hung guys on camera. Someone who has formed a porn empire on the basis of her own huge fake tits. I just don't see it.

Actually, if I remember right, Jenna is married but her husband does porn as well.
And hi there, found you through Kaeren and added you to my friends list.

Yeah, I thought that myself. It was just a "well known example" type thing.

I've been in Virginia Beach for almost three weeks. I just moved here so I am working on finding my way around and finding a job.

Merlin's secondary partner likes to watch, don't ask me why, dating shows. So, one evening they're sitting and watching, and the show people put together a porn actress and a devout Christian "waiting for marriage" type guy. They apparently both had a nice evening.

As for me... hell, I dunno. I suspect that I'd be more annoyed by porn-star tits in person than anything else.

The concept of my partner's body being on display for anyone and everyone (or worse, the concept of my partner actually having sex with someone else, whether I am there or not) is so horrendous and disgusting to me that I cannot describe.

I'm through and through a monogamy type. If I don't feel fulfilled or start feeling like maybe I want another person, I just go get that other person and drop the first one. You already know the "polyamory" thing squicks me. It's not just that it's not for me, I have a hard time believing that it is even possible to be in love with more than one person at a time. You can *like* people, but that's not love. Which leads me to believe that people who think that you can be in love with more than one person at a time are broken and fooling themselves. Which... well... it what we all do to certain degrees, really. But when you need to work that HARD at just keeping everyone's natural jealousies in tack... something can't be right, right?

And there are a lot of people who just like fucking lots of other people while they get to retain the comfort and security of a constant, always supportive partner. It's the best of both. Being single and fucking whoever on a whim AND having a long term with someone who's supposed to love you regardless.

Raaaaaaaaaaaambling.

Well, then, I don't think you should date any porn stars.

That said... the other thing about porn stars, that probably makes them mostly non-dating material... by all accounts, they're all utterly insane. Not the vaguely-fun uninhibited kind of insane, but the dead serious majorly-fucked-up sexually-and-otherwise-abused-as-kids kind. Broken enough that, well, drowning them might be the kindest thing in some cases. Which brings up the question of whether pornography is all that "victimless" in the first place.

I've often seen that to be the case with just about anyone involved in the sex industry, stripping included. There are some people who will *swear* that they are healthy, well-adjusted people who have no deep seated trauma and they just enjoy getting naked in front of people. But all the ones I've known who've claimed that have been lying. Mostly to themselves.

More and more, I see porn as a freakshow. You can tell the measure of a society on how they treat their animals. But I think you can also tell their glee in the destruction of others by how well their porn sells.

I take it you don't watch Sportsnight (or whatever that comedy was) -- because there was a storyline about this exact thing.

My mom used to watch that show. At least it wasn't your usual sit-com but it just tried WAY too hard.

The woman he dated was a hooker, though, not a porn star or just a chick who liked to be nude for anonymous strangers. In our current cultural climate aren't hookers just poor/misguided women to be saved and porn starts are enterprising business women who are just attaining their goals. I keep seeing all this crap about the sex industry being "feminist".

And if I remember, he ended up breaking up with her becuase he just couldn't take the concept that something as intimate as the sex that could happen between the two of them was just.. all in a day's work for her.
