porn

yeah, I know it’s a pretty cheap ploy to invoke a four letter word but this site is about what I come across in trying to entertain myself.

So I was culling through all the stuff I read over the last week and realized that I had read three completely different articles referring to porn.

So to clarify a little, porn is so not my thing.  Maybe it’s cuz I’m a girl, I don’t know, but it ain’t my cup of tea.  I can understand why people like it, obviously people like it, but for me this is not something I’m generally thinking about during my day.  So it was kinda different for me to be reading three articles related to porn in as many days.  Was there some porn-tastrophe in the news?  No.  The articles, on three different websites, BBCnews, SwissMiss, and Gizmodo, and were all about different things.

The first, on BBC, was about the porn industry’s
new domain that they will have all to themselves, .XXX (image courtesy of BBC, I don’t dare try to search for one).  It’s showing how the porn industry is truly integrated into the global society.  Personally I think that this is probably a good thing, especially if you could set your search engine to exclude said domain.  No more explicit sites popping up when you put in something that should be harmless like ‘black stallion’ or ‘closed fist’.

The other post I was reading as actually on Gizmodo and was about the porn industry ditching Adobe’s Flash in favor of HTML5.  I immediately flashed to the scene in Tropic Thunder where Jay Baruchel’s character, Sandusky (far left in photo) explains how the porn industry would determine whether we end up with BluRay or HDDVD.  And here they are again casting the swing vote so to speak.  It’s quite probable that this will be the end of flash as we currently know it.

The final article was from one of my favorite blogs SwissMiss (repost from one of her many sources) about a site called BookShelfPorn.  How can you not click on that?  being a book addict couldn’t help but click through the archives of some truly incredible images.

Now this is my kind of porn, though I’m not sure what seeing these in person would be in porn terms.  A live show?  Whatever, it doesn’t matter.  But I guess I’ll have to resign myself to porn, even if it’s just the word, being a part of my life.
