Planning a Vacation? Donít Forget the Porn Stars! (An example fo the fall of a once great country)
CNBC ^ | 12/30/2009 | Staff

Posted on 12/30/2009 7:56:40 AM PST by Red in Blue PA

Film studios are a frequent stop for the typical Los Angeles tourist – and the really lucky ones sometimes get a brief glimpse of favorite star making a movie.

Technically, things aren’t vastly different for the folks who book their trips through Porn Week – though these vacationers catch a whole lot more than a quick glimpse of the actors. Instead, they’re on the set of a porn film – watching, helping behind the scenes or (if they’re brave enough) perhaps joining the cast themselves.

It’s Fantasyland, to be sure – but Mickey and Donald are nowhere in sight.

A porn-themed vacation is hardly everyday, but it’s not as far from the mainstream as you might think. In fact, the U.K.’s Bravo television network has aired a reality show centered around the Porn Week travel company for more than four seasons.

..

Week’s customers – but the financial demographics might surprise you. At roughly $2,000 per trip, the vacations aren’t for the cash poor. And the sets are as likely to be to Prague or Budapest as they are to LA, which boosts airfare costs (which aren’t included in the package). This, says organizers, helps weed out the riff-raff.

“We don’t tend to get the raincoat brigade,” says Gazzman. “We’ve had everyone from airplane pilots to doctors to dentists. … Because of the price point of the business, it attracts a certain level of client. There aren’t many yahoos who turn up on our trips. We can have a fairly sophisticated experience – with glasses of wine on sets and watching the porn happening while people are relaxing and kicking back.”

Hey...you reap what you sow.

Face it...you are totally disgusting for suggesting that this is legitimate. You are a scum for supporting porn as you support the most destructive force to the family in the nation. You support the cheapening of all relationships and more. Yeah...my opinion, but live with it because just like gays DEMANDING that we totally accept them as a natural occurrence so as to legitimize their CHOICE of lifestyle so, too, does the porn lover who thinks I am supposed to adore porn with them. They want justification.

BTW...My last post was NOT directed AT you but to porn lovers and supporters. Sorry I did not put that in that post! I generically replied.

Bovine exhaust. Islam’s war with the West isn’t over the porn industry... these “holy” warriors indulge themselves of every vice before they attack. Heck, they’re view of Heaven is a giant orgy!

No, Islam’s war on the West is about submission. Nothing more. Nothing less.

THERE! fixed it!!


Indeed! Many people believe that “having money” is the ultimate stamp of approval for one’s character.

I guess that we now know why all those Congressional junkets are headed to Prague and Budapest.

No, the war is not specifically over porn, it is just one of the hundreds of reasons that Islam is fighting us. Islam wants to take over to save us all from ourselves and they will kill to accomplish that.

Again, you are wrong. Islam's "holy" mandate is submission. They aren't concerned with salvation of souls.

This was part of a time-share presentation I inadvertently signed up for last year. The brunch was good, but I had to sit through a porn film shoot all afternoon. ;-)

Certainly something Tiger could afford.

Seemed like I heard that before, oh around 1900 Carrie A. Nation about alcohol. Then there was those who made the same statement about gambling, smoking, rock & roll, jazz, etc.

I see what you are saying but I believe your reasoning to be flawed. There is a difference in drinking and getting drunk. A difference that one is enjoyment the other is abuse. One will do little to no harm and one will open up a box of pain that if continued leads to loss and possibly death.

There is no enjoying porn a little bit without consequence. Once taken in it is destructive from even the smallest amounts. It works on the psyche and on your emotions and more. It says that the real life is not satisfying. It takes from you every time.

You are trying to say the two are equal on their face when clearly they are not.

That is a good list of things that the world would be better without. Need to add Islam to the list though.

With all those whores, it would remind me of a visit to our Capitol.

Maybe next time I can direct a short film with Ben Nelson and Mary Landrieu.

So you are saying that all I have to do to break up your marriage and turn you into a child molesting freak is to force you to view porn onetime?

Why a small ban of atheist terrorists could completely destroy the Church in America if they kidnapped the leaders then make them watch “Debbie Does Dallas”

Hmmmmm, lets see, uhhh, NO...I am NOT saying that and your attempt to drive the conversation to that extreme shows a contempt of the debate as if saying something this outrageous justifies Porn.

YOU need to justify porn...NOT me, I need not defend that its bad...YOU need to say why its harmless and good. Maybe I should be extreme and ask when your daughter is to become a porn star and ask you how proud of her you would be. You can't possibly tell me that supporting that notion is in any way defensible. A little arsenic at a time will do nothing more than kill you slowly and this is what porn does to the heart and soul of family and relationships and more.

Porn has been around since the caveman. I expect that those in the know could find examples in the Holy Land during the time of Jesus. I don’t need to justify something that has been a common thread of humanity for 4000 years plus.

As long as there is masturbation there will be porn either underground or in the open. So you believe there shouldn’t be masturbation?

Ohh...I see, that justifies it all doesn't it? I mean since its, you know, been around it must be okay. And its "common" in our human thread. I see, so making the places that sell it hide is not fair right? Maybe we should have it in grade school or at least high school...am I right? After all its a "common thread of humanity" according to you.

As long as there is masturbation there will be porn either underground or in the open. So you believe there shouldn’t be masturbation? Oh...thy only go together? And this is relevant how? people do so without porn...what in the world does this question have to do with the value discussion and debate as to the merits of porn? JUSTIFY PORN to us...tell us how it is GOOD. Maybe you ca tell us how it supports the family and does no harm to marriage or how the mockery of family in so much of porn is actually a good thing.

So how is porn good? Ok the Gonorrhea rate peaked in 1978 and the syphilis rate in 1946. There has been a slight rise since 2000 but more likely the rise of illegal immigration than internet porn. I remember reading elsewhere where sexual assaults and other sex related crimes are down. So perhaps people getting themselves off by viewing porn has reduced all that. There is much more viewing of porn by the United States military over in the battle zone than in previous wars yet sexual assaults and rapes is rare.

As for marriage, I remember years ago at a National Guard unit I was in most of the old timers would gather together after drill and watch porn and drink some beer. About all of them was happily married for years and will be until they die. I am thinking of all the troubled marriages I have known and I can’t think of porn being the cause of the problem for any. I am sure there is a few but there was much bigger issues for most couples than porn. Frankly I find it pitiful these churches who preach over and over about porn yet most of their congregation is divorced or having problems because they ignore bigger issues. In fact in my personal opinion the Churches has really screwed the pooch about the sanity of marriage.

Other than that, one man’s porn might be another man’s art.
