who’s seen Mike Tyson fight is aware of the benefits a
violent childhood can bring. You don’t have to condone
kids getting beat up every day to enjoy seeing him in the ring.
You don’t want your children to follow the same path,
but as far as Tyson’s shitty life goes, there’s
no better job. Not just anybody can step in the ring. Athletic
commissions regulate boxing licenses and make sure things don’t
get too gory. Tyson himself had his license rescinded in 1997
after biting off his opponent’s ear. This is the way it
should be. Boxing is a violent sport that can do serious, permanent
damage. I have never been the same after challenging a professional
fighter to a fight. I didn’t have the experience to handle
the guy and ended up in the hospital with cerebral contusions.
I’ll never do that again.
is exactly the same. I love watching porn stars like Ava Devine
get violated, but I’m well aware the odds of her having
been sexual abused as a child are about 99.99 percent. You don’t
have to condone sexual abuse to watch porn. It’s a great
job for someone who is dumb, unambitious and devoid of sexuality.
In fact, the only way you can do sex work (as naïve feminists
like to call it) is to have no sex left in you. Some perverted
uncle or disgusting friend of the family robs a girl of her
most intimate and valuable asset and it’s like a light
switch goes off. Now they can have sex with anyone because they’re
numb. I’ve talked to a lot of strippers and prostitutes
about this phenomenon and have yet to meet one who denied the
vast majority of people who have sex for money are abuse victims.
I dated for a while made it all too clear. “Sex isn’t
the same thing to me as it is to you,” she said. “To
me it’s like playing soccer or swimming.” I spent
about half the relationship thinking of all the different ways
I was going to kill her dad for what he did to her. This obsession
eventually ended the relationship.
is no athletic commission to regulate who goes into porn and
ensure no fragile eggs get trampled. The very nature of the
business has always kept the innocent away. Until now. Until
hipster porn: Also called alt porn, it’s a genre of pornography
that is mostly pictures on websites but also includes actual
pornographic videos. Hipster porn stars tend to be middle-class
punk girls who come from pretty stable backgrounds and have
been convinced what they’re doing isn’t porn at
all and therefore doesn’t deserve a lot of money. These
girls haven’t been molested as kids and are in way over
sexist plague began with Scene Queens -- Young, punk girls on
social networks who put up titillating pictures of themselves
for free. They get thousands of friends and often correspond
with them online. I’d never allow my daughter to do this,
but it’s not the end of the world. I don’t even
think I’d call it misogynist. Unfortunately, once this
became cool, a new wave of pornography took hold. Websites like
Suicide Girls (the Playboy of the genre) and Burning
Angel (the very NSFW version) popped up and convinced even more
girls it was hip to pose nude for next to nothing. They weren’t
porn stars, they were pin-ups, and the whole thing was lumped
in with Roller Derby and Burlesque as a fun and empowering way
to show your Girl Power. Pornographic video jumped on the bandwagon
and guys like Eon McKai (named after the singer of a punk band
from the 80s) has convinced a whole new generation of girls
porn isn’t porn. But it is porn. And porn is supposed
to pay. Real porn stars hate hipster porn because they see it
as rich kids devaluing the sex dollar for laughs. You’re
not supposed to get $100 to have sex on camera. You’re
supposed to get $1,500. These girls are stepping into the ring
with Mike Tyson and getting knocked out for free again and again.
the religious right rails against pornography and portrays it
as male predators taking advantage of vulnerable women, I roll
my eyes. Porn is simply victims of abuse making the best of
a terrible situation. Porn producers aren’t predators.
They’re entrepreneurs. However, Pat Robertson is correct
when it comes to hipster porn. The men who make money off this
new breed of porn star are exactly the predators the religious
right say they are.
my twenties, I lived with two punk chicks who were lazy and
wanted a job where they didn’t have to leave the house.
They chose phone sex. Neither of these girls were molested as
kids and despite the tattoos and pink hair, ultimately just
wanted a nice boyfriend whom they would eventually marry and
make babies with. Guess what happened. The job rotted them.
I would come home after a hard day’s work and feel glares
burning through the back of my head. I would turn around and
find them staring at me like I habitually raped them both. “That
job made me hate men,” one of them admitted to me years
after quitting. “It messes with your head.” Their
boss eventually convinced one of them to go to hotels and urinate
on perverts for money. She recently described the experience
as ‘damaging’ -- though she’d never have admitted
it back then.
always said this kind of pornography is not cool, but it’s
hard to prove something is damaging in the long run when it’s
only been around for a few years. A few months ago, I was interviewed
at dinner along with some other media types including a blogger/hipster
porn star who called herself Baby Sinead. She told me her parents
were totally cool with her doing pornography. I did my best
to explain to her that her sexuality is actually very sacred
and not something to be tossed around willy nilly. That’s
why people pay so much for it. It has value. Lawsuits that include
violating a woman’s chastity are a very big deal because
the courts understand a woman unanimously seen as a slut is
in for a lonely life. Now, if someone already took your chastity
and threw it in the garbage, selling it isn’t such a big
deal. She doesn’t fall into that category but I couldn’t
convince her it mattered. “Take what’s left of your
innocence and get out while you can,” I pleaded with her.
“This job will ruin your life.” The eponymous Baby
looked at me like I just told her Dick Cheney is sexy. In about
ten years, when she’s a lonely cougar, she’ll realize
I was right but by then it will be too late.
