US porn industry seeks multi-billion dollar bailout

Porn baron Larry Flynt is seeking a $5 billion bailout from Washington to rejuvenate the industry, which he says is suffering because of the economic downturn.

The Hustler magazine founder has teamed up with fellow adult entertainment mogul Joe Francis, creator of the Girls Gone Wild video series, to approach Congress for the same kind of financial assistance recently approved for car manufacturers.

The pair have asked the 111th Congress, which convened on Tuesday with the economy at the top of its agenda, "to rejuvenate the sexual appetite of America" with a bailout.

"Congress seems willing to help shore up our nation's most important businesses, (and) we feel we deserve the same consideration," Francis said in a statement.

"In difficult economic times, Americans turn to entertainment for relief. More and more, the kind of entertainment they turn to is adult entertainment."

"The take here is that everyone and their mother want to be bailed out from the banks to the big three," Owen Moogan, a spokesman for Flynt, told CNN.

"The porn industry has been hurt by the downturn like everyone else and they are going to ask for the $5 billion. Is it the most serious thing in the world? Is it going to make the lives of Americans better if it happens? It is not for them to determine."

In an interview with entertainment news website TMZ, Francis admitted the move was more of a "precautionary measure" than an emergency rescue, "but as long as the government is handing out money, we want to be there to take it."

The pair acknowledge that although DVD sales and rentals have dropped 22 per cent over the past year, online traffic has continued to grow.

"The 13-billion-dollar industry is in no fear of collapse," they say. "But why take chances?" Francis, who was last year freed from almost a year in jail after pleading no contest to child abuse and prostitution charges in a plea deal, told CNN they planned to deliver the request "to our congressmen and (Secretary of the Treasury Henry) Paulson" by the end of Wednesday.

"With all this economic misery and people losing all that money, sex is the farthest thing from their mind," Flynt said in a statement. People were "too depressed to be sexually active", which was "very unhealthy as a nation. Americans can do without cars and such, but they cannot do without sex." He said the only way Congress could "rejuvenate" America's sexual appetite was "by supporting the adult industry and doing it quickly." There was no response from Congress to the request.

I urge you. Call your congressperson and implore them to support the US porn bailout!

Flynt is a moderately good troll and exceptional self promoter. One of his better efforts.

Yep. Just think if the pr0n industry goes bankrupt: all their suppliers will go out of business--K.Y., Tr0j4n, clinics, printing presses. Dealerships will go out of business, too. And nobody will buy
pr0n DVD's and Hustler unless the Guhment backs up their warranties.

Yes. We must bail out the pr0n industry or else the cascading effect will hurtle us into another Dark Ages.

Five BILLION!? And all the counties around here cannot afford to buy salt for the fucking roads this winter and these dickwadz want five BILLION?

My hunch tells me that internet pr0n is doing fine, but that people who make a living printing things, selling DVD's, etc are on the ropes. So my theory is this: if you're Larry Flint of Hugh Heffner, you're in trouble. If you're Bang Bros., then you're doing fine.

Opinions about my stupid opinions are welcome.

Of course this is self promotion for him and his business but for atleast a second lets take this seriously. Social networking is now more popular then internet porn. porn magazines are losing popularity and porno versions of you tube are topping up. The porn industry could be in trouble as casual beaters get all there porn for free over the interwebs. Be afraid!

Besides I feel like tastes in porn are so much more sophisticated now. Repetitous shots of bored blondes with implants and dildoes doesn't cut it anymore. Now you need to watch some skinny Eastern European deflowered by Cro Cop while veins bulge in her temple for it to count.

Oh jeez, it's pretty obvious Congress will drop this like a hot rock. Especially after this line: "to rejuvenate the sexual appetite of America"

Any member of Congress who supports sexual appetite will no doubt we burnt at the steak. America hates sex.

Well, I doubt America hates sex, just look at the teen pregnancy rates. I think they only hate to talk about it. Fucking religion and all that BS fucking hypocrisy.
