Does A Bailout for the Porn Industry Mean A Happier America?

Should we bail out pornography?

Should we bail out pornography?

By Boomeryearbook.com

As you’ve probably heard, Larry Flynt of Hustler Magazine and Joe Francis of Girls Gone Wild, on behalf of the porn industry are requesting a $5 billion bailout plan. They claim that they are just as entitled as the Big Three (car companies) and Wall Street stating that supporting the porn industry will go a long way in improving the depressive attitudes of the American people. Flynt said in a statement to the media that Americans were too depressed to have sex and that this was unhealthy for the nation. He believes that a bailout plan for the porn industry would help to revive the nation’s libido. This begs the question then, is a bailout plan for the porn industry going too far?

It is obvious that Flynt and Francis believe that the porn industry has a lot to do with the American’s choice of whether or not to have sex. This may come as a surprise to them, but Americans were having sex long before watching porn or using sex toys became as prevalent as they are today. To claim that assisting the porn industry would increase the amount of sex that people are having is a bit ridiculous. Despite the numerous blackberries, i-phones and HD-TVs we now have, it has not affected our ability to use our imaginations on an object we lust. Porn really only plays a supplemental role in our sex lives. When it comes down to it, porn plays a bigger role in masturbation than in actual sexual intercourse. Are Larry and Joe telling us that we need to masturbate in order to be happy? If that’s what they’re selling, they’ll need more than luck to convince the government to take them seriously.

The $5billion being requested may not be entirely necessary either. Joe Francis said in an interview with TMZ that the request was merely a precautionary measure as the industry has not hit rock bottom as yet. Declines, however, are being seen in the decreasing number of DVDs being sold and the increasing amount of persons seeking free and pirated porn on the internet. Now really, whether you’re a fan of porn or not, do you want to see your government turn over money to help preserve the local sex shop and the Ecstasy channel?

The pornography industry is a self-contained, private industry that produces no real benefit for the general American economy. They defend their right to be bailed out on the claim that more porn would make Americans happier and healthier. In a time of serious economic depression, do you have space in your budget for porn subscriptions and sex toys? Are you convinced that more porn is what will help you out of your depression because your mortgage is owed and your credit card is overdrawn?

A bailout for porn will help no one but those in the porn industry which accounts for a measly minority of the American population. Imagine, you can’t send your kid to college or support your 401K plan but you can rest easy knowing that when you get home, Playboy will be there waiting on you. Really now, Messrs. Flynt and Francis?!!

Dear Boomer. Is your sex life normal?

Do you ever find yourself wondering if your sex life is normal? Do you equate frequency with normalcy? Do you compare your sex life with your friends’? If yes don’t worry you are not alone! A lot us sometimes fret needlessly about our sex-lives and sex-drives, thanks to the numerous myths about sex. The following are some of the most common ones;

Myth- Going straight to Sleep after a romantic dinner is not normal.

Fact- It is in fact perfectly normal to want to sleep after a fulfilling meal. Good food can in fact kill your sex-drive and make you sleepy. It’s actually better to have sex before you set out for a romantic meal!

Myth- It’s not normal if you (women) don’t have an orgasm during intercourse.

Fact- What’s more important than an orgasm is how much pleasure you give each other? You may have enjoyed the fore-play but may still not have an orgasm, don’t worry, its normal! In fact according to some recent research studies most women don’t have an orgasm during intercourse, but it doesn’t mean they don’t enjoy it!

Myth- Men always want sex.

Fact- Completely untrue! Just like women men may not always be in the mood to have sex. In fact this myth is responsible for men’s performance anxiety and sometimes erection trouble as well. It’s because men believe that it’s normal to always want sex and they worry about their being normal, when they don’t want sex!

Myth- It’s not normal to be interested in sex after a certain age.

Fact- False again! It’s biologically and psychologically normal to be interested in sex till the end of your life!

Myth: It’s normal for women to lose their sex-drive after menopause.

Fact- The truth is far from it! Many women actually enjoy sex more after menopause since they no longer have to worry about getting pregnant. Also thanks to hormone replacement therapy (HRT) many women aren’t plagued with the low sex drive and vaginal dryness often associated with menopause.

Myth- You must have sex at least 3 times a week.

Fact- As long as you are both satisfied with the frequency, even if you have sex once in two weeks, it’s normal! Don’t put too much stress on quantity as long as you are both happy with your sex life. If you are not then you will have to talk it out with your partner and figure out the reason for his/her lack of interest.

Finally, good sex is what makes you and your partner happy, everything else is a myth!

Sex is one of best mood elevators in the world; however its effectiveness depends on how creatively it’s used! If you’ve not been able to enjoy sex of late or your sex life has turned bland and boring, the following tips may be able help you add oodles of spice to it-

Striptease or lap dance- You don’t need to be a great dancer to be able to strip! There are lots of slow sensuous tracks you can use for your private performance, all that you need to do is to sway to the music and take off your clothes teasingly! A loose man’s shirt, hot pants, a sexy bra-top and a neck-tie tied loosely around your neck, will get your partner in the mood even before you start. If you have a full length mirror in your room, strip in front of it, it will be a great turn on for you as well.

If you are too shy to strip, do a little lap dance for your boyfriend/husband in your sexiest lingerie. It’s easier than stripping and a few lap dance performances will give you the confidence to go for a full fledged stripping act!

Sex toys – Sex toys can add excitement to a boring sex life! If you are too shy to visit a toy store buy online. There’s a large variety of dildos, vibrators and gels, oils etc which can help you rekindle the embers of passion!

Edible lingerie- Sexy lingerie is great, but edible lingerie is even better for a steamy session in bed! It’ll be like the ultimate desert after a romantic dinner. Edible lingerie is available in a variety of flavors at most adult stores. Feeling him lick your clothes off will be the ultimate turn on for you and making your edible underclothes disappear will be a delight for all his senses!

Men’s edible underwear is also available; you can sweeten up your sex life by gifting one to your husband or boyfriend.

Strip poker or strip scrabble- Put conditions on taking your clothes off! A game of strip-poker or strip “anything”, adds the element of challenge to your sex life. When you take off every garment teasingly, seeing you without your clothes becomes a “prize” instead of something easily gotten. You can even add penalties for the loser, like being your “slave” for the night or acting out your fantasy. The best part of the game is that loser enjoys losing as much as the winner enjoys winning!

Erotic literature- Read erotic literature to each other; it won’t put you to sleep like bed-time stories but will get you into the mood for something much more pleasurable!

Try different positions- There are at least 100 known positions and you couldn’t have tried all of them, right? Try them now and get your sex life back on track. You can buy an instructional video or a manual and learn about new positions. Watching the video or reading the manual together will help you get rid of your own inhibitions as well.

Passionate sex fills your relationship with beautiful colors of romance! All you need to do to ensure that these colors never fade is not to let routine and boredom extinguish the fires of passion.

Your bed-room is the place where you and your partner/spouse can share intimate moments. It stands witness to your nights of unbridled passion. Yet sometimes it’s the bedroom which starts playing the biggest spoil sport in your love-making. The atmosphere of your bed-room can kill your mood and desire to make love. Ever noticed how a hotel room seems to get you into the mood, while your bedroom does nothing of that sort? So how can you make your bedroom sex-friendly? The following tips may help:

*Treat your bedroom like a sacred space! That means no TV, no laptops, no computers and no work related print-outs or files! Your bed-room should be your sanctuary, a personal space meant just for the two of you.

*Make your bedroom clutter free! A cluttered and dirty bed-room is not only distracting but will also add to your stress levels, especially if you are a woman. A clean neat bed-room is more sex-friendly than a bedroom which has a thousand useless things lying about.

*Create a sensual atmosphere- Satin bed-sheets, colorful drapes and dim lights will speak to your mind in the language it understands;“it’s time to make love!” Aromatic Candles with essential oils like sandalwood and patchouli act as aphrodisiacs which can enhance your love-making experience.

*Mirrors- If you have space get a mirror installed right in front of your bed. Seeing yourself making love to your partner is a great turn on. Moreover mirrors add to an element of romance in the bedroom.
