Who Likes Pie? Some Porn Industry Stats

2006 Worldwide Pornography Revenues

The first pie chart breaks down what countries spend the most on porn and the second who creates the most pornographic websites. Bottom line: The more sexually repressed the country, the more they buy and the less they make. Time for them to invest in pie.

"Sexpot of the Week" -- Angeline Jolie

Ok so it's not original to give Angelina Jolie a sexy award, but the "Sexpot of the Week" is supposed to be someone relevant who is not ultra famous or someone ultra famous who has done something relevant in the past week. Since it's been a while since Jolie has graced us with her presence in a film and "Salt" was just released, the choice seems justified. And come on, she's fucking hot.

Sex is Not Recession Proof

So I stumbled upon this "They Shoot Porn Stars Don't They?" website on a whim. Written and photographed by Susannah Breslin, it is a photo essay that explores the recession's affect on the porn business. The blatant abuse of women in the memoir is infuriating, but I am happy she includes it. It reveals the abrasiveness of the not so high end sector of the business instead of glorifying the Jenna Jameson millionaire ideal. It's well written and relatively short so it's great for someone with a short attention span (like yours truly). Give it a go.

In Crazy Bitch News: Woman Admits to Smothering Newborns

Douai, France (CNN) -- "French prosecutors said Thursday they charged a woman with murder after she admitted giving birth to and smothering eight babies over a 17-year period in northern France.

The woman, Dominique Cottrez, said she hid the pregnancies and deaths from her husband, who said he had no idea what she had done, prosecutor Eric Vaillant told reporters. Cottrez is overweight and was able to conceal the pregnancies, he said.

Cottrez told investigators the reason she killed the babies was that she did not want to have any more children and did not want to see doctors for contraceptives, Vaillant said..."

And I Quote...

"Greed: A word commonly used by liberals, low achievers, anti-capitalists and society's losers to denigrate, shame and discredit those who have acquired superior job skills and decision-making capabilities..."--Neal Boortz (radio host, Republican, and asshole).

News Spotlight: Warren Jeffs

Polygamous sect leader Warren S. Jeffs of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was ordered a new trial today in the rape of a 14 year old girl. There's something naturally annoying about people getting away with crimes because of loopholes and courtroom mistakes. When it's something as serious as the rape of a child, it is infuriating. In this particular case, Jeffs will be held anyway because of warrants for his arrest in other sexual assault charges, but what about the many times the loophole sets the criminal free for good? Let's get it together American legal system. Click here to read The New York Times article.
