Larry Flynt, publisher of Hustler magazine, and Girls Gone Wild CEO Joe Francis say it does.
Flynt and Francis announced that they will be asking Congress for $5 billion in federal bailout funds. Because the porn industry is in the same financial crapper as the Big 3 auto makers and the banks? No. It’s not the industry that needs the bailout, they say, its the sex lives of Americans:
With all this economic misery and people losing all that money, sex is the farthest thing from their mind. It’s time for congress to rejuvenate the sexual appetite of America. The only way they can do this is by supporting the adult industry and doing it quickly.
Is more porn for all the answer to America’s economic woes? Maybe not. But really, at least this way, when we pony up bailout money we’ll be getting screwed in a good way.
