Moral Hazard? Nailin' Palin? Hustler´s Larry Flynt Urges Government Bailout of Adult Industry


Well, dear readers, hahahah!!!! This is the original text of a release by Larry Flynt's Hustler and (hey! read this!) Girls Gone Wild CEO J. Francis. Flynt, the mastermind of the Nailin´ Palin porn series, is telling us that porn is no less important than the auto industry and banks. ''People need entertainment.´´ The U.S. can´t afford it without a strong porn industry (neither can it afford to leave jobless thousands of porn actresses and actors, dildo makers and camera men.)
Go Larry, go!

Hustler's Larry Flynt and Girls Gone Wild CEO Joe Francis Ask for
GovernmentBailout of the Adult Entertainment Industry

The $13 Billion Industry Is In No Fear Of Collapse, But Why Take
Chances?


LOS ANGELES, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- As the 2009 AVN Adult Expo opens
in Las Vegas this week, Girls Gone Wild CEO Joe Francis and HUSTLER
magazine publisher Larry Flynt are petitioning the newly convened 111th
Congress to provide a financial bailout for the adult entertainment
industry along the lines of what is being sought by the Big Three
automakers, a spokesperson for Francis announced today.
Adult industry leaders Flynt and Francis sent a joint request to Congress asking
for $5 billion in federal assistance, "Just to see us through hard times,"
Francis said. "Congress seems willing to help shore up our nation's most
important businesses, we feel we deserve the same consideration. In
difficult economic times, Americans turn to entertainment for relief. More
and more, the kind of entertainment they turn to is adult
entertainment."
But according to Flynt the recession has acted like a
national cold shower. "People are too depressed to be sexually active,"
Flynt says, "This is very unhealthy as a nation. Americans can do without
cars and such but they cannot do without sex."
While not to the
degree felt by banks and automakers, the Adult Entertainment industry has
been hit by the effects of the economic downturn. DVD sales and rentals
have decreased by 22 percent in the past year as viewers turn to the
internet for adult entertainment. It is estimated that roughly half of all
internet users visit adult sites, with the number of unique visitors to
adult websites (including GirlsGoneWild.com and Hustler.com) has grown to
more than 75 million per month.
But the "saltpeter" effect remains.
"With all this economic misery and people losing all that
money, sex is the farthest thing from their mind," Flynt says, "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."
"The popularity of adult entertainment in America has grown
steadily for the past half century," Francis says. "Its emergence into the
mainstream of popular culture suggests that the US government should
actively support the adult industry's survival and growth, just as it
feels the need to support any other industry cherished by the American
people."
