Podfather: pod porn to be huge market

By Frank Barnako, MarketWatch
Last Update: 11:11 AM ET Oct 14, 2005WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- The adult-entertainment industry that kick-started the pre-recorded home-video market is likely to do the same with video podcasts.

Adam Curry, president of PodShow Inc., said this week's announcement of the new video iPod from Apple Computer (AAPL) sets the stage for more big changes in media.

"Porn is just going to be huge," he told listeners to his Daily Source Code podcast this week. "The porn guys are just going, 'holy moly,' " -- in gratitude for the new market that's opened up to them.
I hate to say 'I told you so.' Well, wait. No I don't. I predicted porn would explode through podcasting. In August. Now it's happening. And it's only going to get worse.

Read it and weep. Not to mention get the creeps. Daily Sally: Pod Porn

Forgive me for implying you are insensitive, but It must be easy to put down porn when you're a white female from an Ivy League university. I can't imagine anybody for whom it must have been easier to get sex. I guess it's very icky when compared to [though you surely don't believe this] the completely easy time you've had getting real sex, and the lack of years and decades-long dry spells.

I'm not trying to be mean about it, but I'm only a couple steps down on the status chain ( a guy, from the State U not Penn, not really obese or ugly) and I've gone whole decades without getting laid. I can form complete sentences, can hold a decent conversation, and although women say they want intelligent men, I score in the top 1% on GRE's ( all right, top 5% in math, but on verbal I'm stong) and so forth and regularly got rejected in favor of , say taller guys. ( I'm in the mifddle on that too, I'm 5'9") No bad smell, I don't have a shrill voice, I'm just not remarkabaly yang or rich.

Being a guy is like being a used car salesman, and you can never quit the job.
You have to bother stranger after stranger trying to get sex, or a relationship, or, basically, the time of day. I really dislike the frightened look women get on their faces when I talk to them, and I am a totally peaceful person; I've never even been in a fistfight and was a vegtarian for thirty years. Please don't stereotype me as only being after sex, I was almost always the one ditched for "space." If you're not gorgeous or a young millionaire, naturally charismatic, or some kind of blatant genius, women will never, ever, ever ask you out; or, in general, talk to you first.

I recoil in horror at what it must be like to be notably unattractive. My problem was just being introverted, when I was able to struggle enough to keep forcing myself to talk to strangers, women responded. But taking the first step is 95% of the social risk.

Women just view these things as "meeting a guy." What she doesn't understand is the trauma sensitive guys go through talking to woman after woman that turns out to just want to left alone. It's easy to say it's easy when you don't have to do it, because you're a woman.

For many not in the elite, we totally forget what sex is like, and isn't a question of simply calling Buffy or Gregory from whatever connected world you live in for a refresher course.

And forget what being disabled might be like. For some people. porn is the only chance to experience sex as anything but a totally internally generated autistic fantasy.

I'm not trying to judge you as cruel, we all form our opinions from our own vantage points, and you of course are probably sympathizing with what you might view as exploited people. But in a way it's just as tragic to be simply left out, the wrong school, the wrong jawline, the wrong shape.

And your time just goes by.

Luckily I got out of America, and now I'm set with someone who, happily for my base, vengeful side, inspires hatred from other women due to her beauty and poise. But I can tell you, it's no fucking picnic with beautiful women not just refusing to fuck you, but judging you at the same time!
