Changing Times, Changing Values

Maybe I’m just getting more indifferent in my old age, but nowadays this kind of thing is more likely to get a shrug from me, rather than outrage and condemnation:

Cheeky couple fund bucket list trip around Africa by flogging amateur porn

“We feel wild and confident about our sex life, I don’t see porn as negative in any way, plus it’s helped us financially too.

“He is the only person I have sex with on or off camera…

“We both enjoy it a lot. We have sex a couple of times a week, it’s a great stress relief and sleep medicine. We both are sexually experimental and we like to have a laugh during it.”

Well, as long as you enjoy it… it’s just another way Teh Intarwebz has made it easier to earn money, really.

It’s easy for people of my generation to shout and condemn all this, of course.  But I have a sneaking feeling that at age (say) 24, had a Pretty Young Thing suggested that we fund a trip through Europe (forget that Africa shit) by having us have an occasional bonk on camera, I might have had a different take on the whole business [sic].

And that was back in the 1970s.  In today’s more permissive climate, who knows?

Lastly, Teh Meejah have played a considerable role is lowering standards.  The above couple are described as “cheeky” in the headline;  I wonder how the headline would have read in 1978?

Quote Of The Day

From Rick Manning at ALG:

“America has seen what the FBI does when they’re serious, with 6 a.m. raids on targets of investigations if they’re in the wrong political party and kid gloves for the Democrats who have apparently become the official party of the government.”

Fire them all, burn down their buildings (especially that totalitarian concrete block in D.C.), salt the earth they stood on — and then we can get serious.

Train Smash Anticipation

Ooooh, this is going to be good:

Racegoers are free to wear what they want at the Jockey Club’s 15 racecourses after it was announced formal dress codes are being dropped in a bid to make horseracing more ‘accessible and inclusive’.

Instead of restricting racegoers from watching the action in certain enclosures based on what they are wearing, the Jockey Club has told its customers to ‘dress as you feel most comfortable and confident’.

The only exceptions to the new policy at any of the 342 fixtures staged by The Jockey Club is offensive fancy dress or offensive clothing of any kind and replica sports shirts.

One can only imagine what’s going to happen at Liverpool’s Aintree when the dress regulations are lifted, considering what’s happened in the past with a dress code:

Hold on to your hats, folks… it’s going to be a wild ride.
