Even adult entertainment is feeling the pinch

It seems the financial downturn is impacting industries everywhere – even the adult entertainment industry is suffering!

But they’re not taking things lying down. As it were.

Hustler publisher Larry Flynt and Girls Gone Wild CEO Joe Francis said they will request that Congress allocate $5 billion for a bailout of the adult entertainment industry, before they need to move from porn to pawning everything.

Francis said in a statement 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.”

In reality the porn industry is not seeing any significant dent in profits. Any droop in DVD sales is being offset by rising web activity. 

“People are too depressed to be sexually active,” Flynt said in the statement. “This is very unhealthy as a nation. Americans can do without cars and such but they cannot do without sex. 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.”
