PORNO

Bam! Say "porno" and what pops into your mind?

Do you shrug -- you aren't interested in porno -- or are your shoulders up around your ears because you have kids that are getting educated by what they see in films, see at home on laptops, iPads, or cell phones their friends have?

Cell phones are every day a more powerful, more magical magic-wand that can take you and bring you anything and everything, including sex. There's already porno for the Android -- it's available in Android app stores. And Apple, as of March, will have an app with issues of "Playboy." You can bet your bottom dollar that a "Hustler" app will be available soon.

Should we, can we, do we try to stop cell phone porno? It's a question like smoke in the air -- intensely visible, less intense, inevitably vanishing. Sooner or later there will be lots of porno on cell phones because there's a market for it.

Why? You can answer that question based on your own proclivities. Sex is being sold to us by the media and we're buying it -- maybe because moment by moment, day by day, week by week, year by year -- our lives are not sufficiently interesting.

Aren't you, like most people, curious? Maybe you're not actively seeking anything new and better, but you wonder about fuller, richer, sexual pleasures, don't you? Kids are too -- they feel what we feel.

And like television and movies, cell phones are everywhere, even in the most primitive parts of the world. I haven't read about or heard about what fantastically complicated or simple brand new device will replace the phone. Will it be an ear jewel, or maybe a plug that can create a virtual screen in your mind on which you can see the 700 wonders or 700, 000 wonders of the world?

Thinking like this makes me feel very out-of-date,
but giddily tickled about being of an age
that won't be around to see the world change,
and have to change with the world's changes,
and become a ... a...
A dodo ? An extinct non-flying bird?
A self-gratifying iPhone, circa 2080?
A happily non-reproducing sort of thingum?
A hermity humanoid?

Oh my God, I don't want to be that!'
I'm glad I won't be around -- I'm GLAD to be almost over the hill!!!

Porn is with us. I personally hate it. Even my father and uncle watched in on 35 mm film. I know because as an adult, I was helping my mother to clear out her house to sell it and came upon these really old "Stag" films.

I had a "live in" boyfriend who loved it. Sometimes I put up with it.

My husband had more class and maybe a better sense of his own sexual prowess that he did not need porn to spice up our sex life. I personally find it really boring. ;-)

Does this mean that instead of a smoke break folks will be taking a porn break at work? I think an app is an awful idea. Can you imagine if you lost a cell phone and that was what was discovered on it? Mortifying thought.

Not necessary.
