Porn Industry Asking For Federal Bailout. Yes, Seriously.

Porn Bailout

Stop the presses — the American porn industry is now asking for a federal bailout.

Hustler’s Larry Flynt and Girls Gone Wild’s Joe Francis say they’ll ask Congress to hand out $5 billion to help the adult entertainment industry get back on its feet — or, perhaps more appropriately, back on its back.

The two say adult DVD sales and rentals have slipped 22 percent over the last year. While Internet porn traffic is growing steadily, the industry isn’t profiting enough, the two assert. They believe it needs support — “just to see us through hard times,” Francis says. (And yes, he really did use that adjective.)

Flynt said the following in a statement released Wednesday:

“People are too depressed to be sexually active. 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.”

Congress has yet to issue any official response.

    ya good luck guys I will watch the circus. I want to see Flint sit before congress in a diaper or dressed as a giant dildo….
    Next we will be hearing about the alcohol and drug and tobacco companies asking for bailouts WTF Give us Americans a break. we aren't that stupid If we want sex or stimulation on any level I think we have ways to get it without making the general public's tax payers help put profits in the pockets of these guys.

    It's really tough to turn a profit when there are so many people around willing to shove

    a rack of billiard balls up their asses for free.

    Congress decided to do one better for the pornography industry and the American people – take porn out of the bedroom and place it into the daily life of America in order to make people’s lives more enjoyable and relaxed.

    This just goes to highlight how ridiculous all those bailouts are that congress has been panicked into approving.
