Gemma Massey On Life As A Porn Star

Recommended Posts

Call me a prude if you like but I just saw this article on BBC's Newsbeat.

Newsbeat apparently is news produced for and targeted at a younger audience. I don't have an age demographic but I am guessing teens.

This article / interview presenting the life of a Pornstar in away that presents it as some kind of normal career path really appropriate?

Totally inappropriate for a programme that's transmitted immediately after Shaun the Sheep.:blink:

Christ she's aged poorly.

Although she does describe a good ponzi scheme in the glamour industry (The money wasn't there anymore as so many girls were doing it for free), maybe she alludes to the same happening in the porn industry in the future, although the money is super now.

I'm not sure that it is inappropriate for a teenage program, after all, teenagers get enough exposure to porn, at least they have someone talking about it rationally, rather than just blanching from it.

Edit: And is pornography not a normal career path? Says who?

I was pretty horrified, it's aimed at Radio 1's audience which is very young. Although older people listen I've was told by a BBC person once that the target age is under 24 and certainly loads of kids listen. It was like an ad to become a porn star even to the point of saying no danger of getting an STI. This country just loves to sell its young down the river these days. Get them into impossible debt to study or get a secure place to live - now persuade them to trash their bodies and their future to provide fresh blood for porn.

Under 24 is very young?

Kids have been sold down the river by others for ever. World wars, university degrees, the housing ponzi, it goes on and on. How is this any different, and why should they not discuss it?

If you think modern kids fall hook line and singer for aunties propaganda then you have a very dim view of them, and ate exactly the type they resent.

I agree...why not dish out heroin/cocaine/uppers/downers to kids straigt at the school gates - get it all over with. The younger, the better. I mean, they're obviously going to get into all that eventually. What I am appalled by is why the BBC aren't giving out infomercials on the career benefits of being a drug dealer. It's what I pay my licence for...

Actually, drug-dealing probably has the edge on porn star. I mean, how many people really make big money as porn stars? But there must be millions of drug dealers making a living worldwide. Car thieves can also do pretty well if they've got the skills. How to steal motor in 9 secs - I'm off to write that for the BBC - got to invest in the 'knowledge economy.'
