Even Porn Mourns Economy

New, 7 comments

Contrary to the old bromide that the adult entertainment industry thrives in economic downturns, we learn via The Atlantic (via our sister Racked LA) that in fact, even your friendly neighborhood sex shop is suffering. Andrew Sullivan recounts the words of one of his readers on his blog, chronicling the slowdown in business the proprietors (a husband and wife team) of a Venice Blvd sex shop are experiencing. Business is down 35%, they've racked up $50k in credit card debt, are struggling to meet their mortgage payments, and most ironically, their own sex life has hit the skids. Consider this your rallying cry to buy more porn. You'll be saving a local business. [The Daily Dish via Racked LA]
