Apparently the pornography business isn’t as recession proof as they thought it was. Larry Flynt and Joe Francis even appealed to the government for taxpayer funded relief. With the pr0n onslaught from the Internet cannibalizing DVD sales, how will the “jizz biz” survive long term?

From the Los Angeles Times:

For Stern, 23, the rapid decline of job opportunities in the porn business over the last year has been dramatic. She has gone from working four or five days a week to one and now has employers pressuring her to do male-female sex scenes for $700, a 30% discount from the $1,000 fee that used to be the industry standard.

Less than two years ago, Stern earned close to $150,000 annually, sometimes turned down work and drove a Mercedes-Benz CLK 350. Now she’s aggressively reaching out for jobs and making closer to $50,000 a year.

As for that Mercedes? She’s replacing it with a used Chevy Trailblazer—from her parents.

“The opportunities in this industry really are disappearing,” Stern said. “It’s extremely stressful.”

Henry Lanz, Stanford professor, Nabokov’s colleague and chess partner who “married the 14-year-old daughter of a friend.” Was he Humbert Humbert?

Terrific stuff. It must have taken a very long time to compile these shots and I applaud the compiler’s commitment to his unique art form! He (for I am assuming only a male would think of such a thing…) should do an installation of these in an art gallery. What a great, fun idea.
