Wow, who would have thought porn stars were so messed up!
I guess a career in porn isn't everything its "Cracked" up to be. Time for plan B, professional wrestling.
|mashedtater - 2009-07-27 |
it seems kinda backwords with the description and the title there.
|Pillager - 2009-07-27 |
So, if the ones who died of car crashes & heart disease hadn't been in porn, they still be alive today?
Association with causation much?
Some of these stars are for Menudo.
This was actually a lot more depressing than i thought it would be, but I was still quite surprised to see it was made by an anti-porn organization...including all the deaths that had seemingly nothing to do with any lifestyle choices (ie, brain cancer) didn't really help their cause. It would have been more compelling, albeit shorter if they stuck to deaths that could at least sort of be attributed to being a drugged-up sex worker.
But...it's my understanding that Pink Cross was founded, if not completely run by ex-porn stars, so maybe that's accidentally smart--appearing in porn can not only kill you, it can also severely impair your ability to construct a strong argument.

Well, that was depressing. You know what I like to do when I get depressed? PORN!
Actually, alot more male suicides than I expected.
I saw a thing a while ago that followed a straight gay porn star. He was just in it for the money.
After he did a session, he came out and talked to the camera with a dead look in his eyes.
I suspect a fair number of male suicides are guys that get involved in the gay porn industry for the money, but are straight.
I also suspect that, since this is the one industry where women get paid WAY more than men, their financial troubles don't go away.
I also suspect that, given this as the only marketable skill they have, if the ol' block and tackle doesn't work so well (before the days of Viagra), you're done.

I remember when Savannah died. It was such a fucked up story and made me vaguely guilty for having wanked to a grainy scan of her that somebody uploaded to my BBS.

Wait, there was a real snuff film?
It wasn't intentional, so I'm not sure if it can be characterized as true snuff.
Actually it was intentional, if you're talking about Taylor Summers. It was a pretty disturbing case from what I read. She was working with some photographer who couldn't pay her so he had her do a shoot where the idea was the she was being tied up and abused or something and he really just tied her up and killed her and then just left. I think the guy finally got sentenced last year or year before. Not true "snuff" since the intention was not to use the footage for profit, but still fucked up.
I like the logic there. "Well, it turns out I can't pay you." "Well, that's problem. We'll have to work something out." "Howzabout I take some more pictures of you to pay you back?" "Oh, okay."
She didn't know that was the case in advance. The guy was, how should I say, bugfuck crazy.

Taylor Summers' bodywas found not 100 yards from where I was working. True story.

Pink cross? Queers.
|Horsecock Johnson, M.D. - 2009-07-27 |
I actually know a girl who got involved with Pink Cross after a brief run in "the industry" - we don't talk much anymore since she told me about that. She reminds me very much of the Born Again/12-Step crowd now, and even if we don't talk about drugs or porn, she's just not very good company anymore.

mom, dad? I'm moving to Van Nuys, bye.

I found this from one of the Youtube links! Anybody who questions the need for kids to learn how to figure out what they want and communicate that to their partner should read this. Apparently a lot of women in the 80's were grudgingly giving head because they didn't think to say no or to ask for reciprocation.
The 80's were a fucked up time, period. America started going in a real ugly direction around that time and it never really stopped.

Why is Wendy O'Williams in this list?
Ping pong balls.
|Camonk - 2009-07-27 |
I wonder if they'd mind if I watched porn, but didn't pay for it?
I'd like to think that they would approve of hentai, on account of the fact that no real people are involved in it, but that's probably hoping for too much.
|Broose182 - 2009-07-27 |
Pink Cross? More like Pink C#%&

I see one shemale. How many can you spot?
I had no idea that Anastasia Blue was dead, but I can't say I'm shocked. Jon Dough is a surprise.
It's actually pretty bad for you if you overdose or take large amounts regularly.
From the wiki:
Paracetamol hepatotoxicity is, by far, the most common cause of acute liver failure in both the United States and the United Kingdom. Paracetamol overdose results in more calls to poison control centers in the US than overdose of any other pharmacological substance.
An advisory panel recently suggested that the FDA completely ban medications like Percocet (which combine paracetamol with another painkiller) because of what they do to the liver.
I've heard the paracetamol is in there *for that reason*, that is, it makes you feel like crap so you'll be less likely to get addicted to the opiate. Wonderful stuff.
Liver failure? Tylenol? Naaah.
Actually the paracetamol/acetaminophen has a supra-additive effect with many opiates. You get much more painkilling effect from Vicodin (= hydrocodone + acitaminophen) than from hydrocodone by itself, which is why it's included in the forumulation of many painkillers.

They should've had that Okkervil River song as the soundtrack, just to make it a little bit more devastatingly bleak.

RIP Angela Devi. I liked her boobs.

Someone needs to make a video of all the tragic and/or shady deaths of people working in evangelical christian ministries over the last 30 years. I bet it would look pretty similar to this.
|Daddy Warcrimes - 2009-07-27 |
not to split hairs here, but Angela Devi never did any porn, just softcore solo photoshoots. (Unless I'm wrong, in which case someone should provide a link so I can, uh, update my records.)
I moved out of Van Nuys a few weeks ago, after four years. That place drove me to thoughts of suicide on a pretty regular basis.

So that's why I can't find more Juliet Jett's porn.

The number of HIV casualties stands out to me. How often do these people get tested? Because they should have to wait six months after the possible incubation period and then get continuously tested monthly afterward. It wouldn't be a total guarantee, but it would probably be better than what I assume happens, which is here's your test now get in the sack.
Back in the 80s and early 90s, heterosexuals didn't think they could catch AIDS. AIDS begged to differ.

Anyone been to the porn memorial by the National Mall? The sight of people rubbing one out for their loved ones is quite profound.
