I had a totally different topic in mind - but tonight at dinner my main squeeze and our guest urged me to bring our dinner conversation to the blog.
Last night, in fit of boredom, the Phenom and I watched perhaps 20 minutes of the HBO show "thinking xxx" about the porn industry. The show is a thinly veiled excuse to show naked people (huh, huh) on tv. They have a variety of porn stars and pseudo-intellectuals commenting on the industry. The only thing of any real value is the observation that porn stars have come into the mainstream of "celebrity" in our culture.
But, the image that left me scratching my ears are the "alien boobs." The part of the show we saw had a guy who was doing portraits of stars with and without their clothes in the same pose. The majority of the women photographed obviously had "enhanced" breasts. But, they looked like globules of flesh that wasn't at all sexy. Some women had caved in little chests and these almost "i.v. bags" dangling from their chests.
I have to wonder if men really do find this look "sexy" or attractive. What makes these women think this makes them "more" beautiful? Or, was L. Ron Hubbard more right than we'd like to think? (shudder)
