It has got to be hard to work in the porn industry.

Yes, when not working they just have to poke around, looking for an opening.

The industry seems designed to screw the actors.

The industry sure does a good job of fluffing up the star's egos

I've heard that the entry-level positions are going down.

I suppose they will just have to find some other way to fill that void.

It's a wide-spread problem.

Stick in there. A large part will eventually come.

I bet a number of the male porn stars work for Amtrak when porn work is scarce.

Well, they could get jobs at pet shops and be doggie-stylers, or work giving blow dry jobs at hair salons, become trick riders at rodeos by being reverse cowgirls, the UN could always use some cunning linguists, and church groups always have missionary positions!

I feel bad about it, though... those people are hard up for work, and I'm sitting here fluffing out puns.

Maybe we should treat them to a facial.

But we'd be only paying them lip service. I'm rooting for them anyway.

Pun-free. Saw a trailer last night. The basis of the programme is a number of personal trainers who work in porn as they don't find being a trainer pays them enough.

[hijack] All of these bad puns reminded me. A few weeks ago, my 14-year-old son was speaking about us helping him with a paper for school, and he said something along the lines of "Dad's better with comment, but mom is a fluffer." I said "No she isn't", causing older sons to laugh and mom turn red. So, 14-year-old goes and looks it up on Urban Dictionary, and comes back in the room VERY RED.[/hijack]
