I think I’ve alluded to it on here, but I’ve worked very much on the periphery of the adult industry as a film reviewer for the last 15 or so years. And I think my time being involved is coming to an end.

Not because I’m tired of sex or watching attractive people do so—far from it. Rather, it’s a combination of demands on my time and my complete irritation with the porn industry’s inability to grow up. From the misogyny and racism that has run rampant throughout films to terrible writing and scenarios to the current obsession with incest, I just can’t do it anymore.

Sex is supposed to fun. It’s something we share with others, the occasion where we completely expose ourselves to someone new. I like good adult material. But it’s become so rare that I don’t really want to bother anymore. It’s someone else’s turn.

On the plus side, I have learned a lot about makeup along the way.
