God I love Jonathan Ames. There's a great piece in the new Bookforum (sadly not in their online version) about how he had to take his parents to a family counselling session and tell them what was true and what wasn't true in his nasty novels and his standup routines. His parents had been a little freaked out -- transvestites? Transexuals? Homosexual boxing pickups? -- and now they're his biggest fans (evidently).

In the first film, three superheroes are under attack from four female villains who look like cats. If a regular man makes love to one of these "bad pussies" he’s turned into a stuffed animal.

Now that's funny.

and then in the film’s climax they make the bad pussy’s leader, Kitty Kat, blow up when one of the superheroes farts on her.

Dear, dear...

The article was terrific. I've never heard of Jonathan Ames, but I'm going to do some research now. Thanks.

On a related note, I would suggest that you take the opportunity to see the new Ron Jeremy documentary, Porn Star. I went last night.

My god, gay porn has certainly fallen, uh, behind the times, plot-wise.

We're still hanging on tired old pizza delivery boy, horny cop and busted college boy, and supposedly 'straight military man' plots.

Looks like for once, we gays have something to learn from you straights.

:-P

Her nipples get wood! And there’s a chain reaction–I get wood! I get wood!

great climax to the article. :)

Nahh, WolfDaddy. We gays know what porn is supposed to be for: wanking. And what do we want to see when we watch porn? Hot sex. Not farting and lame campy plots. I hate when I buy a porn movie and find that it has a plot. Ick. If I want a plot, I'll pull out one of my Kubrick DVDs.

evanizer: well put. The campy plots set my teeth on edge. I don't even like the music, though I have seen things where that's gotten better. Give me grunting and wet fleshy sounds any day.

Hmmm.

New Metafilter motto.

What is "pornography"? A quick google search seems to indicate whatever it is there is a lot of it. I don't get it. Why are they all naked?? Why are they hugging? Are they trying to conserve water and energy by bathing with eachother? If so, why aren't they anywhere near a bath or shower????

Please help me I'm confused.

Don't you mean you'll whip them out? *snicker* And what about "Eyes Wide Shut"?
