Porn Kings to D.C. - Help Us Through Hard Times
Posted Jan 7th 2009 12:15PM by TMZ Staff

Joe Francis and Larry Flynt claim the economy has made America's sexual appetite go limp, so they're going to the one place where sex is always rampant -- Congress.

Flynt (the "Hustler" guy) and Francis (the "Girls Gone Wild" dude) are asking the government for a $5 billion bailout, claiming the adult entertainment industry has taken a huge shot to the face because of the downturn -- citing the fact that XXX DVD sales are down 22% from a year ago.

"With all this economic misery and people losing all that money, sex is the farthest thing from their mind," Flynt says. "It's time for Congress to rejuvenate the sexual appetite of America."

Francis sees his industry like the big three automakers, only BIGGER: "Congress seems willing to help shore up our nation's most important businesses; we feel we deserve the same consideration."

Francis says he's going to D.C. to personally make the pitch. Sounds like someone has a bone to pick.

I saw this article and had a good laugh. But the point is, why not? The government seems to have no problem giving money away to Wall Street and GM. Why not give it to the porn industry? After all, it does help to keep many run aways employed.

LOL, good point. Sad point. I am flabergasted at the very idea, I mean where does it end? This is certainly a time in history that has entitlement on the brain. (on the taxpayers back).

I need to be bailed out, I need to add to my Harley Davidson collection and Honda collection. I had to sell off two Honda's because of the space. I need to build a bigger warehouse, I only want need 1.5 million dollars for storage space and another 10 million for the upkeep of the collections.

If I get that you can park anything you want in the warehouse. What a nice indoor bike track we could have... I have a better chance of getting hit by a flying cow than getting 11.5 million dollars from the government.

"citing the fact that XXX DVD sales are down 22% from a year ago."

Ovidian cut back on christmas gifts this year?
Sorry, had to be said.

This is ridiculus, who's next to jump on the bailout bandwagon. Whats even scarier is some congressman will support it.

Maybe Craig will finally admit he doesn't have a "Wide Stance" and will support a bail out of the porn industry.

clearly the internet is to blame for slumping dvd sales. But if the Gov't is going to be handing out all of this money to major industries, I would try it to. can't hurt to try.

Exactly. Why spend money on magazines and DVD's when you can get all the free porn you would ever want right on your computer.
