How do porn stars explain their careers to their kids?
I can't imagine the conversations. How do they do it? Do their kids get psychologically damaged when they see their dad/mom hammering another person?
How was *I* supposed to shield my little girl's eyes from filth such as "John Golfarb, Please Come Home!"? I had to send her to Japan. I didn't want her to be damaged.
When I was younger I always wondered how you would tell your kids if you worked in a condom factory. I would never have thought about someone who worked in porn, because it was very underground in those days.
R2, if you simply can't afford to send your little one abroad, the next best thing to do is broach the subject by watching The Golden Girls Valentine's Day episode.
Robert van Damme has children in their early 20s. I wonder what they think of their dad's job.
Not all porn stars have kids but I'm sure some lie about their job specifics. Would you tell your children that you worked in a slaughterhouse?
Chance Caldwell solved that problem by appearing in porn WITH HIS SON.
Does anyone recall Seth Green as the little boy in Woody Allen's, "Radio Days"?
"Dad..dad..what do you DO for a living?"
I knew a couple who did porn and married, and they told their two children (something like this): "We used to fuck for a living and now we fuck for a loving, and if anyone ever gives you shit about us, tell them at least your parent's knew what they were doing when they made you."
I did wonder if the kids were a little young to assimilate it.
I used to think Chance Caldwell was hot, but to do pron with his son is so wrong.
First they evade the question. Then they may lie and when the kid is old enough he may get told the truth bit by bit (adult films ... nudity ... love making ... sex ... nice income).
rarely is porn all they do. They can just say they are entertainers.
Is it better or worse that being Russian spies (as in "The Americans"?)
Blue collar job.
What do parents tell other family members and friends when they know their kid does porn?
Hoe do gays explain their sex lives to their kids?
Kurt Wild is a gay porn star who is also married with two (at last count) kids.
I've often wondered what he did for "bring your daughter to work" day.
Honey, Mommy can't take you to Bluebirds today. I'm shooting a triple-anal scene this afternoon and I'll be in no shape to bake cookies afterward.
[quote]It's pretty easy to tell when the reactions are too instant and exaggerated (like this one).
Other people with strange careers seem to manage just fine.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
