Finance Tip: Buy Stock in Tits

By / 05.10.10

Today’s Los Angeles Times features an in-depth examination of the continued and growing success of soft-core porn on cable television, even though the good stuff is available for free online. Apparently, “bare titties” is a growth industry in any market.

Premium-cable TV networks such as HBO, Showtime and Cinemax — the channel nicknamed “Skin-emax” for its preponderance of sexy programming — continue to fill their late-night schedules with low-budget, nudity-filled films, and the adoption of video-on-demand and pay-per-view services has given soft-core content wider play…

At the same time, premium channels have been upping the skin factor on their higher-profile, higher-brow series. Shows such as HBO’s “True Blood,” which debuts its third season next month, and Showtime’s “The Tudors” and “Diary of a Call Girl” all showcase fairly graphic sex scenes that are often as explicit as what you would see in an R-rated movie in theaters.

Ironically, the proliferation of hard-core porn in recent years seems to have made the softer stuff more appealing — or at least more palatable — to a wider audience, particularly among women, according to industry observers. While women who are now in their 20s and 30s have grown up in an era when adult entertainment has become increasingly mainstream and sex tapes helped launch the careers of celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton, many of them are still uncomfortable watching all-out porn, even if it’s in the company of a partner.

Translation: stop being such prudes, ladies. Here I am, being a gentleman and offering to watch some porn with you, and you’ll only go so far as bare breasts and simulated sex, with as much as seven or eight minutes of plot between sex scenes. Like, what is this, the 1930s?
