Happy Hump Day!
And again...speaking of humping...here's a question: Can you turn a "ho" into a housewife?
The reason I ask is because I was watching Oprah yesterday, and the infamous porn star Jenna Jameson was one of her guests. I don't think I have to explain who Jenna Jameson is - but if you don't know who she is for whatever reason, she's considered one of the most famous porn star moguls ever.
Jenna is now retired, married and a stay-at-home mom, and I often wonder how someone goes from porn star, or stripper, or prostitute to...wifey? I mean, most men don't wanna know anything about your ex, your sexual past or how many partners you've had, let alone have it on VIDEO for all the world to see. So how does that happen?
I'm sure we've all heard the saying that men "want a lady in the street and a freak in the bed." I get that. But how do you go from being a freak in the street AND a freak behind closed doors - and still be respected? Most of the women that I know or have come in contact with are very much ladies out in public. They don't have their breasts spilling out or wear skirts hiked up their hoo-ha. They leave some things to the imagination...keep some things a mystery.
But these very same women are the ones who will swing from chandeliers if that's what it takes to make them and their man happy. They're into toys, whips, chains, lotions, handcuffs (don't judge) and you'd never know it. Their sexual secrets are kept well hidden, and you'd never catch a sex tape of them floating around.
According to yesterday's "special report" on Oprah, 70% of women keep their online porn viewing habits a secret, yet 1 in 3 women are consumers of a billion dollar porn industry. Even though we are women, and know women, who are open to all kinds of sexual discussions (this blog included), a lot of women are still afraid to let the wild cat out of the cage publicly for fear that they'll be considered strange, weird, sick, a freak or a "ho" if they do. We all have an inner "Jenna Jameson," but we're afraid to let it show because we feel we'll be judged or criticized. Nothing is wrong with being a sexual being, so long as we keep it behind closed doors.
But more and more women are coming out of their sexual shells. I'm sure most of us could put some"professional" porn stars to shame if we let our true talents shine. I know women...not me of course...who could put Superhead out of business - we'd just never admit it out loud.
So how then do the Superhead's, Jenna Jameson's, and other women "like that" get past their sexual history and settle down to become "normal," happy, respected wives and mothers? Men, would you date, or marry, an ex porn star or stripper? Would you be able to get over the fact that every red-blooded male has jacked off to the site of your woman giving head to someone else like a pro? Women, do you think you could settle down with Lex Steele after he retires?
Personally, I'd have a hard time with it (no pun intended...kinda). I guess I'm just not that liberal. If 1 in 3 women watch and are consumers of porn, erotica, sex toys, etc., then that means at least one of my girls has a dvd or a molded penis in her nightstand drawer with my man's name (and her juices) written all over it.
