“You know, my family is VERY religious.”
Free Speech Admission Fee
by Denise LaFrance
Greetings Genital Readers,
I’d like to tell you a little bit about the fact there’s a price one has to pay for being the “squeaky wheel”.
A few years ago, I decided to write and illustrate a book about the private lives of some of the 70’s most noted porn players; the people acting and involved in the production end of our illustrious Porn Industry. This book is to be titled:
The Golden Heart & Soul of XXX~
A Celebration of People
The general purpose of my book is to humanize the people in the Industry and to demonstrate to the general Public that these people are every bit as valid and worthwhile human beings as most everyone else in Society and that, despite their unique & adventurous approach to making a living, most of the people are much like anyone else in their core being~good wholesome human beings with dreams, aspirations, families, goals, ideas and just good hearts.
My book’s still in the making. It’ll be ready when it is.
Patience please. Wrinkles to iron.
I just want people in society to stop casting value-judgment on others who choose to color outside the lines of “normalcy”; especially when those who judge use the platform of religion to bolster their prejudices. If one is claiming to “love God and if they love all of this God’s children”, then one cannot viably exclude an entire group of People just because they disagree with how those people choose to celebrate the enjoyment of Human sexuality. To dismiss these people as “useless” is hypocritical and in direct contrast with religion’s “love thy neighbor” pact.
Ipso facto: Somethin’ stinks in Denmark.
The price I’ve had to pay for my seemingly outlandish point of view on all of this has been moderately high – yet worthwhile I feel.
Yes. I’ve ruffled the feathers of some former friends family and colleagues but: to stand behind ones word is, to me, crucial and I am doing just that.
So I’ve lost the respect of some former friends and family members as a result of my project. This is fine by me as those people have obviously some soul tightening of their own to contend with and if they judge and condemn me for speaking my mind, then they aren’t worth impressing in the first place. Right? Ah so now it’s getting personal…that just add’s grease to my skillet of intent.
For the greater good of Humanity at large, I stand my ground and am enjoying some of the amusing aftermath.
You know, my family is VERY religious.
I was initially being a coward and wrongfully hiding my book from my Family-parents in particular…and so dear Readers, you wanna know how they found out I am doing my book?
It’s worth a laugh so swallow whatever you’re drinking or sucking so you don’t shoot liquid out your nose.
One Sunday my Mother was visiting me. We were sitting in the living room and having a nice Mother-Daughter chat.
The doorbell rang.
I went to answer the door because my Father was at the door after his trip to the fromagerie to get us some nice croissants and cheese for their post-church luncheon.
So while I was letting Dad in, the phone rang.
I walked in the living room with my Father, only to hear the answering machine come on.
Suddenly the emotional CLIMATE of our chaste little visit was punctuated by the jovial voice of RON JEREMY…telling me which hotel room I should come to meet him in in order to take the reference shot for the portrait I was to paint of him.
THAT is how they found out about my book…and yes , they are well familiar with Ron Jeremy since they USED not to be so ‘religious’ but had quite a “FEW” of his videos before they found JESUS.
(Here is the painting that came about)
So while they were busy finding Jesus, they found RON and their daughter’s dirty little secret plan to debunk the myth of porn people being evil.
I’m glad they all know now. For me to initially hide my book was me being a hypocrite. I’m proud of my book’s intent and proud of all the wonderful friends I’ve made and met in the Porn Industry.
By the way, for the record, I’ve met some of the finest human beings on the face of this planet in the Porn Industry.
Mavericks!~ The Lot of them and very raw, real and good people with their heads screwed on right and hearts all in the right place.
So thanks for reading my little recollection and unsolicited opinion.
I look forward to communicating with you on topics of societal assholery, sex, lust,love, life and debauchery as I’ve plenty of views about all of the above.
I’m a big fan of free speech and freedom in general.
I love people who have the courage to create, who follow their own hearts and who have the balls to be original.
Sex is great. Sex is good. Let us thank you for the wood.
