If there's any better example of the fact that our culture is moving trends and cultural phenomenon from underground counter-culture ideas to wide-spread fad and trend to forgotten dinosaur in increasingly shorter spans of time, than my interaction with this young lady I've yet to experience it.
In case you are a 22 year old woman (or fella for that matter) and don't know of Friendster either, why don't you Beiber your way over here. However, for those of you who need a quick summary, Friendster is considered one of (if not THE first) true social networking site. The site from which myspace and facebook then sprouted. Friendster was founded waaaaay back in 2002 and enjoyed serious prominence as THE destination online for hanging out with digital friends and trolling for sex until about 2004 when myspace took the coveted spotlight. Since then, Friendster has been bought and sold so many times that I believe it's now owned by this guy.
Nevertheless, just as William Gibson hinted at with his novels in the 80's, the duration of relevancy of cultural lexicons is diminishing at an alarming rate. This young woman whom I mentioned before, was 12 years old in 2002 and age 14 by the time Friendster really hit its peak and yet, she has not even heard of Friendster. Its relevancy, so diminished, that it's not even a historical joke in her universe. She wasn't raised in seclusion and she admitted to being an avid social networking fan now using facebook, twitter, pinterest and the like. Incredible. The fact of the matter is that the duration of relevancy will only continue to deteriorate to the point when a cultural landmark will develop, evolve and fade into oblivion in the span of a day.
So what does that say about our porn stars??
Last week, I wrote rabidly about Riley Reid and her extremely fuckable nature. In my article, I suggested you might want to masturbate to her. However, the reality is that perhaps you already have. Multiple times. And perhaps you've grown tired and weary of her adorable smile and fuck-charms to the point that for you, she's last weeks news. Literally. So now you're on to Remy LaCroix and her "brand new" adorableness and have been rubbing yourself sore to images of her. She's only appeared in 9 films so far but by Monday? That number might be somewhere around 72. And by Wednesday? She might just be a faded memory coupled with so many cum shots.
It's unfortunate because again, it represents the slow decay of the porn "star". The performer who stands just a bit taller than her contemporaries (or perhaps swallows just a bit deeper) and instead, we are left with a gridlock of beautiful women willing to fuck on camera for the likes of you losers with no true glamor or glory. Just a non-stop turnover of flesh for immediate consumption which leads to immediate disinterest.
In a couple of years will a young lady runaway from home find her way to the valley, shoot her first porn scene, win an AVN award for Best New Starlet get pregnant, leave the industry only to return shortly thereafter to do solo masturbation scenes before disappearing entirely with little to no fanfare all within the span of a weekend or less?
If that 22 year old that I met is any indication, I fear the answer may be yes. Anywhoo, hit me up on Make Out Club, mmkay?
