Ok lets talk porn...

Now that I have your attention…

I was think­ing of this post con­cern­ing file shar­ing and how it has been a pain to per­suade peo­ple off of these sites. Mostly due to free music and porn.

I can’t tell you how many sys­tems I’ve worked on that were loaded with porn or with explicit icons on the desk­top. I’ve actu­ally had to tell explain the risk dif­fer­ence between stuff you will down­load with limewire or tor­rents and “good” porn sites that have sub­scrip­tion walls and do not want to infect you because they want you to be pay­ing your $10 or $20 or what­ever a month to keep looking.

These are tough eco­nomic times as my own job search has shown. With this in mind con­sider old but very rel­e­vant arti­cle:

The con­trib­u­tors, or ama­teur porn mod­els, they tar­get are between the age of 18 and 24.

Often strug­gling stu­dents, young sin­gle moth­ers, or just under­paid young women.

So they come to a site that seem­ingly offers them an oppor­tu­nity to make money while express­ing them­selves as sex­ual beings in an envi­ron­ment they are told is pro-​female and that their cre­ations will be viewed exclu­sively by members.

Now many of those sites do have sub­scrip­tion walls for their mate­r­ial just like many songs have copy pro­tec­tion and we all know how that works out. Once that file is down­loaded by a mem­ber and put on a tor­rent or on a sys­tem with any file shar­ing poof the wall is gone.

Do you remem­ber this exchange from the Mag­nif­i­cent Seven:

Chris: Harry tells me you faced big­ger odds dur­ing the Travis County war.
O’Reilly: Well, they paid me six hun­dred dol­lars for that one.
Vin: He said you got that Selena thing cleared up in less than a month.
O’Reilly: Paid me eight hun­dred dol­lars for that one.
Vin: You cost a lot.
O’Reilly: Yeah. That’s right, I cost a lot.
Chris: The offer is twenty dol­lars.
[O’Reilly keeps chop­ping wood. Chris and Vin turn to leave.]
O’Reilly: Twenty dol­lars? Right now, that’s a lot.

Con­sider this for a moment (con­tent warn­ing):

Each of the 19 girls on this video are accord­ing to a 2nd arti­cle from the same day are paid about $400-$700 for a shoot, I’d guess 3 – 4 hours maybe more or less. Think about how much money that is 15 months later with the econ­omy as it is.

Now look at that video again, look at the faces. (ok try again guys the faces) This par­tic­u­lar site is from Aus­tralia, I don’t know these girls from Adam Eve , but their friends and fam­ily do and 5 years from now or ten years from now their images will still be not only in the site archive but on tor­rents and down­loads avail­able any­where in the world. Back to the arti­cle in question:

What future careers are they jeop­ar­diz­ing by putting these images of them­selves out on the world­wide web?

Can you imag­ine what hap­pens when their faces are rec­og­nized when going for a job inter­view or rec­og­nized by a boss, co-​worker or a per­son who they might super­vise? Can you imag­ine you in that spot?

And these girls at least are adults who have been paid for their ser­vices, think of the idiots drunk at par­ties full of cell phone cameras?

We aren’t talk­ing about reli­gion or moral­ity here we are talk­ing the real­i­ties of the the 21st cen­tury. Those girls will still be online when their grand­chil­dren are offered the same deal. Maybe they’ve con­sid­ered it and fig­ured it was worth it. Maybe they don’t have an objec­tion or will write it off as a youth­ful indis­cre­tion but the bot­tom line for them and every­one is this:

Once you are on the net you are on it for­ever so be very care­ful what you decide do to in front of a cam­era or any­where near a cell­phone camera.

You ignore this warn­ing at your own risk.

Now that I have your attention…

I was thinking of this post concerning file sharing and how it has been a pain to persuade people off of these sites. Mostly due to free music and porn.

I can’t tell you how many systems I’ve worked on that were loaded with porn or with explicit icons on the desktop. I’ve actually had to tell explain the risk difference between stuff you will download with limewire or torrents and “good” porn sites that have subscription walls and do not want to infect you because they want you to be paying your $10 or $20 or whatever a month to keep looking.

These are tough economic times as my own job search has shown. With this in mind consider old but very relevant article:

“The contributors, or amateur porn models, they target are between the age of 18 and 24.

“Often struggling students, young single mothers, or just underpaid young women.

“So they come to a site that seemingly offers them an opportunity to make money while expressing themselves as sexual beings in an environment they are told is pro-female and that their creations will be viewed exclusively by members.

Now many of those sites do have subscription walls for their material just like many songs have copy protection and we all know how that works out. Once that file is downloaded by a member and put on a torrent or on a system with any file sharing poof the wall is gone.

Do you remember this exchange from the Magnificent Seven:

Chris: Harry tells me you faced bigger odds during the Travis County war.
O’Reilly: Well, they paid me six hundred dollars for that one.
Vin: He said you got that Selena thing cleared up in less than a month.
O’Reilly: Paid me eight hundred dollars for that one.
Vin: You cost a lot.
O’Reilly: Yeah. That’s right, I cost a lot.
Chris: The offer is twenty dollars.
[O'Reilly keeps chopping wood. Chris and Vin turn to leave.]
O’Reilly: Twenty dollars? Right now, that’s a lot.

Consider this for a moment (content warning):

Each of the 19 girls on this video are according to a 2nd article from the same day are paid about $400-$700 for a shoot, I’d guess 3-4 hours maybe more or less. Think about how much money that is 15 months later with the economy as it is.

Now look at that video again, look at the faces. (ok try again guys the faces) This particular site is from Australia, I don’t know these girls from Adam Eve , but their friends and family do and 5 years from now or ten years from now their images will still be not only in the site archive but on torrents and downloads available anywhere in the world. Back to the article in question:

“What future careers are they jeopardizing by putting these images of themselves out on the worldwide web?

Can you imagine what happens when their faces are recognized when going for a job interview or recognized by a boss, co-worker or a person who they might supervise? Can you imagine you in that spot?

And these girls at least are adults who have been paid for their services, think of the idiots drunk at parties full of cell phone cameras?

We aren’t talking about religion or morality here we are talking the realities of the the 21st century. Those girls will still be online when their grandchildren are offered the same deal. Maybe they’ve considered it and figured it was worth it. Maybe they don’t have an objection or will write it off as a youthful indiscretion but the bottom line for them and everyone is this:

Once you are on the net you are on it forever so be very careful what you decide do to in front of a camera or anywhere near a cellphone camera.

You ignore this warning at your own risk.
