Recession Hard On Porn Stars

This has to be my favorite “brown shoots” story yet:

“How bad is this recession? Even sex doesn’t sell.

That’s the glum assessment of those in the adult entertainment industry, hundreds of whom gathered last week for the annual Cybernet Expo conference in San Francisco. The industry, now a multibillion-dollar online business, has discovered that people just aren’t willing to click-to-pay for vice the way they once did . . .

A lot of companies have been bouncing checks,” performer Annie Cruz said. “Some people have quit the business. A lot of companies have cut back shooting. There are a lot of girls who have not worked in a month.”

Sorry ’bout the headline, it was the tamest bad pun I could come up. (You guys can have fun with it in comments)
