Get Stuffed.

Ethics, Porn and Math

Today I read something that really bothered me. A gay porn star who was teaching K-12 Math in FL was let go from his job and had his certification taken away becuase he was discovered to have had a gay porn past. This man has an MA in Education, why should his porn past (present and future) weigh in on his ability to teach kids? He’s teaching math, not cock sucking. This really annoys me. It’s along the same vein as politicians who have to resign for being normal. Tweeting pics of your junk is what guys do! Hand jobs in the men’s bathroom, common place. None of that means they can’t run the government. Society makes sex dirty. That is wrong. Sex is not dirty (unless you like it dirty ;)). It’s part of nature. God created sex and in His words,”it is good.” If Madonna taught me anything (let’s be real, she taught me a lot), it was that you shouldn’t be afraid of sex. I thank her for that. I also have to thank my high school crush Kristin C (yes, a girl) because she made me lose my shyness when it came to talking about sex. I remember that day in the lunchroom when she got everyone to tell her how often they masturbated. She was a powerful force.

I tweeted my anger at society’s nonsensical behavior to throw stones at people who do “sexy things.” My friend Stephen, who is a hard core teacher of children (shudders), was not on my side of the table (though he is on my team). We had an insightful and respectful, dare I say meaningful, conversion about this over Facebook Chat. We didn’t yell and scream at each other or call each other names. We didn’t hide behind screen names or unfriend each other because our views were different. We did what educated people do, we listened, we shared, and we learned.

Stephen found the discussion so refreshing (other internet bloggers just screamed him down for being too moral), that he thought it would be interesting to chronicle our conversion on his blog (well, Tumbler. Is that a blog? I don’t know, but a lot of people use it for porn, that I know for sure!). So, for your reading please, I present to you our conversion, aptly titled: ethics discussion with erotica writers (I’m the “erotica writers” if you didn’t know).

Read it, comment on it, maybe learn from it.
