For me growing up as a child, there were two states of a fact. It was binary actually. Was it truthful or was it a lie.
When I was young, cursing would earn a bar of soap shoved in your mouth, and a deliberate lie would usually get your seat warmed up. It did not make a difference if you were a boy or girl. Lying was just not done. It did not take long to learn that the truth, good or bad was better than the alternative.
Is that why I like to write about a delicious spanking now and then? Maybe I should tell a lie… Ok back to the theme…
While many of us prevaricate to spare someone’s feelings or protect a friend, I think we have taken it to an extreme today. Why?
The family unit is in disarray and economics play into the scenario. When June Cleaver was parenting the Beave, her job was “housewife.” This was also true of my mother.
Clearly many might see that as misogynistic. I do not, as those were different times back then. Our roles were clearly defined by the mores of the time. Advancing from the dark ages and actually allowing women to vote and smoke and what have you, there were unintended consequences. The family unit suffered.
Soon it took two working parents to make ends meet as there were more workers in the workforce. More supply equals less demand aka cheaper wages. We have stopped teaching economics today. We must as the media and politicians are trying to convince us that more workers are a good thing. No people it is simple economics. Supply and demand.
The snowball picked up speed and soon even two parents working kept many below the poverty line. The losers were the children and society.
Honestly, I would like to see one parent home with their children. I don’t care which one, but children need supervision and a role model. The job of a parent is one of the most critical tasks you can have.
What if we paid parents to parent their kids? Children are actually a resource which any government depends on to succeed. Children grow up to be taxpayers.
To take the place of both parents working, Cable TV made the scene filling our homes with more than a half dozen channels that actually stay on past midnight. Because it is cable, the content is not as regulated thusly, now you have R rated material in your living room. Before Cable, one had to go to the drive-in on the south side of town or a movie house that specialized in those kinds of productions.
Shortly after cable, we had Video Tape and then DVD and blue ray! Now we stream everything!
TV soon took the place of books. TV took the place of other forms of entertainment as well as shaping our ideas of morality. Hollywood was now showing our kids the way. After this #mee2 movement one has to wonder just what Hollywood is up to. Never the less, Big Bird and the Count raised many children. I still think that is why many people today have an attention span of about 15 minutes.
Mr. Rogers had a hand in it, and I understand they are going to put his likeness on a stamp!
Our worlds were rocked when children were suddenly abducted, and then others killed by their own parents. We built walls and fences and had our kids stay inside instead of allowing them to roam the neighborhood to play with their friends.
Screens of many different kinds entertained not only our kids but occupied the parents time as well. Taking mom and or dad away from parenting into a virtual world of cops and robbers or stealing virtual cars and collecting whores. Or it could have taken them to some other made up family trying to make it work in a make-believe world. It is called escapism and we do it unbeknownst to ourselves.
It is not hard to understand why our values as a people are changing. Garbage in Garbage out. When you allow Hollywood to captivate your attention for entertainment and you watch media outlets who have an agenda, the fabric of society will take on a different pattern. In short, my childhood days will not look your children’s childhood days.
When you want to take over a country you first take over the media. Our media is corrupt, and only half the country see it. Others do not want to see it. Then you have both parents working or you have children in a single-parent home where the children become orphans. They rely on the TV, school and older children for guidance. Role models if you will. Today we see Mylie Cyrus who now admits that she was high while filming her infamous Wrecking Ball, as a role model.
We also see older kids selling drugs and our children witness this and see it as a way to make tax free cash. “I don’t need no stinking education!”
Drugs of all sorts pervade the music industry and the movies depicting the use of them as normal. Not only the movies and sitcoms but also in music. Destructive behavior is glorified, and then people wonder why this child or that child overdosed. A complete surprise!
The entertainment industry knows bloody well why but they will not admit it as money talks and a few dead children to them is nothing. When Dumb and Dumber released there were stupid people who actually tried some of those stunts including laying on the road where there was traffic.
A recent commercial for insurance of some sort depicting a child putting his toys down the toilette had many that I personally know calling plumbers out as their kids flushed their toys down the commode after seeing that commercial!
Much like James Dean and cigarettes pervaded the movies making smoking look cool. Drugs in the movies do the same thing. We have not learned from history and are doomed to repeat it.
There is no honor in dying from an overdose!
Why am I picking on Mylie or James or the music industry? I am not actually. While I don’t judge people or try not to, I think those in the public spotlight have a duty to understand that many will emulate them as a form of flattery and some will do it just to be cool. What they do and what they say has a larger impact than what you or I do or say. Why? They have no special insight into anything. They can remember lines and emote. Hardly a reason to worship them but people do. What they do have is a large megaphone! You and I may not have that. Even with Social media without thousands of followers, your lone voice in the wilderness gets lost in the noise.
A year ago I wrote a book called Cyber Subs. It is a somewhat naughty story about two girls who cannot make it in rural Kansas. The story depicts what life was like in a small agrarian community. It then moves them to a large city where a connected life changes their world.
While my reasons for writing the novel were many, one of the things that I was trying to do is call attention to a real-life scenario happening today. Close to 2000 ladies are now on this one site, at any given time basically being a slut for tips. I don’t really like that word and I hate to use it pejoratively like that. What else could you call it?
When one of my twitter followers had in her bio “CyberSlut,” I was taken aback. Understand the world that I came from, girls actually cared about being virgin when they married. While young men I am sure had much looser standards, one did not want to be that girl that was talked about especially in a small town and one certainly did not want to be that girl that went away for several months. I remember the boys were happy to make third base, but when it came time to marry these same boys looked for someone who was not a “lending library.” Assholes huh?
Believe it or not getting pregnant or something that required a shot of penicillin was about the worst that could happen to you back in the day. Aids is a relatively recent invention and a possible consequence as far as a lack of sexual morality goes.
Today I spent a few moments on that site to see what if anything had changed. WOW! Just about 2000 models during the middle of the day doing their best to lure men or women into their “room.”
One girl was talking to the crowd of 344 users when she mentioned that there is a market for “dirty panties.”
She lamented that she did not like to sell them as it was a hassle to go to the post office. “If I cant make 50 dollars for a pair, it is not worth it!” Her words.
I totally concur that going to the post office is a headache but $50 for nasty panties?
I remember watching an Amy Schumer skit where she said something to the effect “don’t you just hate it when you pull your panties down and it looks like someone blew their nose in them?”
The audience laughed and I gaged, and then changed the channel.
So tell me followers of mine, who would pay good money for dirty panties? How would they explain that to their mate, if they have one? “Yea funny thing about those, I ahh got them off eBay yeah eBay and they were supposed to be new …. for you honey…” Would she buy it? If your mate is on that site, I suggest you spice up your sex life or get some help.
Do you think Vickies is missing an opportunity? They could have models wear their product and then sell it on eBay… Nah, probably not!
The problem with sites like this as I see it, they cheapen human life. They, in fact, dehumanize the girls on it and probably the miscreants paying good money to entice more ladies to partake in this type of behavior. If there were no desire, there would be no market.
While I do think that prostitution should be legal and regulated where health is concerned I also believe that this type of thing on the internet where any age of a child can access it, is wrong. Young folks cannot possibly process what they are seeing and if they are exposed to it, what will it do to their psyche?
Women are screaming about being treated poorly by men, and then there is this. This is only one site of which I know of many more. Which is it? Respect as a person or just sexual object? We are sending a mixed message, and the receivers of that message could be your husband or your three-year-old.
I did go to a lingerie show with some friends one day for “charity.” You could purchase the item from the model, and she would take it off and hand it to you at your table. We thought it all great fun, but we were actually looking at the product and not the models wearing them. “Is that a lie? Is that a lesbian activity?” This was so long ago I think they had pasties on. As I remember these were real women, you know with curves.
“Nothing but the Bass”
I guess I should have waited to write the book as the site has evolved since I last checked it out. The book gets over 3000 hits every day, so people are interested in it.
As a writer, I must tell you that if you are observant, there is plenty of material out there. As much as I would like to understand the “models” mindset I would not mind trying to understand the person who would actually buy a pair of dirty panties. Maybe not. I wonder how many she sells? There is a difference between lingerie on a model in front of you and dirty panties. C’mon there is a difference, right?
I try hard not to judge people. We are all here doing our thing. I write for the masses, and those girls are performing for them. What I write is the creation of pure fantasy, and they are providing an illusion of a visual kind for those that need it or desire it. Men are undoubtedly visual creatures, and ladies are more intellectual when it comes to erotic fun. Reading a story from a good author, the picture in our head is much better than an actual scene in some movie or on a computer screen.
In a book, for instance, we can put ourselves in that characters head and soon it is us taking off our clothing for those 344 users. If written correctly we should be able to feel what that model felt. Including the slap on her ass. Ouch!
I tried to imagine what it would be like to remove your clothing on camera for several hundred people at one time. Would it be an adrenalin charged adventure or would it be just ho-hum? Would it turn into ho-hum after a few times of performing? If you read Cyber Subs, both of the characters are so fun. Trisha is delightful. Honestly, she is someone I would love to know.
Do those models fantasize too? Do they imagine that all those men want them… If you are a model on any site like that, please feel free to drop me a note. Check out my website at www.authortwscott.com. From there go to the contact page. Please, guys, no dick picks. Unless you are …never mind, no dick pics. It is just amazing how many hard human parts find my inbox. No, I mean as in e-mail. Naughty boy.
I write about nudists in my latest series Nudists of Shangri-La. After much research, I tried to put myself into that mindset so I could write about it. Much of what I write about comes from actual life experiences, I will just leave it there.
This weekend try to love someone and make them feel special. We need more genuine love in this world. It is too full of hate, contempt, and bigotry all of which I rail against.
Love and sex are two different things gentlemen.
We are much more alike than we are different. Who we listen to and where we were raised, slants our mores but if we could all get together on the same page we would find we have much more in common than that which divides us. The media for some reason are working overtime to drive us apart, but it is not true. You even have more in common with the civilians of Russia than you know. The Gods don’t want you to know that, but it is true.
Yes, my newest novel Gods and Insects is coming along. That is a tease….
That is actually what Nudists of Shangri-La is about, although it is a titillating novel it also has some enlightenment philosophy in it. When reading that try to put yourself into Hal’s or Judy’s head. Since it is narrative driven it is easy to do. If you liked 50 shades you will love this book!
Much Love- TW
