Sibling Rivarly: The Porn Edition

The bro and I are both busy students. We don’t talk often, and when we do, it’s usually something like:

“Mom told me to call you.”

“Cool.”

“What are you doing?”

“Cooking chicken on my Foreman Grill.”

“Cool.”

Admittedly, not very interesting. But every once in a while, we get into discussions over the trusty AIM, when both of us are either too exhausted to work or too stressed out to type another academic sentence, that go above and beyond my brother’s grilling expertise. He’s a good liaison into the male mind and often has straightforward things to say…that is, when he’s not playing computer games…or eating…or watching the Cartoon Network.

Today’s discussion? Porn.

(21:42:)Me: why do dudes like Girls Gone Wild? What’s the allure?

(21:43:) The Bro: normal men don’t because normal, smart men realize pornography is free

(21:43:) Me: but how did it become so famous?

(21:43:) The Bro: …its not as famous as it projects itself

(21:43:) Me: why would someone watch a girl with most of her clothes on when he could watch a totally naked chick?

(21:44:) The Bro: I have no idea really, I guess the fact that they aren’t ‘professional’

(21:44:) The Bro: just drunk

(21:44:) Me: and that’s cool?

(21:44:) The Bro: I guess

(21:44) The Bro: why do women buy $500 bags?

(21:47) Me: what would you think if a girl you knew was in one of those videos?

(21:47) The Bro: I don’t think I’d care. It’s their prerogative. She made a decision to get fucked up, and she (somehow) signed a release while drunk enough to think she’d ever wear a girls gone wild t-shirt in public

(21:49) Me: is that all they get? A T-shirt? No money?

(21:49) The Bro: Ya, they don’t get paid.

(21:49) Me: how do YOU know so much about it?

(21:50) The Bro: because I actually READ. That or I just have better comprehension and memory.

(21:50) Me: we all know you’re the smarter child…

(21:50) The Bro: I’ve got nothing to hide. I’d gladly admit I look at porn on the internet. Frequently. Any man who says they don’t isn’t telling the truth.

(21:52) Me: what do you think about porn?

(21:53) The Bro: I don’t.

(21:53) Me: It makes me sad sometimes because I think about the people involved…I think that they’re probably not having fun at all…

(21:53) The Bro: Eh. Lots of people don’t have fun at their jobs…

(21:54) Me: Like, maybe they’re orphans and porn is their only way to make ends meet…

(21:54) The Bro: I generally don’t create my own sad fantasy about it, kinda ruins it.

(22:03) Me: So, defend porn in one sentence.

(22:03) The Bro: It’s a very human thing.

(22:04) Me: That’s eloquent. Hefner would be proud.

(22:04) Me: Any final words before I go back to work?

(22:05) The Bro: Nope

(22:05) Me: Nice.

(22:06) Me: …how do you really spell Forman Grill?

(22:06) The Bro: Foreman

(22:06) Me: Cool. You’re definitely the smarter one.
