It was about time. Mental Sinema did its manicure, touched up its lips, got a new hairdo, doesn’t look back – and is horny as ever!
It’s the economy, stupid. You won’t get rich when you’re putting time, effort, and lots of money into something that isn’t able to eventually pay for itself. I changed that. The old site contained thousands of great images and grew fat over the years. I changed that too: this is a fresh start with new content, fresh faces and without recycled texts from this site’s predecessors (okay, here and then I will make exceptions). The old site seemed to look back mainly: I will change that. The old layout looked good and tried everything to look professional: this will continue, but sleek design isn’t everything.
At the end of the day, we’re trapped. You may be one of the good ones or a social disease instead: in the middle of life we are surrounded by death. And it can happen anytime. It might happen now. And what happens after that is depending on your belief system.
We have found many ways to ignore this simple truth. We are seeing meaning in the midst of the chaos called life, our concept of love isn’t just based on hormones and reproduction. And even if these concepts are too difficult for us, we still have entertainment.
Entertainment is our weakest weapon against the cruelty of life. But it’s the most successful we have. The promise of entertainment is the quietness of mind. Is to make us sleepy. Because we want it.
The sleep of reason is bearing monsters, they say. But if entertainment is making us sleepy in order to prevent us from fearing the cruelty of our existence, then I’d say entertainment is a friendly monster. And (apart from comedies) porn is the friendliest of them all, reducing our brain activity to zero.
Yes, we could see it this way.
But maybe it’s not that evil. At least I was able to meditate on this with the support of a bit of porn. The question itself remains, though: how can we go on with our life when everything around us is falling apart? It’s the question of theodicy for many years, and of course this silly blog can’t give you an answer. Not really.
There’s a war in Europe. No, this time it’s not about refugees escaping from such, but the big adblocker war. What’s happening? Big publisher’s in Germany are trying to get rid of users that installed an adblocker plugin in their browsers. Thirst, they displayed large messages on their news portals begging for users to switch off their blockers. The next level was bolting out users with an active adblocker. And now first companies are suing users who were publishing hints for circumventing the adblock blockers. If that’s no reason for putting these news portals on my eternal blacklist. Continue reading
Oh yes, that last one. Advertsiments! Evil, evil. But if I want to have that stream filled with porn, I have to take some additional content from somewhere. Since most of my visitors are searching for images anyway, I guess that’s okay. If not: hey, it’s cost-free for you, so take it like a man.
The question whether a photograph is pornographic or not was often discussed here in the Mental Sinema. But what about this: a photo of a penis is not pornographic per se, while a photograph of an erected penis might be. A photograph of a trans woman is perhaps not pornographic, but if she shows her little extra, even an erected one: is this more pornographic than showing her male counterpart? I think exactly this is one of the reason why photos of transsexuals in action are even kinkier than ‘normal’ porn. But see for yourself. Continue reading
Did somebody of you note that SnapChat is now more than 16 billion dollars worth? Isn’t that incredible? An application enabling instant porn for minors and otherwise completely useless ignites the fancy of investors. One could get a bit cynical about that; but perhaps this is just porn going mainstream. I’m just surprised how much money is possible in that ‘niche’ while real porn is still deemed inappropriate.
