Tomorrow's my birthday, and I turn 36. I'm not bothered by it at all, but when my husband jokingly referred to me as a 'senior pornstar'... it got me thinking. Am I really that old? To most of my friends, I'm a fucking pup. However, in the world of porn... I'm no spring chicken, and rightly so. Spring chickens have less muscle and meat on them!
Most people will easily call someone out for racist comments, or racial stereotyping in a porn scenario.... but I find that ageism is always given a pass. Granted, from a marketing standpoint, you want to get models that will be popular with a wide audience, but hot is hot!
I shot with Allen Silver early on with Edger9.com, because I thought he would be great to shoot with.... and I was right! But I couldn't believe the amount of negative ageist comments that I received. If he isn't your cup of tea... so be it. No need to get snarky, and say that men like him should be euthanized. Living in SF, and having a husband who's much older than me... I can appreciate all that mature men have to offer. I just hope that when I get to that age, I won't have to put up with stupid little kids that think they're all that, just because their in their 20's. Fuck you! For the record.... putting on your hook-up profile "don't even bother me if you are over 30", doesn't make you look cool. It just makes you a douche.
