 Can Porn Save the Country from Recession!

The whole world might be drowning in recession, but there's one sector of the economy which is expecting boom in the bad times: the porn industry. According to Australia's newest political party, recession would stimulate demand for sex toys and porn films.

As global economic crisis forces people to cut back on discretionary spending, more and more individuals will come to adult shops, says the Australian Sex Party.


"Some adult shops are saying business has never been better," the Daily Telegraph quoted party convenor Fiona Patten, as saying.

"Some retailers are saying when people start to worry about their finances, and they're worrying about the economy, they go and buy a vibrator or an adult film.

"While they're cutting out going to dinner and going to the movies, they're popping into an adult shop.

"We're a cheap luxury that can make you feel good," Fiona added.

The party convenor added that with economists expecting the unemployment rate to rise, the federal government's proposed internet filter to block up to 10,000 unwanted sites could cost 16,000 adult industry jobs.

"If they go ahead with what they propose, we'll wipe out the adult industry in the next five years. The Australian Sex Party would probably be filtered out because we have sex and party in the name," she added.
