Forbidden Elderly Care.

 

Congratulations, Japan, you've just won the prize for the country with the greatest pornography titles! And believe it or not, the films mentioned are two hits in an unexpected market that's just burst onto the country: elderly porn. Yup, you heard us right...senior citizen pornography.

But some themes of the vids that Time magazine reports the Japanese AARP is gettin' it on to might surprise you: incest and inter-familial sex. For example, some flicks by the company Glory Quest depict sexual relationships between an older father-in-law and his son's wife. The older generations don't relate to "school dramas," a p.r. flack tells the mag.

I'm sure not all of the elderly porn depicts inter-familial sex, so I'm not judging all the elderly porn with a wide brush. But wives-and-fathers-in-law seems creepily exploitative to me -- and incest porn is really fucking disgusting. If I were a Japenese woman and found my dad/father-in-law/husband in possession of these kinds of vids, I don't think I would want to be around him anymore.

But on the one hand, I know that society realistically can't control human desire. It mostly shouldn't even attempt to (go Netflix the move "The Notorious Bettie Page," about the S&M pin-up star, if you haven't already seen the flick). I know having a fantasy doesn't always translate into an action, but if we sanction fantasies that allow for innocent people to be exploited, aren't we complicit in the exploitation? Should this kind of porn be outlawed or should the companies be taxed for it, so they do not have the economic incentive to make it?

I really don't know the answer...but reading that Time article gave me the willies.
