I suppose it had to happen sooner or later. American entrepreneurial enthusiasm knows no bounds, especially if a buck can be made. The newest development on the web is so-called “real-world-sex.” Not porn by some film factory in Hollywood, churning out XXX-rated features. These are video clips of real people having real sex, who for some reason want to display their erotic acrobatics for everyone to see. Who knows what it will take to “go viral,” but you can bet some young studs can’t wait to find out.
Cindy Gallop, founder and CEO of a web site devoted to such endeavors (I’m not giving you the www address!), recently headlined a well-attended session on the “The Future of Porn” at the South by Southwest techie convention in Austin, Texas. According to Gallop, “There’s a complete absence in society of an open, healthy, honest, truthful conversation around sex in the real world. I want to make ‘real-world sex’ socially acceptable and just as socially shareable as anything else we currently share on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram.” So she has created a “user-generated, crowd-sourced platform where anybody from anywhere in the world can submit videos of themselves having real-world sex.” And she adds, “We want the sexual equivalent of America’s Funniest Home Videos.”
Is nothing sacred anymore? Has America lost all shame? Does anyone really want to look behind the bedroom doors of sexual exhibitionists? My guess is that there is a market for stuff that Sodom and Gomorrah wouldn’t have thought of. As Billy Graham once said, years ago before the internet, “If America doesn’t repent we’ll have to dig up Sodom and Gomorrah and apologize to them.” We have reached a level of abomination that is well-described by the reference of Revelation 2:20 to the chief demon of the End times: You tolerate that woman [demon] Jezebel . By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality. Cindy Gallop, I think this means you!
