A Lively Art, Indeed!

A most unusual advertisement appeared in the Weekend section of Friday’s Washington Post print edition (not, alas, as far as I can tell, on the Post’s website).

On page 29 of the section, under the general heading “Guide to the Lively Arts” and the subheading “Auditions” is this ad:


Serious British documentary
seeking appropriate
contributors from the following
groups who are willing to
appear on camera:

- Regular heterosexual
pornography users
- Heterosexual pornography
- Former pornography addicts
who are now
devout/born-again Christians
- Pro-pornography Christians
- Porn users, former porn
stars/nude models who are
now Senior Citizens

Those with legitimate interest,
please reply to:

with your details and a short
summary of your suitability.
Thank you.
One wonders what kind of response this sort of ad elicits.
