Playboy and Bubble Gum
- “Playboyâ€™s circulation has dropped from 5.6 million in 1975 to about 800,000 now.” Also, “the United States edition loses about $3 million a year.” We might think this is just an objective business decision.
- Cory Jones, the chief content officer of Playboy said, â€œDonâ€™t get me wrong, 12-year-old me is very disappointed in current me. But itâ€™s the right thing to do.â€ We might think they had a moral realization which led to a change of heart as a company.
“Porn is the bubble gum of sex. It tastes sweet and gives you something to chew on, but it doesnâ€™t fill you up. It canâ€™t. Worse yet, it convinces you that you are eating something while you die of starvation. Itâ€™s like watching a person go from one piece of gum to the next, complaining about their hunger despite their fatigue from chewing. No amount of new gum will fill the craving they have for food. And imagine the paranoia theyâ€™ll experience if they actually swallow the gum and then have to figure out how many years it will take to digest it! Contrary to popular belief, most people can digest gum just fine. But gum wonâ€™t fill you up. The solution is to stop chewing gum and start eating food.”
