pict OBIT: Linda Boreman aka Linda Lovelace (49) RE: OBIT: Linda Boreman aka Linda Lovelace 26 Apr 02


The program is called Boogie it is a teen interest program on at about 4pm-5pm,with live interviews with Boy/Girl bands etc lots of music videos and sms requests,competitions,computergame and dvd reviews with a couple of youngish gregarious presenters it seems to be aimed at 12-16 year olds.

The young porn model was totally relaxed and I really sincerely doubt that she was in any fear she was depicted as a reasonably mature and intelligent female who had made the decision to make a living from her body and wasn't in the slighest bit embarrassed by this,the thing is porn in Denmark is not regarded as being dirty or immoral by the majority of the population so a career in porn will not bring shame to the family of a person involved in it as it would in say Scotland or Ireland(both countries that have a fairly christian and conservative view of morality and sex though that is obviously changing).

Of course this woman might have been hiv positive and on drugs but then again so could the presenters or the popstars,she certainly seemed perfectly lucid whereas most drug users are not.The fact of the matter is that in Denmark they have a far more relaxed attitude towards sex it is seen as a perfectly natural act and there doesn't seem to be much if any shame attached to making money off it.

When I talk about the morality of the past I'm talking about the religious,somewhat puritan,christian idea of morality that was widespread not that long ago over most of Europe or the stiff,proper,Victorian idea of morality which once dominated peoples lives in the British Isles.

I'm not saying I agree with this young woman in fact I don't like the fact that there was no mention of,or questions asked about,possible negative effects of being involved in the porn business.The point really is though that the porn business is gaining a legitimacy that formerly it didn't have.Is that because of a changing view of morality or not?I think it is,and that change has come about because people are making their own minds up about morality where before they relied on the church to be the guide as to what was right and wrong.
