So this evening I’m standing in line to pay at a London Drugs store. Directly in front of me is a dude about 14 years old, give or take some face peach fuzz. Ahead of him is another dude, about 40 years old.
Forty is putting down his items for the cashier to scan. He only has a few things. He then puts down his last item, which just happens to be the June 2009 issue of Penthouse magazine. Trust me that it was the June issue, I did a lot of Internet research after I got home. Anyways, the clerk sees forty slap down the Penthouse and in a blink of an eye, the clerk picks it up, scans it, and places it into a bag. I guess he was trying to spare forty some embarrassment and probably didn’t want to expose the kid to actual printed porn. Forty paid and he was off.
I can’t remember the last time I saw someone buy actual porn at a store. Who’s buying porn mags these days? With the advent of the Internet, having to pull your pants up from your ankles, and going to store isn’t required any more to get your porn fix. Maybe forty was moved to kick it old school for once. I can appreciate that. As far as magazines go, Penthouse is a solid choice (or so I have been told). Or perhaps he’s going to a place that doesn’t have Internet access. Another reason could be that he needs a skin mag for a prank of some sorts.
In any case, I hope he enjoyed looking over Pet of the Month Kagney Linn Karter.
