" If this is a bad thing, you’d never know it from the looks of our stats. The money keeps coming in, and a great deal of it comes from those folks who have the dreaded “Cookie Jar” syndrome. "

It seems that every race, religion, culture and person has certain taboos about pornography, along with different definitions of what is obscene. The adult industry has always had its share of frowns, attacks, and abuses.

But in the course of life itself, there is nothing more natural and beautiful than sex. Whether for reproduction or entertainment, sex is a huge part of every adult’s life, no matter whether that adult shuns sexuality or embraces it wholeheartedly.

So why is it so difficult for so very many people to let go of their inhibitions and enjoy the natural delights of human nature? For some, it stems from their religious background.

Many religions have strictures against sex. There are some things, like certain positions for example, which are absolutely forbidden, which make them either feared or incredibly desirable. As a matter of fact, in many cases, the more taboo a position, the more it is desired.

Some call this the “Cookie Jar” syndrome. Putting that into context, if a cookie jar is closed or out of reach, the more a human being will desperately want what’s in it, no matter how many times they’ve been told that they can’t have it.

Other people, not bound by religious tactics, will be afraid of their sexuality because of bad experiences or cultural beliefs. Those people often find it very difficult to overcome what they’ve been taught, either by experience or custom.

Can these social strictures against sexuality be overcome? Oh yes, you’d better believe it. Often, these are overcome in private, behind closed doors and with great trepidation.

However, occasionally, as in the case with many people who enjoy BDSM practices or those who discover a hidden desire to be seen, these fears are overcome while in the public or semi-public eye.

The adult industry is helping to break the barriers. Our industry shows the people who are learning, trying, reaching to break through to the other side just how enjoyable sexuality can be. We are teaching those who would otherwise be content to silently dream about what they dared not attempt.

Is this a good thing? It is very true that our industry remains solid, growing by leaps and bounds each year. Our fan base is not diminishing in the least, and with all the new niches that are coming to exploration, there is something for everyone, whether old hand at a particular thing or just curiously learning what is desired.

We will always have problems and issues with people and their own particular set of morals. We can’t change that, though at times it’s certainly wished that we could. All we can do is offer our best to our surfers, bringing them back time and again to learn, enjoy, and explore.

If this is a bad thing, you’d never know it from the looks of our stats. The money keeps coming in, and a great deal of it comes from those folks who have the dreaded “Cookie Jar” syndrome.

Think about it: If sexuality wasn’t taboo in some form, then sex wouldn’t sell.
