Pink is a suggestive color, of course, and it's no surprise that it is used in porn names (Jocelyn Pink, Pink Visual, 1 in the Pink, 1 in the Stink), but when I looked at this Joanna Angel cover from Hustler, her ex company (she's at ClubJenna now), it sent me poking around the steveporn corner of the web to find that those people are addicted to the color pink. I think it's unhealthy.

In fact, the thing that might actually separate "altporn" as practiced and photographed before the turn of the century and "steveporn" as scholars have described it is pink-dependence.

I was amazed at how much pink turned up on the sites of Vivid-steve, Eon McKai, Vena Virago, and Winkytiki, whereas pink was at manageable levels in the work of Rob Rotten and Ron Royster, two others often tagged with the altporn label. Blueblood was almost pink-free, but Eroticbpm was exceedingly pink.

I don't know what this means, other than pink makes me think of candy, and that when I see a picture like this one of Joanna Angel, looking so frankly at {me}, I think black, not pink, because black is the color of my soul.
