An adult film company is capitalizing on the heat of the U.S. anti-establishment protests by using a tent in the middle of the "Occupy Oakland" encampment as the setting for a new gay porn flick. Read more

1. First the 'tent' issue was a huge distraction, now this will also be a distraction ...
from the main OWS messages.

I hope the GA will vote to ask the porn tent folks to leave ASAP.

6. I do too. Doing a porn shoot at OWS is understandably going to turn off a lot
of people. I don't think this is a smart decision by OWS. It will only add to the freak show narrative that the main stream media is perpetuating about the OWS movement.

Perhaps greater minds will prevail at the GA.

9. Occupy Oakland is not hosting it...
the folks making the flick are just doing it. "'Occupy Oakland' Hosts Gay Porn Video Shoot" I find the headline very misleading, it is stating that Occupy Oakland is responsible for it and it is not.

3. Are they actually filming in the stupid tent, or are they just doing set-up shots with it?
I think it's time for a new paradigm.

5. This porn's early Christmas present to fox news
I agree this is going to be a huge distraction. Fox news is going to start repeating this every 15 minutes for the next 30 days.

99% of Americans will not sympathize with a political movement that doesn't have enough sense to evict a porn production from its protest site.

7. the name of the film is Dirty Boy Video's "Occupy My Throat", and unfortunately this is going to be
tossed around like candy on all the missing-chromosome corporate lackey/boot-licker sites. Sheeeesh.

Consensus says...... boot them OUT NOW.

8. Strongly agree. This is going to be a big turnoff within OWS, as well
as to those outside.

I think it is downright creepy to introduce porn into OWS. What is the purpose or goal of doing so?

I think most people are not going to react well to a movement hosting porn being carried out in public and with the backdrop of the holiday season. It's absurd, offensive and vulgar. It's a distraction and demeans the good OWS is doing.

12. It's not required for us to fall for every hit piece that is spewed
out of the corporate media. We can pass on some. It's not like the banksters and their government lackeys are ever going to run out of good ones.

11. While I don't object to porn
this film company needs to pick a different spot. I wonder who really set this up, somehow I imagine there's conservative dollars at play here - and a lot of them. Definitely worth looking into...

15. Wasn't it Dick Armey that had a history of porn investment?
And isn't he also the leader of TeaBag USA?

22. Except Dirty Boy Video is an amateur small porn company
One of te last few that has yet to close its doorsi might add (nearly all are struggling or closed in the last few years- small amateur porn companies are not doing well).

23. Not my words
Copied and pasted from the article. Would like to know how filming could really take place in a little tent in the middle of OO. Thinking that was just the set up? Actual filming somewhere else? Thankfully not much else has been heard about this.
