    Porn, Starring Grandpa

    Competition is stiff in the porn industry (Get it? Stiff? Ha.), and specializing is really the way to go. Since most porn features strapping, young men and women, the niche that’s more open — and actually doing quite well in Japan — is that involving old people. The stars are balding or gray, their skin sagging, but stars like Shigeo Tokuda, 74, have no problem undressing for the camera. Shigeo has appeared in about 350(!) adult films over the past 14 years, and his wife and daughter have no idea. Elder-porn seems to appeal to older people who can’t relate to the young ‘uns, and younger people like it because there is this something that only an older generation has and the young people do not possess,” said director Gaichi Kono. Sadly though, there is age discrimination in this line of work. While a popular young actress might earn $100,000 per film, a “mature” one might only be paid $2,000. That’s why it’s so important to love your job. [Time] Keep reading »

    A Love Story Like Titanic

    Love stories about old people make us happy — why do you think Titanic and The Notebook did so well? — and a story in the Guardian this week could easily become Gena Rowlands’ next movie. Almost 70 years ago, a woman and her fiancé got into a huge fight just months before their wedding date. Violet Booth was so upset that she threw her diamond ring away, but she and her fiancé, Samuel, made up almost immediately and tried desperately to find the ring, to no avail. Fast forward seven decades. Violet’s grandson, whose hobby is metal detecting, searched the area and found the ring in just two hours. “I went round to my Nan’s with some maps and she managed to pinpoint the field. Then I got permission from the landowner and headed out. It was buried three to four inches down, and it wasn’t even damaged. I just had to give it a wipe,” the grandson said. And the discovery brought Violet, who has been a widow 15 years, to tears: “I was in such a state when we couldn’t find it. Samuel didn’t tell me off — he wasn’t like that. We got a new one, but it’s not the same, is it?” [Guardian U.K.] Keep reading »
