Saw Relative When Watching Porn

How does it feel to see a blood relative in a porn video or picture?

Hand in Thumbs Up position with the letters XXX overlayedOne morning a neighbor came running over first thing to tell me about her night. She and her boyfriend had rented a porn video and all of a sudden there was her uncle! She said she was immediately shocked and yelled “Turn it off! Turn it off!” Shortly there after, she was proud of him for his career. (He is actually a very famous porn star and most people interested in porn would recognize his stage name.) However, like most of us, she hadn’t wanted to see her uncle naked – especially in a sexual situation! She wasn’t sure whether or not she should tell him she knew or not. (I can’t report on how that part turned out because she never reported back.)

On my part, family gossip has it that one of my mother’s cousins played a bit roll in a porn movie. (“One of the classy ones.”) Even though I would probably not recognize him if I saw him naked or not, I have generally avoided porn from that era. Lately I have been thinking that I don’t care enough to miss the porn classics of that era though. After all, if he was comfortable being in the movie, I have no reason to be uncomfortable seeing him. Porn is an art form just like any other and I’d absolutely go see a different type of movie featuring a relative. (Well, OK, to be fully honest, I have a relative who produces documentaries and I only watch the interesting ones.)
