I'm unwrapping porn today and the strangest thing is happening. People have started lingering by the counter after coming up from the basement (where we have all the porn that's for sale, over 6000 titles), asking if we're going to get new titles. I tell them the truth, that all the new titles have already been presented in the "new"-section downstairs. They eye the box next to me. I tell them that these movies are old titles that have already been shown downstairs. They linger. I tell them that they can feel free to look through it and they throw themselves at it as if it was the holy grail of porn. As if this one box will hold something much greater than what they were able to find downstairs.

They then buy the movies they brought up from the basement. As I told them, these movies are old.

What attraction does new porn titles hold anyways? Have they seen all the old ones?

I don't really know. Maybe they hoped that this box would be hold the perfect porn or something?

Well, the quest for the perfect porn has gone on for as long as humanity has existed. The Egyptians made some headway, but the inherent difficulty of working with sandstone held them back... I'd say it's something akin to the holy grail; No one can agree to exactly what it is, many have claimed to have found it only to be exposed as frauds and so on. I would say that it is laughable to think one would find it in a sleazy porn shop, but then again that could be the exact reason it has never been found...

Well, if I see it, I'll be sure to hold on to it. Or maybe only the eyes of the innocent can behold the perfect porn and see it for what it really is? And I, slut that I am, is unable to recognize it?

Come to think of it, that's probably why the customers can't find it either...

That's probably it. Problem is that anyone who watches more than one or two pornos no longer count as innocent...

Or spend enough time on the internet...

Gleder meg til bursdagen din! Hva ønsker du deg?

Aren't those two pretty synonymous?

Og jeg har selfølgelig ingen konkrete ønsker utover en hyggelig kveld og fred på jord.

Vel jeg nekter å hjelpe til med fred på jorden-tingen, så jeg får vri hjernen etter noe annet.

Did you not know?


Workers always hide and withhold the best stuff, and keep it boxes behind the counter. (At least that seems to be the popular myth.)

I got the same thing with video games when I worked retail. They would examine every title for that one game that would meet their needs. I would ask them why they wanted to look so bad, and they would tell me that they thought maybe the manager, or someone was hiding something special in there. They were usually regulars too. You would think that they knew better, but they always wanted to check, and would get mad the few times I had to refuse them.

Re: Did you not know?


But why would we be hiding it? It makes no sense. The object for us is to sell the movies, not to store them? *shakes head*

Re: Did you not know?


It just gives them hope for a brief moment. I think some of them just can not find exactly what they are looking for, and they need to believe they still have a chance to find it. Their wanting of something overrides the logic of the situation.

Really? With 6000 other titles to search through, they feel the need to glomp the box in an attempt to find /more stuff/? REALLY? *shakes head*

Thanks for posting. It reminds me of why I'm so glad my boyfriend gets his from LANs XD
