I was trolling around MySpace last night and came across the profile of someone in town I know who, among other things, is a stripper. That, in and of itself, is not extraordinary -- in the gay community its not unusual to know people who strip, have done/do porn, escorting, etc. In many circles, there's a certain amount of celebrity to it. I consider myself to be a pretty progressive guy and I do my best not to judge -- honestly, I know quite a few people in those industries and it doesn't make much difference to me. Anyway, in this person's profile he talks about his boyfriend and how much he loves him, which is great and all. But that part made me stop and think -- would I be able to deal with a boyfriend who strips/does porn? As I've said before, I'm a pretty progressive person. I've seen enough and read enough to know that work in the sex industries is just that -- work. Having watched a couple of documentaries on the making of gay porn, it was clearly one of the least erotic things I could imagine. That said, am I progressive enough to say honestly that I'd be able to deal with a boyfriend in that area? HELL NO. I'm a Scorpio. On my bad days I can get... shall we say, a trifle possessive? I wouldn't care if my boyfriend had that history, as long as it was in the past, but I'm just curious as to what other people think -- feel free to vote or leave a comment.
