By the side of my computer desk are plastic crates full of trannies, 35mm slides in layman speak. They have been sat there for years collecting dust so while running the vacuum clearer over them in a moment of cleaning madness I had a quick lucky dip. Who the hell are these girls! I spent the rest of the day trying to recall their names and how I had found/booked them but I’m still not sure in most cases. I could spend a bit of time reading through the old paperwork to jog my memory but it would only depress me thinking back to the early days when snapping a pretty amateur model in nothing but her knickers was a rare and exciting adventure. Oh well back to more recent times and a collection of models in their knickers who may have caused by heart to miss a beat but I truly can’t remember.
So the age verification systems due to be enforced on all UK porn sites in April as part of the Digital Economy Act is to be delayed until later in the year so that further “public consultation” can take place. Good job. I’ve not heard anybody who has a clue how it is going to work and that includes the overpaid members of the quango charged with setting it up and policing it.
Surprisingly I’ve decided to be a bit more proactive and check out the available talent earlier this year. Not much seems to have changed from recent times though. Suitable fresh faces are thin on the ground and are either too far away or too expensive. Having an extensive if one dimensional back catalogue of snaps to post means I could go a few years without arranging a new shoot and that looks likely unless there is a dramatic improvement in the situation.
