always look so happy
when they’re fucking.
They look so happy
that it makes me happy too.
And I know that people don’t
think much of pornstars.
And it’s too bad that
they’re all sex addicts.
But I just can’t feel bad
for someone who can find
that much joy in anything.
I don’t know how to feel
that happy.
So good for them.

    1. they are. but even acted happiness is better than filling out paperwork and not being able to force a smile. idk. this was kinda a weird post


  1. Wrong Carl! I know a male porn star and he quit because he was bored and got a job driving a truck! True story! He says he’s much happier just hangin’ loose! Porn is all in your mind anyway…if all you do is drink, smoke and fuck hen your real life is as close to a porn star as it gets…so you should be jumping around in Joy like bugs bunny! (BTW, I know your name is not Carl but that is an expression so old I forgot where it came from! LOL!) Cya!

  2. So true. Funny but true. I wonder if they go to work like ….” ugh,, I hate working with that person” It would be super super awkward. Like personally I can’t stand having to go into a morning meeting with some people…. I couldn’t image being annoyed at someone and having to … you know….. still “work” with them haha great post, funny.

    1. thanks Joseph. im sure that happens. they’re people just like us, just working like the rest of us, and dealing with people that they don’t want to… thinking about it like that almost makes it more funny to me haha

  3. I had not received any of your posting updates and had to fix an “option….” I thought perhaps you had blocked me for just being another asshole out of India. Porn happiness… I actually met a woman 1.5 years ago on Match.com who is on Pornhub. And we’re not talking an “amateur”. She is rich as fuck (divorce settlement) and happy as fuck. And loves to fuck. (And writes some rather decent poetry herself.) I’ll send you a link to private email if you want to see the real deal. For all those above commenting and pontificating on the “happiness” of porn stars, I would have to ask these people how many porn stars do you actually know and interact with???? That’s what I thought. NONE. So, zip it and go to church.


  4. I don’t know either how to be that happy.. lol maybe, for some people, happiness just doesn’t come easily.. But I have to say this, I love it when your heart speaks in between the lines of your poems.. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me. But whatever haha take care, Lou! You’re awesome xx

  5. Actually I think we all learn how to LOOK happy whether we are or not. We have an awful lot of masks we hide behind. Happiness can be one of them. I feel the passion behind your thoughts in this poem, though. I like it a lot! And thanks for the follow. I look forward to seeing you around the blogs!
