It began with why? Why I am addicted to watching the movement of a women’s backside? Who is Hottentot Venus? Why are women voluntarily stripping their clothes, exposing their thongs, and selling their private parts to “Girls Gone Wild?” Did Halle receive an Oscar solely because of her performance or were we celebrating the hedonism of her sex scene? Who is Sacha Fierce? Why are artist creating songs for the strip clubs instead of the dance floor? What is the true reason Snoop Dogg went into porn and why did Janet Jackson purposely have a wardrobe malfunction? Is the sex tape the sole reason Kim Kardashian became a household name. Why are the “Pussycat Dolls” in cohorts with the producers of “Tiaras and Toddlers” and how in the hell did Miley Cyrus become the top internet search phrase for the year 2013? What do these questions all have in common?
