I like porn but...
OK, I never saw Mary Carey in a porn film till after I saw her on "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew", probably a mistake for my appreciation of her sexual performance.
I have some serious doubt about the ethics of Dr Drew Pinsky televising any medical treatment, and about the ability of addicts to give informed consent for him to do so, but I do think he is trying to effect the best outcome he can for his patients in this situation.
So Mary Carey, having been treated for alcohol abuse, swore off porn. She never did quite get it that she couldn't keep drinking, and kept trying to weasel a way to not give up the sauce.
So, not surprisingly, she had to fall back on porn to make a buck. That in itself is a little sad, but I could live with it. One of my favorite porn stars, Christy Canyon has just returned from her 6th or 7th retirement. What really distresses me is that Mary decided to make a porn parity of her treatment. Had she no respect at all for the effort that was made on her behalf, or no concern for legal risk this might put her in? I should know better, she's an addict, of course not.
Now all of that aside, the sex, with the exception of one scene, was fairly dull. Mary herself stuck to girl-girl which I could care less about. Penny Flame (later a much more successful Patient in "Celebrity Sex Rehab") wins the prize for most ironic performance. The only scene that got a rise out of me was a MMF threesome, ruined in the end by the actors pretending to pass a coke vial during the sex.
I guess I'm getting old, I don't go for porn just for the sheer taboo-breaking nastiness anymore, if I ever did. I like to watch people have sex that they seem to enjoy, I don't need to see anybody spit on, hurt, or verbally abused. If a performer finds that porn is bad for them, I support their decision to stop, no matter how much I may have enjoyed their performances.
For another view on leaving porn check out Penny Flame's blog "Becoming Jennie". Maybe someday Mary Carey can become Mary Beth again.
