Computers have changed our lives. We can "hang out" with friends on the other side of the world, do business with people we've never even met by email or video conference, manage our finances from thousands of miles away in an instant and work from home, from a train station, from an aeroplane or from the beach (if you have to).

Jerry Barnett

Female pornstars can't win: they are labelled victims, and if they try to defend what they do for a living, this is taken as proof of just how 'oppressed' they are.
