Courtney Stodden is fucking hilarious. What is so hilarious about her? The sexy “rawr” faces she constantly does. The sexy lip-licking. All of her sexy affectations that when taken together in full doses add up to being repulsive. Her spiritual kin is Paz de la Huerta, whose constant insistence on nudity is equally funny. Paz’s never-ending sexiness is camp. The performance of lustiness is camp. Strippers are camp. There is real sexuality, natural sexuality, and then there is traditional porn: artificial, extreme, fantastical. People are turned on precisely because it is so unnatural, because it involves sex that is hard to replicate, out of the realm of most humans’ reach. A lot of people also want to fuck cartoons.
Molly Lambert! Good day over at Grantland. See also: “The Internet assists the voyeuristic desire we have to observe other people, to imagine other lives, even if those people are imagining their lives as well.” !!
