I recently got an email from a friend I hadn’t spoken to in many years. I actually nearly forgot we were ever friends because during the time in my life we were friends I was out to lunch on goofballs. His name is Harry Weiss and he has his own porn PR company. Back when I knew him he was with a porn company called VCA and I was pretending to be the managing editor of Big Brother Magazine in my spare time, when not drooling all over myself drunk and on drugs. Back then the smut business was making the transition from VHS to DVD. VHS were becoming obsolete and had basically lost all street value. There was a time when I could trade 20 VHS tapes for a full bottle of rainbow pharmaceuticals. By the time I met Harry that time had long past.
I explained to him, in a distressed junkie tone, sweating, hands shaking, “I need the good stuff, Harry. I know you got it. Please. I gotta have it. I NEED DVDs.” He took pity on me and always made sure to bring me DVDs to “review” (i.e. trade for drugs or drug money). Now with a few years of semi-sobriety under my belt I wasn’t sure if I should thank him for all the good times he made possible back then or cuss him out for empowering me.
In his email he said he worked for a number of porn companies and could get me tons of DVDs again but the thing that really jumped off the screen was when he told me he could get me sex toys from Pipedream.com. Honestly, we have a closet, basement and attic full of sex toys that people send us that never get taken out the box. Do you want some? Let me know. No, it wasn’t the dildos and dongs and vibrators that Pipe Dream offers that turned me on—it was the for-real sexy TOYS like at Toys R Us. These are just a half dozen amazing items I had never seen before and am happy to have in my life now:
