Adult film actress August Ames was found dead on Tuesday, according to police in southern California, with those close to her suggesting she may have taken her own life.
Well, if Hollywood has been run as a "straight-up prostitution ring" for years, if not many decades, then that means that every single actress, and perhaps many male actors, we see on-screen is nothing but a prostitute, who gained their fame and fortune by giving sexual favors in exchange for a job and career advancement.
I place the blame every bit as much on these women, as on the scumbags that propositioned them, because they, and they alone, accepted the proposition and took the payment. The proposition was made, but it was the woman, or man, who chose to accept or reject it.
I am also absolutely certain that some actors and actresses were so hungry and greedy to advance their careers that they instigated it, and offered themselves up for sale.
It is the greed, hunger, and desire of aspiring actors and actresses that makes them available for easy exploitation. If very few would be willing to make their "deal with the devil", then it would rarely occur. It is pervasive because the willingness to abandon all morals and sell their souls for a glamorous job, fame, and fortune is also pervasive. If none were willing, it could never happen, and Hollywood execs would either have to respect their employees, or watch their industry die, for lack of actors and actresses to fill the roles.
But, the reality is, that for every one that would reject their filthy propositions, there are a thousand "wannabes" lined up behind them that will accept it, and laugh, all the way to the bank. So, these poor exploited actors and actresses will get little to no sympathy from me for their moral failure to refuse. Nor will the corrupt Hollywood execs escape culpability. Their relationship is 100% symbiotic, with one being at least as as responsible as the other. They NEED each other, and both know it.
