CGiii Comment

These men are - quite literally - getting f&*ked to death.

Yes, yes...it's an addiction...and, like all other addictions...should be treated like an addiction. But, and it has to be said...many [not all] addicts actually want to be addicts. It's a grim reality...but, it is a fact. Now, the psychs will say that this desire to be an addict is a [treatable] condition in itself...whatever, the vicious circle keeps on spinning and spinning. Cause for concern? Absolutely.

Men - young and old - are abusing themselves and exploiting the medical system...all in the name of better and longer sex! Hey...to Hell with HIV transmission, there are pills for that...let's keep on and on and on...f&*king! And...spreading, not just our legs...but, HIV and everything else.

Hey kid...wanna try something new?

It's difficult to feel anything [empathic] towards these irresponsible, dick-for-brains, a-holes. Yet, Terrence Crawford gives it a go...and, [surprisingly] succeeds. These mens' stories are a mixed bag of immaturity, craving and regret. They are all aware of their problem and that that problem will never go away...many will sink, most will flounder, few will swim. They are all here...and, by god, does your heart go out to them...especially one lovely-and-lost young man, unless he receives a remarkable intervention, his fate is already sealed. It's utterly heartbreaking...to witness.

So...what's the answer? Sadly, there is no answer. Prison and rehab don't work. Let's face it people...nothing permanent works. Support groups and therapies help...but don't cure. Tough love usually results in death...the vicious circle keeps on spinning, aided and abetted by the porn industry and the synth dealers...both dealing in synthetic dreams of synthetic sex to synthetic lives.

This is a wake-up call...the American dream may be replaced by a dangerous, wholly artificial one. Watch and be horrified.
