So my first reaction when I saw this story about ESPN Producer Neil Goldberg was to think back on similar peeping Toms and public masturbators that have been caught doing their thing in the past few months. Like this guy who wasn't doing anything YET, but was clearly suspicious, or this guy who was actually rubbing his junk on some poor girl on the N-train. Whenever I see stories like this I can't help but think about how much high-quality porn is so readily available on the Interent. And it blows my mind that these guys would go to the lengths that they do, with all the associated risk of getting caught, being embarrassed, arrested, losing your family and job, and basically having your life ruined in every imaginable way. So how is it possible that so many men who are otherwise leading normal, healthy lives choose to stare this risk in the face and then attempt to cover it with their J-O-nnaise? There's no way they are unaware or unwilling to tap into the plethora of debauchery that is but a Google away. Is there?
The only conceivable answer is one that just may scare me right off the web for good: Is it possible that these poor bastards have "used up" their appetite for Internet porn, and now find themselves checking the time and yawing at the idea of consenting adults??
I certainly hope this isn't the case, because the Internet and its barrage of flesh-at-your-fingertips are still a fairly new part of human life. Imagine all the guys out there that have been watching that shit since age 11! There's no telling what level of craziness they've worked up to now. Sooner or later, the bubble's going to pop and there will be a GLOBAL PANDEMIC of lunatics running around out there perched on the windowsills of innocent showerers and snaking cameras through the peepholes at their favorite announcers' hotel rooms; a veritable zombie-invasion of ruined freaks that just can't get off by watching porn anymore and are forced to wander the Earth looking for open windows to climb into so they can eat your underwear.
Hide ya kids, hide ya wife, etc.
