The perils of pornography in high definition

Yup.  Apparently, many performers in the porn industry aren’t exactly embracing high-definition technology, where every wrinkle of cellulite becomes, well, obvious:

“The biggest problem is razor burn,” said Stormy Daniels, an actress, writer and director.

Ms. Daniels is also a skeptic. “I’m not 100 percent sure why anyone would want to see their porn in HD,” she said.

Ooooo-kay.  And then there’s this:

Jesse Jane, one of the industry’s biggest stars, plans to go under the knife next month to deal with one side effect of high-definition. The images are so clear that Ms. Jane’s breast implants, from an operation six years ago, can be seen bulging oddly on screen.

“I’m having my breasts redone because of HD,” she said.

The stretch marks on Ms. Jane from seven years ago when she gave birth to her son are also more apparent. But she deals with those blemishes in a simpler way: by liberal use of tanning spray.

I’m not well-versed in the erotic arts, so I have no opinion on the whole high definition porn issue.  I just brought it up because I just love that quote: "I’m having my breasts redone because of HD".  It’s one of those sentences that — if I lived to be one hundred years old, I would never have expected to hear.
