Softcore Porn Readily Available In Olympic Village

Just when we thought you couldn’t get any dumber, Beijing Olympics, you go and do something like this - and totally redeem yourself! All you incoming Olympians better make sure to bring along your American Express cards - there will be porn at the Summer Games!

(Yeeeeeeeeeaaaah!!!!)

Softcore porn, at least - which, if memory serves correctly, is the better kind since it simply consists of boobs, a tiny amount of hair down there, and nary a disgusting genital in sight.

And best of all, because of the odd censorship policies of Beijing, Olympians will also not have to waste time pretending to be smart by reading the BBC website, which continues to be blocked.

From the UK’s DAILY TELEGRAPH:

The blocking of politically sensitive sites, including those dealing with Tibet and Taiwan, remained in place today despite government assurances that censorship would be lifted during the Games.

The ban is in contrast to the more liberal attitude of the Games village bookshop, which sells erotic books featuring provocative pictures of naked women with titles such as “Drawing book for the Nude”.

Such books used to be a common feature of provincial airport bookshelves in China, normally nestling in sections entitled “Art”, but have gradually disappeared in the last few years under the more puritan regime of President Hu Jintao.

Readers can also choose between illustrated volumes of Chairman Mao’s poetry, the memoirs of pioneers of hybrid rice development, or from a large collection of Agatha Christie novels.

No offense to Chairman Mao, the rice developers, or the estate of Agatha Christie, but when softcore porn is a ready and available option, there’s little reason to even mention these other choices. Party on, Olympians!
