on avatar sex and basketball sized breast enlargements
Oh my giddy aunt. I'm watching a show called Taboo on National Geographic which proves there is some originality and bravardo left on TV.
At present the show features a "very happy family man" from Florida called Kevin who is part of a virtual game called Real Life in which the guy is the avatar Stroker.
Shortly after taking the kids to the park and maybe before dinner, Kevin (or rather Stroker) will be on the computer having virtual sex with a female avatar controlled by some woman from Texas.
Oh and Stroker even has sex with his daughters in Real Life.
Now his wife may put up with this but call me Victorian and all that but I'm thinking Kevin's a very sick bunny.
Now the show has moved on to a woman called Shayla who has had so many cosmetic procedures that she's had ribs banged out to make her slimmer. And she's had so many breast procedures her breasts are now as big as basketballs.
This is perhaps easier to explain away than Kevin's issues. It's thought Shayla has BDD (Body Dysmorphic Disorder) which is a type of chronic mental illness in which you can't stop thinking about a flaw with your appearance, in Shayla's case her no longer so flat chest.
I didn't like that segment so much as it entailed gory operations.
Oh and how sick is this? A woman from Russia who want longer legs has checked into a hospital to have them broken and stretched.
"I think I will be far more confident after my legs are longer and I can get married," she said.
So that would be totally worth the pain, the risk of amputation and three months in bed for an extra inch for $26,000 then?
This wasn't at all entertaining. Now we're on to a lady boy from Thailand whose getting himself a new face. It's called facial feminization. Suddenly it strikes me that Taboo is featuring too many gory surgical procedures. This isn't cricket mate. What happened to the woman on the trailer who has a sexual obsession with her automobile. Or the grown man who likes to wear a diaper?
Or, for the matter, the lusty Welshman who likes to get on his welly boots and race up the hillside to give his sheep the willies?
Time for a spot of taboo of my own. There's a doughnut in the kitchen that has my name on it.
How did you spend your Wednesday night?
