Porntastic Idea

It hit me as I settled in for "Watching Porn" last night. The show I'd just seen, "Thanks for the Scabies, Jerkface," contained a reference to porn too: performer Dan Bernitt's college roommate was apparently something of an aficionado.

My critic pals and I chuckle every year about how we all somehow manage to cover the shows with "Sex" in the title. So I wondered last night, how many Fringe shows contain references to porn, even in passing? Shouldn't they all band together and create a group discount or promo of sorts, for porn-curious people like me? There'd be Route 1, Route 2, and the Porn Express. A small discount from all these groups would ensure better attendance, great word of mouth, and most likely a certain amount of social networking too. That's what they call it now, right? Social networking?
