Sometimes it is hard to tell the real news from the Onion.  This is in the category of "real news", believe it or not.  From this article:
Flynt and Francis concede the industry itself is in no financial danger — DVD sales have slipped over the past year, but Web traffic has continued to grow.

But the industry leaders said the issue is a nation in need. "People are too depressed to be sexually active," Flynt said in the statement. "This is very unhealthy as a nation. Americans can do without cars and such but they cannot do without sex."
I don't know what to say.  Even though they are presumably just making a point, I still don't know what to say.

Reminds me of a joke my daughter just told me...

What are the sexiest animals in the barnyard?

That would be

Brown chicken brown cow

(say it mushed together with a bit of 'wah wah' added in)

I took this as a joke, kind of pointing out that all the other industries were begging for money.
