If that porn star next to the keg is coming on
to you, beware: two minutes of fun could ruin
Rolling Stone's September 18, 2003 issue
does an expose on Shane's World, a porn film
company from Van Nuys, California, that gets
college kids drunk and films them in very
compromising sexual situations. UC Santa
Barbara, Indiana University and Arizona State
University have been the initial targets.
The scenario: A van pulls up at a
seven-bedroom former frat house located two blocks
from the university. Three security guards monitor
an overflow crowd of beer-swilling students.
Starting with an initial top-secret guest list of
400 people, the party planner has carefully
whittled the crowd down to 150 photogenic students,
giving guests the closely guarded addreess only
minutes before the party. Provided they don't pass
out or get bounced for fighting, a select few will
get to star in tonight's "gonzo porn"
The van door slides open, and out bounds Calli
Cox, perkly blond porn star. She grabs a megaphone
and yells, "The party has arrived!" The crowd
roars, and the video cameras light Calli's way as
she and her co-stars strut into the barren living
room - no furniture, just a keg of beer, black
tarps covering the walls and a sea of dirty-dancing
drunksl. When asked what he expects tonight, Ben, a
21 year-old chemistry major, says, "A little
fucking lesbian actoin, a little double-sided
Calli is quickly surrounded by a screaming crowd
of drunks. She whips out her bullhorn and asks for
volunters to strip down to their underwear. This is
the modus operandi to loosen up the crowd with
silly party games, humble a few guys, then use them
as performers. Three come forward. Calli instructs
them to strap on diapers and suck on the baby
bottles and pacifiers.
After a few seconds of highly subjectiv
adjudication, she decides that Hagen, a 21 year-old
UCSB film major, makes the best bady of the
bunch. His price: A blow job. And so it goes.
More stunts. More prizes. More embarrassing moments
on video tape - FOREVER.
Said Buck, one of the victims of the plan,
"I wanted to go to law school and maybe be in
politics. But what community would want me to
represent them now? For years I will have
problems, all beacuse of a two-minute mistake."
Asked if he has any advice for the California
students fresh on the reel, Buck says, "I wish I
could warn those kids about what this is going to
do to their life. I wish I come have my
anonymity back." He adds, "Without showing any
ethics, Shane's world has done severe damage to my
life and many others' for their own gain."
Talk about not taking responsibility for what he
freely and willingly did. If he really had wanted
to go into politics, he wouldn't have gotten within
a mile of that party. How many other things in life
is he going to blame on others? It's time to
wake up to reality.
So, be forwarned. If you came to college to do
something with your life, know that whatever you do
on that video will always be around. Your families
are always going to know, and wherever you go and
work, it's only a matter of time until those people
find out too."
