Debbie Did Dallas

Debbie Did Dallas back in the ’70’s but now a whole new generation of baby boomers who probably were too busy protesting to even enjoy the pleasures of the famed porn film are doing Petra, and the Terra Cotta Warriors and the Wall. It’s a kind of travel porn in which people fuck the Seven Wonders of the World. At least that’s what it sounds like. You do the Taj Mahal. You do Kilamanjaro. You do Machu Picchu. You do Stonehenge, You do Victoria Falls. You do the Pyraminds, providing they don’t end up doing you.. It’s a virtual gang bang of history. You do the Forbidden City in an exchange program where a bunch of your Chinese counterparts does the Empire State. Then you all meet up the half way point and do the Galapagos and the Fjords. You have always wanted to do Antarctica, but not as much as the Grand Canyon or the Great Barrier Reef. All of this doing is one way to combat the problem of mortality. What better way to deal with the limited amount of time you have left on earth than to fit in as many sites as possible. It’s unbearable to think that you might leave the earth without seeing the Terra Cotta Warriors for example, though there’s no way to store up the spoils. They won’t do you any good once you’ve departed.
