I’m back and apologize to all of you for my brief absence. And what better way to make my return than with a “Moron of the Week Award.”
Well…apparently if you’re looking for a good time, you need to travel no farther than Bakersfield, CA. According to an MSNBC article, “The Federal Aviation Administration says it will look into a videotaped skydiving sex stunt to determine if the pilot might have been distracted during the incident over Kern County.”
The man at the center of the story is Alex “Voodoo” Torres. He is a part-time skydiving instructor at Skydive Taft and also a porn star. Torres apparently convinced the skydiving company’s receptionist, Hope Howell, to be his partner. “The video shows the two having sex in a plane before jumping out in tandem and continuing the act midair.” Torres then posted the video on his blog. The stunt was apparently done because Torres was attempting to get the attention of shock-jock, Howard Stern. Torres told the pilot it was ok to do such a thing and the three of them came in before the office opened to shoot the scene.
Their stunt, however, could be a problem in the FAA’s eyes. Spokesman, Ian Gregor, said, “Anyone who allows an activity to occur that could affect his or her ability to concentrate on flying the aircraft or could result in the pilot being physically jostled or lose control of the aircraft could constitute a violation of federal aviation regulations.” For his efforts, Torres was fired and the company is investigating Howell. So what do you think? Fun, crazy and sexy? Or stupid and dangerous?
