Moron of the Week

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?

  • I think the pilot should have called in sick that day. :)

    I can’t believe what some people do and watch for entertainment.

    Sheesh.

    What a way to join the Mile High Club. I read about this last week, and was really surprised by everyone who was involved in the filming, much less how they did it in the air while they were, umm, I guess going down. This guy’s stunt got him on more then one show.
    One thing you failed to mention that the whole video came to light when the parents of some teenagers contacted the authorities because they found their kids watching the porn tape. The Parents were upset over it being available on the internet. Yes, the Parents were upset that the sex act of two people doing it in the air was available for their kids to watch on the internet.
    What is this world coming to that you can’t get film doing it in the air and post it on the internet for everyone to see.

  • NeoConDon

    So who’s the moron here…???

  • Jen

    All I can think about is how they pulled off the landing! Ouch! So, did it get Howard Stern’s attention?

  • Jane

    @Leo It is unfortunate that the video was posted online and that kids were watching it. But there’s nothing we can do about that.

    As I sat here looking at the picture, I was trying to think of a funny one-liner, but couldn’t think of anything. Oh well. LOL.

  • I agree with Leo: What a way to join the Mile High Club.

  • Timmy

    I agree with Don, who is the moron? As for the video being online, who cares. That is what the Internet is. If tomorrow, all the porn sites on the Internet were shut down, there would only be one site left…wwwdotbringbacktheporndotcom. Get over it prudes!

    YAY PORN!

  • I only have sex when I’m drunk. So adding jumping from a plane to drunk sex would be a terrible idea. For me, anyway. But, hey, to each his own.

  • Ahahahahah. Hahahhahaa!!! AAHAHAHA. The lengths people will go through for a little bit of fame. It never ceases to amaze me. Reckless and stupid, that’s my vote.

  • Jake

    That picture is awesome. His face is hilarious. And what about hers? Is it pure passion or pure terror. LMAO.

  • Zig

    This is awesome! Who cares about going to jail…wtf? I want to know how he got a receptionist at his job to have sex on tape. Who is the bigger moron him or the woman who volunteered to have her junk broadcast across the internet.

    From these posts, I can recognize who watches porn on the net… Leo, you probably sit in frount of the computer all night with one hand on the/your mouse and… Don, I know that’s how you roll…

    Timmy, moron. It’s Yeah, Porn! What is yay?

    The kid in the foreground in the pic looks like he is shooting his load!

  • Zig

    Just like the Tootsie Roll commercial…How many drinks does it take to get to the center of Meredith?

  • Timmy

    Zig,

    If I wanted to say “yeah, porn” I would have typed “yeah, porn”

    DIAF, window licker!

  • Wow…. wayyyy too much if you ask me!
