When did it become super cool to flaunt your sexuality online -- for free?

I've recently read an article about Facebook turning girls into porn stars. Well, if the social web site is going to be making porn stars, someone needs to grab a video camera and pay these girls.

If you're going to be flashing breasts, doing sexy trick and giving up the goodies, at least get paid for it.

According to Your Tango, there are scores of girls willing to do it for free on Facebook.

Does the idea of having their photos seen by everyone they know compel girls without hesitation to stick their tongues in each other's ears and give each other lap dances? Is simulating fellatio equivalent to a peace sign in Facebook land?

A piece on yesterday's Open Salon by Mary T. Kelly, entitled "Facebook: Home to Wannabe Porn Stars," has many of these same questions at its heart. In it, Kelly examines hundreds of photos that are posted in the Facebook albums of her daughter's friends (yes, that's right, her daughter's friends "friended" her, knowing she'd be able to see all their trampy pictures). She then identifies some of the popular porn-like poses: the breast grab, the bump and grind, and of course, the infamous and perplexing tongue between the "V sign" fingers. Finally, she expresses exasperation ("I’m no spring chicken, and I’m pretty sure I know what the V sign is, pretty sure, but WHY?").

How long will if be before some porn producer starts rounding these girls up and putting them on video. At least Facebook will let them know who's of age, since they have their birthdays posted on their profiles.

The Internet has brought kids into a hypersexualized world that parents need to seriously monitor.
