Seth Rogen's Porn Admissions
Requiem For a Paper Bag is a new book Found magazine put together with various notables discussing their favorite found objects. I did a piece for it about a plug-in Joe camel I grabbed off the street and after a lot of screaming, I finally found the check they owed me in the mail!
Anyway, the book starts off with Seth Rogen (the writer/actor/producer with credits from Knocked Up to Pineapple Express) talking about a porn rag he once found and how it changed his life.
It seems when Seth was 11, he was walking around a park in Vancouver and came upon a dirty magazine on the ground, all crumpled and rained on (among other things). Little Seth was intrigued enough to take the publication home, where he dried it out and studied it with at least as much scholarly devotion as he gave his school assignments. "It all seemed much more surgical than I'd ever imagined it would be," remembers Seth. "I saw the insides of body parts I had never even seen the outsides of before!"
Seth was so astounded by the biological amazingness of it all that he admits, "I don't even think I jacked off at that point--I would go to my room and just stare."
But here's the real shocker. He ends his article by divulging, "I still look at porno from time to time."
