New York Lawyer brings us this intriguing and oh-so-revealing headline: CLE, Not T&A: NY State Bar Cancels Porn Star's Talk.
Yes, you read that correctly. Apparently the Family Law Section of the New York State Bar Association had booked a retired porn star to speak at its summer meeting. Yes, it's true. I kid you not.
What's that you say? You're wondering what she was scheduled to speak about? Well, my friend, that's nearly as funny as the headline. From the article:
The topic of Ms. Steele's planned talk was to have been "Sex and love - making your time away from the office really count and how to not wind up as one of your clients."...
"It was basically an entertainment presentation at 9:15 one of the nights," he said. "Her spiel is about relationships and making the best of your relationships."
Sounds like a perfectly reasonable presentation for a bar association meeting, doesn't it? Doesn't it?!?!
Especially coming directly from the mouth of a Miss "Sydnee Steele", who had previously starred in more than 200 porn films and billed herself as an "internationally published author, speaker and sexual empowerment consultant."
Do I ever wish I was making this up. Do.I.Ever.
