Came across this article Penthouse Interview With L. Ron Hubbard Jr. by way of metafilter. It’s an old interview, dating from June 1983. It’s also a long article (no doubt divided by images in the original but here it’s just plain text) but well worth a read. Now … remember a few years ago there was that thing in the news about Tom “curing the world with every toothy smile” Cruise being gay ? (    ) well in that Penthouse interview is this line:
You have complete control of someone if you have every detail of his sex life and fantasy life on record.
Now that’s one way of looking at life, it’s problems and the ‘cures’ that scientology (note the small ‘s’) offers … let’s say you were worried about someone gaining complete control of you, would you allow them to know every detail of your sex life ? Might you even go so far as to give very different public displays of any sexual preferences so as to throw people off the scent ? Maybe I should be careful not to let on about my sexual proclivities lest any scientology creeps happen through my village and try to control me … damn, that’s the donkey porn being thrown out then 🙂
