“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Something I learned: #85856YF

So I learned the other day at a luncheon what a "fluffer" is.
Don't know? Neither did I.
In the words of the woman who told me: "It's the person they bring in on a set of a porn movie to, well, to get the male actor ... prepared."
As in "fluff" him up so he can perform.
And then I had to wonder: In these days of Viagra, is a fluffer even needed?
I mean, with budget cutbacks happening all over the place, wouldn't a fluffer be the first to lose her/his job because she/he is superfluous? A pill is a lot cheaper than a full-time fluffer. (And just how much do these people get paid?)
Outmoded and unnecessary because of advances in medical technology.
Really ... is any job safe anymore?

In the world of retail, a fluffer is someone who constantly rotates through the store folding sweaters and restacking merchandise. I wonder if in these days of multitasking, they'll combine the two kinds of fluffers?

Well, now that certainly might attract a large male clientele: "Come buy a sweater and get a _____ at the same time!"
