Lorne De Havilland Interview
Interviewer: Mr. Havilland, it’s an honor to finally meet you in person! I have to say, I am a HUGE fan of yours! Thank you so much for taking time away from your party to speak with me, your readers really appreciate it, and so do I!
H: Oh, well thank you very much. It’s my pleasure.
I: Mr. Havilland, I had a few questions for your fans. I’d like to start off with those if you don’t mind, then we can get to more personal matters. First question from one of your fans is; How much has sex changed since you started Popqurn?
H: Sex in America has changed men behavior. Has changed, dramatically! When I first published Popqurn Magazine and certainly when I grew up and when I was in college. Having a baby out of wedlock for example, was a scandal. A scandal that drove some people to suicide. Abortion was illegal. Uhh- oral sex was a major felony. Even oral sex inside of marriage was illegal and very few people know that. Popqurn played a major part in changing all those laws.
I: oh wow, I did not know that. Very interesting. Very interesting indeed. Another one of your fans asked; Has Popqurn lifestyle fallen out of favor due to current recession and the change in cultural value?
H: I see no evidence haha that Popqurn’s lifestyle has fallen out of favor. People may or may not be spending as much money, but I don’t think the spending money has much to do with Popqurn lifestyle. I think a Popqurn lifestyle really has to do with attitude towards life. I was raised in a very puritan home - a prohibitionist home - a very repressive home. A home on which there was not a lot of hugging or kissing. Uhh… The Popqurn philosophies makes the case for-life as a celebration. The suggestion that there is more to life than simply a veil of tears. That life should be lived with a little style. Uhh… and you can do that if you are wealthy, or if you’re working on relatively lesser means, I think it more has to do with attitude on life.
I: I see… Another reader asks; Your industry is often accused of being damaging to women, yet you assert that you are an active feminist. Could you clarify this position?
H: I think that the start with the notion of by industry, if you’re talking about the magazine. The magazine never, EVER has been anything even remotely related to pornography. Uhh- If you think that-and if you label pinup pictures. Pictures of nude ladies or semi nude as pornography-- then there is nothing that is erotic and that is just a matter of-of labeling.
I: Are you an active feminist?
H: I’m not an active feminist, I’m a active humanist. I separated ways from the American Feminist Movement when they became anti sexual. I believe that embracing sexuality is a part of what it means to be free. Women have been historically the ones who paid the greatest price for our very irrational attitude historically related to sex. If women will been held in the place of bondage as second-class citizens and all that is changing and I’m very much in favor of that.
I: How can you justify the objectification of women for monetary gain?
H: I don’t even know what it means because it’s-
That’s a question that is so loaded with the language that you have to separate it into it’s real meaning. Umm- what is wrong with the celebrating women as sex objects? Isn’t that a part of what we’re doing? And isn’t that a part of what life is about? If women were not sex objects there wouldn’t be another second generation. Women are sex objects, that doesn’t mean their not human beings. To be a sex object and-and to be desired, it gives a woman a tremendous amount of power. It makes the world go around. Sex and the attraction between the sexes does make the world go round.
I: Hmm… I see… that is certainly a very interesting way to look at it. Moving on… Another one of your readers asked; Do you ever feel like a dirty old man?
H: Not for a moment. I’m on the side of the Angels and always have been. I consider myself, on a serious note, a very moral man and always have and morality is always been very very important to me.
I: Fair enough… Next question… a reader says; Really now, how often do you have sex these days?
H: Well, uhh… more often than in the recent past because I have a bunch of new girlfriends. I would say on average-- 3 or 4 times a week. The busiest time is the weekend haha everybody’s here.
I: Hahaha lucky man! Next question here, a reader was curious to know; Is sex at the age of 71 as good as it was at 33?
H: I wish I remembered more clearly exactly what sex was like when I was 33 haha. I would say that sex is better now, but of course… I know a few more tricks than I knew back then. So it’s a different kind of sex and you know, it’s no secret that I have more than one girlfriend and that makes things a lot more interesting hahaha.
I: Oh yes, hahaha I’m certainly sure that it would Mr. Havilland! Do you ever grow tired of the “Popqurn Lifestyle” and/or regret not settling down?
H: I tried it both ways… I have been married multiple times hahaha the only time I weren’t having a lot of sex was while I was married-- and I also express on more than one occasion that it is easier to deal with several girlfriends, than one wife. I Think there is no single answer to happiness and I think that the expression ‘different strokes for different folks’ is really true, you know? This is right now! And the happy a time as I’ve ever had enjoyed, but I look back over the years, the happiest time for me were the times in the early stages of romantic love. It keeps you young. Young love, new love keeps you young.
I: Well… I certainly cannot argue with you there. Mr. Havilland, I want to thank you and I’m sure your readers thank you as well, but I think that’s gonna do it for fan questions for now. If you don’t mind sir, I was hoping maybe we could get into a more serious topic regarding Colorado’s Senator’s Son; Chad Bingham Jr. How you allegedly have hidden cameras in the back of your strip clubs across the country and use these to blackmail celebrities, politicians and other high ranking people.
H: Ha ha ha ha- mmm…ah yes, THIS again…
Look, I’ve heard these ridiculous rumors time and time again. And if I may speak freely, it is complete and utter bullshit, Dave…
I am a business man. Founder of “Popqurn” Magazine and the “Pink Mansion Adventures” I’m a well known and respected man. Not to mention; filthy rich! I got girls, cars, junk, Real estate I got it all. I’m the guy who knows the guys who know! Hmhmhm… No, I don’t need to “blackmail” men who wish they were me!
I: I see. Well, I can’t argue with that. One more question on that subject, if you don’t mind, sir; a rumor has also surfaced that you have a videotape in your possession, with none other than Chad Jr; Senator Bingham Sr’s. Son. Claiming that video has proof of Chad Jr. accidentally killing a stripper in one of your clubs and that you are using that tape to blackmail him for financial gain. How do you respond to that?
**H: Well… that is certainly a new one for me haha… again, I’m a successful businessman. I don’t know how or why such rumors would even come about. I always admired Senator Bingham and had nothing but respect for him. I suppose people just like gossip. Plus, I don’t need to “blackmail” anyone. I got more money than I know what to do with, Dave and it’s all thanks to “Popqurn” **
**Also, I can assure you that I have never had any cameras installed behind mirrors of any of my clubs, that is just absurd. Of course I have cameras inside my establishments for security purposes, but definitely not in private rooms. **
Furthermore, if I in fact, did have videotape evidence such as that, I would most definitely be turning that into the local authorities and not for financial gain and I would accept any consequences that would come my way. But that is simply not the case. I always have and will put principles before profit in any situation. I’m a “born again Christian” for Gods sake.
I: Of course, sir. I definitely understand. And for the record, please keep in mind, this is not coming from me, I don’t believe any of those rumors myself. I’m just asking the questions raised by the press. Nothing more.
H: Oh, absolutely, I totally understand. I know you better than that, David.
I: Thank you, sir… Okay, moving on to a more positive subject, I thought maybe you could explain to your fans, just how Mr. Havilland got to where he is today?
Ehh… I got writers block hahaha I don’t know, I’ll finish this some time later when I can, I gotta get going now anyway. To be continued lol
I need the photographer on the top floor. (Maybe a few of him taking pics of the models, too)
A good close up of the guy that the female assassin (?) is making out with.
The Drunkin’ Santa and the bartender and just a bunch of random shots of the models and guests around the party. Nothing in particular, just some good group shots. And anything else you may find significant to add in this “magazine” I’m open to suggestions so don’t hold back!
Oh, and the actual newspaper that appears after you finish “You better watch out…” I was gonna add some of the stories they show in that newspaper, along with the other images on it that show “advertisements” so basically a clear shot of everything on that particular newspaper.
in the same font that “Playboy” has, that would be great if anyone knows.
