Porn Saints

Forgive us (but not in any way that requires us to do any Hail Marys by way of penance, thank you very much) if we're a little wary of anything that involves mixing porn and religion, but we're still feeling a little icky about all those run-ins we had with misguided zealot types in the far reaches of the AVN Expo in Las Vegas two weeks ago. (True, sometimes porn stars do inspire us to get on our knees, but that's about as close to holy as we'll ever get.) That said, the idea of porn stars as saints is pretty freakin' awesome—especially if it's not because they've suddenly found Jesus and denounced the sex industry, but because a devoted fan like Italian artist Francesco D'Isa has created art depicting objects of veneration like Katsumi and Sasha Grey as such. A little postmodern smut smashed up against religious iconography goes a long way towards restoring our faith in human nature as far as we're concerned. -AR
