Echo Park billboard draws unwanted attention *

Photo by Mariel Garza

An  Adultcon porn expo billboard at Sunset Boulevard and Alvarado Street has drawn stares not only for its subject matter but for the commentary someone has spray painted on the sign: “Porn breeds 56% of divorce.”  It’s not clear if porn has any impact on pizza sales.

* Update: The tagging had been cleaned up by early evening.

  1. Marriage breads 100% of divorce!

  2. LOL @Alijill- Touché, rimshot!

  3. Would a marriage bread be like a challah maybe?

  4. that effing hilarious they should of just cut that billboard up…so UGLY!!!

  5. Yeah breeds sorry (blind). W/O my specs 🙁

  6. Not that I’m taking a stand one way or the other on the porn and adult industry convention, but I find it kind of surprising that the local government-controlled Convention Center is being used to promote the porn industry! That convention is at the Convention Center every year — or is it twice a year. So what’s next: Will the Coliseum be used for major strip or S&M shows?

  7. The Adult Con bill board tagging was cleaned up, but the tagging on the fence around the lake
    is still there. Maybe the city should lease the fence to the porn industry too.

  8. This billboard graffiti begs the question: Does porn enhance the remaining 44% of marriages? Seriously though, it is weird seeing a porn convention promoted on all those billboards. Porn is a major industry here in Los Angeles, so it’s understandable that it would be heavily advertised. Is it any worse than “Friends With Benefits” or whatever else the movie industry wishes to push as legitimate viewing material for mass consumption?

    It’s all porn to me:

    por·nog·ra·phy   
    [pawr-nog-ruh-fee]
    –noun
    obscene writings, drawings, photographs, or the like, especially those having little or no artistic merit.

  9. Ah, come on now, the sign was merely “baptized”, if you follow the wisdom of Lisa Baca-Sigala.

    So proud, so proud.

    <3 porn stars… adultcon boo!

  11. Who’s the model on this billboard so seductive!

  12. HEY Madalyn

    The Adult Con bill board tagging was cleaned up, but the tagging on the fence around the lake

    Check this link out… its funny there actually moving towards that direction with PPP’s Private Public Partnerships…very bad with advertising in public parks…
