Nearly two years ago, BBS reported about the circulation of Bhutanese homemade adult movies and people everywhere made a huge hue and cry – this is evolution of of newly unabashed culture in Bhutan and the tendencies in our people- particularly, the youth to attempt. This is how our social values, vitality and respect are threatened and how we lose our GNH values as the globalization becomes unbridled.
We are living in digital era and the digital age means everything can be done in simplest, shortest and in qucikest way. With technology like mobiles and cameras of different features in hand, it can serve any kind of purpose. The emergence of culture of eroticism or voyeuristic chapter in Bhutan is all because of our mobiles and trendy cameras. Technology was invented never for snapping and making adult videos. People may make only one video because people will say I have made only one. But the moment it reaches someone’s mobile, Bluetooth can do wonder and will reach everyone on their mobiles.
The creator will be busy to find out how it has spread but the harm will be already done before he knows how it has spread! Next time when you see the Bhutanese (porn) star, it can be your neighbor or someone else of whom you can identify with and Bhutan is a small country where a majority of us knows each other. We are less than seven hundred thousand population and revealing the identity or finding the name of the star will be much easier and cannot be a horrendous tasks like in other countries. And, the creator will say at that time I was drunk and can’t remember very well. This is how lousy and dirty culture commences, and become casualties themselves.
We needs to remember that we have father, mother, brothers, sisters, cousins, daughters, uncle, brothers-in law, sisters-in law and if we become stars then how would they feel? The people who attempt to make adult videos are already thinking now. So, if you are porn star or wish to be one, then, the moment you walk in the streets any time of the day, people will give you sheepish looks and will think that guy looks like as if I have seen somewhere else!
The only sterner measures we can take today are to respect privacy and never misuse the technology. Finally, do not to try this at home and make even one knowing that it will multiply to thousands!
