Apparently Adelphia cable wants us to love ourselves. Intimately. Starting Friday, Adelphia of Southern California (and most of its cable providers around the nation) will make triple X pay-per-view channel Spice Platinum available to its subscribers. This makes them the first major cable operator in the US to offer hardcore action.

If you don't live in porn valley like we do maybe you don't know what "triple x hardcore action" is. Well, friends and neighbors, that includes anal sex and visible ejaculation according to the Los Angeles Times.

Spice Platinum is owned by Playboy, a company that broke new ground earlier this week by releasing itsPlayboy: The Mansion video game which is, you guessed it, for adults only. Not content to merely dominate the mail order, dvd, and internet markets, porn is ready for you now with just the click of a remote or the pressing of a start button on a controller.

Too bad we live west of Sepulveda Boulevard in the valley where we can only get double x action through Time Warner Cable.
