Hustler's Larry Flynt and "Girls Gone Wild's" Joe Francis say it's the adult entertainment industry's turn for a bailout, TMZ reported.

The economy has hurt their businesses, too, Flynt and Francis said -- sales of XXX DVDs are down 22 percent -- and they want $5 billion from the government.

Congress must "rejuvenate the sexual appetite of America," Flynt said.

I'm pretty sure that Larry isn't actually looking for money so much as looking to make a statement on how the bailouts have thus far been handled, but (and forgive me, it's too easy a joke) if the porn industry goes down, how long will it take before America goes down as well?
