Wind porn industry sees biggest growth in Germany

Emden, Germany- This week marked the first official anniversary for the European wind porn industry, after years spent underground in back alley trading.  Based in Emden, industry spokesperson Markus Grier said, “the wind porn industry grew by nearly 150% this year.  That shows you the kind of legitimacy we have and we expect to continue that trend this year too.”

For years wind pornography hovered in a social gray area, not explicitly illegal by German law or EU legislation, but dangerous to own nevertheless.  “We knew society would look down upon us for it, but we weren’t sure how exactly people might react to our sexualising of machines” said a long time wind pornography aficionado who wished not to be named.  In the past, pictures of the largest turbines, ones the industry refers to as ‘beasts’ or BWT’s (big and wide turbines) were hard to come by.  Instead, wind porn enthusiast would go out to the farms, or occasionally test facilities to get their fix. This however, was risky practice. “I was arrested twice, and beaten up more times than I can remember by them [wind farm operators]” said one industry member.  “but getting caught with your pants down in a field is fine by me as long as it’s for the E-126” he chuckled, referring to one of the world’s largest 7 MW wind turbines.

It was one year ago, that the German government finally made clear that wind pornography was in fact legal and could operate its own legitimate trading industry.  “That was obviously a huge win for, well, most of us” said Grier, pausing for a moment.  “But pornography images of turbines under 250 kW were made explicitly illegal, which was a blow to a small portion of our members”.  No government officials were available to comment on this caveat in the legislation, but one government aid said, “the small ones are just too vulnerable, often less than even 2 meters tall.  We couldn’t take the risk”.  Despite this, Grier says he plans to grow the industry out of Germany and into the rest of the EU “where there are others like us, who love what we love”.

  1. While a large proportion of our resident experts and contributors are delighted and overwhelmed with this manifestation of enthusiasm and interest in wind energy. The IPCC itself will not be providing an official opinion on this trend.
    Bilateral / bi-curious and multi partner agreements will be discussed in the 409th assessment report which will be published in August 2015.
