My kind of town, Toronto is...

Laura M. Holson, "The Long View on 'Deep Throat'", The New York Times, 2004 September 5.

It was 1976 and [Brian] Grazer, who was then a struggling producer trying to make it [heh heh] in Hollywood, had been invited to the home of a wealthy real estate lawyer for a screening of the X-rated film about a woman seeking physical gratification through oral sex.
[W]hen the lights went down [heh heh], Mr. Grazer said, an energy gripped the partygoers, making not only the women there more appealing to him, but him to them. "I literally became infinitely more attractive after that movie." Some couples repaired to private bedrooms, he said. Mr. Grazer, now 53 and an Academy Award-winning producer of family fare like "Apollo 13" and "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," said he went home with a brown-eyed Brazilian woman.
"I was in Toronto recently, and Toronto is like being in middle America," Mr. Grazer recalled. "And you've got very hot, young, 18-to 20-year-old girls with tongue studs and they are simply, publicly advertising that they are interested in and capable of giving you really good oral sex if you're interested...."
Hello, I'm Brian Grazer and I'm a big, big perv.

Note to self: consider Toronto for next vacation.
