Now That's Obscene

Now That's Obscene
The feds have indicted John Stagliano on obscenity charges, which is an act that takes a lot of chutzpah. The movies they chose to indict him on are pretty vanilla in my book, but I don't think the material is the point anymore. I think the material they choose to prosecute became beside the point y...

Knock it Off

Knock it Off
Like the fake Louis Vuitton bags that litter Manhattan’s streets, rip-offs can be found in almost any industry.

Behind Every Video is One Guy's Hard-on

Behind Every Video is One Guy's Hard-on
Just what is it that porn directors do, anyway? It could be fairly said about some directors that you still wouldn’t know what they do even if you spent a day on their sets.

Prosecuting the Consumer

Prosecuting the Consumer
In recent decades, obscenity law in many major industrialized Western democracies has focused on creation, manufacturing and distribution rather than simple possession. Prosecutors in the U.S. and the U.K. — which are among the democracies where obscenity prosecution has been common — have been ... More »
