How about we just let people do what they want to do? Let people make their own decisions, and if you find it offensive or degrading or obscene, look the other way and ignore it. Stop throwing people in prison just because you don't like what they do, say, or believe.
Pornographers Lizzy Borden and Rob Black (a.k.a. Robert Zicari and Janet Romano) today entered guilty pleas in the obscenity case that they have been fighting in court since 2003.
Time Magazine has said that "even among hardcore pornographers, Rob Black is considered a sleazebag," which would imply, of course, that all hardcore pornographers are sleazy--and we happen to know several who are totally upstanding citizens! But Black and Borden's work, which includes extremely rough and scary depictions of rape, torture and "the depths of human depravity" garnered the attention of the Justice Department under John Ashcroft, made them household names in Congress, landing them on PBS and Nightline.
Tampa, Florida (October 3, 2008): The infamous pornographer Max Hardcore was convicted in a federal court in Tampa, Florida for producing fetish videos featuring scat and urine, as well as "humiliation" videos featuring the infliction of pain and degrading sex acts on his female "co-stars." The man who had beat a federal kiddy porn rap back in 2002 was convicted on June 5, 2008 on federal charges of distributing obscenity via the Internet and the U.S. mails. His sentencing was postponed until October, during which time he cranked out another two of his nasty videos.
