  •  porn is free speech. (2+ / 0-)

    not kidding, that is pretty much the entire argument as to why it's different than sex-selling.  porn is fundamentally films about people having sex, rather than, uh, people having sex on camera (this is why prostitutes can't film their sex encounters and claim it's 'specialty porn').

    the free speech thing is why you can have a live sex show in oregon (and charge money for it!), but prostitution is still illegal there.  the live sex show is a performance on stage and thus protected.  

    rock on, you crazy first amendment!
