Business Insider Visits 12 Former Porn Stars … Again

Business Insider Visits 12 Former Porn Stars ... Again

LOS ANGELES—Business Insider is so desperate for articles about porn that it has published the exact same article a year and a half apart, as if time stood still. Funny thing is, a commenter quickly called them out on the self-plagiarism, which they probably weren't expecting.

The article is titled “12 Former Porn Stars Who Now Lead Boring, Normal Lives,” and even in its original form it was a non-original rehash of the 2010 documentary After Porn Ends, which itself was retitled and released by a reviled former member of the industry after its first run as Exxit: Life After Porn bombed. The BI author, Melia Robinson, was no doubt unaware of that when she first posted the story on July 1, 2013, or today when she posted it for the second time, 18 months later, without a single word updated.

As a form of instant karma, today’s readers had little patience for the article’s lack of originality, with one commenting, So basically you took screenshots from a documentary movie about this (After Porn Ends) and turned it into an article? Isn't this plagiarism??”

And another pointing out, “Please don't reuse articles,” with a link to the original.

And yet another reader noted, “I actually Googled their names and 9 of them out of 12 are still in the porn industry…”

Of course, all publicity is good publicity, so to the extent that performers past and present who want it are getting some extra exposure, they are probably not complaining, but it’s also true that some of their bios need updating. Indeed, a quick search of AVN.com for Asia Carrera would have called up a recent story about her Pastafarian conversion, an item that was also reported by mainstream outlets. But then, one would only undertake such a search if one was in fact interested.

Oh, and referring to Shelley Lubben as a porn star is always incorrect, as is lumping her in with bona fide stars. That alone leaves an indelible stain of ignorance on the effort.

Today in Law: If Nobody Hears an F-Bomb, Is It Still Indecent?

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

If Nobody Hears an F-Bomb, Is It Still Indecent?

CYBERSPACE—Not everyone at AVN is a football fan, but we're pretty much all interested in censorship—so when three people filed indecency complaints with the Federal Communications Commission over something they saw during the recent Patriots-Packer game, we were interested ... especially because no one heard anything!

The object of the complainers' ire was New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who, after his team made some disappointing plays during the Patriots-Packers game played at Lambeau Field on November 30, stood on the sidelines and mouthed the word "fuck" silently several times in succession.

ADVERTISEMENT


According to an article on prominent attorney Jonathan Turley's blog, one Indianapolis parent wrote in his complaint that "6 year old children know how to read lips even if there is no sound," while a Pennsylvania grandparent stated that, "My 8 year old grandson was watching the game with me and even commented that he [Brady] should not have said that."

The problem, of course, is that Brady (pictured) didn't "say that"; he just mouthed it—and such silence doesn't meet the FCC's definition of broadcast indecency, which states, "language or material that, in context, depicts or describes, in terms patently offensive as measured by contemporary community standards for the broadcast medium, sexual or excretory organs or activities"—and merely mouthing an "indecent" word doesn't rise to the level of "depicts or describes."

What the FCC will do with the complaints is anybody's guess. None of the "usual suspects" in the right-wing religious blogosphere have picked up on issue yet, but it's likely that they will. After all, they've spent a good part of the last few years complaining about TV shows like Dating Naked that feature computer-masked bare body parts, which they also consider to be "indecent."

So consider this a call to arms, adult entertainment fans: Whenever you're at a sporting (or, really, any event) that's being televised, feel free to silently mouth epithets like "fuck"—because we all know that if nobody's around to hear a tree falling in the forest, it doesn't make a sound.

Former Escort Sues Over ‘America’s Next Top Model’ Top Pick

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

Former Escort Sues Over 'America's Next Top Model' Top Pick

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.America's Next Top Model, hosted by top model herself Tyra Banks, has been on The CW Network for over 11 years, but back in 2011, Angelea Preston made it to Cycle 17's final round—but was summarily disqualified from the grand prize, which included a contract with CoverGirl cosmetics worth an estimated $100,000, photo spreads in Vogue Italia and Beauty in Vogue magazines, a fashion campaign in magazine Express, a role as a guest correspondent on the TV show Extra, and the chance to be the "face" of a new perfume.

ADVERTISEMENT


Why? Because the show's producers found out that before becoming a contestant on the show, Preston had been working as an escort.

Preston originally appeared on America's Next Top Model (ANTM) in its 14th "cycle," but was eliminated in the 11th episode. However, Cycle 17 featured 14 previously non-winning contestants for a competition among themselves, and this time, Preston was named the winner of the competition. However, the producers, citing a "moral turpitude" clause of the contract she signed, refused to award Preston the grand prize.

That clause reads, in pertinent part, "I further acknowledge and agree that if I am selected and/or announced as the winner and at any point before or after I am announced as the winner on the program I am caught or exposed committing any act which results in any public disgrace, outrage or other embarrassing act or any act that constitutes an act of moral turpitude (for example, if I am arrested, charged and/or convicted of a crime or appear in any sexually explicit material), then: Producers shall have the right at any time to strip me of and/or require me to return any and all prizes and the title of 'The Winner of America's Next Top Model,' as well as the benefits deriving from such prizes and title including, without limitation, any part of the grand prize."

Preston argues in her complaint that she could only be disqualified if she were caught committing a disgraceful act after she had been selected as the winner, but that the show's producers "wrongly attempted to terminate" her for allegedly being an escort before she began competing in Cycle 17—and furthermore, she charges that the producers—and particularly casting director Michelle Mock—knew about her escorting activities even before she was cast to appear in Cycle 17, having allegedly been informed of such activities by another contestant, Crystal White.

So Preston's suing the show, its host and producers for $3 million—and part of her complaint, which can be read here, is that the show violated fair labor practices by, among other things, forcing Preston and other contestants to work 16-hour days, sometimes without a meal break, and by keeping the contestants in isolation ("put on ice") for five to six hours at a time, also without food or water. Preston also claims that the show's staff failed to provide her with proper medical attention when she suffered a panic attack during filming, and that she wasn't paid a legal hourly wage for her work, nor overtime wages for overtime.

Suit was filed just last week, so no trial date has yet been set—and since Preston apparently has never been arrested for any activities relating to escorting, it'll probably be an interesting trial.

Caribbean Adult Industry Association Announces January Launch

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

Caribbean Adult Industry Association Announces January Launch

LOS ANGELES—Local Caribbean news outlet St. Lucia News Online posted a tantalizing press release today about the launch in January of a trade association for adult entertainment professionals in the area.

The release reads, "After recent discussions, adult entertainment operators and professionals across the region are coming together to form the Caribbean Adult Industry Association (C.A.I.A). This initiative is spearheaded by Charlie Spice of Barbados, who has been involved in adult entertainment for over 30 years in the USA, UK, Europe and the Caribbean."

ADVERTISEMENT


No one in the office here is acquainted with Charlie Spice, and the iafd.com database does not list anyone under that name, but that doesn't mean he has not had the aforementioned experience. Adult entertainment is a big tent. Indeed, according to an autobiography currently being written by Spice, the preface for which can be read on his website, the Barbados-native's vast experience includes stints as "a Male Strip Dancer, Escort, Strip Club operator and Escort Agency owner." If he ever gets around to finishing the autobiography, it could be a page-turner.

The rest of the release is made up of a lengthy quote from Spice explaining the need for the planned association. "Over the years," he says, "the number of adult entertainment operators and professionals in the Caribbean has grown astronomically. Sex is generating million of dollars a year in each country across the region and has undeniably become a massive industry and a major contributor to the GPD and the economy on the whole.

"The recession in particular is one of the factors fuelling this growth," he continues. "In spite of unrelenting adversity from some members of the private and public sectors across the region, the adult industry continues to grow exponentially across the region and therefore the need to launch an organization to offer proper organization, representation and structure is timely and critically important.

"Like it or not," he concludes, "the industry has evolved and is here to stay.”

For more information about the C.A.I.A., go here.

British Deputy PM Expresses Concern Over Reach of Porn Regs

British Deputy PM Expresses Concern Over Reach of Porn Regs

LONDON—Britain's Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg is, at 47, only one year younger than Prime Minster David Cameron, but his outlook on some matters of national import make him seem much younger, and certainly less conservative—not surprising since Clegg is from the Liberal Democrat Party. One such matter is sex, or more specifically, porn, about which the Deputy PM yesterday expressed his reservations about the new anti-porn regulations enacted December 1 that prohibit the production of content that includes an array of sexually-related activities, including face-sitting, fisting and female ejaculation, to name but a few.

ADVERTISEMENT


The new prohibitions, courtesy of the Audiovisual Media Services Regulations 2014, were the subject of a protest last Friday outside the Parliament building that drew a slew of both protesters and media. The regulations are also the subject of a parliamentary challenge by fellow Liberal Democrat Julian Huppert, who has the backing of Clegg, according to The Independent.

"Three days after a face-sitting protest outside Parliament against new curbs on what can be shown in internet video porn, the Deputy Prime Minister said the new regulations had not got the balance right, and that the state should not invade the privacy of people’s bedrooms," reported the paper yesterday, adding, "He told his monthly press conferences that he shared some of the concerns raised by his MPs."

The Liberal Democrat leader clarified, "It is not a prurient judgment of whether we approve or not of someone’s behavior in the privacy of their bedroom. It is not the role of politicians to cast moral judgments on that. It’s whether we think that in a free society, people should be free to do things that many people might find exotic at mildest or deeply unappetizing at worst, but it’s their freedom to do so. That seems to me to be is a classic liberal assertion.”

He added, "Government is not there to stick its nose in the bedroom as long as people are not doing things which are illegal under the law. It’s not really for us to judge how people get their kicks, but it is our role to make sure the law is upheld, and that the law does not encroach on private spaces where the law has no role to intrude."

It should be noted that the new regulations apply only to the production of sexual content featuring the prohibited activities, and not specifically to "someone’s behavior of the privacy of their bedroom," as the Deputy PM suggests, but because the new regs actually extend prohibitions already in place for DVD productions to websites, they could and indeed will impact the activity of live cam performers, many of whom may indeed work from their bedrooms—and possibly even couples' behaviors in their bedrooms, if such behavior includes a good XXX movie. In that sense, Clegg is spot on in his worry about the reach of the regulations.

And of course, his larger reproach to those who would  "cast moral judgments" on sexual acts that "many people might find exotic at mildest or deeply unappetizing at worst," that a free people should be free to do those things without having to worry about being made a criminal for it applies across the board to productions as well as individuals.

This is not the first time Clegg has expressed public support for a controversial issue related to porn. In 2010, as AVN reported at the time, a British porn producer named Ann Arrowsmith, who worked under the name Anna Span, was the Liberal Democrat candidate for Gravesham in Kent in the general election. She lost the race, but Clegg, who was the Lib Dem leader at the time, had told The Sun before the vote, "It's not exactly my cup of tea what she's been doing before she has put herself forward in Parliament but I also think it's really important that people like her who really care a lot about her local area are encouraged to come into politics. You can't accuse her of being a cardboard cut-out Westminster politician."

Hear, hear!

The Civilians Launch ‘Pretty Filthy’ Kickstarter Campaign

Musical about the human side of XXX industry entices public to support with unique perks

The Civilians Launch 'Pretty Filthy' Kickstarter Campaign

Posted Dec 16th, 2014 12:08 PM

NEW YORK CITY—The Civilians have launched a Kickstarter campaign to support their upcoming Off-Broadway production Pretty Filthy, a new musical inspired by interviews with the real people of porn. The Civilians have partnered with legends of the XXX industry to offer some once-in-a-lifetime experiences to support the world premiere of this production.

Armed with notepads and recorders, The Civilians crossed the mountain range that divides Hollywood from the “other Hollywood”—the San Fernando Valley, world capital of porn. The Civilians’ crew conducted interviews and visited sets to get an insider’s glimpse into a world that is far more than the sum of its (very) visible parts. The creative team learned firsthand that the words of one interviewee, the legendary Nina Hartley, were quite true: “Having sex on camera is far less sexy and far more ridiculous than you might think.” Pretty Filthy is ultimately a story about trying to make a life and a living in an ever-changing world—a task that’s all the more complicated when your work is so intimately tied to customer “satisfaction.”

ADVERTISEMENT


Some highlighted perks include attending a pre-show dinner and performance with a choice of three porn superstars: Nina Hartley, James Deen, or Ginger Lynn. Another unique perk is the opportunity to visit the set of one of Jim Powers’ next films. The highest pledge option offers a donor the opportunity to have a personalized boudoir video shot by director Eli Cross. Donors can also opt for an “anything you want to know” chat via phone with either Eli Cross, Kayden Kross, Lynn Lemay, or Veronica Hart (limited quantities), or a Valentine’s Day card signed by Lynn Lemay, Veronica Hart or Georgina Spelvin.

Pledge levels associated with the campaign range from $1 through $10,000, with other perks including an exclusive digital download of behind-the-scenes interview excerpts and photos from The Civilians’ investigation of the porn industry; ticket(s) to a preview performance, including a special gift bag VIP night tickets, which includes a meet-and-greet with director Steve Cosson and members of the cast and creative team; and opening night tickets, including post-show party access.

To participate in The Civilians’Pretty Filthy Kickstarter campaign, click here. To date, the campaign has raised over $18,000 of its $25,000 goal; the campaign ends at 8:59 p.m. PST/11:59 p.m. EST on Tuesday, December 23.

“This is by far the most ambitious project The Civilians has undertaken to date,” said Steve Cosson, Artistic Director of The Civilians and Director of Pretty Filthy. “By definition, this is a musical about an industry that is pushing boundaries, taking risks, and overcoming new challenges. Doing honor to this industry and the candid interviews given by insiders is hugely important. Every contribution, no matter the amount, is vitally important and will go directly towards supporting this non-profit production. We invite you to take this leap with us and boldly go where no major musical has ever gone before.”

Originally commissioned by the prestigious Center Theater Group in Los Angeles and developed through workshops, residencies, and public presentations, Pretty Filthy will have its world premiere at the Abrons Art Center in New York. The limited engagement runs January 31 through March 1, 2015 with preview performances January 31 through February 7. Pretty Filthy is directed by Steve Cosson, with music and lyrics by Michael Friedman and book by Bess Wohl.

Golden Age Appreciation Fund: Kay Parker Needs Help

New charitable organization raising funds for homeless 'Taboo' star

Kay Parker Needs Help

Posted Dec 16th, 2014 10:27 AM

LOS ANGELES, Calif.—The Golden Age Appreciation Fund, a non-profit initiative established in 2014 to help raise funds for those formerly associated with the golden age adult film industry, launches its campaign with an appeal for golden era erotic film "goddess," Kay Parker. 

Kay Parker, one of the true legends of adult cinema, began her film career in 1977 and appeared in several feature films over the next decade. Today Kay is one of the industry's most recognizable and best-loved figures. Since her retirement, Kay has dedicated herself to the welfare of others, working as a freelance New Age metaphysical counselor and writing a book about her spiritual experiences.

ADVERTISEMENT


Kay turned 70 in 2014, and in recent times has unfortunately experienced severe financial difficulties which have forced her out of her home. Relying on the kindness of friends for a place to stay, Parker is struggling to collect enough money for a down payment to cover the first and last month's rent, plus a security deposit for a place of her own. 

This stressful situation is taking a toll on her personal well-being, as Kay herself admits: "I'm so frustrated and saddened after everything I have done in my life; this is not where I'd expected to be at this stage."

From her beginnings in wartime Birmingham in England, Kay Parker was introduced to the adult film industry in the mid 1970s by playing small non-sexual roles. Director Anthony Spinelli talked her into doing her first sex scene in the 1977 film Sex World, and Kay was soon one of the leading lights of the industry. Parker is perhaps best remembered for her role in the original feature film Taboo, where she plays the mother, and is partnered with Mike Ranger co-starring as her son Paul Scott in what many have described as one of the golden age's most memorable and provocative scenes.

Apart from her film work, Kay also became a prominent spokesperson for the adult business, appearing on television, college campuses, and in magazines, passionately defending the rights of the filmmakers and the performers. She is remembered with great fondness and respect by all who worked with her, including such luminaries as Seka, Eric Edwards, and Richard Pacheco.

Recently, Kay was featured in the book Golden Goddesses by Jill C. Nelson (Bear Manor Media), and interviewed for The Rialto Report podcast, where both her appearances received much positive attention proving that she is still remembered and loved by her many fans.

The Golden Age Appreciation Fund would like to kick things off by highlighting Kay's need, and additionally make it easy for anyone wishing to make a donation to help Kay get back into a place of her own.

Although TGAAF fundraising efforts are continuous, this fund drive will remain open over the entire holiday season and will run until Friday January 9, 2015. All donations are welcome; no amount is too small. Donors are encouraged to leave a message for Kay along with the donation. All monies collected will be passed directly to her.

To donate, click here.

The Golden Age Appreciation Fund (TGAAF) was set up by Mark Jason Murray (veteran researcher and writer about cult/genre cinema), Jill Nelson, and Ashley West.

Get Kinky! Kink.com Brings The Lair Back to AEE 2015

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Fetish enthusiasts of all stripes will be able to explore the kinkier side of sex at the Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE) with the return of The Lair, a stimulating dungeon playground, which promises a supremely authentic BDSM experience for both dedicated fetishists and tourists. 

The Lair will occupy the upper level of The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas during AEE, which is held in conjunction with the AVN Novelty Expo (ANE) and will take place Jan. 21-24, 2015. To register for the show, visit AVNShow.com.

For 2015, The Lair promises to be larger than ever, showcasing more performers, live demonstrations and interactive displays that will shock and awe fans. The fetish playground presents several educational exhibitions, and attendees will have the opportunity to purchase kinky trappings and accoutrements from BDSM exhibitors. For more information, visit Fan.AdultEntertainmentExpo.com/thelair.

This year, AEE is proud to announce that online BDSM leader Kink.com will be sponsoring The Lair.

“We are excited to work to help enhance The Lair this year at AEE,” Kink.com’s Matt Slusarenko said. “What better place to demystify alternative sexualities than at the world's largest adult show.”

Mark Schechter Responds to Shy Love Lawsuit

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

Mark Schechter Responds to Shy Love Lawsuit

LOS ANGELES—In addition to ATMLA owner Mark Schechter's filing of a cross-complaint leveling charges against ATMLA's former owner, Roy Liberboim, and its manager, Shy Love, he's also now filed a formal response to the lawsuit filed by Love herself—and though several pages shorter than his lawsuit, Schechter nonetheless makes his position clear that he believes Love's original lawsuit is meritless.

ADVERTISEMENT


For example, where Love had claimed in her complaint that an unnamed individual had told Love that Schechter had stated that "Love's husband[] had sold his business [ATMLA], which was in part operated by Plaintiff, because Plaintiff was bankrupt, that she had been unlawfully altering the business' accounting  books, and that Plaintiff [owed] numerous of her employees and independent contractors large sums of money," Schechter's official Response, as filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday, is "The complaint and each of its causes of action are barred because all statements made were truthful and accurate."

Schechter's Answer, as drafted by his attorney, Karen Tynan, goes on to state, as "Affirmative Defenses," that the actions complained of by Love are "barred by the Statute of Limitations," "barred by the doctrine of qualified privilege under the California Civil Code §47"; "barred because all acts of defendant were done in innocence and good faith and motivated by legitimate, non-retaliatory and non-punitive reasons"; and that both the causes of action and the requested remedies are "barred because Plaintiff failed to mitigate her damages"; "barred because any statements were an expression of opinion"; "barred because Plaintiff is a 'limited purpose public figure' as she is an adult film performer, she regularly publicizes herself and her expertise in the adult film industry, and she holds herself out as a leader in the adult business"; and "barred because Defendant made a fair comment regarding Plaintiff."

Beyond that, Schechter's Answer contends, as further affirmative defenses, that Love "failed to mitigate her alleged damages," meaning that there were actions Love could have taken that would have reduced or eliminated her claimed harms; that "Defendant did not act with malice," a requirement for a "public figure" Plaintiff to succeed in a defamation suit; that Love has "filed the complaint with 'unclean hands' and is in some manner responsible for the alleged damages within her complaint and therefore should be estopped from obtaining any relief by virtue of this action"; and that "the Complaint fails to properly state a claim for Special Damages." Schechter also contests Love's right to attorneys' fees or costs should she prevail in the lawsuit.

Still to be heard from are Schechter's co-defendant, director/actor Barrett Blade, as well as the so-far-unnamed "Does 1-20" also named as defendants.

Schechter's full Answer to Shy Love's complaint can be found here.

FSC: ‘Measure B Decision will Hurt Performers’

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

'Measure B Decision will Hurt Performers'

Posted Dec 15th, 2014 02:53 PM

CANOGA PARK, Calif.—The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals announced today that it would decline to issue an injunction to stop Measure B, the 2012 ballot measure which seeks to mandate condoms in adult films produced in Los Angeles County. This latest decision is not a ruling on the constitutionality of Measure B, but rather a decision declining to enjoin the rest of the statute at this time. Previous courts have struck down the enforcement component of the law; this latest ruling does not change that decision.

“While this intermediate decision allows that condoms may be mandated, it doesn’t mean they should be,” said Diane Duke, CEO of the Free Speech Coalition. “We have spent the last two years fighting for the rights of adult performers to make their own decisions about their bodies, and against the stigma against adult film performers embodied in the statute. Rather than protect adult performers, a condom mandate pushes a legal industry underground where workers are less safe. This is terrible policy that has been defeated in other legislative venues.”

Los Angeles County has seen a 95% drop in permits since the passage of Measure B, as adult film production has moved into neighboring counties, and out of state, most notably to Las Vegas.

Under standards enforced by the industry, in order to work, adult film performers must test every fourteen days for a full-slate of STIs, including HIV. There has not been a transmission of HIV on a regulated adult film set in over a decade.

Plaintiffs in the case are considering all options for moving forward and will make a decision in the coming weeks.

Ninth Circuit Panel Upholds Measure B—At Least Until Trial

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off

Three-judge panel claims it has jurisdiction to review the case despite AHF's lack of standing

Ninth Circuit Panel Upholds Measure B—At Least Until Trial

SAN FRANCISCO—In an opinion that appears to stand the whole concept of legal "standing" on its head, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has upheld the portions of Los Angeles County's Measure B which were not struck down by U.S. District Court Judge Dean D. Pregerson. The remaining portions of Measure B which were upheld mandate (among other things) that condoms (and other barrier protections) must be used "during any acts of vaginal or anal sexual intercourse."

ADVERTISEMENT


After acknowledging that "The Supreme Court has held that a party must have Article III standing both to initiate an action and to seek review on appeal," the Ninth Circuit claims that it nonetheless has jurisdiction over the case because the plaintiffs—Vivid Entertainment, Kayden Kross and Logan Pierce—"alone who have invoked the federal courts’ jurisdiction."

"For that reason, we need not and do not decide whether Intervenors satisfy the requirements of Article III standing," the opinion continues. "To the extent that Plaintiffs contend that the district court erred in granting intervention, we cannot consider their challenge. An order allowing intervention under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 24(a) is not a final order and is not an interlocutory order appealable by statute, so an appeal on that issue is premature until entry of final judgment."

The proper term for such a ruling is "Catch 22," from Joseph Heller's novel of the same name. In making its decision, the Ninth Circuit is saying that despite the fact that Judge Pregerson unconstitutionally permitted AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) to intervene in the case, it is unable to consider that issue until after a trial has taken place and Judge Pregerson issues his decision on the matter—but that ignores the fact that since Los Angeles County has steadfastly refused to take part in the lawsuit, no such trial would take place were it not for the unconstitutional actions of the judge in allowing AHF to intervene, to file motions and argue them in his court! The Ninth Circuit ruling also sets the stage for yet another motion which the Plaintiffs could file, which would move to preclude AHF attorneys from taking part in the trial since, under the U.S. Supreme Court's opinion in Hollingsworth v. Perry, they had no standing to intervene in the first place.

That issue aside, however, the Ninth Circuit has upheld Judge Pregerson's severance of certain facets of Measure B, most notably its requirement that L.A. County be permitted to set its own fee schedule for the "services" it would be providing in inspection adult film sets and issuing the require public health permits to adult producers. It also upheld the court's denial of the county's ability under the measure to conduct warrantless searches by county health officers of adult producers' studios and locations, as well as the county's ability to suspend and/or revoke the health permits based on criteria stated in Measure B.

Plaintiffs had argued that the district court's striking of certain individual words and phrases from Measure B, such as the word "oral" from the measure's requirement that "oral, vaginal, or anal penetration" by adult actors required condom use, was improper, but the Ninth Circuit ruled that as long as the law still made grammatical sense and still functioned with something like its original intent, the excision of those certain words and phrases was not an abuse of discretion that the Ninth Circuit should second-guess the trial court on.

"Because the remaining parts of Measure B operate independently, are not rendered vague in the absence of the invalid provisions, and are capable of separate enforcement, the district court permissibly ruled that the provisions are functionally severable," the panel ruled. It also opined that even with the excisions made by Judge Pregerson, county voters would still have approved the law in its abridged form.

Most galling, however, is the Ninth Circuit's position that "The condom mandate ... has only a de minimis [negligible] effect on expression," ignoring the fact that historically, every company that has adopted a mandatory condom policy has experienced a drop in sales, which translates to a decreased ability to have its message seen by the public.

The court also found that possible sexually transmitted infections are a "secondary effect" of making adult movies and Web content, and that under the U.S. Supreme Court's standards as set forth in City of Los Angeles v. Alameda Books, it is a valid exercise of state power to reduce the "secondary effects" by requiring condoms (though, of course, Measure B mandates far more than condoms).

The Ninth Circuit used both of those positions to rule that Measure B not be subjected to the "strict scrutiny" that Plaintiffs had claimed consideration of the law required, but instead ruled that "intermediate scrutiny," a lower standard, was the level properly applied to Measure B.

But beyond "secondary effects," the Ninth Circuit upheld the "condom requirement" by reaching back to the 2000 U.S. Supreme Court decision in City of Erie v. Pap's AM, noting that in that decision, the high court found that requiring exotic dancers to wear g-strings and pasties did not impact the expressive message they were trying to convey through their dance, not to mention the Ninth Circuit's own decision in Gammoh v. City of LaHabra, which required dancers to stay at least two feet away from patrons during their performances.

"In light of those cases, we must examine more carefully whether Plaintiffs' relevant expression is the depiction of condomless sex," the Ninth Circuit ruled. "Plaintiffs submitted declarations stating that condomless sex differs from sex generally because condoms remind the audience about real-world concerns such as pregnancy and disease. Under this view, films depicting condomless sex convey a particular message about sex in a world without those risks. The Supreme Court has cautioned, however, that '[i]t is possible to find some kernel of expression in almost every activity a person undertakes—for example, walking down the street or meeting one’s friends at a shopping mall—but such a kernel is not sufficient to bring the activity within the protection of the First Amendment.'

"To determine whether conduct is protected by the First Amendment, we ask not only whether someone intended to convey a particular message through that conduct, but also whether there is a 'great' likelihood 'that the message would be understood by those who viewed it.' Here, we agree with the district court that, whatever unique message Plaintiffs might intend to convey by depicting condomless sex, it is unlikely that viewers of adult films will understand that message. So condomless sex is not the relevant expression for First Amendment purposes; instead, the relevant expression is more generally the adult films' erotic message." [Citations and internal quote marks removed]

In other words, suck up the condoms; viewers will still get off.

But this view of the function of condoms in erotic messaging also allows the Ninth Circuit to claim that Measure B doesn't ban "relevant expression," and that the condoms' overall effect on the message is de minimus: "The requirement that actors in adult films wear condoms while engaging in sexual intercourse might have 'some minimal effect' on a film's erotic message, but that effect is certainly no greater than the effect of pasties and G-strings on the erotic message of nude dancing."

As regards the health concerns supposedly addressed by Measure B, the Ninth Circuit panel rejects the fact that the adult industry's testing regimen can be nearly if not as effective as a condom mandate. After a recitation of how and at what frequency the industry tests performers, and noting that "industry officials" have testified that the testing system is effective, the panel gave equal if not more credence to the position taken by the county's Department of Public Health in a 2009 letter that "its analysis of 2008 data showed a markedly higher rate of sexually transmitted infections for performers within the adult film industry, 20%, than for the general public, 2.4%, and even for the county area with the highest rate of infection, 4.5%." It also accepted the county's claim that "20.2% of performers in adult films diagnosed with an infection were reinfected within one year." It apparently gave no weight to the findings of Johns Hopkins epidemiologist Dr. Lawrence S. Mayer, who found that the county's assessment of the county's STI rate is fatally flawed.

Finally, the appeals court rejected the argument that Measure B would be ineffective in any case because condomless (and barrierless) production could easily take place outside of L.A. County. The court said that Plaintiffs had undermined their own argument by noting that "Plaintiffs offered evidence before the district court that Measure B has drastically reduced the number of adult films produced by the industry because the productions, which depend heavily on the 'regular' film industry's infrastructure in Los Angeles County, cannot be moved elsewhere. That evidence undermines Plaintiffs' new contention that Measure B is ineffective because of the adult film industry's ready mobility."

The final section of the Ninth Circuit's opinion deals with the new permitting requirement for adult productions, and rejects the industry's contention that such permitting is "content-based and therefore unconstitutional," stating that such permitting, or "licensing," is not unconstitutional simply because it is content-based—and they use that finding to further argue that Measure B is sufficiently "narrowly tailored" to pass the "intermediate scrutiny" test.

The text of the Ninth Circuit's decision, which can be found here, bodes poorly for the adult industry's ability to continue to shoot in Los Angeles County, despite the fact that the issue hasn't even been brought to trial yet. Adult industry attorneys and Free Speech Coalition's Diane Duke are currently analyzing the decision, and a statement from one or more of the parties is expected later today.

Lisa Ann Announces Retirement In Handwritten Letter to Fans

Lisa Ann Announces Retirement In Handwritten Letter to Fans

LOS ANGELES—Lisa Ann, the award-winning performer who has defined the MILF category for much of mainstream media, announced her retirement earlier today on her Facebook page.

Taking the time to pen a handwritten letter to her fans and colleagues, Lisa Ann posted photos of the letter on her page earlier today. She also tweeted about her retirement.

The letter reads as follows:

Dear World,

ADVERTISEMENT


We have had such a personal and intimate relationship for so many amazing years. I couldn’t think of a more personal way to share my thoughts with you than taking the time to handwrite you a letter.

I have to start this letter with a thank you. Thank you for all the years I have been able to live out my sexual fantasies through fulfilling ours. I have learned who I am sexually by the challenges you have presented me. I also thank you for the amount of years I have been able to be successful in the adult industry as I know it. [It] is your dedication to me that has dictated the success and length of my career. I also thank you for making me so incredibly strong, independent and most of all sexy!

2014 will be my last year performing in front of the camera doing sex scenes for you. Yes, I am retiring. I wanted to tell you first, myself. It took hours a day, months on end, to try to decide how I was going to tell you, while knowing the entire time how ready I am to create change in my life.

Since I know I can’t make us go cold turkey, without each other, I will still be doing some personal appearances, the occasional special event webcam show. You will always have access to me on my social media and through my new online store I am launching for you on Christmas Day.

I am also working with Fleshlight and Kuzoo on an interactive product that will give the world a brand new ability at a virtual sexual experience.

As for my overall existence in this industry … I have unseen scenes that I plan to sprinkle over time on my website TheLisaAnn.com and I will be working on raising the standards the industry presently has to offer. It is time for me to take a step back, and stand up.

I have been working on a project to help empower the performers in the industry. My business partner Jayden James [sic] and I will be launching a new consulting company—ThePornStarBootCamp.com.

In my new life I dream of having an undefeated season in Fantasy Football while pursuing my career in Fantasy Sports. You can hear my every Monday night on Sirius XM Fantasy Sport Radio Sirius 210/XM 87 10 p.m. ET. I plan to work towards a bigger role with the Sirius family.

My desire to write an incredible book for you to enjoy is everything to me right now.

Starting 2015 it will be my #1 goal for you.

This was a very difficult letter for me to word, write and actually hand-write for you. My letter is resignation in some way, but the birth of my new life in so many other ways. It was heard to walk away from something that has been filled with so much adventure, but I know it is time for me to slow down a bit and as they say “Stop and Smell the Roses.”

P.S. One small favor I ask, as I think for many of you I have done many big and small favors for you. Now it is my turn. My turn to live your life and be able to be out and about. If you see me out, feel free to say hello, but I will only be doing pictures at my events, not in public. I want to be out with my friends have fun and maybe go on a date without taking a picture with another guy! LOL. I hope that you understand. It is my turn to be just like all of you!!

Thank you all so much for the life you have allowed me to life for so many eyars now. As for the years I have strived to make you happy also make it clear. It was all REAL and so is this.

And so am I. The Real Lisa Ann.

All my love,

Lisa Ann

Lisa Ann started in the industry in 1990 as a dancer at Al’s Diamond Cabaret in Reading, Pa. In 1994, she moved to Los Angeles to become an adult actress, but left in 1997 to pursue a career as a feature dancer. She initially returned to Porn Valley in 1997 as an agent, but when she realized she was still in demand, she got back in front of the camera and saw her career explode.

Much of her recognition in mainstream started when, during the 2008 presidential election, she parodied Saran Palin in Hustler Video’s Who’s Nailin’ Paylin?

Lisa Ann was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame in 2009, and has continued to win several industry awards since then. She also continued her feature dancing career, and began a radio career on a Fantasy Football internet radio show. She has also continued to make national headlines in recent years, from agreeing to take a fan to a recent AVN Awards Show, to taking starlet Belle Know under her wing and guiding her career.

Lisa Ann was not immediately available for comment, but AVN will continue to update this story as more details become available.

Mark Schechter Countersues Shy Love for Breach of Contract

Mark Schechter Countersues Shy Love for Breach of Contract

LOS ANGELES—On Friday, attorneys for talent agency ATMLA owner Mark Schechter countersued the agency's former owner, Roy Liberboim, and its manager, Shy Love (under her real name), on various grounds including breach of contract, intentional interference with prospective economic advantage, unfair business practices and fraud. The countersuit comes roughly three weeks after Love sued Schechter, claiming that he'd defamed her and sought to ruin the new talent agency she and her husband had opened, VIP Connect.

ADVERTISEMENT


The main charge in the countersuit appears to be the couple's opening of VIP Connect, which Schechter claims is in violation of the asset purchase agreement that Liberboim, Love and Schechter had entered into in October 2012, which provided, in part, that "The Seller and Mrs. Liberboim agree not to ... solicit, negotiate or enter into any contract or agreement; commit any act or omission; or work with any third party of model in any matter whatsoever which would cause the Purchaser any prejudice during the licensing term or at any time after the purchase of the assets contemplated herein." Specifically, Schechter claims that Liberboim, Love or both had "provided confidential information and false information to an adult industry gossip blogger who then posted said information." That blogger, of course, was Mike South.

Another paragraph of the cross-complaint states, in part, that, "Seller shall not, for a period of three (3) years following the final transfer of ownership in the Assets directly or indirectly operate, create or have an interest in any organization or entity in North American [sic] and/or Central American [sic] which is substantially engaged in the operation or management of an adult talent agency."

Other "causes of action" in the cross complaint accuse Liberboim and Love of disparaging Schechter's abilities as an agent by allegedly making statements such as "Mark doesn't know what he's doing," and "Mark will fail" to Schechter's current and prospective clients, as well as various adult industry professionals. He also claims that Love tried to disrupt his relationships with adult industry models by trying to damage Schechter's reputation in the community, "poaching" models, attempting to get Schechter's membership in the agents' trade association LATATA canceled, and "other actions and activities meant to damage" him.

The cross-complaint also accuses Liberboim and Love of fraud regarding the initial sale of the agency, alleging that they provided false financial information in the form of the couple's 2011 tax returns, profit and loss statements and "other revenue reporting information."

Schechter released the following statement regarding his countersuit: "By nature, I am not a litigious person, but after enduring over 2 years of relentless attempts to cause financial and personal harm to my business and my personal life, and ironically having to answer to the recent ridiculous and frivolous lawsuit against me, it was time to move forward with legal action. Prior to being served with the recent ludicrous allegations, I was resolved with not pursuing my legal rights and simply continuing to run my business as I have, and enjoying the results of my efforts growing ATMLA to the status that it maintains today, being one of the top adult talent agencies in the industry. It's unfortunate that Shy chose not to take advantage of this opportunity to sell her agency for more than it was worth, and be able to open another agency in violation of an agreement and do so without any recourse. Instead, she has chose to open up the lid to 'Pandora's Box.' I have been an avid poker player for 30 years, and every so often you're dealt a hand where you not only have the best cards, often referred to as 'Holding the Nuts,' but your opponent bets and raises into you 'All in,' and I simply respond with ... 'I call.'"

At press time, AVN had not yet received its own copy of the complaint, which can be read here, nor the Answer which Schechter's attorney, Karen Tynan, had filed in response to Love's/Liberboim's original complaint. Also at press time, no hearing date had yet been set in the case.

Vivid Invites Honey Boo Boo’s Mom & Dad To Make a Sex Tape

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

Vivid Invites Honey Boo Boo's Mom & Dad To Make a Sex Tape

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.—According to TMZ.com, Vivid Entertainment Group co-CEO Steven Hirsch has sent a letter to "reality star" Honey Boo Boo's mom, "Mama June" Shannon, and her estranged husband Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson, inviting them to "seriously consider making a movie with Vivid that could earn you up to $1-million or more."

The undated letter was sent to Ms. Shannon via The Learning Channel (TLC), which aired the show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo for four full seasons, which included several "specials," before the show was summarily canceled on October 24 after it was discovered that Ms. Shannon was dating a convicted child molester, Mark Anthony McDaniel Sr.

ADVERTISEMENT


After noting that Vivid has already compiled a large library of celebrity sex tapes, Hirsch notes that, "One of the new genres that has become popular on VividTV and Vivid.com is BBW, which stands for big, beautiful women." Hirsch also assured Ms. Shannon that, "We would make the experience an enjoyable one for both of you and give you as much creative input as you would like." Hirsch enclosed his phone number and invited Ms. Shannon to "call me at your earliest convenience ... to discuss this opportunity."

Vivid, of course, is already famous for releasing hardcore movies of such celebrities as Kim Kardashian, Tila Tequila, Montana Fishburne and several others, and since most episodes of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo were seen by between one and two million viewers, Hirsch obviously hopes that a hardcore feature with the two adult "reality" stars would attract a similarly sized audience.

At press time, Hirsch was not available for comment.

Porn Retiree Michelle Sinclair Hits Big Screen in ‘Inherent Vice’

Porn Retiree Michelle Sinclair Hits Big Screen in 'Inherent Vice'

HOLLYWOOD—This weekend sees the limited theatrical release of acclaimed director Paul Thomas Anderson's new film Inherent Vice, starring (among others) Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Maya Rudolph, Benicio Del Toro, Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson ... and an actress porn fans will surely recognize most readily: Michelle Sinclair, known to them from her previous on-screen escapades as Belladonna.

Those familiar with Anderson's work will know this is hardly the first time he's thrown someone from the world of triple-X into the ring with Hollywood heavyweights; most famously, his breakout opus Boogie Nights featured AVN Hall of Famers Nina Hartley and Veronica Hart in memorable cameos. But Sinclair's Inherent Vice role may just be the biggest Anderson has given an adult industry vet to date.

ADVERTISEMENT


"I play a character named Clancy Charlock, and I am the sister of Glenn Charlock [Christopher Allen Nelson], and I am trying to find out more information about my brother's murder," Sinclair told AVN. "And so I go to Joaquin Phoenix's character, Doc Sportello, in hopes that he can give me some help. I have just about five minutes [of screen time], and most of my dialogue is with Joaquin. Near the end I have a little bit with Maya Rudolph, which was really exciting. It's a pretty big chunk there, for it being my first major motion picture."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, in fact, it's a more sizable role than those of Witherspoon, Del Toro or Rudolph ... and the venerable trade outlet notes that Sinclair "more than holds her own."

The now several-years-retired adult icon, an AVN Hall of Fame member herself, explained that the role came about because "I've been friends with Joaquin for awhile, and I'm assuming that they were in the midst of casting Inherent Vice, and he's the main character so he's very close with Paul, and I think he mentioned me to Paul, and Paul was also familiar with my work. And so they put me in touch with the casting director and asked me to come in and do a reading, and I did, and then next thing you know, I got cast. I was super excited."

Even so, she initially had her reservations about going through with the project.

"I was really excited about just the idea of being a part of a Paul Thomas Anderson movie, because I've seen so many of his films, and I just feel like he's very talented," Sinclair explained. "But then once I was speaking with the casting director about the role, there were some things that I was not interested in doing anymore. They wanted to cast me in a sex scene, and I just was like, 'You know what, I'm done with that—I've done that, it's not something I'm interested in anymore. I want something different or at least not that.' So I actually almost said no. I was basically like, 'No, I'm not interested in that, but if there's something else get back to me.' And she got back in touch with me after she talked to Paul, and he was kind of like, 'Are you crazy?' He was kind of shocked."

After she was assured, however, that there would be nothing graphic or explicit required, Sinclair relented. "I was like, 'All right. For P.T. Anderson, I'll go there,'" she said. "But what's so amazing is in the end, it actually got cut from the film, which I was very happy about. Paul was like, 'Are you mad at me?' and I was like, 'No, I'm super excited!' Because now people who don't know my previous work will have a chance to see me as just this new face. And if you've seen my work, you'll just see me doing something without sex."

Now that she's had the true Hollywood experience, Sinclair says she absolutely foresees herself pursuing it further. "One hundred percent," she asserted. "In the past, I was never really looking to do that, but I think being where I'm at now, looking back, I see that I was afraid of that. I was so afraid to go after something that I wanted, and I wanted it to just come to me. Now I realize that yes, this is something I want to pursue. I don't want it to be the only thing that I do, I don't want to put all my eggs in one basket like I've done so many times in the past, but I'd like to explore more roles and take more acting classes so I can learn. I'm sure I have so much I can do and so much to learn. The good thing about me is I'm so comfortable in front of the camera, so that makes it so much easier."

Reflecting on the transition she's still in the process of making from life in porn, Sinclair said, "You know, it's been a fuckin' ride. I have to say, being super successful in an industry and making a lot of money and then walking away from it is not easy. But I've definitely had it easier than I'm sure a lot of people, and I've got Aiden [Riley, her former husband who continues to oversee their jointly founded production company Belladonna Entertainment] to thank for that. But it's been confusing, because I never did anything else before. That was my career, and that's what I was really great at, and it's a really safe place to be. So I've been trying to figure it out. And what I've really come to realize is that variety for me is what keeps me alive. And so [I want] whatever I'm doing to be full of that."

She noted that she does have another mainstream project on the way in the near future, a horror movie she shot several years ago that has been retitled Ladies of the House and is scheduled for release in early 2015.

Inherent Vice is playing in Los Angeles at the AMC Century City 15, Landmark and ArcLight Hollywood theaters.

Google Has Very, Very Thin Skin

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

Rift with the MPAA exposes the giant's very fragile ego.

Google Has Very, Very Thin Skin

LOS ANGELES—An interesting item on TorrentFreak details a rift in what Google apparently hoped was an improvement in the relationship between it and the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) over its efforts to combat digital piracy. It didn't quite work out the way they wanted, though.

The way Andy from TF explains the scenario, "After delivering a major blow to torrent sites during October, Google must've thought the MPAA would be pleased. Instead, however, the MPAA issued a 'snarky' press release. According to a leaked email, the press release so infuriated Google's top brass that the company ended cooperation with the MPAA."

ADVERTISEMENT


In other words, the monolithic Google had its feelings hurt. Poor baby. You'd think it would have a thicker skin, but sometimes the biggest players are the most sensitive, possibly due to a guilty conscience they can't bring themselves to face.

Or maybe they're just jerks who can't admit that for years they have played a major role in the proliferation of digital piracy. Even TF admits how long it took for them to act, noting, "By most standards, this October Google really pulled out the stops. Responding to years of criticism and endless complaints that it’s one of the world’s largest facilitators of pirate content, Google came up with the goods."

They tweaked their infamous algorithms so that the rankings of what their Copyright Policy Counsel called "the most infamous sites" would rank lower. The lawyer added, “Sites with high numbers of removal notices may appear lower in search results. This ranking change helps users find legitimate, quality sources of content more easily.”

But shouldn't Google have been doing this all long? If a bad actor is finally forced to mend their ways, is a round of applause in order?

According to TF, the MPAA commented on the changes in a press release, stating in part, "Everyone shares a responsibility to help curb unlawful conduct online, and we are glad to see Google acknowledging its role in facilitating access to stolen content via search."

Sounds about right, but to the ears of Google executives those were reportedly fighting words. "In response to the snub," wrote Andy, "Google pressed the ‘ignore’ button. A top executive at Google’s policy department told the MPAA that his company would no longer 'speak or do business' with the movie group.

"In future," he added, "Google would speak with the studios directly, since 'at least three' had already informed the search engine that they 'were very happy about the new features.'"

But he also notes that underlying circumstances may have added to the MPAA's reticence in blowing kisses to Google, citing emails exchanged among MPAA execs after learning of Google's hissy-fit, suggesting "that the MPAA were trying not to affect another external matter from progressing."

One of the emails reads, in part, “We were also sensitive to the fact that Mississippi [Attorney General] Hood is expected to issue a [Civil Investigative Demand] to Google sometime this week; we did not want an unduly favorable statement by us to discourage AG Hood from moving forward."

The storm clouds will likely pass, and considering the internal MPAA emails were written in October, they may already have, but stories like this are helpful in that they provide a window into the soul of a very large corporation with a very, very fragile ego. It's to be expected. After all, corporations are only people.

Hercules to Tackle Porn in Christian Feature Film

Actor Kevin Sorbo of Hercules fame is attached as an actor and co-executive producer

Hercules to Tackle Porn in Christian Feature Film

DENVER, Colo.—Founded by a TV actor named Joseph Parella, whose IMDB bio indicates he became an Christian in 1998 after encountering "many shady characters in the adult entertainment business" in Hollywood, Miracle Pictures Studios out of Denver has a particular calling: "A movie studio system in His image, Serving & profitable."

According to its website, the studio also markets books, mostly short-form pieces of work sold on Amazon for Kindle, and does not have any full-length films under its belt, but that may be about to change.

ADVERTISEMENT


In a press release issued today, Miracle Pictures Studios has announced "the pre-production of a futuristic feature comedy called Exit Interview centered around the key witness in a landmark case about the end of the porn industry."

Kevin Sorbo of Hercules fame is attached, and also serves as one of the executive producers of the film, which is slated for a 2016 release.

The story, which is loosely based on a 2011 legal thriller titled Witness Protection, "had to be revamped due to the real-life right-turn the majority of the industry took, moving to Las Vegas since 2012."

A semi-synopsis in the PR adds, "Most US-based adult content makers relocated from Los Angeles to Nevada as a result of mandatory condom use laws that went into effect in Los Angeles County. Since the novel tells the story about a key witness whose legal testimony effectively ended the porn industry, told from the hindsight of the 2030s, it had to be rewritten to remain accurate. A studio spokesperson stated the same story will still be told, but from the point of view of the characters exiting the witness protection program."

The movie is being promoted as a "futuristic feature comedy." As the Miracle Pictures Studio website also proclaims, "Expect miracles."

London Porn Protest Turns Out the Media

London Porn Protest Turns Out the Media

LONDON—To be sure, lots protesters showed up to the demonstration outside of Parliament today to denounce Britain's odious censorship regime that took a few more steps back to the Dark Ages this month with the implementation of new regulations targeting sexual speech online. But from the photos of the event, it looks as though many more media cameras showed up to the Old Palace Yard, which is understandable considering the promise of mass face-sitting by the protesters. In the end, a reported 22 couples decided to participate in the face-sitting, the images of which are now plastered across the internet.

ADVERTISEMENT


A gimmick from the start, employing couples to sit astride one another (while clothed) was a clever way to get mass media coverage of an event whose purpose was to raise alarm about pernicious encroachments upon non-obscene sexual speech by the government, the argument being that the "slippery slope" rule of government interference is very much in play, and that Brits who think it can't be imposed upon them had better think twice about that all-too-common fatal assumption.

Indeed, today's face-sitting spectacle was more than metaphorical. Under the new regs, doing the very same thing nude is now outlawed in the United Kingdom for the purposes of production. One may presumably sit on as many faces as one likes in the privacy of one's abode, assuming no one is harmed, but turn the camera on and one could become a criminal. Watch it all you like on foreign websites, the government allows; just don't make it. They don't think it's proper. They don't think it's good for the kids.

Reason.com has a bunch of photos from the protest, and it does look like a jolly time was had by all, but a more coordinated campaign is also underway to roll back Whitehall's alarming restrictions to speech. Not only has Liberal Democrat Julian Huppert introduced a motion in parliament to annul the Audiovisual Media Services Regulations 2014, which was the immediate target of today's protest, but according to the Daily Mail, the host of the event, British sex worker Charlotte Rose intends to run for political office, making the abolition of the legislation a major campaign issue

"We've done something and we've achieved something today," she told the paper. "This is just the start."
