1. It must be patently offensive, in an of itself.
2. It must appeal to the prurient interest. (Must be sexually oriented.)
3. (This one is difficult to remember and from what I hear has been re-interpreted over and over.) When taken as a whole, it must lack artistic, literary, or political content. (Very unsure of wording here, I hope you get what I am trying to say.)
Porn is something for which there is seemingly an endless demand. If you have it, they will beat a path to your door and beg to buy it.But apparently given the amount of Spam I get on a daily basis sells pretty well.
True. Depictions of intimacy are not what the porn customers are after.Or have no interest in presenting it in their productions.
I've lived in Flyover Country(tm) for the past 30 years. Although most of the people I associate with, in work, socially, etc., seem to have a good handle on mature topics, many do not.I would agree - but there are millions of people who would not.
Unfortunately, I get the feeling that many of these customers of the porn producers (like customers of the "adult industry" as a whole) are those who vehemently disavow their interest in such things. Yes, we all know the type, and there are countless of them here in Flyover Country and on the coasts.
