Without getting too high up on the First Amendment soap-box, this type of regulation tends to invoke the constitutional scholar in all of us. Without careful and meticulous drafting, any such law will inevitably encompass content as innocuous as the mere display of genitals. Specifically, was the content created for private consumption or commercial use?
Given the widespread creation and sharing of private erotica, a substantial amount of pornographic material would presumably be unaffected by the legislation. In a very short time, Iceland will undoubtedly find itself at the age-old prohibition impasse, asking which holds more clout: As shown with most government-sanctioned goods or services, a black market develops; those participating eventually monopolize the marketplace; a consistent profit is generated; and ultimately standard supply and demand principles are used to exploit and perpetuate a marketplace devoid of legislative supervision.
Government-imposed prohibitions might change behavior, but a behavioral change does not prove that the problem was solved; only that it has been forced underground. Ultimately, Iceland is unlikely to become a porn free zone irrespective of the pending legislation. By the close of , the Republican presidential hopefuls had their work cut out for them.
Despite consistent double-digit polling numbers since early fall, January claimed another candidate in former Utah Governor, Jon Huntsman. Despite suspending his candidacy back in December amidst allegations of sexual misconduct , Cain has done his best to remain in the spotlight, still lobbying for his Plan and has yet to formally endorse one of his former competitors.
Paul is applauded for his valiant effort, but ultimately directed by the GOP powers-that-be to graciously keep the rebel rousing within the confines of the Texas state line. Former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, was thought to be down and out this past summer after a series of questionable spending excursions and the infamous mass exodus of several high-ranking campaign officials.
But ever the true politician, Newt has overcome the instability of his early campaign and gained enough momentum to be considered a genuine presidential hopeful. Probably the biggest candidate surprise of the campaign thus far is former Pennsylvania Senator, Rick Santorum. So what do the Republican Presidential candidates have to say about adult entertainment issues? Our nation is suffering a pandemic of harm from pornography that is readily available — even to children on the Internet and in other venues.
In his response to MIM, Santorum wrote: If elected President, I will appoint an Attorney General who will do so. In a one-on-one interview with MIM staffers, Gingrich was asked if he will enforce existing laws that make distribution of hard-core adult pornography illegal, he responded: The only candidate to reference online content in his written reply to the MIM demand, Romney stated: This can be accomplished with increased parental involvement and enhanced supervision of our children.
While this may not be tantamount to accepting a donation from Max Hardcore or Extreme Associates, this minor campaign faux pas is going to raise more than a few eyebrows. The stakes are high for the country and our Constitutional freedoms. Gas up the DeLorean, because Orrin Hatch is taking us back to The Task Force was a special Justice Department unit set up during the first Bush administration as a result of conservatives reacting to the abundance of allegedly obscene material available on the Internet.
What would Trump do? Notably, as this blog post goes to print, reports of adult filmmaker, Ira Isaacs , having been indicted on five new obscenity charges are hitting the newswire. Originally slated to go to trial in , the case was postponed due to the controversial recusal of Judge Alex Kozinski. So how does all this ambiguity ultimately affect the adult industry?
This industry has traditionally been used as a tool in political agendas, unfortunately resulting in the First Amendment as the inevitable loser all too often. This article was drafted with the purpose of addressing all political agendas affecting the adult entertainment industry and in no way was intended to act as a political endorsement of any candidate.
It should also be noted that the author is not associated with any election campaigns or a member of any political party. Although the FTC has previously reprimanded a handful of companies for affiliate program advertising issues, this week was the first action issued by the FTC that resulted in a fine. Tennessee-based Legacy Learning Systems, Inc. Based on this business model, the FTC accused Legacy of false advertising by misleading potential customers into believing the reviews written by its affiliates reflected the unbiased views of ordinary consumers, therefore violating the FTC Act.
If the disclosures are not present, then Legacy must immediately terminate the affiliate. Furthermore, Legacy must provide all future and current affiliates with a copy of the Consent Order entered into with the FTC and a signed statement by the affiliate that it received the order and agrees to comply with the FTC requirements or risk being terminated by the affiliate program.
Probably not the best way to introduce your company to a new affiliate. That being said, sites that engage in any type of compensated review system as a form of advertising are going to feel the aftermath of this one. Affiliate programs, like most marketing tactics, are about the bottom line — when the only alternative to ridiculously impractical mandatory monitoring is the FTC breathing down your throat, it makes you wonder how long until review affiliate program operators cut their losses and just shut down these programs completely.
Oddly, however, the adult industry has lagged behind, in its recognition of consumer demand for ala carte-type pricing models employed by other facets of the entertainment industry.

The sex industry also called the sex trade consists of businesses which either directly or indirectly provide sex-related products and services or adult entertainment. The industry includes activities involving direct provision of sex-related services, such as prostitution , strip clubs , host and hostess clubs and sex-related pastimes, such as pornography , sex-oriented men's magazines , sex movies , sex toys and fetish and BDSM paraphernalia.
Sex channels for television and pre-paid sex movies for on demand , are part of the sex industry, as are adult movie theaters , sex shops , and strip clubs. Prostitution is a main component of the sex industry and may take place in a brothel , at a facility provided by the prostitute, at a client's hotel room, in a parked car, or on the street. Often this is arranged through a pimp or an escort agency.
Prostitution involves a prostitute or sex worker providing sexual services to a client. In some cases, the prostitute is at liberty to determine whether she or he will engage in a particular type of sexual activity, but forced prostitution and sexual slavery does exist in some places around the world. The legality of prostitution and associated activities soliciting, brothels, procuring varies by jurisdiction. Yet even where it is illegal, a thriving underground business usually exists because of high demand and the booming revenue that can be made by pimps, brothel owners, escort agencies, and traffickers.
The premises where people come to engage in sexual activity with a prostitute is a brothel,  though for legal or cultural reasons such premises may describe themselves as massage parlors , bars , strip clubs or by some other description.
Sex work in a brothel is considered safer than street prostitution. Prostitution and the operation of brothels is legal in some countries, but illegal in others.
For instance, there are legal brothels in Nevada, USA , due to the legalization of prostitution in some areas of the state. In countries where prostitution and brothels are legal, brothels may be subject to many and varied restrictions. Forced prostitution is usually illegal as is prostitution by or with minors , though the age may vary. Some countries prohibit particular sex acts. In some countries, brothels are subject to strict planning restrictions and in some cases are confined to designated red-light districts.
Some countries prohibit or regulate how brothels advertise their services, or they may prohibit the sale or consumption of alcohol on the premises. In some countries where operating a brothel is legal, some brothel operators may chose to operate illegally. Some men and women may travel away from their home to engage with local prostitutes, in a practice called sex tourism , though the destination pattern tends to differ between them. Sex tourism may arise as a result of stringent anti-prostitution laws in a tourist's home country, but can create social problems in the host country.
Businesses that offer prostitution services tend to cluster around military bases. The British naval port of Portsmouth had a flourishing local sex industry in the 19th century, and until the early s there were large red light districts near American military bases in the Philippines. The Monto red-light district of Dublin , one of the largest in Europe, gained most of its custom from the British soldiers stationed in the city; indeed it collapsed after Irish independence was achieved and the soldiers left.
Sex industries are also small but growing in several college towns. Prostitution is extremely prevalent in Asia, particularly in Southeast Asian nations such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, and Thailand. According to Lin Lim, an International Labour Organization official who directed a study on prostitution in Southeast Asia, "it is very likely that women who lose their jobs in manufacturing and other service sectors and whose families rely on their remittances may be driven to enter the sex sector.
Conversely, the sex industry in China has been revived by the nation's recent economic success. The nation's liberal economic policies in the early s have been credited with revitalizing the sex industry as rural communities rapidly expand into highly developed urban centers.
The city was declared a special economic zone in ; by the twenty-first century what had been a small fishing community developed an advanced commercial sector and a correspondingly large sex industry. Their governments are challenged in this regard because of the differing contexts that surround prostitution, from voluntary and financially beneficial labor to virtual slavery. The increasing economic prominence of China and Japan have made these issues a global concern. The sex industry employs millions of people worldwide,  mainly women.
These range from the sex worker, also called adult service provider ASP or adult sex provider , who provides sexual services, to a multitude of support personnel.
Sex workers can be prostitutes, call girls , pornographic film actors , pornographic models , sex show performers, erotic dancers , striptease dancers, bikini baristas , telephone sex operators, cybersex operators, or amateur porn stars for online sex sessions and videos.
In addition, like any other industry, there are people who work in or service the sex industry as managers, film crews, photographers, website developers and webmasters , sales personnel, book and magazine writers and editors, etc. Some create business models, negotiate trade, make press releases, draw up contracts with other owners, buy and sell content, offer technical support, run servers, billing services, or payroll, organise trade shows and various events, do marketing and sales forecasts, provide human resources, or provide tax services and legal support.
Usually, those in management or staff do not have direct dealings with sex workers, instead hiring photographers who have direct contact with the sex workers. Pornography is professionally marketed and sold to adult webmasters for distribution on the Internet. Other members of the sex industry include the hostesses that work in many bars in China.
These hostesses are women who are hired by men to sit and accompany them. This accompaniment entails toasting the men, drinking with them, making conversation, and putting up with flirting and sexual statements. Although this is by no means all of the woman who work as hostesses in the bars of China, they are labeled as "Grey Women".
This means that while they are not prostitutes, they are also not seen as suitable marriage partners for many men. Other woman who are lumped into this category are the permanent mistresses or "second wives" that many Chinese business men have. The Chinese government puts in effort to keep the fact that many of these hostesses are also prostitutes and make up a large sex industry.
They do not want their image to the rest of the world to be sullied. One large difference is that hostesses are given a great deal of freedom to choose whether or not they would like to service a client, although refusal does sometimes spark conflict. Pornography is the explicit portrayal of explicit sexual subject matter for the purposes of sexual arousal and erotic satisfaction.
A pornographic model poses for pornographic photographs. A pornographic film actor or porn star performs in pornographic films. In cases where only limited dramatic skills are involved, a performer in pornographic films may be called a pornographic model.
Porn can be provided to the consumer in a variety of media, ranging from books , magazines , postcards , photos , sculpture , drawing , painting , animation , sound recording , film, video , or video game. However, when sexual acts are performed for a live audience, by definition it is not pornography, as the term applies to the depiction of the act, rather than the act itself. Thus, portrayals such as sex shows and striptease are not classified as pornography.
The first home- PCs capable of network communication prompted the arrival of online services for adults in the late s and early s. The wide-open early days of the World Wide Web quickly snowballed into the dot-com boom , in-part fueled by an incredible global increase in the demand for and consumption of pornography and erotica.
