Noted: “Everyone who watches movies knows that just below the friendly surface of American Suburbia lies violence, depravity, secret gay neighbors, and Dean Stockwell in eyeshadow.” In 2006, two porn purveyors (followed by other associates) were arrested in Florida. An undercover officer had applied as a “model” for their website, the charmingly-named cumonherface.com. (Which is still in business.) The would-be model was told that the pornographers had “recruited up to 100 local men and women.”
This case is exactly the reason that fark.com has a category simply called “Florida.”
So now the porn operators are the toast of the Internet because they’re showing that Google searches prove that everyone in Pensacola wants to see naughty bits. While this is, you know, absolutely true, and the idea of community standards to define “obscenity” is laughable—dating as it does from before Al Gore invented the Internet—it’s not really going to help with the racketeering or prostitution charges. And unfortunately for our pornographer pals here, the Supreme Court not long ago refused to hear United States v. Extreme Associates.
