New York adult stores hope to defend themselves in the Supreme Court against council censorship


Link Here 19th October 2017
New York State sealNew York's adults stores have so far fought a losing battle in their defence against the moralists censors of the local authority.

After losing a 20-year legal battle with the city in June that outlawed most of the remaining XXX stores, business owners are hoping to bring their case to the Supreme Court.

Erica Dubno, an attorney who has represented the industry in its long fight against the city, said she plans to submit an appeal by the end of the year. She estimates the court will decide early next year whether to review the case. Dubno acknowledged the industry's chances are slim. The Supreme Court receives about 7,500 review requests each year and usually hears about 80 cases.

The city has agreed to hold off enforcing the ban until after the Supreme Court decides whether to hear the case.

Up until now the stores have been trying to evade controls on sex shops by stocking a large proportion of non sex items and then hoping to fly under the regulation radar as general stores.

 Obituary: Hugh Hefner...

Playboy founder dies aged 91

playboy first issueHugh Hefner died on Wednesday, at the age of 91 at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles.

His son Cooper Hefner, chief creative officer of Playboy Enterprises, said his father lived an exceptional and impactful life as a media and cultural pioneer and a leading voice behind some of the most significant social and cultural movements of our time in advocating free speech, civil rights, and sexual freedom. He defined a lifestyle and ethos that lie at the heart of the Playboy brand, one of the most recognizable and enduring in history.

Perhaps the impacfulness of Hefner can be gauged from comments from his opponents, the Catholic News Agency which writes:

Christian leaders in the fight against pornography have called the death of Hugh Hefner tragic, while reminding Catholics to take seriously the impact of Hefner's legacy on American culture.

Alan Sears, founder of the misleadingly named Alliance Defending Freedom said:

Nobody should ever take joy in anybody's passing [...BUT...] There have been thousands of people praying for Hugh Hefner's conversion for years, and the saddest part to me of his passing, is that we see no evidence of conversion on his part. Apparently up to the end, he took joy in this exploitation of women, of sexuality and all the other things that the secular media is lauding him for.

Hugh Hefner's commitment to liberty should be his lasting legacy.

 

 Update: Stormy times...

Florida bill introduced claiming porn as a public health crisis


Link Here 22nd September 2017  full story: US politicans and porn harms...US states claim porn to be a public health hazard
Florida state sealFlorida could be the next state to claim pornography as a public health crisis if a Republican lawmaker has his say. State Representative Ross Spano has filed the claim in bill, H.R. 157. Strangely he doesn't seem to have spotted more pressing and obvious dangers such as those resulting from unchecked climate change.

Similar to measures passed recently in other moralist tates, the proposal calls on Florida to acknowledge the alleged dangers of pornography and address the need for education, prevention, research and policy change to protect the citizens of this state.

Other language included in the Republican's two-page resolution accuses pornography of contributing to the hypersexualization of adolescents and claims that kids who view adult content are at a higher risk of developing low self-esteem, eating disorders and a desire to engage in dangerous sexual behavior. The bill also calls pornography potentially biologically addictive and orders the state to create recovery programs from porn addicts.

Lawrence Walters, a porn industry attorney who practices in Florida commented:

This is an embarrassment to the State of Florida. We are more evolved, and have too much respect for individual freedom, to be having this debate. Hopefully it will be short-lived.
