Welcome to the Hotel Porn-is-for-ya

“A coalition of 13 conservative groups – including the Family Research Council and Concerned Women for America – took out full-page ads in some editions of USA Today earlier this month urging the Justice Department and FBI to investigate whether some of the pay-per-view movies widely available in hotels violate federal and state obscenity laws,” as reported here by The Cincinnati Post. Of course the biggest purveyors of pornography in the country are — you guessed it — the telephone and cable companies. They have BIG contracts with networks. And video suppliers have BIG contracts with hotels. According to Free Speech Coalition’s Web site, the adult industry publication Adult Video News reports that hotel room “Video On Demand” revenues totaled $500 million in 2005. In 2004, almost 40% of the nation’s hotels offered adult movie options. Read more about that here.

What does all this mean? I don’t know. But I’m thinking that, until pay-per-view becomes free-per-view, the federal and state pornography squads will focus their efforts elsewhere.
