POLL: Santorum v. Porn—Too Much?

22 Mar

Rick Santorum’s position paper discussing how he will crack down on pornography if elected to Presidency has ruffled some feathers—and not only in the adult entertainment industry.  MSNBC reported earlier this week, as reported on an article from XBiz, that 74% of people polled felt that the federal government should back down from such a strong enforcement of pornography.   In response to Santorum’s claims that porn is causing a “pandemic of harm” and contributing to violence against women, leaders in adult entertainment have responded through an article from MSNBC:  Hustler’s Larry Flynt says “Nonsense,” and Vivid’s Steven Hirsch states “Absolutely no proof.”  Flynt even continued by reminding readers that President Lyndon B. Johnson spent millions of dollars in 1969 to determine the detrimental effects of pornography… And came up with nothing.  From MSBNC, “‘You have guys like Santorum come along and they bring out the bogeyman every chance they get,’ Flynt said. ‘You will be hard-pressed to find anyone that can point out to you a study that shows harm is caused to anyone exposed to porn materials.'”

Most notably, Steve Hirsch, owner of Vivid Entertainment has stated that Vivid will continue shooting without condoms—even if that means his company will be moving out of Los Angeles county.  Many major adult entertainment corporations are currently located in Los Angeles county, including Hirsch’s Vivid and Larry Flynt‘s Hustler, which are located in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, respectively; the move away from L.A. may prove to be detrimental to the economy in an already-struggling southern California.  In fact, the Los Angeles Times reports that local economists found that adult entertainment made $4 billion in profits and provided up to 20,000 jobs annually to various aspects of the entertainment industry.
