Really, how does this work? As long as you film the act and sell it, it is doesn't count as prostitution?

I came to the same realization a month or two ago as well... My explanation is that the government probably gets a cut of the profits made somehow... Either that or we're the only two people who've ever thought about this before.

Because you aren't paying to have sex with anyone?

cuz 2 people are getting paid to do something with each other as opposed to one person giving another person money for sex.

totally different.

not at all man. Prostitution is paying to have services, porn is paying (sometimes) to watch dirty happenings. I can see where you got your arguement, but it's really wrong.

The "actors" are being paid to have sex. If that's not prostitution I don't know what is. Apparently if you put a camera in front of them it's suddenly all different.

Technically, "pornography" means prostitutes getting paid for porn pics or movies, I really don't think there are a lot of porn stars who are not into classic prostitution as well.

"porne" = Greek for prostitute, "graphein" = Greek for to describe something, so "porne graphein" = description/depiction of a prostitute...

meh... I'm bored...

I'll do my best to explain...

Prostitution is basically paying someone to have sex with you.

Pornography is when someone's bankrolling you to have sex with another person/actor. The person paying isn't having sex with anyone, and there's usually a whole film crew involved who are also being paid not to have sex.

Wow, that sounds confusing. But that's all I could come up with. :(

wouldn't prostitutes legally have to claim their street sluttin' earnings on their W-2's? sure would suck to be a prostitute and get audited for like $15 earned on the street for a ZJ.

well the video would probably be legal, but the initial act of bopping the hooker would still be illegal. now if you were to give a bum a sandwhich for his time and pay a hooker to give him a rimmer and film that...you might be in the clear. only thing i wonder about is if there is a Porn-actors guilde or a union of some kind, or a "players association". like only card carrying members can get away with it.

yeah, i've thought about this before, and i understand the "difference" in paying someone to have sex with another person vs. paying them to have sex with you...HOWEVER, it seems that the person(s) being exploited (otherwise known as those the law is made to protect) are still being paid for sex...woo hoo for legalized prostitution
