Somebody Help Me With Pornography Here...
Prostitution is illegal. But making porn movies is legal, right? Which means that it's illegal to pay someone for sex...unless you film it and sell copies. How does this make sense? Or rather, since it doesn't make sense, how did this bizarre double standard emerge? Does anyone know?
UPDATE: Looks like Andrew Sullivan, via a proxy, is asking the same thing. Now I feel in touch with the zeitgeist.
