View Full Version : Rick Santorum wants to ban hardcore pornography

03-16-2012, 07:36 PM

Rick Santorum has made a campaign promise to bar "hardcore pornography" from American websites, magazines and television, but industry giants who produce much of the nation's porn aren't worried that the crusading candidate will stop the multibillion dollar industry from churning out the next "Deep Throat."

"I don't see a danger," Michael Lucas, New York's largest producer of gay adult films, told Yahoo News. "There's no danger that he will be the Republican Party nominee."

Santorum's campaign posted a position paper on its website in February that vowed to "vigorously" enforce obscenity laws and restrict the distribution of hardcore pornography, which it says has reached "pandemic" levels. The former Pennsylvania senator said he will "prohibit distribution of hardcore (obscene) pornography on the Internet, on cable/satellite TV, on hotel/motel TV, in retail shops and through the mail or by common carrier." A spokesman for Santorum's presidential campaign did not return a request for comment.

Lucas, who grew up in the former Soviet Union and immigrated to the United States in 1997 after working in Europe as a male prostitute, founded Lucas Entertainment in 1998, which flourished into a mega-enterprise that produces some of the most lavish gay porn films in the industry. His side company, Lucas Raunch, boasts a repertoire of hardcore fetish videos that are so explicit that Canadian officials banned copies from the country in 2009.

"This is not what Ronald Reagan envisioned," Lucas said after reviewing Santorum's plan. "This is not what the Founding Fathers envisioned. This is what Rick Santorum envisions. And I think the guy is crazy."

Lucas, by the way, considers himself a conservative, votes Republican and donates generously to several libertarian and right-wing causes. And when he casts a ballot in the November election, he hopes it will be for Mitt Romney.

"I would support Romney of course," the director of "Men in Stockings" and "Hunt & Plunge" told Yahoo News. "There is nobody else to support."

"I am not in love with him, but I like him," he added of Romney. "I don't see any danger coming from Romney when it comes to porn. It's just not there. And I think he will be much better than President Obama. Not that it will be difficult to be better than President Obama."

Government regulation of the internet and free speech? Good luck with that...

Sam the Eagle will be nominated for the new Department of Morals under a Santorum presidency.

Santorum is a complete idiot. I wouldn't even hire him to clean my toilets let alone vote for him for any type of public office.

If they took all the porn off the internet, there would only be one website left, and it'd be called Bringbacktheporn.com

Why is this even a topic being brought up? Well I know why, because he's trying to drum up votes by speaking up about topics that deal with sex because quite a few people get so worked up about that type of thing. However, I'd hardly list porn as being a problem that washington needs to tackle. It's not hard to stay away from if you don't want to see it. I get that it's a concern when concerning children, but a parent should take responsibility for that.

I'd hire him to organize my porn.

I wouldn't hire him to do that either. He wouldn't do any work because he would be too busy watching it on the low. :winking0071:
