Why not create a state run porno enterprize?

May be a bit off-topic, but I'm not sure how there is even still a market for pornography. Have people never heard of the internet? It's full of billions of photos and millions of videos for free. Who the fuck is still paying for porn?!

Well, we could give the state a monopoly on porn by blocking all foreign porn sites from Icelandic viewers. That way people HAVE to watch the Icelandic porn instead if they want any.

Sure, but then you'd have a bunch of sites doing siterips and image galleries and people uploading home-made stuff. It would still be available for free, so why would people bother to pay for it?

If the state has a monopoly on porn then other people can't create it. Doesn't matter if it us home made or not.

...because that's going to stop people?

There are various types of illegal porn, and they're still getting made. The state can try to stop people making their own porn or stealing and re-posting government porn, but there are always going to be people who flout the ban.

By that logic there should already be lots of home made porn sites made by Icelanders even though porn isn't legal. And yet there aren't.

There is only 1 I can think off, which was created recently and it even made it into the news because of it.

Im not icelandic, but I cant imagine any government run porn wuld be especially great. I dont know what your national budget looks like but i dont think the top of the list would be "make porno."

not to mention to get the start thats going ot be taxes (if iceland has those) and I know if the US told me they were going to use my taxes to make porn I'd just tell them i'd go to water park with a camcorder and be just fine.

you dont want to live int hat kind of police state. I dont know what Iceland does now, but dont let them get their foot in the door by way of "well, we shut off all porn from other countries, we cant possibly allow other things to corrupt our youth.

I would like consider myself a writer, so I was just using the word artist in the general sense. And I must admit I find such things pointless, but then again that is probably because it simply is not and never will be my medium. Still, I actually have a simple answer for that. Porn is by definition lacking artistic merit. That is precisely how one seperates it from erotica. Once you call something you have produced porn, you have essentially claimed it is not art.

And I agree about that as well. I'd just say that porn is beneath even the vast majority of artistic efforts on the list.

Out of interest, how is porn devoid of artistic merit? I'm curious.

Legal definitions mostly. That is a part of the American legal definition of the term obscene, which porn is classified as. I also think that part of the definition is actually rather usefull. Note that I am saying that to be porn a work must lack artistic merit, not that having porn like qualities means it lacks artistic merit.

So you'd be spending tax money or charging Icelanders money for something they could get free without any government action whatsoever. What is the point of this, again?

Government gets more money.

At the expense of its people... why not just raise taxes?

...or maybe you should focus on getting the ban on privately produced porn lifted instead?

Though I'll admit I'd probably buy a government produced porn video just for the pure ...WTF?!-factor. An official Scandinavian one would undoubtedly be hilarious:

"Hey there, totally equal woman, I love and respect you for your personality and many qualifications, but have dirty male needs. Would you perhaps take pity on me, and enthusiastically consent to a very gentle and respectful intercourse? Only if it is a true expression of your female sexuality, of course, and is solely a representation of our mutual love, and in no way contains elements of seduction, trade-offs, or anything else unfit for a hyper idealized romantic love story.

I must inform you though that immediately afterwards I'll be forced to have sex with a variety of coloured, gay, crippled, and transgendered people, so that no group is left without a positive role model."

Oh yeah...

This would cause me to actually pay for porn for once in my life. I'd have to grab a copy before it was discontinued due to lack of sales as the best comedy evar. Bonus points if people with typically-porno level acting ability are in it. =p

Looked at anonymous internet services, huh? That's one of those things I can see all kinds of entirely reasonable and entirely valid uses for, but you can't go in without assuming that stuff like that is all over the place, and that you won't, at least in theory, end up hosting or distributing some of it yourself (especially with the way Freenet works) -- that's quite literally the nature of the beast.

Porn is so cheap to make that it would be easy to make the money back and more.

Know what's even cheaper to make? Changing a tax rate.

Or paying for the porn, if it raises the same revenue... so... what is the point of your proposal?

Why you say 'government produced porn' I image the guy from accounting dressed in a business jacket and tie, with no pants and his wang hanging out, pointing at a board that scheduling and diagrams sexual positions and uses graphs to analyze the optimal sexual methods while a bewildered naked prostitute looks on from a mattress. Is that weird?

I think the biggest hurdle is convincing your constituents (does that term apply to people in Iceland?) and the public that government run porn is a good use of tax money. Some people prefer fixing bumps in the road over fixing the bump in your pants.

I wouldn't be surprised to find that Credit card companies are starting up these free sites. People go there and don't get ID theft, saving Credit card companies money.

I think government-made pornography has just topped my list of things that I'd never, ever like to see, ever if I can avoid it.

This is a list previously only occupied by The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence), and every episode of Two and a Half Men.

Get Yohanna to act in one and I'm sold!

... not that she's particularly hot, but she's the only name that comes to mind when I think of Iceland. XD

Silvanus:

God, that movie was atrocious - and I thought the first one was bad!

TheBelgianGuy:
So, like, Obama should have to act in a porn movie? I can see him delivering pizza.

How do you like my stimulus package?

Honest question, why did you see the second one if you didn't like the first one?

I love the fact that in America the State runs the lottery. Its so much fun that I can voluntarily be screwed by the State.

Verbatim:

Witty Name Here:
Oh just imagine all the amazing titles Government Produced Porn could have!

"Social Sex-Curity"

"Air Force Fun"

"Stimulus Package 2: Big Bank Bangin'"

"Coming out of the presidential cabinet" (for those people on the other side of the fence)

"Electoral Co-Ed College"

If they don't do this, we'd be missing out on some of the greatest porn known to man! I'm all for the idea.

Silliness aside, banning porn seems kind of silly in my opinion. Though I can understand where they're coming from, some women are unfortunately "pressured" into the industry to pay off debt, and others don't want their daughters seeing it as a way to make "easy money".

Still, banning it is idiotic.

Considering they made a movie named "who's nailin pailn" there's a good chance they made those films too already...

I started searching these on bing and I did find a porn video that pretends to be set on Air Force One (not called air force fun though). I doubt I can link to it though.

Father Time:

I like bad movies. :P

I know someone that that movie made vomit.

Admittedly, she didn't see the whole thing, just out of nowhere saw the bit with the woman stomping on her newborn baby's head because it's in the way of the accelerator, but still.

State porn sounds awesome, what a great way to show your support for your country then by dutifully buying it's pornography.

That was an pretty decent episode of Parks and Recreation!

Oh, wait... what?

All I can think really is just 'bit weird' :/
