Since folks are talking about Glenn Greenwald's previous career in porn, it seems like a good time to revisit a 2008 piece I wrote on Max Hardcore and obscenity that features Greenwald: "To the Max."
Reading Greenwald's post, I wondered if he had ever watched a Max Hardcore movie. I sent him an email, asking if he had.
A few minutes later, I received a reply. "No, I haven't. But I read about its content. Why?"
I replied: "You should."
He replied: "I really don't care what consenting adults do with one another in order to entertain themselves or please themselves sexually--I'm not a busy body trying to sit in judgment of what other adults choose to do with themselves, especially in their sex lives. Not even the Government claimed that these films involved minors or non-consent, so as far as I'm concerned, it's nobody's business what they do, and whatever they do isn't going to change my mind in the slightest."[READ]
