Senators Seek Porn Tax

And heading it up is…yes…wait for it..a Democrat. Sen. Blanche Lincoln, an Arkansas Democrat, claims this porn tax will make the internet a “safer place for children” and the bill would impose a 25 percent tax on the revenue of most adult-themed Web sites. But…..will we be passing that bill onto you, the consumer?

As an adult company owner, my first thought and hope is that this is the first time the adult entertainment industry has been “legitimized” and as long as the government is making more money from us then maybe they’ll stop riding our collective asses (hey…new video idea right there and you were here when it happened 🙂

But seriously folks….how in fuck’s sake can they say that we’re evil, obscene, smelly, God-less, and should be removed from the planet but then impose a tax on us. Doesn’t make sense. Christ..I just had a horrible thought. What if they make us state-controlled like liquor. They determine our selling hours, our prices, they run the stores, and no porn on Sundays! teehee.

It’s not just the government who take advantage of adult companies though. Yahoo (and others) do the same. Did you know that if you run a non-adult website and want a listing in Yahoo’s Directory that it costs you $299.00 for them to bump you to the top of the list (but doesn’t guarantee inclusion)? Then it’s $299.00 a year “renewal fee”. If you’re an adult website, it’s $699.00 for the bump and then $699.00 every year after. I assume they must have their reasons, but I have no clue what they are (nor does anybody I’ve ever met). Of course after bitching about it, we paid them the money for our listing 🙂

Like everything else the government fucks with me about, I’ll be keeping my eye on this one too.
