In this time of economic troubles, Ron Miller works two jobs: porn star and criminal defense lawyer. I smell a HBO series! His site:

Valerie Boucher, who paid for her college through prostitution, is organizer of Forum XXX, a conference for sex workers being held this week in Montreal.

UK theatres, usually accustomed to editing or banning US films for questionable content, are now allowed to show Deep Throat. It will be assigned the rare "R18" designation, similar to the NC17 stateside, and will be shown alongside the documentary Inside Deep Throat.
