Jacking Up The Price of Porn

In California, state lawmakers are considering raising the tax on porn. Check it out:

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Strippers and porn stars traveled to Sacramento Monday for a hearing on adopting a tax increase on porn.

The Assembly Revenue and Taxation Committee is scheduled to consider AB 2914, an adult entertainment tax that will be boosted from eight to 25 percent in a proposal to tax strip clubs, porno videos and other adult entertainment.

Opponents of the bill said the large tax increase constitutes censorship and would make California products less competitive. (NBC11)

Damn, as if the price of gas isn’t killing me, now this! I’m getting hit hard, folks. Pun intended.

Also, I’d love to see a pic of the sex industry workers in Sacramento. And I also wonder if this will apply to the internet, and how internet porn has affected the business of the video stores/strip joints over the last decade. Hmm, sounds like I’ve just come up with my Ph.D. dissertation topic…
