If you make porn with two women having sex with you, that’s fine. If you make porn with two women having sex with you while eating feces, that’s illegal.

Ira Isaacs, a man from South Bronx, was sentenced to four years in prison for five counts of selling and distributing obscene material after being arrested for peddling his poop porn, among other smut films.

Isaacs’s defense was that he was breaking boundaries. With poop porn.

The whole thing was a farce. They put artists on trial for their work. So what if I stepped over the line, artists take risks. Marcel Duchamp created a scandal with his porcelain urinal. Artists are always raising the ante.

Duchamp had Fountain. Isaacs had poop porn. Apparently, they deserve to be talked about in the same breath.
