Chapter Summary

The concept of 'sex industries' obviously implies the existence of capital (both financial and human), structures, equipment and organisation dedicated to offering services and/or to production or exchange of goods. The activity involved in pornographic film production is legal: actors and technicians need to be engaged; the set rented; and all the editing and post-production completed in readiness for distribution. The natural outlet for porn films and one of the most profitable forms of their exploitation is on adult entertainment television. A fair number of sexual products and services supplied in commercial outlets. The activities pursued and the contracts with clients, clearly intended to satisfy their sexual needs, raise the issue of whether these should be considered contrary to morality. A reply to the questions raised on the admissibility of sex industries could be found in the legislation and administrative by-laws on trade and its licensing.
