who will buy

Andrew Sullivan pointed out that it is legal to pay two people to have sex and film them and sell the film; it just isn't legal to pay two people to have sex and simply watch them. That's what I call absurd.

Tyler Cowen of Marginal Revolution on the legalization of prostitution

Roger Matthews in the Guardian, initially in favour, changed his mind.

There is a scene cut out of the film, "Borat", in which he enters a hotel room in Los Angeles dressed as a room service waiter carrying a tray and comes upon the filming of a scene for a sex film. The actor and actress are having intercourse on the bed. When she encourages him to take off his clothes and join them, Borat acts dumbfounded. "You want have sexytime with me?" he asks. "Yes, yes, come on," she says. Borat stalls for time and, presumably, laughs, though it's not very funny, just awkward. In one of the gaps in the dialogue, the actress exclaims, to no one, "Oh, I love my work. I just love my work." Borat, played by an actor who in real life is conservative about sex to the point of being prudish, is not able to make the scene work and so it was cut from the film presented to the public.
