Behind the Beads

Ezra is right -- Joe Francis is scum.
He is the founder of the Girls Gone Wild empire, in which barely-legal girls on spring break are induced to lift up their tops for petty sums or even nothing but a trucker's cap and 15 minutes of "fame". About as innocuous as you can get in the porn industry, right?

Maybe. I don't know. But if it is, I don't really want to think about what the rest of it is like. I'd like to think that the new era of porn superstars we keep hearing about will usher in better business practices along with the greater mainstream visibility.
