"Pornography is the lurid and detached exploitation of something that is essentially good, even necessary, in order to make money, while simultaneously shaming and disgracing all of those who are involved."
- Alec Baldwin (Yes, the actor!)

Now, as with all attempts to define pornography, this one is flawed in that it can also be applied to most of the children's programming on PBS where people dress in life-sized costumes to depict purple dinosaurs, mutants with TVs implanted in their bellies, and so on.
But it's damn close.
