In the past 2 years there has been a major increase of law breaking in pornography:

Models in the indie industry will do a lot of things to increase their sales, to gain attention, and to remain relevant. This even includes breaking the law. Public videos are a major factor in this, as they gain more and more popularity, more and more models begin to provide them. While most people think it’s all part of the care-free exhibitionist life style of being an indie producer, it can actually land you in some serious hot water.

“Public indecency” generally refers to acts involving nudity or sexual activity in view of the public, often with the intent to shock, offend, or arouse. It includes criminal offenses like indecent exposure and lewd conduct. Some states use the term “public indecency” to refer to other offenses relating to public nudity, including the display or promotion of obscene materials. – Justia.com

 

Public Videos are in fact illegal:

What starts off as a fun fetish to partake in can lead to serious legal issues, and public indecency laws have been around since 1991. This leads me to question, why did most porn sites just start cracking down on public videos in 2017/2018? In most “terms of service” that sites provide it will very vaguely say something along the lines of “don’t break the law” but it seems like up until recently it’s been more of a “break the law if you’d like, just don’t get caught” scenario. For example, it wasn’t until the very public shaming and calling out of Lana Rain that ManyVids chose to make strict rules governing public videos, and even now they are still allowed but you have to blur out faces of people in the video that aren’t the performer.
If you aren’t up to date on the Lana Rain Scandal, long story short: she masturbate in front of a public children’s park, and then tried to justify it by saying:

ManyVids promoting this “walk the line” mentality within the porn world of rewarding models who can get away with performing illegal acts is part of the reason why so many indie stars think that if they are ever caught they won’t face repercussions. This isn’t the first time ManyVids has dabbled in something controversial with a less than stellar reaction – a model briefly posted a video of her dog licking her genitals and immediately removed it, but this model only faced a suspension and a lecture. Bestiality is ILLEGAL, yet the model in question only faced a suspension. ManyVids is not the only site with a lot to make up for, but they’re the only site who has claimed to be ethical. Tube sites are probably the biggest law-breakers, promoting public videos as well as many other taboo subjects that would likely get you suspended/banned from any clip selling site.

 

When you read the title of this piece, you might have thought I’d come to some conclusion and justify why it’s allowed.

In reality, it’s not. It shouldn’t be. If you get caught doing these things you can pay fines, end up on probation, or even in jail. Playing with the law is no joke, and please do not let porn sites convince you otherwise just because it’s a high-selling topic.

 

How can you get the same exposure for taboo videos without actually breaking the law?

Simulated public videos are the way to go for getting the traffic to your “public” videos. Gather up a few friends in a private outdoor setting, rent out a location, or if you have friends who own businesses use them during closed hours. This is safer for you, and for everyone around you.

Can I break the law to make porn?

I think the answer is pretty obvious here, if it breaks the law do not do it. Do not rape a dog for views, do not cut yourself open for views, do not involve non-consenting parties for views, and you should never have a problem with your content or have a risk of getting legal actions taken against you.
