The lie about pornography is that it is about a healthy love for human sexuality. The body beautiful. The miracle of flesh. The Internet publication of nude photos of Dr. Laura Schlessinger, a radio talk-show host, shows what a lie that pretense is. The photos were taken 23 years ago by a one-time lover and present-day louse, Bill Ballance, who sold the photos against Schlessinger's wishes for "tens of thousands of dollars. But most browsers aren't signing onto Web sites to appreciate Schlessinger's curves or her taut stomach or saucy smile.
A federal court rules that the Internet Entertainment Group holds a valid copyright and can resume posting photos of the radio personality. In a blow to the year-old radio personality, the U. Laura, as her 18 million daily listeners call her, took IEG to court on Friday and Judge Dean Pregerson temporarily barred the site from publishing the photos. As reported, however, the judge lifted the restraining order yesterday. The photos now are back online and free to adult Net users for the next week.
But there are some celebrities who stripped down back in the day that might just surprise you. One of the most striking beauties of all time, Elizabeth Taylor was notorious for her cool reserve and multiple marriages. But Taylor never, ever allowed her nude image to be released to the public. Thankfully, most of them never doffed their clothes, but one did. Paula Jones was an Arkansas state employee who accused Bill of sexily harassing her.
