The plot is serious

Discussing obscenity and Miller v. California

Student: The final prong of Miller asks whether the work, taken as a whole, lacks serious literary, artistic, or scientific value.

Student: So is that why so many pornos have a plumber or a cable guy come in? So they can argue that there is an educational value? They teach valuable trade skills and THEN have sex!
