Does appearing in (or even just watching) porn necessarily make one unfit to be a parent? We don't think so - most porn stars manage to keep their onscreen personas quite distinct from their private lives - but a Texas judge couldn't resist moralizing yesterday when awarding child custody to a former BDSM model who appeared under the aliases Barbi Korvette and "Slavegirl": "The judge said he had to award custody to 'someone who is an admitted porn entertainer (or) someone who was involved in porn, viewed it and can't remember the last time he's hired a prostitute.'" (And no, we don't quite understand what's so bad about that last part either.)
