I'll take a contrary position to what I've seen so far. I would have no
problem saying no to such a project. Just because something is legal,
doesn't make it ethical. In my opinion, and beliefs, these industries cause
a lot more problems than most people realize. They devalue human worth,
cause marriage problems, increase crime and who knows what other problems
are created. Pornography is as damaging as any illicit drug and I couldn't
sleep at night if I knowingly contributed to their bottom line.

I've turned down work for another industry that was probably more socially
acceptable because of my beliefs. No I won't sell out for the bucks or the
opportunity to be exposed to the cutting edge. Whether I was exposed to the
objectionable content or not has no bearing on my decision. I won't be a
part of victimizing (mostly) women.
