Non-Shocker: Porn Being Filmed in Semi-Public All Over Miami-Dade

Captain Stabbin himself, apparently.
This morning, readers of The Miami Herald awoke to learn what any guy with an internet connection has known for years: sometimes people make porno movies in semi-public spots in South Florida. Though, this specific porn was shot on Monument Island near the Flagler Memorial, which was recently restored with $1 million in taxpayer money. While Herald scribe David Smiley is able to muck up some refrained outrage, the overall response he gets is "yeah, whatever, just don't film your porn near a memorial next time." Will officials ever crack down on the city's internet porn industry or is it something we'd all just rather not talk about? Does anyone really care? Frankly, we don't. 

It's no secret that Miami is a hotbed for internet porn companies, and that sometimes that shooting spills over to semi-public areas. BangBus.com practically pioneered the industry of cheaply shot internet porn and featured, well, banging taking plus in the back of a big van while it cruised through Miami streets.

Today, companies like Bang Bros, Nerd Pass, and Reality Kings shoot most of their films in Miami. At question in today's Herald story is a scene entitled "Island Adventure" filmed for CaptainStabbin.com, a site that specializes in the peculiar nice of anal sex filmed on boats and is owned by Reality Kings. In the film the filmmakers dock their boat on Memorial Island, an unoccupied island which features a memorial to Henry Flagler. A red-headed model does some anal sexin' with a male model while another blonde woman occasionally lends a helping hand. Several other episodes on CaptainStabbin.com appear to be filmed off the waters of South Florida, but few actually take place on islands.

According to the Herald, few of these porn shoots obtain the proper permits, but Graham Winick, Miami Beach's film and event production manager, appears to be aware of the issue and doesn't seem too worried.

Reality Kings' lawyer says that his company tries to follow the laws, and that public nudity laws only apply if someone is there to actually see the nudity. That wasn't the case for "Island Adventures," he claims.

The porn websites often shoot establishing shots out in public, and occasionally a bit of nudity occurs. Sites like SeeMeInPublic.com, owned by Nerd Pass, and the gay website OutInPublic.com do, however, feature sex in public locales. Hell, OutInPublic.com has fucking on South Beach roof tops, constructions sites, and places that look like public parks.

We find it hard to believe that no one in city or county government isn't aware of the issue, considering these are all hugely popular websites. And we find it hard to believe that some of this filming isn't breaking some law. We just wonder if some ink in the Herald is going to spur them to crack down.

But does anyone really want local governments to use their efforts and funds to make sure that consenting adults don't get filmed doing the dirty in public?

They won't crack down as long as they get their tax revenue.

It isn't about stopping them from doing it. The current laws, if enforced, should cover the public nudity/sex part of it. What bugs me is that they are not paying the fee to obtain the proper permit. Film, tourism, etc, is how we make money for our fair city, and we are getting ripped off. This is not the time to let people have a free pass on paying their dues, and I suspect that the lack permit applications, and the money that would go to pay for them, is putting a few extra Franklin's into someone's pocket.

 Give me a friggin' break Vikki.  If any public program is dependent upon permit fees from porn flicks, it is seriously falling between the cracks of all major charitable organizations. Relax... jeez.

No body is shutting down Haulover Beach's nude section and Henry Flagler would probably like to see his Island go nude as well.....

With porn movies, when you're watching them, it's basically they're an hour and a half long. And who watches an entire funking porn movie?

dude... do a little proof reading. Apparently, you not only don't give a shit about porn... you don't give a shit about writing either. It's "place" not "plus" and "niche" not "nice."

As a Miami Resident and adult website owner, I don't see what the problem is. As the attorney stated, "public nudity laws only apply if someone was there to actually see the nudity."
