Advertisers and marketers do not just create ads to promote their products; they also set a standard of what is attractive to the society.

Jacoby writes this article in regards to a Porno called “Deep Throat” produced by Larry Flynt. To begin, Jacoby states that Larry Flynt produces garbage, but at the same time she also feels that he being convicted was unfair, due to the fact that he was revoked of his freedom of speech.
