Transcript UN'TIUS 40~ VOLUME 1, NO. 6 DECEMBER 1970 HOUSTON, TEXAS SEX WITH DOGS to be OK - SEX BETWEEN GAYS - NO! Houston D.A. explains proposed penal code. Harris County Cistrict Attorney Carol Vance testifying before the Criminal Law Study committee of the legi s­lature November 6th said proposed code would erase most sex crimes. The Texas penal code revision should include removal of most sexual offenses from the realm of criminal law, Vance said. Some eliminations by the proposed code would be best­iality in private, fornication, adultery except in its aggravated form, which is bigamy, seduction on promise of marriage, and consenting hetrosexual deviate conduct in private. Homosexual activity between human beings and rape would be retained as crimes. Lowering the age of consent for females from 18 to 16 is also proposed by the State Bar of Texas. The idea that it wi II be legal in Texa s to have sexual relations with a pet poodle but illegal to have sexual relations w ith consenting human beings of the same gender i s patently ridiculous ! Mr. Yance is vice-chairman of the legi s l a1ive committee .as well as a member of the revision comm i tte e. The proposal to retain the inhuman and archaic legal probi bit1on against homosexual behav ior between consent ing adults is 1nconcei v abely in sens i t ive to the legiti mate human rights of a large minor ity of voting c itizens of al I races, creeds and colors . Ju st as in The Soviet Unionl, our sexual behavior is to be determined by the state. (God Help Us! ) \".'e would hope that the di!>trict attorney and others directly involved in forming the ne,~ Texas Penal Code will rise above mere political expedency designed to satisfy the brutish intrests of the supposed average voter. i. We would hope these men would r i se to the ran k of genuine statesmen, honestly concerned with the human r ights of all minorities who li ve and work and serve in this state. Ponogrflphy suspects flrrested Two men have been arrested here as a result of having been named in a sealed indi ctment issued by a federal grand jury here .

The raids ceased in the face of a temporary injunct ion enjoin ing police from ra ids on the movie houses pending a high er court rul ing on the consti tutionality of the Texas obscen it y s t atu te.

From theft to child molestation to rape to murder to high treason human history reeks with the outrages perpetrated daily by this majority of mankind! No amount of fantasising or rational­ising can eradicate this fact. Heterosexuals, taken in this perspective, are incridibly dangerous to society and human morality: they should be removed from society for the safety of al I mankind. Preposterous? No more so than equally inaccurate obser­vations similarly made in reference to the homosexual minority in society. No more so than the stereotyped observations of some about other minority groups today. But today praise the merciful God who made us all, these minorities no longer submit cravenly to such degredations vested upon them by the neurotics and the bigots running the land. Plenty of Parking Available Every Second Drink Free As with other minorities, the bigotry and prejudice of people reflects their own anxieties concerning their own view of themse Ives. In the instance of irational antipathy towards homosexuality, it demonstrates a deep- seated fear of repressed personal homosexual behaviour patterns. When a so0 called heterosexual attacks a so-called homo­sexual, he is attacking that recognised homosexual part of himself which he fears and abhors. He was taught to abhor niggers, yids, spies, crackers, honkies, wops, pigs, etc., etc., etc. I Within the context of our culture, because of the anxiety inculeated towards anything sexual, the so-called hetero0 sexual bias mi I itates against the homosexual expression of human sexuality. And we are usually forced to justify this anxiety pattern by religious injunctions. To do so debases Western religions concepts to the level of superstition . Without launching into biblical exegesis, we would suggest the central doctrine quoted most frequently by the sexually anxiety -ridden to denounce all homosexual behaviour is specious. Most who quote scripture do condone bestial treatment of fellow human beings who fulfil their sexual needs in a manner different from common heterosexual forms are biblical i II iterates. The Old Testament, the motherlode of justification for in~ human treatment of human beings who happen· to be gay, - ·-- - --------------- - ---· ---- - - - ------ ---- - --- - ---·- - ---- ----- DECEMBER 1970 denounces the temple practises of ·non-Jewish People- · not essentially their sexuality. David and Jonathan were not blasted by a vengeful God for their homosexual relationship. On the other hand Onan was punished in the Old Testament not for auto-eroticism, but for deliberately disobeying a direct command of Yahweh to marry his brother's widow and perpetuate his family line. Fortunately, in this country Church and State ore sup .. posedly separate - at least in theory. But we pervert this doctrine by such political tricks as imposing:.- upon the people specific religious prohibitions\ again.st liquors, marriage between the races and personal sexual expres­sions. Always claiming biblical morality as justification. To dictate the personal life of another human being is outrageous when public ;rder is not threatened. To impose upon one's neighbors a code of behaviour person• ally satisfactory is to deny the principle of individual liberty. To victimise a person on accour:it of his differ­ing preferences in any area not endangering the common• wealth is monsterous. To indulge in repressiori of those whose life styles deviate from one 's own is to invite similar repression - whether it is obusing citizens on flimsy accusations of witchcraft, heresy or sexual preferences. Such distinctive behaviour is always, in every instance, based on fear of the different. And fear is the instrument of man's most heinous crimes against his own kind. It reduces us to the level of beasts, and denies our humanity . ~~ ~~ ~ . ~~~~ 1504 Westheimer S28-9SS2 Open Dally 1 Oam til dosing 'KEG PARTY SUNDAYS7 9 5-7 9 ~ ($1.00) ~ PAGE 5 AT 5563 JACKBORO HWY • • • • THE EL TOGA CLUB OPEN WEDNESDAYS - SUNDAYS 8:00 P.M. - 2:00 A.M.

It has been remarked that man has two basic urges: one of sex, the other of aggression, neither of which ore uncontrollable. Yet where communication and litera­ture ore concerned, the so-called "moral leaders" (I'm beginning to question the merit of such a group here in Houston) seem to consistantly attack an over-kill the former, while completely disregarding the latter. I consider it much more of an obscenity to see a man being pumped full of bullets or a woman being mercilessly strangled to death, than to see two people mak ing love - - - a harmless matter.

Why doesn't it censor T.V. and fi Im in their relentless portrayal of crimes, murder, and a sick emphasis on violence? That is obscene! That's what corrupts! Not Nature-given sex. But if an exposure to the horrors of violence should serve toward preserving our awareness of the realities of this world, then let's be equally realistic about the practices of sex in all its facets and not just promulgate the one while hushing the other. Furthermore, we should seriously consider the general agreement that obscenity prosecutions are among the most difficult, time-con­suming, and expensive of legal actions. Enough time and money wasted! Let' s concentrate our energies on more pressing, more harmful issues. Porno­graphy is totally harmless as long as there is no suggest­ion of an assault by publication in a manner so obtrusive as to make it impossible for an unwilling individual to avoid exposure to it. A. K. DeV. THE UP ADD DOWD DRU1i5 AMPHETAMINES WHAT ARE AMPHETAMINES? PAGE 7 Amphetamines, first produced in the 1920's for medical use, are stimulants to the central nervous system and ore best known for their obi lity to combat fatigue and sleepiness. They are also sometimes used to curb appetite in medically supervised weight reduction -Pro­grams. The most commonly used stimulants are ampheta­mine (Benzedrine), dextroamphetamine (Cexedrine), and methomphetamine (Methedrine). Slang terms for these drugs by some people who misuse them include "pep pills," "bennies," and "speed." When you enter expect to exit looking splendid! If we sold the ordinary, we'd have built an ordinary store. The MANHOLE is anything but ordinary. Our clothes, too!

V.'hen properly prescribed by a physician, moderate doses can check fatigue, and produce feelings of alertness, self­confidence, and well-being. In some people, this is fol lowed by a letdown feeling, or depression hangover. Heavier doses cause jitterness, irratability, unclear speech, and tension. People on very large doses of am­phetamines appear Viithdrawn, with their emotions dulled, and they seem unable to organize their thinking. WHAT ARE THE PHYSICAL EFFECTS? Stimulant drugs increase the heart rate, raise the blood pressure, cause palpitations (throbbing heart and rapid breathing), dilate the pupils, and cause dry mouth, sweat­i ·ng, headache, diarrhea, and paleness. They also depress the appetite. HOW DO THESE STIMULANTS WORK? Scient ists have found that in the body these drugs stimulate the release of nerepinephrine, a substance stored in nerve endings, and concentrate it in the higher centers of the brain. This speeds up the action of the heart and the metabolism, which is the body's process for converting food into the chemicals it needs . ARE STIMULANTS MISUSED? About 20 percent of all medical prescriptions for mood­affecting drugs are stimulants. The amount produced by the drug industry each year is enough to provide each American with 25 doses of these drugs. The Food and Drug Administration reports that about half this supply enters illegal channels, for nonprescribed use. Stimu­lants are also produced in black-market laboratories and are easily obtained from illegal sources. Stimulants are misused or abused by people of different ages and walks of life - from the middle-aged business­man or housewife to students, athletes, and truck drivers. Recent government surveys show that young people are becoming the greatest abusers of these drugs. Drivers take them to stay awake on long trips, students take , them while cramming for exams, and athletes take them DECEMBER 1970 although, sporting associations have banned their use. Some try them for a temporary "kick," Some abusers "get" on both stimulant and sedative drugs, to get a chemical "up" and a chemical "down." This practice is, of course, unsound, and is not recommended. The stimulant drugs are generally swallowed as pills, but can be taken in liquid form by injection into a vein at regular time intervals. This is a dangerous practice known among abusers as " speeding." ARE THESE STIMULANTS ADDICTING? Benzedrine, Dexedrine and other stimulant drugs do not produce physical dependence as do the narcotics . The body does not become physically dependent on their continued use. It does, however, develop a tolerance to these drugs, with larger and larger doses required to feel the effects. There is another kind of dependence medical authorities note in connection with the abuse of stimulants. They call it psychological" dependence, or a practice that can become a habit for mental or emotional reasons, with the person " getting used to" and turning to the drug for its effects. HOW DANGEROUS ARE STIMULANT DRUGS? The drugs can drive a person to do things beyond his physical endurance that leave him exhausted.

Unac customed high doses may cause death. WHAT ARE THE LEGAL CONTROLS? Stimulants are regulated by the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, Deportment of Justice. Lows provide for a strict accounting of supplies of drugs by the manufacturer, distributor, and seller, and re strict the user to five refills of the prescription, at the discretion of his physician. This means that these drugs con be had legally only through a doctor . Illicit manufacturing and dispensing of barbiturates con bring fines up to th GALLEON "STILL THE TIGHTEST SHIP AFLOAT!" 2720 RICHMOND AVENUE - HOUSTON PAG E 9 $10,000 and prison sentences up to 5 years .

WHY THE SMITHSONIAN MIXED THE NUDE DANCE A nude dai1cc solo at a gon~rnmcnl museum didn·t come off - partially because the performer planned to wear ai1 American Flag around his neck.

The fact that a movie exploits "shameful or morbid sexual interests" should qualify it for suppression, Justice Cepartment lawyers said in seeking a ban on the Swedish fi Im "Language of Love." The appeal described as "unrealistic" the 1966 high court standard that only material "utterly without re­deeming social value" can be censored.

"Talk about the standards of the community is not very meaningful when the community is prevented from enforc­ing any substantial standards by this steady progression to slimmer and slimmer elements of value with more and more explicit sexual depiction." Customs officials seized "Language of Love" and a federal jury in New York judged the film to be obscene . This ruling was upset last September by the U. S. Circuit court in New York, which allowed distribution of the fi Im. The government appeal, seeking to restore the ban, said "Language of Love" contains "explicit scenes of sexual intercourse, and other sexua I action and con tacts ." ------· PAGE 12 BONNY FIGHTER or FALSE KNIGHT To be young today is not only to enjoy many advantages and comforts unknown to former generations but to suffer many trials and to cope with many problems which did not plague our f refathers. Young people are genuinely puzzled by the frictions and deficiencies in our society. Impatience comes naturally to the young. They resent the bureaucratic time lapse between pressing the button and getting an answer to their questions or action on their requests for change. Young people have a consuming passion to make wheels turn, to go somewhere. Discontent with things as they ore is not wrong in itself. It is the impetus which has created most of the greatness in "men and women" in all of history. But discontent which looks only at burdens to demonstrate against and not at blessings to use is I -..,.,...__.,.., - · ~-e.r:;,..·_:,,.t"_-f ei:;r--..::-•:-:'1'e~,,...~'--te1:;r ._?I~~-! .... .,_ - - pour hostesses . . . ~ m Rzcct & Rita/ J tl'i' /<) i'" , l ... r -4 }"':, L m r· r ~ ) " ~BOIRIII 60~S~ I GLIB ~ J ~ 1 POOL - DANCING MIXED DRINKS f {memberships available) iJ O p e n T u e s d a y t h r o u g h S u n d a y 5 p m - 2 a m -~ 1 Closed Mon day s, -· J2305 S.

SHEPHERD HOUSTON, TEXAS 528-1000 unhealthy. Both "burdens and blessings" are part of normal life. The great scientists, historians and phi­losophers agree that life on this earth has been and is one continuous, never-ceasing process of readjustment. Young people know that they are maturing in body and mind at an earlier age than did preceding generations, and they want to have that fact acknowledged. Their demand to be heard reaches into every nation, and within the nations into universities and schools and into the universities and schools and into the policies of govern~ ment. It is the legitimate arm of young people to make the future so attractive that older people will wish they were going " to be there." Most young people handle the requirements of life and its pressures adequately. Their urge is to seize the passing hour and fill it with experiments. In lauding our age as one in which we have machines that think, let us be mindful of the fact that human beings must think harder to keep ahead. The highest purpose of society is not to prepare a nation fit for computers, and this is one of the central points in the protest of youth. They see the world around them becoming captivated by electronic mechanisms, and they fear that they, too, may become slaves of the machine. They seek a profounder meaning to life and a more satisfying culture . The society in which they wish to live would be eminently DECEMBER 1970 PAGE 13 CLUB BOI ...

They want poets and philosophers as well as engineers. For almost every young person, adolescence means one thing above all else: he must prove that he is no longer a child. He is fighting to establish himself as a person. Progress in maturity may be measured by our acceptance of increased self-responsibility and an increased sofa­city in decision-making. This transaction is not a time of calm enjoyment, but of growth and adaptation. Maturity is not something you can " gate-crash." You have to enter it legitimately, sustained by an appreciation of inner and outer reality . The searcher for maturity should not allow himself to be led into blind alleys. Discerning thought will protect him against the woolly speculation in which a youth imagines himself a hero who wi II put salt on the tail of the " millennium." However, he can be like the Centurion· a man who could both take orders and give them . This is a mark of character. Character takes in the whole man. A man may be a bonny fighter, but a false knight. The test is: to like and dislike what one ought. In summation, Plato versed " Know thyself . .. Nothing in Excess." Alan Dumas'et NUDIST CLUB'S FLOAT WINNER El Cajon, Cal. - The Sun Island Nudist Club' s float won the sweepstakes award in the annual Mother Goose parade here. The float depicting the rhyme, " There was an old woman who lived in a shoe, " was viewed by more than 400,000 persons who turned out for the parade Sunday. The girls on the club's float wore clothing . ''A GAY MOTHER GOOSE TALE'' An old woman lived in a shoe. She had so many children she didn 't know what to do. And her children loved her. Let's call her Mother Goose. This old mother deserved to get far more love than he got. He was benevolent, real, sure of self, established, and took care of his children. His shoe was known as the Ah Group. Ah is prounced as when you play doctor and tell patient "stick out your tongue and say ahh, and I'll put something in there that just might not make you gag." Enough about throat massaging and how happy things were in the Ah Group. then good Mother upped and died leaving all his flock homeless and disorganized . Can't you just feel how distraught the babies were, as some of them were young, truly, back then. Please pause for a silent prayer, (or do anything else that makes you feel well) to honor Houston 's first and only gay club. After his death there was no communistic struggle of gay power, nor Roman type triumvirate. There was a vaccuum with just a feeble disorganized provincial orgy occasionally. New out of the flock came a new would be Mother Hubbard in disguise. He was really the wicked witch from both the East and West. Doesn't it grab you that he was from both? How yummy and witchy-bitchy. The East was East Houston, and the West was a 3rd rate "social" fraternity at the State U. in out Austin. Small wonder New Mother has a double dip of skcial chips on his sholders to try to overcome. Also New Mother has 1: ts of trouble with his flock. Strays and breeds of question wander in. Other loved ones leave the flock when Mother 's disclipline gets too hars h, and others get SH OED out when they talk back to Mother.

Others about to stray from the shoe see that the trans­parent halo is not real, is also askew, and that New Mother has been pushing them around like pawns to help Mother in his own busy personal vendettas. Most of the flock takes the shoving around like good boys should and I knew he would - - bit. Every month gets more confusing as to who is in the flock for sure. Alas, only a Mother can know her own children for sure. What's up in your homoscope for next month? Maybe you will bd Mother's favorite, maybe NOT. , r maybe you wouldn't want a bitchy old hag like that messing around in your shoe at all. How would you feel if Mother tells you that you cannot ask your favorite buddy butch to your up­coming birthday party as we 11 as Hotlips Harry, Friendly Frank, and that new stud up Mason Street just because MAW doesn't like them, ask a few stray and kept hust­lers. My sleepy memory is trying to remember Mother's maiden name. It has never been seen in any real social columns, or I, ho hum, should remember better. What ever happened to her last semi-kept off and on husband who DID work (good man?) Sometimes he took a good look on how unmotherly and how unwifely MAW had become. He is not alone if he has remarked that Mother's sick ways are, because she is going through a change of life! Oh yes, New Mother calls her flock the A gf oup, pro­nounced as in you don't say. Yes, and also true is that Mother also says an A g fmp does not really exist (quite true) except in the eyes of THE B group. (equally imagi­nary.) Yes, but everything MOTHER says is not true. Oh how we children used to twitter when MAW fibbed so much, he got hung up (like he wished he was) in his own fibs. And there was the time Maw got dowrright bitchy trying to control invitations and dates to an awards box bare cupboard supper. Wonder why his cup­bard was so bare that his good dog hardly had a bone? But the guy next to me had one, so I gnawed on his. His name is Mono. Groovy that one, and he can cook too when he wants to. Oh it is getting so late, and I hear some old aunties in a bitch fight outside, and I'm going to look for an OLD SHOE to ghrow out my window so I can get some sleep instead of making love to you dahlings like you, and you and YOU ... Hate bitch fights. Best of dreams, Sleepy Maxie PAGE 16 ''Inaxies '' A most fortunate incendiary incident on Whitney Street prompted a young society real estate agent to evict a non royal but very gracious petilous living dutchess lawyer, offering his grace a fond farewell drink. Nothing better ever happened to the dear dutchess. He really turned the agent's "rearrangement" into true beneveloence (a real fairy tale). He got a more handsome new town house, and even more handsome new room mate. The roomie came equipped with a handsome huge coffee table and something else huge that might be nice to have afound the new house as well. Luv practical working house pets and "High Episcopalians" yet, too. And new house pet doesn't even know how incredibly handsome he is, which is so refreshing these days, if not downright reassuring. And so they are living happily ever after with a stunning candelabra added to the coffee table by another handsome regular guest from Galena Park who has recently returned to the Houston area to live, see page 13 last issue. A perfectly charming post deb named Rose had his coming , out party beer bust just after this paper's last issue had gone to press. Twas such a joyous timing anyway, for it was held on All Saints day following Hallowed Eve at a very popular uptown night spot. 150 or more enthusi­astic guests cheered radiant Rose's michrophone an­nouncement that all would be welcome back at the night spot any time. "Just ask for Rose." The elaborate P.A. System so deftly handled the personal touch, that it took the place of those beastly receiving lines. And Rose, at his post deb age, would not want that. But once a deb, always a deb, and luvs, aren't we all glad that Rose finally came out? The decorations were in­visible due to a lack of light, surely, so many broom­sticks and witches and goblins left ov cl from the Hallowed Eve were gobbled up in the darkness along with dancing and funsies to a much in evidence beat of that powerful P.A. system. There were 2 joyous kegs of beer consumed to almost the last guest, so that not a drop of that joyous juice was wasted, and the party blended into the night spot's evening opening to more commercial revelers. The only sour note of Rose's fun evening came when one of the principal revelers left conspicuously early because of a shortage of chickens present. Another smart pair had a smart flair of an evening at an up-town apartment. Like so many of these apartment dwelers, it was a warm night outside and warmer inside .. Twas no wonder that a contagious outbreak of groping commenced, but the moon was full and with those 100 hot bodies . . . Thrilling! don't you know luvs? One of the hosts, Edythe, was also hot.

The decor of The Manhole is alive and ch~erful through the use of vivid colors , varied texture and unusual hole~ like appearance achieved by eleven large arches. For those so-inclined, a grand entrance, or exit, is enhanced by an antique glass and brick foyer that is ramped to lead customers onto a stage-I ike front portion of the store that overlooks the plush carpeted main part of the store. A new store front sets The Manhole apart from other stores in the center. In all this splendor, partners Van, Jack and Homer have assembled the most carefully selected fashions with one purpose in mind .. . . to please the man who wants to dress as an individual, to set himself apart from the stereotype, and to assure them they can expect to find only the very latest styles from al I the most important male fashion centers. You'll always get a warm recept ion at The Manhole and you ' ll enjoy the int imate, friendly and relaxed atmosphere found there .

AH the dears have for so many years been gos• ·siping about and dishing just everyone that it is fright­fully difficult to fix the blame. It seems they, too, were over our column last month. Tush, luvs, it's just all those chickens ( ! ) coming home to roost en masse. We understand they're not even accepting drink from each other without having it tasted first! So tragic, really, when such dear, devoted friends can't TRUST each other these days .. . . WHEN WE 'Y{ENT TO the opening of The Galleria recent• ly it was simply thrilling, really. It was just I i /..e a Gay Liberation Convention, luv! We have never seen so MANY Beautiful People cavorting under one roof at one time. Without doubt it is one of the most fascinating people-watching sites locally. It was so amusing watch ­ing some of our better-known social figures walking DECEMBER 1970 into walls while cruising some Beautiful Beast. Hard on the noses, though, luv. THE RED ROOM, one of our favourite dance halls, has introduced a topless go-go dancer for our delecation . It's all just too woncf rful, luv, and the sight of that marvellous young thing wriggling and writhing is such fun. Almost as much fun is the sight of the patrons whose rea'ctions seem to run from awkward surprise to downright panting naughty thoughts To paraphrase Hitler (you DO remember Hitler, don t you luv? ) 'Topless today, bottomless tomorrow' might be the coming thing now. After all, luv, California hos already done it! Anyway, just everyone is terribly thrilled by it a!/ for now and we await wit/1 glee the next spectacular 1nno vation at the RR THE PALACE CLUB has recently lost tempo:-arily their wonderful singer in The Forum.

It s such fun feeling the windows throb and sway and we con estimate just when the whole thing crashes in on us . Fo· flunotely there is the marvel lous dulling sensation produced by the Palace "s dandy drinks, luv. so just endure it and dance a lot . There 's o dear.

PAGE 23 -------------- -----•·- ---- -- PAGE 24 POLICE HARRASS BAR The Exile, one of Houstons most popular downtown bars reports three visits by the police in six weeks for "routine checks." "Routine check" is generally believed to be varification of licenses on establishment and equipment, seeing that employees health cards are in order, beer boxes properly packed and void of hard liquor, etc . The "security force" that last visited the Exile consist­ed of six uniformed officers. These officers asked a couple of patrons their age, checked I icenses and beer boxes along with health cards. Everything being in order the management was told to turn off the music. The leader of the "security Force" asked "all of you in here that are gay raise your hands." The gay bars and clubs in this city require much less time or police action than do the so called "straight" places. Why, when the gay club and bar owners cooperate with, respect and support our law enforcement agencies is action such as this necessary. If this type action is not harrassment, we would appreciate hearing from one of the directors of the police department as to why it was necessary . 2,500 ONLY $20.70 5,000 ONLY $39.95 524-5612 DECEMBER 1970 - - --------------- ---------·- •· -·• There's 11othi11g quite as good as a good cold Beer 011 New Years Eve.

We always feel left out because you talk so much about male homosexuals and so little about us female homo­sexuals. There are quite a few of us in your area so take us into consideration. It will make us feel better and wi II probably help you also . A forgotten Lesbian - Dear Forgotten - I am aware of the number in the area but know little of your activities. Perhaps something from you about what is going on with the girls in the Port Arthur - Beaumont area from you will stimulate someone here in Houston to give us a bit of news. There are always things happening here in Houston, come over and talk to the girls at the 60's and see what they are - they don't tell me.

S. Postal Service is gearing up to guarantee a smut-free mail box to anyone who wants it. Beginning next February, any citizen mDy request that tl;e postal system take him ' off the mailrng list of any firm that sends out sexually oriented advertising. P.o-~tmaster General Wint,m M. Blont ~aid the new law, pgrt of the postal reorganization legislation passed last summer, is "the most novel means in use in the world for contro II ing the flow of sexually oriented mater ia Is ~ through the ma i I." The Postal Se.rvice will maintain a computerized list of persons who do not wish to receive erotic advertising. The mailer must check his mailing list against that of the post office to assure that he will not be prosecuted under the law.

Ph: 984-9282 § 0 n the way to "Cb: ay" N ew O rlean s § Rather than leaving the recipient the decision of whether the advertisement is erotic or offensive, the new law sets specific standards. The definition includes "any advertisement that depicts, 1 in actual or simulated form, or explicity descr ibes, in a predominantly sexual context, human gen ital ia, any act of natural or unnatural sexual intercourse, any act of sad ism or masochism, or any other erotic subject directly related to the foregoing. " In addition, the new law requires that the envelope containing such advertising disclose that it contains a "sexually oriented ad " When a postal patron signs the post office form request­ing that he and persons in his household under age 19 not receive smutty advertisements, his name goes on the computerized list. It is the mailers' responsibility to see that he does not send such advertisements to the postal patron. Mailers who ignore the ban are subject to criminal penalties. Under the new law, the mailer must determine whether or not his advertising is sexually oriented. If he guesses wrong he has no way to appeal other than defending himself in court.
