LOS ANGELES—We know well enough how hard it is to get adult content past the discriminating border agents tasked with keeping Canada safe from smut. More than once, AVN magazines destined for a trade show have not made it through despite the relatively tame content. But we didn’t realize to what extent the agents go to evaluate the stuff until The Smoking Gun reported on the "Teen Mom" Farrah Abraham porn DVD and its journey north.
“Canadian border security agents recently had to screen a DVD copy of the porn film starring MTV ‘Teen Mom’ Farrah Abraham to determine whether the X-rated production was suitable for importation into the country,” wrote TSG. “The video, featuring the 21-year-old Abraham and porn star James Deen, was deemed ‘admissible,’ by border agents, who are charged with interdicting ‘material that is considered to be obscenity, treason, sedition or hate propaganda.’”
But the site also provides a copy of the Determinations memorandum produced by the border agents listing a few of the 62 movies they reportedly screened between April and June of this year. According to TSG, 8 DVDs out of that total were not allowed into the country.
In addition to Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom, which was produced in 2013 by Vivid Entertainment, the list also includes a number of older movies by adult studios, including a 2007 release by Red Light District, Don’t Let Daddy Know 3, and a 2004 Diabolic Video release called Lewd Contact #21. There are also a few titles circa 2006-8, but most of the others are of a more recent vintage, including Girl Candy Films’ Lesbian Masseuse #3 and Hustler Video’s Every Girl Loves a Facial.
Only one movie from the list published by TSG was rejected for admission into Canada, a 2003 release by NuTech Digital titled Living Sex Toy Delivery Vol. 3: The Captured Women.
TSG reports, “Canadian officials also seized a copy of Brazilian Amateur Kaviar, which is the fourth in a fetish series whose title certainly does not refer to the luxury delicacy. Instead, the DVD reflects the aesthetic of the notorious 2 Girls, 1 Cup, another product of Brazil’s film industry.”
