Girls Gone Wild

From Academic Kids

Girls Gone Wild, created by Joe Francis, is a series of videos by American company Mantra Entertainment, which depict young women removing their clothing. The videos are primarily intended for a young adult market and have themes such as Live from Spring Break or Sexy Sorority Sweethearts and involve a camera crew patrolling an area in search of women who agree to expose their breasts, usually in exchange for a T-shirt. Sometimes the crew will follow a group of girls back to a hotel or other location and convince them to have sex with each other, again in exchange for a T-shirt. The videos are sold via mail order and are frequently advertised on late-night television (with a brief "warning" message before the commercial begins).

Recently, Mantra announced a new addition to their products—a Guys Gone Wild video. The same framework applies, only this time attractive guys are the ones being wild for the camera. After many requests for something such as this, as well as an obvious sense of fairness, a plan was formed. The company just recently released the first series of videos. Some reviewers believe Guys Gone Wild will not hold as much of an appeal for the demographic of young women, and instead be of interest to gay men.

On March 9, 2004 a judge in Panama City, Florida, a city renowned as a spring break destination, ordered that a videotape in police custody should be released to the defense. The videotape contained film of minors exposing their breasts and the judge effectively ruled that film of those under 18 willingly exposing their breasts, without physical contact, was not child pornography under Florida law. Had it been child pornography the videotape would have been contraband and not eligible for return. Charges in the case include prostitution, procuring a minor for prostitution, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, selling obscene material, promoting the sexual performance of a minor and using a child in a sexual performance. The charges followed complaints by some parents and are claimed to be harassment as part of a campaign to change the image of the city.
