"The pornography-related scandals may burst out for various reasons. For instance, because – even if they may accept to give a place, somewhere on the remotest outskirts, to professional pornography, clearly specialized and delimited – many would be bothered by the idea that the very graphic representations of all the imaginable sexual fantasies would penetrate in the luminous, honorable center of the public sphere. However conservative or inertial may Romania be, she wants to be integrated in a European space where the rapport between the center and the fringe, between respectable and shameful, between acceptable and unacceptable is being constantly negotiated."
