True enough. In some of the old Dragnet TV episodes (as well as OTR episodes) Sgt. Friday and his partner go after pornographers. One time a man sent a poem with some erotic content through the mail and got pinched for it (a true story). The poem in question was from The Song of Songs which is Solomon's. In the old days when people made 'stag movies' the actors often wore masks on their faces to hide their identity.
