i don't know which of these he is and i think it's irrelevant. he deserves to be punished because the more "erotic art enthusiasts" there are that seek to obtain child cinema for adult viewingography, the more innocent children will be exploited. and that is just cruel.

LOL! Erotic art enthusiast... hahahahahahaha!
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 1/10/03 - 3:45:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
I just don't think he did it. Here's another artcile on the subject link

He probably didn't do it if the art being considered is antique or of a historical nature.

Michaelangelo's David is the one of the most recognizable works of Western civilazation, and since it appears nude, would likely qualify as "erotic". I don't think the differences between cinema for adult viewing and art are all that clear.

I so agree with wiseNsexy.... The limits out there are so far and wide, there are many differences between art and perverted...

Oh oh - now they are saying there were all these magazines in with the art, but his lawyers are saying he didn't know they were there? New article

Pedophile.

That is ridiculous, the difference between nudity and eroticism is very clear, art including nudes such as Michaelangelo's david is asthetic work. Eroticism is just another word for cinema for adult viewingography and if the occasional work is perpetrated by someone with artisitc talent that in no way redeems it. Murders have have also been commited by artists in what some perverts would say was a form of expression.

have you changed your opinion kikipeepers, or do you still think reubens is innocent of any wrong-doing? i'm just curious.
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 3/30/03 - 10:28:54 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't know ... I still have the feeling he didn't do it, from what I've seen and read, it sounds like art to me.
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 3/30/03 - 3:01:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
you could be right. i guess the only person who will ever truly know the answer to your question is paul reubens himself.

Eh, I dunno...I still think he's funny either way. A little creepy though...
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 6/25/04 - 12:03:14 PM EST (GMT-5)

I'm curious as to what his "kitschy, funny stuff from the 1940s, 50s or 60s” actually has in it.

It still seems really odd. Why can't the guy collect comic books like everybody else?

17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/6/05 - 7:21:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
Pee-wee

I dunno...but what's up with all the child cinema for adult viewing questions?

Well, when he owns magazines called '101 Boys,' 'Hot 'n Hung,' 'Young and Ready,' and 'Teen Nudes', then he's the consumer one.
