The original question which started this thread asked what happened to a particular site which displayed and was promoted by it's owner a man who had received silicone injections.
Silicone has had a very mixed track record with some men having no problems at all with it and others having incredible disasters because of their choice to have it.
Inside United States Borders the injection of silicone for the purpose of penis enlargement is absolutely illegal and it is illegal on multiple levels. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) declared this medical procedure illegal inside United States Borders decades ago. Several State Medical Boards have independently declared this procedure illegal as well. Some of these agencies have gone a great deal farther than that.
Now, good or bad I want to point out right here that I do not agree with the legal issues which have arisen from Silicone. Some are out and out idiotic, but, we have them and they ARE present.
Most silicone injections are now being done outside of the United States. I also understand that there is a new substance being used in South America that is supposed to be a vast improvement, but, I have in a great quest of curiosity not been able to find out as much about it as I would like simply because the information is not there to find at least on the net.
The FDA while approving the usage of some silicone based substances for facial reconstruction has decided what formulae and where it can be injected and this is as of this time iron clad within U.S. Borders.
In the United States there are jurisdictions where a person can be prosecuted and held liable under what is called "Agency" for providing references to a Dr. who performs the procedure even if they received no monetary compensation. Because the prosecutors are unable to prosecute the foreign MD under United States law, they classify the information presented to the surgical candidate as making the individual in question a United States based "agent" or "representative" of the foreign MD which in turn gives that person liability. The same rules are true for those providing transportation to the patient under certain circumstances.
These procedures have been going gangbusters to a select few for decades. When the controversy started the late Gary Griffin and I spent a lunch at a Palm Springs Restaurant with a Riverside County Deputy District Attorney. That Attorney outlined what had at that time been planned to prosecute in the State of California.
Gary Griffin left this world unexpectedly in 1996. The main thing that killed the plans to really go after this was the radical budget cutbacks that most Governmental agencies have been forced to shoulder.
There was a time that I owned and moderated a number of Yahoo Groups with adult content. Because of my own inability to control them minute by minute and changing laws regarding porn I dumped all of these groups but one, and that one is so tightly regulated that there is no change of it biting me in the butt.
Many servers who once hosted adult material were strangled by the FDA and other government regulators, many freedoms in this area have been lost.
Today, not many servers will host certain subjects in fear of having their client base lost and their equipment confiscated.
