So yes your porn should be free form government regulations as good old Ben would like to do.

Ben is also obsessed with what people do in their bed room. For him it okay for the government to mess around in your bedroom as long as they not touching your guns in your house.
I don't think the statement you quoted by Justice Stewart can't be used as a reference for saying porn cannot be regulated; you took it a little out of context. And in fact, he did rule with the majority that "hard-core" porn is not protected.

But I digress... Way off topic...
