See the guy above? See how gross he looks?
That’s nothing compared to the grossness for which he’s best known.
He is California businessman Ira Isaacs, producer of the infamous “2 Girls 1 Cup” pornographic monstrosity. If you haven’t seen it yourself, you’ve probably watched other people watching it. It involves poop and barf. ‘Nuff said. And that’s just the tip of the filthberg.
In the world of fetish porn — typically dominated by the Japanese — Isaacs is a twisted maestro.
Since 1999, Isaacs has run an operation called L.A. Media, which distributes what he considers “shock art.” In simpler, yet also more complex terms, he presents extreme bestiality videos to people who should know better. He’s been raking in the cash hand over fist for years.
In a rare move to put a halt to his deviant ways, charges were leveled against Isaacs to the tune of “extreme obscenity.” Isaacs’ first trial began in 2008, but was thrown out after the judge, Alex Kozinski, was found to have a conflict of interest. The justice had sexually explicit material on a personal website. Another mistrial followed in 2009 due to a claim of double jeopardy.
By 2012, prosecutors had their stuff together. The trial took place in April, and was capped off by a quick, two-hour deliberation. The jurors were required to view multiple selections from Isaacs’ library of depravity.
On Wednesday, Isaacs was sentenced to 48 months behind bars, a $10,000 fine and three years of supervision upon his release. That is, his punishment was more harsh than some sentences for sexual harassment and assault.
If this makes you curious to watch his films, don’t. At least not with a full stomach.
