The Cambria List
After George W. Bush's 2000 election, there was concern within the pornography industry regarding possible future U.S. Justice Department prosecution over obscene material. In 2001, Cambria was commissioned by adult entertainment company Vivid Entertainment to create a list of sex acts that porn producers should avoid filming in order to prevent possible legal problems with the U.S. government; it became known as "The Cambria List".
