After all the hubbub about a little porn in the backyard on Easter Sunday, will there be any outrage over "reality porn" in the sex shop? We won't link to Midnight Prowl (it's awfully NSFW) but Fleshbot (pretty NSFW in it's own right) points us towards it and notes that by the looks of things in the trailers and photos, this pornographic romp through some of LA's many adult video and toy shops seems to be exactly what it claims - porn starlets copulating with average joes. Lots and lots of average joes.

With scares in recent years over HIV infection, we're curious, though, how protected are these willing participants in reality porn? Are they screened before they arrive at the shop? Do they follow the same protocols as the most reputable parts of the industry?

And will litle Susie have to hear moaning and groaning from the cargo van they ride around in while she's picking flowers for mom this weekend?
