I'm surprised that people suddenly think that banks aren't greedy enough to profit from the porn industry!

Maybe the reason PayPal and so many other companies won't service adult industries is that there are laws that put them within arms reach of criminal liability?

On a related note, this reminds me of Operation Choke Point (2013-2017), where the DOJ harassed banks that did business with customers in legal, but "undesirable", industries [1].

What a legendary name for an operation.
