There never was any "porn" in the store (the famous "I know it when I see it serves as my on yardstick to what "porn" is) but there was some mild titillation and racy apps, perhaps.
You point doesn't explain why some high profile apps of similar nature are still available (Maxim, Playboy, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit) that offer the same degree of titillation. The difference is that these apps are owned by mega-corporations that Apple wouldn't dare bother (TIME Inc., Playboy Enterprises).
Until Apple applies their "censorship" or whatever passes for acceptance evenly to all apps
, then this is nothing more than favoritism and keeping media corporations happy at the expense of smaller developers.

Playboy and Maxim and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition are not considered, by the religious types in my little city, "Disney-squeaky-clean." Apple needs to apply the rules evenly, or stop pretending they're anything but a profit-hungry, despotic corporation no better than MS etc. (Disclosure: I am an Apple computer owner since my first Apple IIe. So I am in the fanboy camp, just very old.)
Actually, I'll dash off an email right now to Steve J objecting to that very content. Grab those while you can boys, cause I want 'em gone!
