However, the auspiciousness of the occasion was dampened slightly by the fact the content in question was a pirated copy of a smut film from the "Intimate Lesbians" series.

out of curiosity, have you committed a criminal offense with your little flicking? I mean, by analogy: terrorist websites were banned, and it's illegal (am I wrong here?) to actually even open such a site, if a knowledge of its address came to you in your sleep.
