Asked in Criminal Law and Internet Law for Colorado

Q: My question is for a Colorado lawyer only and pertains to title 18 and state obscenity laws. Webcam question

My girlfriends and I have been webcamming with each other in the state of California for a year now and it's become our primarymeans of income. we have recently moved to Denver Colorado and are wondering if we are breaking local obscenity laws by continuing our girl on girl sex acts for the various webcam sites we profit from. Reviewed the local laws but not quite sure if we understand fully. We WERE looking to recruit a few more girls locally and

make money from webcamming out of our apartment in downtown Denver. Live feed goes out of us performing sexual acts within normal parameters including masturbation, penetration and girlgirl sex. We are all adults, involve NO extreme or illegal acts per the websites standards and guidelines. . . Would we be breaking local laws and are these regularly prosecuted in Colorado? Thank you for your educated reply.

A: It sounds like you're within the legal norm. Without knowing the full detail of your performances, I can't give you the most direct answer. Assuming it doesn't go against any community norm for sexual acts, you're likely free to play to your heart's content.

I've represented individuals in adult entertainment for many years, and have yet to see a criminal prosecution for what you're describing. I think your biggest concern should be age verification of any local girls you bring in to your productions. Obviously, anyone under aged performing or being solicited to perform could land you in hot water.
