is filming adult porn illegal in the state of Florida

is filming adult porn illegal in the state of Florida
California is the only state in which it is settled law that the production of adult content is protected under free speech grounds.

Again, this is not to say that is necessarily "illegal" to produce adult content in other states - but you run the risk of violating those states' obscenity or other laws, county or state ordinances, etc.

Florida does have some companies located there, but they don't all get away with doing this. Simply Google "Max Hardcore" and "Ray Guhn" to see how certain jurisdictions within Florida prosecute certain types of adult content.

In short, it is very risky to product adult content in the state of Florida in its current political climate.

If you decide to proceed, you may also need to get a filming permit. Check with your city or county planning commission.

Also, Florida Department of Commerce to determine what special licensing requirements for your specific business activities. For instance, you must verify that no minors are involved with your film projects.
