From take-off to landing, these linked stories move at the speed of sound through post 9-11 angst, yoga, bureaucratic helplessness, marriage, collective public insecurity and family. A group of minor bureaucrats operating under the unfunded directive of "Homeland Security" try to start a commercial pornography site in order to generate revenue for their city. Their research into the porn industry does in fact suggest it as a viable solution to their economic woes. Meanwhile their wives threaten to follow a guru to India in search of their own inner security. Pornographies humorously lays bare serious and real concerns about 21st Century America.
