The pay cable network said the decision this summer to remove softcore porn films, as well as adult-themed documentary specials like Real Sex, Cathouse and Taxicab Confessions was made before AT&T's recent acquisition. “Over the past several years HBO has been winding down its late-night adult fare,” an HBO spokesperson tells the Los Angeles Times. “While we’re greatly ramping up our other original program offerings, there hasn’t been a strong demand for this kind of adult programming, perhaps because it’s easily available elsewhere.” Jeffrey Jones of University of Georgia's Peabody Center says the shift is a result of changing times. “It really is the vestige of a previous era,” said Jones, co-author of The Essential HBO Reader. “Especially the more soft-core stuff that gave HBO its mantle of ‘It’s not TV, it’s HBO.’ You weren’t finding those shows unless you subscribed to the Playboy Channel and most people did not want their wives to know that they watched that stuff.”
