Kosher symbol on porn DVD hits nerve

‘A Teaneck rabbi has persuaded a Los Angeles-based pornographer to remove a trademark kosher symbol from the cover of a sexually explicit DVD about Israeli women.

The cover, which shows a woman striking a seductive pose, boasts that the explicit video was filmed in Israel. It also had a Hebrew letter with a “K” inside it — the same stamp of approval that the rabbi’s company slaps on thousands of kosher food products. [..]

“I just assumed that letters of the alphabet … weren’t trademarked symbols,” Cohen said Thursday. “I was wrong.”

Cohen said he initially used the symbol to make a statement that would be “tongue in cheek” and also a guarantee to viewers that the movie was the first adult feature filmed entirely in Israel with an Israeli cast.’
