Kimberly Kupps Faces Obscenity Counts Over Web Content
The 5’ 10” 55-year-old performer specializes in the big-boobs niche and had been on the radar of the Polk County Sheriffs Department for three months.
The Sheriff’s Department booked her under statute 847.5 on 13 counts of “wholesale promotion of obscene material.”
Kupps, whose real name is Theresa Taylor, started in the biz in March 1990 and currently lives in Lake Wales, Fla. She frequently comes to California for porn and photo shoots, according to her website.
Kupps was jailed along with her husband, Warren Taylor, who remains locked up; Kupps was released Saturday night after posting $7,500 bail.
According to the police report, a deputy paid an initial $19.95 membership fee to her website, where he found videos of Kupps having sex with men and women.
The deputy downloaded six videos, burned them to CDs and asked Judge Reinaldo Ojeda to review them.
Ojeda, according to the police report, said the videos were obscene material under state law.
Taylor, Kupps‘ husband, said he filmed the videos downloaded by the deputy and uploaded them for sale on Clips4Sale.com.
Taylor said the couple made an average of $700 monthly for the past four months.
XBIZ reached Kupps on Sunday, but she declined to give further details or comment on the arrests.
Industry attorney Lawrence Walters said that the arrests over alleged obscenity is "more evidence of the erotophobia that is pervasive in the Polk County Sheriff’s Office."
"While we’ve not the reviewed the material charged as obscene, the KimberlyKupps.com site does not have a reputation as being extreme or fringe content," Walters told XBIZ. "I hope that these recent victims of the Sheriff’s anti-sex campaign are victorious in their upcoming 1st Amendment battle.
"Without exception, the taxpayers of Polk County don’t want their tax money going to this kind of nonsense prosecution, and many are questioning how two adults creating adult material in their home could possibly be illegal."
