More details in the link to the original Guardian article:

British billionaire's "I Am Not A Pornographer" letter raising questions already answered by the letter

Richard Desmond, a British billionaire who was formerly the propreitor of adult television channels and wank mags, does not wish to be known as a pornographer. In fact, he apparently feels it is illegal to call him such and is demanding that Wikipedia cease doing so.

Well, he shouldn't have run that company that published wank mags and shot and aired pornographic films then.

Fun fact - remember the old Express ads with a cheery paperboy shouting "Express delivery!"? Well, the voice came from Des's own son, and the ad was recorded in the Television X studios. Hope the kid was wearing shoe protectors.

In fact, "Express delivery!". Fnar fnar.

When #3 son was looking for work as a photographer/graphic designer a mate got him an interview at a place he didn't know much about.
Halfway through the interview two completely naked models showed up. Which surprised him, as the nature of the company hadn't been divulged at that point. Apparently they did this (they said) to see how he would react to nude women. I think it was a bit seedier than that.

Desmond's Filthorama.

The same story appears in "The Pornographer Diaries" by former wank mag journalist Danny King. Apparently a standard phasing test for new staff.

In fact, in the book the company owner bears a striking resemblance to guess who...

King described it as like applying for any job in journalism: take along some cuttings of your best bits, do a WPM typing test, show that you know the magazine's circulation and target demographic. Then once employed, write copy in time for the next edition.

He said that the main questions he was asked were do you meet the models, have you dated a model, are the letters real, and can you get me some free magazines? To which his answers were rarely, hell no, the mad ones yes and the competently written sexy stories no, and yes that I can do.
