Article III Groupie was one of the first bloggers to discuss Justice Scalia's recent visit to NYU Law, but she was definitely not the last. The controversy set the blogosphere ablaze; everyone had something to say. (For a useful compilation of notable posts, check out this round-up at Outside the Whale, or this post by Law Dork's Chris Geidner -- which includes an email about the incident from NYU Dean Richard Revesz.)
In her post about the controversy, A3G described the events at NYU as disgraceful and mortifying. Well, just when she thought things couldn't get any worse, they did.

Justice Scalia is now featured on a gay porn site called Nightcharm: Gay Porn and Naked Men Pictures. Thankfully, he does not appear in the porn section of the site; rather, his appearance at NYU is discussed in the site's blog. But A3G was still shocked and disturbed just to see the words "Justice Scalia" on the same web page as a photograph of a naked male pleasuring himself. (For the record, and in case you're wondering, Article III Groupie only learned of Nightcharm through her website referrers log; the Nightcharm post linked back to the UTR post about "Sodomy-gate.")
Nightcharm's post about Justice Scalia features a well-endowed young man in boxer briefs and a tank top that reads, "Justice Scalia, Do You Sodomize Your Wife?" The posts that immediately follow are entitled "Grant: Hard Rockin' and Rock-Hard" and "How to Have a Lucid Wet Dream." Noscitur a sociis? Methinks not.
Another odd place that the "Scalia at NYU" controversy has turned up: on a discussion board about role-playing games. Surprising and strange -- although somewhat less bizarre than the appearance on the porn site. After all, A3G wouldn't be surprised to find a 20-sided die in Justice Breyer's jacket pocket, right next to his pocket Constitution. And rumor has it that Justice Ginsburg forces her clerks to play Magic: The Gathering with her...*
* This is a joke. An outing to the opera would be a more likely way for Justice Ginsburg to spend quality time with her clerks.
