Erotic fonts

This page on Font World has me really wishing I could read German. Apparently, I have to be registered to download the fonts. (Snagged from Daze Reader.)

English version at http://fontworld.net/_en/erotic.html

The front page says "Due to a law suit is the font download-area temporarely closed."(sic) I wonder if there are other sources.

Oh yeah, judicious searching of various names on that page, along with the use of the Google cache, will retreive a few of those fonts.

Re the text on the right side of the front page:

"Nix" isn't German per se but "wie Ärger" is basically "what an annoyance" so the title is probably "don't be annoyed ..."

Loosely the German says "Unfortunately I'm having problems with a lawyer's office about some of these fonts. While this matter is still on the table, and until I can screen all of my sites thoroughly, the download area remains closed. The forums remain open for the moment and comments are encouraged."

Not much better than the English. I'm betting that someone accused him of pinching some of the silhouettes etc in the fonts. The Porn font in particular looks problematic.

Was there some particular font description you wanted translated?

[Edited to add that based on the top block from the font page, and the comment at the top of the English font page, I believe that the fonts may actually be stolen wholesale from other people - it doesn't sound like he made them himself. Even though I've NEVER seen these fonts anywhere else.]

Nah, I just wanted to register (as long as it was free or low cost) so I could download 'em. Maybe I'll take the time to go root through Google. Thanks, Dan.

(Didn't have any specific need for the fonts. Just a collector of erotic art.)

(When I can afford it.)
