The article argues that Home & Garden Television has some pornographic content in its programming. It appeals to the most prurient fantasies. The network's most arousing programming even features the mainstay of adult cinema which is overindulgence. The "Dream House" documentary series narrates the tales of lustful obsessives as they set about constructing their ultimate residence. It is an established fact that pornography is a driver of new-media penetration.
