I keep seeing these pop up here for practically $100.

Also how many hentais made to the US market? It would have to be rather low since anime was a really niche market itself.

p0rn LDs were pricey to begin with. The MSRP for them was usually $59.95.

But no, they really shouldn't cost that much 2nd hand, unless they're titles that haven't been re-released on DVD I suppose.

I have listed some on The Bay of E that sold for more than $100 which totally surprised me.

As far as Hentai in the US goes, I can only name Urotsukidoji and U-Jin Brand.

The same seller listed them on eBay for years with no takers. He seems to be having slightly better luck on here so far, probably helped by the fact that eBay's Laserporn category has been shut down.

As with anything else, they're worth whatever somebody is willing to pay.

I heard recently it was due to a 'p0rn tax' imposed by Pioneer USA (meaning Pioneer charged extra for the manufacture of p0rn discs) though I haven't been able to verify that information. I always thought the high prices were simply due to lower production numbers when compared with mainstream releases, thus forcing the higher MSRP to recoup costs.

I think the customs have a preemption right if they find such material in the mail (it will get destroyed).
It's clearly illegal in the USA.

Other countries had a much younger age of consent and it's not deemed illegal there.
