Doctor By Day, Porn Collector By Night

He owns 350,000 pieces of pornography but don’t call him a dirty old man. The New York Daily News profiles a 61-year-old retired doctor, Clifford Scheiner, one of the world’s most prolific collectors of erotica, in today’s paper. Scheiner says his fascination with the subject is “purely academic.” One of the unexpected perks of his hobby? Learning “most of the dirty words in most of the languages that use the Roman alphabet.” After amassing a collection that includes everything from “13th century manuscripts to every issue of Playboy and Screw magazine ever printed,” Scheiner says his interest have diverged recently. These days, “his interest [has turned] to Orthodox Judaism and [he] spends his days poring over the Torah and the Talmud.”
