*Sigh*

Ok lets take point 1 first, sure nobody would want freenudegirls.com and a florist wont want flowers.xxx but the point of new TLD's is not to increase the number of domains available, fact is there are plenty of combinations left to use. The main aim has to be to catagories websites making it easier to find what you want. The above examples that you gave are bad ones, how about.....

whitehouse.com (sex site, not about the prez)
queen.com (sex site, not about any queen or the pop group queen)
girllinks.com (sex site, not exactly girl guides type stuff)
picturepics.com (sex site, but could be any type of pic site)
hotsunshine.com (sex site, could have been travel company?)
second-thought.com (yawn are you starting to get the idea yet?)

Fact is sex-sites make their money from people with credit cards, kids don't have credit cards so unlike the tobacco industry the sexsites have nothing to fear about moving to .sex and .xxx domains and therefore making it possible for browsers to prevent minors from reaching sexsites.

Point 2, the owners of the existing sexsites will just divert them to their new sites, correct! so these names are unlikely to be given back to the name-pool at least not in the short term, correct!  Does this mean kids will still access .com sexsites if they have been blocked from accessing .xxx and .sex sites.... no! if the material is held on a .xxx or .sex domain you can setup as many redirects from .com as you want with browser would still be capable of detecting that the content is coming from a .xxx/.sex site and block it.
