There are many pr0n package names...

Yup... It mounts stuff...
In open source many(if not most) programs/packages are named with some hidden(or obvious) second meaning/word play.
More refreshing than the sobre Microsoftish/proprietary language.

Search the package manager for libsexy:

"libsexy - Doing naughty things to good widgets."
