I think that PayPal is lying about being forced by the credit card companies.

Paypal is doing this for economic reasons. It is well known that there are higher chargebacks on purchases of racy literature. Credit card companies can charge sellers higher rates for this, so if Paypal allows these sales, their credit card rates will go up on all credit card sales, not just the ones for these books.
