This is, I believe, indeed the only possible solution. A gadget such as  
described would either be an economic failure, and swiftly vanish for one  
reason or another, or else it would become the focus of intense malicious  
testing. The testing crew would quickly discover set after set of  
salacious patterns that would get through the automated filter. An  
"upright primate" would need to work 24/7 improving the filter.

Eventually the fad would fade, and the filter, the primate and the upload  
booth would all be unemployed. Some other crazy contraption would appear  
instead, perhaps the 3-D printer booth intended to produce  
head-and-shoulders busts in genuine simulated bronze. Busy booth-hacker  
youth would quickly attempt sculpting "other" busts and a new filtering  
project would arise, eventually to fail as well. Supermarket tabloid  
headline: BUST BOOTH BUSTED. Full report on slashdot.
