I just read that the mass penalties on the adult sites a few days ago has been corrected (at least for some). I believe when the first sites were hit in May, Google was testing a new link/penalty filter that has been spreading slowing. Once they have fine tuned it they could roll it out to the entire web. The testing of this on adult sites had a huge impact on many business, and given the nature of adult SEO, it's likely most could not submit re-inclusions request so Google had to take a proactive stance on lifting the penalty.
