Yes! This is my definition:
1. The fornications of wisdom
2. The harlotry of wisdom
The unashamed exhibition of the mind's workings (preferably one's own), or of the results thereof, intended to cause mental &/or intellectual excitement and the indecent enflaming of the mind.
First usage of the word (as an adjective: pornosophical) by James Joyce in Ulysses, Chapter 15 (Circe).
