You can buy a fast exit server, and choose it as your default exit. 
You can also build a private Tor network, and limit it to paying
customers. (I'm welcome to suggestions as to which jurisdicions
are most suitable in that respect).

It doesn't matter what you write, if your local jurisdiction
outlaws e.g. pedophilia or persecutes online fraud and is serious
about it you will receive more attention from LEOs and lawyers
