Reddit Flipboard Selling sex is one of the oldest businesses in the world, and right now, business has never been better. One of the biggest cultural changes in the United States over the past 25 years has been the widespread acceptance of sexually explicit material - pornography. In the space of a generation, a product that once was available in the back alleys of big cities has gone corporate, delivered now directly into homes and hotel rooms by some of the biggest companies in the United States. Consumer demand is so strong that it has seduced some of America's biggest brand names, and companies like General Motors, Marriott and Time Warner are now making millions selling erotica to America. Last November, Correspondent Steve Kroft reported on this billion-dollar industry. The best place to see it is at the industry's annual convention in Las Vegas, where more than adult entertainment companies gather under one roof to network, schmooze and show off their latest wares.

The Porn Industry's Dark Secrets
Sarah Lee for the Guardian The last time I saw Gail Dines speak, at a conference in Boston, she moved the audience to tears with her description of the problems caused by pornography, and provoked laughter with her sharp observations about pornographers themselves. Activists in the audience were newly inspired, and men at the event — many of whom had never viewed pornography as a problem before — queued up afterwards to pledge their support. The scene highlighted Dines's explosive charisma and the fact that, since the death of Andrea Dworkin, she has risen to that most difficult and interesting of public roles: Dines is also a highly regarded academic and her new book, Pornland: She wrote it primarily to educate people about what pornography today is really like, she says, and to banish any notion of it as benign titillation. According to Dines's research the prevalence of porn means that men are becoming desensitised to it, and are therefore seeking out ever harsher, more violent and degrading images. Even the porn industry is shocked by how much violence the fans want, she says; at the industry conferences that Dines attends, porn makers have increasingly been discussing the trend for more extreme practices.
Apology after Japan porn industry coercion claims

A flurry of tabloid reporting placed Knox at the center of a media firestorm, where she was the subject of fascination, scorn, public shaming and threats. Eloquent, educated, entrepreneurial and willing to speak her mind, Knox published public replies to her detractors, but even those replies were met with skepticism and scorn. Apparently, prurient concern for porn stars -- well-meaning as it may seem -- rarely includes listening when an actual sex worker speaks or writes about her experiences.
The fact is that the porn industry is filled with violence, drugs, coercion, disease, and exploitation. These personal accounts are never pretty. I have tried to block it out from my memory due to the severe abuse that I received during the filming.
