Porn Industry Revealed

The porn industry is not made up of a bunch of goons skulking around dark alleys. It is as corporate as any other corporation — ExxonMobile, Walmart, or AT&T.

Journalist Julie Bindel has penned a story on Big Porn for The Spectator‘s inaugural U.S. edition. In the piece, she describes the stunning size of the business: “Annual revenue from the global porn industry has been estimated at up to $90 billion. (To put that into context, Hollywood makes about $10 billion a year.)”

Dr. Gail Dines, president & CEO of Culture Reframed, who has studied the business of porn, characterizes its dominance: “Porn, like all major global industries, interfaces with banks, credit cards, mainstream media and multiple social media platforms. Every one of these industries has a vested economic interest in the continuation and growth of the porn industry.”

Dines asserts that pornographers target those without credit cards — kids — with vast quantities of free online content. The free porn acts as a ‘teaser’ to lure viewers to paid sites. Dines has also compared Big Porn to Big Tobacco. “Just as the tobacco industry argued for decades that there was no proven connection between smoking and lung cancer, so, too, has the porn industry—with the help of a well-oiled public relations machine—denied the existence of more than 40 years of empirical research on the impact of its products.”
