News: Wanna Get Rich? Sell Porn

 
 
 

Online porn is big. Really big.   According to figures collected by CyberAtlas:
       

  • Growth rate of 1,800% in five years: 14 million pornography-related     webpages in 1998 to roughly 260 million in 2003. An additional 28 million     pages during the month of July alone.
  •    

  • Nearly all (90 percent) of kids aged 8-16 have viewed porn online, mostly     while doing homework.
  •    

  • Internet pornography accounts for $2.5 billion of the $57 billion     worldwide market.
  •    

  • There are 4.2 million porn Web sites ? 12 percent of the total amount of     sites ? allowing access to 72 million worldwide visitors annually.
  •    

  • One-quarter of total daily search engine requests, or 68 million, are for     pornographic material.
  •    

  • Daily pornographic e-mails: 2.5 billion.
  •    

  • Average daily porn e-mails per user: 4.5.
  •    

  • Monthly peer-to-peer porn downloads 1.5 billion.
  •    

  • Men accessing porn at work 20%.
  •    

  • Women accessing porn at work 13%.
  •    

  • Adults admitting to Internet sex addiction 10%.
There is another side to this. A lot technological innovation on the web   has been spearheaded by porn sites. Not always good innovation — pop up   windows, for example — but there has been good stuff: online credit card usage,   for example. My worry is less that there’s a lot of porn around, but that it   uses more intrusive techniques to propagate. As one reader recently pointed out,   if you’re an upright, traditional citizen, opening your email these days can be   an unnerving and unpleasant experience. Porn online must be fenced off, as it is   in the high street, so that it doesn’t offend and scare away ordinary folk from   the Internet.

  1. How can you find out how much money you should be getting for your homemade porn so you don’t get ripped off.

  2. Want to start a web cam site with girls in my house and downloading and selling videos an pics but need to know where to start. And don’t want a bunch of adds from people….want people who already do this and can help with experience.
