Business Trip Porn – A multi-billion dollar industry worldwide

Pornography is a constantly changing industry, where new companies and sites pop up every day. Here are five famous adult websites that you’ll want to bookmark before they disappear.

“Adult” is a term used for any sexual activity perceived as not appropriate for children or teenagers. The delineation between pornography and adult content is not always clear, with criteria based on the physical, psychological and sociological context of production, presentation to the public or age restriction. 

Pornography/adult entertainment is a multi-billion dollar industry worldwide. In the US alone, the adult entertainment industry is an $8 billion a year business. Here’s some stats and facts you might be surprised to learn:

* It is estimated that pornography has been viewed online at least 1 billion times every day.

* 68% of internet users in the U.S. have watched porn in the past month, and 21% said they’ve visited an adult website during that time period (according to a 2005 survey).

* Pornography touches nearly every aspect of our society, including children and teenagers who have access to it via home computers, school computers or laptops at home or in the classroom.

* Over a quarter of all internet subscribers (26%) have watched “hard-core” porn
