I got your attention!
While reading the blogs this morning….and everyday since beginning this class, I came across one I would like to comment on. Actually, I would love to comment on everyone's but like this title says, there is not enough time in a week and I really have to go food shopping to stock my home so my children can eat! (Can you believe they are complaining!)
Which brings me to my response to MightyMo who asks "I just don’t understand how an industry can be so large and people know virtually nothing about it? " Well, my belief is that pornography is a lot like alcohol and gambling and drugs. I believe it is an addiction and once you get a taste of it, you can't get enough.
Take my example for starters. I never heard of Danni or her website, never heard of sexblo.gs or AVN, etc, etc. I can go on and on. My husband, who I have stated in other postings, is like any other male in this world – if he is able to see a naked girl, or two having sex with each other or another male or whatever, he is going to watch. I added to his pleasure by emailing him the cartoon of Bert and Ernie. I thought it was funny! Anyway, so did he. I showed him the website although I typed in sexblo.com. I introduced him to another site he knew nothing about! Good going! I am an idiot – but I digress.
My main point and to answer the question, is that this is addicting, even for me. There is so much out there that we do not know about, so how could it be so successful? Because the few that are in it, support it in a big way. I have never been to Foxwoods, Las Vegas or Atlantic City, but gambling is a big industry as well. (Although this is a poor example since most people, unless living in isolation, have heard of these places.)
I believe the majority of the population have not heard of these websites, companies, etc. because they are not looking for it. Seek and you shall find. Seek more and you shall find more. Seek more and you will want more. And you will pay for it. And even though there is a large population enjoying it, there is even a larger population not even knowing it exists. But the ones that know it is there are dropping every penny into the industry to keep themselves satisfied and the big companies happy too! That is how it is such a big money maker. It is an addiction and like most addictions, people will pay big to feed it.
