Agenda For Sunday Morning: Paper, Brunch, Porn

from the moral-decay dept

According to a British video-on-demand site, the most popular time for British people to watch its porn films is 11:16 on Sunday mornings. Meanwhile, Hitwise, which tracks internet traffic, says Sundays' most popular destinations are shopping and social-networking sites. But its most interesting bit of research is a bit buried: it contends that since September, social-networking sites have garnered more web traffic than porn sites. But, as the video-on-demand guy points out, it's possible, or even likely, that a certain amount of adult content has merely shifted onto the social networks.

    Now, if someone could figure out how to create a Social Network with Porn on it, or mix porn with brunch.

    Porn gives way to family fare

    When the VCR was introduced, porn outsold any other videotape class. When the price dropped and access was more generalized, family fare like Disney outsold porn by a significant margin. Same happened with DVDs. It seems logical that eventually porn will be outsold even on the Internet. Of course, it is true that in each instance porn had moved on to the next technological innovation, magnifying the effect of being "outdone". So what's next after the Internet? Maybe porn will be the first neural implant content to become popular.
