The Geek-Kings of Smut

Hello Anti-Porn Friends! Are you ready for a comprehensive, illuminating, and disturbing education about the online porn business? If so, this article is for you! It’s from last year, but it is still current. This article will tell you all about how the “tube” porn sites started, and how one company (Manwin), which was started by one German man who is a self-described “geek” (Fabian Thylmann), has come to dominate the online porn industry. It also explains how (unfortunately) the current online “business model” for pornography has massively expanded online porn consumption:

““It’s a huge misconception that the industry is doing badly,” Feras Antoon tells me over rib eye and lobster tail at Delmonico, the Emeril Lagasse steakhouse at the Venetian in Las Vegas. “It’s moved on. It’s as simple as that.” And he insists that the tubes haven’t cannibalized paid content: People who consume only free porn, he argues, are people who, in the past, would not have consumed any. The people who paid for porn then will still pay for it now. Plus the tube sites have so vastly enlarged the total universe of porn consumers that the number of those who pay has ballooned along with it. Ten years ago, total daily adult-site traffic averaged less than 1 million unique visitors—on the entire Internet; today Manwin’s tube sites alone get 42 million daily uniques. “I personally have one or two memberships,” Antoon says jovially, “and I still go to the tubes. I get my appetizer on the tubes, my main course on one of the sites.””

How sad… In any case, if one is going to take a stand against something such as pornography, it’s important to understand how it is produced and distributed. So prepare yourself to learn some unpleasant facts you likely won’t be happy to know, (and to see some graphic images you won’t want to see…), and then start reading! And of course please like and share this post and comment with your thoughts when done reading the article. Thanks!
