Internet Turns Porn Industry Mainstream?

The BBC are running an interesting story about the porn industry's mainstreaming over the internet.

Has a once thought of as seedy, but always thought of as lucrative industry gone mainstream due to technology?

"In the UK alone it is estimated to be worth £1bn, says the Adult Industry Trade Association. It even has its own trade show which attracts more visitors than the Ideal Home Exhibition, according to its organisers.

It used to conjure up images of backstreet sex shops and dirty, old men, but the rise of new technology has meant anyone can set up a website and - should they so desire - become a porn star. So is pornography becoming an acceptable career option?

Francesca, 59, lives in rural Oxfordshire and is one of the UK's most popular internet porn stars. She has her own website and is known as a BBW - a big, beautiful woman. She charges £15 a month for access to erotic photos and film footage of herself having sex with subscribers."

I've never heard of a BBW before but im sure there are plenty of people out there that think she's just great. With so many sexual peculiarities to cater for, im sure the BBC are on the right track with this.

I know we have some adult webmasters in here, so without dropping links, for obvious reasons, do air your views...
