21. Porn controls digital media. A great example was VHS. Before everyone was on board with VHS, Betamax was fighting tooth and nail for control.

3. Male porn performers do not bring home all that much bacon. They can make more money performing in gay porn than straight porn – up to three times as much per film, in fact. This is known as “gay for pay.”

2. Just about half of the Internet is made up of porn or porn-related content.
