Porn on Internet – How Big?


Pornography, Prostitution, Single Mothers, Unmarried Men At A Historic High. Ideal Recipe for The War of Annihilation.

During WWII (1939-45)

The Japanese used comfort women. In India, the British commissioned Pathans to run brothels for British soldiers. Americans gave a huge surge to prostitution during the Asian wars.

With nearly 1 million soldiers in Asia, Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines became large centres for prostitution.

Modern pornography moved beyond the written word, to graphical representation after WWII. Usage of publications like Hustler, Playboy, Penthouse became mainstream for the first time in history. As the internet spread, so has pornography.

just how big are porn sites these days? The answer? Ron Jeremy big. To study porn sites, ExtremeTech turned to the DoubleClick Ad Planner tool from Google (GOOG). It’s a useful website where you can peek at information gathered by ad-serving cookies about how much traffic a website gets, the age and income of visitors, and the amount of time people spend on a site.

According to this tool, the online porn kingpin Xvideos feeds up 4.4 billion page views per month. That’s about 10 times as many as the New York Times and three times as many as CNN.com. YouPorn—another site packed full of stimulating content—notches 2.1 billion page views per month. And while people spend a few minutes per day on news sites, they tend to spend 15 minutes or more on porn sites

While anyone can dig through these numbers, ExtremeTech did a nice job of adding some context to the incredible amount of data served up by porn sites. According to the Google estimates, Xvideos would record “29 petabytes of data transferred every month, or 50 gigabytes per second. That’s about 25,000 times more than your home Internet connection is probably capable of, which is a couple of megabytes per second.” Sliced another way, Xvideos will “serve up 50 gigabytes per second, or 400Gbps,” ExtremeTech writes. “Bear in mind this is an average data rate, too: At peak time, Xvideos might burst to 1,000Gbps (1Tbps) or more. To put this into perspective, there’s only about 15Tbps of connectivity between London and New York.”

Someone at YouPorn chatted with ExtremeTech and said the Google estimates are way below actual totals. YouPorn stores more than 100TB of porn and feeds up about 28 petabytes per month.

These types of figures put the top porn sites in a class that only Microsoft (MSFT), Google, and Facebook really surpass. My takeaway from this is that companies such as Dell (DELL) and Cisco Systems (CSCO) make a ton of money selling gear to the top porn sites and that these companies must have some very savvy engineers.

The Indian Scene

While pornography has been available in India for most of the last 50 years, it has not been organized

As in US, Japan, Europe.

India does not have multi-million pornography corporations like Penthouse and Playboy which are publicly listed corporations, listed on US Stock exchanges.

This lack of organization in India makes it vastly different from Western organized pornography industry.

That was until the arrival of Sunny Leone in our drawing rooms …
