9780415920964: Obscene Profits: Entrepreneurs of Pornography in the Cyber Age

Sex sells. Already a ten-billion dollar business-and growing-most sex businesses require relatively low start-up costs and minimal equipment. No wonder retired porn stars, homemakers, college students, and entrepreneurs of every stripe are eager to jump on the smut band wagon. Following the money trail, or in this case, the telecom routes, the author reveals how some big phone companies are cashing in too. Obscene Profits offers a startling and entertaining new look at this very old business, and shows why pornography, in all of its variations--videos, magazines, phone-sex, spy cameras, etc.-- is one of the most profitable and popular new careers to come out of the electronic age.

From the Inside Flap:

PORNOGRAPHY ... Obscene Profits is an unblinking look at how dirty pictures, phone sex, and X-rated videos have become a $20 billion industry.

Thanks to changing social standards, aggressive marketing, and, above all, the economic benefits of new technology, the pornography industry has not merely survived but prospered.

In the process, the industry has expanded its ranks to include some of the nation's largest companies and thousands of new entrepreneurs.

PORNOGRAPHY ... It's always been about sex, but increasingly, it's about business as well.
