The Emerging Pornographic Majority
Americans love their porn. It's timeless, instant, and recession proof. Pornography is the basis for a multibillion dollar industry that services the sexual desires and needs of thousands. Pornography is the catalyst of technology, from the much-documented triumph of the VHS format over Betamax, to the modern expansion of DVDs and the Internet. RealNetworks and Microsoft count pornographers among their biggest consumers for their streaming video products. Hotel chains and multimillion dollar telecommunications giants like AT&T; derive a significant portion of their income from the delivery of adult films via satellite and high speed lines. The widespread distribution of porn is the triumph of the free market system.

Surveys indicate that 30 percent of men single out premature ejaculation as their most common sexual problem, so it's no surprise that climax-control condoms have quickly become the fastest-growing segment of the condom market.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if, twenty years from now, we could look back at law-and-order Dan Burton's conversion as the "Nixon goes to China" turning point of the drug war?
