The Porn Business of Pleasure DVD explores how the porn industry is coping with the world's growing appetite for its wares. It was once too taboo to talk about, but now this "other Hollywood" is facing many of the same issues as other media. The Porn Business of Pleasure CNBC DVD peels back the sheets on the $13 billion porn industry.
The Porn Business of Pleasure DVD takes you deep inside the industry that consumers can't get enough of. Every second, $3,075 is spent on porn, more than 28,000 Internet users are viewing it, and 372 internet users are typing keywords into search engines to find it. But as this CNBC DVD shows, as porn enters the mainstream and loses its taboo edge - part of what has made it so alluring to the consumer and profitable for the industry - the porn industry is facing its biggest threats yet. This DVD from the CNBC Store shows porn's profits are under assault, and piracy and a weak economy have forced DVD sales down 40% in the last year. In fact, porn is just another branch of the publishing industry, facing the same hurdles as books, magazines, and ''old media.''
In the Porn Business of Pleasure DVD, CNBC's Melissa Lee takes viewers inside the porn industry for the first, all-access look at the big budgets, the small players, the superstars and the one issue that could bring the adult industry to its knees.
The Porn Business of Pleasure DVD includes more than 30 minutes of bonus material, including extended interviews with adult industry star Sasha Grey; Vivid Entertainment CEO, Steven Hirsch; and Digital Playground's Jesse Jane.
