…Peter Acworth is kinky?

Peter Acworth

The New York Times has been cranking out some winners lately. Their latest, A Disciplined Business, tells the tale of Peter Acworth, the man behind Kink.com, one of the country’s most successful fetish porn companies. The suite of 10 S and M and bondage themed sites owned by Peter now have 60,000 active subscribers, with each paying an average of $30 per month to access the content (I did the math for you, that’s $1.8 million per month). Don’t get your hopes up though. The story is about how difficult the online porn world has become, as it has now grown into a very competitive $3 billion per year industry. Who knew knot tying would be such a valuable skill?
