…Internet porn is an interesting subject?

It should come as no surprise that the internet and porn are connected at the hip, but when you actually think about the numbers behind the pornography industry, it can be a bit overwhelming.

For instance, did you know that 35% of all internet downloads are pornographic? Or how about the fact that the United States spends $13.6 billion dollars every year on porn?

For those fun facts and more, check out this handy infographic that OnlineEducation.net put together:

…It’s Website Wednesday: WikiProject Porn Stars?

So somehow I got the days confused and managed to post a Things Thursday on a Wednesday, and completely ignore Website Wednesday in the process, so here’s my repentance:

Wikipedia is really looking to push the boundaries of decency with their latest project: Porn Stars. From the site:

    The project aims to implement a consistent format for articles of pornographic actors, actresses and models, as well as related infobox templates. Additionally, the project is to implement a standard means of procuring information on pornographic actresses, as well as to address what is proper for an encyclopedic article on porn stars.

I guess if you’re going to be the place to go for online information about anything and everything, you can’t just ignore the porn world. That would be like ignoring a substantial part of the history of the Internet. Surprisingly (or not surprsingly depending on how you view the ‘Pedia) the articles are actually pretty informative, giving a complete career history, filmography, appearances, and much more. Plus, you can finally get the “real or fake” question answered by more than just a “dude, totally”. It’s a dirty world, but somebody’s got to document it.
