15 Things You Didn't Know About The Adult Entertainment Industry

There has been a lot of discussion about the adult film industry lately. Frankly, it seems that there is still a huge stigma attached to the thought of sitting down in front of a screen and having a little alone time. Statistics say many of you reading this will partake in this ritual at some point, and with the explosion of mobile electronics, adult content is now more mobile today than ever before.

If there are so many people who participate in making this industry grow, why are so many people shocked when people use it for profit? Take the Duke University Freshman Belle Knox for instance. The women’s studies major recently made headlines for being outed after making over 20 videos so far, enough to pay for her $50,000 tuition. Despite making so many happy, she has received hundreds of death threats on and off campus and was forced to withdraw from her classes as a safety precaution.
