Porn to Go? A Quarter Billion People Will Have Watched Mobile Porn By 2017

"I'm fairly sure if they took porn off the Internet, there'd only be one website left, and it'd be called 'Bring Back the Porn!" - Dr. Perry Cox (Scrubs)

A new study released today shows just how addicted the world is to pornogrpahy. And boy do we love us some porn.

According to a survey released last week by Juniper Research entitled "Mobile Adult Content: Monetisation, Technologies & Legislation 2013 – 2018," 250 million people will use thier cell phone or tablet to access porn by 2017. How desperate are we to watch porn? We're watching it on phones with 4-inch screens and on tablets. The most popular porn options on a cell phone or tablet are live cam shows, video, and images. We've finally reached the tipping point. America, porn is becoming too available.

With smart devices on the rise, and a virtual plethora of pornographic materials literally available at their fingertips, porn will encircle us. When porn becomes this available on smart devices weird and uncomfortable circumstances could arise. 250 million people is a lot of people. When you ride the bus, take a plane, or even carpool to work one of the people you are around will probably be watching porn mere feet from you. Wherever you go there's a decent chance someone will be watching porn.

Eww.
