Porn Panic I

A recent cover story in Canadian Business announced “Sex Isn’t Selling.” The all American analysis suggests there are some shifts in the porn industry, but using the story for the cover illustration contradicts the article’s conclusion that we are all bored by matters sexual. Meanwhile, the last annual report of the Ontario Film Review Board suggests there is still a demand for porn, at least in the old-fashion buy or rent DVD  format. The 2008-2009 report states the Board reviewed 2,786 adult film titles, up from 2,548  the previous year. Here’s the trend:

2002: 2386 films
2003: 2226
2004: 1997
2005: 1644
2006: 2061
2007: 2525
2008: 2548
2009: 2786

Rumours of the death of the industry may be exaggerated.
