The irony of it all is how much people who viewed adult content in the past were isolated. Negative stigmas were immediately cast on anyone who was caught viewing porn. That stain grew hundredfold if the person was found out to be working in the adult industry. It was why so many who looked at smut, did so in secrecy. However, all of that has changed significantly in the past decade or the last few years. Much of it has to do with internet freedom and technological advancements.
Granted many of them have had no choice since the floodgates have already been opened. Trying to stop it now will probably be as hard as closing the internet. That is not to say that there aren’t countries out there which prohibit and even punish people for viewing pornography. Some places restrict access to porn sites such as Youporn and several other well-known ones. But in countries where democracy reigns, the entire political orientation is being reshaped. Or being pushed further than any politicians and citizens ever imagined.
