Porn industry involves the production and distribution of sexually explicit and offensive materials that are used to entertain adults.

However, the most popular components of the trade are adult motion pictures and Internet porn.
British Broadcasting Corporation Home. The US adult entertainment industry is the latest to claim the economic downturn is costing it dear. Veteran pornographer Larry Flynt was among a delegation who lobbied congress hoping to win a tax reprieve for the massive US porn industry.
Flynt, founder of Hustler magazine, and Joe Francis, the man behind the Girls Gone Wild video series, are seeking Congress's help in propping up the porn market, which, they say, has become the latest victim of the global economic downturn. More and more, the kind of entertainment they turn to is adult entertainment. Owen Moogan, a spokesman for Flynt, told CNN: "The take here is that everyone and their mother want to be bailed out, from the banks to the big three.
The Hustler magazine founder has teamed up with fellow adult entertainment mogul Joe Francis, creator of the Girls Gone Wild video series, to approach Congress for the same kind of financial assistance recently approved for car manufacturers.

AVN's four-day expo is expected to lure adult stars, about 25, visitors and plus exhibitors showcasing the latest in adult novelties, DVDs and technology.
LAS VEGAS — The latest joke around the adult entertainment industry is that sales have slid enough to justify asking the federal government for a bailout. Companies say people were already spending less on naughty DVDs before the economy went sour, increasingly turning to pirated copies and YouTube-like Web sites that stream clips for free and undercut companies working to sell adult content. And now, with consumers tightening spending as much as they can, those who work in the industry say paid pornography is the first thing to go. The industry has been poking fun at its economic predicament the past week.
Porn is a very lucrative business and it is in great demand. The sex industry is the largest and most profitable industry in the world. This includes street prostitution, strip clubs, phone sex, and pornography.
Finally, in this era of unprecedented government bailouts, there is an industry worthy of our tax dollars. In a story that no sportswriter could invent, CNN last night reported that another major American industry is asking for assistance as the global financial crisis unfolds.
