The porn industry makes in excess of 25 billion dollars each year and accounts for 30% of all Internet traffic globally. A content analysis of the 50 most popular videos found 88% of scenes contain physical aggression with 94% directed at women. Pornography has become so mainstream and so readily accessible, greatly influencing the sex lives of young people. So, why aren’t we talking about this? The Porn Factor seeks to bring the realities of pornography into the spotlight, by weaving interviews with the industry's directors and performers, leading academics, and young people together to understand the nature of contemporary porn and explore the influence and implications it has on all of us.
