I might not be where I am now if I had had access to all this free porn when I was a teen.

I get that these tube sites are wrong because they host a lot of pirated material, but the other claims made against them don't make sense to me. Even before tube sites became popular it was easy for children to come across porn on the internet. The first time I came across internet porn was from spam emails. Also, the idea that tube sites in particular are detrimental to the types of attitudes people develop about sex is ridiculous. I can understand saying that all porn could have this affect, but I don't see how tube sites should get all the blame for this and other porn should be left off the hook. I think the makers of this film are bitter because they can't make as much money off of porn as they used to. So they want to blame tube sites for every bad thing that porn could do. I think that the biggest problem with tube sites would be that anyone could upload any video they want. So we now have a lot of cases of revenge porn.

It would be interesting to have a comparative account of what goes on in that industry here. My guess is that it would be more exploitative than the

women (who) get only around 15 percent of what their clients pay to watch them perform online

Then there are the mags and the manga ... I wonder if there are still many vending machines serving people with various fetishes, or do people just get that kind of stuff online now?

You'll always get backlash in any industry when widespread access results in extremely fierce competition and therefore lower wages. This is modern day porn, you have to up your game otherwise you'll be out of the industry just like in any other industry. Sounds like sour grapes

Love it when porn stars (former or not) and producers act like scared virgins when 'tube' sites are mentioned! Hypocrisy much? Sour grapes from ppl who arrived in the porn industry either too late or were too greedy to quit before the bubble burst.

Mid-late 80s (and probably earlier too) VHS porn wasn't 'pretty' nor clean either. Only difference is you could get filthy rich in no time. Times have changed, bubble has burst.

Get a good pop up blocker.
