The real question you should be asking about porn in the UK is, why is the government opposed to porn?
Hardcore pornography has been freely, yes freely, available in the Uk for over 30 years. By that I do not mean under age or forced or sex involving creatures. Yet we were told if pornography was to be allowed the country would turn into a sex crime ridden country.
There is not the slightest evidence for this over the 30 year period.
Sex crime statistics per capita have hardly moved at all, less than 1% of the population (and that is still too high a price but it's not fuelled by porn). Yes , we have (especially now) high profile cases. Yet they are in the minority.

Daily Mail readers and the like can't get their head around other people having sex, hence we get the quarterly story of how school kids have only just now started to be attracted to each other, mail readers are the tory vote base so the upcoming ban on porn is to appease them.

The first online credit card transaction was to pay for porn.

Im pretty sure people pay for porn. There are some hardcore fans of every um hobby/entertainment industry, certainly there are entire citys worth of people who know porn stars by name.

I actually knew a porno producer at one time. They paid girls very well. He also operated a sex shop, where he sold tons of porno tapes. The only reason DVD is the standard video format is because porno sales indicate lazy masterbators have no interest in updating to Blu-ray. Yes, our video format is quite literally dictated by porno sales.

They used to make good money, but now most of the girls in porn are also having to do call girl work on the side to make ends meet.

Pun intended?

They make far more money then you'd ever believe, and it's PASSIVE INCOME.

Why would they even bother with a hub and spoke pay portal service, when they can go back to creating more porn, some they even star in so it becomes a 2 birds one stone deal.

The Ads are from everything to services lonely or needy men might find interesting, such as penis growing pills and companionship apps, to whomever wants to target those types of people watching porn. It's less about the context of content and more about the types of audience, since that's where the ads are being focused on, since they are highest in the goal funnel of marketing too.

The Porn sites make load of money, just selling the ad space to advertisers, think about that income from all those people watching porn EVERYDAY! 10cents to even a dollar or more depending on the actions involved per person, times 365 days a year. Often when they're chillin on the beach.

Thing is, this model of income, is popular in EVERY Niche, you think porn is big, lol, check out the gaming industry and youtube marketing channels.

Advertising is going the way of Minority Report, and your data is worth a new house over the course of your life, if not more.

Enough people still pay for it for it to be a viable business.

But the amount of money that the producers and performers make has collapsed over the last decade.

They used to make good money, but now most of the girls in porn are also having to do call girl work on the side to make ends meet.

this is the closest to the right answer so far.
Sites like Pornhub literally steal content which they stream for free, then make their own money via ad revenue.
it's not a huuge problem for the big mainstream companies who have all sorts of dvd production deals etc going on, but it's making life a lot harder for independent performers and small studios. which sucks for everyone because it's always the independents who do the interesting creative stuff.

Are there any dirty magazines around anymore? Do they bother to print up porn and still sell it?


Yes there are still magazines in print available...

In Fact I have the full year of Y2K issues of Playboy, unopened, hermetically sealed in plastic, just as the Publisher intended for distribution in the US Mail (USPS)

I might be coaxed to sell the 'set' for the right price ~ or Not ~ magazine porn might be a Contraband item when Sharia Law replaces the civil laws in the forseeable future in the USA... and thus highly valuable as a black-market item

PM if so inclined

I'm sure that there are plenty of people who buy the premium memberships to the free sites.

Who? I know no person who has or ever would pay a premium for stuff that's free! Advertisement revenue? Again with no big boys capable of paying millions on board I fail to see where they do actually get the money from? I think the op has started a fresh rabbit hole.

Pornography is free and open to anyone with an internet connection.

So how does it continue to be funded and produced on such a massive scale?

Is pornography black budget promoted for some psychological end?

My motto has always been "follow the money" on conspiracy topics but, if everything is free, where is the money coming from?

Because some people are exhibitionists and enjoy being filmed while having sex?

I still want to know why i cant masturbate in public and blame it on someone else, but this is a close second.

At least i'm consistent, theme wise

In all seriousness tho, there are adults who dont know how to use tube sites etc and are scared to dip their, er, toe in.

So they spend tons on dvds at sex shops. There are some newsagents in my area that still stock masses of noody magazines. Like masses.

Eta. I think a local organisation buys them up and leaves them "spread" open in local bushes. Very witty i'm sure you'll agree

Could just be as simple as the guys are using their own money to make stuff they want and get to have sex with women. Maybe they don't care if it makes money.
