I knew the adult industry must have been pretty large and had to be making a ton of money but I had no idea how much money they were making prior to watching American Porn.  To hear that one of the film series was making a “profit of ten million dollars” was really surprising and makes you realize how giant the industry is.  It seems as if it is a industry that will never go out of business especially since their “international business is growing in 30-something countries”.  This tells us even more of how much the industry is expanding by spreading into other countries also. 

Another thing that I was surprised by while watching the video was hearing about all the lawsuits that were against the adult industry kingpins because they were offended by the porn that was being made and sold.  I could see the offense if it was in view or it was easily accessible by their children but other than that I would not have thought that other adults would be offended by it since it is natural for them to engage in sexual activities with their partners also. 

Going off that, the sex shop Hustler Hollywood was said to be really successful even though their shop has glass windows to make it visible to the public with the hope to “break the stereotype that sex is dirty”.  Now it is strange that the shop has glass windows so it would make sense for adults to be offended if they did not want their kids being able to see whats inside when they walk by.  But, the fact that it is so successful goes to show that people are comfortable with going in and purchasing from the sex shop rather than them being offended that there is a sex shop in view for every to see into.
