If you remember, New York had a lot of problems with sex, drugs, gambling and such through the middle 1900s. But we are certainly looking at different times, with the internet emerging. An ad in Times Square is not only seen by passersby in New York anymore, but the whole world can have easy and open access to the advertisement.

Many people already know about Pornhub. It has gotten so popular that people have given more permission to its open use. Even some celebrity pornstars like Sasha Grey are glamorizing the lifestyle. Normally pornstars would be more in the voiceless underground. But now they can Twitter their messages to fans. They also make nonporn related videos on Youtube, like Miss Jessie Rogers:

People can store thousands of pics on their computers and sometimes bury questionable content among it. What are the authorities to do in handling this increased amount of pornography?
