Infographics porn

Infographics is definitely the new spreadsheet porn. Seriously, the pun is intended.

After the initial scan, I would suggest you to take a closer look to an infographics analytics well done. Jon Millward has data mined more than 10,000 profiles of porn stars in the Internet Adult Film Database. The result is the big data of porn, a set of facts that would surprise you and your perceptions about sex films on the Internet. This infographics also shows the much insight you can get from such a collection: the evolution of the industry, the target audience and the evolution of the products and the demands.

You might also wonder how big is porn on the Internet. Take a site like YouPorn for instance. Quoting ExtremeTech's very insightful article:
To put that 800Gbps figure into perspective, the internet only handles around half an exabyte of traffic every day, which equates to around 50Tbps — in other words, a single porn site accounts for almost 2% of the internet’s total traffic. There are dozens of porn sites on the scale of YouPorn. The Internet really is for porn.
