Porn Laws Around the World [infographic]

Hope everyone had a good weekend! To start the week off right, I thought I would share this infographic with all of you. Thank you to my roommate for the suggestion. Though a very taboo theme, porn is something that is very present in society. Like it or hate it, porn is an industry with huge appeal that makes millions of dollars per year.

In my sociology class my freshman year, we discussed working in the sex industry, and as it turns out, it offers a huge salary with little to no work. Some people even see the woman’s role as being powerful because she controls what happens. In fact women make more money than many of the men. It is obvious as to why some countries would consider making porn illegal, but if you live in a country with free speech, an act like this would be hard to pass.

In today’s infographic, we see a world map showing the legal, illegal, where there is no data, and where there are some restrictions. As could be assumed, states in which there are more democratic governments are the states in which there are the least amount of restrictions in regards to porn. One of the odder laws I discovered on this inofgraphic was a law Australia has. In Australia women with A-cups or smaller are banned from acting in porn, because the government fears it will encourage pedophilia. One of the more moral laws I saw comes from Brazil, where they require that all their actors wear condoms to endorse safe sex.[via]
