Another prominent innovation that pornography made popular was streaming content. Erotic pictures were not enough to meet demand so programmers of various porn sites worked to develop a format of video that functioned well in web browsers. Developments made in video led to the creation of another popular feature of online pornography: live chat. Live chat allowed paying customers to interact with women over theInternet.

With technology improving, it is harder to do have consequences for people who commit a crime; they could clean out their hard drive and never be caught.

The area that I am interested in is the effects of violent pornographyon men. There is a correlation between the amount of pornography consumed and attitudes that support violence against women. There is also an association between the type of pornography consumed (violent or non-violent) and their attitudes that support violence against women. Pornography contributes to the rape culture seen in today’s society. Men who watch more pornography and pornography that depicts non-consensual sexual activities are more likely to have attitudes that support violence and non-consensual sex with women.

ABSTRACT: Recently, DoubleClick.com, one of the world’s premier Internet advertising firms was at the center of a Federal Trade Commission investigation on privacy.
