The adult entertainment industry tends to flourish, whichever technology is current – in fact, it's usually one of the first and most prolific users of any new system that aids in the creation and distribution of material. 

The Internet was a case in point, with the pornography industry, as an early adopter, leading the way in the technology's use.
However, the very speed, accessibility and ease of distribution that characterises the Internet is causing a bit of a backlash which is hurting the established pornography players.
According to a report in the New York Times, the Internet – with its huge availability of low-cost pornographic photos and videos – is taking a toll in the sales of x-rated DVDs.
Nowadays, just about anyone has access to digital cameras, with the result that a flood of amateur footage is now available online – and users don't seem to mind that the quality doesn't match the "professional" players.
As a result, sales and rentals of pornographic videos were $3,62-billion in 2006, down from $4,28 billion in 2005, with the shortfall not nearly being made up by the Internet.
