Good Day Word!
It’s a porn… porn… porn world these days! You can’t escape the word – picture porn, marijuana porn, nature porn, and so on.
The word porn once simply meant pornography. Dirty photos. Nasty stuff. Naked people having sex in a whole myriad of ways. It had a bad rap. No one wanted to admit they read porn but it’s been around since…well forever!
Egyptians poked fun at penis sizes and dirty old men have sold it in dingy alleys since cities sprang up across the planet.
Porn now enjoys a prominent place in our economy. It’s presence on the internet is powerful. So powerful, that someone finally got around to exploring how to incorporate porn sites in advertising for their business – which by the way was food!

A food delivery business called Eat24 is boasting that it has gotten a lot of bang for its buck by placing ads on porn sites. According to ExtremeTech, "It's probably not unrealistic to say that porn makes up 30 percent of the total data transferred across the internet."
Eat24 management reports in a blog called "How to Advertise on a Porn Website" that, "When it comes to spreading our brand message, we usually take the road less traveled." Since the company claims it has taken absolutely no money from outside investors, it was trying to find ways to spread its message on a big scale for little money. "The Solution: Porn, the Internet's Unicorn."
Time for me to walk on down the road…
