„The Internet contains a lot of pornography”. Allow me to rephrase that. „The Internet contains an enormous amount of pornography” (that’s closer to the truth).Venereal Dermatology, the New Trend in Pornography - Tuesday, April 18, 2006 -
It’s impossible to say just how much porn there is out there. Some malicious voices say that 99 percent is just pornography, and the rest of 1% represents other types of content. Even if these are not the correct proportions, the amount of obscene materials is more than impressive and this had led to market saturation.
The result? Porn seekers, bored of the same images on all the sites, have begun to search for exotic materials with a certain medical touch.
According to Reuters, the new trend in pornography consists of images of diseased genitalia from dermatology websites.
Dr Christoph Lehmann and colleagues, from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, noticed a marked jump in queries for images of genital areas from their searchable archive of clinical photographs.
"Developers of online clinical image libraries containing potentially sensitive health information on topics such as sexuality and anatomy must be aware of issues beyond technical and domain knowledge," the news agency quoted the authors as saying.
An analysis of the top 43 referring sites to the dermatology service revealed that 21% were pornographic or fetish sites.
