Abstract

This piece analyses and situates the crisis Pornhub currently faces. It argues that the crisis is largely of Pornhub’s own making and is symptomatic of an industry ripe with deep issues that are starkly at odds with contemporary values. As a result, this crisis will likely only mark the beginning of Pornhub’s unraveling.

Keywords: Pornhub; pornography; crisis; public relations, antitrust; racism
