The History of Porn Marketing

Believe it or not, pornography has been around way before video cameras and a strong internet connection. However, there has been some dramatic changes to porn marketing thanks to the creation of the internet.

Where it all started

Porn has been around for centuries. However, visual pornography made its first appearance in the 1800’s, when erotic novels went to print. Sex industry marketing was unheard of in the 19th century as porn was confined to erotic books. The subject was also still a very taboo one. In 1846, the first pornographic image appeared and by 1896. French filmmakers started to create short; silent erotic clips. However, these were all heard about via word of mouth before being seen in public viewings.

How has it changed?

With the invention of the internet and the digital camera, porn has dramatically shifted from a public affair to more of a private experience. This was helped with the likes of online websites and DVD rentals. Of course, the general topic of sex is dramatically less of a taboo subject compared to previous centuries; thanks to the evolution of technology and digital marketing.
