  17. 17. Underage Viewing<br />Pornography must be viewed by an adult, meaning they are at least 18 (21 in some countries)<br />Most pornographic websites have age verification applications, but all a person has to do is click a button or fill out a birth date which then gives access to these websites<br />(10)<br />
  18. 18. Legal Issues<br />There are many legal issues surrounding internet pornography but it is simply to hard to censor the internet and that is why it is still so readily available today.<br />Also many countries have their own laws and beliefs when it comes to internet pornography, or any types of pornography<br />

Now millions of people view these images each day and has become the largest chunk of E-commerce producing hundreds of millions of dollars each year.<br />Internet pornography does have its downsides but the positives it has created out weigh them so greatly that I believe it has, in part made the world what it is today.<br />
