If you can't watch, let us tell you about it. Courtesy of Good Magazine, the video lists some amazing statistics concerning porn's total dominance of the Internet. But instead of using boring pie charts, Good has gone and written the statistics in magic marker on the skin of a very attractive young lady. And, actually, there is a pie chart in there!

Though it's far from breaking news that Internet porn is so popular, these numbers are pretty amazing:
  • 12 percent of all Web sites are porn
  • 25 percent of all search engine requests are for porn
  • 35 percent of all Internet downloads are pornographic
  • Every second, 28,258 Internet users are viewing porn
  • 89 percent of porn is created in the U.S.
  • $2.84 billion in revenue was generated from U.S. porn sites in 2006
  • 70 percent of the Internet porn traffic occurs during the nine to five workday
  • 260 new porn sites go online daily
