Google A change to anything related to Google Search - the product so many of us rely on - is never going to go by unnotoced. This time around, Google has altered Image Search for US users to alter the way it handles that ever so important aspect of the web - adult content.

Hi,

"While the United States is by far the largest producer of it

Where do you get that idea?
After a quick search on google, I found that China was the biggest producer of porn (by revenue), followed by South Korea, Japan and then the US, far behind (producing like 10 times less than Japan). And if you count the revenue per capita then Germany, Brazil, Finland, Australia, the Czech Republic and about 20 other countries produce more porn than the US.
I'm curious where you get the idea that the US is the biggest producer of porn. Didn't you confuse it with corn? Yes, the US is the biggest producer of corn, above China, but porn?
"

If Japan makes 1 porn movie each year and sells 1 billion copies of it for $12345 per copy; then they might be the biggest producer of porn (by revenue) and the smallest producer of porn (by volume). If USA produces 1 billion porn movies each year and only sells 5 copies of them for $2 each; then they might be the smallest producer of porn (by revenue) and the largest producer of porn (by volume).

I guess what I'm saying is that maybe porn in the USA is just cheaper than it is in other parts of the world.
