The Australian porn scene is struggling.

Post-Pornhub, there's simply less demand — for paid content, for new content. But if history has proven anything, it's that pornography finds a way.

We spoke to some of Australia's premier porn performers and producers. They're struggling, they're doing it tough, but they're using technology (and their innate sense of hustle) in a last gasp fight for survival.

As far as accidental comedy goes, few things beat watching a PG-rated Disney film on a site with the ads for penis enlargement guides and "Tinder for MILFs". And while I didn't specifically seek out Pornhub or 2014's animated adventure Big Hero 6 today, both came into view thanks to the Reddit community r/FullMoviesOnPornhub.

Women account for around 26 per cent of visitors to Pornhub, according to the site's latest insights. That's enough for a noticeable drop in traffic to be evident during the Women's March in January.

But how does the way women access porn differ to their male counterparts? Other than a standout statistic being women are far less likely to use Internet Explorer (c'mon, guys) the results of Pornhub's "Women and Technology" survey reveals Apple products are the tech of choice for the ladies.

A new bill in South Carolina would make it illegal for anyone in the state to sell a computer, tablet, or smartphone without a porn filter. But the bill's sponsors aren't entirely unreasonable men. You can petition to buy a computer without a porn filter — but it will cost Americans $US20.

A Victorian man has been fined $1000 after being caught driving along a freeway watching pornography on his smartphone.

On Friday, many news sources reported that RCN Boston mistakenly broadcast a half hour of hardcore pornography during the night on CNN. If we look a little deeper, we can see this may not be true. The International Business Times first reported the story based on a series of tweets from one account that is now private. Mashable also wrote up the story, using a tweet from someone else, although it appears to be a screenshot taken from the original poster. (We’ve reached out to ask.)

OK, this is getting out of hand. Since the source for Yahoo's neural network for porn was released, it's been repurposed a few times. First, someone made it pump out Giger-esque images of genitalia of its own creation and now, it's been transformed into a video editor than can not only classify types of porn within a clip, but create and export snippets, ready for, uh, consumption. NSFW warning!

While almost nobody needs a panini press that can sign into Twitter, the powers that be clearly believe otherwise, adding internet connectivity to many of the pleasantly dumb devices that used to populate our homes. This raises a number of obvious security concerns and one equally serious, but far less discussed issue: Porn on everything, always.
