The San Fernando Valley-based porn industry is up in arms over attempts by AIDS activists and even the state of California itself to make performers use condoms.

Boo-hoo.

The porn industry in China has virtually been put out of business by prudish government censors. Because with 1.3 billion people, we all know the Chinese know little about sex.

According to sify news:

Around 1,330 people received punishments for producing, duplicating, publishing, selling and spreading pornographic and vulgar information from December 2009 to October 2010, and among them five were given prison sentences of five years or more …

The Chinese being, well, smarter than Americans, we're sure they'll figure out a way to get and distribute porn. But the risk is for real.

Be thankful you're not a smut peddler in China.
