The Canberra Times is casting an eye over the decline of the Canberra X-rated industry as fanciers of such material find it easier, and considerably less embarrassing to consume the vast sea of free material available on the internet.
[Robbie Swan] says the industry used to turn over $34million a year in ACT wholesale retail sales. It now scrapes about $2million.

Which isn’t to say the sex industry is doomed. One imagines hands on retail has some appeal for the gadgets and gizmos.
