Pornography and the Prophet: Islam, Feminism & the Myth of the “Willing Whore”

The United States is, by far, the world’s largest producer of online pornography, accounting for nearly 25% of all such material. Rounding out the list of the top five porn-producing countries are the United Kingdom (5.5%), Germany (4.9%), Brazil (4.8%) and France (4%). Of the top 15, a dozen are western countries, the three outliers being Japan (3.8%), India (3.2%) and Turkey (1.8%). In total, more than 60% of all online pornography features western performers.

One might think that, given the western provenance of most of this material, it is also being consumed by a predominantly western audience. This, however, is not the case. Some of the world’s top consumers of online pornographic material are, in fact, to be found in Muslim countries.
