I constantly see people and articles referencing how porn drove the adoption of the Internet, VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray, Mobile, insert your technology of choice, etc.

Now I'm not discounting he popularity of "adult entertainment" on those mediums but I've never seen anyone actually back up such assertions with actual numbers.

Are there actual statistics or studies to back up the claim that adoption of technologies such as the Internet and DVD were speed up by the availability of pornography on those mediums?
