The Internet History Podcast claims:

When photography was developed in the 18th century, photographic commerce was mostly about selling people portraits of themselves or their loved ones—at least, initially. What really kicked off an industry for photographs was the marketing of pictures of other people… in the nude.

Is there any evidence showing that the last statement is true?
