Dot-xxx Domain Names Will Make It Easier To Not Find Porn

Amsterdam red-light district
Remember those dark, secret rooms in the back of video stores, with the beaded entrances and the weird dads with darting eyes? Well, the Internet just got one of those: the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers – basically the US government's IT guys – will soon allow businesses to use the .xxx domain. The new domain will be exclusively for websites that feature parenting tips and recipes.

Just kidding, it's going to be the seedy Red Light District of the web, full of hot, sexy porn. Of course, the domain will probably not host actual porn, just porn that links to other porn that prompts a pop-under window of porn that isn't actually porn, unless you think sad Croatian girls giving blowjobs in exchange for not-dying is porn.
