Electronic commerce offers immense opportunities to the producers of pornographic products and services. Although this sector generates significant revenues, it is almost invisible in academic literature on the information society and the digital economy, where it is both little discussed and undertheorized. We suggest that a social shaping of technology framework may help explain current moves by stakeholders in the industry to achieve legitimacy, and that this approach may assist future analyses of commercial dynamics in the online pornography sector.
