Porn s profits are under assault, and piracy and a weak economy have forced DVD sales down 40% in the last year. In fact, porn is just another branch of the publishing industry, facing the same hurdles as books, magazines, and ''old media.'' CNBC s Melissa Lee takes viewers inside the Porn industry for your first, all-access look at the big budgets, the small players, the super-stars, and the one issue that could bring the adult industry to its knees. DVD includes more than 30 minutes of bonus material, including extended interviews with adult industry star Sasha Grey, Vivid Entertainment CEO, Steven Hirsch, and Digital Playground s, Jesse Jane.
