As the story goes, adult filmmakers preferred VHS to Betamax tapes and helped boost the former's sales, leading it to become the dominant video recording format for more than two decades. Whether you believe that legend or not, there is plenty of evidence to suggest that pornography has played a big role in shaping the media landscape over the past century.
