Reminds me the thinking is that porn was behind the growth of VHS.

Any advance on ads, porn ..... ?

If you were 11-15 and male during the rise of the video cassette recorder, the main reason to hassle parents to invest in the new tech was more likely to be the fake underground Horror flicks.

Which had the almost wholesome benefit of being actually far tamer than young imaginations perceived they might be.
