    Just a heads up..

    Not sure if I am posting this in the right section of the forum, but to me I feel like this a concern regarding to myself, which is a bit selfish..I know but I want to understand something.

    Anyways..I've been wondering..why has pornography often been associated with viruses, bugs, malware, etc, etc and the list goes on with all the bad things they contain..

    I mean..I will be honest here, and I'm sorry if this offends anybody, but I for one am not ashamed to admit I like to watch pornography out of pleasure everyone in a while, yet here and again I hear often saying "oh wow..your computer sure is slow..I bet you downloaded so much porno that you barely have any room", etc and stuff like that...

    But thing is..there are plenty of reliable websites according to WOT (Web of Trust) so why do people download pornography, if they can just watch it directly?

    Again, if any of this stuff offends, I'm sorry but I just want to try and understand this association of viruses and hacking with this.
