Pornography

According to a U.S. government study based on over 200,000 pieces of pornography, nearly three-quarters of all pornographic material is prepared for children under the age of 18.

Pornography in the U.S. amounts to over $8 billion dollars annually. In past years, the 7-Eleven Stores have posted a $30 million profit from pornographic materials. Children under 18 are the main purchasers of pornographic material in America.

Single copy sales in such stores as 7-Eleven account for 93% of all sales of Penthouse, and 40% of Playboy. There is hope! 7-Eleven Stores have just recently discontinued the sale of such magazines.
