An essay on how YouTube is, in many ways, better than porn:

By keeping obscenity in check, YouTube teems with video of near infinite variety, stuff that thrives when pornography, which is hard to contain once it takes root, has been banished. […] YouTube’s dizzying diversity, in fact, now makes online porn sites that purport to cater to a broad range of tastes look only obsessive and redundant.

There is definitely a subculture of softcore running rampant on YouTube. It’s strange. If you’re not a rabid voyeur, YouTube can seem completely innocent.

I spent about an hour on Thursday watching clips from Garfield and Friends, a cartoon from my childhood I have oddly fond memories of. It was innocent and nostalgic.

And just around the corner, one search term away: boobs.
