to what percentage of internet "content" is pornographic -- a term, of course, with its own fraught definitions, but one that is frequently invoked in "moral panic" characterizations of online information. Do folks here know of any statistical breakdowns of the internet focusing specifically on adult/taboo material?"
  I'd also be interested in statistical breakdowns of that sort. Cite-u-like gives an article that's of some interest, "Associations between pornography consumption and sexual practices among adolescents in Sweden," Häggström-Nordin, E. et al., published in _International Journal of STD & AIDS_, Vol. 16, No. 2, February 2005. I've only seen the abstract & don't know if the article examines the Net. 
  Cheers, Will
