Hotel Porn Doesn’t Bring In That Much Money

According to Tom Minnery, senior vice president of government and public policy at Focus on the Family, pornography is “especially dangerous in hotels because it can become addictive and create a sexualized climate that puts men, women and children at risk.” What’s interesting though is that movie rental revenues averaged $16.51 per room per month for the first quarter of 2008, according to LodgeNet Interactive, a company that provides on-demand TV, movie, and Internet services to nearly 2 million hotel rooms, including those owned by Marriot. That money isn’t just from the porn that’s being watched, but it’s also from rentals of legitimate Hollywood movies and TV shows. Basically, it’s probable that only one porn video is played each month in the average hotel room, which doesn’t seem like a whole lot. But Focus on the Family and other advocacy groups that want to get rid of hotel porn might get their way. Hotels only make around $1.65 per room per month in movie rental fees, and they might decide to discontinue offering the service. But then what will traveling salesman do to keep themselves busy at night? [The Smart Set]
