For the first five minutes, we imagine getting paid to watch adult material would be rather interesting. After that point, however, we'd probably spend the bulk of our day quietly updating our resume. If we didn't, then we'd probably wind up as broken and sickened as Chinese civil servant Chunqi L...

If you're a adolescent living in the EU, consider your access to adult content coming to a rather abrupt end shortly.
