Visa, Mastercard and American Express have forced PornHub to delete millions of videos in an attempt to purge its site of unlawful content, but the site is far from the only porn website, and not even the most popular — so what happens next?

PornHub was accused in the pages of the New York Times opinion section of monetizing “child rapes, revenge pornography, spycam videos of women showering, racist and misogynist content, and footage of women being asphyxiated in plastic bags.” As a result of Pulitzer prize-winning opinion columnist Nicholas Kristof‘s article, numerous credit card companies began banning the use of their systems to make transactions on PornHub.
