Porn Stars Can Make You Understand Net Neutrality

Net Neutrality talk is all over the place these days.  But what is it?  What does it mean for you?

Look, we know you see white men in a suit talking about it all the time, and you can't be helped but fall asleep when they open their mouth.  You have an idea that it is important, but you just don't have the patience to stay awake long enough.

Luckily for you, somebody, more specifically Funny or Die, has recruited some people you can pay attention to, porn stars.  They will explain net neutrality to you, and why you should care.

Hint: Because porn.

Funny or Die got adult film actresses Alex Chance, Mercedes Carrera, and Nadia Styles to break down President Obama's net neutrality proposal. The future of open internet has significant implications for the adult entertainment industry, after all. All of that porn you're streaming on those long, lonely nights in your bedroom actually takes a lot of bandwidth. That those videos stream so smoothly is a miracle of modern connectivity. But if it was up to your ISP, your connection might get throttled unless you pay for faster speeds. Or an ISP might force porn websites to pay big to make their packets travel fast enough to make streaming porn feasible.

So do your part, okay?  Think of all those porn star's sad faces!
