The Best-Selling Adult DVDs of All Time

The Best Selling Adult DVDs

The Adult Entertainment industry, although taboo in nature, is serious business. Every year, the top trade publication for the adult industry, the Adult Video Network (AVN), holds the Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas, which is touted as the industry’s largest event worldwide. How big is the adult entertainment industry? The most recent numbers from AVN's 2006 report show industry-wide sales to exceed $12.92 billion, although more conservative estimates place this number significantly lower.

The Adult Entertainment industry, although taboo in nature, is serious business. Every year, the top trade publication for the adult industry, the Adult Video Network (AVN), holds the Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas, which is touted as the industry’s largest event worldwide. How big is the adult entertainment industry? The most recent numbers from AVN's 2006 report show industry-wide sales to exceed $12.92 billion, although more conservative estimates place this number significantly lower.

The biggest chunk of the industry - video sales and rentals - accounts for almost 30% of the pie, or $3.62 billion, according to AVN. And it's a business that, like it or not, influences other businesses. Remember the format wars between VHS and Betamax or, more recently, Blu-Ray and HD DVD? The adult entertainment industry, many believe, determined the winners.

So what sells? Adult DVD Empire is the largest online retailer of adult entertainment and it has compiled a list of its all-time best-selling adult DVDs. Click ahead to see the list...
