Originally from Juneau, Alaska, Bill Asher, is the Co-Chairman and Co-Owner of Vivid Entertainment, an adult film production company. Before Vivid, Bill Asher founded Califa Entertainment, through which he brought hardcore porn to cable television for the first time ever.

Porn has come a long way since early humans sculpted the four-inch Venus of Willendorf, the earliest depiction of the naked body known to man. It is estimated that the statue dates as far back as 25,000 years ago. Over the centuries, civilizations such as the Greeks and Romans put their own twists on public displays of sex, while ancient texts like Kama Sutra redefined sensual living. Real growth, however, didn’t start until the late 19th century.

When film was invented, Thomas Edison’s 1896 film The Kiss was the first commercially available film that showed two people kissing. In the early 1900s, stag films that depicted raw sexuality were shot and distributed, albeit illegally. Despite the legal consequences of distributing such material, these films were very popular.

In 1951, the X-rating system was launched. Two years later, Playboy Magazine was founded, offering soft sexual content to the mainstream market. In 1966, Lasse Braun began filming and distributing short underground sex films. Despite the legal troubles he faced, his films were very popular in the United States and Europe.

In 1969, Denmark became the first country to legalize porn. In 1973, the US Supreme Court in Miller v. California redefined obscenity, reducing the number of prosecutions of porn producers. In 1976, the company JVC established VHC, bringing VCR video technology to households across the country. Two years later, 75 percent of all VCR tapes sold were pornographic.

In 1991, the Internet went live. The first porn site was established three years later.

In 1999, Califa Entertainment launched the Hot Network, the first hardcore porn channel. Years later, major cable companies would follow suit.

Today, porn is available across multiple platforms, including television and online, and is consumed by a global audience.
