Teletext is a computer informational system that works via television to transmit data in a unique way.
Through pages of text and simple geometric shapes from mosaic blocks, images and information can be transmitted, thus taking the form of a simple media-based telecommunications device.
It wasn’t long before adult entertainment companies like phone sex lines and video porn started popping up in teletexts when teletext first came out in the UK back in the early 1970s.
And so, teletext porn was born.
Now, being that teletext is 7-bit (7,175 bits per second per used lines) there wasn’t a whole lot to work with as far as graphics go. Images were simple but the idea, for the most part, could be conveyed.
Teletext is one more way technology has shaped the world of adult entertainment.
