From what i can remember Sex keeps on falling in revenue on the internet, i remember Brett posting about there were less searches for sex also (a few months back though)
You can read it here [emarketer.com]

Gambling is still huge though.

Big problem with online gambling -> many of the companies off shore are crooks.

So, sure there is money in it, but many, many people have driven revenue for the scum that run those sites, and never saw dime #1 from their work.

I think s*x would be the better bet, because you can deal with a US company, that is, if you are only interested in looking at a huge market with lots of $$ involved.

lazerzubb , Online Gambling used to be good , but not anymore....So many problems like shutting down of all the popular modes of deposit ( CC , Paypal) , an uncertain legal future , too much competition etc etc...

I believe it is dying slowly....the situation can change if the Government introduce Legalized Regulated Online Gambling Industry . I am sure it will be a big tax money generator for Uncle Sam
