The Brief: Rule number 34 states that "if something exists, there is a porn of it."


Ruleย 34 is one in a set of “rules of the internet.” It suggests that the internet is so vast and full of pornography that a porn version will exist of any given thing. According to Urban Dictionary, “If there isn’t [a porn of something], there will be.” Rule 34 is a meme in that it is frequently joked about online. On sites such as 4chan, users draw attention to obscure porn versions of anything from anime to children’s cartoons to Fortnite.
