KANDAHAR, AFGHANISTAN—Following the fall of the Taliban, satellite dishes are springing up on rooftops across the staid city. Private homes, restaurants and guesthouses are tuning in to 170 channels from all over the world. Four of them show nothing but porn.

Despite their lurid names — one is called “100 percent hardcore” — the porn channels are mild by Western standards, showing topless women gyrating around poles or reclining languorously as telephone numbers for sex chat-lines and mail-order videos scroll across the screen.

Abdul Wasi runs one of the many satellite television shops that have emerged in Kandahar since the Taliban left.

“I’ve been in business a month, and I have sold nearly 400 dishes,” Wasi said. “My shop is always busy. Everybody wants to watch boobies, uh, I mean satellite television.”

A shopper in the store added, “We now no longer need to stare at goat ass and wonder. We can now look and know.”
