Of course
Of course, spammers are not stupid, they know that by now most people will not look at porn emails. If they can compose a message that appeals to as many people as possible then they will use that. Porn appeals mostly to males so there you have already lost 50% of the market

There is a solution
Actually I have been working on new email system that is anti-spam,you can actually prevent spam in first place with it.
Its cheap (software based) and works 99.9% ,best thing you can use only ONE email address.
For spammers or hackers to bypass it it would take way too much resources and time to make it worth.
Only problem I have is to protect idea before going public.
