'The iPhone's Next Frontier: Porn

Apple may be golden because of the iPhone, but the soon-to-be-updated device is also increasingly the source of forbidden fruit. Steve Jobs' company is keeping a civil, if embarrassed, silence on one of the potentially most lucrative and controversial uses of its handheld jewel: porn.
The technological feats of the 3G iPhone are key to the coming pornucopia. To date, mobile porn has consisted largely of still images, racy text services and "moan tones," which are sultry-sounding ringtones. In Europe there is an active market for video chatting; customers pay on average $50 a month to exchange dirty messages with actresses. But now, thanks in large part to the iPhone's video dexterity, short clips are becoming a staple of the mobile porn businesss. The speed promised by the iPhone 2.0 is much anticipated.

Google Trends, which measures Web buzz, shows a sharp increase over the past year in the popularity of the term "iPhone porn." ' * Source http://www.time.com/time/businesss/article/0,8599,1815933,00.html

'Vivid, a leading adult entertainment company based in Los Angeles, says that 50% of its mobile browser traffic now comes from iPhones. The company expects that to grow with the release of Apple's new model on July 11. Vivid CEO Steve Hirsch told TIME that his company will launch what it calls a "supersite" this summer to capitalize on the new iPhone. Vivid is investing hundreds of thousands of dollars in the new supersite, Hirsch says.

Penthouse is investing tens of millions in digital R&D, says its CEO, Marc
Bell. "The iPhone is a beautiful medium," Bell says. The company, which Bell
says partners with 60 carriers in 30 countries, now owns an array of social
networks under the "Friendfinder" banner. It plans a new portal pegged to the iPhone launch and new offerings that Bell boasts are unlike anything on the market. "We're planning a whole new level of interactivity," says Bell.

Digital Playground, a high-end adult production company based in Van Nuys, California, is launching a new portal that will automatically adjust to the iPhone's browser. The company, which has partnerships with phone networks in 48 countries, according to founder Ali Joone, already takes in about $50 million in revenue annually. Joone says he is editing some videos to include more close-ups to suit the iPhone screen. "In your palm, the iPhone is more cinematic than other devices," Joone says.

Pink Visual, also based in Van Nuys, will likewise launch a new portal aimed
at the 3G iPhone this summer. The company's first iPhone site has been
attracting 3,000 new visitors a day. It was designed specifically for Apple's
device: the videos are re-sized to fit its horizontal screen when the device
is turned sideways. An icon can be downloaded to an iPhone's home screen, says spokesperson Kate Sylvan, enabling one-click access to porn clips on the phone. In order not to offend Apple's sensibilities, Sylvan says,
Pink Visual plans to avoid linking its new marketing campaign to Apple's own ads for the iPhone. Sylvan says many porn consumers access adult materials on their iPhones while traveling, because they're wary of using company-issued laptops or public computers to access adult entertainment.

I have found several sites which rate these new iPhone providers. I'd like to see more people involved in actually rating their content and quality,

Serious answer: porn has often led the way and paid for new technologies. VHS, DVD, and the Internet, all got huge boosts from it.

I've known several people who've become multi-millionaires in almost no time with even simply converting or cataloguing porn. That's clerical work, really. Sometimes I have to wonder why the rest of us are too silly / prudish to make money with it !

Anyway, yes I think that as other phones get large screens and become popular, there will be an explosion of porn apps (not just sites). The iPhone won't be part of it, if Apple has their say, though.

if the general public weren't too prudish, then there wouldn't be a need for it in the first place.
