Porn 3.0 – Essential Features of The Next Generation

Porn 2.0 was big when the idea first came out. The idea of user generated content caught on like nothing else, similar to what happened with Web 2.0. Back then, porn was only static, controlled by the industry itself and there was almost no true amateur porn. It wasn’t until social media and online video platforms came out that everyone realised that they could be performers as well, they could have followers and fans. But now, after a decade or so of Porn 2.0 becoming mainstream, Porn 3.0 is looming on the horizon, and we’ve got everything you need to know about the next generation of porn!

Porn 2.0 – What was it?

Porn now pretty much adopted the exact set of features that Web 2.0 was proposed with. While not a technical upgrade peruse, it was simply a term given to the shift from static websites to user generated content, interoperability and increased ease of use. Porn 2.0 was in fact a subset, influenced by the changing mindsets around the internet and what it’s capable of. The whole idea of Web 2.0 has become so embedded in daily life that not all of us actually remember what the internet, and by extension, online porn was like before this time. Some of the features or services that came up were:

Photo Hosting and Communities

Sites like Flickr, Imgur, Picasa and more allowed users to share photographs of pretty much anything they took over the internet, and allowed not only amateur photographers and designers to flourish, but also amateur couples to share their bedroom experiences.

Social Networks

Networks like Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter caused an explosion of sharing all over the world, both of adult and non-adult content. This allowed users to create online personas for all to see, and also connected them to the other content they uploaded, either as photos or videos. They also allowed users to create niche communities or sections that catered to a very specific set of people.

Blogging

The buzzword these days was introduced around the time Web 2.0 came out. Along with giving writers, poets and more the opportunity to express themselves, erotica writers and sex blogs came into existence.

Video Communities and Platforms

YouTube, Vimeo, Metacafe and more were websites that truly connected the world together. You could now see the work of a filmmaker from across the world and watch content from just about any place on the globe, it was the dawn of a new era indeed. So many stars got noticed from sites like YouTube and are now part of the mainstream music and film industry, and this is also exactly what the porn industry did. All the sites we regularly browse today, like YouPorn, PornHub, Xvideos and more came out only because of the advent of video communities and platforms. We pretty much owe the ease of accessible free porn today to Web 2.0’s innovations.

Porn 3.0 – Looking Ahead

So what’s next for the world of porn? The last generation was mostly about getting people into the limelight and giving them the power to express themselves, what is this generation going to be all about? We’ve got an inkling of what it could be, and boy does it look awesome. Unlike last generation’s user focus, the next generation of porn is all about an experience. The idea is to really make you part of the film, and not remain a viewer. Here’s some of the trends and features emerging that will be a big part of porn in the future.

Virtual Reality

We’ve always dreamed of faraway worlds, space exploration and whatnot. While we may not get to visit them in person anytime soon, there’s nothing stopping designers from creating video games and movies that take you there. But we’re still just staring at a screen. What if you could be IN it? What if you’re not restricted by field of view and could look where you want, go where you want and see things as if they were in front of you? That’s what virtual reality is bringing in.

It has obvious usage in porn as well, no more pseudo being-there experiences like POV porn, you could be the performer or be a spectator watching the action in any way you like. You could be in a scene with your favourite porn star. It’s not just a fantasy, there actually is VR porn available, and with the Oculus Rift VR headset coming out soon for 600$, it’s not going to be much longer for the next iterations to get more affordable.

Connected Peripherals

Being in the experience is one thing, but actually touching and feeling something is another. Sure, you have Flesh lights and they’re pretty cool by themselves, but in a VR experience, that Flesh light could enhance the experience even further. All of these working in tandem will make the next generation of porn even more awesome!

Brain-Computer Interfaces

Now this might sound something straight out of Star Trek, but there are technologies being developed that would allow users to completely ditch traditional input devices like mice, keyboard, controllers and more. You could just control anything by thinking about it, and as part of virtual reality, you could create worlds and experiences unique to yourself.

Connected Experiences

Cam models today are just visible on screen and there’s no other interaction apart from what you’d usually get from a video chat, but in the future, combined with connected peripherals, cam girls could probably help you masturbate by controlling devices from anywhere in the world. Enhanced pleasure? Yes please!

Artificial Intelligence and Robots

Now the closest you can get to a companion is a sex doll, which frankly, isn’t anything worth writing about. But with increasing artificial intelligence and more realistic robots, there might be a time when you can actually have a companion for those times alone which actually looks and acts like your favourite pornstar. It may be a while for this to come true, but we’ll be damned if people aren’t working on it already!

How to start your own Netflix of Porn?

Netflix, the popular American entertainment company was founded in 1997. Twenty years is more than a reasonable time period for assessing the performance any subscription based video on demand website. No doubt, Netflix has lived up to the expectations of entertainment industry. In the context of adult entertainment industry, are there any subscription based video streaming sites that attained the stature of Netflix?  One prominent adult entertainment website is Adult Rental which streams more than 80000 full length sex movies. Other prominent examples of adult membership websites are Brazzers, NaughtyAmerica, RealityKings, Faketaxi etc. Barring these few subscription based sites, many adult membership sites end up being crashing disappointments.

7.-Rosie-Jones

Web developers’ caveats aside, the truth of starting an adult site resonates deeply for anyone whose objective is enriched by the lucrative nature of porn industry. The talking point is how to start my own porn company. Whether you are a solo performer or a production studio, if you are looking to start an adult membership site, purchase xMember– an adult Content Management turnkey software.

Why xMember? – A question every adult webmaster would want to know an answer to. In a competitive industry with multiple alternatives for building adult subscription websites, what justifies selecting xMember over the other turnkey scripts?

Subscription Based Membership

xMember gives you multiple options to operate a subscription based membership system for users. You can set as many plans and as many price points as possible. As the administrator of your adult tube site, you can grant access privileges to users according to their plans and let them download videos.

Manage Model Directories

You can ban those models who do not comply with your rules. Some models try to promote their own webcam sites. You can let them promote by asking them pay a certain commission. Some models fail to upload their profile pictures. You can send personal messages to models and tell them to upload their profile pictures. You can monitor their activities.

Complete CMS

While there are many turnkey software available, not every turnkey software enjoys the comforts of being a CMS. CMS stands for Content Management System. A content management system allows you to manage all the digital content. Right from letting you edit all the text to image banners, the content of static pages and privacy policy can also be edited.

A Content Management System (CMS) comprises Content Management Application (CMA) and Content Delivery Application (CDA). By using CMA, users can modify and remove content from a website. For instance, models can edit their profiles and upload new profile pictures. All such modifications do not require the intervention of adult webmasters. On the other hand, CDA does the job of collating information and updating the same on adult websites. There are many advantages – For instance, there is no need to write lengthy code from scratch to grant permissions to users. There are special provisions in CMS to grant permissions to users. Apart from permission management, CMS helps you create uniform looking graphical interface.

Highly Secured Platform

We often witness the scaffoldings of cyber-attacks. However, xMember’s reputation, verging on alert systems has remained firmly intact. xMember has got all the capabilities to tackle malicious attacks of any magnitude. xMember has various built-in modules that hinge on proactive mechanisms to prevent malicious injections

Amazon S3 Integration

S3 stands for “Simple Storage Services”. As a matter of fact, you can use S3 to store and retrieve data such as documents, images, files etc., at any point of time. xMember is compatible with Amazon S3. To host your media files, you are at liberty to avail Amazon S3 services. If you want to host them on your server, you are at complete liberty to do so. Amazon S3 services are unflappable and affordable. Moreover, the cloud storage is highly scalable. I would therefore advise against hosting media files on your server.

Payment Gateways

digital-payments

PayPal does not support adult entertainment platforms. However, this fact should not deter you from starting an adult site. Prominent payment gateway CCBill is available as a built-in payment gateway. In addition to CCBill, you can have more than 20 payment gateways such as ePoch, Verotel, ePay etc., as add-ons.

Multiple Video Formats

Users showcase their love for their favorite models by uploading a wide range of videos. Unfortunately, all the videos do not have the same format. Some videos have AVI format. Some videos have MPEG extension. This non-uniformity can cause troubles. You need not worry as xMember allows users to upload videos in AVI, WMV, QuickTime, DIVX, MPEG, 3GP, FLV etc. xMember then converts them into a uniform format in the background.

Integrated ecommerce Store

Models can create their own dedicated ecommerce stores and sell not only digital products but also physical products. Right from selling clothes and toys to digital products such as Snapchat accounts and personal video clips, models can sell every possible adult accessory.

 

Trail vs VIP Membership

Growth hacking features that enhance subscriptions are in abundance in xMember. This ‘Trail vs VIP Membership’ feature allows customers to explore your adult membership site for 2 days. Of course, the users shall be granted limited privileges. They can be then converted into VIP members. Many leading turnkey software scripts do not have this feature. Quite intentionally, Adent.io has combined this feature with various growth hacking plugins. Believe me, it is more than a BOMB!

Fully Responsive Website

In many ways, technology has given adult entertainment industry a remarkable image. Earlier, many adult entertainment ventures used to have separate websites for mobiles, tablets, laptops etc. Thanks to the emergence of Bootstrap technology, adult entertainment ventures can just create only one website which can be accessed on mobile phones, tablets and desktops. The beauty of pixel perfection of adult websites built by using Bootstrap technology resonates deeply with every set of target audience.

Easily Customizable

Today, we face the commodification of the word ‘customization’. It is being misused. To be upfront, this word is being abused by many adult webmasters. Something which is customizable can be modified according to the requirements of customers. Many turnkey software available in the market are not customizable. There are several limitations and I am aghast at the deadly silence in the section of experts of adult entertainment intelligentsia who do not give a hoot about disclosing this truth.

xMember is customizable as it is built with MEAN Stack. By the way, MEAN stands for MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS and NodeJS. You need not be an expert to customize the product as per your requirements. You just require a little bit of expertise to make changes to the neatly written code. If you have any doubts, you can refer to the documentation. Documentation should ideally resolve most of your doubts. If you have any queries, you can always reach out to the support staff of Adent.io

Scalable Architecture

xMember is capable of handling huge traffic. It is horizontally scalable as it is built on a distributed architecture. In other words, it can operate on multiple servers. To cut the long story short, encoding is done on a different server while streaming is done from a Content Delivery Network. Technical caveats aside, what it essentially means for you is that xMember is fully scalable.

Monetization Options

One of the important yardsticks of a fully operational membership turnkey software is the number of monetization options. xMember is loaded with several monetization options such as ads, banners, eCommerce store etc. Some of the monetization opportunities are selling digital products such as Snapchat accounts, Instagram accounts etc., through eCommerce store.  In addition to setting different membership levels and pricing schemes, there are several custom modules such as

  • A dedicated growth hacking plugin to boost VIP sales
  • Pay per Minute phone calls (only voice)
  • Pay per minute Live webcam private shows (based on tokens)
  • Tips to solo performers
  • Pay per Text chat

 

All the above mentioned features clearly indicate that xMember is a winner. If you have any doubts or concerns, feel free to drop a line or two in the comments section. I shall reply in a day or two. Keep watching this space for insights on adult entertainment industry. My best wishes are with you and your adult membership site. Start your own Netflix of porn today. Cheers!
