Today in Porn, iPhone Edition

Thanks to the California Lawyer for the heads up. A few highlights:

“…now, thanks in large part to the iPhone’s video dexterity, short clips are becoming a staple of the mobile porn business. 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.'”

“‘It’s by far the porn-friendliest phone,’ says Devan Cypher, representative for San Francisco–based Sin City Entertainment. As evidence of the gadget’s rocketing popularity in California’s porn capital, the San Fernando Valley, numerous iPhone-specific porn sites have been launched in recent months.”

[Devan Cypher? Best porn industry rep name ever.]

“Indeed, the new iPhone may eventually propel mobile porn deeper into the sphere of interactivity. Blogger Jason Swifter has already imagined one such scenario. ‘I wish there was an application that allowed you to undress people by dragging your fingers across the screen and literally dragging it off,’ he wrote on iPhonematters.com.”

[Hope that works out for you, Jason. Because now that Time has run that quote of yours, I don’t foresee you dragging off any non-virtual ladies’ clothes anytime soon.]

Of course, this is not news ’round here. Almost three years ago, we noticed this line in the New York Times:

“Many of those in the business of pornography are not deterred by today’s technical difficulties in delivering cellphone video. Harvey Kaplan, director of mobile operations for xobile.com, a company in Charlotte, N.C., that sells two-minute hard-core video clips for download over phones, said he believed that thirst for sex-related content would drive the popularity of Internet-enabled phones. ‘People aren’t going to go out and buy a cellphone that streams video so they can watch a trailer of a Disney movie,’ he said. ‘But they will buy that phone if they have five minutes of quiet time’ viewing sexually explicit video.”

“Five minutes of quiet time” is my new favorite euphemism.

    I was using my highly compensated intellect to develop imaging software technology that allows scientists to interactively disassemble and reassemble virtual representations of actual DNA sequences on any computing platform via a browser. This would aid researchers in projecting mutations in viruses etc. from anywhere on the planet. Take that Bird Flu!

    Well sales were slooooow.

    So instead I licensed my new technology to Apple under the name i-ogle. With just a few tweaks on my part, it allows viewers to interactively undress the hottie of their choice by dragging their fingers across the screen. Just take a photo with your iphone, and one can engage in ejaculatory madness from anywhere on the planet. Jason was so onto something, and he didn’t even know it.

    I went from being highly compensated to rich rich rich with the stroke of a pen on a licensing agreement. Oh and by the way, I called my new company “Five Minutes of Quiet Time”.

    “Five Minutes of Quiet Time” would be a great name for a REM-tribute band!
