At first sight it may seem that porn and technology are two things that have no direct relationship between them, but we can tell you that porn has been the anchor of most technological supports. In this article we will analyze where in the advance of technology porn has been essential to lay its foundations and we promise you will be surprised.

The Video Home System (VHS)

In the 1970s two formats were struggling to establish themselves as the king of home players: Betamax and VHS. Although Sony’s Betamax offered higher quality recordings, a tape could only hold up to 60 minutes of footage while the VHS came in at 3 hours. Thanks to VHS, people could record their favorite movies, including pornographic ones, of course. Sony decided that it did not want films for the over-18s to be recorded on its tapes so the battle was won, effortlessly, by the VHS.

Thus, in the late 1970s, porn accounted for 50% of the VHS tapes sold in the United States, which meant that many people were buying players en masse. If we count on the fact that at that time the price of a VHS player was around 800 euros, we have the reason why the VHS reached every home on the planet.

The Internet Age

This one will be very easy: if in 2001, there were around 70,000 porn pages and today more than 26 million, nobody has the slightest doubt that porn laid the foundations for the development of the Internet. For 12% of Internet websites are pornographic and every second that passes there are approximately 28,528 users connected to the Internet watching youporn. Other studies conducted by major US universities show that 25% of all searches on search engines are related to pornography and 35% of all downloads from the Internet are pornographic.

It is obvious the influence of pornography in the technology industry in these times when it is already possible to see your favorite porn stars in virtual reality thanks to VR display devices, now also haptic technologies are being developed that would be something like virtual reality for the touch. With suits designed for this type of technology we can perceive virtual sensations, as the Huggies diaper brand did, with a belt that allowed men to feel the kicks of a baby during pregnancy. The future its here!

Since the beginning of this year new porn video apps have been emerging trying to adapt and copy the major success of TikTok social media app into the porn sector. Swipe porn was one of the first to establish and has been leading the way since then, proposing a multitude of short-term videos staging from well known pornstars to producers.

The timing couldn’t be better for this recent move as the new coronavirus pandemic recently obliged around 20% of the world’s population to be at home, with numbers being expected to increase in the coming weeks (or months). Whether you are used to watch porn alone in your mobile or together with your partner in a larger screens, short-term porn video apps like Swyp are here to stay and to attract more and more users.mobile porn video app

 

First TikTok porn video apps emerging

Tik.porn leaded the way already in February 2020, followed in a matter of days by Swipe.porn and weeks after by the well-established pornographic website, Youporn. The latest, owned by Mindgeek, the company responsible among others for Pornhub, created a mobile dedicated video app called SWYP, where users can scroll across multiple videos completely for free. Downside and when compared to Swipe.porn, for example, is that if you are willing to watch it in your desktop screen or you are not willing to install the app, you basically can’t use it. Swipe.porn, in the other hand let’s you ran a kind of web app, whether you are willing to watch it in mobile or in the comfort of your laptop or larger screen computer.

Perhaps that could be one reason why Swipe.porn has been leading the way recently taking the advantage that people are staying more time at home due to this new virus. Whether in a pause break while working or by enjoying some free time alone, the true is that these kind of apps are very user-friendly and quite addictive. You could easily spend some 10 minutes or more after your (supposed) work break.

Artificial Intelligence behind these new apps

The great reason for success of these apps could lie exactly in the fact that an artificial intelligence matches your most liked and viewed kind of videos, exactly similar to what TikTok proposes. By learning from your usage, the more you see, the more it will match and be accurate to your needs. And these new video apps adapted well to this secret into their business and are getting more attention from younger generations but also older ones who are eager to see more and more content delivered to their screens in high quality formats and for free.

It is quite probable that more and more video apps like these emerge in the coming future whether in the sex business or other industries that can take advantage and seduce users that are always willing to swipe and scroll their mobile screens like no other generations have done before. For now, despite of the current limited options, it is quite possible that at least in the pornographic film industry those three apps can lead the way and take advantage of their bold move into this new type of video content.

March 7, 2019

For those who are interested in knowing whether a visa is required to travel within the European Union, you should know that if you are looking to stay for a short period of time not exceeding three months in a six-month period in a European Union country, this may mean that you do need one according to the nationality of the person and the regulations of that country.

In any case, it must be borne in mind that citizens of certain countries who visit the European Union for a short time can benefit from a particular regulation that now exists of visas or accelerated procedures in which no visa is required.

What to take into account when buying gears?

December 14, 2018

A gearmotor is a speed reducer with a directly connected motor. A gearmotor does not use a bell and coupling adapter to mount the motor, the motor is in fact part of the speed reducer. A first advantage of the gearmotor compared to another combination of motor and gearbox is the length. Geared motors are compact in size. If you want to buy gears, read this article because it can help a lot.

A geared motor typically has the input gear of the gearbox mounted directly on the motor shaft. Gearmotors are mechanically simpler than other combinations of motors and gears. A gearmotor does not use couplings and has fewer bearings. As a result, installation is simplified and less maintenance is required. There are no belts to be tensioned or shaft alignment requirements. Some belt covers wear and require replacement; because a gear motor does not include these parts, the cost of installation and maintenance will be reduced.

Marc Márquez’s face changed when he learned that Jorge Lorenzo was going to be his new team-mate. The Cervera rider wanted (and let Honda know) Dani Pedrosa to continue at least one more year in Honda.

But Alberto Puig, the team manager, wanted to have two first swords in the garage and, knowing that the relationship between Lorenzo and Ducati was not going through its best and that the Italian team wanted to promote Andrea Dovizioso to the first team category, he went straight for the Mallorcan.

¿Puede Ferrari volver a ser lo que era?

October 25, 2018

Ferrari y Sebastian Vettel ya no tienen el título y lo saben. De hecho, sería muy sorprendente que Lewis Hamilton no ganara su quinto campeonato en México este fin de semana. Sin embargo, para Vettel y la Scuderia, presentar un desafío coherente y constructivo en las tres últimas carreras podría ser motivo de optimismo en una temporada en la que han dejado escapar el campeonato. Después de mostrar un gran ritmo en el Gran Premio de Estados Unidos, donde Kimi Räikkönen ganó y Vettel creyó que tenía la velocidad para hacer lo mismo, pero por su penalización en la parrilla y su efecto, Ferrari parece haber encontrado de nuevo su mojo mecánico.

Lo hicieron, admitió Vettel, al hacer retroceder la mayoría de las mejoras que han traído al coche desde Singapur. El alemán dijo que había ido por el camino equivocado, lo que le había costado caro, y que había agravado ese error al ser lento a la hora de identificar por qué había perdido su ventaja de ritmo. Al mismo tiempo, Mercedes extraía más de su coche cuando importaba.

Women increasingly interested in video games

October 19, 2018

Video games are not men’s things, much less children’s. A study by the Spanish Association of Video Games indicates that 38.9% of players are adults. As for the gender of the player, 32.8% of women play video games and in the case of men the figure rises to 45.3%. The majority of both sexes play regularly and have nothing to do with the stereotype of player: they have high school and even university studies, and they don’t only play dress up games.

Surprising is that there are more young mothers (between 18 and 29 years) who play video games than women without children. They see it as a way of approaching and creating links with the youngest members of the household. In any case, they spend between half an hour and an hour playing for all the members of the family – who knew a few years ago! Surveys also include Facebook games and mobile phones, however, everything points to platforms like Twitch (a platform that serves to see how a person plays in real time), women still prefer to be anonymous for fear of being harassed through comments.
