Adult firm shoots first iPhone porno…

iphone-mobile-porn-lgAdult video company, Pink Visual, has found a way to get porn onto the iPhone despite Apple’s restrictions on sexy apps. The company also claims to have shot the first porn scene using an iPhone 3GS.

Product Manager Kim Kysar said, “We figured this was the next logical step in our ongoing fascination with the iPhone…I think it’s safe to say we’re the most ‘iPhone-centric’ porn company around.”

Director Matt Morningwood, who shot the new scene for Pink Visual, said “If anything, it was too easy to shoot with the iPhone – I’m used to HD cameras, boom mics, and all sorts of other peripherals being part of the deal. The only thing that was difficult was holding the phone steady..”

Morningwood said that while the iPhone obviously didn’t yield the same sort of quality and clarity that one gets from a high-end HD camera, the footage has a rawness to it that “actually contributes to the overall strength of the scene and due to its small size, allows for it to cover certain angles and close ups a little better then a standard video camera”.

”The quality is pretty good for what it is,” Morningwood said. ”It definitely gives the scene a strong sense of realism.

Apple won’t permit pornographic content on its App Store, and even has a rating system for more adult content (which isn’t that adult). Let’s just observe that most people under 18 don’t have a credit card and it’s really pretty easy to make such content unavailable to minors through the App Store.

Kysar said that Pink Visual has no interest in ”playing games” with the App Store, and that promoting their iPhone-optimized content outside of the App Store offers the company both greater flexibility and better return on its investment.

”Don’t get me wrong; we’d love to be able to distribute our content through a ‘proper’ iPhone app,” Kysar said. ”But the rules are the rules, and that’s all entirely Apple’s call. Our focus is giving our iPhone-using fans the best viewing experience we can, not trying to influence Apple’s opinion concerning hardcore porn.”

Pink Visual is considering making iPhone footage a regular feature of its productions. “The nature of the footage definitely augments the immediacy and realness of the scene,” Kysar said. “Shooting content on the iPhone is a viable option, and something special we can add to the mix now and again.”

Wherever you stand on the debate about it, pornography is a gold mine. Arguably porn helped widen use of the internet. It’s also well-known that adult movies boosted the introduction of the VHS and, later, DVD formats. Indeed, some say it was the lack of such naughty content which caused the failure of the superior to VHS Betamax video technology.

So – are all the other smartphone vendors going to shift to offer adult content in a desperate attempt to compete with the iPhone? The Microsoft Adult Content shop, for example; or the Research In Motion ‘Travelling Executive’ adult service?

There’s some good reasons too – Google Trend in June 2008 noted that internet searches for iPhone porn had increased nearly fivefold over the preceeding six months. And the adult industry is a $13 billion industry.

Sure gives a new meaning to handheld…

Incidentally, thanks to the commenter below who drew our attention to this handy gadget, which we suspect will soon be in big demand as iPhone touch owners play with their new video cameras…
