Porn through history – how adult entertainment embraced new tech in the past

  • Printing press – this invention decreased the cost of books and increased literacy, causing the advent of erotica novel genre. Some of the most well-known authors’ erotics works of those times further promoted this, like Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.
  • Film cinematography – at the very dawn of film technology, in 1896, the first erotic movie Le Coucher de la Mariée was produced, marking the birth of pornography as we know it. This killed some previously popular forms of visual adult entertainment, such as “on-stage sexual exhibitions” (basically, theatrical porn performances).

  • 8mm cameras – the convenience and low price of this technology quickly made it a standard in the porn industry. Among the first adopters – Harrison Marks’ “glamour home movies” of 1958.
  • Betamax vs VHS – during the battle between the two formats in 1970s, pornographers chose to sell adult content on VHS tapes. Their works accounted for 50% of videotape sales in the US, allowing the VHS technology to win the war. Some 30 years later the same support facilitated the success of DVD technology.
  • Faster internet infrastructure – dial-up connection speed was hardly sufficient for high-quality adult entertainment. This created the demand for innovations in the area, resulting in the growth of bandwidth. Some adult content distributors even began to sell high-speed modems to their users at huge discounts – everything for you to watch a naughty film without lags!
  • Birth of streaming – the first practical internet video streaming service was developed by the Red Light District company. Take a wild guess what kind of content they provided! 😊

Unfortunately, we have to stop somewhere. We will not go into details on other examples of porn and technology evolving hand in hand (cable, Blue-Ray, private chat sessions, web cameras, etc.)

Future of adult entertainment – what to expect?

Seeing how porn pioneered in so many different technologies, it would be naive to assume that this industry is going to slow down now. The future of porn seems to be of interest for the general public, with all sorts of adult entertainment expos drawing more and more visitors. At the same time, certain newsbreakers like FOSTA/SESTA legislations raise concerns about what is to come for adult entertainment jobs and the industry as whole. So, what does fortune send?

  1. Security issues
    Let’s begin with the grim part so as to leave the sweets for the dessert. Cyber security of adult entertainment has been a running theme throughout 2018, and we would expect the issue to grow. Again, check out our infographics about porn-related malware and attacks for a detailed review.

    As to how to watch porn safely considering all the dangers, our general advice goes as follows:

    • Use trusted adult sites
    • Avoid clicking suspicious banners and links
    • Use antivirus software to protect your device
    • Use KeepSolid VPN Unlimited to stay anonymous and secure your sensitive data

  1. HD quality video
    Now, to more pleasant prospects. But what does the future of porn have to do with HD videos, you may ask, it’s long been among the features of adult sites! You’d be right, it has. And it has always been a premium, paid feature.

    Nowadays, however, HD production costs are going down and, probably more important, 4K TVs and monitors become more ubiquitous. Seeing how non-HD quality vids look really clumsily on those, it seems to us like a natural next step for pornographers to turn HD videos from premium into customary. 
  2. Virtual reality pornography
    The novelty of this topic is noticeably less debatable. Yes, we’re already seeing some crude attempts in this field in terms of both porn videos and video games. Yet so far they look more like an academic experiment rather than a satisfying, immersive, and interactive experience. The demand is obviously there, so we’re expecting many exciting VR porn news in 2019.Happy young woman using a virtual reality headset to watch porn safely thanks to KeepSolid VPN Unlimited
  3. Blockchain
    Now that’s the topic that has seen its share of attention this last year! For adult entertainment industry, it is the ultimate anonymity that matters most in this technology. We’re talking not only private transactions – there are whole adult marketplaces currently in development. They are supposed to combine all sorts of services and content into universal adult hubs (“porn hubs”, if you like 😉) 
  4. Artificial intelligence
    AI, bots, neural networks… The potential for these tech advancements in adult entertainment industry is limitless. Aside from the obvious applications such as AI actors (combined with VR for max immersion), some might be more subtle. For instance, imagine an AI assistant, like Siri or Cortana, but dedicated to one highly specific topic 😳 
  5. Robotics
    Sexdolls are no new concept. But with the modern developments in the robot industry, and considering our previous item, it doesn’t seem too fantastic to imagine the next stage of evolution – sexbots. One interesting point to make here is the problem of the uncanny valley. How long will it take to make something not only plausible, but also comforting? Time will tell.

  1. Drone filming
    This piece of technology rises adult cinematography to a whole new level, literally. There already exist a number of panoramic drone-shut porn movies, and we’d expect to see new interesting applications for these gadgets in the future.
