The days of adult book stores and novelty shops are just that. A novelty.
Unlike traditional retail, people tend to make adult entertainment product purchases online rather than off. The two main reasons for this are privacy and format.
Adult entertainment products for the most part are digital. Pornographic movies, adult sex games, etc. all can but upload and download via Internet and with the sheer size of the online sex game business and the recent growth behind it secure servers for credit card transactions are more important than ever before.
The best way to make adult sites more secure as with any site: Add HTTPS.
Without secure online marketing the adult entertainment industry (something that seemingly is everlasting online) will collapse as the Internet is it’s primary vessel of doing business. WIRED covered the effects of the lack of security on the porn industry early this month but we spoke with our own SEO consultant on the issue. Why an SEO consultant you ask?
Because even Google has gotten involved…
“An HTTPS server does not just offer a sercurity benefit. According to Google, HTTPS is now a ranking signal that they look at so it is also considered good SEO (search engine optimization) for an adult website to use HTTPS servers,” says Nick Fiorini, an Internet marketer who offers SEO consulting in Rochester New York. Mr. Fiorini has worked for adult entertainment companies in the past as a marketing manager and has provided SEO services for several adult websites (including this one). He believes this is the right decision for Google to protect and promote safer practices for it’s visitors. “This is a smart move on Google’s part to get ecommerce websites to make the switch from HTTP servers to HTTPS ones. What better way to entice these companies than offering ranking benefits on top of the added security?”
HTTPS has some presence in the online porn industry. Cam sites have actually been the first to adapt to the technology and change for a much more secure environment which is quite important when connecting viewers with live erotic performances, both use it, for understandable reasons.
As virtual sex entertainment continues to grow so will business transactions and the very serious risk of financial security and privacy protection failings.
With all the craze from Overwatch fan made porn in the past it was only a matter of time…
Brazzer’s has entered their “porn parody lab” and has come out with this concoction: A live Overwatch porn parody called Oversnatch. If video game characters engaged in sex acts is your thing then this is something you probably would like to check out.
Japanese game developer M2 was caught showing off a bizarre virtual reality game at Tokyo Game Show 2016.
The game is a sex simulator that combines virtual visuals with real life sensations from touch.
Capacitive sensors on a mannequin dressed up like Isla from Plastic Memories is how this is achieved. The playtesters were then given the chance to have Isla “react” to their touches and the results are pretty amazing. At one point staff had to warn visitors from excessive touching out of fear that damage may incur.
The technology used is called Emote, which translates real life movement into the digital world allowing players to feel like they are actually interacting with the characters within the game.
Mass Effect is a game series that is well known to RPG fans around the globe.
It caused some controversy when players got their first glimpse of steamy (but classy) sex scenes that were a result of a player successfully starting a relationship between Commander Shepard and another squadmate.
Fast forward to Mass Effect 3 where one of the squadmates that Commander Shepard can romance is Tali, the female alien who wears a hazmat suit to protect against disease.
Needless to say, the sex scene with Tali sucked and one fan aimed to correct that. Above is that video.
You wouldn’t think a former porn star who is currently using virtual reality technology to promote her tour would utter those words but when asked in a CNBC interview about VR porn that is how Sasha Grey responded.
Recently, Grey filmed her DJ tour of North and South America using the Samsung Gear 360 VR camera. However, she doesn’t believe VR is a game changer for the adult film industry.
PC sex mods have made waves in gaming news media in the past. GTA San Andreas is a perfect example. Although, not a true mod because it was code that the developers left in the game to be discovered later but not part of the original game either unless the player had modding knowledge/programming knowledge.
Nothing has come close in the world of PC sex mod fame that Skyrim’s sex mod community…until now.
The 4th installment of the award winning game series Sims 4 has undergone the “sex mod treatment” from the devilishly clever pc sex sim mod community and has created some hot, steamy sims sex action.

RealDoll is celebrating it’s 20th anniversary next year by releasing a robotic head. Matt McMullen, CEO of RealDoll, explained the release:
“We are building an A.I. system which can either be connected to a robotic doll OR experienced in a VR environment. I think the sex industry is headed for the integration of a LOT of new technology. A.I. and VR, to name a couple. Teledildonics as well.”
RealDoll’s target release date for the A.I. is sometime in the next six months and the robotic head should be ready by the end of next year (2017).
Not much has been heard from RealDoll in the last few years so this is a significant step forward with the company. Depending on how well their A.I. system works out, RealDoll could be the leader of A.I. sex bots in the near future.

Dead or ALive Xtreme 3 came out earlier this year in Japan and the rest of Asia and features some great graphics and animations. The biggest feature that is making wave in North America (and probably is an obstacle for the game being brought here) is the “groping simulator” feature that has been added.
Essential the player can utilize a piece of flying tech to use as a surrogate for groping various game characters from the series. Although beach volleyball has always been a centralized theme for the series this new addition has made DOA Xtreme 3 a groping simulator to many people.
Some people has gone so far as to call DOA Xtreme 3 a sex game which seems a little extreme as sex games typically feature sex and DOA Xtreme 3 does not. Either way, the new groping feature has put the spotlight on the DOA series for the same reasons the spotlight was originally on the game when it debuted on Xbox back in 2003.
To see DOA Xtreme 3’s groping feature in action check the video below:
