The Blowjob Library

The porn industry has always had an eye out for the future. Being an early adopter when it comes to implementing emerging technologies, the adult entertainment industry has pioneered everything – from e-commerce to (virtual reality) streaming video. So let us consider the latest trend in the industry: BlowCast, a marketplace for user-reviewed, teledildonic-assisted oral sex.

The company was founded by webcam platform CamSoda, and is striving to corner the market with their virtual on-demand oral simulations. BlowCast allows its users to enter their library, where they are introduced to a selection of both amateur and professional cam girls. The blowjob library currently consists of 16 different women, each with three different signature offerings available for $1 each. The oral simulations come with evocative names like “All In,” “Firm & Fair,” “Earthquake,” “Nooner,” and “Bring’em thunder,” and range from five to 31 minutes.

Here is how it works. The cam models offer simulated blowjobs by giving one to a Kiiroo Pearl; a hacked vibrator that collects sensory data while the model fellates the device. This data is collected in the library where the user is invited to select a blowjob based on the model. Users can rank the blowjobs with a “thumbs up” and “thumbs down,” and cautiously spend their dollars based on other users’ reviews. On the customer-side of things, the user implements a smart “sleeve” which translates the sensory data replicates it in the sleeve. When connected to a video stream, it simulates the experience of receiving a blowjob from that particular model.

The Millennial Fantasy: Property Sex

According to Internet analytics company Alexa, PornHub is the 62nd most popular website in the world, outranking the New York Times, HBO and the Weather Channel. With nearly 100 categories available on the website, it seems there is something for everyone to get off. Last year a new fantasy was added to their list of content, and it puts ‘Open House’ in a brand new perspective.

Since the launch of the Property Sex channel in 2015, it’s currently ranked 10th most popular on Pornhub, with over 76.000 subscribers and 356 million views. According to PornHub, “Property Sex puts you behind the camera as you make dirty sex videos with the naughtiest of desperate tenants and with the most alluring real estate agents. Become a client and take a tour with some of the finest real estate agents who are willing to do just about anything for a sale. Or become the dirty landlord dealing with hot, young tenants who don’t want to face eviction.”

So basically the genre is the ultimate millennial dream: Being actually able to buy a house and do the real estate agent while you’re at it, but the real turn-on is the housing. The rise of Property Sex mirrors a dystopian landscape, in which a situation is presented that could potentially happen, but sadly never will.

AliceX: Better Than Your Girlfriend

Now that Internet porn has found its way into virtual reality, it should come as no surprise that in the beginning of this month a VR “girlfriend experience” had launched. Offering 24-hours companionship to anyone with an Internet connection and a VR headset, the website takes their users into a virtual room where they sit face to face with a real woman—in real time. Introducing AliceX.

First off, Alice is not a real person, but rather a modeling agency for Phone Sex Operators (PSO) with a webcam pointed to their faces. While live VR porn often presents itself as the impartial VR version of a camgirl, AliceX stands out as the first self-declared VR girlfriend experience (GFE). The streaming service introduces high-end escorts performing elaborate relationships with clients that often includes sex, but predominantly focuses on the fantasy of actually dating a woman.

Virtual girlfriends are nothing new to the Japanese games market; industry giants such as Nintendo and Konami have published dating simulation games on various platforms since the 1980’s. During the Tokyo Game Show earlier this month, a mannequin embedded with touch sensing software was presented, allowing players to fondle and interact with the augmented anime character through real-touch feedback. Unfortunately, after concerns that the game was too erotic, a touching ban was imposed to the figurine.

Even though future developments in augmented affairs are paving the way to news forms of intimacy, these may as well be implicated in it. Simultaneously, spending too much time building a relationship with virtual girls could blur the line between real love and pleasure, leading to social isolation. In our age of cold intimacies—a term coined by Eva Illouz, describing a new emotional culture in late capitalism—it is important to remember that these services are profitable entities that probably don’t really care whether you have a girlfriend our not.
