How Adult Content Entertainment Shaped the Digital platform
The adult entertainment business and technology may seem unusual bedfellows at first. Still, the two have a long and fruitful connection, despite an apparent mismatch between the sexual and the technological. For decades, the adult entertainment sector has been a surprising driver of technological adoption.
Although adult content producers weren’t the first to experiment with these new technologies, they were often the first to use them for their purposes. Some of these ideas would have been lost forever if the industry hadn’t pushed hard enough, and contemporary life might have been less exciting without them.
Here are a few examples of the adult entertainment industry’s contributions to the mainstream acceptance of technology.
Because of its tiny size compared to pricey 12-inch LaserDiscs, DVDs became the following favorite home video format when home video transitioned to digital. The video quality improved significantly over the VCD format. DVDs seemed ideal for adult content since they could easily divide scenes into parts and even enable extra content like deleted scenes and various camera views. For adult entertainment lovers, this brought an unparalleled level of involvement.
Internet access at a high speed
If you don’t remember what dial-up internet was like, know that it was designed to see how patient you could be. Line by line, websites were loaded. We are now irritated if a web page takes more than 3 seconds to load. If a page loaded in under five seconds, you’d give yourself a high-five in the old days.
It took so long to load a web page that you forgot what web page you were attempting to load. In the 1990s, Penthouse had a brilliant idea. They say that although the internet was rapidly becoming a need, adult entertainment would struggle to find a home as long as the typical user’s internet connection remained poor.
It was a game-changer for the user experience since it allowed web developers to be significantly more ambitious with the websites they created. You wouldn’t be able to add video, graphic material, or interactive aspects to your marketing efforts without high-speed internet.
Real-Time Chat and Live Streaming
Using emojis in online communication has become more frequent than speaking face-to-face, but that isn’t the case. A new trend in adult entertainment was being emulated. Adult content creators like RayRay successfully attracted a sufficient number of users to ensure the viability of the internet in its early phases. Still, it has also been covertly fuelling its growth ever since that time.
Adult entertainment has shifted its focus to high-quality live streaming after helping to drive high-speed internet like YouTube’s 60% worldwide data traffic in 2018 and online video streaming like Skype’s 20%. Video content has become more significant to ordinary internet users in the adult entertainment industry.
Virtual Reality (VR)
Many platforms included a virtual reality segment last year. Users may see adult content material from a first-person viewpoint using virtual reality. Because users may now adopt multiple roles, this offers up many options. The distinction between passive voyeurism and active participation in the act is blurred in virtual reality. The adult content sector seems to be more than willing to embrace technology, which is still in its infancy entirely.
Did you expect adult content would be responsible for so much of the internet world? While we might debate whether adult entertainment is socially progressive, we can’t deny that it is technologically innovative. Adult entertainment has been a pioneer in many technological advances and is liable for much of today’s digital environment.
