iPhone 4 Offers New Chat Opportunities for Adult

NEW YORK — With the launch of the iPhone 4, adult companies wasted no time in taking advantage of the phone’s videoconference feature, developing video-sex chat services.

FoxNews.com reported that the porn industry has always been early adopters of new technologies.

According the report, Craigslist ads in several cities seek models for video sex chat on FaceTime, which lets people call another iPhone user and have live video conversations over a WI-FI connection through the phone’s camera and screen.

"A phone is such an intimate thing, you usually don't lend it out or have someone else use it,” Pink Visual’s Q Boyer said.

Boyer said his company began planning for iPhone 4 video services almost as soon as the device hit stores. Boyer said the company will offer FaceTime sessions with some of the same women who appear in its videos.

“It has a very personal feel — your mobile phone to hers," he said.

So far, most online video sex chat services have let the customer see the performer, but not the other way around. FaceTime may change that.

“We are seeing more and more that customers want to be watched as much as they want to watch,” said Dan Hogue, owner of CamWorld, which is planning FaceTime services.

Apple has been firm on its no-porn policy, but the company will have a hard time dictating how FaceTime is used.

Internet experts say customers will understand that Apple cannot control what goes on in private video chats.
