The inevitable has happened... the iPhone 4 has been embraced by the sex industry.
Just about every new technological innovation finds it way into smut sooner ot later, and the porn industry quite often blazes a trail for new formats.
Despite theories to the contrary, the first video format war was won because the porn industry favoured VHS over better quality Betamax. Digital photography and video would still be in their infancy if it weren't for Californian smut peddlers. And multi media CDs and DVDs might never have been invented had it not been for the multi-billion-dollar adult movie industry.
Anyone who has ever wandered into the nether regions of the Sky TV programme guide late at night will be well aware that their seems to be a huge market for young ladies taking of their clothes and jiggling their buttocks for the amusement of lonely men.
It wouldn't take a genius to work out that the iPhone's Face Time function would soon be snapped up by the porn industry, allowing punters to chat one-on-one with boys and girls willing to show off their baby-making bits for a buck.
The iPhone 4 has only been available for a few days and already the wheels of the porn industry are in motion. Factimeporn.com has been registered, and ads are starting to appear on the likes of Graigslist offering women a free iPhone 4 and 'a very competetive salary' for operating a 'pay as you go' (shouldn't that be pay as you come?) sex chat line.
The ad says, "Hours are flexible, pay will increase as the business builds. Woman will receive a free iphone 4 to use as personal time when not working. Woman will talk to potential clients and chat with them and perform various acts as desired by clients. All information will be confidential."
This may be the first sex chat company centred around the iPhone 4's Face Time technology, but we'd be prepared to bet it won't be the last.
