What is Porn – TroubleinthepeaceS


Pornography, or pornography, is also known in Vietnam as “depraved cultural products” or sometimes “products contrary to customs and traditions”. In general, whatever it is, it is something that everyone is interested in or curious about, but rarely talks about it. In the content of this article, I will mainly call these contents by the English word: porn, for ease.

You are watching: What is Porn

Porn has influenced many things in life and history, but in this article we will only talk about how this type of content affects the development of technology. What are those influences? Let’s take a look at:

1. Porn and the movie industry

The first adult film was produced in 1896 as “Le Coucher de la Mariée” and since then filmmakers have realized that people can be willing to spend (a lot) money just to watch someone else. undress on screen. And today the adult film industry is a multi-hundred billion dollar industry.

One of the effects of porn is that it promotes the development and use of new content delivery formats, especially in the film industry. In 1958, the first 8mm erotic film was produced by Harrison Marks and then 8mm camcorders became the industry standard. People no longer need to go to the cinema to watch porn anymore, they can do it from the comfort of their home. This has contributed to a boom in sales of 8mm camcorders and projectors.

Above is Betamax tape and below is VHS

In the 1970s, the war between VHS (JVC’s) and Betamax (Sony’s) tape formats raged. The Betamax format had better picture and sound quality, but at that time Sony banned the use of the Betamax format for the production of porn content, while VHS did not. This limited Betamax’s sales to VHS, as more than half of all video tapes sold in the US at the time were porn and contributed to the Betamax format’s loss to VHS tapes.

The same thing happened again during the VHS-to-CD conversion. Adult movie producers were also the first to promote the production of content on the CD format simply because: better picture-sound quality, longer lengths and therefore users. may be willing to pay more. The appearance of porn on CD helped drive this format to more market popularity, faster popularity and increased sales.

And again in the Blueray vs HD-DVD war of the 2000s, porn played a decisive role in deciding to choose Bluray as the standard format for adult movies.

2. Porn and the internet

Porn is an integral and inseparable part of the internet. The speed at which users received the internet and used it probably wouldn’t have been so fast had it not been possible for people to watch porn. Sure, I know you guys don’t go online just to watch porn but I’m sure there are more people who know the names of Saint Maria Ozawa or the school teacher than there are people in the government cabinet.

Out of the top 100 websites with the most traffic in the world, about 5 websites are porn and about 4% of the 1 million websites with the most traffic in the world are porn. Traffic to porn websites is more than traffic from Netflix, Twitter and Amazon combined and in addition over 35% of downloads from internet are porn related.

In addition, porn also affects the speed of the internet. How? As more and more young people go online to watch porn videos, the demand for faster internet speeds to do so also drives the demand higher.

3. Porn and e-commerce

Did you know that porn websites were among the first to use online payments? Credit card payments, identification processes, pay-per-view models, monthly subscriptions, all fueled by porn websites.

Porn sites are the first websites to apply online payments

Richard J. Gordon, founder of online credit card payment platforms and porn sites were the first customers, driving the adoption of online payments in the 1990s and beyond. Open to the first generation of e-commerce startups.

Some even say that porn sites could be one of the world’s first successful e-commerce models.

4. Porn and media apps

Porn is also one of the powerful reasons driving the development of communication such as chat. Porn sites were one of the first live chat application websites and thereby spurred the development of more communication applications. Did you know Snapchat, currently valued at 20 billion dollars, is a very popular application with young people in sex chat? Zalo used to be very popular as an application for young men and women to have the opportunity to flirt and send each other “intimate” images.

5. Porn and digital cameras

Do you remember once upon a time, when you finished taking a photo, you had to take your picture to the shop to wash it before you could have a picture to see it? If so, how can you save your hot images so that the stylists out there can’t see them? Until the polaroid camera appeared and people immediately realized that they could take nude photos of themselves or others without fear of being used by photographers. hand. The Polaroid camera was the foundation and forerunner of the digital cameras we use today.

6. Porn and Virtual Reality (VR) / Augmented Reality (AR)

As you have probably already seen from the sections above, porn producers are always the first to jump into the latest technologies and applications and this has not changed.

With virtual reality – VR, since supporting hardware has become more popular, porn with VR technology has also begun to appear. You can see how early testers experience porn on VR here:

With AR, although currently there is still no hardware platform that can really let AR develop (previously there was a Google Glass project but it was temporarily stopped, Microsoft Hololens is still not visible. porn producers thought about what role AR would play if there was porn, you can watch a funny video about it here:

Through the content above we can see that porn has had a significant impact on a number of technological advances and in some cases is also the driving force behind development. And it shows us that people’s motivation to develop is partly motivated very strongly by their own original instincts. From a marketer’s perspective, we need to understand how instinct plays a role in getting people to buy a product. From a product maker perspective, we need to understand how users will be able to use our product in one direction. Please leave your comments on this matter.
