If you haven’t heard about Facetime its part of the new iPhone and allow you to see the other party your talking to, kind of like Skype does with a computer but unlike Skype you won’t have to accept a permanent invitation from someone that lets them see when your always online.
Since Facetime uses Wi-Fi rather than 3G quality is likely to be excellent and of course the screen itself it top rate.
As you also may know, Apple has been very anti-adult, not allowing any sort of adult apps in its store.
As soon as FaceTime was announced my first thought was this would make a great platform for adult “chat” and cam sites.
Now an ad has been spotted in the New York Craigs List:
“”Starting an online interactive pornography firm where woman will use the iphone 4 to video chat with potential customers on a pay as you go basis.
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.””
“”Payment will be based on percentage of sales volume and performance. Potential launch date of the company is 9/1/2010 or based on feedback received.””
“”Woman will receive, as before mentioned, a free cell phone and a very competitive salary.””
Please send information and pictures – we would like to launch sooner than 9/1/2010.

So here are the questions that I have?
Now what will or can Apple do to stop the use of its product for what maybe the biggest explosion (pun intended) in adult entertainment in years?
Will Facetime, further erode the internet adult entertainment industry or somehow help to revive it?
Will a great domain be of any use in the new age of Facetime or will it be irrelevant?
Have no interest in adult, remember that adult is always the first, not the last to use technology in new ways.
If a Facetime adult industry develops, main street will closely follow.
