how will porn penetrate twitter

You said penetrate, huh huh.

Not neccessarily porn proper either…but how will adult entertainment get its piece of the twitter pie? 

Agh.  Did it again.  *sigh*. 

Here’s one example of a new user doing what she can to draw a crowd: @bambidollface.  Her bio labels her a Bi Nympho Teen CumSlut, but thus far her posts are tame, on the whole.  She should use links more.

@GirlieGurl has more success than @bambidollface.  Her background is NSFW, but her tweets are tame.  My guess is she is more established elsewhere among the interwebs.  Has a home page in bio, prob a dirty lil number.

@Lexilapetina, bio says adult site owner.  Also has home page in bio.  Already I’m thinking they should embed their link in every tweet they do.  (True for other businesses too, or just the internet lookin’s?)  @audaciaray is a porn director and ‘sex nerd’, with many recent tweets from adult film awards ceremony.  @hardnhorny also has a home page that sounds adult enough for me to resist clicking it and putting it on the pc’s history.  His posts are protected, so as to whether he’s a fan or a biz, can’t tell.  @MidwestTeenSex purports to be booked for the Katie Couric show.  According to their bio, they make funny movies about teen sex.

And there’s plenty more users out there — you can click through replies from these users and learn more about the community.  I’m betting sex would sell better in twitter if my ‘following’ weren’t visible to all.  If that feature ever becomes optional (especially on a friend-by-friend basis), and the ‘following’ feature can get a little less transparent, adult entertainment will have way better results in twitter – like instant results.

    I think that’s a little too heavy-handed marketing for Twitter. A lot of the people I know in the adult industry who use Twitter don’t do it strictly for marketing purposes, it’s very much a social thing as well. Just because we’re running businesses or have something to promote doesn’t mean that we don’t participate in the social web in a genuine way.

  2. Hi, thanks for the comment! I’m following your tweets now.

    True, true. Good point. You are absolutely entitled to genuine, chilled-out social chat, just like me and my work friends, happy hr friends, etc etc.

    I’m just thinking more as someone with a product – any product – to market, and wondering more about how twitter can/will be used to market a product? For you, for instance, just in the past day I’ve received many hits on your name alone, so there’s web traffic galore out there for you. A consideration might be to open a twitter user for a new film, or a studio, series of movies, toys, etc, and see what kind of traffic it draws.

    Audacia, thanks for the read! Check back often, thanks.

  3. Midwest Teen Sex Show has appeared, as of your writing, on CBS’s Evening News with Katie Couric, and were treated quite positively. There isn’t much about what they do that’s so-called NSFW, nor are they really fairly called porn in any sense.

    The facet of the sex industry that’s missing from your take is that many of us have other activities in our lives than working in sexuality. Look at @tastytrixie for an example of raw, honest, naked twitter use from someone also shamelessly promoting her indie porn business. Social media apps are fleshing out what can be an otherwise anonymous activity — consuming & making sexual media. That’s what we’re doing on Twitter. We’ not just selling ourselves. We’re being ourselves.

  4. Thanks for the comment Melissa. @tastytrixie is a great example, thank you for the recommendation.
    I’ve been looking a lot at the tweets and users that from what I can tell are members of adult entertainment, and I feel I’ve learned a lot this week. (I’ve also shared the midest teen sex show website and movies with my wife, who loves their work. We have a 7 yr old son and are happy to find a resource like midwest.)
    It’s fascinating and a little hard for me to wrap my head around, you know, like what if I had my own indie porn biz and my body and sexual activities were my product, where I was kinda my own PR rep too…so are the customers savvy enough to know when someone like tasty trixie is working, and when she is not? or is she always working, as she is her own product in a sense?
    I appreciate your comments and would love to hear more from you or a colleague. Adult entertainment is one of THE core businesses in the country, like railroads used to be. Everybody’s doing it, myself included, and I like having the chance to learn more about the biz side of it. Expect more posts from me on the topic, and please help me learn more too. Gracias.

  5. Astounding. Of course Twitter makes perfect sense for them if they DON’T link back on every tweet. If they build up a community of followers, they can drop one in every 9-10th tweet.

    Sheez! i can’t believe I’m actually trying to analyze this!

  6. @brian brady, more people *do* need to analyze this. At its core, “adult” is just as boring as any other industry. Trust me.

    Well, okay, except we get to be naked.

    Zack, will you be at sxsw? Let’s chat!

  7. Adult also accounts for a giant chunk of our GDP, but we all turn a collective blind eye to it. (It’s as if the country collectively decided to ignore all the McDonald’s, all the McDonald’s business, the business segments that depend on McDonald’s, etc.) I of course don’t have access to the stats on it, but I have long wanted to create an adult entertainment index and compare it to the S&P for the last 10 years. I think we’d see a surprising performance for adult ent. I suspect adult antertainment may be one of the best examples of an industry that adopts new technologies earlier than others.

    I think its awesome that you’re analyzing it Brian. Social media networking in action right here: inadvertently learning about the similarities between mortgages and porno.

    Melissa I’m in schl and we have a 7yr old so that nixes my chances for sxsw late nights this year. But if you’re going to be in town I would love to chat! Your website’s great, and I think we’d have a good conversation. czgonzales [at] gmail.com if you want to email.
