If I were to ask one hundred random people on any random street in the US what their favorite porn site is, I'd probably get quite a few hilarious responses of men trying to sheepishly tell me they don't watch porn. Yeah, sure you don't, pal. But among the actually valid responses, I'm positive Naughty America would be in the top 5 (I'm guessing the others would probably be Brazzers, BangBros, Reality Kings and VNA). That's because Naughty America is consistently treating us to the hottest looking pornstars in the most epic scenes on their dozens of highly famous and highly recommended daughtersites. Don't believe me, check out this review of Naughty America as well as a list of most of its most interesting sites. It really is right up there at the top of the porn pyramid!
And that's why the news that Naughty America is now accepting Bitcoin microtransactions is so great. Now, I know not everyone likes Bitcoin. There were actually some big problems with the biggest currency exchange market just a few days ago and the markets are still recovering from that hiccup as we speak. But I'm not evangelizing about Bitcoin here, I'm telling you that it's excellent news that a major porn provider like Naughty America is now accepting Bitcoin, not that you need to start speculating immediately. I'm saying that Bitcoin can be a great tool - not that it's an amazing investment opportunity, though it may very well be.
Note that you could already pay in Bitcoin for monthly or yearly memberships at numerous sites and that's pretty great, because it's much easier to hide your purchase from your girlfriend/wife/mom this way, in case that's ever an issue. But microtransactions (though we're talking about values of about 2 dollars here, so it's more like minitransaction than microtransactions, but w/e) are definitely a big step forward. After all, when you use paypal or your credit card to pay for just a few days of trial access, that money actually disappears almost completely due to various payment fees, and the porn sites never actually see that money. That implies that they'll just use those trial memberships as ways to reel you in rather than as real commercial products.
And yeah, that's a pretty good strategy (hey it got me to become a member didn't it?), but what if there was a way for these porn producers to receive virtually the entire small payment rather than having to sign away the lion's share to other companies? Why, then selling short term trial accounts (or even individual scenes or minutes for a fraction of a dollar each?!) becomes a perfectly viable business strategy. And that in turn means more variety, more innovation and more diversity in the online porn industry. No, it's not gonna happen overnight, but I predict serious changes in the future if bitcoin or some other cryptocurrency eventually catches on for online microtransactions. See an amazing scene you have to see but don't think it's worth the price of a full month's membership? Well, in the near future, you might just be able to download it for a couple of cents' worth of Bitcoin. Wouldn't that be awesome?
Anyway, a lot of what I wrote here is not actually happening yet. For now, Naughty America is taking baby steps, but it's still leading the competition with its embrace of new technologies. As far as I know it is currently the only major porn site to accept small bitcoin transactions. Does that mean that we'll see real microtransactions soon and that a true porn revolution is underway? Only time will tell, but if you ask me, the answer is yes!
So this calls for a celebration of Naughty America's new Bitcoin plans. Waiter! Bring us a few of their most recent scenes!
