India-Blocks-XXXThe Adult Industry’s fears concerning ICANN’s recent approval of the top level “.XXX” domain seem to be coming true. The Indian government has boldly stated their plans to block all access to “.XXX” web addresses. According to The Indian Technology Act of 2001, “Whoever publishes or transmits or causes to be published or transmitted in the electronic form any material which contains sexually explicit act or conduct shall be punished on first conviction with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to five years and with fine which may extend to ten lakh rupees [approx. US$20,833] and in the event of second or subsequent conviction with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to seven years and also with fine which may extend to ten lakh rupees.”

Extended fears include Adult websites being forced to give up their “.com” or “.net” addresses for exclusive “.xxx” properties. Of course, such a thing would make censoring all adult materials much easier for more sexually conservative governments. None the less, not everyone is convinced India’s bark has much bite included. Opinions of The Indian Technology Act’s section 67 vary greatly from firmly believing in the negative hype, to thinking it’s rulings are nothing more than a mockery.

“India along with many other countries from the Middle East and Indonesia opposed the grant of the domain in the first place, and we would proceed to block the whole domain, as it goes against the IT Act and Indian laws,” an unidentified “senior official” at the Indian Ministry of Internet Technology told the Economic Times. “Though some people have said that segregation is better, and some countries allow it, for other nations transmission and direct distribution of such content goes against their morals and culture.” – AVN

HotMovies VOD Site ReviewCategories: VOD Videos

Reviewed by LittleO on 2011-01-18

This site is a Video On Demand (VOD) which means that you will be charged by the minute to watch porn movies. With over 150,000 DVD quality movies to choose from you can bet that whatever turns you on will definitely be offered.

Their list of categories immediately available on their advertised page will give you an idea of just how thorough this site is: Amateur, Anal, Classics, Cum Shots, For Women, Group Sex, Hardcore, Hentai, Interracial, Lesbian, Masturbation, M.I.L.F., Oral, Public Sex, Teens, Voyeur or you can choose All Categories, which will definitely bring you quite a lot of choices to make!

But let’s suppose that you have your own fetish that you wish to narrow down so that you only get movies of the ilk you desire, you therefore type in the category you decide upon, and the computer will give you a long list from which to choose. The results will show ten different movies at a time with the outside of the box shown for you, as well as the beginning of the descriptive entry. In addition it will have the stars of the movie, the particular studio that made it, and a rating of 1 to 5 stars from those who have watched the movie. You will have a choice to play the movie right away, by choosing either High or Ultra, or if you desire to read more, you can simply click “More.” The More button will give you an additional description of what the video is about, approximate running time, and the categories that the movie fits into.

That last description of the categories is important. Let’s use BDSM as an example. If you are a male looking for only a Dominatrix/Mistress being portrayed on the film, you do not wish to encounter a male dominant playing with a female submissive, now do you? In addition, you will now be able to see what the back of the box looks like, in order to better judge what you will be seeing, much as you would in a video store. But, this is much better than a video store, because you can click on Scene Detail, or Scene Index and have scenes to choose from instead of the whole movie. Imagine being able to do that in a video store!

Now things get really interesting, if you click on Cast Stars. The breakdown of each actor in the film is excellent with an accompanying picture of the star, and a terrific amount of information on each, that even includes a link to their homepage that will give you more information on the particular star! What an amazing world we live in to be able to get that much information that quickly on even porn stars!

In addition, if you liked a particular movie, you will see a section entitled “Viewers who watched this movie also liked:” and there are then more boxes for your perusal, but the point is that the movies will all be quite similar in “taste” to what you were watching. One negative I personally encountered was that some of the movies are rated for a premium rate if for example a movie is difficult to find and such. At that time you will be charged a premium against your minutes, but you are adequately warned of such.

Conclusion:
In conclusion, because a VOD site’s worth is equaled by the site’s efficacy to search out the movies you wish to see, this site rates very high. The search engine narrows down exactly what the viewer wishes, and there are more than enough movies for it to search that it will find it!

Score: 90

Review from Tyler’s Porn Reviews

France is the first country in Europe to get a 3D porn video on demand service, courtesy of Paris-based Marc Dorcel Television.

Marc Dorcel is set to launch the first 3D Porn subscription video-on-demand (VoD) service in Europe via French IPTV platform Free.

‘Regardless of whether 3D adult movies are a good idea, er, artistically, this service is certainly cutting-edge in that it’s VOD,” says deputy editor of Home Cinema Choice magazine, Mark Craven.

“3DTV looks certain to head down that route. There isn’t enough content to fill dedicated channels, and consumers aren’t likely to sit and watch hour after hour of 3D anyway.

“It’s more of an event. Indeed, we expect eventual 3D offerings from the BBC (which probably won’t be porn!) to be distributed via iPlayer, rather than a BBC 3D channel.”

The French porn producers also plan to roll out 3D adult video-on-demand programming to other TV partners in France, as well as other countries across Europe.

Rest assured, we will be the first to bring you the news on when a 3D porn VoD service is set to arrive in the UK.

Much as many strait-laced and prudish cultural and tech commentators may wish to deny it, adult entertainment and gaming are often cited with being two key forms of content that drive the uptake of new consumer technologies in the home.

The Porn Detection Stick, by Paraben, is a $100 thumb drive stuffed with Windows-compatible image detection software. Give it an hour and a half, and the device can scan 70,000 images—even deleted ones—with algorithms that analyze “facial features, flesh tone colors, image back grounds, body part shapes, and more.”

The system promises less than 1% false positives.

Of course, what the software can’t analyze are any videos that may be saved to your hard drive or pretty much anything in the web. In fact, the Porn Detection Stick seems designed for a whole other era of pornographic distribution, one when the discerning man might have scanned the latest Playboy to his 386 for posterity before pulling down his Zubaz pants to masturbate to it. Then again, maybe that’s a good thing. – Gizmodo

The only thing I want one of these for, is to see how fast I could fry it here at the office. There are more pornographic images on my PC than any life long dedicated porn addict could ever compile together at home. Sometimes we do sexy math on Fridays, and the results are pretty impressive.

If you allow an average of 1.5 hours per Adult Video HotMovies.com has available, there is 225,000 hours of Adult Video on Demand content on our network.

If you then also allow for the average 2.6 minutes it takes for a male to ejaculate. There are over 5,192,307 orgasms worth of Adult Video content that HotMovies.com provides.

Therefore, HotMovies.com is the best significant other in the history of significant others.

Internet TV Porn - PinkVisual.TVPink Visual is continuing to follow the trend it set with it’s iPad ready site by launching PinkVisual.tv today. Pink Visual believes strongly in being prepared for all new technologies, and proved so by launching an iPad-optimized version of their flagship site days before the actual launch of the device. Now, Sony’s new internet TV is available in Best Buy stores across the US…and guess who is the first to jump into the new pool.

“We’ve established that there’s real value in being first-to-market when new technologies hit and we move quickly to ensure that we’re part of that first wave of adult companies to target the latest consumer technologies,” said Liam Colins, Director of Business Development for Pink Visual. “We also believe that Google TV is extremely well positioned to be a major player in the web-enabled television space, making it all the more important that we are prepared to serve up Google TV-friendly content from day one.” - AVN

Media outlets reported in March 2010 that the Google TV project was under way, using the Android operating system, although the partnering companies did not confirm their involvement in the venture until later.

An Android-based set-top box that featured video-on-demand, ThinkFree Office viewer software, a browser, remote control, keyboard interface and 1080p video was shown by Western Mediabridge at CES 2010.

The project was officially announced at the 2010 Google I/O conference on May 20. Google stated that the new platform would be incorporated directly into new high-definition television sets and Blu-ray players by Sony, although set-top boxes will also be developed by Logitech. The company indicated that the new systems developed by Sony and Logitech will be powered by Intel Atom based CE4100 consumer electronics system-on-chip. It also stated that a “fully optimized” viewer experience would be available through the Dish Network, although the platform will operate through any provider.

In May 2010, Sony announced that it would be releasing its Google-enabled Sony Internet TV product lineup in the fall of 2010, including standalone TV models and set-top units with integrated Blu-ray drives.

Google also confirmed that it intends for Google TV to be launched this fall. According to B4Tea, Google TV will be launched October 17, 2010. Post the launch there is talk of a rift between Google and TV networks, which has resulted in major TV networks blocking key programs on Google TV.

PinkVisual.tv is engineered to be fully compatible with large television screens and will allow users to navigate the site using new Internet TV controls. Access to the site is $24.95 per month or $39.95 for a 90 day subscription. There is also an option available to purchase a 1-day preview for $1.

“Just as the popularity of the iPhone has driven the development of the smartphone market and inspired many competitors to develop advanced mobile devices, we expect Google TV to spawn competition in the Internet TV space in the months ahead,” Colins said. “The great part for us is that we don’t have to pick the winners of the tech market share competition; we just prepare to deliver content as effectively as possible to every device, and let the chips fall where they may.” - AVN

TOKYO—Toshiba has unveiled two new 3D TVs at a technology conference in Japan this week that enable the user to view the 3D experience without the use of glasses.

The TVs, which aren’t expected to be sold in the U.S., utilize autostereoscopic 3D technology by providing a filter on top of the TV. The viewer must sit at a certain angle to properly experience the 3D effect.

With 3D porn becoming a hot commodity within the industry, not to mention the ramp up in production of such content, how could the adult industry benefit from the rollout of this technology? Ostensibly, the experience becomes less cumbersome and easier to access without having to wear special glasses.

Funky Monkey Movies’ J. Lalls, a leading producer of adult 3D content, believes glasses-less 3D TVs is the wave of the future.

“I saw [3D TVs that don’t require glasses] at a 3D conference last week,” Lalls told AVN. “It is the next big thing in entertainment. Within two years everyone will have one. The revolution has begun—and it will be televised.”

Following Toshiba’s lead, Sony and other manufacturers expect to release similar types of TVs that don’t require glasses in order for the viewer to process 3D images.

There are drawbacks to the technology, however, most notably that right now it works best with a small screen size. Toshiba’s new flat-panel TVs equipped with this technology are only 12 and 21 inches.

At the Ceatec Conference, however, Toshiba also is displaying the no-glasses 3D technology on a 56-inch prototype TV.

Toshiba’s autostereoscopic technology provides “nine different perspectives of each single 2D frame,” which are then “superimposed” by the viewer’s visual cortex to create a 3D impression.

Toshiba’s new TVs are expected to be released in Japan by the end of the year.

CYBERSPACE— Last week, Larry Flynt Internet Group filed a lawsuit in a Dallas federal court against 635 anonymous individuals the company says it can prove engaged in a coordinated effort to unlawfully reproduce and distribute Hustler’s “copyrighted motion picture, Barely Legal School Girls: No. 6, by means of file transfer technology called, BitTorrent.”

It and other recent cases of porn producers willing to target BitTorrent users reveals the increasing and unambiguous embrace of a tactic the industry has thus far by and large avoided.

Tuesday, another lawsuit was filed in Dallas by Evan Stone, the same attorney who filed on behalf of Flynt Internet, accusing 670 Does of the same offenses on behalf of Mick Haig Productions, which owns the copyright to the adult German porn film Der Gute Onkel.

“With [Haig's] additional 670 lawsuits, the total number of copyright complaints focusing on adult movies now totals over 2,200,” reported Slyck News. The Haig and Flynt Internet cases were preceded by other notable lawsuits targeting Does, including concurrent filings by Lightspeed Media Corporation, Millenium TGA and Hard Drive Productions.

The new offensive apparently also includes an element unavailable to those in the mainstream: the embarrassment factor. According to AFP, in an article posted to Yahoo! News Saturday, “Studios are working with lawyers at Media Copyright Group and Copyright Enforcement Services on the litigation, with an initial legal barrage focused on videos touting she-males or 18-year-old girls.”

The article quotes Pink Visual President Allison Vivas as saying, “It seems like it will be quite embarrassing for whichever user ends up in a lawsuit about using a popular she-male title. When it comes to private sexual fantasies and fetishes, going public is probably not worth the risk that these torrent and peer-to-peer users are taking.”

The article also quotes Steve Lightspeed, founder of Lightspeed Media, who was granted an ex parte Order Sept. 15 on a motion to have the discovery phase of his case expedited, meaning the internet service providers (ISPs) the attorneys subpoenaed in order to get identifying information for John Does identified in the complaint only by IP address could be served immediately. Doe information being requested includes “name, current (and premanent) addresses, telephone number, e-mail address, and Media Access Control address.” ISPs subpoenaed by Lightspeed include Comcast Cable, Bell South, RoadRinner, Verizon and Sprint, among others.

The Lightspeed Order highlights the different experience adult producers are having from that of attorneys in the massive U.S. Copyright Group lawsuit, filed in the District of Columbia against thousands of “John Doe” defendants accused of illegally downloading The Hurt Locker. This week, according to Ars Technica, “A federal judge in South Dakota… squashed a US Copyright Group subpoena targeting an ISP in his state.”

In the Yahoo! News article, Steve Lightspeed commented not just on the targets of his lawsuit, but also about the overall picture faced by producers of adult content.

“Piracy on the internet is much more available to the average user than it ever was,” he said. “The technology has outpaced the laws. We really need to organize ourselves and lobby for a change in the law,” he added, referring to the Digital Millenium Copyright Act.

The article also mentioned the upcoming Content Protection Retreat, being put on by Pink Visual in Arizona in October.

The three-day event will educate the adult industry in the ways of the pirate and help tackle what is a bit of a headache for the pornographic industry. The event is limiting itself to 30 companies, which have to match the following criteria:

“In order to be considered as an attendee of the CPR, your company must own the rights to at least 2,000 adult videos.”

This is one of the first conferences of its kind to tackle piracy in the pornographic market and it has already had the backing from big names, like Hustler, Titan Media and Private.

Pink Visual is hoping that the conference will help with its plight to “effectively drive those who engage in adult content piracy completely underground by January 2012″.

Pearce Delphin - Twitter "onMouseover" Hacker

Since Web Marketing gurus have been able to track the event activity on Twitter.com, no one has disputed the power of instant micro-blogging. Although, popular online marketing tools never seem to last long without becoming an equally popular target for hackers.

It seems Australia can now boast another Web Star besides WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. 17 year old Pearce Delphin has been named as the starting point of this week’s international Twitter incident. Pearce has gained his 15 minutes of global E-Fame by tweeting a fairly common Javascript Code called an “onMouseover“. The “onMouseoverJavascript command causes a link to trigger an event when the pointer moves over it. Pearce Delphin claims he created the tweet only to see if it was possible, but other hackers took advantage of his curious ingenuity. Web tyrants used the “onMouseover” to cause Japanese porn site pop ups and to launch worm viruses, which automatically replicate the tweet. This ball of reprehensible web crap found it’s way to the accounts of such high-profile figures as White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs and Sarah Brown, wife of former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

“The vast majority of exploits related to this incident fell under the prank or promotional categories. Users may still see strange retweets in their timelines caused by the exploit. However, we are not aware of any issues related to it that would cause harm to computers or their accounts. And, there is no need to change passwords because user account information was not compromised through this exploit.”Twitter.com

Twitter has decided not to press charges against Pearce Delphin for his simple curiosities and understanding of Web Code. The 17 year old from Melbourne is enjoying every millisecond of his media coverage. His Twitter profile reads, “An almost legal teen (XVII), social media whore & politics lover. Good at being angry on Twitter. Also good at drinking vodka. & looking hot.” Oh to be seventeen and baptized by electronics.

Free Porn Virus-Alert - Here We Have VirusLONDON, UK - A new e-mail virus that promises access to free sex films is wreaking havoc on some of the biggest businesses across the world.

The ‘trojan’ virus with the subject ‘Here you have‘ is filling in-boxes with multiple e-mails after infecting users’ address books. In some cases, the virus is bringing down corporate e-mail systems with the sheer weight of messages, the Daily Mail reported.

Trojans are malicious programs that hide inside apparently harmless computer files.

The virus arrives as an e-mail with the subject line ‘Here you have‘ and invites the user to click on a link to a PDF file. One of the most common variants promises a link to free ‘sex downloads’.

Once the user does so, the virus is downloaded onto his machine and spreads to all the contacts inside of his e-mail account, sending them the same e-mail in turn.

The worm also tries to shut down any anti-virus software that has been installed.

Firms including Nasa, Comcast, AIG, Disney and Proctor & Gamble have all been affected.

Comcast was forced to shut down its servers Friday after being hit by the virus.

The term ‘Here you have virus’ is now one of the most searched for phrases on Google.

One version of the e-mail says, ‘Hello: This is the document I told you about, you can find it here‘ and includes a link to what looks like a PDF.

Another includes the subject ‘Just for you‘ and says ‘This is the free download sex movies, you can find it here.

If you receive the messages, computer security firm McAfee says to delete the message without clicking the link and alert your IT office.

Ram Herkanaidu, security researcher at Moscow headquartered Kaspersky Lab, said that the e-mail closely resembles the ‘I love you‘ virus which caused havoc about 10 years ago.

His firm has now raised their global ‘threat’ level.

“We’ve identified an e-mail worm called VBMania. The interesting thing about it is that it uses very old tactics. The worm is so called because it worms itself through your e-mail address book and sends copies of itself out to all your contacts,” he said.

Dear ePassporte Account Holders,

Please be advised that, at 12:00 PM PDT today, September 2, 2010, we were notified that effective immediately, Visa International has suspended our banking partner’s (St. Kitts Nevis Anguilla National Bank) ePassporte Visa program. The ePassporte e-Wallet program continues to be up and running, except funds cannot be transferred between your Visa Account and your e-Wallet. At this time ePassporte can no longer issue Visa Cards, and the ability for our Account Holders to make point of sale purchases and withdraw funds from ATMs has also been suspended.

At this time we do not know why this drastic action was taken by Visa. To us, it is unconscionable that such action would be taken without the opportunity for ePassporte to fully understand Visa’s reasons and to be able to take all steps necessary to keep our program running the way it has so successfully done for over 7 years. But that is what Visa has done.

As soon as we have more information we will be in contact with you.

In the meantime please be assured that your funds are safe.

We are very sorry for the short notice and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. The ePassporte team is working diligently to rectify this situation.

We kindly ask you to bear with us while we work through this issue.

Please feel free to contact us via the message center or at our call center, should you have any questions, comments or concerns.

Thank You,


Christopher Mallick
