iPhone has everything going for its success, even porn

What do Polaroid, VHS, and the Internet have in common? They owe a huge part of their success to sex. As Boris once said in the comments on this blog: “Porn is usually the killer app“. He was referring to Qik, the mobile video streaming service that has a lot of porn-related opportunities (The Qik team doesn’t want to take advantage of this though, as they’ll blacklist users who make naughty videos). There’s another company who doesn’t want anything to do with porn, but which WILL profit from it – big time.

But there’s one thing that Bowcock, nor Steve Jobs, can’t control: the users’ browsing adventures. And thus, the solid Safari browser opens the gates to a mobile porn heaven.

Some people get really excited by the thought of a new iPhone and the sex part combined. Not everyone dares to express these fantasies though. Apart from one blogger, Jason Swifter, who wrote “what everyone wants, but is too chicken to say“:

I wish that there was an application that allowed you to undress people by dragging your fingers across the screen and literally dragging it off.

Seems like the iPhone has everything going for its success. It already was a killer app, yet the popularity will multiply now the sex frontier is in sight.
