Red-Light District Goes Green

android_kandiIt was inevitable, wasn’t it?

Whether you embrace it or abhor it’s impossible to ignore the fact that porn is everywhere. Now, thanks to a new app store, the Android community has a red-light district.

When you consider the recent popularity of certain adult themed apps in the “real” app store like Fake Call Girl and the plethora of apps displaying women in various states of undress, a store dedicated to the industry is not unexpected–it does reek of desperation however. Not desperation on the part of the developer, but on the part of the consumer who frequents the shop.

I have long worked to avoid the “back when I was your age” stories when talking to my kids. Those tales of lore are better left for the really old, not a man in the prime of life like me! However, when it comes to the topic of pornography, a look back is helpful.  When I grew up porn was the Sears catalog. Specifically, the women’s under garment section. If we were lucky, my friends and I would find a tattered and torn page ripped from a recent Playboy magazine.

“Is that her arm or…?”

“I don’t know exactly but she kinda looks hot huh?”

Today porn is as prevalent as news that another high-paid athlete cheated on his wife.  Times have changed. Is that good, bad? Is it indifferent? Those are questions best answered personally and ones I will not attempt to address in this article.

If you enjoy porn, which is every persons’ right, then you have never been happier with so many options to choose from. If you don’t, then it’s not all that hard to ignore it. I am concerned however about the delivery method of this new app store.

Isn’t there a problem when someone needs the rush of a porn-buzz on a 1.99″ x 2.77″ screen? I believe there is. When you can’t wait until you get home to watch the latest release by Debbie DooMeh then, you my friend, might have a problem.  I’m curious to see how well the new app store does. Will anyone admit to stopping by for a visit? Will AndroidGuys review it? Would my wife believe me when I told her I had that app only for research purposes?  Will you do a Google search to find the app which I forgot to name in this article?

Love it or leave it, porn has gone Android.

      Ha, interesting take. I tried SO hard not to be preachy but I guess my pulpit was showing. Sorry about that.

      I have to stand by the statement though. If you need it THAT bad then there might be a problem; but I'm not a doctor, just play one on 🙂

      Thanks for the comment peejaybee.

      Jose I think you might have struck a chord with peejaybee lol… it's an opinion editorial we're all entitled to have an opinion no need to get butt hurt over it

      • I must have struck a chord with all those bluenosed prudes out there lol…

        Just my opinion, though, no need to get all butt hurt.

        Wow, this is so easy!

        • Jose

          Haha, porn has always been an easy target. (Bad pun not intended).

          It's all good peejaybee. I doubt anyones butt is hurting all that bad over this. I did say porn is everyones right – got nothing against the industry. Just chose to lean more towards family-oriented writing then otherwise.

          I'm not a prude… I'm not.. I'm not! 🙂

          Thanks again for the comment – all three of them.

          • All I can say about the three comments is "oops!" Not sure what I did wrong.

            Thanks for the discussion!

          • David M.

            It's hardly a discussion if all you're doing is calling people names and then reiterate what was already said peejaybee. If you want a real discussion let me know. Until then keep your adolescence quip's in your pants.

    Also interesting is that since the iPhone apps must go through Apple (unless jailbroken) and Android apps can be downloaded from anywhere could this position Android as VHS and iPhone as beta max in the mobile phone porn war? I don't think that there are so many hardcore porn users that it would tip the balance toward Android over iPhone… but it has driven growth in other technologies.

    • Jose

      I wonder – should that happen – if Google acknowledges it? Imagine Eric Schmidt at a share-holding meeting saying "Thanks in large part to a plethora of porn apps in the Android Market Android is the CLEAR leader in the mobile OS platform!".

      <Thunderous applause>

      "Thank you PORN!!!" shouts Schmidt!

      🙂 Could happen. Thanks for the comment guest!

  • Jose

    I'm trying to take the high-road David! (smile). Opinions ARE like belly-buttons, right? We all have one! Haha.

    butt hurt? (smile)

    Thanks for the comment.

    Given the personal revelation shared in this post (hilarious) a link to a relevant Penny Arcade comic seems required:

    • Jose

      Hahahahaha, thanks tlag. They make a "mournful sound"….. hahahaha

  • DroidRoy

    Yet another one to defile the sacred internet and our phones with the dirty world of PORN

  • This is a have to have app for anyone serious about the web and on the go! I wish I still had my rev a1 evdo card for my laptop too so I could design and do SEO then. All well. Great post

  • I wonder if it's indexed the same way too? I know that porn has less ad value per visit then lets say a visit to ect ect. Anyway, yeah porn if everywhere one the internet and parents can't stop it or can only try.

  • It is an interesting information how red light district goes green that to the new app store. I’ve found the post to very informative and useful. Over the years, numerous apps have developed to meet the requirement of various segments of the society. This is one such initiative.
