Come And Get It: Naughty America Is Building An iTunes For Porn
Wednesday, October 8, 2008; 2:51 PM
Naughty America, a porn production company based out of Southern California, is building an Adobe Air-based storefront called Naughty America Direct that is basically an iTunes for porn. The app includes full-length DRM-free scenes for $1.99 each that are available in formats compatible with the iPod and iPhone, and requires no subscription. To grab an invite to the app's ongoing private beta, go here and enter the code "techcrunch". As if there was any doubt, this is all NSFW.
Update:The site is now open to everyone, no invite code needed.
Users of Apple's iTunes store will be right at home with Naughty America Direct. Featured movies are shown as thumbnails on the front page, and users can navigate with a sidebar on the left side of the screen to access clips by their favorite performers or from their favorite website. Content is drawn from Naughty America's collection of footage across sites like "Naughty Bookworms", "Diary of a Nanny", and "Seduced by a Cougar".
Naughty America Express doesn't have the recurring fees of a subscription, and while it may cost a couple of dollars, it isn't riddled with the advertisements and popups that plague free sites (or so I'm told).
Because the app is built on Air, it will work on both Windows and Mac. Naughty America also notes that this is one of (if not the first) applications on Adobe's Air platform that allows of secure credit card transactions.
