iPhone Porn Debate: Are You With or Against?

We’re bringing these videos to your iPhone, iPod Touch …. so that you can take them anywhere – your office, the bathroom, or the supply closet. Wherever you go, your porn goes with you…. people will be asking “Is that an iPod in your pocket or are you happy to see me?”

What kind of message is that? I mean seriously! Do we really want to help promote such a wide propagation of porn and nudity on such a large social media platform such as the iPhone?

iPhone Welcomes Porn

iPhone Welcomes Porn

In order to be as unbiased as possible regarding this sensitive (and dangerous) topic, I have prepared a list of pros and cons for the topic of mobile porn, especially that related to the iPhone iPorn!

The List of Cons:

  • Did the “If you’re not yet 18, leave the site now” ever work before? Why does Apple think it can really protect children from finding porn so easily on a iPhone when they were able to unlock satellite parental codes!
  • Isn’t the porn industry supposed to be based on privacy and discretion? Wouldn’t this promote sexual abuse at the workplace, in the streets, on public buses, in colleges and so on?
  • Is iPhone, in a way, promoting addiction to porn and objectifying women?
  • Guys, be prepared for some awkward moments if your female boss picks up your phone and sees that nude wallpaper!


The List of Pros:

  • With the economical downturns, the well-known concept of “sex sells” can help iPhone application developers make some money.
  • There are already so many porn sites out there accessible via the iPhone’s built-in browser, and each iPhone is hooked to the Web by default. So, why not an app?
  • As far as societies are concerned, it is okay for adults to browse for porn.
  • Higher market share for iPhone (yes, they might benefit largely from such a move).

Now that we have laid down the two sides of the debate, are you with or against?

    I'm 100% against the introduction of porn or nudity of any kind to the iPhone. I believe that there are enough venues that provide such content on the web and does not need to be transferred into our daily lives on a regular basis!

    I think porn like every other kind of content will naturally find its way to every new technology platform thats built…the iPhone is just one of those platforms. The only difference its because of the popularity of the iPhone…its a huge platform for content to be distributed. Although i'm not for it.. I think its just going to find its way to any distribution channel whether the iPhone or the next gadget that takes teh world by storm.

    Sure porn in reachable from anywhere, and yes even on iphone people know ways to have their collections with them, but why is the ad? I mean does Apple really want to associate itself with porn?

  • http://www.buzzfactory.net/ Neil

    Sorry…I missed that point. Wooow if this is Apples marketing strategy then…they need to do some major rethinking

  • http://blog.thoughtpick.com Amer Kawar

    I think I'm pro allowing it. I don't think that kids are protected with or without Apple allowing nudity, so what the hell!

    It's Apple's company to run as they see fit, and if a person simply must have nudity there are plenty of of other outlets of which to acquire it from.

  • jonas

    this is the silliest debate ever. apple can control what their app store offers (and boy o boy do they control), but thankfully internet is still a free forum where people can share experiences, and yes, even their sex videos! safari is just a web browser, so anybody can go to xtream.mobi and watch whatever they want from their iphones without apple getting in the middle.

    As far as societies are concerned, it is okay for adults to browse for porn, we agree with that, [link removed]

  • Bogs

    For personal use, I am with iphone porn or any phone with good quality of videos will do.
    At least, i can carry them anytime i want. Not the same as per notebook or laptop that i cant bring with at the bathroom.

  • Naix

    I agree using phones for sex porn.

    Because it is handy, we can use it even to the restrooms when we feel like doing stuffs.

  • http://salope.biz Salope

    I agree that there's no wrong on having a porn on a cellphone such as those iPhone models as long as it is been used by those matured people and not being access and tolerated to those children who are not in the right age yet of maturity.

  • http://stripperoutofcontrol.com Stripper Out Of Control

    I'm against with those people that use iPhone porn stuffs in a way that do not have the right control of using it. A lot of people love porn especially men but to think of it there must be a mature role for a person in handling those kinds of stuff. I can say that porn is a serious thing.
