Porn Potato

In case you don't get the reference in the title... The origin is here.
I shouldn’t have been surprised, but I was. I was on the train last night. I found a seat, but before I sit down, I find my eyes facing the back of the 50-something guy seated in front of me and my eyes are immediately drawn to the full-screen image on his phone. It’s Porn.
On his phone.
And he’s clicking the screen... to another image. He’s surfing. On his phone. “Not that there’s anything wrong with that”.

He can definitely sense that I’m right behind him (I’m barely 2-feet away) and others are just as close, looking at his phone screen as clearly as he is, and he makes no defensive, nonchalant, screen-blocking gestures, no dirty looks. So I don’t feel embarrassed for him, because he has no embarrassment... which is all fine.

He’s just thinking “That’s right. I’m here on the train ride home, checking out some porn. On my phone. Yes siree... great way to unwind after a tough day in the salt mines”.

Dude! What’s up? If your wife calls on that phone, you gonna say “yes, I’m on the train – I’m getting off soon” (oops)... And it’s not even an iPhone... so he can’t zoom in with his sweaty little fingers. Imagine Apple marketing to that use case... I could just imagine the white silhouetted iPhone porn surfers to go along with their cool ipod campaign.

I know... Half the people reading this will probably think I sound uptight("It’s just porn".) On his phone? The other half will probably be offended that I could even mention this whole story ("That's disgusting, don't give other people ideas").

Now, every time I see someone hovered over their phone, I’m just gonna wink, smirk and give them a knowing nod.. or maybe I’ll add, in my best Borat voice, “Niiiice – you make a sexy time on your phone!”.

Since "The Internet is for Porn", I don't see why people shouldn't access porn on their mobile phones. Besides - yeah, it's just PORN. There's nothing to it, really.

OK, we know you aren't into porn. But your porn-fiend "friends" can save paper and plastic by feeding their fetishes via this neat, new doohickey called the Interweb. (The rest of us can get our PG-rated magazines, movies, and music online.)

I feel that the best way to receive mobile iPhone Adult Content is via STREAMING rather then via Download. Unlike all the other mobile iPhone Adult Content providers, "OneTapPorn" offers STREAMING Content to it's iPhone customers!

Why Streaming Video? Streaming Content offers PRIVACY! After viewing a movie that has been STREAMED to an iPhone, there is no trace that you have viewed the movie ( nothing listed in your iPhone's memory ).
Since STREAMING does not take up any iPhone memory, your iPhone memory can be used for loading other iPhone Applications.

This service offers Privacy and Peace-Of-Mind! For more information on how you can STREAM Adult Content to your iPhone and take a FREE Tour of the "OneTapPorn" Service, KEY IN EITHER URL'S TO YOUR IPHONE's BROWSER:

Good comments and references... but here is a true iPhone / iPod porn site that just came out this week… it is still in its infancy… But at the same time, this one is bound to become a big hit pretty fast.

Enjoy it! :-)
