iPhone Porn Unsurprisingly A Growth Industry

Now made for masturbating during overlong board meetings or car trips — the iPhone. The burgeoning mobile porn business, which was once confined to slow-loading sepia-tinted Jpegs of flappers in bathing suits, now features all kinds of fun applets for erotic text chatting, "moan tones," and video. The $1.7 billion industry set to balloon even further once the iPhone 2.0 debuts on July 11. The Google search results on "iPhone porn" are tumescent, too, and there are many, many websites in existence that can cater to all your hand-held smut needs. Here are a few:

Steve Jobs doesn't really disprove of the alternative uses of his PDA since the Apple lackey he sent to address the issue to Time magazine is named Jennifer Bowcock. The only problem with iPhone porn? The technology hasn't kept apace with the private spank Idahos of certain bloggers like Jason Swifter (another good name): "I wish there was an application that allowed you to undress people by dragging your fingers across the screen and literally dragging it off." Soon, Jason, soon.

About a third of iPhone users watch video on their phone, according to Nielsen Mobile, nearly 10 times the number that watch video on other cell phones. Three out of four iPhone users are men with above-average incomes, and iPhone users spend heavily on entertainment. More than a third of iPhone users shell out more than $100 on phone and data charges every month, as compared with just a fifth of other cell phone users.

That more than half the male owners of the device have had to buy actual cell phones for making calls might have clued in industry analysts.
