Bitporn: The naughty side of the coin

“Utilizing Bitcoins for adult entertainment offers clients a degree of anonymity exceeding even the use of cash for such transactions,” reads a post on the website for Bunnies of Las Vegas [NSFW], an escort service that just announced Wednesday it would begin accepting Bitcoin payments. 

 
In a town — and an industry — that values discretion, the anonymity crypto-currencies provide could be a game changer. 
 
For escort services, crypto-currency payments are easily integrated into the business model. For porn, however, there are a couple of problems. 
 
We touched on this idea back around Valentine’s Day. The main issue right now is that Bitcoin does not allow for recurring payments, which is the preferred model for most pay porn sites. Most subscribers seem unlikely to manually update their subscriptions. 
 
One place Bitcoin does seem to work, though, is on cam sites [NSFW]. The direct payment feature of Bitcoin and other digital currencies means an on-cam entertainer can collect tips immediately and discretely.
