It is no secret that sex sells. I have previously highlighted the work of GOOD Magazine in creating this video explaining the porn industry and its financial success. That said, pornography generates interest and revenue both online and off and it was only a matter of time before Web 2.0 principles were applied to online porn. Zivity is one startup doing some interesting things in the space by enabling anyone to create and post their own videos, photos and other content and generate revenue for doing so. My friend Orli Yakuel has also previously pulled together an article showcasing a number of Porn 2.0 services. Fantasti.cc aggregates online video content from many of the video sites she listed.
Fantasti.cc offers ratings, comments and Digg-like voting to determine the hottest videos. It has other social features so users can create profiles and connect with one another. Fantasti.cc aggregates content from a bunch of different sources making it a one stop shop for all your free porn video needs. It also leverages 'folksonomy' or user tagging to help organize and categorize site content. In addition to videos Fantasti.cc also offers streaming real-time web cams.
I am not advocating viewing, creating or selling pornography I just wanted to point out that Fantasti.cc takes a very Web 2.0 approach to its video site by leveraging other site's content and incorportating social features to create an online pornographic video community. It's no wonder Fantasti.cc has seen its traffic grow significantly over the past year as shown in the chart.
