Network Effects Are Why #Pornocalypse Is Bad News

Here is a Guardian article that’s all about the trouble Big Data is having with its primary business model. Supposedly the model is to track (spy on) users, then use what Big Data learns about us to do better advertising (and then charge a lot of money for that). The article says this model’s not going so well (for reasons). But I was rather more interested in a tidbit about the other business model that is working rather better for Facebook:

The other profitable line for Facebook is sneakier, and possibly longer-lived. The company can easily see which of the commercial/brand/business pages on its service are growing fastest. These correspond to the businesses that are exerting the most energy to get their customers to follow them on Facebook and making Facebook most integral to their daily business.

When Facebook’s algorithms predict that a business is well and truly reliant upon Facebook to reach its customers, it simply switches off the business’s ability to reach those customers, so that new updates only go to a small fraction of the company’s followers. Thereafter, a Facebook salesperson gives the business a call and offer to turn the tap back on – for a price. That’s not the surveillance business-model. It’s a much older one: the drug-dealer business-model, where the first taste is free.

What’s going on here is that instead of spying on consumers to sell more and better ads, Facebook is instead monetizing its own network effects. Businesses have to pay up; they can’t just “go somewhere else” because all the people they need to reach are (for the time being) stuck on Facebook too. It’s one big sticky wad of flypaper, and the glue is Metcalfe’s Law (basically, networks are more valuable the more people who use them).

This is somewhat related to my #Pornocalypse ranting because access to social media is so difficult for people doing adult business. Big Face says “we don’t want your stinky porn on our network” and an entire industry is locked out of one of the most useful networks on the planet. Multiply that by basically every other social network of size except Tumblr and Twitter, and it’s a serious problem. That’s why we are so sensitive to #Pornocalypse rumblings at Tumblr and Twitter and on any other more minor social networks where adult content is still welcome: it’s far too easy to imagine a world where marketing absolutely requires access to social media, and in which adult businesses are completely excluded from those networks.

Tantus Sex Toy Sale

stockroom-tantus-sale

The summer sales are coming fast and furious at The Stockroom. This week’s offering is the Tantus sale. Now through July 9th, you get 25% off the price of 48 different Tantus-branded sex toys, including butt plugs, dildos and dildo harnesses, cock and ball toys, and BDSM implements.

25% across-the-board discounts means you save the most money when buying the higher-ticket items. And one of the highest-ticket items on sale is the huge Tantus Hoss dildo. You don’t often see really big silicone toys at affordable prices, because silicone is an expensive material and a big toy means a lot of silicone. So if size is your thing, now’s the time get it and get it good:

tantus-hoss-giant-silicone-dildo

Introducing the silicone dildo of your dreams: The Tantus Hoss. Hoss is by far Tantus’ largest dildo coming in at over 12 solid inches with a 2.75 inch diameter. This is an advanced sextoy for people who know what they want and demand finest quality from products they put in their bodies.

Made of 100% medical grade platinum silicone, Hoss is hypoallergenic and phthalate free. You can easily clean him by putting him in a mild bleach solution or on the top shelf of your dishwasher and is perfect for those with sensitive skin.

Also on sale is the well-respected Bend Over strapon dildo “starter kit” that Tantus makes for people interested in pegging and such:

tantus-bend-over-strapon-dildo-starter-kit

Is there someone in your life who is curious about strapping it on, but doesn’t know quite where to begin? Well, we have the perfect starter kits! Everything a beginner and intermediate sensuous player would need to strap it on is included in this package.

This strap-on harness is low-riding with a fuzzy velvet front and highly adjustable nylon straps. The kit has 2 color coordinated dildos. These hypoallergenic silicone dildos are shaped and sized appropriately for those just beginning anal play adventures.

A powerful variable-speed mini-vibe sits in a secret pocket behind the dildo to give the wearer an extra jolt of fun. The straps are adjustable, fitting up to 50″ hips. The 1½” O-ring can be exchanged for play with other sized dildos (sold separately). Washable, smart, and sexy. Bottom line: this is one hot strap-on package!

Foul Derrière Secrets

With a style that reminds me strongly of a modernized Wicked Wanda, the nasty-Nazi Dofantasy comedic-erotic spoof Das Boot is not lacking in filthy interrogations of wholesome American spy-girls:

what foul secrets are hidden up her derriere? a cavity search will show

she looks really juicy inside her anus after you open it up with an anal spreader

Artwork is by Eromaxi. The anal spreader? It’s a real thing.

Playing “Guess The Penis”

In that part of the world back then before television, they used to play a seriously kinky version of blind man’s bluff:

Stealing Doesn’t Pay

What happens to rent-hungry San Francisco girl Jodi Taylor when she steals cash and data from the wealthy industrialist the maid-service sent her to? Hiding under the bed is her first impulse when he comes home unexpectedly, but it does not work:

hiding under his bed

handcuffed to his bed

confronted with the evidence of her theft and tied naked in the boiler room

Images are from a recent shoot at Sex And Submission.
