Here are things you can currently buy with Bitcoin: a boob job, a Lamborghini, and a man to strip for you. You can now add amateur fetish porn to that list.
XXX Watch It Now is a month-old Bitcoin-only amateur fetish porn site. On XBIZ, one of the site’s creators, Master Fet, explained Bitcoin is a more discreet way to purchase videos and provide payout, and that it can “revolutionize” the adult entertainment industry. Sites like Stripcoin.com already allow for discreet transactions and requests, but FetMeOver is giving the content users and sellers more control over the material, and how they distribute it.
Via email, Master Fet said his brother, who goes by the name Gimp Man, “was informed by his coworker about the burgeoning adult fetish clip business taking place on the web. After thoroughly researching the marketplace, he found the technological prowess of these websites lacking and believed he could do one better.”
Indeed, FetMeOver is quite easy to navigate, especially if you have a specific fetish in mind. On r/Bitcoin last month, Master Fet asked for feedback on the site, and commented that paying for porn “only really applies to extremely kinky material,” before linking to the Alexa stats of their biggest competitor, clips4sale.com.
He goes on to say they’ve “created a plethora of features unseen anywhere else in the industry, including an integrated chat and mail system for content sellers to effectively communicate with their audience and other sellers. There is a public request system for customers to up vote, down vote, and create custom clip requests for content sellers to fulfill. FetMeOver also hosts a news feed that allows customers or even sellers to follow other sellers’ profiles and receive live updates straight to their FetMeOver homepage.”
It’s a bit like Facebook for fetishes. Through March 1, Master Fet and Gimp Man are allowing performers to collect on 100 percent of the site’s revenue.
“We believe bitcoins, and digital currency in general, holds great promise to innovate not only the adult industry, but perhaps the way the world understands and uses currency as a whole,” he said, adding that certain niches like erotic hypnosis and sleeping fetish are currently outlawed by Visa and Mastercard.
“If we are caught selling this content on our website, we could lose our license to accept credit cards. After months of researching, we could not find a single reason why they would not allow this content. Our beliefs are that they do not truly understand the fetish and the content that is created for it. All actors are conscious and perfectly aware that they are on camera; nothing is done unconsciously, and everything is simulated.”
If fetish sites run on requests, FetMeOver’s certainly put all the control in their users’ hands. After March 1st, sellers will get 80 percent commission on each sale.
“We have needed to educate some users about Bitcoin and why we accept it,” he added,“ but that is to be expected from such a nascent currency.”
