CSS porn and sex research

Well I have read many articles talking about how the porn industry is always ahead of everyone else in most technologies and adapting it. That to me translates that that there are many users out there who are eager to adapt new technologies in order to view porn, and it would seem that in an industry full of competition, that it would be a viable way to find examples of well used CSS for great visual impact.

Unfortunately, my finding on the first few pages of Google did not help too much in this area. It seems that a porn company called Vivid has done a press release about new porn downloads, and this incorporates some kind of content scrambling system (think scrambled pay channels on cable or the dish). So the search results are filled with things about that or some sites with css info that have been commented with porn. I did find a few interesting sites though.

Not really looking for porn, but for CSS layouts and tricks; that’s a good thing too, because the Google results didn’t bring up much porn, it seems that the Google page rank thing gives more weight to techies, nerds and national news sources, thinking that they are the authorities on what everyone is looking for. That’s great when I am looking for the slanted news edited and cranked out by the powers that be, or trying to find some long text filled tutorial, but I digress.

Very interesting notes about using images and css, but consider the accessibility and the possible flaws in using css backgrounds for important content – http://24ways.org/advent/naughty-or-nice-css-background-images

A web developer gets a job doing a gay porn site, and considers using xhtml, css and other accessibility options when creating it – interesting story –

A css resource age that likens plain html to a naked site making it less classy than one wearing the “clothes” of css – http://www.aglasshalffull.org/css-resources/The-CSS-Resources-Intro-Page.htm

perhaps the most surprising, an article on blind accessible porn:

One thought on “CSS porn and sex research”

  1. Interesting that you were doing the same research as I, albeit looking for info in a slightly different manner 😉 I have been considering a new layout for my sex chat web site and thinking about using all css for the background and sidebar images / formatting. I really like when blogs use css to make boring text look great. If you find any porn sites with hot layouts using css please post and let me know!
