The day of interactive porn has arrived, all thanks to Steve Jobs. The iPhone 4's new video-call feature, FaceTime, enables users to have live video chat sessions over a Wi-Fi network, via the iPhone's camera and screen. Unsurprisingly, the porn industry was immediately inspired.

Ca-Ching! Get your credit card ready...

Daily Mail reports:

"In the 1970s, the demand for explicit videos at home helped VCRs become widespread, and the industry was the first to embrace DVDs, too. Internet porn sites were some of the first to make wide use of streaming video and online credit card payments.

'The first time someone created a camera there was someone who said, 'Wouldn't it be good for someone to take off their clothes in front of this camera?'' said Michael Gartenberg from Interpret, a media research company.

For years, cameras mounted on computers have helped connect people for racy online video sessions. But the portability and privacy of a mobile phone makes FaceTime a new frontier for the industry."

However, apparently not all the bugs have been resolved conceptually:

"One obstacle is that the iPhone 4 camera was designed specifically for face-to-face chatting.

'You can have the phone on your face, or other body parts, but not both at the same time,' said Teagan Presley (pictured above), who acts in adult films and performs in video chats.

'Most customers want the full package, and it's going to be difficult holding a phone.'"

In Apple's tradition of keeping it clean, it's only a matter of time before the plug is pulled.
