The pornographic knockoff of YouTube, a secretive Web site called YouPorn, is causing a reduction in adult DVD sales due to its increasing popularity. Amateurs are taking over as the YouPorn audience continues to grow quickly. The adult-entertainment industry is taking a huge hit and Hollywood is feeling the consequences. DVD sales are at an all time low with the availability and ease of using free sources. YouPorn allows its users to upload and watch unlimited videos for free. The selection is not limited and users can find virtually anything they desire.
YouPorn mimics YouTube by having a wide range of footage, from grainy amateur clips to professional products. YouPorn is the number 1 adult site in the world and its overall rank is higher than CNN.com, About.com and Weather.com. Stephen Paul Jones is the owner of the site and recently paid a visit to Vivid Entertainment Group, the largest producer of adult videos, to discuss Vivid purchasing YouPorn. Vivid mogul, Steve Hirsch, met with Jones to discuss details. Jones vision is to turn YouPorn into a brand; like the Virgin of adult entertainment. With the site’s large amount of traffic, there are huge opportunities to make up for the decline of DVD sales by integrating itself with new companies and projects.
