i have often espoused the fact that porn is the one thing that drives technology forward
Perhaps this is why the take up for the otherwise amazing Kindle has been fairly slow. There is a parsimonious amount of porn on there and what there is, is pretty lame, of the line drawn variety that the weirdo kids at school used to do in the back of their maths books.
In one of those strange impossible to foretell twists there is one area of porn however, in which the Kindle is absolutely smashing it, and this is one that i am not so familiar with. Erotic literature for women.
The 10 best selling current ebooks are all erotic fiction!! That’s crazy. There isn’t even one sexy book for women in the whole top 100 of paperbacks.
Of course this all makes sense, buying dirty books on the kindle means you don’t have to suffer the ignominity of handing over cash in smiths for tatty smut, nor do you have to reveal your choice of literature on the tube in the morning.
So this means that ebook development is being pushed forward steadily by its huge fan base of women with wandering fingers. Now you know why it’s so easy to turn pages on the Kindle using only one hand.
