One statistic you may have heard being thrown around is that around 30% of all internet traffic is used for seeking out and sharing pornography.

Now, while 30% might be a little exaggerated (the actual figure is closer to 10%), this is still an incredible statistic. However, when we dig a little deeper into the numbers, we find that most porn viewers aren’t visiting official websites of stars of purchasing the professional videos. Instead, we find that the majority of traffic is to personal social media accounts like Snapchat.

Snapchat has become something of a haven for pornstars to sell themselves on, and consumers are flogging to them by the millions. But what is it that makes pornstar Snapchat accounts, like those found on TrueSnaps, better then regular porn?


The reason why pornstar’s Snapchat accounts are much more active than their official websites is because it’s a lot less effort. Imagine how long it takes to film, edit, upload and advertise a 30-minute film on a website, then compare that with a quick 10-second Snapchat clip which is filmed and instantly uploaded to millions of people?

If you’re lucky, your favorite pornstar will release a new official video once every two weeks. So, when compared with Snapchat’s daily updates, it’s not difficult to see why people choose this instead. It’s make the creating and consuming of explicit content much easier for both parties.

They’re more intimate

It’s no secret that a lot of professional porn videos follow a basic format. There’s usually some unrealistic storyline, followed by bad acting, and then going through the tried-and-tested sex positions. That’s it. By now, we’ve all become pretty bored of the formula.

By contrast, Snapchat content is short and to-the-point. It features real life women in real life scenarios, showing off their sexy selves without any kind of overproduction or forced acting involved. Snapchat allows pornstars to show off their true colors, which a lot of their fans find much sexier than a director telling them how to act and how loud to scream.

Private shows

Camming is a huge part of the porn business. Even high profile stars like Jayden James and Madison Ivy will do the occasional cam show in order to provide themselves more revenue. With Snapchat’s ease of reaching millions of people every day, it’s no surprise that pornstars have found a way to capitalize on this.

Quite often pornstars will post a link to an exclusive cam session with them which is only available to their Snapchat followers – usually done as a gesture of thanks to their paying fans. While it require using an outside program to view the camshow, it will still be exclusive content only targeted towards Snapchat users.

Personalized interaction

When it comes to professional porn, it’s usually a case of you simply pressing play and consuming whatever the content happens to be. However, Snapchat allows a level of involvement which traditional porn isn’t able to provide.

If you have access to a star’s exclusive content, sending a message to them will usually yield a response. By the same token, it allows you to make requests from your star which they’re usually more than happy to oblige with, given how simple it is to create Snapchat content.

3.) Self-Protection

The epitome of the issue is that no one knows really how to properly operate superintelligent machines. Most people just assume they will not hurt us or even be grateful for us, however, crucial research done by A.I. scientist Steve Omohundro implies that they will inherit essential drives. Whether their job is to pick stocks, mine asteroids, or control our critical infrastructure of energy and water, they’ll start to show signs of being self-protective and they will look for resources to help better complete their tasks. They’ll go to war with us in order to survive, and they won’t be able to be turned off. Omohundro’s study results with the fact that the drives of superintelligent machines will be on a parallel path with the path of humanity unless we take the time to take specific notes on every nut and bolt when designing them. We are correct to ask the same question that Stephen Hawking asked, “So, facing possible futures of incalculable benefits and risks, the experts are surely doing everything possible to ensure the best outcome, right?” The answer is actually, not right. With only a couple of exceptions, they’re creating products, not discovering logic and safety. Within the next decade or so, artificial intelligence-advanced objects are estimated to create trillions of dollars in financial income. Some tiny part of that should probably be invested in the logic of autonomous machines, solving the A.I. control issue and making sure humans will thrive in a world like this.

2.) Robots Will Learn to Program Themselves

Won’t it be long until a mentally active machine learns the process of A.I. research and development? In one other way,  HAL, the fun-loving robot might be able to learn how to program himself to be more intelligent in an increasingly rising age increasing bicentennial intelligence That’s the nutshell version of a theory called the “intelligence explosion,” which was created back in the 1960s by the British mathematician I.J. Good. At that time, Good was researching early artificial neural networks, which is the basis for “deep learning” strategies that are causing an uproar today, about 50 years after the fact. He thought that self-improving machines would become just as smart, and then even smarter than us humans. These robots would rescue mankind by solving impossible epidemics, like disease, famine, and war. Closer to the end of his life, Good changed his ways. He was scared that global competition would force nations to invent superintelligence without any thoughts of safety necessities in the process. And like Stephen Hawking, Stuart Russell, Elon Musk, Bill Gates and Steve Wozniak, Good was scared that it would wipe out humanity.

1.) No One Knows How to Control a Superintelligent Machine.

Stephen Hawking elegantly caught exactly what the problem was when he stated that, in the short term, A.I.’s effect is reliant on who is operating it. However, in the long term, it relies on whether the machine can be controlled at all. Regarding the short-term element, Hawking essentially notes that A.I. happens to be a “dual-use” technology, an expression that is used to explain machines able to create great good and great harm. Nuclear fission, which is the science behind nuclear bombs and power plant reactors, is a “dual use” machine. Since dual-use machines are only as dangerous as their users intend for them to be, one could only wonder what the harmful effects of A.I. could be…
