I have been following the industries rants on tube sites of late. It is true that tube sites generally use undocumented (2257) and stolen content but I was in the local video store recent;y and something popped into my mind.
I will use my own southernbukkake site as an example.
Lets say I like bukkake videos and I have my choice of buying an American Bukkake Video for 30 bucks, renting it for 5 bucks or joining southernbukkake for 26 bucks.
If I buy the American bukkake Video I get two Bukkakes , DVD quality video that plays on my computer or in my DVD player. or I rent it and get the same thing but I have to take it back in two days.
If I join southernbukkake.com for 26 bucks I get over 100 bukkakes all the newest in bluray hidef, all in DVD quality and all playable on any divx, bluray or H.264 based player including xbox360, playstation 3 and most bluray DVD players. I own them forever.
I get a feeling the web model of adult sites is what is doing in porn more than the tube sites, it’s like buying the newest release from private and they send you all the previous releases. A lot more bang for the buck.
So ya Tube sites might be slurping away some money I suspect that they are only a fraction of the real problem facing Porn Valley
