Low and High Porn Technologies: From Gloryholes to Live Cams

brooklyn jade gloryhole

It is pretty common knowledge in the tech community that many of the advances we have today have been made possible by the porn industry. When we think of the growth of home video technologies from the VRC and VHS to DVDs, they were able to grow like they did because of porn.

But, while porn has been a leader in the high-tech realm, one doesn’t always need the latest technology to get off. Sometimes the lowest-tech possible can be the hottest. And what is lower-tech than a hole in the wall?

The Gloryhole (low-tech)

If anonymous sex is what you desire than nothing is more anonymous than you not seeing the person that you are fucking and them not seeing you. However, unless you both wear blindfolds, the best – and much easier way – to accomplish this feat is to be separated from your partner in copulation by a wall (with a hole in it). And there we have the gloryhole.

While many people think of a gloryhole as nothing but an urban legend, those people would be wrong. I am going to be honest with all of you and tell you that I have never personally used a gloryhole. But I have seen them and I have witnessed them being used. Another myth I can dispel is those that think gloryholes are only used by gay men.

Yes, the gloryhole has had its major use and growth in the gay community, but again, using myself as an example, it was in a straight sexual environment that I had my run in with the gloryholes. And if you look at porn these days the gloryhole is a niche that straight porn has really rolled with.

Just head over to the biggest porn site review site on the internet, Rabbits Reviews and type “gloryhole” in to the search box. What comes up is mostly straight sites. Maybe that is because we, as straight folks, don’t have as much experience with them in our sexual communities so the fantasy about them is stronger and therefore porn sites have evolved to quench those fantasies.

The point is that the most basic of perverted technology – a wall and a hole – can be just as arousing and pornographically pleasing as the most advanced tech. Which brings us to the Live Cams.

Live Cams (high-tech)

While gloryholes have been around for at least decades – probably centuries – the possibility of sitting in your house and being able to see someone live on video from somewhere else in the world is a rather new phenomenon. And what is even newer is the ability to do it well.

Anyone who tried to live video chat (perverted or not) back in the day knows that, while it was technically possible, it wasn’t the most pleasant of experiences. Your internet connections weren’t always the quickest and even the cameras themselves weren’t of the highest definition. But that has pretty much all changed!

Today almost every laptop and most desktop computers you buy come with built in cameras that are already pretty good and there are HD webcams on the market that are great should you want to upgrade. Even our smartphones have cams built in that allow for pretty nice-looking images for live cam conversations.

Add to that the growth of high speed internet, and the increasing speeds of said internet, and you are ready for some hot and high-quality live sex cam fun.

Again I headed over to Rabbits Reviews and checked out their Live Cam category and if you do the same you will find plenty of suggestions. Some are more expensive, some are cheaper. Some feature mostly amateur girls and others have big name pornstars appearing. Take some time to read the pros and cons of different sites and then go check them out for yourself. It is often free to give them a look so all it will cost you is a little time.

The Tech of Anonymity

So, looking back on our discussion today we have gone from the most low-tech sex/porn/perve equipment ever (a hole in a wall) to the most high-tech (the ability to video chat in HD with anyone anywhere in the world). But what do they have in common – besides the obvious porn aspect? Anonymity!

When you or I or anyone chats with a performer on a live cam site we are having someone help get us off without them ever knowing who we are. This is different from porn magazines or videos because the girl or guy or tranny on the other side of the camera is live and interacting with us in real time without knowing who we are – just like someone on the other side of a gloryhole.

Check out Go Nude Cams as an example and you will find babes of all shapes and sizes and genres just waiting for someone to take them for some private time. They want to chat and listen and do what turns you on. You want to see them finger their pussy while in a doggy-style position well they will do it. You want to see them just play with their tits – go ahead and ask, etc.

Yes, you can usually go cam2cam with the performer should you decide to remove that cloak of anonymity. But that is your decision. Just like you could walk around to the other side of the wall and see who is on their knees sucking your dick and reveal yourself to them as well.

Technology changes and improves but horny humans will always find a way to find what they want with what is available. When it comes to live sexual interaction there are lots of ways to go about it and lots of places to find it. But if you are looking for the thrill of total anonymity then you are probably going to want to find a gloryhole or an adult live cam site.

Remember, as with anything else though, there is proper etiquette when it comes to gloryholes:
