NSFW Gaming: Adult Industry and Video Gaming Trends 

Video games and porn are synonymous these days. Adult studios and content creators produce porn that highlights the fetishization of particular protagonists in modern video games through cosplay and kink content.

 

And creators aren’t just making sexy spoofs of Super Mario. The adult entertainment industry has always been on the cutting edge of technological developments. In fact, current developments in internet connectivity are tied to combinations of video game and adult industry focused products and services. One developer, known as qdot, recently enabled smart sex toys to control the game Elden Ring — a AAA video game release on Play Station and Xbox. But, that doesn’t mean everyone should be going out to buy a smart butt plug to play an RPG. Instead, as this blog post hints at, you should consider the scope of gaming and the adult industry and how these verticals have grown into a viable money-making enterprise for cam models and adult film stars across the world. Consider some of these trends. 

 

Adult Live Streaming and Gaming

 

If you’re in touch at all with today’s trends for adult and mainstream content creators, live streaming is a great way to monetize an audience and their interactions. The current rendition of live streaming harkens to days of the old internet when the most advanced live web camming sites were geared toward horny adults trying to survive with an antiquated dial-up modem. Decades later, the largest adult sites are properties like Cam4 or Chaturbate. At any point of day, there are thousands of creators performing on these sites for millions of users. 

 

Millions of dollars are paid out every month via model earnings and affiliate programs for webmasters. Adult camming has turned into its own cottage industry, by most counts, generating billions of dollars in economic activity globally. Camming is considered one of the most popular and fastest growing segments of the adult industry. And, a part of it all includes the niches of nude and sexually-driven adult video game live streaming. 

 

ePlay.com

 

One noteworthy player in the space that deals directly with the intersection of porn and video gaming is ePlay. This site is an all inclusive adult camming site that is also a video game-friendly environment. Models can earn on ePlay through quite traditional and competitive revenue models and affiliate marketing. But, what really makes ePlay stand out is the fact that the company embraces its identity as a kinky, sexy version of Twitch — Amazon’s multi-billion-dollar web streaming platform. 

 

In an interview with YNOTCam.com, the president and co-founder of ePlay told the interviewer that “We’re here building one of the safest & happiest communities in the adult entertainment industry.” The co-founder, Clement, has success with properties like Bang.com. Safe and happy indeed. 

 

Trans webcam model, porn star, tech guru, and friend of our Adult Site Broker Talk podcast (hosted by ASB founder Bruce), Ms. Julia Epiphany was named ePlay’s creator of the month in August of 2022. Julia told ePlay’s official blog that she has found success on ePlay through live gaming. 

 

“I used to work in the gaming industry about 15 years ago, so streaming games works well for me as a professional, an entrepreneur, and an adult star,” she said. “ePlay is perfect because it caters to adult stars that are also gamers!” Julia also noted that ePlay became a popular avenue to grow the professional adult business branding she earns through LinkedIn.

ManyVids

 

ManyVids.com is another platform that has a dedicated gaming category for its live camming options. As many know, ManyVids is a great platform for adult clip stores and fetish camming. But, in an effort to attract wider audiences, ManyVids started branding podcasting and live gaming as a method to monetize content and build a brand. Now, some of the top creators on the site are in the gaming category. The live streams vary from safe for work to not safe for work, can be used for individual clip sales, and creators have tools found on similar sites across the adult camming segment to track user engagement, audience trends, tips, and total earnings.

 

Chaturbate

 

Chaturbate, the largest adult live camming site on the web, also has an active live gaming community. Users can take in all the nude and naughty glory of their favorite cam girls while also enjoying a nude run-through of the latest first person shooter or a retro video game released on a video game console or PC. It’s not hard to find these streams. Just search the keywords and users will find their ideal broadcasts.

Twitch and Mainstream Sites

 

Twitch is a popular live streaming site that deals primarily with video game streaming and esports. 

 

As we said, it’s owned by Amazon and is considered the marquee of live gaming. Some of the highest earning streamers on Twitch make thousands of dollars in a single stream if they put in the time and hold their audience. Twitch is safe for work only, but several adult content creators actually got their starts in streaming on Twitch. Kaitlyn Siragusa, also known by her username Amouranth, is a wildly popular Twitch streamer who began her career as a content creator on the site doing gaming streams, ASMR, cosplaying, dancing, and porn. She has over 5.8 million fans on Twitch and over 108 million views on her YouTube channel. Amouranth made a name for herself in the OnlyFans-sphere and became one of the very first models on Playboy’s NSFW OnlyFans competitor platform, Centerfold. 

 

Social Media Networks 

 

Adult models like Amouranth use Twitch as a marketing channel and often list their safe for work options with their bio links. Twitch isn’t the only other option either. Virtually every major social media platform has a live stream option for content including gaming. Facebook Gaming is one such avenue for creators but, as is the case with Twitch, Facebook is very restrictive on porn and nudity. TikTok has a live function too. Also safe for work technically, TikTok has luckily become a popular tool for adult content creators to direct their traffic from vanilla content to spicier content. YouTube, the video behemoth owned by Google, has live streaming functions but is also, technically, safe for work when it comes to nudity and porn content. These sites, and more, are great avenues to market adult live gaming streams to broader audiences. Some of the most successful adult live gamers use a mixture of all of these platforms while also providing multichannel not safe for work content via tube sites, pay sites, more nudity friendly social networks like Twitter, fan sites, and profiles on premium social networks like OnlyFans. 

 

Nutaku and Adult Gaming Sites 

 

Lastly, we can’t forget to mention the entire segment of video games designed and marketed for adult users. Of course, a mainstream game like Call of Duty carries mature ratings and is marketed to mature audiences. That is the case for many games. But, there is still an entirely growing market when it comes to games that deal with BDSM, age play, furries, or some kink. 

 

Red Light Center is one of the longest running online adult virtual worlds where users can interact through a gaming environment. Launched in beta in 2005 and officially launched in 2006, Red Light Center is still supported and still sees a strong flow of reliable user traffic and revenue. It allows users to engage in sexual discovery and engage with others who are also interested in a particular sexual subject matter. Other sites are popular with some featuring arcades of flash games and platforms embedded on a landing page. 

 

Publishing on Nutaku

 

Nutaku is owned and operated as a content division of MindGeek — Pornhub.com’s parent company. Nutaku is a popular app store of adult sex and porn games that can be played on PC, Android, and iPhone. There are all sorts of titles and genres across the literal hundreds of games in its catalog. Titles like Project QT and Gay Harem are smash hits on Nutaku and feature millions of users. It’s quite impressive. Nutaku also enables player versus player online multiplayer gaming and micro transactions (in-app purchases) as a monetization model for game publishers. Nutaku is also a hell of a venue for adult gaming studios to flourish. 

 

For example, Gaming Adult is one of the publishers of games like Gay Harem, Hentai Heroes, and more. The company itself is technically an affiliate management firm granting affiliate marketers the opportunity to earn money from monetizing their adult content audiences through their games. It’s a huge network with over 15 million users registered across their games. Of which, their games are published and marketed through Nutaku. Gaming Adult also has YNOT Awards and GFY Awards for best gaming company of the year.
