Despite rumours of being close to bankruptcy, the company featured what it claims to be the first augmented reality porn app in the world, allowing users of the app to take selfies with famous pornstars.

Naughty America was the only porn company allowed into the show floor at CES 2018, the big tech trade show in Las Vegas last week. For the second year in a row, the company demonstrated its virtual reality porn experiences. I met with Ian Paul, chief technology officer at Naughty America, to talk about how porn continues to lead technologies such as blockchain.

The company’s booth showed off a new alternative point-of-view VR view where you see the, uh, action from the female’s point of view. The San Diego company also showed off a new camera rig for shooting VR scenes, and it displayed for the first time an augmented reality app that lets you pose with your favorite porn star.

The AR app, which is still in the works, will capture an image of a porn star. You can take that image and, through the camera view of your smartphone, place the porn star in a setting in the real world. You can then take a selfies with the porn star and share them on social media. It’s actually a “safe for work” image since Paul said the company is trying to get the app into the app stores, which have strict rules on porn.

The Naughty America AR app highlights the problem facing augmented reality porn – how will consumers get it onto their smartphone when adult apps are banned in both Android and Apple?

The adult version of the CES begins tomorrow, and hopefully we might get some answers to this question, or at least other companies revealing plans for augmented reality xxx. Don’t get too excited if that’s the case though – last year webcam company CamSoda promised live holographic shows coming soon, and yet even their virtual reality cam shows seem to have been abandoned since then.
