The Truth About Adult TikTok

With major adult industry leaders jocking for position in the new adult TikTok space, it’s hard to know which adult TikTok apps are worth your time. Here’s the truth about the adult TikTok versions hitting the market soon.

The Truth About Adult TikTok

As a history major in college, one of my favorite professors was Mr. Alfred Kinsey. He was very into the ever-so-fragile topic of “coital frequency” (having sex more than once a week). When he presented his findings on human mating rituals to his class in 1948, he stood on a desk and towered over his little grad students who peppered him with questions, which he fielded. He also wore a fedora and would play some variation of “He’s a real sport!” by Connie Francis on his portable record player. As time went on, my own budding sex life found a lot of disappointment in short-term hookups who failed to live up to those expectations and continued to fail to carry out their side of the original hookup agreement.

Why the Adult TikTok market is still booming

When Snapchat started to become mainstream, its stock rose quickly, but its identity wasn’t fully defined. However, with TikTok, TikTok Inc. has carefully chosen people like Judy Greer and Kate Upton as TikTok ambassadors and is bringing in paid content to the app. Snapchat had never tried to gain the $1 billion it sought, so it wasn’t clear what TikTok users would actually want. It turns out that they are clearly interested in pop culture, music and a wide range of lifestyle content. Who are the top players in the adult TikTok market? While major artists and brands have gained steam, the adult TikTok apps are still surging with users. With most of them available in the App Store or Play Store, download numbers can be tracked on the respective apps themselves.

The Truth About Adult TikTok and why you should care

Adult TikTok apps aren’t new. For years, users could upload and watch videos of nudes, sex tapes, and porn in the younger-skewing teen version of TikTok called TikTok Kids. When Apple and Google recently instituted stricter rules against adult content, it looked like that time had finally come to an end. But some leading adult content producers have now launched their own adult versions of TikTok. The big ones have been launched by Pornhub, AdultSwim, and iHorny. They’re getting ready to go live soon and the names of the other adult TikTok apps launching soon are coming out. Adult Swim and VIZ Media are releasing their own adult TikTok apps soon, while Bustle is said to be close to releasing one as well.

The Truth About Adult TikTok and what you should be doing about it

Adult versions of the Google-owned video sharing site have arrived to much surprise, with major adult industry brands such as Hitcents and Chaturbate jumping in on the action. But what makes these TikTok apps legitimate adult video channels and should you be in on the action? Well, it is true that TikTok has an adult user base, and these apps have taken advantage of this with the many parody apps that have surfaced to try and reach the TikTok users looking to get the famous booty pop dance. Some even have questionable content on them, like Pornhub’s TikTok parody, called TikTok X Pornhub, which only gained around 8,000 views on YouTube. Some of the adult-themed TikTok spinoffs can be found here.

Conclusion

The truth is out there. Whether it’s because Hollywood hates the success of Candy Crush and Pokémon Go, or there’s a wave of nostalgia for the apps from a certain period of time, we’re starting to see a market for adult-themed TikTok apps. In other words, if you’re looking for TikTok apps for the adults in your life, you’re going to have to dig.

Interview with AMEX

Tens of thousands of people are descending on Austin, Texas, this weekend for South by Southwest (or SXSW for those in the know), a nine-day stretch of festivals and conferences designed to highlight the hottest new entrants in the world of music, film, and technology.

Dozens of tech startups launch every year at SXSW Interactive, the technology portion of the event (March 8-12) and usually one or two stand out from the crowd. (Foursquare launched there in 2009, and now has 20 million users.)

Now everyone wants to know what the next Foursquare or Twitter will be. We caught up with the founders of two startups, Jake Banks of Hater and Praneeth Patlola and Zack Biderman of Jobhuk, to learn more about their imminent SXSW launches. Could they be this year’s breakout stars?

Tell us about your companies.
Jake Banks:
 Hater is an app that functions just like Instagram, except instead of posting things you like, you post things you hate. Friends can follow you and hate what you hate too. The app [still pending Apple App Store approval] allows you to pull photos off the Web, filter your photos, then write text on pictures expressing your hatred for things like politicians, traffic jams and annoying celebrities.

Praneeth Patlola: Jobhuk is a crowdsourcing platform designed to help employers find the best prospects for jobs by offering a finder’s fee to anyone who refers them to the successful candidate. Anyone can respond, not just recruiters, and share job postings with their social networks. The service is designed to make it easy and profitable to post and refer people to jobs.
Why do you think your company will shine among so many other startup launches?

JB: Hater is just a great idea. It is a very simple idea and one that is needed in the social media landscape. There is nothing like it.

Zack Biderman: We have a great way to monetize our company [employers pay Jobhuk when a job is landed]. A lot of entrepreneurs have good ideas and users, but don’t have ways to make money. We will be making money from day one.

Are you nervous about launching your company at such a massive event?
JB: Nah, I’m not nervous; I’m excited. I just want to see how people will use the app, how people will react to it.
PP: We are excited, especially about the crowd at SXSW. Most people will be early adopters. They are looking for early stage startups, so it is a perfect place for us to be.

Other than launching your company, what else do you want to get out of SXSW?
JB:
 My goal is to make people aware of the app, the brand, what we are about and what Hater does. I’d also like to meet people who can help me develop the product. I’m looking to bring on an international team to build out the platform in Europe.

ZB:
 Our goal is to get as many employers to post as many jobs as possible during the festival. As soon as we have that, we think the popularity of the service will spread.

 

What advice can you offer other entrepreneurs launching at a big event like SXSW?
JB:
 Try not to plan every day down to the minute. Some of the best meetings you will have will be in the elevator of a hotel. Don’t be stressed to meet all the right people.

ZB:
 Be receptive to feedback. It’s always good to refine your story.
