The GoPro is for porn, obviously

For some reason, GoPro didn’t want to comment on Fast Company’s story on porn usecases…

If anything, amateur porn-makers have been even more enthusiastic in adopting the GoPro. Men tend to go the head-mounted route, offering an even more realistic version of the porn genre’s ever-popular point-of-view shoots. Some canny homemade porn creators have exploited the GoPro’s slow-mo capability to share excruciatingly detailed ejaculation shots. Many videos, with titles like, “Multiple uses for a GoPro…,” take obvious delight in appropriating this mainstream technology for naughty purposes. And, indeed, why else explicitly advertise the name of the camera?

The story’s your typical “look, I’m on a porn set”, but it’s always interesting to hear how technology’s being used in ways you wouldn’t expect.
