VCRs, streaming media, all these were brought into the mainstream thanks to the efforts of the industrious pornographers of the world.
Now, those scampish folks are tackling another bane of the world: unwanted gift cards. Via the Huffington Post:
Naughty America is offering access to its dozens of online porn sites in exchange for your unused gift cards. That means you can turn in that Barnes & Noble gift card — come on, you weren't going to use it anyway — and get “more than 5,000 porn videos and 2,000 porn stars, including popular models such as Lisa Ann, Nikki Benz, Julia Ann, Phoenix Marie, Tasha Reign, Brandi Love and Emma Starr,” according to Naughty America founder Andreas Hronopoulos.
Good stuff. Fuck reading. Let's watch PORN instead. The list of gift cards you can convert into racy videos (like a smut-peddling King Midas) is LONG: iTunes; Best Buy; Bed, Bath and Beyond; and of course, Starbucks, among others.
The going exchange rate is $15 for a 16-day pass, but a $100 card Best Buy card will get you a full year (sliding scale, not all exchanges are 1-1 (at least I don't think. I didn't check)).
