VR and might be immersive, but let's talk serious: what will be the future of pornography?

Old folks had their wood carvings of bestiality and stories.

Japan brought hentai and America brought the furry to really get anthropomorphic pseudo gender-sexed beings going in my parents lifetime.

With the internet we get MSpaint Autismo stuff and Patreon might be a donation system which won't end up getting shut down for the most part, so weirdo fetishes and some of the more "obscene" should be sticking around (as well as decreases for the costs of hosting and distributing files and whatnot)

Will lolicon/shotacon finally end up being thought policed out of existence?

I've personally seen a growth in outfit porn, but that seems to just be morphing through fads as opposed to a "core" sustainable fetish. Violence is still repulsive to most people though there seems to be enough of us unphased people that yukkuri/fluffy/guro/etc keeps marching on and mutating.

i don't know about that.. maybe if we completely restructured the way we take care of children in our society (or made everyone sterile lol). but that would require something like cooperation, and you know how that is. definitely need to change the way we perceive it though (imo it should be a tool for reproduction, but i understand how people don't like that idea and i think those people are slaves to the flesh, but hey. running off that thought, wouldn't it be great if we just made our children in labs instead? come at me scifi authors)

I wonder how much the "weird" shit will be affected. I mean, you could probably satisfy any fantasy like necrophilia with fake sex. You can do it IRL but with consequences. I think it will be banned for a long time and black markets will host it and eventually it will be legalized but you will be listed on some registry for participating in it. Kinda like how Britain has opt-in for adult websites or whatever.

Are you old enough to remember when the internet first became popular? Legislation moves very slowly so we are only now starting to see laws about some aspects of digital culture. People have been freely exchanging insane porn from the beginning and I don't think anyone is going to stop any futuristic porn from being distributed either.

we are all free thinkers and futurism is a general term in that the future is ahead of us... we may not all agree on where it should go but we all might have a solution to the problems already existing..

i just curious on yours...

the war in the middle east.. take the biggest problem areas - build a secure temorary encampment out of the area

allow the people in - search them as they come in and as they go out (no messages) keep an eye on them... this is for their own saftey.. the peaceful ones who just born in the wrong place in the wrong era

all the ones that want out out? good - surround cities / areas - one final clear message - if you remain here you will die, if you flee without surrender - you will most likely die

blow the cities up - rebuild safe secure zones.. these people are nuts to us and to other countries around the world... we maintain control.. we're already sitting over there anyways might as well put used to the damn shit

and if it was about oil now we have territory there this is our territory we own this thus we can have anything on the ground too...

IP Address: intcraft.online
Server Version: 1.8.8 (any client from 1.8, 1.9 or 1.10 can join the server.)
Chien's World Map cropped to Eurasia
Towny, Brewery, meme recipes, word filter and more..
RP and General Rules
Contrary to previous iterations we will now state the actual rules for the server in a clear way, pre-launch. In theory, as always, there is only one rule: Don’t be a shitter. If you follow this set of rules, you are thereby not a shitter and you are in theory allowed to do what you want on Intcraft, and it will be up to the server population and community to put an end to their own disputes.
Towny War Flag will only be enabled from Friday-Sunday, from Monday-Thursday it will be disabled. PvP will always be enabled.
First 24 hours after launch will have War Flag disabled
Building a town/nation must be historically accurate for that location given the current time (300bc-300ad)
Buildings do not have to be 100% accurate, variations are allowed. But no memes.
Towns do not have to be exactly in the same geographical location as they were, but it should be in the same general area.
If you only want to pvp, find a pvp server
If you only want to buildfag, join a nation or get gud.
Nations can spread through conquest or diplomacy, but no Atlantic Federation tier memes.

>>What do you guys think about this?
It's our only hope for the future and he's one of the only MFs working on it, more power to him.
>>Think he's being too optimistic with his timeline?
Yes, I think 2030 is probably the earliest we would see a practical launch from this project. On the other hand, the 100 year colonization timeline assumes we don't develop any better space vehicles during that time period, so that will probably be shorter.
>>Think he will even be able to get the funding?
Yes, $15 billion for a guy with his connections over the course of 10 years is nothing. But, I seriously doubt it will only cost that much. It seems like all his calculations are about the transportation system. The cost of the actual colony will likely be 10-100x as much.

>What do you guys think about this?
Good but I still think there are many things left to do in LEO before truly setting out to sea. We are missing key production in orbit and around the Moon. Right now the only way to get there is capsules and rockets. Expensive and uses a lot of material. Some infrastructure to build ships in orbit would make this colony feat more attainable by lowering hte materials and cost needed. By forgoing the launch and parking orbit stage the fuel saved could probably send a second ship at the same time.

>>Think he's being too optimistic with his timeline?
The only way to get these space things done is to just do it. If you can get to the moon with the computing power of a 15 year old nokia cell phone you can probably play around safely in system.

>>Think he will even be able to get the funding?
When it comes to space funding is the least important part. NASA has achieved a lot with only .05% of all nation wide taxes going to space things of all types, not just launches. I think a dude with a largely succesful empire has the best chance of doing these things. The man has the drive, the will.

Yeah from what I've gathered that's basically all that he's planning here, is that he will have the transportation method ready to go in 10 years. Now all the rest of starting a colony on Mars is a whole other story.
I feel like Elon Musk will be the pioneer that gets stuff like this started. I just hope that whoever picks it up after he's gone will put in as much work as he has, and probbaly will put into this project (colonizing Mars).
I feel like he's at the precipice, but the implementation, which Elon Musk may not even be around for, is where the real effects on humanity and our future will be decided.

I think it's great that there is someone taking the public initiative to get this idea out there. Mars would make a great pet colony planet as a test ground for future colonisation efforts beyond our solar system. I also think the technology that's going to come out of the research for the initial project is going to benefit us in a number of ways, such as the transport systems, structural materials, energy generation and efficiency, etc.

I think he's being a bit optimistic with that timeline though. This is going to need support and preparation on international levels and that won't be happening soon with all the generic human crap going on in the world. I reckon late 2030's, early 2040's to be more realistic. As far as the funding is concerned, private investors and megacorporations looking for branding and exposure would hop on this without much convincing needed considering the long term benefits.

There will be different grade of meat.
  • vintage beef - cow fed and raised in old style livestock
  • trans beef - fish genetically modified to grow cow meat on fish, much cheaper to raise gene-hacked fish that fit in volumetric 3d tank than in 2d field or multi-floor factory-farm
  • cultured beef - cow cells grown in a vat, may be part of robot-cow to exercise the meat tissue to give it texture
