When it comes to the wild west known as the World Wide Web, new technologies always appear to have some relationship with porn. Every virtual invention seems to either start with porn in mind…or end up there, thanks to the wild mind of some young and perverted entrepreneur. But it’s not surprising, being that pornography is a multi-billion dollar industry.
Enter “Pornostagram.” You guessed it–it’s an Instagram for porn. Basically, it’s a web app that allows its users to share naked selfies with their followers, and it comes complete with “filters” for supposed extra privacy protections. You can watch French Pornostagram founder Quentin Lechemia wax poetic about his invention here, and learn all about how he found his niche after being shocked to discover that Instagram actually had anti-porn protections in place. Oh, bummer.
Yet, despite the name of the app, the man behind it doesn’t consider all of this to be porn, per se. “It’s not the porn industry. It’s just normal people who want to share about sex. That’s it,” says Lechemia. He likens sharing a naked picture of yourself to sharing a picture of a pizza. Sure, that’s the exact same thing, sir.
So, what do you think? Will you bare it all for Pornostagram, or has social networking gone a bit too far with this one? Comment below…preferably while clothed.

"Mattera names names—and frauds, schemes and grifters to boot."
