The 2018 Predictions We Came Up With:

And now it’s time for the 2018 adult industry / Camland predictions. We discuss a lot, but the main points are highlighted below. These predictions represent the majority of the opinion from the people in the hangouts. Not necessarily the opinions of everyone.


2018 will be the year of the BBW Model!

BBW is already a popular category, and multiple people think that BBW will continue to trend. It seems like mainstream is even starting to trend away from the tall and skinny models to more curvy and voluptuous models.


Giantess and Vore Fetishes Will Also Continue Growing

It was also predicted that giantess as well as gore fetishes will also continue to grow in 2018. In earlier years, giantess was one of the largest growing fetishes, and it continues to grow. Vore is a fetish that often-times fits into giantess and it’s predicted that it’ll grow with it.


Social Media Will Continue Pushing Adult Away

Social media and other networks have continuously getting stricter with adult content and adult performers. Twitter and Tumblr both got stricter and Patreon gave adult the boot. It’s predicted this trend will continue, and we might loose some networks like Onlyfans.


Snapchat Is Going To Go Out Of Business

People are speculating that Snapchat might go out of business, or might get acquired by another company. Snapchat isn’t solvent and is losing money.


Will ManyVids Release Live Camming For All Models?

Everyone agreed that the MV Takeover isn’t performing as well as many people anticipated. Because of that, there’s reason for skepticism on whether or not it’ll be released to the entire model community.


More Producers Will Go G-Rated Fetish Content

It’s been predicted that more professional studios will catch on to the fetish trend and start catering to that crowd. A lot of the fetish stuff is non-nude / non-explicit. This trend might cross-over to the professional porn industry. It’s also speculated that this could have an impact on indie model profits on the various clip sites.


BitVids and Crypto-Currency

The conversation turns to BitVids (which seems like a fairly shady network, not even a 2257 Compliance Statement) and that turned the conversation to crypto-currency. There’s several “adult crypto currencies” promoting ICO and debuting. There’s some mixed emotion on crypto and it’s role in the industry.


Will NexoCams Succeed Or Crash?

The majority believe that NexoCams will fail. CamYou also hasn’t found success and Camgasm shut their doors. It seems like none of the big box sites are really doing good at launching new networks.
