Pornhub launches Snapchat rival that brings ‘augmented reality’ to sexting

Pornhub's launched its very own messaging app called TrickPics, but it's not like others.

Snapchat, along with Kik, has been the unofficial home of adult content and sexting on messenger apps for some time now. But that time could be coming to an end with the launch of TrickPics, backed by Pornhub.

Rather than slap its branding all over the app, Pornhub is taking a back seat on this one, which isn’t all that surprising given Apple and Google’s overly prudish attitude to adult content on Google Play and iTunes.

Instagram, Snapchat, Kik and all the other general messaging services, while widely used for sexting and sharing nude images, don’t officially allow it. That’s where TrickPics comes in, encouraging you to share naked snaps overlaid with images and filters, a la Snapchat. The ultimate aim, however, is to share a safe-for-work picture, Corey Price, VP of Pornhub said in a statement.

“Selfies have become a popular form of self-expression it today’s society. They are essentially the self-portrait of the digital age, capturing individuals in all their glory. There’s an assortment of poses that are now synonymous with the selfie, especially those that serve our vanity – you have the duck face, the bathroom pose, the obligatory gym pic, and, whether or not many of us want to admit it, the nude selfie,” said Corey Price, VP, Pornhub. “We are proud to announce our brand new app that provides graphic animation which overlays an image’s NSFW components to create a SFW, shareable image. Our fans can now share sexy pics with a twist, in a fun way that evokes their creativity.”

Whether or not that will actually happen is debatable, but the app is available to download on Android and iOS now via the links below.
