Sam Sugar asks Google to allow the adult entertainment industry to use its upcoming transaction service, which he argues would bring stability and safety to the online porn industry, and give Google a huge edge over PayPal.

The benefit to Google he says, would be much like it was to VHS over Betamax; the porn biz does so many mega-billions of business that the revenues would dwarf what PayPal is pulling in.

PayPal stopped allowing adult transactions just before it got bought by eBay, and the porn industry has been hurting for it. It is hard to find electronic banks willing to work with XXX companies, because of a large risk of “chargebacks”, where a customer cancels a transaction, claiming it wasn’t them. They could really use a major reputable payment system, and if eBay / PayPal won’t do it, perhaps Google should. Its an interesting arguement, and it will be interesting to see how Google ackowledges the adult entertainment industry when its financial system launches.
