" What will be harder to do is to stand out from the fast swelling throng of similar sites. "

They say that you can easily have too much of a good thing. Many first-time tequila drinkers know this fact first-hand; as do adult affiliates facing a global glut of free porn.

Despite this hard-won knowledge, however, building another free adult website is as easy as ordering another margarita (especially when it is as simple as installing a script); but in both examples, the happiness of “having another one” may quickly fade into regret.

Take for example the growing wave of adult Pinterest knock-offs — among the most popular of webmaster fads since some guy pointed at YouTube and said, “We should do that with adult videos!”

Although it is doubtful that Pinterest clones will ever become as popular as tube sites, the current adult affiliate arena is wholeheartedly embracing them, saturating the market.

For example, current adult pin-boards include high-profile properties such as Sex.com and the newly launched Porntack.com; plus Pintease.com, Pornterest.net, Snatchly.com — the list goes on and is growing — as these next generation pic-posts take center stage.

The problem is that it is one thing to get girls to click on tasty pictures of cakes and candies all day, with legitimate users sharing their favorite images and developing a sense of community around themselves; and quite another thing to develop, grow and sustain a legitimate adult pin-board that isn’t simply populated by marketers spamming tired porn.

Having said that, this author believes that less orthodox pin-board implementations, especially those focusing on unique visual metaphors for accessing and navigating adult multimedia content, may garner substantial traction, especially among mouse-free mobile users that can point, pull and swipe their way across your site using a small touch screen.

Likewise, incorporating pin-board elements into a blog or forum, where discussions may be centered on the pinned content, could boost many communities’ appeal.

Still, a variety of available WordPress themes and stand alone scripts put the power of pin-board porn possibilities into anyone’s hands. For example, Pinterestclones.com, Pin-MeScript.com, Pintastic.com, and Pinnect from UniProgy.com, all provide easy market entry points, allowing anyone to get in the game.

What will be harder to do is to stand out from the fast swelling throng of similar sites.
