Entering the Sex-Positive World of Web3 Erotica

Introducing NFTreats, XXXNifty and more.

In the past year, Web3, also known as the next stage of the internet, has been prompting discussions of what’s possible for the future of digital art and digital embodiment. Simultaneously, internet censorship has reached its peak for sex workers and sex-positive individuals, making the internet as we know it, also known as Web2, sex-negative. To curb this, several creative pioneers have transitioned into the metaverse to provide safe spaces that double as marketplaces for lovers of erotica and other sex-positive forms of engagement.

Erotic art has existed for generations and is deeply ingrained in many cultures. But with recent SESTA/FOSTA laws, this art form is harder to come by. SESTA/FOSTA laws were initially an attempt to fight against sex trafficking and similar crimes. However, instead, free speech has been prohibited and it has acted as a form of internet censorship for sex workers — a threat that has extended into sexual health and wellness platforms.

Ernest Otoo from NFT marketplace NFTreats spoke with Hypebae about how these laws have encouraged their brand mission: “The post-FOSTA Web2 silences sex workers, queer content creators, sex educators, artists and performers, furthering puritanical ideas about sexuality and cultivating a negative and shameful narrative around sex and sexuality, especially for minority groups.”

As a result, many leaders are making their way to the Web3 space to foster safety and autonomy. There’s no telling what the future of erotica will be in Web3, but in the meantime, here are a few collectives worth tapping into, whether you’re a collector or a sex-positive individual seeking a new safe space:

NFTreats

NFTreats is an inclusive, community-based marketplace for erotic artists and enthusiasts. The platform believes in “education, conversation and creating a positive narrative around sex and sexuality through art and community,” as well as providing a space for creators to be compensated for their work that would otherwise be removed under censorship. The platform has hosted a number of erotic artists such as Playboy-approved Shamaan Messiah and Brian D. Williams, as well as campaigns for giving back to marginalized communities.

Aiko

Not just a “sexy NFT,” as her website reads, Aiko is an avatar crafted to meet your erotic needs. By purchasing your own Aiko, you gain access to the Aiko Master App where you can interact with and “satisfy your more intimate wishes.” Like in any great relationship, over time, Aiko will learn more about you and adapt to your needs making her the perfect playmate.

XXXNifty

This platform features over 150 erotic creators showcasing many forms of art such as cam girl vibes and vulva artwork. XXXNifty prioritizes more boudoir-esque NFTs but also welcomes all styles of sexual connection from findom to erotic illustration. If animated erotic art is your kink, check out Crypto_Candy_Art.

Cumrocket

The cleverly named marketplace is a safe space for fans to view exclusive content from their favorite erotic artists and sex workers. Once they secure their load of $cummies, the platform’s form of currency, viewers can scout through tons of collectibles such as a Vajazzle, a golden vagina “worth its weight in gold.” Some artists also sell their NFTs with nude photos of themselves, allowing the platform to please both erotic art enthusiasts and sex work clientele, simultaneously.
