Thursday CamSoda streams first interactive live MMA show, free
Adult content has long led technology. Over 500 years ago The Gutenberg Bible became the first book ever printed with movable metal type; the second thing was naughty stories with pics. 4,000 years ago, the oldest known literature, Sumerian cuneiform on clay tablets, contained instructions on how a man was to touch a woman in her “goodly place.” 27,000 years ago, when humankind first got the impulse to make sculptures, the Venus figurines had big old boobs and butts.
Moving forward, in 1978/79, when less than 1 percent of American homes had VCRs, more than 75 percent of the VHS tapes sold were adult content. Phone sex operators led in the marketing and technology of pay-per-call services, which could command $7 per minute. Now a cutting-edge live cam platform, CamSoda, is expanding its foray into original digital programming, with mixed martial arts.
The event, scheduled for April 26 in Fort Lauderdale, will be live streamed for free on CamSoda. Featured bouts on the stacked card include Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Ricco ‘Suave’ Rodriguez taking on UFC veteran Alex ‘The Spartan’ Nicholson as well as Pride veteran Charles ‘Krazy Horse’ Bennett versus Bruce ‘The Iron Lion’ Lutchmedial, in addition to several others.
For the first time ever, fans will be able to directly interact with fighters in real-time. As the fights occur, fans watching the livestream will be able to determine bonus money and provide extra incentive for specific finishing moves.
The fight will be 100% free to watch. Similar to webcamming, those watching the live stream can purchase tokens that will enable them to tip toward fight goals and determine cash bonuses. These specific requests will be relayed to the fighters in real time during their fights. The more a user tips, the more direction over the fights they are afforded. As a special bonus, ring girls for the fight will be available after the event for live cam sessions.
Further, the for the first time, an MMA event will be simulcast in 4K virtual reality (VR), allowing fans to step onto the mats and experience the cage like never before.

With Camsoda Legends we will offer hard-hitting action-packed interactive content catering to combat sports fans all over the world.”
