Dick-ometrics: Prove your membership with your pants down – CNET


Security is a risky business.


Using your penis as your password isn’t new (you can already do it on an iPhone), but one porn site wants to make it standard practice for members. 

On Thursday, live-cam site CamSoda launched “Dick-ometrics,” a stand-up new way to log in to your account. (CamSoda assured us this is not a belated April Fools’ joke.) 

CamSoda has a history of racy stunts: It recently offered to pay for your internet if you streamed your life 24 hours a day, in clothes or out of them. In the case of “Dick-ometrics,” pants aren’t optional, but perhaps surprisingly given the software’s name, it doesn’t measure your size, or track your stamina or how long you’re on the site. Instead, Dick-ometrics is just a fancy new way of saying “lets you log in with your penis.”

But why drop trou to sign in? According to CamSoda, your penis print is as unique as a fingerprint or retina scan. Naturally (and purely in the vein of security), we had some questions about safety and sharing (and who has to look at all those dick pics, poor soul?), so we asked CamSoda Vice President Darren Press via email just how safe your man bits are.
