‘It’s chicks vs. d*cks for the right to send someone home.’

It seems everyone wants a piece of that sweet ‘original programming’ pie these days, even porn sites.

xHamster launched The Sex Factor this week, a 10-episode series seeing sixteen wannabe porn stars battle it out. It follows the format of the talent shows you find on the major networks, with rounds of judging, people getting sent home each week and catty pieces-to-camera about fellow contestants, but features some challenges you’re unlikely to find on The X Factor et al, like competitive blow jobs and orgasm faking.

‘The contestants compete in increasingly explicit challenges to win their share of a $1M prize along with instant porn superstardom,’ xHamster wrote of the show, which it is streaming for free here (highly, highly NSFW).

‘Host Asa Akira leads the show’s contestants through the hardcore competition while [other porn stars] Tori Black, Remy LaCroix, Lexi Belle and Keiran Lee serve as mentors, coaches and judges.’

Feeling like a skit straight out of 30 Rock, The Sex Factor has some wonderful taglines for its contestants (‘Gangbang enthusiast’… ‘Church preschool teacher’… ‘Nicknamed “Banana Boat” due to upward curve of penis’) and sees the judges spouting constructive comments like “I totally understood that she was cumming” and “She was c*ck hungry, I love that”.

It remains to be seen whether the investment is worth it for xHamster, but it looks to be fantastic PR, and follows a similar show made by rival Brazzers, Ligar Seduction and numerous headline-grabbing stunts executed ingeniously by  porn monolith Pornhub, which recently tried to crowdfund a porno shot in space.

Episode two of The Sex Factor arrives on Thursday.
