With thousands of passengers stranded in quarantine on the cruise ship the Diamond Princess, one adult company has come up with an idea on how to kill the boredom - porn.
With 3,700 passengers facing more than two weeks in quarantine, Miami-based company CamSoda has offered its services to those on board off the coast of Japan.
"They are not only dealing with the fear of infection, which is terrifying, but boredom," Daryn Parker, CamSoda's vice president, said in a statement.
"We like cruises just as much as the next guy, but without activities or human interaction, the boredom must be crippling.
"In an effort to keep their minds off of the coronavirus and to help with the boredom, we're offering passengers and crews the ability to have fun in a safe and controlled environment with camming."
SodaCam is offering passengers full access to their webcam services for free.
1,000 free CamSoda tokens can be redeemed by each crew member and passenger. All they have to do is send a copy of their ticket or staff credentials to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tokens are the "currency of the cam world", according to CamSoda, and can be used for interacting during camming sessions.
The company said these sessions don't have to be sexual, according to the news release.
