Video Transcript: Pay for your Porn!

Hello. I’m back to talk about sex work and in today’s edition we’re going to talk about why you should pay for your porn. I was thinking about what to film. But then I remembered that I was filming femdom clips, and that just a few hours ago, I was searching the internet for my own stolen porn. So let’s get it out of the way. There are some people that will never pay for their porn. They have gone, “Nope. Nope.” And no matter what you say to them, no matter how you phrase it, no matter if you put them in the picture, they’re not gonna pay for their porn.

There are some that will pay for their porn, but then kind of go, “No, I pay for this amount of porn, so now that should mean I can get the rest of the porn.” And then will either upload to YouTube sites, will stream it through various streaming sites or clip-trade it, which is still something I’m trying to wrap my head around. I have been on many forums recently where they “trade” clips with each other after one of them paid like 1500 pounds, and then now wants to trade clips because they’ve gone, “Well you know, now I’m gonna stop this addiction, so I’m gonna make a porn site and upload them.” Okay, don’t understand that. Okay. And then you get some that it kind of clicks. And then you also get some that just pay for their porn. And that’s delightful.

So why should you pay for your porn? After all, a lot of things are free. YouTube’s free. People think PornHub’s free (when it’s really just stolen content). people expect things to be free or they will stream them. Look at a film called Unrest. Because it wasn’t streamed in the UK at the same time, people felt entitled, people thought they were doing good by sharing. But in actual fact, no. It hurt more than it helped. Because it meant the people behind Unrest couldn’t travel around the UK as much as they wanted because they didn’t raise the money because someone had shared it online, and it didn’t make as much money. That, in effect, is kind of like porn in a nutshell.

If I make a video with a ton of effects, audio and visual, that takes lots of effort — I mean, everything takes effort nowadays, but more effort than my usual of sitting down in front of a camera — lots of editing, all the backgrounds. It’s gonna take up a lot of time and money. And then people pirate them because they think other people deserve them. I’m not gonna wanna film any of that again. What I’m gonna wanna do is do the easiest, simplest videos I can think of, because that way, I don’t have to put as much effort in. I don’t have to give money away, essentially, by doing stuff for free.

Those videos, the ones you put your heart and your soul into — and yes, you can, as a fetish content creator, as a femdom producer — you can love what you’re doing. I know many people that do. I love filming clips. But a little bit of me gets taken away every time I see a stolen video on the internet. Sometimes I’m amused purely by the fetish they’ve chosen to put on the internet. Sometimes I’m shocked. One of my pirated videos has 10,000 views on PornHub. If I’d have got that money, I wouldn’t have to worry so much and work so hard, get a lot done in a short amount of time to sort my tax mess, thanks to being ill.

People don’t seem to realize that there’s a real person behind the camera, taking their own time to film a fetish that they love, and yet, they feel entitled to it. They feel entitled to my time and attention.

I once shot with someone who had 3 terabytes of porn on his computer. He didn’t think much of it. He was like, “Ah, okay.” But he paid for every single other bit of media he consumed — TV, music, but not porn. It didn’t come across to him that he should pay for his porn. And then he filmed with me. He saw the effort that goes into it. He saw just how much it takes out of you. And he only saw the filming side. He didn’t see the 10 hours it took for me to go through the footage, edit the footage, export the footage and upload the footage. And that was on a very, very speedy day.

People get it into their head that they shouldn’t have to pay for porn because it’s something they enjoy. Why would they pay $15 for a quick wank? But those $15 break down a lot. So you have $15 as a base cost. Say I charge you $15 to watch this video. But then the site takes a percentage of it, between 30 to 60% in some places, and then you’ve got X amount left. And then from the X amount, you have your taxes, you have your costs, the makeup. And then I have exchange fees. So then that $15 whittles down into $5, which whittles down into a couple of quid. For a long video. After all that time and effort.

We rely on multiple sales. We rely on people buying our porn so we can keep producing it because we love to do it. Because at the end of the day, if you don’t buy our porn, we can’t make it anymore. We don’t have the money to do it. Why would we do something that’s not cost-effective? Why would we film that really specific fetish, like a vampire fetish for example, with a ton of effects, like a mesmerize clip, and we’re not getting anything for it, bar our content being pirated.

I’ve known many girls want to stop filming because of it. Myself as well. I have had many moments where I’ve found upwards of 100 videos online. And I don’t know what the point is of filming anymore. They share them around like they’re candy. They don’t think of the person behind the camera. They think they can. It angers me, it saddens me. And then I’ve moved into a strange sort of apathy because it happens.

In this day and age, people are consuming so much media they forget that there’s people behind the camera. They forget that I need to pay my bills. They feel entitled to it because “Everyone wanks, so our wanking material should be free, right?” Wrong.

Big or small, amateur or professional, pay for your porn. I know one company that hires models, and unless they make the amount back, they can’t hire them again. I know girls that have stopped producing content because it’s not cost-effective for them to do it. Myself, I’m very reluctant to upgrade most of my filming stuff, to put the time and the effort in, like the lightboxes, because I don’t if the effort’s gonna be worth it.

So pay for your porn. I can’t stress it enough. But if you’ve never paid for your porn before, just think of this: If you were the one sitting in front of a camera for hours on end to produce hundreds of videos — I’ve produced over 1,000 videos in my career. If you produced that many videos, you edited them, you uploaded them, you wrote the description, you made the GIF, you promoted them, you kept promoting them. And then you did it all again. And then someone has kept stealing your work. Again and again and again. Would you continue to do it still? Or just kind of shrug your shoulders and go, “Well, is there any point anymore?” Think about that. Role reversal always helps.

But you might be sitting there going, “Hahaha, I’ve seen her boobies.” A lot of people have. But did you pay for my boobies? That’s the question I want to leave you with. No, it’s not. But it is a good question. If you’ve seen me, have you paid? If not, why not? Is it because you’ve got these preconceived notions? Is it just because it’s what you’ve always done? Or is it because you’ve never actually thought about the person behind the camera and the effort that goes in to making the porn?

I got a little carried away, granted, and there will definitely be a blog post accompanying this video soon. But thank you for listening. And if I have managed to change your mind at all, a little bit, then yes. If not, well, just mull it over in your head a little. You might get it eventually.

I will be uploading at least one new video a week, sometimes two, depending on my health. And thank for you watching and listening again. Please like and subscribe if you enjoyed this content. And leave a comment if you want. I am open to discussion, but I’m not open to silly comments. Thanks for watching.
