Quarantine makes us horny

By Evelina S

Even if it's very complicated to treat the porn industry as a normal business, could be interesting to read this.

At home day8(or9?) and I’m on Instagram more than usual.
turns out [by checking stories] many of my virtual friends are craving for sexual interaction, blaming isolation for their “unusual” high sex drive or spending up to 200 on vegan sex toys.
according to Pornhub “people are watching more porn amid CONVID19 outbreak “and it’s not a secret that the porn industry capitalizes on the loneliness of its consumers.


so I begun thinking how we try our best to support friends’ business, small bio farms, ethical clothing brands, but what’s the matter when it comes to do with porn?
there is no thing such as free porn; porn sites take a % of what performers/ sex workers make and also profit from ads (even if you’re watching for free) which isn’t the case with sex workers. Once I read that “Ethical Porn” starts when we pay for it and that’s true. From a typical porn film to a one-person-cam show, there is time, money and effort required in order for it to be made. Sex workers and performers suffer stigma in their every day lives because of their willingness to be in porn and that should be compensated fairly.
pay for your porn.


support creators and performers to make more of the sex you enjoy.
DVD purchases/ subscriptions / Patreon support / online tips.
there are many ways in which you can safely/privately/accessibly pay sex workers in the manner of their preference.
and in general, support one-human businesses/artists/freelancers, whose work/ideas/services you admire.

don’t be an asshole / pay for it! #payforyourporn
