Porn and the Pandemic: A study in adaptability

"You might have seen the joke. And it is still mostly a joke going around the Internet. Another one of millions of jobs around world is lost to this pandemic and person who lost it whether they work in hospitality or media government or whatever takes to social media and with a rueful tone says ow well. I guess it's time to start my only fans account and people laugh. But only a little because another job has been lost and this year sucks. If. There are winners and twenty twenty though. Only fans is a big one. Like so much on the Internet it was a website created to allow people to connect with one another. and its technology offered a chance for creators. To monetize their fans by letting them subscribed to their feeds for a monthly fee exclusive content. And like so much on the Internet that technology was immediately used to make pornography. And really, all this couldn't have come at a better time not only was everyone stock at home all the mainstream pornography studios were shuttered for health reasons and all the performers needed work. So they went to work for themselves on only fans. So what has all this done to a porn industry that is constantly changing? His this next iteration, fleeting or permanent where is the line now between the mainstream pornography industry and the amateur people making money online. And is there a technology out there anywhere on the Internet that can't be used for porn? Okay, that last question was rhetorical. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story. Lena macete is the producer of the last days of August and the butterfly effect. She's also a producer at this American life. She may be the podcast producer who knows the most about Porn Hello Lena. Hi. How are you? I'm doing really well, and maybe for people who haven't listened to the butterfly effects can you try to describe a how profoundly the porn industry has changed even over say the last five or seven years in how quickly it changes in general? Yeah. I mean it's changed dramatically since we made the butterfly effect which I believe we started reporting on Wiezman, Jon Ronson I was working with the a journalist Jon Ronson on both of those two series that you mentioned and I, believe we started reporting on it in two thousand sixteen and the question we were looking at in the butterfly effect was how has This relatively new access to unlimited porn for free that anyone can access on the Internet. How has that impacted the lives of the actual people making it? and. So basically, there's this company in Montreal. It's called his right now called minded Geek believe at the time it was called mind freak and originally I think it was called man win they run a website called porn hub they actually they own a bunch of streaming websites but they but porn hub for our purposes is like the one we're paying close attention to because it's the most visited porn site it regularly ranks as like one of the top ten most visited websites in America you know beside Google and twitter. And so the the reality of porn in two thousand sixteen is that a lot of it was still being made professionally. So in the US, it's made in Los Angeles in San Francisco in. Las Vegas and in Florida which means people are using budgets to pay actors and directors and sound people to make porn But then that porn is being uploaded illegally, it's being pirated to porn hub. Like Youtube just for porn, which means that the consumer isn't paying for it and the the question we were trying to get the answer to was like. How has it impacted porn people's livelihoods, and basically, what are they doing to make up for lost cash and what did the industry due to adapt to Mine Guiquan and the porn hub model? I mean the answer to that like you're you're right to point out that it's always changing like it's it's always changing to the point that before I got on the phone with you today I called one of the performers that we speak to in butterfly effect just to like catch up on what has happened in the last couple of weeks like it. It really does change all the time at the time the the answer hovered around custom porn, which is still what I would call it cust important. So that's porn that. A consumer can order directly from a performer that they like and often it. It breaks down to poor like basically for someone to reach out to a porn performer and ask them to make video in exchange for like one five, ten, thousand dollars It's because they have a specific kink or there's something they're interested in an otherwise can't find on the Internet and there's billions of hours of porn on the Internet. So when you're when you're to the point where you're looking for custom videos. More often than not is. So specific that like it might only apply like you might be the only person in the world who has the specific proclivity. So a lot of our series focused on custom porn on how like people who are made famous as mainstream porn stars are supplementing their income by making these custom videos

"Obviously, we all here to porn podcasts. Is there? A market for audio porn because I've heard of mall. Yes. Is there such a thing as audio on your own? Yeah. I think what is telephone porn. I know lady who who does phone sex for eleven so that works. There must be at story there. You gotta build up to that on the garden bit, right? Become Monica Lewinsky. So I I was listening to slow. Some slow recently. And they Monaco in Clinton had telephoned sex, obviously, audio sex is thing they keep bringing up slow-burn, which is a fantastic podcast of people. Haven't heard it. They. Yeah, they talk about having phones. Excellent. And they kind of say in a bit of an of Han WI with and then they had two more phone sex. But I'm always like what what? You know? So tell me what I've discovered Monica is eve survey lie ecologist plastic questions. You must never ask her about. I've known a fifty now like very much what I tend to do is is way. And if she brings it up I self they're not booking. Question record is the etiquette. When you go and watch a porno being filmed because if you go to the theater, and you see a play, and you not really into it you oversee wait till the interval. And then you may be don't come back. I guess is never done it. But if you if you were enjoying it so little that you wanted to leave. That's probably when you'd go walkout feels rude. A walkout on a porn site. Is that not I've ever snub? I think the opposite is true. I never had this conversation with anybody. But my instincts having been on how many pundits pain on maybe eight ten one nine stint is the less. Attention the pay the better, I actually managed ended up in porn film. I was in public disgrace where I got to close to the to the action. Bespectacled tweedy journalist. Public disgrace and volume. Remember the name of the porn star? He was called Jodie Taylor. And she was being you know, it was like a gang bang in a bar. Just drinking. This was happening. This was the very first porn film. I ever went on. So how did you end up in? I just got a little bit too close to shop. So there is a Beaumont. But if Tweety because I was wearing quiet Tweety jacket Tweety like our like execute. Creeks to shotted writes, down doubted, note, Shikata spoiled erotica million people that Tweety journalists that might be someone's thing. That's what you would think. I mean, I think it would be a niche Kirk. Work. We're gonna make a whole movie on the spectacle our life. My big memory of that night. Just how late the film. It went on for. It was like two I am just stunned standing thinking. Please Jackie light. So I could go. Belinda. Your main objection your I could work in porn, but it's such late nine. Yeah.

"For year, the famous poke asserts five whether room Springer one's listening parkas because how about Rome sprinter is that they go out into the world, and they have Sachs and a party. Yeah. In the club, and they do whatever they wanted to and in that year, they decide whether or not to ten year, continuing, exactly. And I think they're pretty cool about it. And it's like if their kids decide, no, I'm I'm all about partying and sex. Parents are like having buttons and frills love these frilly callers. Yes. That's so Mike came up with the idea of having a porn film based on the rump. Spring. All the women dressed in the mish staff. What's going on to knee? Wild for bonnet are they servicing bonnet one line of dialogue that he wrote was a guy knocks on the mish goes. And she says dad half hour this he's on the wagon. And the guy says what is he trying to drink? And she says now, he's actually gonna wagon. That was a solid. Limes four tablets. But sure. Image. Go wild for that. Amy circles is wild. So there's an awkwardness to blend the blink. You don't see in the valley like in the valley? Everybody's very fine with sexy. They don't feel the need to dress it up in any way, all about this slick, I think whereas over lot of times they don't have sex like sometimes gets a bit carried away not not necessarily with the story. But just like you say with those kind of extraneous details, whereas I feel like you kinda get down to business in porn, right? People. Don't want to skip through seventeen minutes back. Note enjoys the dialogue like none of his enjoy the dialogue. Really? Yeah. No. They all have why do they still insist on the storylines a dying breed. He is making the porn that you're watching hotel rooms and you'll buy on DVD's. And of course, almost nobody watches poured in hotel rooms on DVD's anymore ten years ago. That's how I guess fifteen years ago. That's how everybody would watch porn. So Mike his basically making porn for massively shrinking market. But he's just he's just he just loves to write those seen is that because he's financed by the people that want those seems because he knows it's all going to be stolen anyway. Yes. So isn't that a mind it's like it's just about it's like this just tidy razor thin profit margin. Still enough hotels that will pay for there's still enough people who for some insane reason even might kind understand will still go to DVD store. We were onto early this year. We would have the votes where we saw a huge kind of like a big warehouse of poll during the emporium mostly. It was just this station service station. Just quite sad building just loads and loads of DVD's of pornos who comes everybody is. But it was quite busy, actually. But the DVD's went cheap. It was like five hundred pounds and thing. Yeah. Yeah. I think I've just thought of another reason why they have the dialogue say, I think it's because the other way might make money is through softcore. So. I'm certain markets some countries where of course, okay? Hardcore isn't and I reckon soft core. The neatest Nater filler present thing. So the dialogue really helps to those movies that they show on channel five at like midnight area the late nineties. Yeah. They are paying you're probably too young men of the pink triangles journal for maybe. Well, when channel four I started they would show risque erotic films or sort of transgressive films by people like Ken, Russell, you know, that kind of thing, and they would have all light. You know, I know creed sect poured out films, and they would have pig triangles in the corner of the screen to basically warn people about to be comics. Never straight out porn. It was when I started journalism at tissues to call legit Tet. Out. Tradecraft? Yeah. I was amended leak race. I wouldn't say about a person you'll be like, oh that some legitimate walking. I wasn't. So of like men of saying like, that's a it's a high brow lady with a great rock marrying. No, they would say that jeopardy's film that happens to have simulated sex. That's legit..
