Sell Your Sex Tape

Question

I was checking the internet to find out if there is any way of making money through having sex on camera. I found sellyoursextape.com and read the contract. It seems legit. Is it?

Have you talked to anyone who did it? How was the feedback?

Your help would be highly appreciated.

Answer

Despite contacting them over two weeks ago, I have not heard back from Sell Your Sex Tape. That’s not the best sign of a well-tended porn business, though the site does appear to be legitimate. Most people I know who act in pornography wouldn’t be considered appropriate for a site like this because they aren’t full-on amateurs, but I haven’t received any words of caution about this site from anyone I contacted who does online adult business. I’ll let you know if I do.

I suggest submitting photographs of you and your partner and see what happens. It’s important to remember that if you do send in photos or video, there will be – until the internet explodes or, like the Lorax, picks up its bum and leaves the planet through a hole in the sky – an intimate video of you and your partner circulating internationally.

Alison Lee, manager at Good For Her and director of the Feminist Porn Awards, suggests having a look at amateurcanada.com.

An adult film business I trust and have deep respect for is Shine Louise Houston’s Pink and White Productions (pinkwhite.biz), which produces both film and online content. Based out of San Francisco, they are primarily a queer company, though the opportunity to do solo male content is available through Houston’s new site, heavenlyspire.com. I know many people who have worked for Pink and White and continue to – always a good sign in the adult industry. Houston tells me she will be shooting ‘het’ in the future so look out for that.

Still, as Lee says, “Don’t expect to pay off your student loans doing this.” Unless you tirelessly devote yourself to the porn business, extra pocket change is about all you can expect to earn in this age of rampant exhibitionism.
