I thought this was a fitting article to post. I feel so because just like these women were exploited by their “employer”, so too are most of the female pornstars in the Porn Industry. I’ve had some time to think about the backlash I received stating my opinions on Twitter about how I will never pay for pornography again in my lifetime due to the greed of Elegant Angel, Vivid, and other “sexploitation” companies that chew up and spit out their female performers.
For every penny a Bonnie Rotten makes shooting content for their companies, they’re making $1k or more. That’s fine, and yes Bonnie and a lot of the top porn performers can generate much more of their revenue from stripping, escorting, etc. than they ever can shooting porn scenes (just like the Music Industry- artists make almost nothing from record sales; they generate all their revenue from Concerts, etc.). Porn is just a “platform” for them to get exposure.
Then someone like Bonnie Rotten (a shill obviously for the Industry) has the audacity to defend these “Porn Conglomerates”, and vilify myself and others who choose not to pay for content they can access for free (thank you Mindgeek- they’re smart enough to realize that they can’t make the amount of $$$ they want to strictly from DVD/Blu-ray sales so they own free Porntube sites as well).
Bonnie’s behavior on this topic is the equivalent of someone who works for McDonald’s getting upset that someone used a coupon to get a free cheeseburger, or someone who works as a slave for Walmart getting upset when someone shoplifts from their store. As long as you got your fucking $$$, you should give a fuck less whether “they get theirs!” I don’t care about my fucking employer’s bottom line, so why do you? They need you more than you need them. What I tried to construe to you before on Twitter.
On that note, all you ladies should be “independent contractors”. You’re why I jack off, not because Elegant Angel produced or distributed your scene. I could care less who produced the content, etc. It’s you sucking and fucking, and free beats paying for it. No one in their life has ever turned down a “free meal”, or anything free!
If you disagree, then you’re an absolute liar. You don’t need these companies to produce your content either. Webcam, have your own domain and website. You are the product, not them. Get on Twitter, Facebook, manipulate men to throw $100 bills at you at the Crazyhorse in Vegas, or Scores in NYC. That’s where your focus should be. Not worrying about “John Doe 36″ downloading/watching all your porn for free.
I’ve said all I can say. Not saying any of this for a reaction either. I speak for Thousands if not Millions of “Porn fans” that have every one of your scenes, but choose not to pay for any of them. I would like the option to “pay only for the girls I’m interested in”, and not the other 2 or 3 on every movie these companies release. They pay 1 or 2 performers more than the rest (put their “top billing girl” on the cover), and the others are there to fill out the cast. It’d be like someone in a Tom Cruise movie being paid $100k when he got $20 Million for the movie. I don’t go to a “Tom Cruise movie” to see “Joe Blow”. I pay to see “Tom Cruise”. I feel the same way about Porn.
I’m glad that my “Blog is misinformed”. Do a survey on any website “Would you pay for porn if it was $10 or less for a movie”? and the answer would probably be 65% or more yes. Because that movie is instead $30 or $35, then is it any wonder we find whatever avenue we can to watch it for free?
