Performance Anxiety: Will the Adult Film Industry Survive the Pandemic?
Could the porn industry offer a model for reopening amid Covid? - STAT
Keiran Lee, a veteran porn actor-director, relates an incident from that period before the lockdown. So we just canceled the scene that day. In a time when a simple touch can kill, one might think a pandemic might be the death knell for a business that relies on physical intimacy now that the industry has instituted a voluntary hold on video productions. But for the time being, this sector of the greater porn industry seems to have landed on its feet, thanks to a decade-long shift in content distribution that has favored performers over large video producers like Vivid Entertainment and Wicked Pictures. Today performers are increasingly able to disseminate their content directly to consumers on a variety of cam and so-called tube sites similar to YouTube, as well as on their social media accounts. Lee sees the trend continuing through the pandemic — especially for women, who earn about twice what their male counterparts make.
Things You Need to Know Before Launching Your Own Porn Production Studio
People take interest in adult entertainment business for fun and financial pros. Obviously, financial success is the primary objective, however, the fun part in the adult business is not at all like you would have ever thought of it. If you have been in the porn business directly or indirectly, you may have had an idea of it. But, the real insight of the porn business can be realized, when you step into it with full guns blazing. I have often heard people saying that porn business is a taboo and doing it is a bad thing for good people.
In People vs Freeman of , the California Supreme Court stated that adult film production was to be protected as free speech under the First Amendment. They ruled that since such films did not include obscene images and indecency, and stayed within society's standards, the adult film industry should be granted the freedom of speech. In the United States Code of Regulations, under title Title 18, Section , no performers under the age of 18 are allowed to be employed by adult industry production companies. The failure to abide by this regulation results in civil and criminal prosecutions.
