Actors negotiate their own pay and we pay by day rate, we do not pay performers based on the sex acts that they will do because we don’t want them to feel pressured into doing something that they don’t like for more money. As for reading the script, absolutely! They are sent the script and moodboard well ahead of shooting, they know who they are going to shoot with and the type of sex they will be having. They tell us their limits, what they want to try, what they don’t want to try, and this is communicated with the rest of the cast.

The biggest problem right now is the issue of piracy and the free tubes. Users need to be made aware of the ethical implications of watching pirated material. There are so many reasons that adult content is behind a paywall. It costs money to create a safe sex environment and money to make the film. It costs money to pay performers, crew, post-production and the director; to create fair working conditions for talent and crew, lunch for the day, and comfortable accommodations if required. I urge everyone to start paying for their porn if they can. Sex work is a real job, and performers deserve to be paid fairly. By paying for your porn, you are contributing to their livelihoods and their ability to do their job properly. You are helping to ensure that smaller studios that are committed to fair labour practices, are able to continue making the porn that they want to make and that sex work is done in a safe environment.

We are used to adult movies made by men, where you have close up genital shots, emotionless storylines, where the man’s presence is represented only by his penis and women live sex as something that is done to them instead of actively participating in it. I want to portray healthy sex relationships on screen and to capture the whole feeling of sex – the passion and the pleasure of everyone involved – not just a mechanical shoot of it. My sets are made up of 80% women and we have a big crew, which may look very different for a performer coming from mainstream sets. For female performers used to small crews made up of solely men, this means a lot in terms of feeling in a friendly, supportive and safe environment.

I understand these concerns. I would like to do some more research into cryptocurrency options in the near future. As an adult company it’s very hard to find banks and payment processing companies who are willing to work with us. Right now we use the billing provider, Epoch, which guarantees a 100% safe, secure and confidential process. We do not disclose any user-specific info to third parties and it will not appear publicly on our websites. The protection of your privacy really is a priority for us.

No, it is not. First of all, you are watching a performance so it is all different to real-life sex. You are also watching a heavily edited performance. I shoot for one whole day of at least 12 hours in order to make one short film of 15 to 25 minutes. Obviously the sex scene does not take up all of the day but perhaps on set the sex takes one hour and that is later condensed into a 10 minute scene. So, there is a lot that will be edited out - specially the pre-sex discussion about boundaries or the preparations for sextoys and lube being used. Compared to real life sex the foreplay might not last as long as it should do, things might seem to move more quickly and penetrative is sex is 'the sex'. If there are orgasms they may come faster than in real life. Plus, positions are staged for the camera and awkward fumbles might be edited out.
