Covid Porn: How the Coronavirus has Changed the Adult Industry

Categories: Society

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all spheres of human life. She did not bypass the adult industry either. New genres inspired by quarantine have appeared, some well-forgotten plots have revived, porn stars have donated money to fight the virus, and disputes have flared up even more acutely among moralists about how ethical porn with medical entourage is in the current situation. In general, the industry is adapting to the epidemic reality and we will tell you how it happens.

Even in the first months of the pandemic, videos with an obvious "coronavirus" bias began to appear on PornHub. Now they number in the thousands and no one else is surprised. Their plots are quite hackneyed – in the simplest case, sex takes place in medical masks, and in the director's story clips, a doctor or nurse comes to a coronavirus patient and saves him from the virus with sex.

The most original video showed a hot copulation of a group of people dressed in protective suits of unknown purpose – either chemical, or construction and household. From Asia, generous with inventions and perversions, videos began to flow, where diligently portraying girls are physically punished for the spread of the coronavirus.

Our porn makers, as always, are on top – a short film was seen on one of the Russian channels, where a girl passionately gives herself to a stranger for a roll of toilet paper that is scarce in the apocalyptic world. Let's leave aside the ethical side, about which a lot has already been said, and let's deal with the technical part.

Psychology Today has already conducted a study of "covid porn" and, calling on Captain Evidence, published an article that people tend to fetishize various events, especially large-scale ones. We hope that these guys have not spent a lot of effort and dollars on scientific research.

In another issue, the authors of Psychology Today have already settled down and issued another article in which they put forward a new hypothesis of demand for anti-virus subjects. It turns out that people tend to use sex to overcome their fears, this time before a dangerous infection. Now, finally, the extravagant porn videos of the 80s with aliens in rubber suits and pterodactyls with papier-mache wings have become clear.

Moreover, scientists have even found that the higher the mortality rate from COVID-19 in the world, the more views a thematic video has. Moreover, the direct correlation is especially noticeable in countries with a particularly poor mortality situation, for example, in Italy.

Madita Oeming, a pornologist from the German University of Paderborn (yes, that's not what we studied for), told the press that the producers of covid porn are simply following the general trend. Coronavirus is talked about everywhere – it is the most popular topic, so it is quite clear that adult content following in this direction is doomed to success. Nothing like that, just business.

At the same time, the most unscrupulous pornographers do not even bother to create original content – they simply shamelessly add the words "pandemic", "COVID" and "coronavirus" to the title of the video, description and tags. In general, is it worth doing research, because we already know the power of porn trends. There were already Bill Clintons with Monikas and Spidermen with Jokers and even Miho Saakashvili with Yulia Tymoshenko.

Companies that produce DIY porn to our delight react to socio-political phenomena and scandals as quickly as possible – this brings them solid profits.

Jokes are jokes, but professional porn producers in 2020 were not laughing. If the big cinema was on the verge of collapse, then what can we say about such a specific industry. And do not believe those who claim that the demand for adult content has reached sky-high heights during self-isolation. Yes, private owners, especially models with OnlyFans, working "at home", were on top. But manufacturers of serious branded products were on the verge of collapse.

In July, an article flew around foreign publications in which porn industry workers complain about draconian restrictions in their work. Moratoriums on shooting gang bangs and swing scenes were introduced to prevent violations of social distance. Content producers were forced to abandon creams, "golden showers", squirts and even kisses. One can imagine what panic and despair reigned in the offices of Brazzers and Privat!

All this already implies financial losses for porn makers, but, apparently, in order to finish off the industry, in most European countries and in the USA, a rule was introduced to take a coronavirus test for all actors, no later than a day before the start of filming. At the same time, unlike routine tests for STDs, testing for COVID-19 studios had to be carried out by employees at their own expense.

No, we are not talking only about actors – we mean all participants in the workflow. If we take into account that large studios shoot not only every day, but also almost around the clock, with a conveyor belt, we can present an item of expenditure on this item. For comparison, we can say that the participants of the filming took an HIV test once every two weeks, which became a classic in the porn industry back in the late 90s.

All this led to the fact that the actors' fees fell catastrophically and many chose to work independently by registering on OnlyFans. It's no secret that having a well-promoted name in porn, you can earn tens of thousands of dollars a day on this site, which porn stars never dreamed of at the best of times. Such is the pornographic freelance, finishing off the giants of the porn industry.

During the quarantine, life on the network became more active. Filming porn has become less frequent, its quality has become worse, but the demand for it has grown. Because of the forced sitting at home, many got carried away surfing porn sites, driving themselves to complete exhaustion. The fighters for the morality of humanity are not asleep either.

For example, bored in self-isolation without masturbation, guys from the NoFap community published a sensational investigation in which they described the negative consequences of self-forgetful masturbation in quarantine. They concluded that manual labor reduces performance and brain activity and even published detailed instructions on how to protect yourself from this scourge.

The lack of the opportunity to see each other in real life led to the fact that users began to share intimate photos and videos more often. This caused an increase in cases of revenge porn and just leaks of very personal content to the network. Sadly, 80-90% of the victims of this phenomenon are women.

It was during the pandemic that journalists and public figures finally had time to do the real thing. Several serious scandals surfaced, among which the loudest and most unpleasant was related to the placement of videos with minors on PornHub.

Girls from all over the world gave interviews to the press and bloggers and complained that intimate videos taken once for their loved ones ended up on the servers of a network porn giant and were firmly registered there. After complaints, the moderators of the site delete this content, but someone uploads it again and so on indefinitely. Several such cases ended in suicides, and statistics are silent about how many girls received severe psychological injuries.

It cannot be said that only concentrated evil emanates from representatives of the porn industry during the pandemic. The same PornHub, for the closure of which the whole world signed a petition no later than this summer, decided to support people from the most virus-infected countries in any way possible and filled its charity section PornHub Cares with various anti-weed initiatives.

Porn site Xamsterlive has opened free premium access for Italians, Iranians and Spaniards, and then for everyone in general. To implement its project, the adult website distributed 320 tokens ($31.99) to everyone who turned 18 to pay for premium accounts on the service.

Adult service CamSoda supported the unfortunate who found themselves isolated on board the ocean liner Princess Diamond. This vessel with hundreds of passengers was stuck at sea off the coast of Japan for two weeks due to cases of illness on board. CamSoda has opened free access to webcam models' video chats to those who have sent a documentary confirmation by e-mail that he is on the liner. It's hard to imagine how many certificates the ship's office had to issue!

Porn actors did not stand aside either. The famous adult film star and former Disney studio star Maitland Ward launched a stream, during which she received 21,577 tokens ($1,014) in donations in just an hour. Ward immediately transferred the entire amount to the Free Speech Coalition fund.

No, this noble organization does not raise money for the creation of a super vaccine or the purchase of masks for the poor – it supports porn actors and protects them from lawsuits and censorship. Nevertheless, this is still a contribution to the common cause of the fight against coronavirus, although not everyone understood it. Maitland said that the money will help protect the violated rights of impoverished and zatyukannyh lawsuits industry stars.
