Patreon And Producing Porn

 

Reading this weeks big issue with adult content creators and Patreon reminds us that people need to be informed before signing up to use this service to finance adult productions of an explicit nature
Patreon support adult content creators. They do not support porn production. Do consider the difference between the two terms used,
Patreon provide specific details to adult content creators
Patreons aim is to support the creative communities by subsidising their users with donations from followers for users to continue their work.
"Adult" is a very broad term. If you read Patreons TOS (terms of service) it specifically mentions they do not include porn and sexual services and for good reasons 
While producing porn is not illegal, the word itself throws up red flags for Patreon where regulation and compliance in the banking industry are concerned. The  adult business is considered very high risk and its lack of compliance is out of sync with banking  practices.
Add Pay Pal to this and it's  another reason why Patreon cannot be seen to be facilitating the funding of pornographic content.
So what services are Patreon able to deal with? The answer to that is, anything but hardcore porn which is defined as  "actual sex". If you are making an art house movie where sex is implied then this is ok. Actually doing it is not ok. They can inform you directly with how this can be done if you are doing something about sex and sexuality for example. There are many creatives who deal in adult themed work who use Patreon, lawyers (Myles  Jackman is one) activists and campaigners (Pandora Blake is another.) You can still be a sex worker and use Patreon. Just not for porn 

Visit the site to see how Patreon works
The adult industry is considered high risk for things like charge backs. Banks do not grant loans for porn productions for the same reason that the adult production business has no regulations in place that makes it stand out as an ethical and compliant business . Its not a moral discrimination thing as some may think.

PayPal is not adult industry friendly for the same reason. Combine the two together and you have twice the reason for not using Patreon when alternatives already exist. This is why UKAP have supported companies like Pay4.xxx who have catered to and engaged with the business specific to its market. Even though it deals mainly with  adult services it can be used to get paid for work without the risk of losing money for its association with adult products or services
One of the common ways to fund adult productions is to do it by building your own pay site to sell the content from. There is a Pay Site Meetup coming soon on November 30th if you want to understand how to monetisating content. The recent UKAP Award winning for innovation & media company  Web Stream can provide this service complete with a range of tools from webcamming to phone chat. If you are a producer you can sign up to ItsAdult.com as a business using this LINK and use the platform to sell content by promoting it to your own followers on social media
Experienced producers do not use these services knowing there are other options available such as Adult X Funding. If you want to know more about this then you should sign up to UKAP who hold meetings every three months with producers, talent and services and relevant guests to discuss issues like this and network.
