Why are you giving up Pornhub Exclusive and diversifying to other networks?


After my first year of Pornhub I debated what “Exclusive” meant. Let me show you…

So. This is a box you can “opt” to tick in. Alongside this…

Why are you diversifying to other networks and giving up Pornhub Exclusive Sireah Warden

My issue with this latter feature, is that it does not share “all” your content. It is restricted to only content with only 10k+ views from what I can make out. Pornhub doesn’t inform you how it works. It does not stagger release your content over time as one would suspect from an exclusive contract. Uploading after a delay of exclusivity on the main platform. Instead uploading just the “over a threshold” videos.

So, say if I make $10 on pornhub, I will only get 0.50c from the other networks because possibly only 1 out of 20 videos are shared for most users. If that makes sense? You are limited in your ability to actually “get out” your content to these networks whilst this option is on.

This is a big deal because every platform is different. People generally have favoured platforms and are attracted to platforms for different reasons. Such as YouPorn is popular amongst women (one example, I’ve read the statement in other surveys before also – personally I started watching on RedTube not Pornhub).

I may post something on Pornhub that is overlooked, but the market who prefers YouPorn / RedTube / Tube8 will likely be a very different user-base and hypothetically may want to see my work more. If its not all just shared faithfully, I feel the contract is disingenuous as you have no control over your content on the shared network. Xvideos shares everything to it’s network sites like XNXX as a main competitor example, which is generally the norm amongst all parts of the internet. Whether a mirror website or not, I think user’s should have control over their own individual upload content.

I realised after a time that I would rather make a separate account on those platforms to gain control to upload, even without being paid to know whether I should be signed to one of those other MindGeek platforms rather than only Pornhub. Say I have found Pornhub more than other platforms (like xvideos, xnxx, xhamster, which are larger networks) are more focused on the family-fetish genre which I do not upload content for as an example. Whereas the more softcore female-friendly feel of YouPorn would mean my solo masturbation orgasm videos would be more appreciated I’d imagine, as I watch female orgasm videos on occassion. As watching someone similar to you orgasm (under the psychological projection concept), can help push you over to orgasm and most mainstream produced porn is focused around sex involving an ending of a male orgasm to help men push over the edge as they are the main focus-group demographic for porn creation.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MindGeek#Global_Alexa_ranks This is MindGeek’s network currently. Pornhub, YouPorn, RedTube and Tube8 are likely just its default network which can be housed together. Ie, I was told by Redtube today that it’s support is all just Pornhub support. I doubt they even have any staff at Redtube locally. It’s just a fake domain now. An arguable mirror website to pornhub. Half the stuff on there is just shared over from Pornhub content creators… unfortunately. They were different independent companies bought by MindGeek.

Anyway. https://www.similarweb.com/top-websites/category/adult/ that wikipedia listing was also taken before pornhublive (streamate.com) became a connection also. Similar to xhamster / xhamsterlive / stripchat, except at least xhamsterlive is also an independant thing. You can sign up for either/or or both, and you will get streamed to the same infrastructure. Ie, if i cam on Stripchat you can see it on xHamsterlive, and vice versa. Whereas for Pornhub’s connection with Streamate, you have literally no connection with Pornhub. It just datamines your information from Streamate and puts it on their site as an embed. Which is fucking awful, because Streamate’s support is atrocious. Like… you have to skype individual employees to get answers level of awful. Wecamgirls (forum for verified camgirls to review things and such, great website) is filled with people talking about how awful it is. Myself included have had this problem where I have contacted support and never received an answer. Twice… I waited four months O.O, still no response either time. Anyway… Pornhub promotes the website like it’s their own on the website, without offering any kind of true connection. It’s ridiculous.

So. After about five months of uploads to Pornhub, I got paid for the first time. 50% of that is ad revenue, 50% fan club memberships and sold videos. So I started to look into where my revenue was coming from, what I thought about being on the website and whether it was worth it to be exclusive.

Upon reading the first screenshot, you may have noticed there is two rewards “5% ad bonus” and “public DMCA protection”. The latter, is not in argument here. It’s nice, but if you are diversifying to other networks, obviously you don’t want Pornhub taking down your content by DMCA strikes on other websites :P. The former is what I am going to discuss here. Whether the 5% ad bonus is worth remaining exclusive for. There can be arguments made for people clicking on the “exclusive” option on Pornhub but I have found that I wouldn’t say that’s worth 5%.

https://www.pornhub.com/blog/8541 shows that Exclusive is top, but possibly one of the reason they don’t release those stats publicly every month is because it isn’t always. It is Amateurs who are constantly at the top, yes. But Exclusive vs Verified, probably changes monthly. 2, 3, and 4 are all still categories I am in from the second table in the link. Pornhub of course desiring you be exclusive to their network to bring customer loyalty in viewership hours and payments.

So I self queried. Was it worth it. The big money to be made on Porn platforms, depends on the platform itself in terms of what you are making. Similar to Webcam sites.

Deep down. A part of me knew this is just something I wanted to do. But this is much more risky, to have your content spread out more. And it takes obviously more time to upload something 10 times rather than once.

I hope bringing my content to more platforms makes you all more comfortable watching my content wherever you most enjoy doing so :).

I will slowly diversify to even more platforms, but for now the new roster is xHamster, MyDirtyHobby, and Xvideos alongside Pornhub to begin with.
