When thinking about the adult industry, people often forget that there are various different types of sites, and business models. So, here is a breakdown on the types of adult sites, and the business models that they use:
Tube sites: You are probably most familiar with tube sites. These are the ‘free’ porn sites, similar in style to that of YouTube, and arguably one of the most popular types of adult sites. This business model works on advertisement, as well as some users who will subscribe for ‘premium’ content. Some tube sites have an incredible amount of traffic, sometimes more than Twitter and Amazon combined.
Cam sites host live streams of content creators, where users can tip the content creators, and pay for private sessions as well as other on-camera acts. The cam sites then take a certain percentage of the creators earnings, as well as making money from advertisement.
Studios that you see on tube sites, also have their own individual websites to which you can directly purchase content, or a subscription. Their business model works on your individual purchases and subscriptions, as well as through licensing their content to other platforms/companies.
Fan sites have become incredibly popular since 2020. These are hosting sites, where content creators have their own social media pages, to which you can either follow for free, or subscribe. On top of this you can purchase individual content or sexting from the creators. The platforms then take a percentage of the performers earnings, usually between 15-20%. Some fan sites might also work with advertising.
These are sites that usually have licensed content from various different studios. They then make money by having users pay a monthly subscription fee. Often marketed as ‘ethical’ female only alternatives, which is part of a larger debatable topic.
