Marketing for Models

6 days ago

by: Andy

Sure, modeling is tons of fun.

But first and foremost, it’s a business. And the sooner you start treating it like one, the better your results will be. And by results, I mean payouts.

I’ve worked in marketing for years and have sold many different kinds of products - from clothes, to music, to A.I. technology, to porn. They’re very different markets, with very different customers, but there are fundamental principles that apply to selling any product or service.

Not sure where to start? Then you’re in the right place. Let’s go over some basic marketing principles that are proven to work for the biggest businesses on earth - and they’ll work for you too.


Your own domain


Any and all independent professionals, mainstream or otherwise, should have a personal website.

It’s the perfect place for interacting with fans, writing on your blog, and sharing contact details.

But you don’t even need to build a whole website if you don’t want or need to – you can just link a custom domain to your Pornhub or Modelhub profile. “Friendly” URLs can be posted in more places (looking at you, Facebook) and often convert traffic better than Pornhub links.

For example, Bryci and Jenny Blighe both have custom redirect URLs.


Social Media


While only certain social media platforms allow adult content, you can leverage all the mainstream platforms to get more attention.

For sharing NSFW pics and videos, your options are a bit more limited - Twitter, Tumblr and Reddit all allow NSFW content, but Instagram and Facebook don’t.

That said, you should still have accounts on all major platforms; just tailor your content appropriately.

For Twitter and Tumblr, try posting NSFW teaser pics, GIFs, and videos, with links to your Modelhub profile. Tell your fans if they like what they see, they can tip you or buy the full video on Modelhub.

On Facebook and Instagram, you can do something similar, but with SFW content. Take cues from all the bikini models on Instagram to learn how to build a huge following without nudity. Linking out from SFW social networks is a little more complicated, because sometimes Pornhub.com or Modelhub.com links will not be allowed. Try linking to your Twitter, which then links to your Modelhub profile. Consider mentioning in your bio that there is more NSFW content available on your Twitter account.

Or, consider linking to your “Friendly” domain/redirect URL that you made back in step 1. ;)

YouTube content takes a bit more work to set up, but a good SFW teaser video can drive massive traffic back to your Modelhub account. Try experimenting with SFW cuts of your videos, with links to Modelhub in the description.

Reddit is also an amazing resource for drumming up business. There’s a NSFW subreddit (sub-forum/community) for pretty much every possible taste, fetish or body type. /r/SexSells, the main subreddit for buying and selling adult content, has close to 80,000 subscribers, and can bring you lots of traffic.

There's also /r/GoneWild, which is a subreddit for posting nude photos and GIFs. Posts there get millions of views, but they are stricter about self-promotion. If posting there, make sure you have posted elsewhere with your Modelhub/Pornhub link, in case readers go through your comment history. You might also consider creating your own subreddit that contains links to all your content.




SEO (Search Engine Optimization) usually refers to structuring your website and content in such a way that it appears higher on the Google results page. This is absolutely, 100% necessary for anybody doing business online today.

However; Google’s search algorithm isn’t the only one you should be paying attention to.

Any website with a search bar (like, oh, I don’t know… Pornhub) uses an algorithm to categorize and deliver results. The aim, of course, is to give the searcher a list of results ranked from most to least relevant.

But each website uses slightly different tactics to deliver those results.

At the core, what you’re looking for is twofold:

- What content are people searching for?

- What words do they use to search for it?

Let’s use Pornhub as an example.

For point 1), it’s easy enough – sorting videos by Most Viewed or Top Rated gives you a good idea of what people are actually watching. Visit a category you’re interested in uploading to, sort by most-viewed, and look for patterns – what do the top-viewed videos have in common? Are there certain phrases or details that you see repeated? Take note of those common threads and work ‘em into your videos.

Now on to point 2): you’ve identified what’s popular. How are people looking for it? A good indicator is the titles and tags of those top videos; if you see a particular word repeated in the titles of top videos, chances are you’ll wanna include them in your titles, as well (Just make sure that your videos actually contain what’s being described, or your ratings will plummet – clickbait hurts us all). Another great way to see how people search for things is to use the autocomplete feature in the search bar. Start typing in a keyword, and see what the most popular search is related to that word.

For example, if you type in “Blowjob,” the top search results are:

This gives you an idea not only of what people want, but how they describe it.

Work these concepts into your videos, and especially your video titles, and your views are gonna skyrocket.

We also regularly publish data and trends on our Insights Blog. Make sure to read it at least once a week to find out what's trending.



Bet you thought email was dead.

Far from it.

In fact, email has been the top generator of return on investment for the past three years.

The reason for that, many speculate, is because of the personal connection we still associate with email. You may still think of email as a relatively intimate way to have a one-on-one conversation, even though your inbox is probably 90%+ promotional messages.

That means brands and entrepreneurs can leverage that intimate connection to have dialogue with their customers. And by “have dialogue,” of course I mean “drive sales.”

So how can you make it work for you?

First off, you need a way to send those emails. If your list is small enough, you can do it manually through a secure email client like ProtonMail or Tutanota. You can even do it through Gmail if privacy and security are less of a concern for you.

But once your list grows a bit, you’ll want a mailing list management tool. This will let you efficiently send emails to your whole list at once, or even break down your list by different criteria to tailor your messaging (people who have bought something, vs. those who haven’t, for example).

Big mainstream businesses use services like MailChimp, but their terms and conditions may prevent you from using them. It’s not fair, but it’s the reality – pornography/sexually explicit content is not allowed to be sent through most mainstream email providers.

However, you still have options available to you. SecureSender and Newsletter2Go, for example, both offer secure sending solutions without content restrictions.

So: you’ve chosen how you’re gonna send your emails. Next up is building your mailing list.

Your customers gotta want to hear from you. So you need to make it worth their while.

What’s the advantage of joining your mailing list? Is it exclusive pics or videos? Is it a discount that’s only available to subscribers? Maybe it’s an advance schedule of your upcoming vids, thanks to our scheduling tool.

Whatever it is, you gotta entice folks to join. Plug it on your website, your social media, and your profiles.

Then, once they’re in the door, you can start sending out offers.

Here’s a few tactics you can try to drive sales from your email list:

- Early access. Let them purchase videos before you announce them publicly on social media.

- Give your email subscribers a coupon code for purchases.

- Let your subscribers know as soon as a new video or photo set is available, so they can be the first to check ‘em out.

- Exclusive vids. Give out links to your unlisted videos and make them feel special.

Try all different kinds of angles to drive sales and you’re sure to see an increase in numbers.

HOWEVER: it’s important to keep people engaged. If all you do is sell, sell, sell, your readers will start to unsubscribe.

You gotta give ‘em something good now and again to keep ‘em interested.

That might be a free photo gallery or video, or even a personal story, but it should be something they can’t get anywhere else. Anything that keeps your readers subscribed is worth doing.

This might seem like a lot of work. But that’s why they call it “working.” The more you put in, the more you’ll get out – in business, and in everything in life.

Keep these tactics in mind as you’re building up your brand. Apply principles that build billion-dollar enterprises to your own work. Don’t get mad at big business – BE big business.

Because, like Jay-Z said:

I’m not a businessman. I’m a business, man.

But that doesn’t mean your sound doesn’t matter.

Even the most beautifully shot, 4K-resolution video won’t fully satisfy if your sound is bad. Nothing kills the mood faster than bad audio.

Lucky for you, audio recording and post-production is easier than ever. There are tons of DIY tools you can use for cheap or free to improve the sound quality of your videos.

And if you really wanna step it up, a small investment in your sound is sure to pay off down the line.

Let’s break it down.

Audio engineering, at a high level, comes down to three steps:

- Recording

- Mixing

- Mastering

Steps 2 and 3 are often lumped together as “post-production.” Basically it comes down to 1) recording the audio to a hard drive (or tape, if you’re old-school) and 2) playing with the levels and adding effects to make it sound better.

Step 1 – Recording


If you don’t get this right, nothing else will matter.

There’s a (kinda rude) phrase used by audio engineers the world over: “Garbage In, Garbage Out.” What that means is that you can’t fix a bad recording (or a bad mix – more on that later).

So if you’re only gonna pay attention to one part of this article, make it this one. If you don’t record properly in the first place, there’s no saving your audio after the fact.

First up: your room. Start by eliminating any background noise that could cause distractions, like fans or A/C or anything that produces noise. If you live near a busy street, consider closing your windows to keep the traffic noise out. Any possible way you can eliminate distractions is a bonus here.

Second: the gear. You need a decent microphone, and you’ll want a covering for it that will dampen background/ambient noise. These are referred to (somewhat crudely, I might add) as “deadcats,” ‘cause they look like a floppy boneless sleeve of fur. Gross, I know. But they’re effective.

For microphones, you’ll probably want what’s referred to as a Shotgun Mic. These help eliminate background and ambient noise, and focus the recording on the action. You can either mount it to your camera, or get a separate boom or mic stand for it.

Sennheiser makes a great-quality mic at around $200.

And here’s a full kit, including mic and deadcat, for $150.

Wondering what they sound like? Check this video for a detailed comparison.

You might wanna look into a boom mic stand as well, if you’re not gonna attach it to your camera.


Step 2 – Mixing


Mixing means blending the levels of your different audio sources to even them out.

However, if you recorded with just one microphone, you only have one audio source.

Chances are, for your purposes, you only needed one mic. You’re not making a record here, so you didn’t need to mic all the different instruments and sources in your studio.

So that means you don’t really need to mix your audio.

One thing you should do before you move on to mastering your film audio is make sure that the overall levels are OK. By that we mean, make sure your audio isn’t peaking over recommended levels.

Take a look at the audio track in your video or audio editing software. You’ll see little peaks and valleys on the audio track, showing how loud/intense the audio is in each section.

Next to your audio levels, you’ll have a meter showing how loud each section registers at. This is measured in dBFS, or Decibels Relative to Full Scale.

For best results in the next production stage (mastering), you want your audio to peak at around -6 dBFS. All that means is looking at the loudest part of your video, and making sure it sits at around -6 dBFS on the decibel meter.


Step 3 – Mastering


Mastering is the final polish given to audio production that makes it sound “professional” or radio-ready.

It might be overkill for the average video production, but if sound is an important part of your video (like, for example, an ASMR video), this is absolutely worth doing.

You have a few options:

- Do it yourself.

- Pay someone to do it.

- Use an instant mastering service.

Honestly, learning to master your own audio is so complex, that it’s probably not worth doing unless you have dreams of becoming an audio engineer. If you really wanna give it a shot, here’s a good introductory guide.

Paying someone to do it is a more realistic option for most people. This can cost anywhere from $5/video to $10,000/video, but for your purposes you’ll be fine with a service from Fiverr.

The fastest, easiest and cheapest way to do it will always be with an instant mastering service. These services sometimes catch criticism for being of a lower quality than a professional human mastering engineer, but you’re not producing an orchestral concept album – you just need your moans to sound clear and crisp.

So my recommendation is you use an instant service. The #1 ranked service is LANDR Audio, but there are other ones out there too if you wanna shop around.


Once you’ve recorded, mixed, and mastered your audio, you’re all set. Your audio is gonna sound so crisp and clear that you’ll be up for a sound design award at next year’s AVNs. ;)


Ever wanted to drop everything, jump on a motorcycle, and take off with your lover across South America?

Making a massive lifestyle change, especially one that can impact your job or livelihood, is a huge risk.

But the reward can be even greater. 

Susan and Roland, known collectively as Diabloentertain, did just that - and it's not as scary as you think:


To start with, tell us a bit about yourselves. How did you meet, and what made you decide to produce videos together?

Roland and I (Susan) have been together for 6 years after meeting at our first job. I came up the idea of making porn after 3 years working in a call center, and the idea was so refreshing and exciting that we dived completely into this world.


How do you come up with new ideas for content? Is it ever hard to find something new to do?

We like to explore the ideas, fantasies and kinks we’re feeling at the moment. We also like to incorporate ideas that our subscribers request from us - some of those ideas are things we’ve never thought about, but they turn out to be exciting! Of course, some days our creativity is not as good, so you have to think hard about something new to do.


You’re currently traveling through South America by motorcycle. What inspired you to travel that way?

One day we realized that we were putting a lot of effort and time just to live in a small studio in the middle of a stressful city, working 9 to 5 every day just to make ends meet. After that realization, a few weeks later we sold and gave away all our possessions, bought two plane tickets and left everything behind. Three months later, we bought our motorcycle and haven’t stopped since then. We’re currently in Peru, and our goal is to reach the Patagonia in Argentina.


What’s the weirdest thing you’ve experienced on the road so far?

I wouldn’t call it weird, but some time ago we were exploring a very isolated area in the cold Peruvian Andes. We were driving for 3 hours on a dirt road, when we got a flat tire 10 miles away from any civilization! So we had to walk 3 hours next to an active volcano until we found help from the local police. The experience was very intense, but the landscapes were breathtaking!


Have you thought about including your travel experiences in your porn videos? How would you do that?

Thanks to our travels, we have the chance to record in a different place every time. Right now we’re aiming to record in nature and the outdoors more often.


What’s your favorite place you have filmed so far?

Back in Colombia we recorded next to a huge lake, it was super fun because we were located some feet away from tourists so we had to keep quiet! 

In Peru, we also recorded two videos in a beautiful hotel room - it was actually my first time doing anal! 


When traveling, you want to carry as little as possible. Do you have a different camera setup for filming on the road vs. filming at home?

When you’re a low budget traveler, you have to keep it simple. Back home we used a normal camcorder, but it was too big and delicate to carry around. Now we simply use a high end cellphone, and the results are very satisfying. 


What is your process when making a video? Do you write anything down first, or is it spontaneous?

Sometimes I’m just brushing my teeth when I get a burst of inspiration, so I have to run to Roland to spill out the idea. After we’re both on the same page we start recording and improvise the rest of the scene. After all, we like to show it as it truly is - simple amateur porn!

How about post-production? How much editing do you do, and what editing software do you use?

We use Adobe Premier Pro to fix the colors, brightness, add transitions and close ups.


What’s something easy people can do to make their videos look better?

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a fancy camera, as long as you have good natural light, a tripod and the right attitude, your videos will be fantastic.


What do you guys like doing outside of work?

I think it’s too obvious, but I’ll say travelling! We also love indulging in the passions that brought us together, like videogames, listening music for hours, and riding bicycles – that’s the best thing to do in Colombia!


What’s your favorite song right now?

We’d say it’s Creepin’, from an old rock band called Grand Funk Railroad. The message from that song is as important today as it was in the 70’s. I’d suggest it to anyone that is tired and sad about the world’s situation and wants to stand up for their rights.


What’s the funniest thing that ever happened to you while filming?

This was crazy – one day we were alone in my parent’s home, and got the urge to get on with it. So we went to my brother’s room and started filming, and a couple seconds after hitting the “OFF” button the front door opened! We had to get dressed and fix the mess in a couple seconds!


Anything else you’d like to tell us about? Upcoming projects, shoutouts?

We’re learning to make our own Diabloentertain website, where we’ll publish our videos, photos, exclusive content, and a blog that will be about our travel. In the future, we’re planning to launch a sex shop focused on female pleasure. Living on the road makes it difficult to be constantly present in social media, but we try to have close contact with all our fans - we're eternally grateful with them, especially the ones that have been watching since we started:

- justbonebaby

- average1954

- magdi45

- 876cock

I also want to give a shoutout to fellow model LittleOralAndie and her boyfriend, for giving priceless advice, and to the Pornhub network for this opportunity! Without Pornhub we wouldn't be living our dream right now!


Thanks again to Susan and Roland for sharing their story with us. Make sure to follow them on Pornhub, Modelhub and Twitter!

If you've been following the Pornhub Blog for a while, you'll know this isn't the first time I had the pleasure of speaking with The Panda Family. Last time, we spoke about how to make polyamory work, and what it's like smoking weed and having sex for a living (spoiler: it's fun).

But, as with all models, content creators and sex workers, there's a lot more to them than porn. They have lives. They have interests. They have opinions, passions, values.

For the Panda Family, one of those interests is gaming. Turns out, you can monetize that, too, and it's also an excellent source of traffic for your NSFW projects. 

Ever wondered how to play video games all day every day, and get paid for it? 

Look no further:


Let's jump right into it. We're gonna talk today about professional gaming and non-adult streaming. In terms of gaming streams, what are you guys doing right now?
Daddy: We’re primarily on Twitch. We're console streamers, so we play on the PS4 and Xbox. We do have a Mixer, which is a Microsoft centric-platform, so it's more for the Xbox and computer streaming. And we have done some streams on YouTube as well. But primarily, we're on Twitch.


What would you say are the main differences between Twitch and, for example, streaming on YouTube?
Daddy: The community. Twitch is more focused on gaming and game streaming. YouTube is more of a variety. So YouTube is more of a lifestyle brand - they're more looking for heavily edited videos. You don't really see a whole lot of that on Twitch. On Twitch, it's mainly just live game streaming; so like Facecam, game content, that kind of thing. Probably 85%, 90% of Twitch is game streaming with content and Facecam - that's definitely not the case with YouTube.


When you're doing SFW streaming, do you ever use that to drive traffic to your NSFW properties like your Pornhub or Modelhub profiles?
Daddy: We definitely do, yeah. That plays a part. A lot of our people came to us from Pornhub and Modelhub, but a lot of our people came to Pornhub and Modelhub from our game streaming. We have a policy where we play with our subscribers on Friday. We're doing play dates with our subscribers. And most of our subscribers that play with us, and people that are in our subscriptions, also subscribe to other places, like our VIP Snapchat, they subscribe to us on Pornhub, and they purchase things off Modelhub


So it's not really one's driving to the other, they're both just part of that same ecosystem, which includes your NSFW stuff as well as SFW?
Daddy: That's exactly right. We are building a community. So we may be doing a different thing than other people. I think a lot of people are doing the same thing, but we're building a community. We call it Panda World, and our pandas are literally everywhere all over the world. We have international people who join us in our streams, both adult and non-adult. For instance, my barber. He is a part of our show because he cuts my hair in certain ways, but he doesn’t want to be a part of our NSFW content. He's able to hang out with us on the Twitch side of things much more easily than he is on the non-Twitch side of thing.


So this is casting the net a little wider, in that sense.
Daddy: Exactly. We're casting the net and we're widening our audience to include non-adult-oriented viewers, which has been going pretty well. 

"We've always just been who we really are."

How do you monetize on Twitch or other SFW streaming?
Daddy: On Twitch and on YouTube, you’re monetized based on views, ad revenue, and subscribers. People can pay a certain amount, there's two or three two tiers. You give them certain incentives for being part of those tiers. And then they have a tip system, called Cheering, where they get what's called bits for doing certain things around Twitch, or they can buy them, and then they can share them to you. They're worth about a cent, just like a token on a cam site. It’s a similar concept to that, but it's more for when you're doing cool stuff. For example, we do 100 bits for a shot [of liquor] on Fridays. It's like a party.

Do you sell any merchandise or anything like that to complement your streaming profile? 
Daddy: We don't yet, but we will be. We have a merch store within the Twitch/Streamlabs ecosystem which kind of works together. So Streamlabs has a merchandise store that hooks into Twitch. There is a merchandising option, and we’re working on that right now. I just finished commissioning some logos and other things that are under our brand. So I'm working on some merch now.

When you're positioning yourself for a SFW audience like Twitch vs. an audience on Pornhub, what are the main differences between those markets? Besides, obviously, the sexual aspect.
Daddy: It's very, very, very different, and then it's not different at all. A lot of our NSFW content includes video game references and includes a lot of nerdy shit that we do anyway. So from the beginning, we've been just ourselves. We've always just been who we really are. We're Rick and Morty fans, and we're anime fans. Baby girl Elle Panda's doing a first run-through Dragon Ball Z. She's never seen any of the anime, and we're doing that with our fans. So they're getting to watch that with her for the first time. That's been how our porn has run, like we're silly, nerds. So we just take out the sex part and leave in everything else.

But in a non-adult environment, you have to have a personality. You have to have some reason why people wanna watch you. And a lot of times with the NSFW content, the draw is to be able to see things - but the girls don't do anything unless they're being paid. And that's definitely not how it works on the SFW side. You have to be captivating, you have to be a show.

You wanna have a character, or a notable personality - something people can identify with?
Daddy: Yeah. Some people have, like, real characters.
Elle: You have to have something for your fans to latch on to, something that they are passionate about. There’s one girl we watch who voices her character. She plays Grand Theft Auto V, and she makes a character, gives them a name, gives them a back story, has totally different voices for them while they're running around on her stream. She often dresses up with her character in her Facecam. It's really kind of a monologue, or a standup show. And it's one of the most captivating things to watch because her fans really know who these characters are. She talks about them as if they're real people. And they all tip for them.

We don't pretend that adults don't have other interests besides sex, and we don't pretend that adults don't have sex.

We talk about relationships, we talk about video games, anything. Twitch is on the couch, and Pornhub is in the bedroom, but they’re both in the same house.

It's a real narrative arc - true storytelling. 
Daddy: There you go. It's like storytelling, and it's a place where fans can come and ask us personal questions.

"We stream a lot of real life."

Here's a fun question. What games are you guys playing right now?
Daddy: Fortnite. The one that rules the world.

What we’re really excited about Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 coming out in October. We play Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and we're real big Zombies fans. We're all really good at Zombies, we're terrible at Fortnite, but we really like it. All of that, we're into it.
Even though we’re bad at Fortnite, it can be just as fun to watch your friends who are good at stuff, as to watch your friends that are bad at stuff. 

I hope my friends think it's fun to watch me play Fortnite, because I'm so bad at it. 
Daddy: I invite a lot of cam girls and pornstars to come and play with us - that's gonna be a series coming up soon. We're going to have special guests on our Twitch channel, once a week or once a month, come and play with us. And it might be even their first time - we had a porn star with us last weekend, and she played Fortnite with us on stream. And she got top 10 the first time.

Elle: They all have the same reservation and they all say the same thing that you said, "I'm not any good at it." And we say the same thing every time, "No one is good at Fortnite.”
Daddy: There's like five people that are good at Fortnite, then the rest of us. Like, we all suck at Fortnite.


Are there some games that have a better or more easily monetizable audience, or is it just whatever is popular?
Daddy: You know, we try to do a little bit of a variety. Some streamers, they are experts on one thing. Twitch has a very, very big star named Ninja and he plays Fortnite. And everybody knows that Ninja only plays Fortnite or Fortnite style games. We’re more of a variety streamer. We stream a lot of real life as well. If streams are running into mealtimes, then we'll cook on stream and show new recipes or new things that we're working on. Elle has done coloring with our fans before. One of our fans got her a hip-hop coloring book. What else? 
Elle: The unboxing.
Daddy: Yeah, we do unboxing sometimes. So I bought the Super Nintendo Classic, the little mini one. We unboxed it on there with them. It was nostalgic looking at the games and setting it up!


For somebody who is just starting out with game streaming, what would you put in their starter pack? What equipment, what accounts on websites would you need, what game systems?   
Daddy: The best place to start is to just get a console, and a very, very solid internet connection. Upload speeds are the biggest part of that. Make sure that you have a 6 mb upload speed or better. That's probably the lower limit of where you should be. And that's pretty much it. Both PlayStation Network and Xbox Live have easy streaming.

With consoles, it's all-in-one - just push a button, easy streaming method. And that's where we started. We just kind of pushed streams or broadcast on our PS4, and we did that for a little while until we got enough subscribers to support the channel. And then we bought a Capture Card and we went a little more elaborate with our computer setup, and now we stream so they can see our faces.

PC streaming is gonna be a lot more complicated than console. So I would say, if you wanna do video game streaming, start with a console.
Elle: The biggest way to monetize your video game streaming is to have something you can play with your fans. People will say, "Oh, I wish you had an Xbox." We have multiple systems, so we can play with fans on different platforms, and they get so excited. So if you pick one or the other, you're gonna grab that fan-base. Fortunately for us, we're a gaming family so we have both. But Ronni Panda just got a PS4, and she's capturing all of these fans that wanna play with her on the PS4. 
And being a cam girl, she already had a webcam. She'll have to work up to buying a Capture Card when her Twitch can support it. But most cam girls have a mic and a webcam already, and that really helps with their video gaming streaming - you buy a console that's a couple hundred dollars that hooks really easily into Twitch or Mixer. And then once your channel can support a Capture Card, which is a couple hundred, then you just hook your mic in webcam and ta-da. And you're almost a full-fledged streamer. Then you get some emotes, and some extensions, and things like that.


Is there anything you wish you had known before you first started streaming?
Daddy: How popular emotes were gonna be. Like, I just really didn't think that those little emojis would be so popular that people would actually pay and subscribe to have them. Emotes are these little emojis that you can use within your channel as incentives, and only your subscribers can use them. There are three pricing tiers.
If you're a subscriber of that tier, then you can use those emotes. And each of the emotes, we just made them a little more complicated. So I found an artist to draw Elle as an anime character, that’s in the second tier. And then it's a panda and some candy as a third tier. 

Engagement goes through the roof. They love those things. They love playing with them. It's kind of like a Fortnite event. The more little gadgets and trinkets you can give them, the better. 

"We are Pornhub models AND Twitch streamers, and that's just the way it is."

Almost like skins or dances in Fortnite. 
Daddy: Exactly. Skins or pickaxes, that’s a winning combination. People really like getting stuff for being a part of something, or experience points. They like playing games and getting rewards for it.


Can you walk me through what a typical day is like for you guys? What's the divide like between Twitch and Pornhub, or let's say SFW and Not SFW?
Daddy: For us, we try to keep that divide very shallow, man. Obviously, when we do our advertisement for NSFW, we have to be on the NSFW platforms. Twitch is very much not a sexual place - you can't allow your users to be too sexual, and you can't be too sexual. They're very heavy-handed when it comes to sex-related content. 
But there's not much of a divide for us. I wear my Pornhub shirt on stream. We are Pornhub models AND Twitch streamers, and that's just the way it is. 
But you also have to manage expectations. When people want us to do sexual things on Twitch, we gotta say no. Like, that's not what we do here. If you wanna see that, then you gotta go to Pornhub. What we're doing here is we're playing video games.


Have you participated in any competitions, eSports, or anything like that?
Daddy: Oh, we so badly want to. We're gonna be ramping up really, really heavily when Black Ops 4 comes out. We wanna make that one our competition game. So I wanna get the girls really, really good at Black Ops 4 so that we have a chance. Since it’ll be new, we’ll have a fresh template to start from.


Any last pieces of advice for models who are interested in streaming? 
Elle: A really wonderful thing to take into consideration to have a Vanilla landing page somewhere. I point a lot of people to Pornhub for my 18 and up landing page, "Hey, if you want to find anything out about me, you could go here." But for anything else, like other people I meet on the street, I'll send them to Twitch as my landing page if I don't know where they stand. Even if it’s just your Instagram, having somewhere on the internet that you exist without being NSFW is great too.


That's amazing advice, because that's something that can be shared or go viral on SFW platforms.
Elle: Yeah, we keep telling people: porn stars are just people and they have interests just like you do. So having a non-porn landing page for a porn star is kind of wonderful because then they're like, "Oh, that's another avenue of your personality. That's another thing that exposes me to who you are.” They can share that with other people a little more openly than they can share their fandom for your porn.
Daddy: Sex is like 5% of our life, so we’re trying to share the other 95%.


Thanks, love and gratitude to our favorite family once again. Make sure to follow them on Twitch, Pornhub and Modelhub.
