10 Ways to Support & Show Love to Your Favorite Porn Star
February 1, 2016
These are in no particular order, just 10 great ways to support the industry and performers that come together to get you off And let's be real, you probably spend a lot of time watching porn, enjoying the musings of your favorite porn stars on twitter, instagram and of course in their xxx rated fims or in my case, their kinky ones, so show your love and appreciation in the following ways!
1. PAY FOR YOUR PORN - this should go without saying. Specifically if your favorite porn star has a membership website, JOIN IT! Do her friends have membership websites? Join them! Does she have a favorite company to work with, join that site or buy their movies! If there is a place your girl is selling her own content, take that opportunity to support her career directly and BUY IT!
2. TWEET YOUR SUPPORT - You know I support the #payforyourporn campaign on twitter and so should you! Tweet your purchases from vod sites / pictures of your recent dvd acquisitions or your collection and use the #payforyourporn with each tweet !
3. LIKES, RETWEETS, COMMENTS - Let's be real, these things aren't just little charms they are commodities for independent performers. These numbers show potential producers (like myself), how many of our fans are truly enganged with what we are doing, showing, sharing etc, and sometimes you could really use the reminder to show your love and appreciation for everything we post. If you value our time, and the pretty pictures we give you to look at, please share them resepctfully (Retweet - do not repost our photos as your own or out of context without our watermark or consent!)), Comment with your love (no negativity please), and LIKE! It shows us who really cares and who is just a voyeur just out for the free stuff.
4. Tell your friends - since the last two have been about the internet primarily, here is my pitch for a grassroots effort. It isn't as taboo to talk about porn, or what gets you off, so tell your friends about your all time favorite, your newcomer, what dvd you saw them on, or what website ... Who knows they might introduce you to someone new, or they could have the same taste as you! But getting the word out about your favorite porn star means more fans, more support!
5. Recommend her to compines - This can happen via email, twitter, old fashioned mail to the office, however you choose to communicate is on you but some girls rely on fan requests to get them the attention that leads to work, especially free-agent performers. So if there is someone you love, let companies know that you would like to see them working together, it could soon be a reality!
6. Pay attention - Acutally read the information she provides, go to the links she posts, check out her websites, or projects, events, interviews, podcasts etc. It seems so simple yet people glaze over these things. I understand when you can't hear an interview I do on regional radio somewhere but many of my interviewss are writen, or available on audio or video recording to enjoy later. You should get to know your favorite performers by paying attention to all these appearances & interviews.
7. Recognize them - not in the literal sense, but recognize their hard work, it may seem like performing in porn is easy peasy, but I promise these ladies and gentleman work their asses off on and off set to stay hot and relevant. Recognize their accomplishments like award nominations and wins, let them know you appreciate all that they put into their performances and persona.
8. Buy / Request Merch - If your favorite porn star sells signed dvds or magazines, or her worn lingerie or shoes, take the opportunity to buy some up, puts money in the performer's pocket and shows how big of a fan you are! If you can't find her merch, reach out and request she put some stuff up for sale or let her know you are interested in buying something.
9. SHOW UP - When I am hosting an event, feature dancing, or signing I want all my fans to show up and show support! No one wants to travel to another state and show up to a few stragglers, Show up for your favorite porn stars, bring friends, show your physical support! Most of the time this will result in actually MEETING your favorite porn star so there really is nothing to lose from adding her appearances to your schedule!
