Why Is High-Quality Porn Paid?

If you want to enjoy a high-quality product, then you will need to pay for it. Just like anything in life, quality things cost money; you will hardly get a good product free of charge. The same rule applies to porn movies. If you want to watch a really professionally shooted video content, then you will need to cover a paid subscription. The money is intended to cover the costs associated with video production.

Reasons to pay for watching porn movies:

  1. to get access to high-quality content;
  2. to support the industry;
  3. to cover the expenses associated with video production.

Of course, the production of porn is a really big and global industry. The time when porn producers earned really big money began in the late 1990s and ended by the beginning of the 2010s, with its peak being ​​in 2005–2007. In 2006, the annual money turnover in the global porn industry was about $96 billion (not much less than Hungary’s GDP of $114 billion, and almost two times more than Croatia’s GDP of $50.45 billion). For comparison, revenues of the global porn industry amounted to only about $ 2 billion in 2001.

The Internet itself has greatly contributed to the industry revenue increase. Approximately 35% of all information downloaded from the network was pornography; specialized sites with paid access were widely spread, and the number of their visitors exceeded 70 million people per month. At the same time, the main reason why the industry fell into a deep crisis after 2008 was the Internet.

It is, first of all, associated with the development of technology and an increase in network bandwidth. Thus, “porno-tubes” with free access to video (PornHub, xHamster, Redtube, etc.) began to receive the main revenue from advertising. Secondly, American Express refused to service transactions made on the sites. It is not because of some high moral values, but simply because approximately 10-15% of all paid porn sites were infected with cyber-worms and viruses stealing bank card data. AmeEx ban was followed by MasterCard and Visa, which abandoned the service of acquiring sexual content on the Internet.

But do not worry – the complete “death” of the sex video industry is not expected. Indeed, as long as there are those who are willing to pay for quality content, there will be those who will produce it. And today, there are more than 250 large studios that shoot “video for adults” in the USA, Europe, and Japan.
