6 Reasons Why You Should Start Paying For Porn

Porn is free in the modern era. Well, it is for the most part. Anyone with an internet connection can now access porn thanks to free video-sharing websites, image message boards, and websites like Reddit. However, this does not necessarily mean that the porn available for free is the best porn. In fact, a lot of the highest-quality porn still has a price tag, which is great for both men and porn stars.

1. It's Not That Expensive

You already pay for Netflix (here are the top 15 action movies available there) and magazine subscriptions. So why is porn any different? One of the biggest websites and production studios, RealityKings, charges $9.99 per month for a year of access, which is roughly the same as most other major websites (as opposed to Netflix, which ranges from $7.99 to 11.99).

2. You Get Higher-Quality Stuff

In contrast to free sites, most paid porn sites provide downloads, 4K resolution, and even virtual reality porn. Drake claimed that a lot of websites also provide special fan interactions, such as live cam shows with celebrities. Additionally, products for interactive pleasure like Kiiroo's FeelMe can sync with the video you're watching and improve your experience with some pleasant vibrations.

Paying for porn also saves you time because most websites have extensive, full-length libraries of a particular style or genre of sex, while some, like Kink.com, only offer fetish-heavy content. When following a performer's career online, subscribing to their company's or production team's website or even their personal page can provide a more personal experience than searching through the internet's dispersed collection of free clips.

3. It Supports The Industry

This is really the crux of the matter. The porn industry suffered greatly after porn began to circulate online for free (Men's Health did a thorough investigation into who was still paying for porn back in 2014). Free video sharing websites, according to Drake, "have destroyed our industry, bankrupted people and businesses, and eliminated many jobs — both for those in front of and behind the camera."

Drake claims that purchasing porn directly benefits the individuals who keep the adult market appealing and prosperous. "When a customer joins a paid porn site, a subscription service, or buys a DVD, they're supporting the actual people who created the product," she said. "In essence, they're enabling that site, company, or person to continue to create more porn." There is already a lot of porn available online, but if no revenue is generated, the industry will eventually stop producing new content. Without new porn, masturbating will quickly become boring due to the "Coolidge effect," which holds that new partners and sexual experiences are inherently exciting.

4. It Doesn't Have To Show Up On Your Credit Card

Look, every porn website on the internet is aware that you don't want a record of your most private purchases posted online. Almost every website uses an intermediary or a vendor account with an innocent-sounding name to process credit card transactions. For instance, WowGirls advertises as "VendoStoreEpic" and guarantees that all transactions will be handled securely. Nothing from an online purchase will shout, "Hey, this guy's looking at porn over here!" if you're really determined to keep your porn purchases hidden from a significant other or someone else who might be reading your statements.

5. It's Safer

At some point or another, almost everyone who connected to the internet during puberty made the error of clicking on the incorrect link out of a hormonal urge to leave. While ad blockers and effective virus protections can significantly reduce the risk, there's always a chance that exploring the depths of online porn will infect your computer with a digital STI. Computer viruses are still a significant threat on many free porn sites.

Drake claims that joining a well-known paid website significantly lowers your risk of contracting computer viruses. A 2012 security study found that you were more likely to get a virus on a religious or church website than a porn website. However, further navigating image boards and smaller streaming sites can still be risky. The major tube sites, like Pornhub, have developed strong defenses against malware. Paid websites, on the other hand, rely much less on pop-up ads and other browser-clogging click-grabbers, making the overall experience cleaner and safer.

6. It's The Right Thing To Do

It's true that almost everyone who accesses content online has illegally streamed a TV show or a movie, so watching porn may not seem like a big deal. However, according to Drake, it continues to undermine the credibility of the sector.

Even though porn is gaining more mainstream recognition, we are still not seen as a legitimate industry, according to Drake. "People are still getting away with it (most of the time). "Our worth and value are not respected because we are perceived as somewhat less valuable human beings. Would you enter a restaurant, order a delicious meal, enjoy yourself, and then leave without paying?"

She makes a convincing case. Pulling a dine-and-dash isn't the worst sin in the world, and a restaurant is likely to survive it in the long run. However, the porn industry has evolved into a fast-food joint with a rotating door where almost everyone eats and leaves; this is not a viable business model. The truth is that porn won't be produced if people don't pay for it, and that's not enjoyable for anyone involved
