I think at first they would make less money, but as it got out there that that’s what they were doing, it’d grow. Porn stars would probably move to that company over time.
Oh definitely, if the company treated the actors correctly and cared for them the way they should then there would definitely be a flock to them. I’m just saying I need a hell of a kickstarter find to get this off the ground.
whoever starts this will be a real money maker in the end.
I just need some partners.
A study on the long-term financial viability of such a venture should be done first. But if it could happen, I’m totally in.
How would one even test that? Doing a long term test is unreasonable (and quite honestly a waste of time) but doing a test that measures enjoyability of said porn, willingness to indulge/spend money on it, and measuring levels of aggression afterward would be more telling.
There are ways to test it as a financial decision, but it would go completely against the point of the objective.
Not really. The point of any business is to make money. If you’re losing money then the business will fail and your work will be for nothing. I think there is a need for an analysis of the long-term financial viability. That’s just basic business 101. It’s not saying the STUDY is long term, it’s a test as to whether or not your business will be likely to stand the test of time.
Wouldn’t take much to get a rough idea of the financial viability of it. Commission a study/survey to see if people who purchase porn are likely to spend more per purchase on products from the “ethical” company, or if they are to purchase less quantity from the “un-ethical” companies and more quantity on the “ethical” company. Be far less risky to do that, and far cheaper.
Challenge two would be to ensure it doesn’t jump the shark like SG, et al. Good luck with that one.
Challenge three would be to obtain exclusive services of a few big names early on in the game.
Margins are pretty shit for that stuff, that’s why there’s such quantity. You’ll either have to sell a fuckload, or charge more for each.
Excellent article! I am glad to see that this is already happening.
Get research together and I’ll put money into it.
