Whenever I hear about people (Women) making waves in male dominated industries I get inspired. It makes me want to go even harder with my own shit.Mills is also right that people pay for porn. Subscription sites are less popular these days, but the adult industry has been taken over by direct-to-consumer services like premium Snapchats and camming. On sites like MyFreeCams and LiveJasmin, millions of viewers pay for programming every month, not by way of subscriptions or sales, but through “tips,” a credit system built into the webpages that allow viewers to compensate performers for carrying out certain tasks. The data on annual earnings is hard to calculate, but The New York Times estimated in 2013 that camming netted $1 billion annually, and the business has only grown since. (At the AVN Expo this year, the sheer economic force of MyFreeCams, who sponsored the whole ceremony, was on full display—their booths took up nearly half the floor space).
Between all her different series, which have merged on Adult Time, Mills has about 100,000 paid subscribers. They pay for plans ranging from $2.95 for a three-day trial to $9.95 a month for a year-long plan including streaming and downloads. She’s shooting for 1 million subscribers, but says anything that sustains the projects “would be great.” In an economy obsessed with constant growth, unicorn ventures, and “progressive content strategies,” valuing production over profits is pretty much the most disruptive thing possible.
