The pornographic industry is experiencing its uberization. The nigerian porn studios are losing ground in the face of ordinary people who, thanks to simple smartphones, film and broadcast videos on the internet, offering in the process more diversity and proximity to Internet users in Nigeria and in the world.

They met seven years ago. “Lulu”, the guy, was finishing his studies in college, “Leo”, the Lagos girl, was looking to resume them. Both then unfold their strategy to launch their careers in sectors that it will be quite respectable to mention at a dinner in town. But in parallel with their career plan, the two lovebirds discover a mutual passion for "nudes". They regularly send photos of their bodies to Snapchat. Rather pretty photos. “We didn't live in the same city, so I was putting effort into aesthetics,” says Leo.

This attraction to nudity is also reflected in parts of legs in the air in public spaces (toilets, street or countryside). From simple exchanges of photos, they move on to exhibitionist clubs. They also start to make "cams", direct where hundreds, even thousands of Internet users come to watch them make love in front of their camera. Several hours during which they host a "show". Objective: to make the show exciting enough to entice viewers to ask them to do things… for a tip.

“It was entertainment, you had to keep the crowd warm for a very long time,” he recalls. “After a while, we didn't have enough time for these 'lives' and we preferred to produce real videos. This is where the Leo & Lulu tandem was born on PornHub, one of the main pornographic video platforms.

Webcam sites in the top 20

At the end of six months, their channel counts one million views. Four months later, the figure is already multiplied by five. Today, four years after the launch, they have accumulated no less than 700 million views. With a remuneration of between 60 and 65 cents per 1,000 views, Leo & Lulu would have received according to our calculations more than 400,000 euros from PornHub. It's been two years since they stopped their “classic” career to live solely on this activity, which they decline beyond PornHub since they found an audience on Instagram or OnlyFans, a platform on which you pay a subscription. to access accounts.

Like Leo & Lulu, several couples have embarked on amateur porn, attracted by the idea of ​​making money while satisfying an exhibitionist desire. The pattern is often the same: like them, they cut their teeth on webcam sites. Proof of this enthusiasm: in France, according to the Alexa ranking (Amazon subsidiary), Chaturbate, one of the market leaders for cam sites, is the 18th most visited site, ahead of PornHub (22nd), Cdiscount and the main French media. But not all of them know the glory of Leo & Lulu who had the chance (or the flair) to be among the first couples to get started in France. Now the competition is stiff.

Onlyfans boom during confinement
For oral sex, penetration or sodomy, Internet users pay the “performers” for the act they want to see take place before their eyes. Many can enjoy the show without paying a euro. This so-called “freemium” model has shaken up the traditional market where actors (often actresses) had to be paid from the start for a video session. From now on, the tip is king and it is to the one who will know how to be the most convincing.

Caught in world competition, the “performers” must be more convincing than the webcam on the right animated by an American or the one on the left animated by a Romanian. It seems to be working given the attendance figures. And containment has come to boost this market. Camgirls have been drowning in demand for shows.

To satisfy their customers, they are also investing in paid platforms from the outset, such as OnlyFans or Patreon, the new playgrounds for camgirls and pornographic actors. Founded in 2016, OnlyFans has received more than 3.7 million new registrations and welcomed 60,000 new content creators since March 1, a 75% increase in one month, according to the company. The platform has benefited greatly from the popularity of singer Beyoncé who mentioned OnlyFans last April in her cover of “Savage” by rapper Megan Thee Stallion, a very popular song with TikTok challenges during confinement. Unsurprisingly, the company gained a peak audience of 15%. Just that ! It now has 20 million users.

A lucrative business
On OnlyFans, everyone has their own prices! Creators charge between five and 50 euros per month to access their content. Their earnings also vary depending on the tips paid by their fans. This activity can be very profitable. Last March, one of the stars of the platform, Monica Huldt, a creator of adult content based in Los Angeles, told Business Insider that she earns almost 100,000 dollars (92,000 euros) per year thanks to her OnlyFans account. . Of course, this success is not given to everyone; a large part of it does not earn more than a few hundred euros per month.

The platform only receives 20% of creators' earnings when on YouTube the remuneration varies depending on the algorithm. For a special request (a show in underwear with a plush) Monica Huldt charges 150 dollars (131 euros), in addition to the subscription. “It wasn't anything sexual, I just had to oil myself and sit on the bear's face,” says the content creator who is also very active on Instagram, where she posts more sophisticated shots. On OnlyFans, she prefers homemade photos taken with her phone and shares selfies and "nudes" that she could not post on Instagram where the representation of sex remains banned. “On OnlyFans, the idea is to be close to the community,” she explains. The influencer spends an average of two hours a day to respond to around fifty messages a day.

Amateur porn offers more diversity and closeness
With the explosion of OnlyFans and "cam" sites, mainstream porn is taking a hit. Some describe a standardized industry that flaunts bodies as perfect as they cannot be found in real life. Amateur porn shows a diversity, often shunned or caricatured by the big X studios. Others accuse a pornography too distant, too cold, where the scenario written in advance and the absence of exchange between actors and spectators prevent identification, proximity.

Even the overly polished image seems less attractive. Leo & Lulu made this observation when they wanted to professionalize their equipment. They bought a state-of-the-art camera and lamp. “We quickly realized that it was less good to show people, even if the quality of the image was better,” says Lulu. “A GoPro and a phone, it works very well! "

Uberization of the sector
Almost all professional actors now sell their own videos in addition to their studio shoots. This transformation is reflected in the sources of income. In a recent article in The Economist, the director of Private, a major porn producer headquartered in Barcelona, ​​found that while ten years ago, three quarters of actors' income came from producers and one quarter from personal business, the proportions are now reversed. The disintermediation of the sector is such that it is sometimes more interesting for certain players to remain amateurs.

As for amateur pornstars, out of the question to go the other way, even for a big check. “It wouldn't be very interesting for us to work for studios,” says Lulu. “Today, we produce the content we want and we make a good living. They would have nothing more to offer us. Some studios understood the revolution that was at work and decided to embrace the change. The Brazzers studio has created a platform to provide access to all personal content produced by its actors, against a commission.

Proximity to double-edged players
During confinement, where filming was stopped for obvious reasons of unresolved barrier gestures, amateur porn allowed professional actors to make ends meet. French actress Luna Rival said her OnlyFans account saved her life. She was able to earn 1,200 euros per month while everything was closed. Or this American mother and stripper who tells the Huffington post that her videos allowed her to feed her family while in lockdown.

But this closeness offered by amateur porn can also be a risk to the safety of people. To protect themselves from it, Vic Alouqua, a 26-year-old actress who has OnlyFans, Instagram (41,000 subscribers), Pornhub and Facebook accounts, has a very clear message: “No Google Hangout, no WhatsApp, no Snapchat, no meeting and no phone number ”.

For Nina, another 24-year-old camgirl, who does not hesitate to contribute her “fan base” for the purchase of equipment, the limit with prostitution is more tenuous. “Well, this summer I really want to level up on photos and videos. I have already invested in a ring light and a tripod and I need a little help with the camera. You can help me via PayPal ”, indicates the young woman in a tweet, published in early July. She redirects her customers to her PayPal account, Cam4, OnlyFans or even two “Amazon wishlists”, one professional and the other personal, it's up to you to choose between the purchase of a microphone and the fruit juice extractor. Gift certificates are also accepted.
