#Pornocalypse Capital

But that’s not why I’m blogging about this article. Instead, I want to commend it for its summary of the financial challenges faced by innovators in sex tech. It’s as neat a summary of the #pornocalypse phenomenon as I’ve seen, and it confirms my long-argued theory that it’s the involvement of the investor class that drives the exclusion of sexuality from any modern business or product:

This is a very important article...  

 

It exposes the blatant prejudice PayPal, Chase Bank & Square have toward the industry of sex. These are LEGAL and LICENSED businesses they are stopping from using their services online.

 

THIS is one of the reasons big corporations need to be subdued. Human beings tend to abuse power when it proves too much to handle.

Of course, no one at these companies would ever watch porn, go to a massage parlor or strip joint would they?

You’ll note that I accept Cash.Me for sending tips, thank you gifts, and the like at Cash.me/$2Rose. This has prompted a few questions on just how Cash.Me works.

First of all, you should know that Cash.Me aka Square Cash is a part of Square aka Square Up, so it is a safe and reliable company & highly favored for both the ease of use and the fact that there are no fees for sending money for personal use.

How the Financial Sector Is Making Life Miserable for Sex Workers | VICE United States

How the Financial Sector Is Making Life Miserable for Sex Workers | VICE United States | Sex Work | Scoop.it

In a recent article, VICE News speculated that the Department of Justice’s initiative Operation Choke Point may be putting pressure on banks like Chase to terminate the accounts of several high-profile porn performers, including Teagan Presley, Stoya, and Chanel Preston. On Twitter many other porn performers claimed that their accounts were being closed, and that they had been offered little explanation beyond being labeled “high risk.” An insider at Wells Fargo responded, “We encourage these industry workers to come to us," according to TMZ. By the time Mother Jones was pushing back with a “Chase representative” claiming that Choke Point was not singling out people in the porn industry, I was exasperated.

By and large, these articles failed to mention the fact that sex workers like myself are shut out of institutions every single day. Whorephobia, the fear and hatred of sex workers, is one of the very first things every single sex worker learns how to navigate.

Chase Bank Is Shutting Down Porn Actors' Bank Accounts | Sex Work | Scoop.it
Reportedly, Chase Bank recently sent letters to hundreds of porn performers informing them that their accounts will be shut down by mid-May. This isn't the first time Chase has targeted those who work in the adult industry -- and, sadly, I doubt it will be the last.
