Model Centro: Make Your Own Professional Member's Only Site | Sex Work | Scoop.it

You make magic, we help you turn it into a business!


When you perform, the outpouring of support from fans feeling the connection is magic. Keep that connection & support flowing even when you’re offline with ModelCentro.


Social networks are great for keeping people connected, but no place to share private moments with your most supportive fans. ModelCentro gives you all the great ways to stay connected of a social network and the privacy & discretion you need by helping you create & run your own VIP paid membership site. No experience required!


...There are absolutely no hidden charges or obligations, no monthly fees either. ModelCentro service charges are  based on a revenue share model - that means you pay only a commission deducted as a percentage from your site revenue. As for obligations - you are free to close your site at any time and stop getting new members. The only obligation you will have is the obligation to your fans who already subscribed. Upon closing down your site you will still need to provide site access and site materials to existing members until their subscription period ends in order to avoid chargebacks and money loss.

This Tech Startup Is Helping the Cops Track Sex Workers Online | Sex Work | Scoop.it
Rescue Forensics claims it can scrape "massive quantities of data" from online escort ads and give that information to law enforcement, but advocates for sex workers say that such a service doesn't help anyone.
Gracie Passette's insight:

More people jumping in to profit by "saving" ~ this time with tech that is dangerous to sex workers and others.

Privacy for Normal People

Privacy for Normal People | Sex Work | Scoop.it
My latest Guardian column, Privacy technology everyone can use would make us all more secure, makes the case for privacy technology as something that anyone can -- and should use, discussing the work being done by the charitable Simply Secure foundation that launches today (site is not yet up as of this writing), with the mandate to create usable interfaces to cryptographic tools, and to teach crypto developers how to make their tools accessible to non-technical people.

More bang for your buck: How new technology is shaking up the oldest business

More bang for your buck: How new technology is shaking up the oldest business | Sex Work | Scoop.it

Now specialist websites and apps are allowing information to flow between buyer and seller, making it easier to strike mutually satisfactory deals. The sex trade is becoming easier to enter and safer to work in: prostitutes can warn each other about violent clients, and do background and health checks before taking a booking. Personal web pages allow them to advertise and arrange meetings online; their clients’ feedback on review sites helps others to proceed with confidence.


Even in places such as America, where prostitution and its facilitation are illegal everywhere except Nevada, the marketing and arrangement of commercial sex is moving online. To get round the laws, web servers are placed abroad; site-owners and users hide behind pseudonyms; and prominently placed legalese frames the purpose of sites as “entertainment” and their content as “fiction”.

Gracie Passette's insight:

The Economist brings you info on the tech side as well as data (however accurate you may believe it to be) on average rates , including ethnicity, weight, and other "beauty" standards, by location, etc.involved in sex work ~ tho they insist on using the word "prostitution". Mainly focused on female sex workers.


I am still digesting this article.

Where Your Adult Site Visitors Went – ErosBlog: The Sex Blog

Where Your Adult Site Visitors Went – ErosBlog: The Sex Blog | Sex Work | Scoop.it

If, like me, you’ve maintained (for a few years, or a dozen) an adult blog or adult site of any kind, you might have noticed that your number of readers has gone down (a little or a lot) in recent years. Did you wonder why? Did you wonder where those readers went? Did people get tired of looking at sex online?


No. Listen as Business Insider explains:

Gracie Passette's insight:

Yes, there could be an app for that ~ you might even make one. But who let you distribute it?

Warning: A Low Battery Can Be A Threat To Your PSO Business

Warning: A Low Battery Can Be A Threat To Your PSO Business | Sex Work | Scoop.it

An associate of mine recently reviewed a couple of cell phone battery chargers (here and here) and I was reminded, yet again, of how my favorite Bluetooth headset battery has a much shorter life than my smartphone. The difference in battery life could mean the headset would “die”, resulting in dropped calls — if I wasn’t prepared ahead of time for very long calls. “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail,” is a huge motto of mine, so I believe in back-up plans for the back-up plan.

SXSW: Adult Industry Faces Struggles To Keep Up With Technology | Sex Work | Scoop.it

Overall, there was an obvious dividing point between the older members of the panel like Kopita and Daughn and the younger panelists of Blue and Lani. While the older panelists were grasping at anything to claim as technological innovation on porn’s part or lamenting the money lost by piracy, the younger panelists discussed that a change in perception of what porn is and how people experience it needs to happen for the industry to thrive.
