Do you think a lot of amateur porn is people who have been kidnapped, or are being blackmailed, etc.? It's the only way I can explain why someone would do something sexual on film, knowing those images will be floating out there forever. We're talking about thousands of people, all over the world (and some of those "teens" are obviously not yet 18).
If you ever plan on remaining legitimately employed, why on earth would you show your ass (and face) on camera?
I like to imagine they are being held captive and forced to do porn under threats of death and promises of meth.
It makes it so much hotter.
The kind of porn that's used with models procured via sex trafficking is the kind with an underground following (e.g., kiddie porn, snuff films, raped/unconscious victims, etc.). The mass market stuff generally features people who are dirt poor or have low self esteem. Charismatic pornographers will prey on them by throwing around money and compliments, and then they'll make it seem like the model has a choice ("Even though I spent all this money on you and treated you special, you don't have do do anything you don't want to!").
To seal the deal, a lot of models are promised that the pornographic content that's produced will only be sold in markets abroad (European companies use this one). Companies like Sean Cody and Corbin Fisher scout for amateur talent, fly them out, pick them up in limos, and take them to nice restaurants before taking fairly innocent beefcake shots. Barebacking and higher earning opportunities are offered once the waters are tested...
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
