I have been busy as fuck this summer with Prides, filming, International travel and keeping my JustFor.Fans/Billysantoroxxx updated multiple times daily. I work very hard on everything I do as do a lot of performers who are creating content. I always advised performers to make that money! Put that content everywhere you can sell it. Hell, I even buy it from you for LeakedandLoaded.com! But I have been hearing from lots of models that a new performer-produced content platform has come to the market. 4myfans. I didn’t check it out right away because 1) I am busy and 2) I feel like between OnlyFans, JustFor.Fans, I Want Clips, Clips4Sale, ManyVids, LeakedandLoaded.com that the market has become saturated to an extent. But something was unique about this site….
Austin Wolf is the owner. A fellow porn performer. Great! That’s awesome! I love when performers take on the entrepreneurial spirit! I remember when he started Rentboy.us just after Rentboy was shut down. I don’t think it ever caught on. Rentmen seemed to be poised to fill in that gap. I was asked if I would join Austin’s site. I said no. I was a hard NO for multiple reasons. Some personal which have no bearing on this article although it does speak to his character…IN MY OPINION. But, I kept that to myself when porn boys would ask me if I thought they should join it. I merely asked them one question: Is the traffic there to sustain the work you put into it? For me, it never would be. Onlyfans is hugely successful, but has serious customer service issues. Then Dominic Ford created JustFor.Fans which kills the competition. You literally must join that site to be seen on a larger scale. My advice is always, start with JustFor.fans. Create content. Then start Onlyfans…then Manyvids. That should be enough to manage and get your product to slightly different markets.
I was told by many performers that they had to quit JFF and OF if they were going to be on Austin’s site. What? Why? Is he paying you an special exclusivity fee? What is the benefit in that? Why would Austin force this? I mean, he certainly has the right to run his company however he so pleases. He should! But I told some of the guys who have come to me about it…NO. Don’t join that site. You will not make money. Onlyfans and JustForFans are mandatory due to traffic. If you want to add other platforms, fine. But never be exclusive unless it benefits YOU.
I thought about it a little bit last night. I think it may stem from the fact that Austin, the performer, has always been an exclusive model. He was never permitted to work for other studios. Maybe this is why he treats content producers the same way. But, that never works. You attract more flies with sugar, not vinegar. I wish Austin the best of luck. The fact that is he trying to build something ‘new’ is always good. But it has to be new at this point or there is no reason to try it.
