    Even with the spikes in coronavirus cases in Los Angeles, all if not most of the adult film companies from Brazzers to Naughty America are all hitting the pause button as far as filming is concerned.
    Similar to many bands both large and small in the music industry, both the many production crews and the performers themselves are extremely concerned if they will be able to earn money just so they can do a gang-bang scene or try to become the next Cytherea in squirting all over the place.

    Clearly, it won't be like it was during the first true internet explosion from 1996 and especially when Sunny Lane appeared on the former ABC News program Primetime Live in 2008 (when she sat down for a two-part interview with John Quinones.)

    Rolling Stone interviewed Casey Calvert, who is one of among several individuals who are extremely concerned if they will film the scenes fans love to see, whether on your smartphone or in some cases paying adult sites to have DVD's shipped to your home in discreet packaging.

    Bottom line, there is the fact that performers from the likes of Julia Ann, Brandi Love, Lauren Phillips, and Syren de Mer are independent contractors, meaning they do not have certain types of health insurance or another financial safety net should they get sick.

    No MILFs, No Squirting, No Gang Bangs: How the Porn Industry Is Changing During COVID-19

    Also worth noting is the amount of saliva and bodily fluids that are filmed in a typical day of shooting. Can you imagine how much that amount alone could lead to an outbreak?

    It would be like asking your favorite baseball team to high-five each other in the dugouts and eat sunflower seeds when it isn't their time at bat.

    I am interested to hear from other fans about what might be happening regarding the fate of adult films and the stars that film them, and if in fact the porn industry may or may not return in the future.

    The porn industry has been in transition since it's inception, starting out with magazines, moving to "stag" movies, then to adult movies/adult cinemas, home videos, dvd, the internet i.e home pc, laptop, tablets, cell phones. I think a lot of the adult companies will either close or be taken over by their larger competitors & a lot of the stars will start working freelance on sites like Only Fans & Pornhub, streaming scenes, potentially taking requests from paying fans as to who the fans want to see the star work with, therefore cutting out the studios.

    +1 to this. the fact is that with the advent of better/cheaper technology, the times are just changing. i remember when i was young that you had to go to a music label company to have any chance of becoming anything in the music industry. even the recording equipment was only affordable to the label company.

    fast forward to today and anyone can become a star in music. recording hardware and software can be had at very affordable prices and anyone can jumpstart their music careers without the need for label companies anymore. there are some amazing singers on youtube alone that never needed anything else and are doing quite well. if anything, it's forced people to become "better" to stand out because anyone can do it nowadays.

    covid is only advancing what was already there and forcing the virtual market place to take hold sooner and faster than we all were planning for.

    Point well taken, marriedasian.

    No question, with the rate of technology going at lightning speed--I find it very difficult to keep up with the enormous amount of information, apps, business websites, you name it.

    And the adult porn industry is falling privy to that. My feeling is, whenever CVOID-19 is finally contained and a vaccine is developed and distributed--it won't be the same as it was during most of the 2000's and throughout the 2010's (DVD's, Blu-Rays, video clips galore like xnxx.com and pics aplenty on other sites.)
