The social and mental effects of mainstream porn consumption are concerning as it is. But the personalized negative consequences reach a whole new level when porn victimizes someone. You get things like deepfakes porn and revenge porn , trends that allow non-consenting victims who have no affiliation with the porn industry to be exploited with explicit content of them online. Overwhelmingly , people—often porn performers—use these premium s to offer explicit sexual footage of themselves. If you pay someone for premium access, you can expect a regular influx of her self-made porn, straight to your Snapchat.
Premium holders can enjoy avoiding their s being flagged and deleted by Snapchat by making these s private—people who are paying for access want the explicit content and have paid for it, and so are unlikely to report the . Mostly women, these holders advertise their premiums on other social platforms like Facebook and Instagram and accept payment through Venmo, Paypal, or whatever money transfer app they prefer. Seems like a supply and demand issue—consenting customers get what consenting performers provide. Not exactly. Here are several issues we see at first glance.
These premium s further confuse the true nature of porn. Is it fantasy, or is it reality? Is it both? Personal experience and science and research all show, however, that this idea is false. Porn has been shown to leave consumers with less connection to others and less fulfilling sex lives.
Sending explicit content to a minor is illegal. Also, what assurances does a subscriber have that a premium content creator is enthusiastically consenting to create personalized content, free from financial or other circumstantial pressures? This is a very unsupported and unregulated system with a lot of loopholes for illicit behavior. These premium Snapchat s certainly are not the first way people have used social media for sexual purposes, but it is a giant step over that boundary that separates the explicit world of porn from our everyday human lives. Social media at its best is for connecting with people in a healthy way, enhancing and sharing our lives in a way that celebrates them.
And as we all know, the majority of the population today, especially teens and millennials, use social media for everyday purposes…all the time. With personalized porn being directly marketed and sold on everyday social, people can be unwittingly confronted with the realities of porn rather than having to specifically choose to navigate to porn sites. You may have to pay to access the actual material, but the reality and discussion can still pop up anytime and blur that line.
It is already a problem that men and women, under social and financial pressure, feel the sex industry is their only option to make ends meet. This is where consent and trafficking becomes disturbingly comingled. There is already evidence that people are creating these s out of desperation—in those cases, the force or coercion of a trafficking situation would be financial. This trend is leading to entire new companies and facets of the porn industry. The app OnlyFans is growing in popularity, too, gaining traffic from Snapchat premium aficionados who want the same Snapchat perks with the official backing of a company rather than a loose assurance from the premium holder that the content will continue.
They want a [girlfriend or] boyfriend experience. They want to fantasize about someone that they want to have sex with and not feel disgusted by it. So why are people becoming increasingly willing to pay money for these fan-based porn experiences when so much free content exists? Because of this, people are willing to pay for a brand of porn that promises connection and fulfillment as a pseudo-substitute for a real relationship. Only real relationship and love can do that. The human metaphorical heart can be smarter than the brains in a lot of ways—even if we think this new flavor of porn will solve relational cravings, our hearts will continue to be unsatisfied until we ditch porn completely and seek love that is real, healthy, mutual, and committed.
