Pineapple Support, the adult industry’s leading mental health nonprofit, is pleased to welcome Benefit Monkey as a supporter-level sponsor. The ethical porn specialist joins over sixty adult businesses and organizations in committing funds and resources to the organization.
“Pineapple Support fulfills a very important mission towards every person in this industry,” says Alex ‘The Monkey,’ CEO of Benefit Monkey. “Since the partnership between Benefit Monkey and Los Huequitos began, we have joined forces to improve the production environment and make our industry a more comfortable place to work. Sponsoring Pineapple Support is a small action that each of us should commit to taking — their services are an important part of the health of this industry and of every sex worker.”
“We have joined forces to improve the production environment and make our industry a more comfortable place to work.”
Pineapple Support was founded by British performer Leya Tanit in 2018, after a string of losses in the adult industry from depression and other mental illnesses. The organization, a qualified 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization in the United States, has connected over 5,000 adult performers to mental health services, including free and low-cost therapy, counseling, and emotional support.
“I’m so grateful to Benefit Monkey for their support,” says Tanit. “Thanks to donors like them, we are reaching record numbers of performers with life-saving services. Donors enable us to work every day to answer questions, provide referrals, and offer subsidized sessions to those who need it most. As an industry, it’s crucial that we come together, and I’m thrilled to have Benefit Monkey alongside us.”
