Pineapple Support Kicks Off In-House Training and Support Package for Teams with Clips4Sale

Pineapple Support, the adult industry’s leading mental health nonprofit, has launched an in-house training and support program to help team members of sponsor organizations provide better care to both creators and peers and feel supported in their roles.


Clips4Sale is the first platform to fully invest in Pineapple Support’s training & support initiative. The package serves to equip team members with the knowledge and resources to better handle difficult situations and empower them with confidence and communication skills.


The program includes training, monthly support groups, and regular team check-ins:


In-house training package

Pineapple Support will provide Clips4Sale with five training modules, providing the knowledge to equip the team to better address complex and sometimes critical issues, from understanding sexuality and gender identity to identifying a performer in crisis.


In-house support groups

As part of the program, Pineapple Support is leading a monthly, in-house, 60-minute support group tailored to the Clips4Sale team’s needs — providing members with a support network, accountability, feedback, and different strategies for tackling difficult issues.


In-house check-ins

These mental well-being check-ins provide proactive support to look after the team itself, creating a space to discuss any stressors and providing support for anyone struggling. Additionally, a dedicated Pineapple Support therapist is on hand to provide check-in sessions with staff members upon request.


“As longtime members of the fetish community, C4S understands the vital importance of education and our responsibility to models and creators,” says Avery Martin of Clips4Sale. “We’re proud to work with Pineapple Support on this educational series, and to help those working in our industry do so in a way that is safe, aware, and supported.”


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 10,000 adult performers to mental health services, including free and low-cost therapy, counseling, and emotional support.


“Our in-house training and support package is designed to take care of the health and well-being of team members, helping them feel valued and supported while creating a sense of community and team spirit,” says Tanit. “By offering Pineapple’s training initiative to their staff members, Clips4Sale is demonstrating a real commitment to its creators and workers. In an increasingly diverse industry, all platforms should be working to ensure that those on them — and those working for them — are safe and supported. I’m thankful that they’ve trusted Pineapple Support to provide this training, and I’m excited to work with them.”


As an incentive for participating organizations, the full training and support package could potentially reduce liability insurance costs. Pineapple Support provides certificates that clearly outline all completed courses, which may be taken into consideration during insurance renewals.

Pineapple Support, Blue Pearl Therapy to Host Online Group SUPPORT for Survivors of Sexual Trauma

Pineapple Support has partnered with industry therapist Jasmine Johnson, (MSW, MA, LCSW) of Blue Pearl Therapy to host a five-week sexual trauma support program for 10-12 adult industry performers, beginning July 3, 2019.

“Jasmine was one of the very first therapists to offer her services to Pineapple Support,” says Leya Tanit, Founder and President of Pineapple Support. “She knows how important it is for performers who have experienced trauma to be able to talk with others with similar backgrounds. We hope these sessions will help performers build strong bonds and develop an on-going support network.”

Blue Pearl Therapy is a sex-worker-aware, stigma-free therapeutic practice that provides both online and offline therapy and coaching. Johnson is a licensed clinical social worker and gerontologist providing therapeutic services related to PTSD, depression and anxiety for over fifteen years.

Pineapple Support was launched by Tanit in response to a string of losses in the adult industry from depression and other mental illness. In its first year alone, Pineapple Support has connected over two hundred adult performers to mental health services including free and low-cost, therapy, counseling and emotional support.

“As an active clinical therapist and adult entertainer myself, I know first hand the challenges that can accompany accessing mental health support,” says Johnson.  “I have been elated to partner with Pineapple Support to help bridge the gap between mental health resources and sex workers.”

Johnson says performers can expect to meet online weekly with peers and a sex worker friendly therapist to discuss the impact of sexual trauma and coping skills. Performers can expect a judgement-free safe space where the only thing anyone need have in common is being a member of the adult industry community.

“One of the hardest things that adult performers face is stigma from the therapeutic community,” says Tanit, “We need to meet performers on their own terms, and in an environment that understands their needs.”

Pineapple Support is a registered 501(c)3 tax-deductible qualifying charity in the US, and a registered charity in the UK.
