Adult Webcam Experience Company ImLive Partners with Pineapple Support

ImLive Joins Forces with Pineapple Support to Provide Mental Health Services to Workers in the Online Adult Industry

ImLive.com, a site that offers the largest variety of adult webcam experiences, announced today a partnership with Pineapple Support, a free support and therapy service for all persons working in the online adult industry. Together, the two organizations are setting out to make sure that online sex workers have access to mental health services.

“Now more than ever, it is important for all of us to be aware of our mental health and take the necessary care. By partnering with Pineapple Support, we are making sure that not just ImLive hosts, but performers all across the industry have access to the best mental health services whenever they may need them,” said Adrian Stoneman, VP of Business for ImLive. “We are consistently looking for ways to give back to the community, and this partnership will go a long way in helping those in our ImLive family and beyond.”

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, which is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit in the United States and a registered charity in the UK, has so far connected over 1500 adult performers to mental health services, including free and low-cost, therapy, counseling and emotional support.

“We are incredibly grateful to ImLive for their support,” says Tanit. “Their generosity makes a huge difference to the lives of cam performers, as well as the overall strength of our industry. We’ve tripled our spend on therapy already due to COVID-19, and with industry leaders like ImLive behind us, we’re able to continue our mission to support the mental health and well-being of sex workers around the world.”

ImLive operates with approximately 85 million members and hosts in 100+ countries spanning every continent. Users have spent over $1 billion and more than half a million models have broadcast on the platform over the site’s history. The company’s diverse roster of cam models are passionate and committed to providing the best webcam experience possible, and as a result, the leading cam chat arena has pioneered some of the ultimate innovations in the space. Such innovations include the introduction of a remote device in 2005 that allowed users to control vibrators on the host side, as well as being the first cam site in 2016 to integrate technology of immediate cash outs where hosts can withdraw their earnings immediately after a session has ended.

ImLive has been in the news recently with the launch of several new campaigns, including around its “18th Birthday Wish-a-Thon,” for which it granted 18 wishes from host, members and the general public – one for each year it has been in business. Some of those granted already include initiatives that raised funds to plant trees across the world and help save the endangered Scrotum Frog of Lake Titicaca.
