Playboy has joined Pineapple Support as a sponsor, joining over 50 adult businesses and organizations in committing funds and resources to the organization.
“Pineapple Support provides a vital service for those in sex worker industry,” said Holly, associate director of subscriptions for Playboy. “We feel honored to partner up with such an organization. Mental health is something that had been overlooked in the industry before Pineapple Support. We look forward to working closely with them and bringing the issues to light and getting everyone the support they need.”
Leya Tanit, founder of Pineapple Support, welcomed the company as a partner.
“We are extremely grateful to Playboy for their support,” she said. “Having such a globally recognized adult brand means so much to an organization like ours, and helps take away some of the stigma from mental health. Our spending on therapy tripled due to COVID-19, with requests for therapy having risen 65% in the past six months alone, so support from our partners is critical to meet that need.”
