Erotik.com Joins Pineapple Support as Sponsor

LOS ANGELES — Erotik.com has joined Pineapple Support at the Partner level, joining over four-dozen adult companies to commit funds and resources to help the organization provide mental health resources to performers and other adult industry members.

“We have all read the sad news of the past few years,” said Erotik.com’s Sascha E. “Each of these cases had touched me deeply. When I got to know Leya and her team and saw firsthand the passion with which they wanted to help our industry, it was immediately clear to me that we would support them.”

Erotik.com describes itself as “a market leader in adult VOD and retail in Europe.” Founded over fifteen years ago as DVDErotik.com, Erotik boasts of “one of the most extensive libraries in Europe.”

“We are thrilled to have the support of Erotik.com,” said Leya Tanit, President of Pineapple Support. “With industry leaders like Erotik.com behind us, we’re able to continue our mission to support the mental health and well-being of sex workers around the world.”

Tanit founded Pineapple Support in 2018 after several high-profile losses in the adult community from depression and mental illness. The organization has connected over 500 performers to mental health services.

PornDiscounts.com To Help Fund Pineapple Support With Stormy Daniels

Porn Discounts has committed to donating $1 from each membership sale from their Stormy Daniels email campaign “Make America Cum Again” to Pineapple Support, the adult industry’s leading mental health resource.

“The work that Pineapple Support does for our performers really aims to make the adult industry great again, so we could think of no better way to support them then by tying it to our “MACA” campaign.” says Porn Discounts co-founder V_RocKs.

To join in and do your part all you have to do is send an email to Stormy@porndiscounts.com and they will reply with five deals that will save you a bundle of money! Plus, for each sale made through this email campaign, Porn Discounts will donate $1 each to Pineapple Support and the K9’s for Warriors charity — two of Stormy’s favorite charities.

Pineapple Support was launched in 2018 by Leya Tanit, in response to a string of losses in the adult industry from depression and other mental illnesses. The organisation, which is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit in the United State and a registered charity in the UK, has so far connected nearly five hundred adult performers to mental health services; including free and low-cost, therapy, counseling and emotional support.

“Porn Discounts has been incredibly supportive of the work we do at Pineapple Support, and has found an inventive, clever way to raise funds for the work we do in the community,” says Leya Tanit, founder of Pineapple Support. “The initiative adult companies have shown for helping further the work we do is staggering. We thank Porn Discounts joining the fight for improved performer well-being.”

JustFor.Fans Launches Charitable Giving Program

Today, fast-growing fan site JustFor.Fans is breaking new ground in adult entertainment by ushering in an era of “Ethical Spending” in porn. The site has launched its JFF Charitable Giving program, in which models can opt to donate a percentage of their incomes to specific charities that have agreed to work with JFF. Models’ profiles will list what percentages they are giving to which charities, and users can browse models based on who is giving to charity.

JFF creator Dominic Ford says, “We believe that ‘Ethical Spending,’ in which consumers want to know where their money is going (and base their spending on this), should be expanded to the adult industry, where it currently is not. We are proud to be the first adult company to institutionalize charitable giving as part of the DNA of our platform, and our community.

JustFor.Fans is a community, and part of being a community is giving back to those less fortunate. We have tried to find national charities that represent our various sub-communities, and we aren’t done looking for more. Currently, our charities cover SESTA/FOSTA fights for sex workers, mental health for sex workers, and the Trans Life Line for the trans community. We are actively looking for other charities in the areas of women’s health and LBGT issues to help round out our initial round of charities. It’s hard to find charities that will work with a porn site. As more charities come on board, we will add them to the site so our models can have an even larger choice of where to donate their money.”

The program is launching with 4 organizations:

The Free Speech Coalition, the nation trade organization for the adult industry
Pineapple Support, which provides mental health support for the adult industry
Trans Lifeline, which connects trans people to the community, support, and resources they need to survive and thrive. Their peer hotline cares for trans people through moments of crisis and suicidality and their Microgrants program provides low-barrier grants to trans people in need of legal name changes and updated government IDs.
Woodhull Freedom Foundation, which is the leading fighter of SESTA/FOSTA.

“We are proud to partner with JustFor.Fans. It is so exciting to have a platform that empowers fans and performers to support communities that are meaningful to them. Crowdsourced fundraising opportunities like this are absolutely vital to power our work connecting trans people to the community, support and resources they need to survive and thrive,” says Elena Rose Vera, Executive Director of Tran Lifeline.

“We’re incredibly grateful for support from JustFor.Fans and the performers on its platform. Fixing the crisis of mental health doesn’t come from financial contributions alone, but by building a broader, more inclusive support network. JustFor.Fans innovative charitable giving program provides both, not only helping us get the needed funds to provide services, but also by spreading awareness to the performers, empowering them become part of the solution. Thanks to platforms like JustFor.Fans, performers have more independence and control than ever before — but it also means we need to increase our efforts to foster connection. Their charitable giving program reflects JustFor.Fans commitment to performers, and in making sure that while we may be separated by distance, we are never alone. We are immensely proud that they have chosen us to be one of the first beneficiaries of this program,” says Leya Tanit, Founder and President of Pineapple Support.
