Director Joshua on a New Breed of Piracy: Voting Piracy

He writes: “It’s time for a wake-up call, people. Clearly, Twitter has its place in the Adult World, and adult stars, producers, directors and fans are some of the biggest aggregate users of Twitter.

Twitter is a great marketing tool, and a great way to directly interact with fans and win awards. The F.A.M.E. Awards, NightMoves and Exotic Dancer Awards use fan-based voting and clearly can be won or lost by the use or lack thereof Twitter.

Besides my role as a director for skinworXXX, I am also a publicist at my core, and I am one of the bigger proponents/flagrant abusers of Twitter vote soliciting. Fans of Teagan Presley and Eva Angelina come out in droves to appearances and fan-based voting contests, and it is a huge benefit to us as a company. BUT, Twitter fan-based voting has officially gone too far.

This topic has been commented on already by such noted columnists as Ryan Razer of LukeFord.com, but clearly the message is not loud and clear enough, so I will expand on it and drive home a point ALL of us need to listen to, fans and industry pro’s alike. For the last few years, the driving message from studios in the Adult world is that piracy is killing the DVD business.

We all agree: Tube sites and download sites stealing our products is a heinous crime that continues. No one on the business side of adult wants to have others making money on our product we spend hard dollars and hours on, yet we are letting it happen on a new front, and happening aggressively.

I may be relatively new to the Adult Business, BUT I am not new to business. Every time a hottest girl on Twitter contest or most popular porn star contest pops up on Twitter, porn stars and publicists instantly start tweeting about these contests, and then fans retweet.

Twitters uses vote. By the thousands. With the Twisty’s Treat of the Year contest (which was for money), fans voted forty thousand times between Bree Olson and Eva Angelina, and that was primarily a result of huge viral marketing on Twitter. That contest had an end date and a prize, but none of these new contests have either, and yet we all still engage this non-sense because of our own vanity and push the ever-loving shit out of them, as do our fans.

Today, I was notified that I was up on a new contest as one of the hottest male Tweeps. Now, I am as vain or more vain then anyone, and I think I am a pretty well-rounded guy and not too shabby-looking guy, but I am sure this wasn’t the point of nominating me. The proprietors of this new contest, one of six or seven running now, obviously knew that I would attack this for Eva, Teagan and myself aggressively, and I did then I sat down and thought about this.

EVERY SINGLE TIME A FAN, A PORN STAR, A DIRECTOR, A PRODUCER, A PUBLICIST VISIT ONE OF THESE SITES AND VOTE THAT’S TRAFFIC FOR THAT SITE! Traffic equals dollars in their pocket and exposure. The big name girls up for these contests like Teagan, Eva, Jenna Haze or any of the other 100+ girls listed are ALREADY famous. Let’s not support them by voting and wasting tweets on a contest that offers no prize other than a bogus title, and doesn’t even have an end date. They don’t want an end date, as they know our vanity will continue this voting and tweeting on indefinitely.

Let’s save our votes for the contests that have prizes or true meaning, like the Exotic Dancer Awards, F.A.M.E. Awards, Nightmoves, RogReviews, etc. Life is not a popularity contest; porn is but let’s not put more money in someone else’s pocket. Let’s retake our business and make great product again that people will want to buy NOT steal.

I have spent hundreds of hours as have some of our fans working on these contests that have no end, and I feel like I just got slowly ass-raped over months. If you are gonna ass-rape me, please buy me dinner and promptly shoot me right after you are done.”
