Here at Modelhub and the Pornhub Model Program, the safety and wellbeing of our models, and of all sex workers, are our number one priorities.
That's why, in honor of the International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers, we're proud and excited to announce our new partnership with Pineapple Support, an online mental health service developed specifically for adult industry models and performers.
As we know, ours can be a trying industry, with its own unique set of struggles. While stigma associated with the adult industry is slowly starting to change, we know that being a part of this community can make certain relationships, conversations and situations very complicated. It can even take a toll on your emotional health. That's why we're making sure you have the resources you need to stay happy, healthy, and profitable.
Pineapple Support and Pornhub share a common goal - making sure that all sex workers and porn performers have access to the care they need.
Everybody deserves mental health services, but they can be inaccessible for a number of reasons - some models may not be able to find a provider that is sex-worker-friendly. Some others may simply not have good providers available in their area. Many others are unable to access mental health services due to prohibitive cost.
We're looking to change that.
All members of Modelhub and the Pornhub Model Program have unlimited, 24/7 access to Pineapple Support's network of mental health resources.
You'll be able to chat anonymously, for free, with one of Pineapple's Trained Listeners - they are specially trained to offer empathetic support, and listen to you without prejudice or stigma.
Chatting with a Trained Listener is completely free, and access to a licensed therapist through Pineapple Support is subsidized or also free.
Take care of yourself, so that you can keep taking care of business:
If you're able, please also consider donating in honor of International Day To End Violence Against Sex Workers, to help make sure everyone can have access to mental health services.
