 “Exclusivity” has gotten such a bad rap over the years, and we totally get it. We’re feeling woozy just thinking about it. But being exclusive with Pornhub isn’t what you think — it’s about protecting your content from being used by other tubes sites without your permission.

Pornhub-exclusive models benefit from fully-automated copyright protection, meaning we scan free tube sites to see if they’re using any of your free and for-sale content without your consent. If so, we’ll remove them with a DCMA takedown notice. It’s automatic, so you wouldn’t have to worry about a thing!

This only applies to free tubes sites, so feel free to sell your videos on other non-free sites or post them on your own website.

As an added bonus, we also offer a 5% payout increase for your free videos on Pornhub and all your content will be included in the Exclusive category.

Still debating? Let’s break it down.

- Pornhub-exclusive models can upload content on Pornhub, their own website, and other non-free sites.

- Free and for-sale videos will have copyright protection and will be removed from free tube sites with a takedown notice.

- Pornhub-exclusive models will receive an extra 5% payout on all free videos.

- Pornhub-exclusive models will have their content appear in the Exclusive category on Pornhub

- You keep ownership rights of all the content you upload to Pornhub. 

- If you change your mind, you can opt out. 

If you want to give it a go and become exclusive, it’s as easy as checking off a box. The next time you’re on Pornhub, simply click on your profile photo and select “Model.” This is your profile page with all your details.

Scroll all the way down to where it says “Opt-In To Automatically Protect Your Copyrighted Videos On Other Websites.” Read through the paragraph about being exclusive and if you agree to the terms, simply check off the box, add your initials, and save. 


If you have any questions, send us a DM on Twitter @PornhubHelp , comment below, or click on the “Help” button at the bottom of your profile page.

hey guys - We've been with PH for a while now, they've always treated us great. My husband and I have been in adult for over ten years (he's been in since 1997, me since 2006 but my site went live in 2009). We have a very active youtube following as well if you search my name or ourbellalife - point being.. DO BOTH. YT is crazy, CRAZY strict about what you can do, what you can say/show off and you can't link to. Like, way stricter than instagram. dm me - happy to help

brett 3 months ago

The average RPM in 2018 was $0.64 so you were way above it. Sure, switch to YouTube, their RPM is about $1. Different types of companies willing to advertise on non adult content

I agree I've found countless videos on other tube sites which have been on for weeks and months without pornhub doing anything about it and me having to take them down myself. Also no bonus payout that I can see. Not worth it.

At first, I was skeptical about letting people pay to download, especially when most of the payees are abandoned accounts or fake profiles? I use software to monitor piracy and haven't had an issue like some of my friends. PH caught some pirating on xvi***s so thankful it works.

ScarlettKnightley 3 months ago

The Pornhub model staff has been extra good to me with removing my content from other websites. Idk about automatic... but whenever I contacted them about a video popping up somewhere, they were swift and professional.

Salixxx Katz 3 months ago

milfingrid 3 months ago

Be careful about signing away your rights people. If PH was to go belly-up for some reason (Heaven forbid) you may have trouble getting your intellectual property back. PH is potentially 1 celebrity lawsuit away from the event horizon, so to speak. Too big to fail? Remember Hulk Hogan vs Gawker? I rest my case.

NattyCat 3 months ago

We do not take your rights - you retain your video rights. What you agree to is that we will issue DMCA take downs on YOUR behalf - aka we will send legal notices to people saying we REPRESENT you but do not OWN your rights.

New to all this, I thought hey exclusive sounds good right? After reading some comments here I did a super quick google search to realize my videos are on countless random websites.... so I call BS.

brett 3 months ago

I did a search for your content and only see embed sites send traffic to your videos here. If you have any examples please send them to models@pornhub.com so we can remove them.

Lonna87 3 months ago

I have mine set to exclusive. I've noticed a change in my earnings and everyone is amazingly fast about getting my content taken down from other sites. Support is always fast and everyone is so sweet and patient. Thank you Pornhub for continuing to be awesome and for always changing and helping us!

Lonna87 3 months ago

it's not as bad as everyone is thinking. There's so many catfish accounts going on and people using others content to make money. I'm glad I signed up when I first started.

SexWithMilfStella 3 months ago

Overall this seems like a good thing which is why we chose it. But if we stop being exclusive at some point in the future it sounds like all old videos we have still are considered exclusive forever and can't be posted on free sites even when exclusivity ends. Correct?

Thank you for clarifying that @NattyCat (love that you actually reply to people here!) Going exclusive really is the way to go for us then.

Well, it is obvious that you put the sword and the wall instead of helping you. The "extra payment" is a mockery and they know it, we all know it but on the other hand we need that "copyright protection" ... we will see that this costs us in the future.


It is a pleasure to now be an exclusive Pornhub artist. I am very happy with the decision I made. Thanks Pornhub, you are my family now.

Bonjour, en ce qui me concerne, j'ai pu constater que l'une de mes vidéos exclusive a été téléchargé frauduleusement via pornhub et ensuite elle a été publiéillégalement sur deux sites de rencontre (dans la section vidéos publiques et gratuites). J'ai réussi à faire supprimer la vidéo en prouvant qu'elle m'appartenait, seulement, le faux profil a réitérer, avez-vous d'autres moyens de pressions pour nous aider dans ce type de cas ? En vous remerciant.

Purple Vayda 3 months ago

We are giving it a go as we start, but doubt we will stay exclusive with PH. As we have plans to roll our own website out, the RPM seem minimal and the exclusive tag seems like a gimmick. But will continue for the "extra 5%" since we have nothing better to do at the moment.

NattyCat 3 months ago

Being exclusive doesn't block you from having your own site, it just protects your content by become digitally fingerprinted and we monitor free tube sites in case someone ripped it and placed it there.

CreamyCreationz 3 months ago

Can someone give an example of a “free tube site.” Are sites like porn hub considered a free tube site? People can watch videos for free, but we get paid based on views.? They have to be on sites that require you to pay to watch anything? Please explain...

NattyCat 3 months ago

a free tube site is a site that is like Pornhub or Youtube in that users can upload content on it.
