True Confessions of the Amateur Porn Community (What It’s Really Like)

Amateur Porn has been a part of our lives since the advent of the Polaroid camera, but with the advent of digital photography and all the wonders of the internet, the evolution of the amateur porn community one of the most profitable and long lasting genres of all pornography. Amateur pornography is a term that we’re all familiar with, in ways, the majority of us have probably even contributed to the amateur porn community, even if we didn’t really mean to.

What exactly is amateur porn?
Amateur porn is essentially a genre of pornography, either video or photographic, in which the models or actors aren’t paid for what they do, or at least not in the traditional sense.

Models or actors can submit their work to an amateur porn community and possibly receive a commision for their posting, or if they’re using a youtube channel type platform, then they can generate revenue through ads or views, or building a large enough audience that merchandise or paid appearances may be able to turn a bit of filthy profit.

That being said, the amateur porn community is a multimillion dollar business, and creating a successful channel is almost as difficult as creating a successful blog. You have to have near constant, quality content that viewers actually want to see. Even then, rising to top top of these flesh infested waters can be more difficult than many people think.

So how did amateur porn communities come about?
An amateur porn community is generally a website or forum that allows viewers, models, and actors, to watch content and upload their own work. While amateur porn had some pretty humble beginnings, from polaroids and vhs tapes that basically had to be handed out at random. It was difficult to mass produce amateur porn in any other fashion because with high quality films, you had to bring them in to get developed which was expensive and often times content would get rejected from processing or get reported for violating obscenity laws.

If you got an audience for your homemade videos of love, distribution and marketing were dicey and expensive processes. In came the 90’s where digital equipment became more fashionable and affordable. No longer did you have to submit your film for processing and you could upload it almost instantly. Early social networking sites, like AOL and MySpace, were the choice platforms of distribution at the time.

Since then, thousand of free porn sites have landslides into the market. Advances in the affordability and quality of digital recording devices has ensure that more and more people have access to equipment that is capable of producing decent product. This created a need for collation and collection, and thusly, the amateur porn community was born.
