(Los Angeles, CA) Award-winning all-American curvy beauty, Penthouse Pet, and activist Mary Moody has been entrenched in a campaign to raise awareness about credit card companies blocking Pornhub payments and putting sex workers at economic risk. Now, she’s featured in a new BBC News piece about what’s going on and how sex workers and civilians can get involved.

“Sex Workers Say ‘Defunding Pornhub’ Puts Their Livelihoods at Risk” by Thomas Fabbri is an informative piece for non-sex workers to understand how the loss of revenue affects sex workers and how they make a living. Despite Pornhub changing their policy and only allowing content verified users only, three major credit card companies are blocking payments to the adult giant. Many sex workers rely on the income they receive from tips, selling their content, fan clubs, and views on Pornhub. While views are still being paid by advertisers, without the ability to sell their content, get tips, and offer other services, sex workers are losing exponential amounts of money. Even the ones earning less than $2k a month can’t pay their bills and survive. Mary has asked sex workers to make videos to let Mastercard, Visa, and Discover hear their voices and understand the real issues.

In the piece, Mary along with Ginger Banks, Cara Vega, Valentina Nappi, and June Liu speak out about what’s really going on, including the difficulty of switching to new platforms, how sex workers had no time to prepare for the fallout, and are losing years of followers they’ve built. Another critical element these ladies bring to light is what this is all about—shutting down adult and not abuse, trafficking, and violence in a vapid campaign spearheaded by Exodus Cry.

“Pornhub is how many of our fans find us and is at the top of Google searches. It’s all about survival during the pandemic for many sex workers. I want to raise awareness of how it’s affecting us and hope that other mainstream publications, shows, and sites will also cover this. The world needs to know and stand up with us against this huge injustice. Our fans and other sex workers have been working hard to get the message out there to credit card companies, in the hope they will really think about what they’re doing, reverse their decision, and help get sex workers back on their feet,” says Mary Moody.
