Porn and the Pandemic: From PornHub to OnlyFans, COVID-19 May Have Changed Sex Work Forever

So performers and fans flocked to new porn platforms — particularly OnlyFans, where amateurs and professionals alike earn subscription income by posting adult content. Meanwhile, job losses are sending more people into sex work to make ends meet. It adds up to a changed landscape for adult entertainment that may be long-lasting.
