BERLIN, GermanyIn spite of the current pandemic, German-based independent adult filmmakers have come together virtually (social distancing from their homes) to create a vignette adult film and fundraiser, Sex In Times Of Corona. Dubbed the “Corona Solidarity Film,” the project was completed with a combined budget of less than 60 (US$66), and produced by 16 filmmakers with mini-teams of sheltering cohabitants creating short sections while following local COVID-19 preventative laws. Viewers may receive a download of the film if they donate to BesD Berufsverband erotische und sexuelle Dienstleistungen e.V.Emergency Fund. The group has raised more than 5,500 (US$6,015) and plan to continue honoring donations at least until the end of May. Sex workers and adult businesses around the world are facing discrimination in government relief projects. Fortunately, our communities are as resourceful and creative as they are resilient against sexual persecution and censorship. Sex In Times Of Corona is intended to sweeten adult fans’ days in quarantine while filling the BesD Berufsverband erotische und sexuelle Dienstleistungen e.V.Emergency Fund for sex workers. We provide the film; you provide the donation! Here’s how to do it: 1. Donate here. 2. Send a screenshot of the donation to CoronaSolidarityFilm@gmail.com 3. Get a download link to the film! Donating more than 50 (US$55) will also get explicit long versions of some of the scenes and behind-the-scenes material! Contributors include Candy Flip, Theo Meow, Finn Peaks, Jo Pollux, Katybit (Cum Different), Doxytocine, spir@lena, Apollo, Johnny Jane, Frau Dark, Dolores Maria, Toni Karat, Harvey Rabbit, Manon Praline, Hyenaz, and more. Many of these independent performer/producer artists have films available on PinkLabel.TV. The platform regularly blogs about porn crowdfunding and encourages donations for this “porn solidarity” project.
