I want to provide a space for you to see what I’ve been able to gather with regards to what the big adult service providers plan to do regarding the passing of the FOSTA/SESTA legislation. I understand everyone being in a bit of panic mode considering many online and offline adult providers have been closing at lightning speed in repsonse to this bill. (For a full up-to-date list of the FOSTA/SESTA Fallout CLICK HERE)
I am still waiting to hear from the other companies.
Can I just say, that iWantClips is the only site that had a prepared statement for their clients and providers up within a week of the vote on the bill. THIS IS HOW YOU DO BUSINESS. Shame on many of these providers.
From the IWC website Mar 29/18 . “… It has been a stressful time as of late for the community in light of FOSTA-SESTA, as well as our recent maintenance periods on iWantClips this past week. We want to assure you that iWantClips will always be a safe, optimal, and supportive platform for you to market your creative works. Your success is our top priority.
As we’ve seen on popular forums, and social media, there has been some suspicion that recent legislation has been affecting site performance. We assure you that they are not linked in any manner. Regarding the advent of FOSTA-SESTA, our leadership and legal counsel have placed us in prime position to be protected from any negative impacts. You can move forward with ease into the future on all iWantEmpire platforms…”

“If any changes were to happen to our terms of service and use or rules, we will advise studios via a broadcast announcement.”
“Regarding the new FOSTA-SESTA bill, we are absolutely against human trafficking and any sexual activities involving minors. Those are crimes and individuals committing those acts should be judged as dangerous criminals. However, the bill is too broad, and it targets many platforms and communication tools that adult performers rely on for both safety and creative promotion.
On ManyVids, adult content creators—MV Stars—create titillating digital images and games to entertain their fans. We are an online adult community. All the interactions (and earnings) are on-platform. As such, the repercussions of the new regulations are very minimal.
The FOSTA-SESTA bill will definitely impact the creative strategies and fan outreach of some of our content creators (for example: Dinner Date raffles or Meet-a-Fan contests), but we believe in their resilience. They will adjust and offer other creative, legal ways to stay in touch and get closer to their loyal fans.”
“Business as usual at present. We are currently selling Advertising spots. We’re continually taking advice & monitoring the situation. Back ups are in place but not active which mostly involve moving away from anything USA controlled (Email, domain extensions etc) Any enforced changes will always be announced on our web site first where possible.

Reaction to First Choice Pay/Payoneer/Paxum
“The recent changes influenced the industry a lot, and of corse we also had to make adjustments on our side, a we were also working with FCP.
However, we had and have other alternatives for transferring earnings. We are in touch with all our sellers who were using FCP as a pyout method and figuring out the best options ofor each of them.
Currently we are also looking into other alternatives to increate our potential pay out options. We will add these to the already available payout options we have shortly.
Here are the current main payout options:
Free wire transfers over $100 in earnings, twice a month. You’d receive your earnings in your local currency directly at a great rate – about 1% fee instead of the 3% typical fee from banks.
Daily payouts with BoleynModels at a 6% cost.”
