Well, it seems like the overlord payment processors are back again picking on their favorite target: the sex industry. You know, grown adults just trying to get off to their favorite fetishes.
I mean, you cannot even buy something online with your own money to do in the privacy of your own home. This is my American thinking of course.
Personally, I have never done a lot of intox content. Just not my thing. And where does the responsibility lie for this type of content?
Taken from an email sent by IWantClips:
Please be aware of the following changes regarding the “Encouraged Intox Fantasy” category and the “Aroma” keyword:
“Intox” content, in which the Artist encourages, implies (even indirectly), suggests, or assumes that viewers drink, take, inhale, sniff, or ingest any type of drug, substance, poppers, aroma, or alcohol is not allowed, even if it is stated to be within a “fantasy” context.
The word that gets me the most here is “assumes.” This put’s a lot of responsibility on me as an artist. I never assume you are doing anything (never admit this SEX WORKERS.) My work is for entertainment purposes only.
But these payment processors see it differently. For them, what you are paying for does not stop at fantasy. To them your fantasy play has real world consequences that they do not believe you are responsible enough to mitigate on your own.
Oh, where is this going? You work to earn your money and you cannot spend it on things YOU ENJOY for your own entertainment.
It seems it is getting worse and worse with these mainstream payment processors. Give any of these institutions an inch and they take a trip around the world. Open your eyes, wake up.
But, like everything in life, there are loopholes. There are other ways.
Oppression does not work as one thinks because you know… humans get creative. I will be offering alternative purchasing options for those that enjoy coerced intox content.
I am thinking along the lines of cryptocurrency and other alternative payment options.
I believe if you want to get fucked up in your own home, that is your business. But will you take that personal responsibility when it gets down to the nitty gritty?
Mastercard and Visa do not believe so (shit, your government because who do you think is over them? :p). So, like the responsible parents they are for the grown children of the world, they are taking it away from you.
But I’m your fun Auntie…
