Today, countless women and girls are performing in the adult industry. Most of them work as full time adult actors and actresses and some of them also work as a cam model as an extra income.
One of the best things about being a cam model is that the individual can earn whenever they have spare time. However, not all cam models manage to earn well and get work in the adult industry.
Such girls and ladies tend to make money by selling their adult services such as sexting, phone sex, selling nudes, etc.
Selling sex tapes is one of the prominent adult services through which they can earn easily. They can make one video with a solo performance or they can also work with their different partners.
Now, the same video can be sold to numerous individuals for making lots of money.
These models can also gain admirers and fans through social media sites, cam sites, porn websites, etc. Some fans make special video requests to the models and they are willing to spend an appreciable amount of money if the model obliges to their request.
The model can also charge more if the fan asks something which she is not comfortable in performing. For example, if the fan requests the model to perform something in the BDSM niche with multiple partners and the model has never done it before then she can charge a lot more than she usually does.
These were the ways by which a model can make money by selling sex tapes. Now, lets see how to sell a sex tape. To sell your sex tape, all you need to do is follow this guide. I have covered all the steps that you need to follow in order to sell your sex tape online.
Many of our readers have sent us thankyou emails for giving this detailed explanation, hope you will like it as well. Read this step by step guide on how to sell sex videos online and within no time you will be selling $100-$1000 worth of videos.
How much money can I make by selling my Sex Tapes?
Now there is no fixed answer for this. I get asked a lot about how much money can I make by selling sex tapes online.
But trust me if someone is giving you an absolute figure then it might be possible that they are lying. Why? It is as because it depends on so many factors.
An average clip price is anywhere between $5-50. Let's say you are selling your clip for $25, so all you would need is 40 customers to make your $1000.
- Experience: Experienced models have many loyal followers and therefore, they would definitely earn way more than an amateur model.
- The price per clip you set: Now, if you will set the price of your clips at an exorbitant value and you lack a loyal fan base then no one would buy your clips. Therefore, you must do some research on the rates at which successful and amateur adult models sell their adult tapes. By doing so, you will get an idea about the price that can be set for your videos.
- Uploading frequency: The more videos or sex tapes you will make and upload, the more money you will be making. For this, you can either make videos belonging to one specific niche (recommended for newbie and beginners) or explore multiple categories to reach an even bigger audience.
- Point of sales: Limiting yourself to just one platform for selling your sex tapes and porn videos would be a wrong strategy. You must make accounts on various networks in order to earn more from your sex videos and sex tapes so that you can reach an even bigger audience and make more money by selling videos. Therefore, ensure that you sign up on all the networks that I am going to recommend later in this article.
Things that you’ll need to Get Started
Are you in need of money and are exploring ways to sell your sex tape online or are you an amateur adult video producer who is producing homemade porn and want to sell it online for some quick money?
The traditional way is to find an agent or middlemen who are going to assist you in selling the sex videos. However, this route has lost its charm now.
There are many networks where you can sign up and easily sell sex tapes. Here are the basic requirements that must be kept in mind for selling sex videos:
- A legal age: You need to be atleast 18 years old (in the US) to sell your sex tapes online. Also, any person who is in the video needs to be more than 18 years old. Irrespective of whether you are selling it by yourself or through a network, you need to submit your ID proofs which would confirm your legal age.
- Technical requirements: The camera of your smartphone would be enough if you are planning to make homemade clips. However, you would require a DSLR camera if you want to shoot the videos professionally.
- A computer or laptop: will be required to upload the videos that you will be making. The lighting system should also be good enough to capture good quality videos. Other accessories such as a tripod stand, video editor, etc. can also be used as and when required.
- A powerful internet connection: The videos are usually very large in size, Therefore, you will be needing a high-speed internet connection that would be able to do that in real quick time. A stable or moderately fast internet connection will also do if you are uploading short length or low resolution videos.
- Consenting partner: If you are performing with a partner in a video then you would require a person who feels comfortable in making sex videos with you. The person could be your husband, boyfriend, friend, or any professional adult model. However, be careful before you choose a partner as his working schedule should match with yours.
- Sexy outfits and props: Picking good costumes is essential as it will improve the overall impact and presentation of your videos. You will also require some props like sex toys, BDSM gear (for sex tapes of BDSM niche), etc. to make your vidoes even more interesting.
How to make Sex Tapes that sell faster?

Firstly, you need to find the niches that you excel in or are comfortable in performing. For example, if you are an expert in role play videos then you must focus on it. You can also develop an interest for a particular niche by researching even more about it.

Once you find a niche or a couple of niches, you can master it by making some trial videos. You would require some time to gain confidence and for performing without any hesitations in front of a camera.
If you are camera conscious, then you must start with making videos with your boyfriend or husband as you will feel more comfortable with them. Plan a scene perfectly from start to end and rehearse it with your partner to get the right shots. After that, you can add all of them with the help of a video editor.

Upload only HD videos
Fans do not compromise on quality as they want full value for the money they spend. Therefore, you must always upload HD quality videos.

You will earn more only if your video is seen and uploaded by thousands of members. You can gain a wider audience for your content by promoting it on social media channels like Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, etc.

How to protect your content?
The most common problem faced by the majority models and content producers is the copying or piracy of content. Many scammers often copy your content from one website and republish them as their own on other sites to make money.
If you do not want to get scammed then you can take the following precautionary steps:
Upload your videos only on sites that adhere to strict DMCA rules and permit you to exercise your copyrights for punishing the culprits. You also need to check whether a site has uploaded a copyright notice on its portal.
- Always ensure that you watermark your photos and videos before uploading them.
- Verify whether the website uses a video encryption program to stop illegal downloads and piracy practices.
- You can send a DMCA notice to the publishers who sell and distribute your videos without your consent.
- If any of the above steps do not work then you can also seek the assistance of a lawyer and take an action against the concerned people.
Best Sites for selling Sex Tapes and selling Sex Videos online
Here is the list of absolute best websites where you can post your sex videos and make money .
