Another few weeks of lockdown but things seem to be starting to ease. The recent announcement by the government is giving a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel and with the recommendations coming from UKAP (UK Adult Producers), it looks like we will be shooting solo content very soon.
As I mentioned in previous blog posts, this time has given us the opportunity to launch new services we’ve had on the burner for a while and with the current extension its now given us the time to launch our own adult websites.
For anyone that’s started an adult website, they’ll know it takes time, effort, money and content for a successful launch. Whilst most of these have not been the issue, dedicating enough time to create what we really wanted has been. Even choosing whether we self host and take our own credit card payments or use established platforms that handle all that for us has been a sticking point.
After numerous emails and phone calls with content platforms, and established producer friends, we were offered a special deal that would give us the time to create content without having to spend too much time on the daily running of the sites. We also negotiated a percentage rate that we were extremely happy with and would enable us to let each website stand alone.
The first two sites will be launched over the next few weeks with a further three before the end of the summer depending on how quickly we can collate the content needed. This will give us enough content to see if the websites are a viable option for us.
To enable us to do this we are making a few changes to our work practices and will now be offering models a content share option to work with us on our new brands. If you’d like to work with us please contact us via the contact form or our Twitter page @skullfuka .
We’re still locked down here at Skullfuka towers but have taken this time to test the waters on a part of the business we were looking to launch next year. The adult industry has always been a trailblazer in marketing and advertising since the birth of the internet, but us Brits seem to lack finesse compared to our American counterparts.
I talk to lots of successful British models and always like to ask where the majority of their customers come from, the usual answer will almost always be the UK. Now this can come down to many factors including time zones for cam girls, the platforms they use to sell their content or that they’re using “Comic Sans” font over a badly lit selfie and customers have seen that same shit for the past 15 years.
So as an experiment we’ve dusted off Photoshop, put on our branding and marketing hats and made some Twitter headers and flyers for some of our regular models. The feedback we’ve had so far is that it seems to be making an impact. The models have said that engagement is up and that they’re attracting followers from further a field including Europe and America.
Yes, the British adult entertainment business is miniscule compared to America’s multibillion dollar porn economy but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t at least try to make an impact and get some of that income flowing this side of the pond.
If you’d like to discuss your branding and marketing requirements with us please get in touch via our contact page, alternatively we will be adding another page to the Skullfuka website to offer this service over the next few days.
But please, stop using Comic Sans!
We have now been in lockdown for three weeks due to the current global health crisis. Working in adult entertainment does give you a heightened awareness on how your personal health can impact on others you work closely with. As an industry we’re used to self governing ourselves, ensuring the models we work with have a clean up to date, sexual health certificates to keep our industry safe. Its great to see the majority of adult industry are sticking to the governments advice and self isolating to ensure they do their part on limiting the spread of the virus.
We know how resilient the adult entertainment sector is and its great to see how models and performers have adapted to ensure their businesses still continue to provide them with an income, either through webcamming or making self shot clips.
This situation has given the skullfuka team an opportunity to catch up on a backlog of content that we’ve shot over the past few months to ensure the models we work with regularly still have enough content to keep going. We’ve also invested in some new cutting edge camera equipment to give us more options to make creative clips once we’re allowed back out to play.
Keep safe everyone and please continue to support the British adult entertainment business by paying for your porn.
After years of producing content for other people, I have decided to star creating clips and scenes that will be available on our new Manyvids/Clips4Sale/Onlyfans sites. I will start to populate these platforms over the next few weeks and I hope you enjoy the FILTH we have lined up for you 😉
Today I got to work with the amazing adult industry legend Misty Mckaine. Misty has been in the business for 30 years and is an AVN winner and these really showed on set. The chemistry between Misty and Mia was electric and really shows in the content. Full fetish and BDSM scenes as well as some really naughty girl/girls scenes. You need to check these two out!
One of the questions I get asked all the time when I tell people I work in adult entertainment is “What’s it like behind the scenes on a porn set?”. I think for most people they think its a crazy party with everyone indulging in all sorts of debauchery. Unfortunately for those individuals your image will be shattered as its very much the opposite. Respectful, professional and a lot of hard work is what goes into making good quality adult entertainment. Hopefully this blog will show you what really happens and will give you a sneak peak behind the lace curtain!
