Pornhub documentary is coming to Netflix next month

Pornhub documentary is coming to Netflix next month

It is set to explore the controversial website's history.

When it comes to the wonderful world of adult entertainment, few sites are better known than Pornhub.

The adult video platform has had far from a smooth ride over the years, and all is set to be revealed about its history in new Netflix documentary Money Shot: The Pornhub Story.

Launched in 2007, Pornhub facilitated the rise of user-generated adult content, which has now exploded into the mainstream on other newer platforms like OnlyFans.

The documentary, from Alex Gibney's Jigsaw Productions, is set to explore the recent backlash too.

This includes accusations that, in the process of revolutionising the distribution of porn, the website gave a platform to 'non-consensual material and trafficking'.

The film's Netflix synopsis added: "As anti-trafficking organisations seek justice for victims, can the online giant protect those from whom they profit, or is this a new wave of censorship for adult performers making consensual porn?"

Last year, Visa and Mastercard stopped TrafficJunky from selling their ads on Pornhub.

The decision to cut ties with the company came after a lawsuit claimed that the website's parent company MindGeek conspired to distribute child pornography.

Reacting to these allegations, MindGeek said they have no merit and that the platform has 'instituted the most comprehensive safeguards in user-generated platform history.'

If nothing else, the documentary has a great name.

Suzanne Hillinger, the director and producer of the documentary, said: "This documentary requires us to grapple with what sexuality and consent means when billion-dollar internet platforms thrive on user-generated content.

"Who has, and who should have, the power in these environments?

"Our hope is that this film generates important conversations about sex and consent, both on the internet and out in the world."

The documentary, which is 93 minutes long, will be available to stream on Netflix from 15 March.

News of its release come after the tragic story of Pornhub star Jenni Lee recently resurfaced.

Despite the fact the former adult actress remains a popular face on the platform, according to the last known reports of her whereabouts, she's now homeless and living as one of Las Vegas's mole people.

Lee remains popular on Pornhub.

A Dutch TV crew made the shocking discovery when filming in the tunnels.

Lee, whose real name is Stephanie Sadorra, told them: "I used to be so hot. But I'm happy, I've got everything I need.

"It's not as difficult as you might think, everybody is really respectful.

"Everybody's good to each other, which I don’t think you find much [above ground]. People are more accepting here."
