BIPOC= Black, Indigenous People Of Color .. You would think the PORN based group would of found a way to include the minority majority in it’s fancy little acronym, but that would require too much effort..At the end of the day, this group was thrown together to take advantage of the racial trends vs creating real change.
Since the tragic death of George Floyd, you see d-list POC using it as a platform to further their OWN career.. Its sad really…When you get on your twitter and say give me money cuz im black and you owe me, it makes me wanna punch you in the face..
Believe it it or not, I used to hang out with Pimp C from time to time, all he ever did was complain about JIVE records…My response was always the same. you signed the contract, they don’t owe you shit. If you’re a black performer and you agree to a B/G rate of 800 bucks, no one owes you shit outside of the 800..You weren’t oppressed, you decided what your pussy was worth and showed up for work.
You think a Marcus London will get the same rate as a Xander Corvus? Or even my bitch Jesse Jones? How does race play into that? it doesn’t,. it’s popularity and work ethic. Those who put in the work, reap its rewards.
There are several African American porn girls who get more than their white counterparts, the fee has nothing to do with race and everything to do with popularity/work ethic.
If you as a performer don’t do your job, don’t expect to be payed like those that do..

The BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) Adult Industry Collective offers a unique insight into Black women’s erotic labor in porn with Dr. Mireille Miller-Young. The event is the second of BIPOC-AIC’s “Decolonize Porn” educational series. The series centers Black & Brown sex workers, content creators, and academics offering radical topics with the mission of dismantling harmful approaches to sex & sex workers based on learned biases in porn. This donation-based event benefits the BIPOC-AIC Mutual Aid Fund and Operational Costs. The BIPOC-AIC honors, celebrates, and empowers Black, Brown, Indigenous, and non-white People of Color working in NSFW Adult media to achieve financial liberation through political education, skillshare, and transformational justice.
For the last 50 years, Black women have graced the covers of adult magazines and movies, garnering household name status yet never quite earning the same pay nor respect of the industry, which made them famous. Much like their mainstream Hollywood counterparts, many of these women have played domestic servants, unsophisticated characters or, only supporting roles. Many of these women left the industry with little fan-fare, disappearing into infamy. The most famous amongst them are still the subject of inquiry by fans who adored them. Sex Scholar and Historian, Dr. Mireille Miller-Young, has dedicated her career to research and chronicle these pioneers of the blue screen. Dr. Miller-Young’s first book, “A Taste for Brown Sugar: The History of Black Women in Porn,” is a necessary account of Black women whose struggles for equity, financial liberation, and sexual freedom still impacts the industry today.
“After the X-Biz Town Hall, it became apparent that many younger performers are not aware of the long history of Black performers, directors, producers, and company owners that came before them. To prevent erasure of Black people in the industry, we decided to offer insight into this important archive through one of our first educational events,” says Sinnamon Love, founder of BIPOC-AIC. “Before we can ask people to stop working for companies who produce racist content, we have to put money in folks’ pockets. People need to feed their families and keep a roof over their heads.”
The BIPOC-AIC intends to do precisely that through a series of initiatives to help marginalized performers in need through mediation services with licensed clinicians, weekly virtual wellness classes with sex-positive, sex-worker friendly coaches, and virtual Peer-to-Peer skillshare workshops. The BIPOC-AIC’s Mutual Aid Fund aims to provide monthly grants to BIPOC community members impacted by COVID-19 or any reason. Applications open August 1 with the first grants beginning September 1.
