LOS ANGELES — A new website, (AFW), that pays kink enthusiasts for their homemade videos has launched.

The site boasts more than 200 categories where amateurs can share their personal explorations and kinky adventures with other like-minded fetish fans. The typical sections include BDSM, smoking, spanking, and foot fetish, along with unique categories like blood play, branding, erotic horror, and Wartenberg pinwheels.

“At Amateur Fetish World, you can become an instant fetish performer. Amateur Fetish World is the web’s first site which pays amateur fetish fans for their home made videos," spokesperson Alexis Texas said.

AFW maintained that it can make fetish fans stars through the professional editing of their homemade videos — usually a roadblock for amateurs seeking to producing their own content.

Videos must be a minimum of 10 minutes in length and no longer than 30 minutes. Multiple shorter videos in the same category may be used to meet the 10-minute minimum requirement.

AFW also noted that it offers a full range of products and services including the Red Room Members Area, which contains an interactive messaging section, an Amateurs-Only Cam Site as well as Amateur Fetish Videos available for immediate download.

"AFW was truly created as a venue strictly for amateur fetish fans to have fun and get paid for sharing their homemade fetish videos with other like-minded fetish fans,” webmaster Jim King said.

An introductory offer pays amateurs $1.50 per minute for the first 200 videos submitted and accepted. If a submitted video is the first one accepted in a “Coming Soon” category, performers could get an additional $50. After the AFW introductory offer expires, contributors will pay the standard rate of $1 per minute for every video accepted.

The company also announced the AFW Awards that will offer cash prizes for the Hottest Fetish Video, Most Outrageous Fetish Video, and Funniest Fetish Video with additional categories to be added based on member feedback.

The Awards will be presented monthly culminating in the annual AFW Awards voted on by Red Room Members. An $1100 adjustable Stockade and a $1000 Violet Magic Wand electrical stimulation system will be awarded to the Hottest Fetish Video of the year and the Most Outrageous Fetish Video of the year.
