Bellesa Introduces 'BIPOC Creators Program,' Dedicates $20K Monthly Budget

LOS ANGELES — Bellesa and its Bellesa Plus streaming service have announced the launch of its BIPOC Creators Program with a monthly budget of $20,000 to support and empower content creators of color.

"People, and women in particular, have been craving content to which we can relate: storylines that feel authentic, characters with which we can empathize, and most importantly, sex that looks and feels real," noted a company rep. "No fake orgasms, no male gaze, no problematic storylines. As women, we want to see ourselves portrayed as we really are — as subjects of pleasure, not objects of conquest. A large part of that — of seeing ourselves reflected in this content — relies upon seeing people who look like us on the screen." 

"The unfortunate reality is that much of the adult content shot by studios with performers of color, even in 2021, is fetishized and problematic," the rep added. "This is the outdated reality of the adult industry. But the content exists. And we want to highlight it. We want a lot more of it."

The BIPOC Creators Program will allow creators to "do as they choose" and the content will be co-owned by Bellesa.

"They can hire other performers, bring in camera people, hire lighting, that’s entirely up to them," the rep explained. "The goal of the BIPOC Creators Program is to empower creators of color to make the content they want to make, by equipping them with the resources needed to make it. We want to do this in a way that is most supportive to the creator, which is why this content will be co-owned by Bellesa and the creator themselves. Creators are welcome to also use this content on their personal platforms and monetize it however they’d like."

The over-arching goal is to bring more content that is "representative of what our Bellesa community looks like into the world. We want to support and highlight the work of the amazing BIPOC creators in this industry and promote real representation on Bellesa, without the fetishization that runs rampant in mainstream porn."

Bellesa and Bellesa Plus invite BIPOC performers who create "amazing, ethical content that prioritizes female pleasure" to apply at contact@bellesa.co.
