LOS ANGELES — Sex Work CEO has released a report studying the adult creator community.
The company surveyed hundreds of performers for its "2022 State of the Creator" report, breaking down creator incomes, age distribution, platform adoption and strategies used to build their businesses.
Among the findings of the survey, nearly 7% make over $250,000 per year and 55% exclusively shoot solo content.
The survey also found that financial success correlates most heavily with time in the industry.
"We’re the most talked about and least understood industry in the world," said Sex Work CEO founder MelRose Michaels. "So much of the time we’re left guessing about how much other people make, how they find fans, and what type of content sells. The data shows what our community looked like on a macro level so that we can separate fact from rumor and build successful businesses."
Michaels described the study as empowering for creators.
"Right now, we’re at the mercy of platforms when it comes to data," she said. "They show us only what they want us to see, and usually it’s a very incomplete picture in terms of analytics. Even if they shared everything they have, they still only have information on their own platform. I put the power back in the hands of creators. I’m recruiting thousands of creators to get involved and help take back control of our businesses."
