Apparently “Kickstarter but for porn” is the new “Netflix for [insert noun here].” Another new crowd-funded website aimed at libidinous content creators looking to craft their own DIY porn launched today. It’s called Fan Fund XXX (NSFW if the XXX didn’t alert you) and it only has three projects listed so far, including a porn parody of the movie Saw.

Aimed at creating a disruptive mess of the adult film industry, Fan Fund XXX hopes to help commoners create adult films without enlisting studio support. The site’s FAQs said it’s very “flexible” in terms of what users can utilize the site for (“If talent needs travel expenses to appear at conventions” is one example), as long as there’s nothing illegal.

In an email to Salon, CEO Peter Housley said the creation of Fan Fund XXX believes his crowdfunding is in response to how difficult it is to get X-rated projects produced:

“Crowd funding in any form, mainstream or adult, allows creativity and ingenuity to flow — it offers a place where fans of a concept or idea can choose to make it a reality [rather] than leaving decisions to starched white shirts pushing pencils and tapping calculators scrutinizing a pro-forma built by some accountant.”

But the “Kickstarter for porn” rubric is close to hitting its, well, climax. There are other similar sites out there including Offbeatr and GoGoFantasy.

Maybe the Internet hasn’t reached peak porn yet.
