PornHub Premium Is Free on Valentine’s Day

It’s Valentine’s Day today and, as has become tradition, PornHub is celebrating by giving everyone that’s stuck at home without a date free access to premium content for 24 hours.

That means users will have access to a huge catalogue of full-length, high quality videos, which are usually reserved for paying customers.

If you’re one of those people with no plans on Valentine’s Day (there’s absolutely no shame in that), you’re not alone, as the streaming giant showed that traffic to PornHub Premium increased by 308 percent on February 14th last year compared to the regular monthly average.

Around 3.5 million people took advantage of the free premium content in 2017 and PornHub is expecting a lot more people this year.

Meet Fashion’s First Computer-Generated Influencer

Miquela Sousa is an influencer like any other, except for one big difference – she’s a virtual avatar that exists only online. She rocks Supreme, Prada and Chanel, and attends exclusive events with other influencers. But she’s isn’t real in the traditional sense of the word.

She’s 19, half Brazilian, half Spanish and based in Los Angeles. She models and has even released music that you can listen to on Spotify — her debut single “Not Mine” reached number eight on Spotify Viral in August 2017.

Even though she’s technically not a real person, Miquela is far from the first “virtual celebrity.” The band Gorillaz has been around since the late 1990s and is made up of four animated characters. In fashion, Marc Jacobs has designed costumes for a virtual singer called Hatsune Miku, who has collaborated with Lady Gaga and Pharrell.

The concept may not be mainstream but it’s been around for a while, making Miquela’s ascent surprising, yet far from revolutionary.

Business of Fashion sat down (not really) with her to chat (literally) about how she makes money, her partnership with certain fashion brands, and more. Check out the best bits below.

On making money

I’ve never been paid to wear pieces but I’m starting to get sent free stuff from brands. I try to support and tag brands that I love, especially from young designers who are trying to break through.

Spotify and iTunes are one [revenue] stream and I’ll be doing a lot more modelling work. I probably shouldn’t name them but some of the biggest agencies in the world have reached out. I’ve only really partnered with brands to create, so I think monetizing would be a great next step. Making things is time consuming and being rewarded for my creativity with money would be amazing.

On her inspirations

Since moving to LA I’ve spent a lot of time in galleries and museums so contemporary artists like Carly Mark, Martine Syms and Kerry James Marshall inspire me. In fashion, I look to Isamaya Ffrench, Raf Simons, Sies Marjan and Alexandre Vauthier. I also love Reese Blutstein.

“Wonder Woman 2” to use Anti-sexual harassment guidelines

Wonder Woman 2 will be the first film to utilize the Producers Guild of America’s anti-sexual harassment guidelines

 response to the overwhelming number of Hollywood encounters that have recently been made public. These instructions have been put into place to better help all those working on a given picture recognize and combat sexual harassment.

“Producers possess authority both on and off the set, and can provide key leadership in creating and sustaining work environments that are built on mutual respect,” PGA presidents Gary Lucchesi and Lori McCreary said in a statement.

For starters, the PGA’s guidelines suggest that each production adheres to federal and state laws, while allowing for numerous reporting procedures and providing all team members with in-person anti-sexual harassment training. In addition, there are protocols for victims, witnesses, and producers.

Again, Wonder Woman 2 is now the first film to adopt the PGA’s anti-sexual harassment regulations, as you can visit The Verge for more on the story.
