Hi everyone! This is just a short post to let you know I’ve got good news and bad news. The bad news is that most of my last shoot, Sub Rikochan, with my friend Yuka Ozaki didn’t come out because of a problem with my old camcorder. I’m so sad, both because I think it was one of my best shoots yet and because When Riko Met Yuka and Yuka Spanks Riko are two of my most popular videos ever. Furthermore, my DSLR is 6 years old now, it’s also getting wonky, and I’ve really outgrown it, so about the only thing I have left to make porn with is my iPhone!
The good news is that I’ve got a little Sub Rikochan video, which I will post to my studio soon, and I’ve got some great pictures, including the ones in this post and more to come. Even better, I’m getting a new camera, a full-frame mirror less camera that will also shoot really good video. Yay! But it’s kind of a leap of faith that I’ll be able to pay for it with my existing sales; I don’t really make money with my Rikochan videos, because I put it all back into toys and props and hiring people and a little bit to help pay for training at the gym so I can look better in shoots, too.
Respect for Sex Workers
I got into making porn because I wanted to make clips and photos of people who looked and thought like me–whether it’s sub Rikochan or female bodybuilder Rikochan–and the easiest and best way to do that seemed to be to just make clips and pics of me. I’m lucky enough that I don’t rely on it for my living, although I totally don’t judge anyone who does rely on porn–or any other kind of sex work–for their living. I say I’m lucky only because I don’t even people whose income is unpredictable. Actually, I am quite jealous of people whose careers are making erotic art and doing sex work, in that those are both lives that are very interesting to me, even if they are lives that I know are not easy to live in our culture. I am incredibly fortunate and privileged in my life, but even so there are things that I envy in other people’s lives…
Investing in Porn
That’s all a very long way to get to the point that I don’t mind not having anything left over from porn, because my whole idea was to put everything I could into it, not so much to profit from it. But I promised myself I wouldn’t actually lose money on the deal. And I’ve actually been lucky enough to be able to bootstrap all my other porn expenses. Almost everything I’ve bought has been paid for with money already earned. This camera is going to be my first really big investment in Rikochanpornstar.com in a long time, maybe ever.
I’d Like Your Help
So, I’m going to ask for a little help. I’ll be setting up a GoFundMe that will deliver custom videos and pictures in exchange for donations, and maybe also a Patreon, too. I’m not asking for something for nothing, however–I’ll be delivering pictures and videos in exchange for your investment in me, and I’ll be able to do more and better pictures here on my blog, and I’ll also be able to put up more and better video in my store, too. As always, every bit of money that I get from either of these projects will go back 100 percent to you guys, in the form of pictures, posts, videos, porn and muscle.
Where to Donate
GoFundMe shut me down immediately! But my Patreon is now up! Please stop by and take a look, let me know what you think? I would love pledges most of all, but I’d also really LOVE some feedback. I’ll post what little sub Rikochan video there is from the shoot soon, too. In the meanwhile, of course, you can always check out my shop!
