Now These Will Be Some Sick Beat(Offs) — Porn Website Starting Own Record Label
When an artist or brand conquers one aspect of entertainment it’s only natural for them to dip their feet into the other pools of possible cash flows.
Pornhub rules the free porn market. Now it wants to get into the music business.
“We’ve always seen a strong music presence from the beginning of Pornhub,” says company head of PR and marketing Matt Blake. “Artists upload their own stuff, like uncensored tracks and R-rated versions of songs. Some people come in and upload exclusive videos, so it creates a buzz for them.”
Blake has a point. What’s a good porn movie without an awesome soundtrack?
Pornhub is also holding a contest in search of the next big music star. But they’re not just looking for porn or sex-focused music (throws down notepad full of songs about dildos), Pornhub wants mainstream music that will appeal to a wide audience of mature listeners.

The winner of the contest will receive $5,000 towards a music video and be featured on Pornhub.tv. The website is guaranteeing the artist a guaranteed 500,000 views since the website itself welcomes over 40 million unique visitors a day. I guess after you’re done checking out all those “mom and son” videos, click over to the music section of Pornhub to enjoy an audible screwing of a different kind.
