ManyVids understands that being a part of the sex industry is a unique experience that not many people outside of the community are able to understand. This disconnect becomes especially obvious when we are suffering and need to reach out for emotional support. We often find there is no one who understands what we’re going through, who can listen without judgment or who is able to offer advice that is useful to our distinct situation.
We want to change this. In the first quarter of 2018, ManyVids will launch an in-house hotline dedicated to supporting content creators in the sex industry. It will be a FREE, confidential and easily accessible resource that MV Stars can reach out to when they need to talk about emotional or psychological issues they are dealing with or need help finding resources. It’s for anyone who feels they’re not able to talk about life in the sex industry to anyone else. To make sure every MV Star is as comfortable as possible as they address personal issues, an anonymous option will be available to protect the content creators’ identity.
The MV Hotline will be staffed by attentive, respectful and non-judgmental agents who will be available 8 hours a day during the business week. We will also make sure to have email services available for those who need support outside of those hours. We will actively be working on providing this FREE service to all our MV Stars 24 hours a day, 7 days a week if the demand is there for it.
As we continue to build this resource, we encourage those who need to talk, ask advice or receive emotional support to call the Sex Workers Outreach Project (SWOP-USA) community support line at (877) 776-2004 (select 1). Find the terms applicable to the MV Hotline here.
You are not alone. What you feel, think and deal with in life is valid. You deserve to have someone listen to you. We want to help and are extremely proud to take on this type of initiative.
Stay tuned for more details in the next few months as we will be moving on this as fast as we can.
