Debuting on March 15, this feature-length long documentary will include “interviews with performers, activists and past employees,” taking audiences behind the scenes to reveal the “successes and scandals of Pornhub.” Money Shot: The Pornhub Story comes via Alex Gibney’s Jigsaw Productions, with Nicki Carrico acting as the producer and Stacey Offman and Richard Perello executive producing the project.

Whatever you’re opinion on the enterprise, Pornhub’s influence cannot be denied. The website revolutionized the online adult entertainment scene, completely transforming how pornography is created, consumed and distributed. In recent years, however, the site has come under fire for exploitation and a string of safety concerns.

“This enabled erotic content creators to reach a massive audience while the company made billions of dollars, but it also became embroiled in allegations including non-consensual material and trafficking on the site,” the synopsis read. “As anti-trafficking organisations seek justice for victims, can the online giant protect those from whom they profit, or is this a new wave of censorship for adult performers making consensual porn?”

The upcoming documentary will alsoshed more light on the accusations that Pornhub faced surrounding distributing child pornography and nonconsensual sex videos, which later led to Visa and Mastercard cutting all ties with TrafficJunky from selling their ads on Pornhub. In response to these allegations, MindGeek (the parent company of PornHub) stated they have no credibility and that the platform has ‘instituted the most comprehensive safeguards in user-generated platform history.’

Money Shot producer Suzanne Hillinger says with this documentary film they hope to give audiences a glance at how billion-dollar internet platforms work. “This documentary requires us to grapple with what sexuality and consent means when billion-dollar internet platforms thrive on user-generated content,” said Hillinger in a statement provided by Netflix. “Who has, and who should have, the power in these environments? Our hope is that this film generates important conversations about sex and consent, both on the internet and out in the world.”

From the looks of it, Netflix’s upcoming documentary film will mainly centre around all the controversies and allegations Pornhub has faced and unravel the dark and often ignored side of the porn industry to show what really goes on behind all the shiny lights and cameras.
