Podcast 64: AVN Stars, Awards and Camming News
Welcome back to the Camland Podcast. This month, we’re transitioning into a new setup. We’ll be going live twice monthly (2nd and last Thursday of the month) and Aerie or Nate will just be doing the recaps on the off weeks. This way we’re able to make sure the episodes drop on Thursday and add a level of organization. Now, the days when new episodes will be posted are going to be much more predictable.
What We Cover:
AVN Stars: New Adult Fanclub Platform – AVN is the big news today. The media outlet has announced MV Stars, a new fanclub platform. It’s been alleged that AVN Stars is actually more of an OnlyFans whitelabel than anything else, although there are some noticeable differences. It’s obviously in an early-state beta, as AVN themselves are completely quiet about the project and the FAQ section is currently unavailable. Despite that, the platform is live and there are performers selling on it. We’ve reached out to AVN for more information and will update whenever it’s available.
