What Is Vuli?

What Is Vuli?

Sex sells.

Right?

Except…it kind of doesn’t.

Despite the adult industry bringing in billions of revenue yearly, the people behind the scenes of porn creating the content rarely feel as if they are truly apart of such an otherwise apparently booming industry. Rates for performing and producing content are continuously slashed while simultaneously adult DVD sales continue to dwindle (frankly, I’m a little confused as to how they even sell at all anymore). The primary way any one successfully distributes porn anymore is via the internet, usually through “paywall” sites that implore the user to sign up for expensive monthly subscriptions just to get access to one single niche of content or a network of content. There is almost no site that allows the user to access a myriad of high quality, full length content from multiple different studios and performers, with ease, all in one place.

So we made one.

But wait, what am I even talking about? Porn is FREE! Hell, I’m sure many people aren’t aware you can actually BUY porn…because it’s so obviously free! Just load up your favorite “tube site” as the industry likes to refer to them, and boom, you have instant access to as much free porn as your bodily fluids can handle. For most, it’s plenty. Ten seconds of masturbatory relief and you’re back to Netflix or Instagram. But for some, there is something missing, and they can’t quite put their finger on what it might be.

For example, meet Chad. Chad likes porn. Chad is a little more selective about what he likes so he rarely clicks on any of the most popular or trending content on the home page. His favorite stars are Kissa Sins and Riley Reid. He likes intense encounters, thinks anal is weird, occasionally gets off on foot play but won’t admit it, has a thing for fishnets and sometimes tries to find content with a little bit more plot or substance to help get him excited. So Chad goes to a tube site and enters “riley reid hardcore fishnets”. A dozen scenes come up, and Chad feels elated. He uses that search term for a few weeks until he finds himself running out of content and the tube site isn’t showing him anything new or relevant to his search terms – it’s just the same results every time. So he starts looking for “kissa sins fishnets” and again is excited for the new crop of scenes he hasn’t seen before. Rinse and repeat. Eventually, Chad discovers it’s kind of difficult to find some porn to get off on that he hasn’t already seen, and searching for content becomes somewhat of a chore, taking more and more time to search for content he likes. Chad ends up developing an interesting system whereby he visits multiple tube sites, and searches for 10-20 scenes he thinks he might like and opens them all up in new tabs all at once. While searching for all this content, he clicks out of dozens of ads showcasing teen girls he’s not sure are actually legal as well as trying to avert his eyes from awkward, flashy penis enlargement banners. Then he gets down to it, and if a scene isn’t up to par he closes out and starts the next one. This is the porn reality of many men out there.

Now meet Raya. Raya is an artsy film major type with an eye for aesthetics and while she’s deeply sexual she isn’t really sure what she likes and doesn’t know what search terms to use. Whenever she does try to pull up porn on her web browser, she’s put off by the overt and abrasive design style most porn websites (even paywall ones) retain and often times the production quality of content she finds for free is a little low end for her tastes. She wants beautiful, glamourous and intense porn with an intriguing storyline that allows her to explore a multitude of sexual fantasies. There is lots of porn like this, but it’s often harder to find on free sites.

So here we have two very different people but whom clearly want more out of their porn viewing experiences.

At Vuli, we’ve created a platform for anyone who has ever felt even a little frustrated by experiences such as the above. We’ve created something that caters equally well to the tastes of men as well as women. We’ve spent an inordinate amount of time on design aesthetics and aimed to create a user experience that feels new and tantalizing as well as familiar and easy to use. Most of us utilize streaming platforms like Netflix, Hulu, iTunes, and Amazon Prime on a regular basis. We made Vuli to attempt to stand alongside these giants in how well we organize and deliver content as well as how we get to know our users and learn their specific tastes and personalize the platform to every individual. We aim to create an environment that makes users feel safe and unashamed of exploring their sexuality, however “out there” they may feel their tastes are. To do this, we have a strong system of ethics – we won’t sell any content that caters to pedophiles or those with otherwise obscene, abusive and potentially harmful tastes. We won’t sell content that clearly depicts a minor, even if the actress or actor is of age. Over time we’d like to incentivize producers to pay performers higher rates as well as to keep shooting women under the age of 21 to a minimum (we just think it’s largely problematic, with young girls starting at the age of 18 who go on to be very happy and successful being the exception and not the rule).

So, how will we sell the content? I think we can all agree that a Netflix-style subscription model would be ideal, but there are dozens of reasons why it won’t work for a platform like this at this time (I’ll write a whole other post about that). So at first, you can buy scenes individually, or you can buy a series (think buying a TV show on Amazon Prime). The content will be added to the library and you’ll be able to view it any time from your computer or phone at first and eventually various other devices used for streaming. We are aware of other payment methods used in adult, such as paying for packages of minutes or selling HD downloads or rentals, but we’d like to keep it simple. One price, one scene, forever yours.

Paige, love your YouTube channel. Now, I have not heard anything about VULI doing downloads. This is truly a deal breaker for me if you don’t. All of your fabulous content at 240p or 480p DSL speeds that I get does not make me excited. Sure it might take 30 to 60 min to download 720p to 1080p 15 min videos but the results are worth it. Plus I can jump anywhere in the clips instantly. I copy the mp4 files over to a USB stick and plug them into my ROKU to get full screen porn! $20 to $30 per month of unlimited downloads sounds better then $3 a clip to me.

Hello Paige, I’ve been subscribed to your YouTube channel for a while now. I’ve also seen your past content as a porn actress but I must say it’s rather odd watching you in that as you’re a YouTube creator to me. Just bought a founder pack and can’t wait for this site to be live. Keep up the great work, I hope this becomes a huge success for you and is market changing for both the industry and consumer. xD

On youtube, I saw that Audrey Bitoni did multiple 10 minute monologues about who she was. Ideas, how she started, what she likes in front of the camera, or off the camera.

It made Audrey appear to be a real person.
I like that. RedHead Redemption is just like what Audrey did.
More porn stars doing that could generate more intense interests.

This in addition to typical porn shows.

Hey,

I’m just wondering a few things.

First, how do you plan to deal with MindGeek? They’ve created a near-monopoly of the industry and actually done quite a lot of harm to the industry as a whole. Their acquisitions keep growing and so many of the top studios now fall under their purview. Since they own so much, I’m guessing you’ll need to do some business with them in order to make sure the content is expansive enough for a variety of different users.

What I’m concerned about is whether or not they’ll attempt some kind of hostile takeover if this site succeeds. They’ve done it several times before, and I’d rather not have that happen here.

Secondly, do you have an idea yet (that you can reveal) of which studios you plan to work with? Considering how so many studios are owned by such a small amount of larger companies, how will these agreements work? If we’re trying to promote ethics, there are some popular studios who seem to not deal in ethics or care about it at all. What kind of vetting will there be?

Third, is there a general estimate yet of how much content will be original and how much will be produced elsewhere?

Fourth, is the site going to be exclusively focused on high budget, more serious work, or will some of the silliness we’ve come to expect from mainstream porn be offered as well? Variety is obviously ideal, so I’m just wondering what the range of content will be.

Fifth, has pricing been determined? I assume there won’t be a flat fee, and every video will be priced according to how the studio wishes, but will shorter/lower budget content be priced the same as longer/higher budget productions? Will some geographic locations have to pay a different price to the US? On that note, will there be any geographical restrictions?

Lastly, why no option to download the scenes? If it’s ours forever, shouldn’t we be allowed to view them offline? I understand that there’s a piracy element involved here, so I can get that reasoning, but is there any other reason why scenes won’t be downloadable? Or will some studios be open to the idea while others won’t, and will that be reflected on the site accordingly? Or am I misunderstanding something and scenes will be viewable offline?

If you’ve read this, I really appreciate it. Hopefully some of my questions can be answered in the future.

I really do support the site and I’ve been following it since the BB days. I know some answers have been kind of answered in your videos, but there still seems to be a lot of “mystery” surrounding the site and things really seem to be pretty vague at the moment.

Anyway, thanks for this, and I really hope it does succeed, not only in terms of finance, but in terms of pushing the industry towards more ethical behavior.

It’s so good to see this happen, as it might change things you like to see change and maybe me as well.

I came to notice that a few days ago there were several icons at the bottom of the page, on the right side, indicating a variety of possibly payment options, which would be optimal, but today there is only the ‘Paypal’ icon. How many possibilities will be provided for customers to pay?

“One price. One scene. Yours forever.” is a great policy as one would not have to buy a whole DVD or series if he is only interested in one scene. The pricing seems to mean that globally all customers pay the same amount, which sounds good to me. ‘Yours forever’ suggests that scenes are available for download, but you mention streaming, which on is own is great for most people, but when things change and the site does not operate any longer or the policy changes to not to stream to a certain country or a customers situation changes and he would like to enjoy his scenes, but can’t stream them. So will scenes be available for download or as stream only?

How do you solve Chad’s problem? He is into something specific with specific persons. If you get all the scenes with his interests fulfilled you won’t help him much as he has already seen them. Provided that you incentivize producers to produce porn with his interests and the persons he is into, you only help him as often as new content of that sort comes out. Your algorithm will not provide anything he wants to watch if it does not feature the tings he likes with the people he likes.

I’m not sure where this site will go, but I am easy to please. You put a chick in a nurse outfit and if I like that chick it is cool. I will like another chick in a nurse outfit if I like that chick, so tags would be sufficient for the most part, algorithms might fail me. On Netflix it pains me to type something in the search and get suggestion of things are might be similar instead of telling me that they don’t offer what I searched for.

Zero-context sex is only fun for a while to watch or with people one wants to see, but often you can say that if you have seen one scene you saw them all. There are not many things one can do to get things ‘new’ for a while. 3 guys on a gal. 5on1, 10on1, 100on1 or a 101on2. Double penetration, triple penetration, double anal, triple anal, 9 guys in one hole. One can watch those scenes, but it is often produced without any meaning to it. I feel like your content will be different and that it will be nice to look at and give the viewer something that lasts longer.

Could you please elaborate on “otherwise obscene, abusive and potentially harmful tastes.”? Porn is selling a fantasy and of course it bleeds into society, like more people trying anal, because people get more open about it. However like with films it is entertainment, which only differs in the fact that people watch porn to get off, while being entertained if at all, that stays on the screen. No one goes around and kills people, because that happens in a lot of movies. While in reality I find it concerning that teachers have sex with their students, which seems to be reported more often in the US as of late, I find porn depicting such power dynamics alright, unless it tries to depict minors. In reality I could consider it abusive, in porn I do not.

KINK features content that is not my cup of tea, tying people up can be OK, bondage is fine, but for me personally it goes to far if breasts are get so tightly bound that they turn dark-red or almost purple. For me it is fine that people are into that and watching it as it gets produced by professionals and every one is safe, but I see that others find it obscene, abusive and harmful. Often I found scenes to be too “rapey”, but if one realizes that it is interesting because of the power-play, it can be hot, as long as it is consensual, and it is just depicted as non-consensual. BDSM stuff like breath-play or medical play can be harmful and I don’t like to watch them, but they are out there.

You talked about food-fight porn, which could be considered obscene I think, but I would say its just a kink and I would watch it. So if you are saying nothing that depicts minors that is totally clear and we know where we are, but with the rest we are a bit in the dark as it is unclear what will be sold and what not. Arguably it’s not a black and white issue, but please be more specific about it.

There are things I am interested in and others are not as much and they like things I don’t like as much. A bunch of guys painting a chicks face white, some say that demeans her, then how about a bunch of chicks squirting onto a guy, is that OK or does he get degraded?! Ejaculating men are fine, so ejaculating females should be as well, right? Passionate things like biting, scratching and spitting, might be too much for some. Kinks that are extreme and obscene for some, like pegging and watersports, can be fun for others. Would you say that is good if you pick content that features questionable content you know is produced with good ethics? That way you can incentivize producers to delivers scenes that are well produced and with the required ethics (which should be the case for everything else as well) and eventually producers with bad ethics will re-think their position or go out of business.

Will your scenes be available on the platform as well?

Do you offer BTS (behind-the-scenes) footage for the scenes if one has bought a scene and an interview is not part of the scene itself? Ideally with a discount or free of charge. Or some video(s) that provide knowledge, even a documentary if you fancy, to give people a deeper understanding about their favorite content. I mean people might be into anal porn, and more information on that might not change that, but if they know what lengths porn stars usually go through to ensure that they are prim and proper as well as prepared for harder anal sex, the viewers might not try to ask porn stars to do anal all that easily. The same is true for their own anal attempts as porn takes a turn of shortcuts and if a porn guy meets a porn girl he can stick it right up her butt, while we know that preparations are required. At least I think we all know that, but if viewers are mistaking about how easy anal might be, some (non-)pornographic content might clear that up. Goes well with other sex-acts as well.

Turned out to be a quite lengthy comment.

It’s good to see BangBox has finally made it live! Or Vuli.

Took me a while to find the site (both Bing and Yahoo engines returned no results). And it only showed up on Google after I had typed in the full Vuli(dot)tv address. When I typed the word ‘Vuli’ alone into Google, I landed on an Australian trampoline company lol.

Of course, it’s a new site and may take a while to climb the search results. It looks clean and professional, if a little overly-feminised. From the male perspective, it may even be considered TOO tasteful for many. But I’m sure market forces will dictate how the site will look over time.

Congratulations by the way!

It’s great to see Vuli take its first steps in the wild porn jungle. I look forward to purchasing lots of quality content in the coming years.

A big thanks to everyone who contributed to making this site happen!
