Not really touched on here is how it's a totally different gig tho. Lots of porn performers don't want to do that shit. It's not just a porn gig, it's running your own business, marketing, constantly being active, and so on. It's not like the porn industry where you could do a few gigs a year or whatever, it's about constantly producing content, being engaged online, etc. Takes up a lot more of your time, it's a very different relationship to the work.

Plus, a lot of them aren't paying other performers for appearing in their videos & shit.

There's loads of this in Southern Africa. Christian organisations are the main thing working on criminalising sex work and getting in the way of often good work on decrim. They'll "save" sex workers by hiring them for a pittance and soon the sex workers will realise that it's shit and go back to sex work secretly while still working for those NGOs. It's an all-round shitty situation.

it depends on how much money your talking about, a few k a week? this is a feild i have a lot of knowledge in. I know cryptocurrines take alot of flak on raddle.me but its honestly the easiest way to hide your money ..

cash>btc > coin mixer (it like washing the coins) > a coin called XMR > to a digtal currency market that dont ask question. If you are out of the USA then you can get a card called perfect money (sign up with fake deet and have the card mail to a drop ) .. there you can load the card when you need cash and pull from atm .

personally the way i make my money is threw cryptocurrencies and if you want to save them you can get a btc wallet on a usb stick ... put the stick in sandwhich bags , tape it up ... put it in a coffee can and bury it (mark the gps location for later ) . just gotta remember your password

Have them deposit for you, and declare on their taxes the income, your deposits will pay your share of the increased tax burden (keep track of your deposits and use a tax calculator website). Major payments that cannot be made in cash, like your rent etc, will be made from this account.

The reason it is really important to trust this person, is they could potentialy steal from you.

IF YOU LIVE IN THE US, DO NOT DELIBERATELY LIMIT YOUR TRANSACTIONS TO BELOW $10000.

In the US, deliberately keeping your deposits below $10000 to avoid reports is a crime called "structuring", even if the money is earned legally. Here's an article about how easy it would be to break this law by accident, and here is one case of exactly that happening.

Needless to say, since this is a crime, banks do specifically keep an eye out for this behaviour, so in the long run you will still attract suspicion, plus you'll be violating the classic rule "only commit one crime at a time."

This is useful for the US and it's territories.

You do not want to make any transaction over $9,999.99. Anything over that amount the bank is federally required to notify the IRS. However, this does not prevent the bank from contacting the IRS, ATF, or local police if they believe the funds are involved with any criminal enterprise. This is for both business and personal accounts.

  • I would open many accounts with different banks.
  • Use the cash and buy money orders to deposit.
  • Use the cash and buy gift cards to stores you frequent.
  • Use the cash and buy VISA, Mastercard, and Amex cards to pay for goods and services.
  • When you file your taxes declare the income and pay taxes on it. Unless you are talking about $250,000+ it is highly doubtful the IRS is going to contact local law enforcement.
  • I know people who run gambling games and they declare the income at the end of the year. They have done this for over a decade and have not had any investigations that were brought to their attention. It is a serious crime to not pay taxes. It is also one of the few crimes that most every country will deport you back to the US for.

I would recommend that you file your taxes on anything that you deposit in your bank account, you can refer to this income as tips from your job which your employer did not include in your paycheck. It helps to have a steady stream of income from some direct deposit to launder this through. If you don't have that, perhaps a trusted friend does (I would recommend someone who you have a connection with that is not mediated by work, like an old friend you've known at least a few years to be a good person, who has a "day job")

Hello! In my own experience [Canada] I've only been scrutinized by the bank itself. I do my taxes and what-not as self-employed and everything has been fine from that end, no audits or anything worrying.

A while back, I was stupid and deposited 2 months worth of income at one time into my bank account and was pulled aside into a separate room to be questioned by bank management. I got out of it with half-truths but I've heard from friends before that they had the cops called then and there to check things out.

I would recommend depositing main living expenses in 2 week intervals (the cost of rent, bills, some savings), like a regular job would pay, and using your bank account to pay those things. Leave the rest of your cash on your person for other expenses (food, shopping, personal things, savings).

Ideally, the amount you deposit into your bank account for living expenses, and the amount you report for taxes, should be similar if not the same.
