Late Wednesday, Pornhub announced on their blog thatPayPal will no longer support payouts. According to the site, this will impact thousands of sex workers.

“We are all devastated by PayPal’s decision to stop payouts to over a hundred thousand performers who rely on them for their livelihoods,” the post read. 

Banks and payment platforms have longdisallowed payments to and from sex workers, but since the passing of the controversialFOSTA-SESTA(Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act and the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act), platforms such as PayPal and also general social media sites seem to be turning more hostile towards porn creators. 

For example, crowdfunding platformPatreon cracked down on adult content creatorsthis June; in theiradult content guidelinesthey state, “We don’t allow pornographic material or sexual services on Patreon, which we define as ‘real people engaging in sexual acts such as masturbation or sexual intercourse on camera.'” PayPal is one ofPatreon’s payment partners.

PayPal has already been listed as aplatform that discriminates against sex workers, according to collective Survivors Against SESTA. In theirAcceptable Use Policy, PayPal states, “You may not use the PayPal service for activities that … items that are considered obscene … certain sexually oriented materials or services.” 

Mashable has reached out to PayPal for comment and will update this article if we hear back.
