You’ve heard of cryptocurrency and you’ve likely heard of Pornhub, but it wasn’t until recently that these two worlds collided. We’re talking about the NFT marketplace and all it has to offer for creative minds and content creators, including those in the adult industry. It’s also blossoming as a lucrative and attractive investment opportunity for cryptocurrency and art enthusiasts. 

Keep reading to learn more about what the NFT marketplace is, what it has to offer both creators and investors, and tips for choosing the best one. 

What Is an NFT and How Does It Work?

NFT is short for non-fungible tokens and is used to describe a non-interchangeable unit of data. These units are stored on a blockchain where they can be sold and traded. Some NFT units are associated with digital files like photos, videos, and audio files. Investors and buyers can trade NFTs for crypto-collectibles including pieces of artwork, photographs, and even GIFs or memes. These items can then be sold, traded, or collected. 

The biggest difference between NFTs and Bitcoin, for example, is that NFTs are non-fungible, which means they can’t be replaced for something else, whereas other cryptocurrencies are interchangeable. Let’s use the example of a sports card as an NFT. If you traded a limited-edition Michael Jordan card for a Lebron James rookie card, you’d have two completely different things, even if they’re valued relatively the same. These are NFTs. Bitcoins and most other forms of cryptocurrency are fungible, which means you can trade one for another and end up with virtually the same exact thing. 

NFTs, at the highest level, are part of the Ethereum blockchain. NFTs are any type of digital file from drawings and music to pornographic videos or erotic audio files. As of this writing, the buzz surrounding NFTs is primarily associated with forms of digital artwork. Some people are willing to pay top dollar for these digital, downloadable files. Like the person who paid $3 million for a signed copy of Twitter founder Jack Dorsey’s very first Tweet

What makes the world of NFTs a little tricky is that people can copy and download a digital file as many times as they want. So, what stops someone from downloading, for free, the same file that someone paid big bucks for? NFTs are designed to give the buyer ownership of the original artwork (or video, audio, or even Tweet). To use an art example – anyone can buy a Jason Pollack print but only one person can own the original. 

The Benefits of NFTs for Creators and Buyers

Before we jump into the NSFW side of the NFT marketplace and how to make money selling your racy creations, let’s quickly discuss the benefits of NFTs for both artistic creators and buyers.

Content Creators and Artists

NFTs give content creators another platform to sell their work on. It also opens up a new market of interested buyers that didn’t exist before. NFTs also offer residuals. Certain NFTs will pay you a percentage every time the original is sold or changes hands. This means that if your content goes viral or the value increases substantially, you’ll get a kickback. 

For adult content creators and sex workers, NFTs offer the same benefits as other platforms like OnlyFans and Pornhub. You get to create original, high-quality content that people want and get paid for providing it. 

Buyers and Investors

If you find yourself on the other side of the NFT equation, there are benefits for you too. After all, without buyers, NFTs would be meaningless. One of the main reasons people deal in NFTs is to show support and love for their favorite artists and creators. You can financially support your favorite creative minds. Additionally, when you buy an NFT you now own certain rights to the content. For example, you can post it online or use it as your profile picture. Other people just enjoy the bragging rights of knowing they own an exclusive piece of “art” and have blockchain documentation to back it up. 

Other risk takers buy NFTs as an investment, in the hopes that people will love the content as much as they do and it will increase in value. This allows you to resell it down the road for a profit. 

The Adult NFT Marketplace Explained

There are countless NFT marketplaces flooding the internet where people can buy, sell, and trade NFTs. It was only a matter of time before NFTs expanded to include the adult market. With millions of pornographic videos, photographs, and audio clips online and an increased number of people looking to make money through online sex work, the partnership only makes sense.

The adult NFT marketplace lets creators sell unique, authentic, and exclusive pornographic material to eager buyers. Similar to filling custom orders and requests on sites like OnlyFans or PornHub, buyers are willing to pay top dollar for adult content designed and produced specifically for them. Many online sex workers see NFTs as an alternate way to sell digital files on social media platforms and other subscription services.

How to Create and Sell Adult NFTs?

Creating NFTs isn’t complicated. Anyone can generate an NFT on the blockchain using a process called “minting”. You’ll need to pay a minting fee and any other transaction fees depending on which blockchain you choose. Once you choose an adult marketplace (more on this in a minute), you have to link it to your blockchain wallet, and then upload the digital content that you want to be converted to NFTs. It can be audio files, video files, or photos. After your content is uploaded, you can set the price, plus any commissions you want for future sales and trades. 

Any freelance online sex worker knows you need to market yourself in order to make money. The same goes for adult NFTs. Now that your content is live and minted, you need to advertise it – and aggressively! The best places to do this are social media, live cam platforms, your personal website or blog, and other digital content sales sites. When a buyer purchases your NFT, the money is automatically added to your digital wallet. 

Tips for Choosing an NFT Marketplace

There are a few things to consider when choosing which adult marketplace you want to work with. The biggest factor will be what type of digital content you’re looking to create and sell. Is it videos, photos, and audio porn? Or are you looking to sell written erotica stories? Each of these will be tokenized on a blockchain, so narrowing down your options can help simplify the process.

You should also find out what types of tokens the adult marketplace deals with and supports. Some marketplaces accept a variety of tokens including Bitcoin, dogecoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin. Others are considered “closed exchanges” and only work with their own unique tokens. Once you choose a marketplace and create an account, fund your blockchain wallet with the approved coins or tokens so you can freely buy, sell, and trade without any issues or delays. It’s also a good idea to learn more about what security measures the marketplace takes to protect both buyers and sellers.  

Choosing the Best Adult NFT Marketplace

So, you know you want to create and sell adult content and capitalize on the growing NFT market, but you’re not sure where to start. Here’s a look at some of the best adult NFT marketplaces and tips for getting started.

CumRocket (CUMMIES)

Similar to OnlyFans, CumRocket allows creators to upload their NSFW content so fans can pay for access using cryptocurrency. The tokens used on CumRocket are based on the Binance Smart Chain, which means they carry minimal fees and transactions occur almost instantaneously. CumRocket is a unique adult NFT marketplace because it’s run more like a community where all members are involved in developing the projects and submitting ideas. CumRocket is currently one of the most popular 18+ NFT exchange marketplaces as it strives to make its mark on the porn industry.

Taboo Token (TABOO)

Taboo Token prides itself on providing content that is exclusive and limited. In other words, they want to be Blockain’s Playboy. This platform was created by the Enkin Coin Marketplace Developers and uses its own adult NFT token. This adult NFT marketplace is cross-chain and uses two solution protocols to offer fast transactions at low costs. 


NaftyArt is another adult NFT marketplace that’s growing in popularity. According to its website, it has a deflationary coin that runs on the Binance Smart Chain. NaftyArt prides itself on being environmentally friendly and offering quick, low-fee services to both sellers and buyers. If you’re interested in creating and selling erotic art, NaftyArt is the NFT marketplace for you. Think of it as a creative playground for sexual collectors, artists, and curators. 


If you enjoy interacting directly with your followers and fans, you’ll love xxxNifty. This adult NFT marketplace aspires to be the world’s leading online network for NSFW and 18+ content creators. The best part is, xxxNifty allows you to engage directly with your followers on a safe and secure platform. Similar to NaftyArt, xxxNifty is a marketplace for sexual artwork created by sellers 18+. Another feature that sets this marketplace apart is that it pairs artists with models, allowing both content producers and collectors to make money. 


This adult NFT marketplace also produces and uses its own unique type of crypto known as PVY tokens. Pornvisory is actually a project that allows users to earn PVY tokens for watching adult content. This project is run in partnership with some of the leading names in the adult industry including Pornhub. Don’t get too excited yet. This project is still in production mode, but users can still watch uploaded videos on the website. Pornvisory plans to launch NFTs on Opensea.io in the near future and showcase some well-known artists who’ve contributed to the creative world of NFTs. Users may also be able to use PVY to shop and purchase services on the site.

NSFW Auctions

NSFW Auctions prides itself on being the first adult NFT marketplace for NSFW content. As the pilot marketplace for adult content, NSFW is one of the most secure and trusted NFT platforms for NSFW content creators. Some additional perks of using this platform include low fees, 24/7 customer support, access to 100% authentic content, and an easy-to-use system where you can do business with ease and without worry.

Things to Consider Before Getting Started in the Adult NFT Marketplace

If dealing with NFTs sounds too good to be true, it’s because this process is still in its infancy. There are a few things to keep in mind before diving headfirst into your new venture.

NFTs have been around for less than 10 years which means they’re still fairly unstable and volatile. It’s common in the world of cryptocurrency for there to be an initial surge in interest and demand as investors and traders flock to get in on “the next big thing”. Once the initial buzz dies down, so may the worth of NFTs. In fact, at the beginning of 2021, the NFT market was starting to look less appealing and vibrant than it once did. This isn’t to say you shouldn’t get involved in the adult NFT marketplace, it just means you should proceed with caution and not get your hopes up too high. 

But proceeding with caution isn’t just reserved for the NFT marketplace. Anyone engaging in online sex work or creating and selling adult content should know that it’s not a fast, easy way to make money. It’s a highly competitive market that takes time and patience to succeed in. You also need to overcome the stigma surrounding NSFW content. Some buyers and traders don’t consider sexually explicit digital content as “art”. And the type of clientele looking for 18+ content are more apt to search for free porn on Pornhub than pay top dollar for something you created or produced. Not many people consider adult content a financial investment. 

Another factor that makes some buyers hesitant to deal with adult NFTs is the lack of age verification protocols that currently exist. At the current time, it’s far too easy for underage creators to sell NSFW content, putting buyers and traders at high risk for unintentionally engaging in illegal activity. NFT marketplace creators are currently working to formulate a solution to this problem. 

Lastly, don’t let the cost of minting your adult NFTs or the idea of creating them overwhelm you. There are plenty of adult NFT platforms that offer minting services for a reasonable fee and will even guide you through the creation, upload, and sales process.

When NFTs and NSFW Content Unite

Cryptocurrency took the world by storm in 2009 and has only increased in popularity since then. The world has gone digital and it was only a matter of time before our currency did too. What started as a few tokens as Bitcoin and dogecoin has now expanded into over 1,500 cryptocurrencies.

Now, digital tokens and NFTs are being used to create, trade, and sell unique pieces of art – including NSFW content. Only time will tell if the theory that “sex sells” will ring true in the digital world of cryptocurrency as well, but with new adult NFT marketplaces surfacing every day, the future looks promising!
