Much love to all my minority bros/sisters ❤. Curious if any Middle Eastern peeps are here? Would love to connect as I've only met 2 MEs in all my 6+ years in this industry. Sad, but still hopeful!

Hello, fellow creatives! I want to share a project that I have busting my butt on and thought you might enjoy it. It's WanktheVote.com. We're currently running ads on PornHub and other porn sites to route people to this site. The ads promise free, sexy 18+ content. They are then brought to WanktheVote.com, where they are given the hottest 18+ content right now—voter info—and of course porn. Please enjoy, and if you do please share!
