Being in the adult / NSFW content creation industry, you KNOW the struggle of operating your business in the grey-ish areas available in terms and conditions.

We know about how Meta treats female nipples, for example.

We know many subreddits don’t allow posts from anyone with even a hint of a connection to NSFW subreddits.

In the same vein, traditional job posting websites don’t allow for posts related to porn or adult content.

For example, Indeed’s terms state the following:

“If you provide User Content, it must comply with the Site Rules (below). Your User Content must not be unlawful, fraudulent, discriminatory, threatening, abusive, libelous, defamatory, obscene, or otherwise objectionable, irrelevant, or unconstructive. Your User Content must not contain sexual, ethnic, or racial or other discriminating slurs. Your User Content must not contain proprietary information, trade secrets, intellectual property of another person, or confidential information. Your User Content must not contain spam, advertisements, solicitations, chain letters, pyramid schemes, investment opportunities, or any other commercial communication besides Job Ads under this Agreement. Your User Content must not be harmful to anyone, especially minors.”

So, most likely, traditional job posting sites won’t be an option. Below, I’ve listed how you CAN find a NSFW virtual assistant.

Adult industry job sites

There are sites dedicated to the adult industry specifically, such as Sexy Jobs and UnHoly Jobs, and where you would be able to post an ad for a virtual assistant. You’ll find many existing postings by “fansite management” agencies looking to represent creators. An agency may offer the services you’re looking for, but the experience will likely feel less personal and less customized to your specific brand. The larger a company, the more standardized their processes become.

If you were posting your own ad on a site like Sexy Jobs, you may be limiting your pool of candidates, because most virtual assistants are not seeking out NSFW creators specifically. Also keep in mind that these sites are primarily US-based, which may or may not be ideal for you.

Personal referrals

Another way to find a NSFW VA is through word-of-mouth. If you know other creators, it can be helpful to ask them if they work with a virtual assistant and if they can refer you. If you don’t currently know any other NSFW creators, start networking! You can connect with people through TikTok, Twitter, Reddit, and Instagram. Twitter and Reddit will likely be the easiest for you to find other creators through.

Reddit

While I have seen a few NSFW-related job postings on Reddit, it doesn’t seem to be a commonly used forum for this.

Considerations when hiring your NSFW VA

One of the biggest concerns when looking for your virtual assistant will be your personal security and safety, especially if you operate your NSFW business anonymously / using a pseudonym. You’ll want to ensure that you can trust who you’re working with.

If you’re working with an individual VA, you can request identity verification and links to public social media profiles.

If you’re working with an agency, you can ask for references and reach out to anyone who may have written a testimonial for them.

As with hiring an assistant in any field, you’ll also want to ensure you have chemistry and rapport. Working with someone you don’t get along with will not make your life easier or more fun. The best way to do this is via video call. If you want to remain anonymous (i.e. you don’t show your face in your work), you can keep your own video turned off, and explain this to the VA beforehand. While this is perfectly okay, keep in mind the VA may also want to verify your identity and make sure they’re talking to a real person, too.

Depending on the work you’ll need your VA to do, you’ll want to make sure they have the appropriate skills. For example, someone with absolutely zero photography or video editing experience may not be the best fit if you need a lot of photo or video editing done. If you have a personal website and need blog posts, make sure they have writing skills and can match your voice/brand.

Finally, if you create content within a particular niche, or geared towards a particular kink, ensure your VA understands your niche beforehand and is comfortable working in that space.
