    So we decided we wanted to go ahead and set up our own adult webpage.
    All original pure content.
    We will make the videos.
    We will find the girls.
    We will build the page from scratch.

    But, obviously many rules and regulations come into play.
    Is it illegal for us to film pure content when both parties are consenting, and are of legal age?
    Also, is it against the law for the parties (which in this case are employees) to get paid?

    We really want original content. Read somewhere the copied content does not really make money. Also, majority will be marked.

    I would really really check with a lawyer for this info to make sure you have everything covered. I can tell you that all legit porn sites in the US have a link to a 2257 compliance statement that gives contact info for documentation on age, content, etc.

    Totally check with a laywer on that.

    I'm actually planning on doing something similar in a little while. I just plan on testing the waters a bit, then I'll take it a step further if it ends up working out well. Good luck with your adult site!

    Answer to your question requires deep knowledge of adult industry so I would seek information from adult forums like GFY rather than from BHW

    Pretty much got the same suggested respond from all of you. Seems like that is the best thing to do!
    I also plan on only testing the waters. Not expecting to have 30 original vids over night lol. :) appreciated guys
