Karma Pervs – Erotic Art Philanthropy

Erotic art fundraiser to benefit sex-positive, queer & kink-friendly causes!

Karma Pervs began as a monthly fundraiser where I posted unique photo sets of images taken by photographers and visual artists. The proceeds were donated to non-profit organizations in my community. Over the years, more $7800.00 has been raised through over 3,000 photos. 

It all started when I was nominated for AVN Awards “Best New Web Starlet” and I realized that I was the only performer on the list without a membership pay site. It seemed like an opportunity to capitalize on all the internet traffic hits to my website that came with this growing visibility by inviting new online friends to support my community. And it provided a great excuse to working with my favorite photographers and have fun getting our creative juices flowing!

The membership aspect of the project only lasted a few years as the high costs of working with an ‘adult’ payment processor made the project difficult to sustain. Currently, the erotic philanthropy takes the form of annual holiday card collaborations with visual artists. Funds are raised each December and cards are also gifted to those who donate directly to the organizations. 

Past causes have included STOP AIDS Project, Center for Sex & Culture, St. James Infirmary, San Francisco Sex Information, National Coalition for Sexual Freedom, Leather Archives, TGI Justice Project, Lyon-Martin Health Services, Communities United Against Violence (CUAV), SWING (Sex Workers in Group) Thailand, Outsiders UK, NARAL, and many others. Photographers and visual artists have included Aeric Meredith-Goujon, The Center for Sex and Culture’s Photo Club, Amelia Avilés, Jeffer, Robert Lawrence, Tristan Crane, Morgan Weinert, N. Maxwell Lander, JT, Shilo McCabe, Michael Rosen, Jamee Baiser, Erika Moen, Ingrid Mouth, and LesserGodsArt. Models have included Dylan Ryan, Kelly Shibari, Arabelle Raphael, Leland Carina, Varina Adams, Allison Moon, Lux Alptraum. The project has been featured on Violet Blue’s TinyNibbles, Fleshbot, Daily Dot, Cory Silverberg, XBiz, The Scavenger, and many more.
