Want to get access to exclusive content from your favorite adult performers? Looking to monetize more of your NSFW content?
With many adult industry stars unable to work in the current climate of lockdown restrictions, adult content sharing sites like ManyVids are seeing a huge uptick in new sign-ups. Escorts, glamour models, prostitutes and erotic entertainers are all looking for ways to keep earning a living whilst their regular fans are desperate to get a dose of their favorite performers. This Canadian adult content fan site is one of several platforms where the stars of the show get to be in charge of what they do, how much they charge and who gets to see it.
In this review, we take a closer look at the ManyVids site including what is available, how much it costs (and how much you can earn) as well as how it differs from the competition.
Founded in 2014 and based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Many Vids is a video hosting and live streaming platform where members can monetize their adult content. A sort of ecommerce store but just for adult models, entertainers and performers.
Differing from the main tube sites, all of the material uploaded to Many Vids is fully under the control of the creators who maintain fully copyright.
The company is well regarded in the adult industry for helping to pioneer a service which caters for fans of amateur adult content whilst protecting the performers and providing a safe space to sell their work.
In 2018, ManyVids won the XBIZ Award for Clip Site of the Year and were nominated for Progressive Web Company of the Year and Emerging Web Brand of the Year. The following year they also picked up the 2019 XBIZ Europa Award for Global Web Brand of the Year.
The site has over three million active members and receives around 10 million visits each month ranking it in the top 250 adult websites in the world.
Types of Content & Services
The Many Vids platform allows adult content creators to sell a wide range of services including:
- Individual Photos and Photo Sets
- Individual Videos and Video Series
- Texting and Phone Call Services
- Live Streaming
- Custom videos
Fans of particular models can pay subscription fees to become a paid-up member of their fan club and receive exclusive content. Models can also use the ManyVids platform to set up crowdsourcing campaigns.
Visitors to the site can search for models they have seen on other services or browse from the selection available. Content is then categorized into Straight, Gay Men and Trans genres with more than 1.1 million video clips available from around 80,000 models and producers including some porn stars and professional studios.
All channels, videos and photos are tagged with popular keywords so you can easily filter for MV Stars using search terms such as:
The content is mostly NSFW and features nude and sexual performances though not everything you find on ManyVids is XXX. For fans of top cam models and popular adult stars, there are also non-nude clips, interviews and candid shots.
The majority of models on the ManyVids site are women with 73,000+ MV Girls and you can browse through this huge selection using a variety of filters to refine your search:
- Physical characteristics (hair/eye color, body type, breast size)
As well as offering a content sharing platform for models to sell their videos, clips and subscription services, ManyVids also offers a couple of other great features.
The first is MV Social, a platform similar to all those social networking sites out there which lets models post pics and status updates for customers to browse. It’s a marketing tool but one that offers good free content and a way to follow socially active models. A brilliant way to engage audiences, the service helps MV Stars build a following.
MV Crush is a subscription service in which customers pay a regular membership fee for exclusive and regular content from models.
ManyVids also offers Custom Store through which models can sell a wide range of items and services that fall outside the regular/custom videos and photos. This can be pretty varied and ranges from intimate items like lingerie and sex toys through to signed merchandise, Kik and Snapchat usernames and more. There’s not much you couldn’t sell on the store; as long as you have a market for it, ManyVids will let you sell it.
Identifying that a lot of customers are looking for kinky clips and pics, ManyVids introduced MV Fetish as a way of categorizing those popular subgenres in one space. Here you can find more than 724k videos covering everything from Goddess, Ass and Foot Worship to Wedgies, Slave Training and Edging Games. It’s one of the most popular areas of the site and attracts a lot of traffic, particularly those models who offer custom video requests.
Speaking of which, ManyVids isn’t the only adult content sales platform to offer Custom Video requests but they do have a lot of producers and models who can create these. So, if you really fancy something specific then you can pay for a unique video starring the model(s) of your choosing.
And, finally, recognizing the duality of what they were offering for existing cam models looking to diversify their income streams, ManyVids launched its own live streaming adult cam platform, MV Live.

There is some free content on ManyVids but the best videos and clips are for sale with each model setting their own prices.

How much money can you make with ManyVids?
ManyVids has one of the best commission rates around for model payments and the platform pays out between 60% and 80% of all the profits you generate through your sales. This varies depending on the type of income:
- 80% paid out on custom content request, tips and tributes plus MV Crush subscriptions (90% in first year!).

You can find out more about how ManyVids fares against some of the competition in our recent features reviews, ‘OnlyFans vs ManyVids: Which is Best for Performers?’ and ‘ManyVids vs Clips4Sale: How Do They Compare?’.
As for how much you can earn, the answer is the same as with any adult industry work. You get out what you put in and those models who produce regular, high-quality content and work hard to build their fan base could produce an income of $5,000 to 10,000+ per month. There are no ‘typical’ salaries in this game but hard work, patience and consistency does pay off. You can find out more about how to maximize your earning potential (specifically with live camming) in our recent feature guide ‘How to Get Started Camming: A Beginners Guide’.
Registering With ManyVids
Signing up with ManyVids is completely free whether you are a model or a fan and no credit card is required.
As a model, you are required to authenticate your sign-up by providing a digital copy of your photo ID before you can upload any content. This is to verify that all models are over the age of 18.
ManyVids: We Say…
As one of the fastest growing adult industry platforms around, ManyVids is constantly innovating new ways for its models to build a passive income. Not only can they choose to do this from a number of traditional methods but they can also customize what they offer in some unique ways. What we like about the site (from a model’s perspective) is that the service now incorporates its own live cam offering so you can have all your earning streams under one roof….but you don’t have to use MV Live for camming.
The commission structure is very generous and if you offer custom videos or use the platform for camming then you can earn a lot more on ManyVids than via many other live cam sites. And with 10 million visits per month, there is definitely the traffic here to make MV Live a big player in this market.
The site is easy to use for both the models and fans with plenty of features, clean & slick functionality and secure payment processing. There’s plenty of choice of models and a decent amount of incoming traffic.
The main selling point for ManyVids though is its approach to building a community. It recognises that fans like to be close to their favorite performers and the stars earn more if they keep their audiences engaged. By offering messaging, social networking, stories and ‘Instagram’ style feeds ManyVids has captured the power of social media. As a result, its stars enjoy a high profile and can build their followers to maximize their income.
Overall, ManyVids is definitely one of the best clip/fan sites around and is fast becoming a ‘player’ in the world of live camming. With its growing number of models and members there is evidence that there is an appetite for a one stop shop for adult web performers and we can certainly count ourselves as being hungry for more.
