We recently received this comment and it seems like the perfect opportunity to speak about the importance of behind the scenes material in what we do.
The BTS at the end of the main movie is edited highlights, so the full BTS movie still has extra material for keen fans. Performer consent is one of our core values, and especially with edgy or taboo scenes, it's absolutely essential that we make the consent of everyone involved clear and transparent to all viewers. The post-credits highlights serve to show a glimpse of the reality on set to everyone who watches the film, even if they don't watch the separate BTS video.
As well as on the membership site where a lot of auxiliary materials such as interviews and the BTS videos are available, we also publish content on other platforms and streaming sites where we upload scenes as a single file. The post-credit outtakes mean that performer consent is visible even if someone is watching the film on Clips4Sale, ManyVids or PinkLabel, while leaving extra value for members of the subscription site which is the only place viewers can access the full behind the scenes video.
The other reason is to defend our brand against piracy. Of course, we hope that members won't share our films on filesharing sites, because they know that doing this impacts our ability to cover costs and to keep doing what we do. But if our films do end up on a tube site, we want performer consent to be visible there too so that the film doesn't end up being viewed out of context where it might have a very different feel and negatively impact our reputation: particularly if it's uploaded with a new (and less positive and respectful) title, keywords and description, as often happens.
Overall, including this material in the main film ensures that it can't be avoided, and that makes our values clear and transparent to all viewers, regardless of where and how a video is accessed. It also provides us with a small degree of legal protection in the event that someone were to maliciously report our site, or one of our videos, to the authorities.
I hope that clears up our position on behind the scenes material. We've recently updated our mission statement to bring it in line with our values, including our focus on transparency in our working practices: you can read more here.
