In what could be a first for the industry, a pornsite has offered to host a mainstream web series on their platform. That website is xHamster and that series is Sense 8. Sense 8 was abruptly shut down after the first two seasons, something that resulted in an outcry among fans. This resulted in Netflix agreeing to a 2 hour finale for the last season.
xHamster has its thoughts put out well. In a letter to the show creators, Lana Wachowski and Lilly Wachowski, they said that they had the numbers and the resources to become a platform for the series. They also said that they lauded for the series for their unique take on human relationships and showing on screen sex.
If this happens, it would be be surprising, as the porn industry is well respected outside India. Out there, they also have an awards ceremony, the AVN awards, that cater strictly to the world of porn.
