“It’s Pedophilic Men Who Like Seeing Young Boys [in Ads]”
[MONTREAL – October 19]
Sound Investigations releases new undercover footage of MindGeek senior writer Dillon Rice. MindGeek, currently rebranding to Aylo, is the porn giant most known for its most trafficked tubesite, Pornhub. Dillon Rice, a senior scriptwriter for many of MindGeek’s studios, sites and video advertisements, claims that, “for the ads, the dudes that do the most, like, conversion rates are guys that look like 15,” where “it looks like this little kid is having sex.”
Rice: “Essentially, they [MindGeek] have a monopoly.”
Rice: “For the ads, the dudes that do the most, like, conversion rates are guys that look like 15, even though they’re like 20 years old, or like 25. So there’s this one guy named like Jordi. And he just looks like a little kid. And they put him in scenes, so it looks like this little kid is having sex… But it makes a lot of money, so.”
Rice: “We have this guy. His name’s Jimmy Michaels. He looks 13, but they put him in stuff because he looks like that… His ads do well because he looks so young.”
Rice: “It draws predatory women… I think it’s pedophilic men who like seeing young boys, as well.”
Rice: “You could turn them [pedophiles] into whales, purchasing a lot.”
MindGeek, currently rebranding to Aylo, is the porn giant most known for Pornhub. MindGeek operates pornography studios, tubesites (with user-uploaded videos), paysites (with studio-produced videos), an ad network, and more.
Dillon Rice is a senior script writer for MindGeek and helps produce pornographic video advertisements for MindGeek’s sites. Rice shares with Sound Investigations’ undercover journalist that the types of ads he writes for MindGeek that are the most successful are the ads that have adult actors who “look like 15.”
Naming a couple examples, Rice admits that MindGeek puts underage-looking actors in ads specifically because “it makes a lot of money” when an actor looks underage and clarifies, “if you’re just dressing him like a normal person, you can get away with it.”
When the undercover journalist asks Rice who the audience is for these video advertisements, Rice acknowledges that “it’s a lot of young teens” and “a lot of Indians” and that “it draws predatory women” and “pedophilic men who like seeing young boys.”
Upon hearing this, the journalist notes that those drawn to children may have desperate appetites. Rice offers, “You could turn them into whales, purchasing a lot.”
Under 18 U.S. Code § 1470, advertising pornography to minors is illegal.
