Do you want to learn how to upload videos to Pornhub? Seeing as the site is more crowded than Mia Malkova’s asshole, the venture could definitely earn you some big bucks down the line.

This guide will give you all the necessary info for posting kinky content on the site, including:

Let’s begin with the more popular of the two methods: uploading videos as a Pornhub model.

How to Upload Videos to Pornhub as a Model

Not so long ago, anyone could upload porn from their personal collection and make money on Pornhub. However, the copyright issues that came with that party led to payment and payout problems and eventually forced the site to pull the plug.

Today, only verified users or partners can submit their content. On the plus side, the platform’s Model Program is easy to join, use, and profit from.

According to Pornhub’s blog, uploading your own homemade videos can make you upwards of $40,000 a month. You’re going to have sex or play with yourself anyway; why not earn from it?

Of course, you won’t be able to reach these numbers right away. But still, it’s nice to know that, if you play your cards right, making big bucks is that damn easy.

Speaking of uploading, here’s how the entire process goes for registered models.

1. Make a Free Pornhub Account

Signing up for a Pornhub membership is as easy as getting a freshman naked. All you’ll need is a valid email address that you can access to verify your account.

To get started, go to Pornhub’s homepage and select Sign Up in the upper right corner. On the new page, you will need to provide a valid email, choose a username, and pick a password.

Once you click on Sign Up again, you will receive a verification email with a link you’ll need to follow to verify your email address. After clicking the link, just add your date of birth, and the verification process will be complete.

2. Sign Up to Pornhub’s Model Program

Now that you have a free account, it’s time to sign up to the platform’s official model program. This is where things get a bit tricky, as the verification process requires personal info.

To get accepted into the program, you will need to provide:

  • Your full legal name
  • Address
  • Date of birth
  • Gender
  • A photo or scan of your ID

Plus, you will also need to give them your signature, choose your account type, and pick a preferred payment method.

When you’re done adding your information, Pornhub will ask for a clear photo of a valid ID. Depending on your home country and preference, you can upload a copy of your ID, passport, or driver’s license.

Finally, you will have to complete a live biometric facial scan. Now, despite the word facial, there’s nothing sexy or intense about it, and it barely takes a few seconds.

Namely, you’ll just have to turn on your camera and pose for 3 to 5 seconds. That will be enough for Pornhub to compare your photo to your ID and confirm your identity.

When you’re done, hit Submit.

The platform will take up to 48 hours to process your verification request. When you get the green light, your Pornhub adventure can begin!

3. Get Your Video Ready

Once you’ve been accepted as a model, it’s time to shoot your sex tape and get it up on Pornhub, in front of 22+ million horny peeps.

However, to get people to actually check out your content, you should make sure that the video title, description, thumbnail, and tags are on point. When it comes to getting traffic, the presentation might be even more important than the video itself.

In addition, you should confirm that you appear in the video by clicking Yes under the Verify user section. If you skip this option, your video will not be monetized.

4. Set Up Your Privacy Settings

Next, you will need to set your video’s privacy. The options include Private (hidden from everyone but your friends), Public (free to view with ads), and Unlisted (accessible via a unique link).

Since making money is your goal — and your earnings depend on the video’s views — you’ll generally want to pick Public.

In this section, you can also decide whether you’re going to let other users download your content. Just click Yes or No depending on your preferences, and you’ll be good to go.

5. Upload Away

The last step is quite simple: you just have to agree with the platform’s Terms and Conditions and click Upload. Although it is possible to post videos from any device, Pornhub recommends using a desktop computer to avoid connection breaks.

Important disclaimer: Do not leave the upload page until you see a notification reading Uploaded Successfully. Otherwise, your progress will be lost, and you will have to repeat the process from scratch.

When the video uploads, all that’s left to do is sit back and watch as the views start trickling in. Or, better yet, repeat the process, upload more, and increase your earnings even further.

Who knows, perhaps you’ll enjoy climbing the ranks of verified amateurs enough to become a professional porn star!

How to Upload Videos to Pornhub as a Content Partner

Finally, Pornhub also allows you to become a member of its Content Partner Program. This program is reserved for porn creators wanting to advertise their paysite studio(s) and affiliate program(s).

Once you join, you will get a personalized channel with designated free ad space for your website(s). Pornhub will also promote your content on their homepage and take a percentage of your profits whenever someone clicks on your ads.

Now, uploading videos as a content partner is similar to posting via the Model Program. Namely, it includes the following steps.

1. Join the Content Partner Program

To join the Partner Program, you will need to fill out a form on Pornhub’s Partner page. You can do this without making a regular account first, which makes your job easier.

The form starts with the usual culprits: a username and password. In addition, you will need to provide the name of your studio or affiliate program and list the sites you wish to promote.

When you submit the form, you will receive an email within 72 hours with further verification instructions. Just follow the steps, and you’ll complete the process in no time!

2. Upload Videos

After joining the Content Partner Program, click the Upload button and follow the steps from the Model section. Aside from a new option, the process will be the same.

Namely, uploading videos as a partner gives you the chance to post on three separate platforms simultaneously. These include Pornhub, YouPorn, and Redtube.

When everything is ready, simply click Upload. Once the videos go live, all your fans will have the chance to either stream or download them for some offline fun.


Now that you know how to upload videos to Pornhub, it’s time to whip out your camera and get to shooting. With some creativity and a dash of kinkiness, you’ll be on top of your game in no time!
