Thanks to social media, the distance between porn stars and fans has never been smaller.

In November of last year, Roddy*—a soccer fan and self-confessed porn enthusiast—arrived at a London apartment for a new type of date. He showed up for an intimate encounter with one of his favorite porn actresses. This wasn’t something Roddy had paid for—at least, not outright—and neither was he a professional arriving for a shoot. He’d been invited along for one reason: He’d won an online raffle.

In the world of online pornography, this experience is called #FuckAFan, and it typically works like this: A porn performer posts on social media that they’re running a competition, inviting punters to buy tickets. The lucky winner gets to have sex with them, on film.

The idea of fans appearing in porn isn’t new: put the phrase, or its near variations, into any suitable website and you’ll find plenty of videos that purport to show lucky amateurs getting to know their favorite stars. American director Jim Powers even made a film called Fuck a Fan back in 2009; it spawned 15 sequels.

In June of 2018, San Diego-based actress Gabby Quinteros announced a #FuckAFan competition on Twitter. Entrants were invited to subscribe to Gaby’s website in order to be entered into a monthly prize draw. Since then, other American performers have followed suit.

Now, the trend is starting to gain more traction in the UK. Over the past couple of months, a small number of British adult entertainers have started to run what they insist are genuine competitions.
