Cash3x is a relatively new adult affiliate program for promotion of PornStreamLive and the forthcoming PSLGirls. The former site is a collection of high quality exclusive content videos and corresponding photos. However, from what we can gather, the companion site is what is supposed to really set this program apart as a sort of social network for adult performers. Unfortunately, creating such a network, by it’s very nature, is rife with obstacles. Not the least of which is depending upon adult performers to do anything. So, although the program tour specifies that site as forthcoming, until it is actually realized affiliates are encouraged to rather focus on what is currently available.

Although Cash3x is less than a year old, in that time their primary site has continued to update, amassing a fair amount of high quality content. Some affiliates will be pleased to know that in the past couple of months they have begun making hosted galleries available to their affiliates for promotion. Additionally, since the program uses NATS as their affiliate front-end, affiliates can enable feeds in their settings and then access those galleries via RSS. Please note, however, those feeds are not formatted for what we like to call plug-and-play promotion, meaning that while affiliates can use them as a starting point, some customization is warranted.
It is also worth noting that this is the first affiliate program with a Pay-per-click option that we have seen in quite some time. Made all the more intriguing by the fact that this is not a dating or traffic exchange program where PPC is much more prevalent. Those affiliates who can send large amounts of traffic without needing to concern themselves over conversions should definitely check it out.
While a social network for adult performers might sound like a great idea, for it to be fully realized relies heavily on either 1) said performers actually using it, or 2) content creators posing as those performers in their stead. If you have spent any time in the peripherals of the adult industry you have probably already seen that getting the community to collectively do anything – even simple stuff in their own best interest – is a lot like herding cats. This is why similarly themed sites usually end up going the route of option two.
While the folks at Cash3x have their work cut out for them in regards to their forthcoming social-network site, the high quality exclusive content site they already have up and running has a lot of potential.
