Back in April, we heard from Lindsey Banks about how she was staying adaptable during the COVID-19 quarantine.
Banks didn’t have to change up her camming and clip content making schedule too much, but she did start doing a weekly live broadcast every Monday via InstagramLive. She complimented the live show — B95 for BanksieTV — with her “Rona Report & Relief Plan,” where adult industry community sponsors donated to support Texas-local food banks and other organizations.
Now, two months later, we are getting an update about her efforts — and hot damn did they turn out great!
A recent press release broke down how the show unfolded, what was talked about (and who was talked to/with) and what the bigger impact was overall.
Topics covered during the Segment One episodes of the live show series revolved around the pandemic’s impact on the adult industry, learning about the various new norms, working from home and the importance of community during times of strife and change. Special guests included — among others — Grooby’s Kristel Penn; social media expert, Alex Lecomte; business development sales associate, Sasha Williams; and model support marketing manager at Pornhub, Natalia Hampton, who is credited with helping to make the project an ongoing success…
…and “success” it totally was! According to press material, after finishing the first cycle of weekly Rona Reporting on B95, B95 for BanksieTV has raised more than $10,000 to help support pandemic relief.
According to press materials, “We invite our industry allies to join and encourage those to flatten our curve, teach tolerance and share different ways to help and stay safe.”

Companies such as Clips4Sale, Pornhub and We-Vibe partnered with BanksieTV to support local pandemic relief efforts. We-Vibe provided B95 with Womanizer and Pjur luxury products to give away during the live broadcasts, while Pornhub gifted surprise six-month and yearly Pornhub Premium memberships to fans who donated to the fund.
Donations have been made to the following organizations: Texas Central Texas Food Bank, Barbados Sole to Soul Foundation, South Africa SWEAT Organization, BLM Campaign Zero and Black Women’s Health Imperative
“[W]e encourage others to support in helping, whether it be by donating, signing petitions, staying home or using your platform and voice,” a representative from BanksieTV said.
They continued, “We ended our first segment with performers Sia and Big Sexy and [will soon] start the next segment, where we will catch up with others who have excelled in our industry as top performers and want to give back. From cyber, cancel, pop and porn culture to their everyday life, we will touch on different topics with our next guests as we get to learn more about them and their experiences during a worldwide pandemic gone revolutionary!”
