Porn stars get paid to have sex. Prostitutes get paid to have sex. But porn is legal, and prostitution is not.

And now porn stars are letting fans pay for the chance to have sex with them on camera. What is going on?

On November 1, the website ​​​Adult Verified Video Chat​​ announced that it was auctioning off the chance to appear in a scene with popular porn actress ​​Dillion Harper​.

While the ​auction page doesn’t blatantly state that the winner will have sex with Dillion Harper, it is implied by certain requirements.

The winner must undergo industry-standard, third party testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) as well as submit two valid forms of government-issued identification in compliance with​​ ​2257 regulations​, part of the US’s stringent record-keeping stipulations imposed upon pornographers.

In fact, there are quite a few rules for entry. A spokesperson for Adult Verified Video Chat told VICE that the age requirement for the auction caps at 50 because “that was one of Dillion’s requests.” The winner also has to provide his or her own transportation to Las Vegas, where the scene will shoot in late January.

It’s the second adult film role auction that Adult Verified Video Chat has hosted; the ​first​ gave bidders a chance to star with squirting queen ​Cytherea in August, and a spokesperson for the site said they hope to start hosting multiple auctions per year.

While at first glance the concept of someone bidding thousands of dollars (the Harper auction’s opening bid was $2,500—and hasn’t changed, at the time of publication) to have sex with a porn star in front of a video crew might seem like prostitution, adult industry experts say it’s not.

“If Tom Cruise auctioned off the ability to appear in his next movie, what the winning bidder gets is the opportunity to star in this movie. That’s what they are winning,” Las Vegas-based adult industry attorney Marc Randazza told VICE.

Randazza explained that the differentiation between pornography and prostitution generally refers back to a 1988 California Supreme Court case, People v Freeman. The Freeman decision basically found that although porn performers are ostensibly paid to have sex, they really aren’t; first, they are paid for appearing in a film.

Another basic tenet Freeman established is the direction of payment. Porn stars aren’t doing prostitution, according to the California Supreme Court, because they are paid by a third party rather than by the person they are having sex with. OK, so then wouldn’t that cover garden-variety pimps and madams? Well, no.

Apparently, professionalism plays a big role in the legal differentiation between paying for sex and paying for the chance to have sex on camera.
