Hunter Moore Makes a Living Screwing You

The hated revenge-porn profiteer says he wants to teach a lesson with his web site. How long before the 26-year-old learns one himself?

One of the great unsolved mysteries to Moore's abiding sexual popularity: Why would any woman who has read this megaslut critiquing a former conquest's vaginal smell on the Internet, with names and faces and links, want to subject herself to that? Hooking up with the Situation on Jersey Shore might be one way to broadcast your loss of self-respect and boost your popularity at the same time so that you might, perhaps, get recognized in Atlantic City. But screwing a dude who posts his partners' dirty underwear?

"People will do anything for the extra couple followers on Twitter," Moore says. "Honestly, what other fucking reason? You know who I am. You know what I do. It's been a little over a year now of me fucking doing this. It's fucking weird. I'm going to Portland in a few days. And I have about 25 different threesomes with other girls who want me to take pictures of them while having sex with me." He has been arranging some of these on Twitter; you can go see for yourself. "I'm going to make a couple thousand dollars off these girls. All I see is dollar signs." He sees dollar signs in the page views he'll get by writing about these situations, using their real names and actual photos and describing their scents, and that will convert to ad revenue in some arbitrary account. "The girls don't give a fuck because they're kind of seeing dollar signs—or cool factor online. The more people you have following you or subscribed to you on Facebook or Tumblr, people are going to think you're cooler."

Some of Hunter Moore's bullshit is a pose, some of it's troll bravado, but some of it is a little scarier, an echo of a viral hive mind where individual welfare always trumps common good. I ask what he thinks of cyber-bullying. "People are probably going to want to fucking kill me after I say this. But if you are quote-unquote being cyber-bullied, you should just fucking kill yourself." He continues: "My site is different. If you're posted, and people are like, 'You're fat; kill yourself,' I can understand why people are hurting themselves over it, which I hope to God never happens. But these kids who have never even been posted on my site, who are getting called a 'faggot' from a couple bullies at school? They're just weak-minded people. The shit I went through? Fucking 10,000 times worse than these fucking kids—the kid who made that video who went viral?"—he's talking about Jamey Rodemeyer, the 14-year-old Lady Gaga fan from Buffalo who made an It Gets Better video but then took his own life—"Are you fucking kidding me? He's, like, a good-looking kid. Who got called a fag every day? There's something wrong, I feel."

I ask what he went through that was so much worse. "Dude, I got jumped all the time," he says. "I got made fun of all the time. For me, I got made fun of for my nose forever. I have a very ethnic nose. You know what I fucking did? I don't give a fuck, I still got my dick sucked with it. But I hated my nose. I felt insecure about my nose. And all it did was make me want to be even better-looking. So I made a bunch of money, and I got my nose done."

Hunter Moore, the guy who will insult your vagina in front of the world, got a nose job.

"I do not want anybody to ever be hurt by my site—physically," he says. "I don't give a fuck about emotionally. Deal with it. Obviously, I'd get a ton of heat for it. But—I'm gonna sound like the most evil motherfucker—let's be real for a second: If somebody killed themselves over that? Do you know how much money I'd make? At the end of the day, I do not want anybody to hurt themselves. But if they do? Thank you for the money." I ask him to clarify. He adds that he'd remove the content or "do whatever I could to help the situation." By money, does he mean by traffic or because he'd be famous and then, no matter what happened, cash in on that fame? It's all very short-sighted. "The more traffic I'd have that day, I'm going to get paid for. So if someone fucking killed themselves? Do you know how much hate I'd get? All the Googling, all the redirects, all, like, the press"—here he sounds like he's stifling a yawn; it is morning—"I'd get paid for, for that day. And whatever."

There's now a cyber-bullying bill inspired by Jamey Rodemeyer in the New York State House. Specific language about "disseminating embarrassing or sexually explicit photographs, either actual or modified" is included, though the legislation only pertains to minors. "I don't want to get famous for people killing themselves," Moore says. "Wish I didn't attach Hunter Moore to the site, to be honest with you." Yet the following week, Moore let ABC's Nightline come to his house.
