Where’s the organic, free-range ethically sourced porn? - MM#23

If you’re like most people, you don’t think much about where your porn comes from.

You log on.

You do your business.

You log off…

…and say a Hail Mary (there’s that Catholic guilt!).

All kidding aside, there’s a problem with your unconscious viewing habits:

You may be inadvertently contributing to a system that perpetuates abuse (oftentimes horrifying) of the young women performers who have been misled into what they’re getting themselves into.

Every time you go online to view something, you’re voting with your view count. 

Like we did with the food and clothing industries, we need to demand better working conditions for the performers of the content we’re consuming.

In order to do that, we need to educate ourselves on what it looks like…behind the scenes in the porn world (which is what this episode is all about).

In This Episode:

  • Dominick shares his downloads from a 4 hour conversation with Lisa Ann - one of the world’s top 10 most searched porn stars - about the brutal working conditions for many of the young women in the porn game today.

  • Bryan and Dominick watch “feminist produced porn” by famed director Erika Lust with a room of 100+ people in Brooklyn New York…and are jarred by what they see.

  • Dominick is appalled by the Netflix documentary: Hot Girls Wanted – which exposes a brutal system of recruitment, manipulation and abuse of barely 18 year old women in the porn industry.

Special note: An ethical porn site that I now subscribe to: www.Lustery.com

The men and women featured in these videos are couples who have volunteered and consented to have their videos published online. I’ve found the quality to be surprisingly good for home recordings, and the real exchanges between two people who know one another has been refreshing. It was $100 for the year-long membership.
