Really Rose?! Really?????
OK, so we're all grown ups here so here is how it goes.......
Stop it. Just stop it.
I am not going to even go into the BILLIONS of dollars a year spent on the consumption of porn.
I am not going to even go into the THOUSANDS of blogs dedicated to porn; porn performers, and/or nudes.
I am not going to even go into the HUNDREDS of professional adult actors who routinely turn up for work and do the job that allows us to spank our monkeys on a regular basis.
And here is what we really are not going to do.
We are not going to shame people who do porn.
We are not going to shame people for the type of porn they do.
We are not going to shame the use of the word porn and instead use the pasteurised version "adult entertainment". We can use either, or both. Neither is a "dirty word".
We are not going to shame people who like or do porn.
Porn - made with consenting adults - is an industry that is not "dirty".
Porn is an industry that supplies jobs. Many jobs.
Porn is an industry that values safety. In spite of the small number of high profile HIV infections, the Porn/Adult Industry has a better safety record than Construction, Nursing, Public Transportation and even Teaching. It makes news because it is fundamentally about sex. And sex sells.
Porn is porn. It is an Industry. It is the Supply that meets Demand. It is a culture in and of itself that sits within our own culture.
Porn - and those who do it and/or watch it - are not evil.
Stop demonising those in it, and those who like it.
We can and must do better as a community.
And that's my 2 Cents Worth.
