Just a reminder
Yep. A real thing. And one of their reasons was, essentially, because they don’t want employers -not- hiring women because they fear lawsuits from not paying them fair wages.
Can’t make that up.
i guess i regret most of the people i’ve slept with but not in an active way. i don’t regret them as experiences as much as validations of douchebags who didn’t deserve my attention
When a man watches a woman get fucked on screen, he sees his conquest, his fuck doll, his wet-dream inspired perfect sex object, served up for him on a silver platter, gift wrapped and ribboned, ready for his consumption. But a woman- she sees herself. She masturbates to her own objectification, commodification, dehumanization and sexual punishment. She masturbates to ‘shut up and take it, slut’. She masturbates to ‘I’ll shove two dry fingers in your cunt, that’ll teach you’. She masturbates to ‘this is what your body is for. A vessel for my cock. A meal to chew up and spit out. A body to wipe drool and semen on. This is who you are’.

I just need this to stop. And I’m not calling out my friend who I reblogged this from, I’m calling out this idea and everyone who spreads it around.
This kind of talk hurts sex workers. It is not nuanced, it is crafted only to shock and dehumanize the very people who perform in adult films for work - so the person saying it and the people sharing it feel better about not being “porn stars”.
Sex workers are not objects. If you see them as such, that’s YOUR issue. You are NOT watching an object on screen, you are watching PEOPLE. They are fucking, screaming, crying, yelling, cumming. They are PEOPLE.
This issue of the commodification of women’s bodies in pornography is double edged and people would do well to examine it deeply. Yes, porn is problematic.
But porn is not The Problem.
maybe this is because i’m a sex worker (though not a porn actor), but i don’t find it difficult to acknowledge that i am turned on by the commodification/denigration of my body & gender assignment; find that to be a problem; and yet still recognize that sex workers are people and distinct from the “problem” of porn
