Something to Wine About is showcasing three amazing women, Lindsay Steadman, Estrella Jaramillo, and Veronica Kaulinis who will promote more discussion in the sex education space. This panel's purpose is to allow women to openly discuss women's social stigma around sex, learn about the state of our sex education & how effective our policies prepare us in taking care of ourselves and promote more access to women's intimate health.
What is Ethic porn?
Porn plays a complex role in society, and more and more, it’s being used as a surrogate for sex education, as described in this recent NY times piece: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/07/magazine/teenagers-learning-online-porn-literacy-sex-education.html. Much of porn, however, is problematic in some way or another, e.g. it does not show real sex acts, or actors may not have fully consented to everything being shown, or actors are not being paid for their work. There is an emerging movement, especially among feminist and queer performers and directors, to create and disseminate ethical and feminist porn that addresses some of these issues (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/05/style/porn-women-nonbinary-queer.html). In this talk, I will discuss some of the things that can make porn ethical, and show clips of porn films from various directors with different approaches to ethical porn. After the screenings, we’ll have small group discussions about the films, followed by a larger group discussion about the present and future of ethical porn.
