What is Ethical Porn?

Ethical porn also goes by the name “fair trade porn,” or “independent porn.” You can still watch what you would normally but feel like you're making a difference.
So what does ethical porn offer?: Diversity; body, sexuality, gender, ethnicity. Ultimately changing the stereotypes that mainstream porn possesses. 
Nobody is coerced or tricked into doing anything they don't want to. There are high working standards, rights, respect and fair treatment.

Producers tend to support beginners, making sure they understand that the consequences of acting in a porn film.

Most actors are over 21 as producers want them to have explored their sexuality. So scenes and actors are natural and comfortable. 
Fair and respectful pay ensuring there is no exploitation. 
Directors let desires and pleasure run freely and the actors are able to say ‘no’ without worry.

Think about it this way, if you are conscientious about animal treatment you may buy fair trade brands. 
So if you want to continue your masturbation habits but want to be sure the performers you watch are treated fairly, consider ethical porn.

Talking Porn with Young People

This day last week the @thisisleika panel spoke about porn and sex education. 
We all were of the consensus that sex education needs to incorporate it. Including areas such as pleasure, consent, relationships and sexuality. Currently porn is easier to access than sex education and that's not going to change anytime soon. By the age of 9 many kids already have stumbled onto it. So start by having the conversation. There are really great resources out there to assist, such as #thepornconversation developed by the amazing @erikalust www.thepornconversation.org. @katemoyletherapy also did a piece this week for #ageid, the link is in her bio. 
We can't ban crappy porn but we can talk and teach our young people, so that they may feel empowered and comfortable.
