how do u know the porn you’re watching is totally consensual
that these women weren’t forced into this work
that these women are of age
that these women were treated properly on set
that these women are okay with it being released in the format it has been released(onto which website/etc)
you fucking don’t
alright listen up radfem ‘cause I’ about to blow ur little mind
IF YOU’RE WATCHING HIGH-PRODUCTION PORN, YOU CAN BE CERTAIN OF ALL OF THESE THINGS. The major companies require an STD test every fourteen days, and some even require WEEKLY tests. They g to great lengths to make sure the performers feel comfortable on set and their actions are consensual, before and after filming. They go to very, VEEEEEEEERY, perhaps annoyingly great lengths to verify age. If I lose ONE of my government-issued ID’s, I’m totally fucked fr work with these people. We also have to sign a LOT of paperwork, on video, while LISTENING to someone tell us “this will be published on the internet. is that okay?” to which we answer YES.
More into amateur porn? That’s okay! You can still take measures to ensure that you’re buying safe, consensual porn! By buying it DIRECTLY from female performers on websites like MyGirlFund. The, you don’t even have to give money to one of the big porn companies, which many of us understandably have some qualms with. It goes straight to her!
I realize there are problems in sex work. NONE OF THEM GET SOLVED BY CONVINCING PEOPLE TO STOP BUYING OUR PRODUCTS. YOU ARE STARVING SEX WORKERS WHEN YOU DO THAT.
But hey, when have radfems ever given a fuck about the women they actively harm with their misguided efforts?
