The Oxymoron of Ethical Porn via End Sexual Exploitation

The Oxymoron of Ethical Porn via End Sexual Exploitation

As much as I criticize conservative Christians and conservative “pro family values” groups on this blog, I have to say I’ve actually seen people who identify as ex-Christian or “progressive” Christians who actually sit around defending porn, and one way they do this is to argue that there is such a thing as “ethically produced” porn, and that “ethically produced” porn is morally acceptable.

As much as conservatives get a few things wrong, the progressives and liberals also get things wrong. This is one of those things.

Excerpts:

As porn use and production become more rampant than ever, so do the justifications of the exploitative behavior. A new wave of so-called “ethical” porn has emerged to ease the consciences of the porn viewing community. Liz Walker (Link): has written an analysis of the many fallacies this theory poses.

First, there is the question of self-created porn. While this is an increasing trend due to the rise of smartphones, self-creation does not imply consent the way many assume.

Walker first points out that just as in mainstream pornography, the actors may face external pressure to create this content.

Another main concern she addresses is that many home videos are recorded and or distributed without a party’s knowledge, such as cases featuring ‘revenge porn’.

Walker then highlights that the claim of being ethical hangs on users paying for the content. The titles on several “ethical” porn sites still feature themes of sex with minors, incest, and workplace sexual harassment. While actors may be getting fair pay, assuming they are aware of its distribution, their creations are no more ethical or moral than that of hardcore mainstream producers.

…Perhaps most importantly, is that no creation of pornography, regardless of consent or content, can really be considered ethical as it increases demand for sex trafficking.

This is because sex trafficking victims are used as performers in pornography, are trained through pornography exposure, and are used for traffickers to act out what they have witnessed in pornography.
