This is not a chicken and the egg problem, some people would have you believe, that industry doesn't magically improve just because we speak in a more kind manner about it in polite society.

At the end of the day, it's people being paid to share the most intimate thing you can do with another human being to the entire world forever with horrifying hidden costs that directly harm other human beings. Child trafficking, countless stories of actors being pressured to continue filming scenes they no longer wish to film, and of course all the countless ex-porn actors who truly regret participating in and normalizing the very industry that harmed them.

There are zero issues with going around being honest with each other, especially to children about how cruel and evil this industry really is, let alone the cost of putting something sacred out there forever they can never put back in the bottle.


I like speaking the truth even though it gets me into trouble.
