ethical porn

Feminist pornographer and sex educator Tristan Taormino spoke to Cosmopolitan about what the term feminist porn actually
Sex educator and radio host Tristan Taormino joins Abby and Marc to discuss "feminist porn" and how it is different from mainstream adult films.
The term "feminist porn" has been getting a lot of traction in the mainstream press lately, and I can't help but notice that my name often appears as a shining example of "women directors who make porn aimed at a female audience." Uh... I do?
I bothers me deeply when people assume that I have no morals because I make porn. I constantly evaluate and rethink the way in which I present my business and the way in which I talk about sex. Love, respect and empathy are my core values.
Allison Vivas is the woman running the show. Like me, she's only behind the scenes and not in front of the camera. Unlike me, she's a mom. I was curious to find out about the experiences of another woman on top in this male-dominated game.
What makes feminist porn different, I think, is a commitment to ethical standards. I collaborate with my stars to make sure that they feel empowered by the process; I make sure that they have a say in whom they have sex with and what kind of sex they want to have.
Is pornographic material inherently harmful to women and encouraging of violent behaviour in men? Or is it possible to be a socially conscious individual and still make, perform in, and consume pornography? I say yes.
