Soap box rant on anti porn issues

Its been suggested in recent years that my becoming more vocal about issues regarding porn is creating the illusion of me being some kind of political activist. I kind of like that label and embrace it knowing that anyone who has been in this business long enough has enough experience to impart some knowledge from all the years being in it and no other business Ive been in before this has afforded me such a close up look into knowing and understanding human beings than being in the business of peddling porn I will always be grateful to porn, especially all those (be they fans or passing consumers) for their support in providing me a living that brought me so far. So its with this in hindsight that I now arrive at that point where I have elevated my game and no longer just that guy who makes couples porn and Im even more grateful for the good folk behind UK Porn Podcast that have given me a nic elittle cosy corner to air these views as my own site dont want to hear this stuff…Er, keep it to the porn Terry, thats a good chap. People aint paying to hear this shit so er, go set up you own soapbox somewhere else .

Well no one has actually said that verbatim but its a hybrid of whats been said and suggested in recent years as I’ve gone on the war path with some and made new alliances with fellow crusaders even outside of the porn arena which resulted in my involvement with different projects that took me outside of but not too far away from the adult industry. What I’m trying to get at is all the recent attacks on porn has led mne to believe it is no the mere stuff of “fluff” as one esteemed porn producer puts it down to but a battle field for free speech. Yes you read that right BATTLEFIELD! An epic word to use but so appropriate given my recent arguments for being involved with an anti piracy campaign which some deem to be dubious. Ive considered it long and hard and arrived at the conclusion that if I ignored an opportunity to deal with this at an early stage tehn the creases will never be ironed out to develop it further to an industry wide recognisable and accepted platform to reduce piracy.. Lets face it, piracy is at its all time high with more people thinking they can get it for free so why bother pay? This is a dangerous thing because it sets the precedent of no return by creating a culture that wants and expects everything for free. One only has to take a look over at the off topic thread on the BGAFD to see the kind of thing Im up against with this mammoth thread where both sides of the fence argue their case just as convincingly that I will leave it up to you which side of the fence you choose to be on.

If youre a downloader in fear of getting “the dreaded letter” then inevitably you can call on these guys as they will see you as the poor innocent who got picked on by the big bad wolf: ME! BOO! Lets face it, if you were me paying for product you make your living off would you want me downloading your scenes for free from somewhere that had no right to do so giving it away for free?  Thats the kind of thing I’m up against all the time in this business and its madness when people justify their rights to it because its there for the taking. If you think this way then surely you will see my point in redressing this matter Then we have the anti porn/ misinformation press that really gets on my craw. Like this for example Porn gets the blame for girls low self esteem issues with regards to body image I can trash that argument straight away by saying that porn has embraced all kinds of stereotypes, body types, abilities or disabilities, sexual orientation and ethnicities and even quirks. If I was to point a big fat finger of blame then it would be at the entertainment, music, film and fashion industry but the biggest perpetrator of all this is the media in general. The same media that passes the blame onto porn which in itself is not original at all in that it mirrors by way of parody everything it sees in real life. Porn is honest. As for those anti porn campaigners like Gail Dines dont get me started. I think she deserves another entry entirely on her alone. She has made some comments that caught my attention and i actually stopped to consider her point and questioned if porn producer should have some responsibility in how it conveys itself to the buying public. She almost had me too until I bought her book and suddenly relaise that it was a clever academic approach at self marketing to package her typically tired and old feminazi views. i wont even use the word feminist because Im not even against feminists but feminazis who dont know what the hell they are talking about perpetuating half boiled arguments that damage freedom of speech and expression to further their own self serving agendas.

Lets not forget the obvious fact that while she derides porn that she makes a profitable living from it as well. You could say she is exploiting the very victims of porn addiction as well buying into her crap which I bought into as well for research purposes of course because i couldn’t chastise a worthy adversary if I didnt know what she was all about and as I started reading a few chapters in I was hoping to find out a good case against porn. I was disappointed as it just reinforced my opinion that the real bad people are the ones that tell you you shouldnt be doing things you not only enjoy but have every divine right on the planet to see if you so choose to. Power to the people. Pump ya fist and defend your wanking rights by always voting NO to censorship because ultimately that is where the anti censorship agenda begins Personally Im all porned out when it comes to debates but theres no need for me stop you from doing so. You see, when it comes to debates like the one below it makes you think that it is all very subjective and nothing changes because…Its subjective isnt it? So whats the point? You either love it or hate it but it seems the ones who hate it want to spoil your enjoyment by taking it away and thats what makes me mad!

However, I found the debate below an interesting reflection of my comments
