Stop Porn Culture Saturday March 15th 2014

Everyone in the UK Adult business should be aware of this event. It is the day anti porners come out and spout their rhetoric about porn with the idea of banning it.

I have no problem with people not liking porn and like anything i don’t like it can be easily avoided, but where I take deep offence is with the lies and general mistruths quoted to gain followers to their cause. Like many other organisations that impose their will by using porn as an agenda (ISP filters and ATVOD) the Stop Porn Culture brigade claim they are challenging the porn industry and the harmful culture it perpetuates.

As far as I see it , its an attack on my very way of life. I make a living through producing sexually explicit content known to these people as pornography and these people are trying to interfere with my lifestyle choice whereas I dont interfere with theirs. That makes me want to come out and fight and normally I’m a loving peaceful kind of man with a live and let live sensibility.

The chief whip in all this is Gail Dines who I first heard of a couple years ago via podcasts and YouTube clips. I felt she said a few comments that resonated with me enough to buy her book and read it. It occurred to me very quickly that her real passion isnt just stopping the porn industry at all. She really truly hates it with a passion and I would be bold enough to add, is making a good living from porn by trying to burn it down. These events are perfect for selling her book. the whole thing is a big sales marketing exercise. This is how she makes her living and  bought into it. I was really disappointed but I didnt regret it because, if I didnt read it i wouldn’t have arrived at this conclusion. Like any book that becomes unbelievable, I stopped reading after I decided the first few lies dictated the way the book was going. To me, Gail Dines is not a feminist. Shes a femi-nazi.

As for stopping porn culture. Realistically, it will never happen. Governments can legislate, control all they want. Put the likes of me out of business but they will never EVER stop the Niagra of filthy porn getting to the people. Why? Because the people want it and if the people want something there will always be a way to facilitate them getting it. If theyre not buying it they will be making it. Thats how I started in the business. I made movies. I  sold them. I paid people to be in them. They made money. The people are using all forms of technology to share and make pornographic content and for the mot part its not done for monetary gain but the problem with saturation is because they are doing it and giving it away because it was made from pleasure. This is the boom that has spilled out of the internet that is referred to as “porn culture”

In fact, Gail (and the SPC movement) do not have the scope of understanding or emotional distance from their own bias to really deal with this issue effectively. They have forgotten the one thing they are imposing on that goes against them straightaway:

Freedom of choice.

They are the infringers of that freedom of choice.

The porn business like many other aspects to it is part of a bigger collective of the sex business but is also very different in that it is run by people who are  self regulating their business, making money and for the most part, paying their taxes.

This is what Ms Dines and her supporters are  using lies to taint us with. Lies like  the porn industry facilitates human trafficking. This would be considered libellous if she targetted any company by name. These lies are also perpetuated by that other organisation of scaremongerers; Mumsnet. One of the first few comments I read from an irate mother was: “girls are RAPED into the porn industry” Raped and porn industry shouldnt even be used in the same breath as that is to imply it is legal. I could come out with more examples like this  and go into the back stabbing skullduggery going on in the adult business  as various people  fighting to control the business by switching side to side with allies and enemies thinking they will benefit when the smoke clears by monopolising the porn business.

In short this is all about control

You would think that all these people trying to rein the porn business in would have some dialogue with key players in it to reach an amenable solution but the truth is they are using it as a platform to further their own agendas. So with this in mind I will use it to further my agenda by fighting them back by opposing an challenging their views and lies.

If the public have created a porn culture thats because the peope have chosen to. It was never influenced by the porn business which is a miniscule thing compared to all the free stuff being self produced via social networks and affiliations going on between people that satellite the periphery of the adult business.

Before pointing fingers at the porn business, they should look first to the fashion, music and entertianment industry. If we’re going down then the rest of the world is coming, kicking and screaming with us. The fact is, porn is super cool because it represents  a sense of freedom that we have strived for through the blood, sweat and tears of our parents and their parents before them. Porn is on the forefront of freedom with sexual expression. There is no one without the other. It is that ideal that is under attack by  Gail Dines and the SPC who are the modern equivalent of the sex police.

The reason I’m attending the Stop Porn Culture event is to be part of a wider voice to show unity and oppose the lies  that we are forced by some omnipresent evil corporation to do what we have already chosen to do with our lives.  I am sure the anti porn brigade can find examples of girls who have regretted being in this business and to be fair, it can also be put down on society for why girls feel shameful about what they have done with their constant judgement and beating of the morality stick. The psychological damage is just as bad as what they accuse the porn business of if not worse.

I would be all for working together and discussing with members of parliament and indeed the SPC, social workers and whoever in mind how we can protect children from porn. Us producers have children and family lives too. Warring among ourselves with words just creates fierce divide with those who are just hot on the topic of the sex rather than how we can practically  dealing with it in the modern  world environment.

The reason the SPC are left to run riot with colourful stories is simply because they are not opposed by any vice of resistance. Opposition is not enough. If anyone wants to deal with this properly it will have to be done sensibly by way of dialogue. Not name calling or degrading sx workers for their morals and lifestyle choice byby censorship and other forms of restriction. If we can meet the demand of those with religions and cultures different from our own why cant this be extended to those who work in the sex trade?

Half the problems in the adult business could be remedied if there was a broader mind of thinking and tolerance towards it. The only way we can get that word out on the day will be peacefully with the hope that people can keep their emotions calm so we can achieve some harmony arising to a better outcome through informative dialogue.

All too often I see these porn debates end as they had started with no solution. I’m not expecting a solution on the day but what I would like to see is those whose lifestyles it affects defend those choices by stating to these people they are happy with their chosen vocations be they porn star, glamour model, stripper, escort or even fans, clients, pro supporters of free speech and civil liberties whatever sexual orientation you are.

Stop Porn Culture needs to recognise that its banning and censorship aims are likely to force things more underground where it will do more harm than good.
