Ethical Porn: How it works!

There is a sudden growth of a new philosophy called ‘ethical porn’. According to Dr David Ley’s – a clinical psychologist in Albuquerque, New Mexico; AASECT certified sex therapist and supervisor, and executive director of New Mexico Solutions “In terms of production, ethical porn is a media where the performers are paid a fair wage for their work, treated with dignity and respect, not expected to engage in acts against their will, and where sexuality is recognized as a diverse, individual experience. I equate it to fair-trade coffee—when I buy coffee knowing that the farmers weren’t slaves, I enjoy it without guilt and shame. Ethical porn also represents the wide diversity of sexual experiences and desires, from LGBT porn, to feminist-focused porn, to porn involving a wide mix of body types. Ethical porn can be as hot and hard-core as any other material, but you can watch knowing the performers are engaging in behaviours they enjoy, from a place of consent. Much ethical porn, but not all, is currently produced by women, who are often themselves performers.”

This statement suggests that porn is ethical on the following basis:

  1. The performers are paid a fair and standardized wage
  2. The performers will be treated with respect and dignity as they practise their profession

Seriously?

This is not enough reason for the act they perform to be ethical. Paying the performers a fair wage and treating them with respect does not solve these problems.

  1. “Excessive or problematic engagement in sex, which has been termed compulsive sexual behaviour (CSB), hypersexuality disorder or sexual addiction, is a relatively common clinical entity that may carry significant mental and physical health consequences [1].” How can the mental and physical consequences be eliminated from performers who willingly sing up to act the videos? Having sex is not an act that should be mechanical or induced frequently due to its psychological effect. Even though the performers are willing to engage in such acts they cannot subjugate the emotional difficulty they get into while having sex but struggling to keep their emotions out.
  2. Those who view pornography have diminishing interest in their partners (spouse) 

Porn cannot be ethical

  1. Pornography most times involves the coming together of a man and a woman who are not married to engage in sexual activities. According to the scriptures, this is against the will of God and even damaging to the body of the people involved. 1 Thess. 4:3-4, 1 Corinthians 6:18-19 – Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body.  Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own
  2. If the people engaged in the pornographic video shoot are married, why would you put out the video of your wife for the whole world to see? And as a woman what would be your joy for the privacy of your husband to be made public. It is totally degrading for such  act to be done. There is no way the standard of ‘dignity & respect’ according to Dr David can be met. There is no culture in which exposing the nakedness of your spouse is acceptable.
  3. If the performers are lesbians or gays, that is abominable. It is a dereliction of the natural order of things and a violation of biological laws. The man does not naturally get attracted to another man, this is usually an intentionally cultivated habit facilitated by demons. See what the bible says. Lev. 18:22-23,“Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable. Do not have sexual relations with an animal and defile yourself with it. A woman must not present herself to an animal to have sexual relations with it; that is a perversion.”
  4. A married who watches pornography frequently will begin to compare his wife with performers he sees in the videos, especially when the performers have some different features. Same with the wife she might begin to complain about the quality of sex offered by her husband based on the standard of the pornstars. This will cause a huge problem in a marriage.
  5. The single ones can never satisfy themselves after watching porn performance. This would either, engage in rape illicit sex, rape of someone close by, visit a brothel or masturbate.
So how can porn ever be ethical? Please tell us, share this post if you agree with us.
