NEW HARM STORY! Ex porn performer Jessie Rogers shares how she got into porn, how harmful it was and why she left! ~~~~~~~~~~~~

JESSIE’S STORY:

I got into porn the day after my 18th birthday. Here’s how it happened…

A week before I turned 18, I was just scanning around the “jobs” section on Craigslist, not even looking for porn. I found an ad in the TV/film/video section that said “MAKE $20,000 – $30,000 A MONTH MODELING.” In the description it said nothing about porn or video work, they simply asked people to e-mail them a photo. Once I sent the agency a photo of myself, they got back to me instantly, asking when I could go see them. All they mentioned at the time was that they were looking for people to do “Playboy-style nudes.”

Once I got to the office to speak to them in person, we talked for hours, and the woman working there finally told me that she “basically booked girls for porn.” Then she handed me a sheet to circle the things that I was okay with doing. The only thing I circled was “solo.” She looked at it and said, “Well, the problem with this is that you won’t be able to make as much money as I proposed to you.” So I went on and circled “b/g” and “g/g,” which means boy/girl (me and a boy), and girl/girl (me and another girl). I didn’t circle anything else because I never intended to do anything else.

Every time I got interviewed by a company in the porn industry, my answers to the question “Why porn?” stayed relatively the same: “I love sex, so why not?” or “Getting paid for something I do anyway sounded like a dream job.” Etc. etc. The truth is that what draws people in is the quick money, especially for young girls coming out of high school. They may have some vague idea of what porn is like from having seen some of it, but in reality they have no clue what it actually is like to do it, until they get too deep into it.

That’s what happened to me. As embarrassed as I am to admit this now, I will humble myself and say that I was very naive when I first started in porn, and I believed all the things that people in the industry told me were true. I was so drawn to the money that I let myself believe all the lies that people fed me. I even believed my own lies that I told myself.

I am 20 years old now, and I retired from porn just a few months after I turned 19, so I didn’t do it for very long. However, it was long enough for me to finally see through all of the lies, and for the true colors of the “adult industry” to be exposed to me. Porn is not empowering, neither is it safe. But it did take quite a lot for me to face this and accept it. All of my plans to only do what I first agreed to changed after just a few months in the industry, after which I ended up jaded, disassociated, and brainwashed.

NEW REPORT: Gail Dines of Stop Porn Culture on their UK conference this past weekend!

[Independent] — If you turn on the television, flick through a magazine or look at billboards, you will see that porn has now become a blueprint for how the media represents women’s bodies. Whether it be Katy Perry writhing around almost naked in a music video, or Miley Cyrus “twerking” with a man almost twice her age (who seems to have a “blurred” understanding of sex), the images that bombard us daily look much like soft-core porn did a few decades ago.

Today there is almost no soft-core porn on the internet, because most of it has migrated into pop culture. What we are left with is a porn industry that is now so hard-core that even some of the big-name porn producers and directors are amazed at how far they can go.

Feminists from six countries convened in London this weekend for a Stop Porn Culture conference that focused on how porn culture shapes our ideas about sexuality, relationships, masculinity, femininity and intimacy. Recognizing that porn images have now been seamlessly woven into our pop culture, thanks mainly to the internet, speakers addressed the multiple harms of bringing up a generation of girls and boys on misogynist images.

One of the key issues discussed at the conference was the way porn fans are becoming increasingly desensitised and are looking for more hard-core content. According to porn director Mitchell Spinelli, fans are becoming “more demanding about wanting to see the more extreme stuff.”

Here’s another excellent article on @Belle_Knox that notes how porn is overall still oppressive to ALL WOMEN.

[The Week – Excerpt] – It’s notable, for instance, that the major media venues who are now airing Knox’s feminist editorial are only doing so because she’s a curious sexual tabloid spread. That women’s bodies are easily marketed is no strike against the patriarchy, and that a woman can get attention for her political views only after appealing to male sexual desire certainly doesn’t seem to indicate any serious move in the direction of equality.

But let’s leave aside whether this theoretically breaks the barriers of sexuality and focus on a side of porn that has gotten far less attention in this debate. What material good do women gain from the porn industry?

At the performer-level, porn is a notoriously treacherous place to make a career. While female performers might make more than their male counterparts, most of them just don’t get paid that well, thanks in part to the rise of piracy, cam sites, and the glut of material online. And dwindling profits mean not only pay cuts for performers, but an increased willingness to jockey to meet the demands of a mostly male audience. This competition has two major negative outcomes for Knox’s anti-patriarchal project.

First, it means that male consumers dictate the terms of what’s depicted. As a result, male desire impacts the work and health of performers. For example, a 2012 study found that porn performers in LA had higher rates of STIs than prostitutes working in Nevada; the study authors chalked the prevalence of infections up to the reluctance of studios to enforce condom use because visible condoms aren’t arousing. In other words, the industry drive to respond to male sexual desire could well be the reason performers like Knox are in danger of contracting life-threatening illnesses like HIV. Is this what bucking the patriarchy looks like?

Good news! After unsuccessfully trying to segregate porn, Vine is no longer allowing it! Yay anti-porn team! 🙂

Note: Documentary nudity and clothed sexually suggestive content is still allowed, but this is still a significant step in the right direction. 🙂

[Digital Trends] – Possibly wary of becoming the go-to site for fans of six-second videos featuring performing genitalia, Vine has moved to ban porn from its service.

“As we’ve watched the community and your creativity grow and evolve, we’ve found that there’s a very small percentage of videos that are not a good fit for our community,” the Vine team said in a roundabout way on its blog Thursday. But then it all becomes perfectly clear: “So we’re making an update to our Rules and Terms of Service to prohibit explicit sexual content.”

Vine said that “more than 99 percent” of users won’t notice anything different, but for the others, there’s likely to be a decreasing amount of pornographic material to peruse in the coming days, weeks and months.

Is it acceptable to watch porn on a plane? We say NO, it is not acceptable to watch porn in ANY public space. Please read the story below of one woman’s encounter with a fellow passenger who was watching porn next to her on a plane and then let us know what YOU think. Thanks! 🙂

[USA Today] — The pornographic images Elizabeth Saft recently glimpsed on her seatmate’s cellphone while she was flying from Sacramento to Minneapolis on Delta Air Lines can’t be described here.

“I told him to stop it,” says Saft, a clinical psychologist from Davis, Calif. “To which he responded: ‘Just don’t look!'”

She complained to a flight attendant, who relocated her to an open middle seat. “Needless to say, this was extremely distressing, and profoundly unfair to me,” she adds. “I believe the man should have been moved. I believe his behavior was criminal.”

P.S. Here’s a sad tale of a 16 year old who ended up next to a man watching porn on a plane for FOUR HOURS. Again, we encourage everyone to SPEAK UP and just say NO to anyone watching porn on planes!
