Porn is what you make of it, and a lot of it comes down to "chicken or the egg" sort of questions. I was in two porno films myself as a young man,
and went on to work in sales and distribution for a number of years. There is certainly a dark side to it, but there is also a righteous side too. For
one thing, it holds the frontier of freedom of expression back against the tide of despotism.
If you are worried about the men and women who are willing "victims" of the industry, then ask yourself this. What would they be resorting to if
they didn't have the porn industry? They would be working back rooms at seedy strip clubs and walking the streets. Far more dangerous and
degrading, and for less money. The problem is not the porn, but the socio-economic conditions which drive people into the industry who otherwise would
not be there. Don't go putting the cart in front of the horse. Keep in mind too, that many of the performers are not victims at all, and actually do
enjoy the life.
As far pornography from a "users" standpoint, That is really none of anyone elses business why I would choose to view porn, or who I choose to view
it with. And it has nothing to do with the choices or the path that led the performers to my screen.
