Let’s Talk About Porn

With Sociology being one of my majors at uni we cover a lot of information about gender and sexuality. And along with that comes studying some aspects of porn. My opinion of porn depends on what is being discussed. There is no denying that there is so much money surrounding porn, yet it is available for free online. The marketing behind it in amazing. People are still willing to pay for something that they can view for free. The porn industry is one of the largest in the entertainment sector. I was once told in a media class that the internet was made for porn and that over 90% of websites online are for porn of some sort or another.

Once again on one of my YouTube black hole endeavors I stumbled across ex-porn star Channon Rose’s channel. Due to Sociology that I’ve read a lot of information on porn, the majority of them being on how it is detrimental to women. That porn is dangerous, creates unrealistic expectations for how women should look and act.

So with all that in mind, along with what I know about the expectations porn places of people, Channon Rose raises some interesting points. Though the most interesting one I took away from watching a few of her videos was to not do porn. Despite the extraordinary life it gave her, she absolutely rejects any idea of doing so. She does that encourage anyone to do so.

 

 

I found that so interesting to hear an ex-porn star to speak so openly and not be like ‘oh yeah it was my choice and it was great and so empowering. 10/10 would do again.’

 

 

Channon also has a book that I hope to read, I find people’s stories so interesting, they are my favourite type of book to read by far.

I don’t judge anyone that does chose to do porn, I decided to blog about this because I like to discuss topics that are hard to talk about. The taboo issues are often the most important ones that need to be spoken about in my opinion. I would recommend anyone who is interested in personal experiences or studying gender and sexuality to have a look at Channon’s channel.
