An Interview with Erika Lust on Crowdsourcing Feminist Porn

An Interview with Erika Lust on Crowdsourcing Feminist Porn | Sex Work | Scoop.it
"Even though I love coming up with my own scenarios for films, it feels way more communal and diverse to let people tell me their erotic visions. Ordinary people have extraordinary stories to tell, and they are a joy to shoot."
Gracie Passette's insight:

Vote now for the 2015 Feminist Celebrity of the Year

Vote now for the 2015 Feminist Celebrity of the Year | Sex Work | Scoop.it
The Ms. Foundation for Women celebrates all feminists all year long. Women and men who believe in social, economic and political equality are working every day to change the conversation and build a more equal society for ALL genders. Their work makes all the difference.
In 2014 we teamed up with Cosmopolitan.com for our first EVER Feminist Celebrity of the Year survey. You voted and we recognized those who used their impact, influence and notoriety to promote true equality.  These celebrities not only publicly identified as feminists but worked to change the national and international dialogue around diversity, inclusiveness and intersectionality.

Why Do (Some) Feminists Struggle With The Notion Of Sex Work?

Why Do (Some) Feminists Struggle With The Notion Of Sex Work? | Sex Work | Scoop.it

Certainly not all feminists embrace sex work, but the issue is very much one of feminism. Recently, I found this conversation at Tumblr which illustrates a classic feminist conversation about sex work.

Gracie Passette's insight:

Since both parties confessed to appreciating education, I schooled them.

Prostitution Cannot Be Squared with Human Rights or the Equality of Women

Prostitution Cannot Be Squared with Human Rights or the Equality of Women | Sex Work | Scoop.it

Prostitution exists because inequality exists.   At the same time, prostitution embeds into society the very inequality it feeds on; thus perpetuating the subordination of women. 

 

For prostitution to exist as a monetary exchange, women must be commodified as products in the stream of commerce.  In commercial terms, I have a problem with both supply (too many women live in poverty) and demand (too many men believe they have a right to sexual access).  Both facts require that women be subordinate.  That is why the radical feminist position on prostitution is abolition.  Abolition is the only way to address the root cause of prostitution i.e. personal and structural inequality.  We must both improve the lives of women around the world so that they can truly exercise choice and independence and teach men to understand that sexual access is not a right.

Gracie Passette's insight:

Continuing the Cato debate; this is the third entry.

Just Don’t Call It Slut-Shaming: A Feminist Guide to Silencing Sex Workers

Just Don’t Call It Slut-Shaming: A Feminist Guide to Silencing Sex Workers | Sex Work | Scoop.it

The feminist movement really is in a pickle these days. It used to be a given that things like prostitution, pornography and stripping were bad, but nowadays there’s some resistance to these time-honoured notions. Women are increasingly coming out as sex workers and demanding rights. As feminists seek to shut down strip bars and criminalise clients, those women are complaining not just that they’ll lose their livelihood, but that they’ll be at increased risk of abuse and violence if their industries go underground! You can’t let such trivial concerns get in the way of your crusade, so below are some handy tips for discrediting these pesky meddlers.

Remember: being an actual sex worker doesn’t entitle her to speak about sex work!...
