Can someone with a severe personality disorder give consent? Or someone who had their integrity and self-esteem crushed by repeated sexual abuse while growing up? What about 18 year olds, can they fully appreciate the consequences participating in porn movies will have on their lives?
Also, to be honest, isn’t degradation sort of the point of porn? The contents of the hetero porn I’ve encountered and the fact that the female participants always are referred to as “sluts” makes it hard not to conclude that people get off to humiliation. Obviously, there’s a huge variation, but the mainstream porn that you can come across without even searching for it is very rough in my eyes.
I guess porn reflects people’s fantasies but I also think it affects their views on sex, especially when young people watch a lot of it. I think it makes guys feel inadequate size-wise and I think it inspires them to make certain demands on their partners. It’s heartbreaking to read letters to sex columns by young girls, describing how they’re made to do things that are painful or make them gag, asking for advice on how to make it more bearable.
I don’t have any moral objections to the concept of porn and I’m sure there are films out there that don’t make you feel like you’re watching rape or prostitution. Still… how would you feel if your daughter became a porn actress?

not directly related to the original topic, but anyway!
I agree with the age thing, 21 should be the youngest age to be considered for porn.

But people choose to be in porn (hetro and gay porn) men and women choose to star in porn to make money fast which is there decision. It's not sex slavery, it's greedy capitalism at work. I don't accept the logic that some people don't have a choice but to work in porn. It's just selfish capitalist greed, they want to make money fast and lots of it. This may have long term psychological impacts and then again it may not. Some people enter porn as very fucked up people in the first place and will do anything in porn to make money. WHich feeds the weirdos desires for extreme porn, the desire is there and it seems people are prepared to do it. Not saying it's right but then again capitalism isn't either.
