After Adult

Anti-porn activists think they're helping people, but who are they really concerned about?

Why do we only seem to hear from ex-porn stars who have negative things to say about the industry? There's a *lot* to unpack around this topic, so we break it down into three broad categories: opposition for religious reasons, opposition for nonreligious ethical reasons, and Adrienne's personal least favorite, anti-porn feminism.

Rachel and Adrienne discuss porn addiction, drug use in the porn industry, STD/STI risk and the performer testing system, violence in porn, the passage of FOSTA/SESTA (see links below) and more.

Anti-porn organizations/websites we discuss:
- www.antipornography.org: use caution when visiting this one, because the late 90s Geocities vibes might just give you an aneurism if, like Adrienne, you can’t handle ugly websites.
- Fight the New Drug:  https://fightthenewdrug.org
- Jesus Loves Porn Stars/XXX Church:  https://www.xxxchurch.com/theindustry
- Shelley Lubben’s Pink Cross Foundation, which closed in 2016: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shelley_Lubben

Facts about The Herp:
-One in six Americans carries the herpes virus: https://www.cdc.gov/std/herpes/stdfact-herpes.htm
-Adam Ruins Everything: You probably have herpes, and that’s OK (This is a fantastic show, and the full episode is available on Netflix!): https://youtu.be/aU4VcOQzQm0

- FOSTA/SESTA’s effects on the porn industry and performers: https://www.freespeechcoalition.com/blog/2018/04/13/fosta-will-harm-porn-performers-but-not-how-you-think-ns-fw/
- Erika Lust’s YouTube channel, where she interviewed sex workers, was shut down/banned, likely due to FOSTA: https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/gy3gdb/youtube-banned-erica-lust-in-conversation-with-sex-workers
- Its wider impacts on internet communities: https://www.vox.com/culture/2018/4/13/17172762/fosta-sesta-backpage-230-internet-freedom
- How FOSTA/SESTA disproportionately impacts trans SWs, especially those of color: https://broadly.vice.com/en_us/article/ev8ayz/trans-sex-workers-on-life-under-fosta-sesta
