(TW/CW: This episode contains references to sexual abuse of adults and children. Please listen with caution and take care of yourself if it feels too heavy.)
Our guest is Gustavo Turner, a writer and photographer, as well as news editor for XBIZ, an adult industry trade publication. In this episode, Gustavo helps us unpack the fallout from the mounting “warn on porn” over the last few weeks, starting with the New York Times op-ed which led to Pornhub losing its payment processing capabilities. Who's next on the list of porn sites to be attacked? We also discuss the wider issue of online content moderation, attacks on section 230, and social media censorship.
