Why You Should Give Ethical Porn a Chance

Porn, it’s something a lot of people watch, even more so this past year, and it is a booming business. But the last few years, more and more people have voiced their concerns about the porn industry and famous porn sites for the treatment of their talent. In return, the term “ethical porn” started to get thrown around a lot more. While it’s still pretty new to a lot of people, it is definitely worth checking out.

Porn is a minefield of serious problematic issues. There are a whole bunch of stories of porn sites hosting videos without the consent of the people in those videos, not paying their performers a fair wage, or creating an unsafe work environment. Not to mention that conventional porn is often focused around the male gaze, with women being degraded, insulted, and violated.

In short: conventional porn has got some serious issues, so why not try ethical porn so that you don’t have to compromise your morals when getting it on?

What is Ethical Porn?

Ethical porn or feminist porn or fair trade porn is legally-made, consensual porn that respects the rights of performers, showing realistic depictions of sex with diverse body types, and isn’t centered around the male gaze. Sounds amazing, right? Yet, when you search for porn, the chances of ethical porn ending up in your search results are pretty slim, and a lot of the time, it isn’t free either. But no worries because we made a list of five ethical porn sites to visit when you’re feeling ~ in the mood ~
