    Well there are men and women involved so I don't see why it would be a feminist issue, I'm sure the vast majority have no problem with it.

    I recall the booking talking about how it is degrading that men are cumming over women's bodies/ in mouths etc, as well as generally treating them like crap, it also said something about how anal is degrading for a woman.

    If you read about a lot of (female) porn star's time in the industry, you'll find out how badly many of them are treated.
    As a feminist, I'd say the majority of us hate the porn industry and how women are treated, not porn itself.

    Why do you feel sorry? It's their choice whether or not they do porn.

    Preach! I'm pretty left wing, and the only thing I truly hate is the way that the Tories are ****ing up society through extensive cutting for their own benefit, and the general inequality of people in society. Couldn't care about much else. If it doesn't affect me, I'm fine with it.

    I know it's their choice. It's just that a lot of female pornstars has been sexually abused in the past so that's why they joined porn in the first place.

    A lot of porn stars are humiliated and are shamed...They are also treated quite badly.
    But I am pro-sex workers so I don't see particularly anything "wrong" with being a pornstar.

    MY understanding it that the objectification of women and the exploitation of them is what feminists object to. Feminists are not arguing that women should all dress demurely and never be topless or nude in public.
