And so it begins…

Posted on April 30, 2014

The Ethical Porn Partnership is in the process of finalising its board in the next few weeks and will announce names here soon. The board comprises experts and professionals from a plethora of industries, unified by a belief in responsible business, better consumer choice, and consensual adult liberty.

The board’s first duty is to approve EPP’s Code of Ethics. It’s important to say that many adult content producers are already adhering to high standards of care of performers and quality of content, but the EPP wants to help formulate an industry-wide ‘best practise’, for producers, performers and viewers alike. If food and fashion can be made to high ethical standards, so can porn.

 

Partly inspired by the Free Speech Coalition’s code, principles will cover:

 

-      prioritising health and safety of performers, including emotional and psychological, as well as physical health

-      rates for the job – what’s fair to pay performers under what circumstances?

-      creating great consumer resources, such as a ‘is it legal to view?’ guide

-      supporting the best possible sex education for young people

-      better labelling of content so consumers know what they’re actually selecting when they buy clips and content online

-      encouraging more creativity in adult content production, including alternative ways of tagging content for example, which    will challenge conventions around gender, power relations and sexual orientation

-       championing and supporting tech, marketing and funding enterprise amongst independent content producers

    love what you are trying to do. i’m interested in supporting your efforts, if I may. i’m a relatively well-known, published clinician and advocate for sexual freedoms. initiatives like this can healthily push back at the arguments that porn is inherently unhealthy, objectifying, addictive or destructive..

    cheers.
