I’m a feminist stuck somewhere in the middle of the porn debate. I agree with anti-porn activists that mainstream pornography is dangerous and with pro-porn advocates that censoring porn contributes to sex-negativity. Sex itself is a pleasurable act, not a bad thing, and censoring porn implies that sex is shameful. Regardless of where I stand, porn is a form of Constitutionally protected free speech, which renders the debate moot. People are going to—and have a right to—make and watch porn. What matters is the type of porn we choose to watch.
