What does the phrase ethical pornography mean to you?

There has been a lot of talk around the blog sphere about what makes something ethical pornography (or feminist pornography). Some examples:

This post today by Shanna Katz link
This series of interviews on the topic: link by Garnet Joyce
Another series of interview done by Danny Wylde can be found here: link

To get an idea of why this is important thing to discuss; compare someone like Tristan Taormino link to an unethical, abusive, and downright evil individual like “Khan Tusion”. Trigger warning for violence against women; don’t click this link if your faith in humanity is weak: link


I think it is an interesting topic. So what makes something ethical pornography? What makes one an ethical porn consumer? Discuss.

To my mind ethical pornography is completely safe, sane and concensual same as BDSM actually. Now the scenes depicted can be crazy and imitate non-consent but the actors should be consenting and of an age where they can legally consent. No one should feel pressured or threatened into performing sex acts regardless of whether there is a camera in the room or not. (BDSM fully discussed scenes aside)

I try to be an ethical consumer in that if I know the actresses or actors are being mistreated or report unethical practices. I don't like that actors are expected to put their lives at risk by not using condoms or being told to suck a cock that has been in their asses...ass to vagina is also a turn off for me. I realize it's 'industry standard' but it shouldn't be, nor should people be given the idea that spit lubricant is perfectly ok and all you need for anal sex. I would love to see a porn that shows safer sex practices and lube being used...just once ya know?

I could not have said it better myself. I agree entirely.
