So what's the most popular porn site on the planet?
So I'm not saying that women always go into porn out of desperation; I'm not saying that women in porn are always victims; I'm not saying that choosing to go into porn when it pays you an hour and that's way more than you'd be getting paid elsewhere is in any way an irrational choice. I don't think every dude who has ever gone to a strip club or paid for sex is an irredeemable shithole.
I am saying that I've walked down the street in Phnom Penh and seen tons of white American and European men negotiating with Cambodian men for the sexual services of Cambodian women, often minors; I've seen my male travel companion offered "whatever you want – girl, boy, how old? I do think men who get off not just on sex but on exploitation are irredeemable shitholes, though.
Do you start the webcam session by asking, "18/f/NY wanna cyber? And they're consuming porn that is produced at bargain-basement prices by women who have significantly less financial autonomy than many American and western European women.
At the same time, there's plenty of porn out there that involves American and western European women, or actresses who have greater bargaining power and are paid much higher wages.
I wonder how much of the thrill, for some men, involves the potential for exploitation – the power that comes from being able to pay a woman to do something for you, on your terms, that she might not do if she had a broader range of options. "; I've seen women trailing a few feet behind solo white dudes, the dude not even looking at her.
That isn't to say that women only do porn because they don't have options – I'm hesitant to write about this stuff because there are such established feminist camps here, and the conversations tend to recycle the same old arguments. Seeing that, I have never in my life had such a visceral, ragey reaction to strangers; I have never shot so many filthy looks at men I don't know; I had never before seriously thought to myself, "I fucking HATE men." Until I saw all those white men in Cambodia. I am certainly not under the impression that every woman in a lower-income country is doing sex work out of pure desperation, or doesn't want to be doing what she's doing.Supporting the rights of workers and making efforts to de-stigmatise sex work doesn't have to be at odds with recognising that porn and other sex industries will of course replay and often magnify gender, racial and other inequalities; given that those industries are less in the mainstream eye and are categorised as vices, it's not surprising that some of the worst gender, racial and national arrogances can come into pretty clear view.So with that said, what seems to be the draw here is the power aspect, not the "hey naked girls" aspect.The fact that 2.5% of the billion people on the internet are using Live Jasmin each month is pretty extraordinary. At -/hour with no benefits, it doesn't pay enough for American women… Most of the foreign women do it without the knowledge of their friends and family and only do it for Americans so that acquaintances in their homeland won't hear about it.I am apparently not a very savvy consumer of internet porn, because I've never heard of Live And I am certainly far from anti-pornography; if you want to get naked on your webcam/watch people get naked on their webcams, fantastic, enjoy yourself. Obviously, this isn't a one-way exploitation street – it's not just western men (or just men generally) who are consuming internet porn, and it's not just south-east Asian and eastern European women who are in porn.
