Pornography has been around since the dawn of time and will always be around. That is something we can not change. However what has happened, the industry through its desire to make money (and some have said become a little to greedy) has accomplished three things that have made it so intensifying like no other time in our history. First, it is easily and readily available. In the past, a person had to go to a store to buy a nudie magazine to obtain it. Nowadays, at the click of your finger you can find it all over the internet, on your computer, laptop, I pad, smartphone, video games and anything digital. You can watch it while your driving, when your significant other isn’t looking, anytime of day and practically anywhere.
Second, it is easily affordable. Again, way back when in the day you had to purchase a magazine, at least it cost you a few bucks. In the age of the internet it is free. It doesn’t matter if it is hard core, soft core, it is free!
Third, you can do it without anyone finding out(Anonymously). Nobody is there to track you-look over your shoulder, and bother you. In fact you can even by a privacy screen so you can watch it in public.
SO, HOW DID WE GET TO THIS POINT?
In order to answer the question, we turned to porns sources and we asked, “Who benefits from porn?”
Here in lies you answer.
- Photographers and video folks who film the shoot
- Editors who edit it
- Booking agency who books the model
- Web developer who develops the site
- Browser who collects from the ads put on the site
- Credit card companies for payment/banks
- Host who hosts the site
- Other websites that cross promote it
- Make up artist who puts the make up on the model
- Models themselves
- Distributors who distribute the tape
- Lawyers who make the contracts and fight for free speech
- The vendors who distribute sex toys
- Plastic Surgeons
- Medical Doctors who treat the porn actors
- The Psychiatrists who treat an addiction
- Therapists who counsel those on too much use and its effects on the family
- Hotels who offer it
- Services that distribute it like cablevision, optonline, comcast
- The Conventions that sell it -who by the way sell it under the name of sex and love.
- Any others that effect the pornographic shoot.
It has been indeed been promoted by a capitalistic state. The money that has been made has exceeded revenues far beyond any industry. In fact, Porn Hub launched a campaign on Indiegogo during the summer of 2015 to make porn in space. It had 1,388 backers and raised a total revenue of 236,086.
The point being is that porn is profitable and all of the groups mentioned above have become loosley tied to one another. What we mean by this is that they have coalesced with one another and have influence over politicians, laws and the powerful. When many groups stand to make money (off of one another like those in the porn) they mirror one another and unify as one force to propel their influences over laws, politicians, and the the powerful. We call this the process of collectifying. Websters dictionary defines the word collective as “:denoting a number of persons or things considered as one group or whole flock is a collective word.” The process of “collectifying” leaves those individuals an advocates that understand pornography hurts with little to spare. As in the words of Doreen Finkle our CEO, “It comes at you whether you like it or not.”
So with just about half of the capitalistic society making money on pornography, “What can be so bad about it?”
