Description

It’s 2019. Lots has changed. But the porn industry is still home to misogyny, violence and a distinctly-male gaze.

Porn is the third most downloaded content every day from the web. Porn sites receive more regular traffic than Netflix, Amazon, & Twitter combined each month. It is *the* largest part of the internet.

It’s no surprise then, that most young people get their sex education from porn, watching videos as early as 11 years old. Not great considering the wealth of revenge porn, highly violent scenes, and lack of diversity.

But it's not all bad. Porn can be cinematic. Special. Ethical.

Enter Erika Lust: the adult filmmaker on a mission to shake up the porn industry. Her films are feminist, beautifully shot and show equality in pleasure. As she describes it, “the sex can stay dirty, but the values have to be clean.”

Join Emily Sheffield, CEO and founder of #ThisMuchIKnow News, as she discusses with Erika the issues surrounding porn, feminism and consent. With drinks and nibbles!
