via Violet BlueThe ways in which we “come out” — or DON’T — say a lot about who we are, and how we are perceived. Responses paint a candid portrait of our family, friends and neighbors. Porn is not something many people openly talk about, often out of protection and privacy. Coming out can expose shame as much as it can reveal open-minded acceptance. Stories about the reactions from our family and friends, or the ways in which we guard our decisions through alias and discretion can present an honest look at what it’s like to work in the field of sexuality, within an industry so often misrepresented. While some denounce pornography as obscene, and others praise its associates brazen liberation, the actual accounts of what happens when we live with our choices off the set and IRL walk the line and offer a refreshingly honest look at the complexity of sexuality. I want to hear your story. I’m seeking submissions of personal narratives from porn performers, videographers, photographers, producers, directors, web producers, industry writers and reviewers, and anyone else who works in the field of pornography. Posts by family members of porn people, parents, children, siblings or even lovers will also […]
Still open for submissions. Let me know via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

I’m tired of being scared of HIV/AIDS, Herpes, and all other STDs. This shit is getting old. I want to touch and be touched without reservation, calculation of risk, and fear. I’m tired of hearing folks quietly whisper to me that they aren’t “clean”.
Clean VS Dirty….
“There has been a sort of moral panic – sometimes in Britain and in the U.S. especially – about the influence of pornography on sexual behaviours,” [Hald] says. “And although this study can’t claim to investigate cause and effect, it can still say that there are a lot of other factors that determine sexual behaviours, so maybe we should put the debate into a larger perspective instead of being just one-sided.”
