Pornography is one of the most lucrative industries in the entire world. Because of various industry practices, taboos, and other related factors, those on screen in many pornographic films are mistreated and deal with emotional and mental trauma, both while the camera is rolling and for years afterwards. On the surface, it may seem like there is no harm to enjoying porn — since it is all presented as being consensual and many performers appear to be enjoying the experience. But with little regulations in place to ensure that the filming environments are safe and that all those involved are actually consenting means that even sites that seem ‘legitimate’ can be ripe with examples of abuse and exploitation.

Many porn companies have an “every two-week” policy when it comes to STD testing, but inside looks have shown that it is based mainly on an honor system, and people who don’t keep up, or can’t afford this stipulation aren’t necessarily kept from getting work. This can put actors and actresses at a health risk, as they can feel the need to lie to ensure they continue to get work. (Fortune)
It is much easier for people to get away with exploitation and abuse in the porn trade because this industry is still considered taboo and practiced behind closed doors. There is a movement to create “ethical pornography”, with several directors and studios participating. This focuses on not shaming people in the sex industry but also protects their interests as people. The key to the ethical porn movement is that no one is taken advantage of at any stage of the process. (Ethical Porn)
