Are people hypocritical and too quick to rush to judgement about porn? And do those opinions affect how people vote on porn-related laws, like Measure B, which requires condoms to be worn in porn in LA County. Porn is such an integral part of modern sexuality-- are there healthy ways to integrate porn into relationships, for example, ways that actually foster communication about desires and needs between partners? Lastly, hentai (erotic animation) has become massively popular. Is the rise of this super-form of sexual fantasy a good thing, especially if it means more extreme acts could be filmed but not portrayed by actual human beings?
Ana Kasparian (Host, The Point and Co-host of The Young Turks) lead this weeks panel to discuss these issues and more with Kevin Pereira (Host, Pointless Podcast and Former Host of Attack of the Show), Shira Tarrant (Professor of Gender and Sexuality at CSU Long Beach) and Nina Hartley (Legendary adult film actress and author). Special thanks to Carol Queen of the Center for Sex & Culture for sending in a point.
