I saw this interview with Sasha Grey (porn actress) on Tyra. They made porn seem way worse than prostitution.

Anyways, Sasha Grey had an attitude where she was fine with her job, it was her choice, she's never had to do anything she doesn't want to do, etc. She said in the beginning she has never been sexually abused.

But she was attacked, saying that she's nothing more than a prostitute, what she is doing is wrong, she should do some "soul searching", she has been sexually abused, etc.

So the point of this thread is this: Is it wrong to be an actress/actor in porn?

Also, here is the interview (no actual pornography/nudity shown):

Some arguing comes in at 11:00, at 15:00 she makes her own video talking about her experience on the show. If you watch any part of the video, you should watch that.

Yeah I saw that too, it annoyed me that Tyra (and everyone else) kept attacking her, and couldn't get past the fact that it's what she wants to do.

I don't know, sometimes she seems intelligent. Sometimes.

Exactly. Plus, if you watch the end of the video, she talks about some kind of fucked up shit the show did with her.

People can do what they want with their bodies. IMHO, prostitution should be legal/regulated, anyways, so that argument doesn't really bother me much. I read a Rolling Stone interview with Sasha Grey, though, and I think she's a stuck up bitch.
Quote by Kensai
Forget about her, she seems complicated. Who wants a girl who answers in riddles? I'm not the fucking sfinx.

I don't see why people have such a big problem with the people in the porn industry. They're just trying to make a living like everyone else. Just because they may enjoy their job more doesn't make them bad people.

Porn stars take up a lot of precautionary measures before and after filming, as opposed to prostitutes. Yeah, maybe it's not the most idealistic profession, but there's a certain amount of pride and professionalism put into it....

Plus, the chicks are pretty fucking hot.

Never been a fan of Tyra Banks. She has this attitude about her that is all high and mighty. She's been a model, who gives a ****. She has a talk show, good job. She's basically a model form of Dr. Phil. She needs to keep her mouth shut and just model. Or stop. I know it's all about ratings, but I just hate Tyra Banks.

Nothing constitutes a "I'm better than you, I'm more knowledgeable" attitude towards someone YOU bring on a show. So yeah, **** Tyra banks.
#16
I don't see how it's wrong (biased opinion :p. But I don't see why prostitution is illegal either .
#17
Sasha Grey is pretty good at porn tbh.


Its obvious that show was aired purely for ratings. IRL Trolls FTL.
#18
I don't think there's anything wrong with being in porn, as long as the person does it by choice (and is of legal age, yada yada).
#20
Wow, Tyra. I'd rather be a porn star and have people CHOOSE to watch my show/videos rather than be a washed up model/tv show host whose main viewer demographic is people chained to chairs being tortured to death. What a bitch. She wishes she had that many fans.
#21
I like how this bitch is talking about her sending bad messages through her films. Like porn movies are really trying to influence the kids.

Tyra Banks is a much bigger ***** than Sasha Grey, not a ***** in the sense of using her vagina alot, but a worse kind of *****, an attention *****.

That's a trick question, man. You can't say that anything is wrong, nowadays, without being flamed for it.
Nope, no sig here.

So say someone who is under the legal age (say 16 for the sake of this perspective) is willing to consent to becoming a nude model under a professional photographer, distributor, etc.

What would make that wrong when it's alright for someone a couple years older to do the same thing?

Edit: This isn't specifically directed at you, I'd just like to hear some opinions on it.

I do think that pornography is like prostitution. You get paid to have sex, only that in front of a camera though I don't have anything against it. If you aren't bothered by being a porn actor or a prostitute, good for you. I'm not going to judge you as a person about it.

Every job is self-prostitution in some way or another, and the pious hypocrisy of talk show hosts serves only to garnish viewers seeking entertainment, boosting the ratings and subsequently profits of the broadcasting and production companies.

I'd like to say that this double standard was the sole province of the entertainment industry, but if you read any newspaper or recently-published book, you will come to realise that every published artist and writer is essentially a whore for their own little crowd of deniers.

Re-watching the video, that really pissed me off when they talk to her boyfriend, who is 30, and Tyra says something like "Doesn't that sound a little strange to you", and you can here the audience scowl. What does that have to do with Sasha being a pornstar!? Tyra is just trying to get everyone on her side.

After very, very, extensive research into Sasha Grey and a short rest I can conclude that there is nothing wrong with her profession.

The legal age to be in porn is 18 (in this country, anyway).

The fact that they're aren't of legal age makes it wrong. Not necessarily "wrong" in a moral sense - that's up to individuals to decide - just "wrong" in that it's illegal. People should not partake in illegal activities.

If you're asking my opinion, I agree that people under the age of 18 should not be in pornographic images. Then we have "what constitutes porn?" and all these other questions...

Well, kids haven't exactly gone through the cognitive development that adults have, and their choices could be harmful to them, if we gave them complete freedom to make those decisions. Obviously if a girl who is 10 is posting porn videos on the internet, some dangerous things can happen to her. It would be very dangerous if we allowed 10 year olds to prostitue themselves and act in porn, because it becomes much easier for them to be sexually abused and taken advantage of. I know you said 16, but we define the age for a person to become a porn actress at an objective day because it is easier to manage in terms of law. Of course there is no real distinction between a girl who is 17.99999 years old and when she turns 18. But there has to be some point to make a legal distinction. People will always argue whether it should be 18, 16, 21, etc.

It's not exactly the same. They're really getting paid as actors and actresses. A woman isn't have sex when she strips and teases in front of a camera, but it is still pornography.
