For me, being a feminist is about respecting women's choices, whatever they may be. If a woman over the legal age requirement wants to voluntarily participate in the porn industry, that's fine.

It seems like the idea that a woman could have full control over her body is still shocking to some.

I may be wrong but in the same way it is perceived that women may think they have to act and perform a certain way during sex because of porn, then surely the same principal can be applied to naïve or impressionable gay men, which in this case could prove dangerous

Imagine every time you made love to somebody, you had Louis Theroux come up behind you and back you on the back. It'd be truly mortifying, wouldn't it? And that's just happened to this guy. I imagine the only reason he's still doing it is because he needs more money for his zombie truck

A group of women dressed as butchers and businessmen assembled in a Central London location as a form of feminist protest. No it wasn't an inappropriate PETA demonstration against animal cruelty, but rather opposition to an international "adult entertainment" trade summit held in Bloomsbury.
