Introduction

With all the recent media hype around Cameron’s War on Porn and Advod in the UK, I pondered a while on whether it was a good idea to join the debate or not. Cherry has ALWAYS promoted responsible, regulated and ethical adult entertainment and these kinds of discussions sometimes have a tendency to blow up in one’s face, despite all good intentions, due to their politically and morally charged undercurrents.

Part 4 – What are your thoughts on controlling access to porn and other adult programming, gaming, gambling, etc?

Ms Boomer: Like Amsterdam, left alone the market will saturate, people will become desensitised and it will loose hype and popularity or at least reduce to ‘normal’ proportions.  Drive it underground through prohibition and you will see an even bigger revival that we are seeing right now. Porn is legal in our societies and if David Cameron manages to get it banned, it will see its greatest revival yet. It is a massive industry and always will be. Let those who want to use it, use it and teach your children the difference between ‘real’ and ‘fantasy’.

Ms Liberation: I believe it’s a totally unrealistic objective! Something amazing happened back in 2003, when adult wap sites first started appearing in the UK. The industry got together and found a way to control access by joining the forces of the Mobile Network Operators, independent regulators and the adult industry before this budding new entertainment channel became too big to manage.

Part 3 – Are regulatory measures (UK example) enough to protect minors from viewing +18 content?

Ms Boomer: Our youngsters can and will access what they want, like I did all those years ago in Amsterdam, if they have a bit of initiative and no matter how much their parents put child locks on their lives. There seems to be such an unnecessary emphasis and hype on porn right now through Fifty Shades of Grey and its legacy.

Ms Liberation: First of all – recent media attention around this issue in the UK has been conveniently skewed to muddle the message, which only makes matters much worse! I get so mad, when the media deliberately joins and confuses child access to porn and child pornography in the same headline or news item. This is nothing but detrimental to the overall objective!

4 women, 4 generations, 4 perceptions… of porn! – Part 1

Part 1 – What is your view on adult entertainment through the ages?

Ms Boomer: As long as there are males, there will be prostitutes and as long as people have sex, there will be porn to spice it up or enjoy on your own.  The Romans had it ‘live’ indoors… performed by and with their slaves.  And what they did challenged the most extreme adult content you see today. Homosexuality was norm as was same sex marriage!  They just castrated their victims to make them more like ‘girls’. One of the Caesars actually married his rent boy.  You just had to take care that if you were free born and of high standing, you were not seen to be the receiver, as that was an offense punishable by law. Your status in life dictated your position in bed.
