CYBERSPACE — Organizers of the recent online debate, “Women in Porn: Shattering the Myths,” declared the event successful and announced that a second discussion featuring the same panelists is already in the planning stages.

“The response from people who watched the discussion has been tremendous,” said Angie Rowntree, owner of the porn-for-women site Sssh.com and coordinator of the debate. “We received so much positive feedback, along with several requests asking that we bring back the same panelists, for another show on the same topic. This event really is just part one of an ongoing conversation, which is exactly what we hoped it would become.”

Rowntree said that the most heated moments of the debate came when the panel took up the topics of performer compensation (including whether performers make less for their efforts now than they did 10 to 20 years ago) and the question of how much responsibility the porn industry should shoulder for keeping children from accessing pornography — exchanges that Rowntree believes “people really need to see and hear for themselves.”

“That’s what this event was all about — giving women in the adult industry a chance to be heard in their own words. I don’t want to try to paraphrase the great points the panelists made,” Rowntree said, noting that the debate is still available to watch on MindBrowse.com.

Rowntree added that other live panel discussions, interviews and debates will soon air on MindBrowse.com, including the live broadcast of “An Intimate Talk with Nina Hartley and Ernest Greene”, which is scheduled for Aug. 26, and a discussion entitled “Feminism and Porn: Can They Co-Exist?” slated for broadcast in September.

The second edition of “Women in Porn: Shattering the Myths” will follow in October.

The goal for MindBrowse.com, according to Rowntree, is to develop into a “TED-like platform for discussion of serious, weighty issues surrounding the adult industry”.

“One of the best kept secrets about our industry is that it is filled with amazing people,” Rowntree said. “I’d love to see MindBrowse.com become a vehicle for people to contribute their perspective on a range of issues, and not necessarily just those that directly related to the adult industry.”
