Mindbrowse Presents ‘Women in Porn: A Discriminating Audience’

BOSTON — Next Tuesday, adult stars Vicky Vette, Julia Ann and Gauge will join Penthouse Managing Director Kelly Holland on the panel of “Women in Porn: A Discriminating Audience,” the latest live event in the online discussion series presented by Mindbrowse.com.

“The Mindbrowse ‘Women in Porn’ series is dedicated to tackling issues faced by women working in all areas of the adult industry, piece by piece,” said sociologist Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals, who will moderate the show. “I’m very excited to explore the issue of discrimination – it’s a tiresome and difficult topic, but it’s also something that every woman working in adult entertainment seems to have had to contend with in some way or another.”

Starting at 3 p.m. (EDT), the panel will discuss their own experiences with discrimination, what they believe the source to be, and what, if anything, can be done about it.

The show will be live broadcast and available to viewers free of charge on MindBrowse.com.  The show will also be live-tweeted at @ssshforwomen. Viewers can tweet questions and comments of their own using the #SexTalkTuesday hastag.

The theme for the session was proposed by Vette, who approached Mindbrowse producers with the idea after attending the live “Women in Porn” panel held at January’s XBIZ 360 event in Los Angeles.

“Discrimination against the adult industry, especially its women, is a topic that has personally tormented me for years,” Vette said. “It affects every one of us and there is no solution in sight.”

Angie Rowntree, owner of Sssh.com, the award winning erotica site for women and couples and producer of Mindbrowse shows, said while discrimination affects people who work in all facets of adult entertainment, “performers get the worst of it due to their role being the most high-profile.”

“The saddest part is what performers are really being punished for are the hang-ups and issues of those around them, not anything they’ve done on camera,” Rowntree said. “So your co-worker or neighbor is, or used to be, in porn. Is it really too much to ask of people to just get over that fact and live and let live?”
