CYBERSPACE — Educator and author Rich Moreland asked thirty women and men, ranging from 19-74 years old, in the Washington D.C. metro area for the definition of “#EthicalPron.”
“Overall, most people were genuinely puzzled by the term,” Moreland reported in his write up on Ethical.Porn. “Some respondents dismissed ‘#EthicalPron’ as an oxymoron.”
According to the site, the results showcased a deep disconnect between the public’s understanding of adult content production and actual industry practice.
Per Ethical.Porn contributors, adult content that is consensual and transparent, is created in an environment that emphasizes safety and respect and does not contribute to wider social inequalities via troublesome post-production marketing is ethical.
Elements like tenor and intensity, sex acts being depicted, or production value do not preclude content from being ethical. Respondents, according to the write up, associated “Ethical #Pron” with everything from a leftist political agenda to degradation of women.
According to a representative, Moreland’s findings suggest: “‘#EthicalPron’ does not resonate broadly with the public.”
