Introducing “Freedom Porn: The Direct Action Campaign For Sex-Positivity”

It’s official: a blogging friend of mine, Alexander ‘Sasha’ Ahimsa, has embarked on a new project to promote sex-positivity. As he wrote on his blog Sex in the Pink,

“The mission of Freedom Porn is to empower and engage individuals to create and share ethical porn as a means of advancing sex-positivism and sexual freedom.We advocate safer sex and consensual sex, and feminism is inseparable from our mission. We also fight for freedom of speech, privacy, and free culture.”

Sasha and his contributors are aiming to create a free, positive, and safe environment in which to enjoy sex. As the project is in its early stages, the website is still pretty limited, but is rapidly expanding. Although there are plenty of queer friendly, feminist porn sites out there, I chose to promote this one because of Sasha’s awesome sex-positivity message.

“In walks sex-positivism. Being sex-positive is being comfortable with the expression of our own sexual identities and accepting of everyone else’s without preconceived notions of what they may be. You’re straight, I’m pansexual, ze’s intergender, he’s trans,  she’s gay, we’re polyamorous, they’re not, and it’s all okay! Ironically, a sex-positive culture is a culture in which sex is a complete non-issue. Everyone knows Shane in Accounting is gay and about to get married, and that Alex in Marketing doesn’t really date guys, she just screws them. It’s not whispered about any more, no one gets fired over it anymore, no one has to fret about being a slut or coming out of the closet because, as it turns out, it doesn’t matter. If you’re open enough with yourself, sex is just not something that distorts your point of view. Society has a long way to go in that regard.”

I hope all of you will go check out both Freedom Porn and Sex in The Pink, and if you feel the desire, contribute to the mission!
