In the article, Dr. Chauntelle took issue with efforts to restrict or curtail porn for political purposes: “If you limit people’s ability to safely create it, legally and within a community that has checks and balances,” she said, “that brings so much danger and so many problems for the workers in the industry and the consumers who want to see it. Right now when people watch porn legally made, they know that they’re watching consensual sex on a safe set run by professionals.”

“There are carvings and chalk drawings in caves on the other side of the planet of people in different sex positions. Us wanting to visually represent sex has been around since humans have been around,” she said.
