Synopsis:
Never before had the issue of consent in porn been formally addressed by industry insiders, let alone on a worldwide level, as it was on Thursday via a live web broadcast.

It was an unprecedented insider look into the complex issues of consent, encompassing how performers and consumers can make better informed decisions, what communication systems already exist to proactively ensure consent at all stages of a shoot and why consent extends beyond sex to impact personal branding and revenue streams.

The show was devoted to demystifying the various practices within the industry that ensure performer safety; from performers’ agents doing due diligence to pre-scene conversations and negotiations with co-workers to directors remaining engaged and aware of their performers’ state of mind.

    I watched this off of APAC’s site last year, and it’s a terrific panel. Lots of great discussion and I really loved how much insight the panel gave on how consent is an often under-valued and hard to find commodity in the “normal world,” and what the world at large could learn, from how the adult industry has grown towards a consent-driven enterprise.
