Why Ethical Porn?

By Max Candy. 

Ethical porn production, heck ethical anything in the arena of human relations, has two things in common. One, it puts the needs and rights of humans first — their mental and physical well being is paramount. And two, it is always done with compassion.

It’s a circle, a complete cycle, starting with compassion, then moving on to an honest communication of needs. This is then followed by frank discussion of possibilities — a negotiation of what might happen — arriving at an agreement. Finally, doing that agreed upon action and always circling back to that start.

“Unethical” is reductive and linear. It simply never factors in any humanity, reducing people to objects. It’s without compassion and anything done without compassion reduces ALL those involved.

Max Candy is a collector of experiences, a world traveler, a photographer, a documentarian, a multi-award winning erotic/porn film producer/director, and a generally curious soul. He is happiest in motion and quickly atrophies without adventure. To wit, he is currently finishing up a 24-month around-the-world odyssey, filming a mainstream BDSM-positive documentary film called “tOuch”. Find him on Twitter at @MaxCandyCOM.
