Stop Sexual Assault Within the Adult Film Industry

This petition had 27 supporters

There are currently very few restrictions on what pornographers can produce outside of age restrictions. This has left pornographers free to produce materials that, outside of a shoot would constitute sexual assault. Drugs and Alcohol more often than not are abused on set. In these cases the sex acts on camera almost certainly constitute sexual assault because someone under the influence of drugs or alcohol cannot consent to sexual interaction. New Regulations need to be implemented to enforce content based restrictions, worker safety standards and compliance. Due to its damaging internal effect on actors and external effect on society, pornographic depictions of sexual assault and/or coercion ought to be banned under the obscenity clause of the first amendment. According to the Crimes Against Children Institute in 2016, 93% of boys and 63% of girls under the age of 16 have viewed pornographic content before they have even taken a comprehensive sex-ed course. Pornography, according to the New York Times,has replaced sexual education for a lot of teens and constitutes a large part of how younger generations view sexuality. Violent depictions of sexual assault in porn normalizes that behavior and should not be allowed in the public sphere of the internet.
