Mindbrowse.com Presents ‘Ethical Porn in Practice’ at XBIZ 2018

Mindbrowse.com & Sssh.com to host discussion regarding ethics in today’s production space.

January 9, 2018 (Los Angeles, CA) — Mindbrowse.com and Sssh.com are hosting the discussion “Ethical Porn in Practice” at the 2018 XBIZ show.

The event will be held on Tuesday January 16 at noon in the Andaz Hotel in Los Angeles, CA. It will also be broadcast live via Periscope on Twitter at @ssshforwomen.  

In today’s adult industry, ethical content production is imperative — but what constitutes ethical in practice, as well as within the context of our constantly evolving social landscape? “Ethical Porn in Practice” will dig deep into “ethical” as it pertains to adult content production — a concept that transcends notions of “correct” sexual expression or genre and emphasizes multifaceted standpoints, as well as consent. The discussion will also explore ways in which producers and performers can work together more effectively.

Mindbrowse events are produced by Sssh.com’s award-winning director Angie Rowntree and moderated by sociologist Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals.

“My hope for 2018 is that, as an industry and a community, we acknowledge more fully our collective strengths and best interests, working toward creating a better work space for all,” Rowntree shared. “This event, like all our previous Mindbrowse programs, is an attempt to take action by engaging relevant issues in an open and respectful way — realistic discussion that can lead to action.”

Event participants include performer and custom video producer, Casey Calvert; Grooby’s Marketing and Editorial Director and owner of Ikigai Marketing, Kristel Penn; Lead Director of YanksVR.com and Yanks.com, Lily Campbell; owner of Venus Lux Entertainment Inc., Venus Lux; Vice President of Operations for Rodney Moore and Transational Fantasies, Fran Marquez ; author, performer and activist, Siouxsie Q. James; performer Michael Vegas; and performer, writer and Spankchain.com associate, Janice Griffith.

In an attempt to create a more egalitarian space, this Mindbrowse event will deviate from the conventional panel set up. Participants will engage with viewers and attendees in a surprising new format. XBIZ show attendees are encouraged to attend to see what’s new.   

“‘Ethical porn’ is getting a lot of lip service in the mainstream media lately, but it’s often just code for ‘porn [whatever writer] likes,’” Dr. Tibbals said. “We are hoping to get generate discussion and insights from within the community regarding what actually constitutes ethical production — and ideally start formulating ways performers and producers can take action to work together more effectively.”
