Despite porn’s global popularity, social acceptance remains very difficult to come by for current and former porn performers, producers, and others who work in the adult industry.

Welcome to “Women in Porn: A Discriminating Audience” (from May 12, 2015).

In the most recent live broadcast from, I discuss discrimination, where it comes from, and possible solutions within the context of adult entertainment. Joining me are Kelly Holland (Penthouse), Sherri Shaulis (AVN), Julia Ann, and Vicky Vette.

How might women working in the industry navigate a social landscape populated by folks who are jerking off with one hand …and pointing fingers with the other? It’s a tiresome and difficult topic, but it’s also something that every woman working in adult entertainment seems to have had to contend with in some way or another.

What do you think?
