For six years, I immersed myself in the workings of the adult industry. As editor of the porn blog Fleshbot, I spent hours combing the XXX side of the internet, acquainting myself with all manner of perversions and obscure sex acts. At this point in my career, it’s fairly safe to say that there is almost no pornographic image that would be capable of shocking me. What does shock me, on the other hand, is how ill-informed our public discourse around porn continues to be.
"What Americans Get Wrong About Porn" is from the June 28, 2017 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Lux Alptraum and narrated by Keith Sellon-Wright.
