Sex work does not mean sex trafficking. We are a pro-sex work organization. Please read more about our stance on our website.

This is kind of a strange question but I figured you're the best source of information for this so here goes: is there any reliable porn site that you know of that casts Black actors (male and female) and doesn't reduce them to gangsta stereotypes?

Not a strange question at all! While we do not know of any ethical porn sites with an all black cast, Slanted Tendency is entirely people of color. Our website’s sex-positive and feminist friendly porn resource page is a great place to find other porn sites that feature people of color without reducing them to stereotypes, like The Crash Pad Series.

We believe that everyone should be able to consensually explore and express their sexual identities (which include sexual orientations, gender identities, relationship styles, and sexual preferences) both publicly and privately, without outside pressure or coercion. The CSPH advocates for ongoing education and open discourse about all aspects of sex and sexuality, trying to decrease stigmas against expressing sexual pleasure and desire. We stress that no form of sexual activity should ever be considered “essential” or “positive” for everyone, recognizing that sex has the potential to be empowering and natural, but sexual experiences are not universally identical. While individuals define their own sexual preferences as they see fit, personal preferences should not affect the ability to celebrate alternate sexual choices between other consenting adults. The CSPH believes in providing a safe and positive space where people can comfortably learn about all aspects of sexuality, and use this knowledge to help them healthily navigate whatever sexual decisions they make for themselves.

I really enjoyed this post, so I’m going to pass it around!  Some more positive poly coverage in ‘mainstream’ news.

Another side effect of this misunderstanding is that people often wonder why we poly people need to talk openly about “what happens behind closed doors.” I have heard many times that there should be no reason to disclose one’s polyamorous relationships with parents, children, or the neighbors. That might seem logical if what we’re talking about is strictly extramarital sexual partners. But my life with my partners isn’t reducible to “what happens behind closed doors” any more than any serious, long-term relationship is. We share a home and a life; we are a family. Openly, publicly acknowledging my boyfriend as my partner is not just saying that we have sex. It’s saying that, like my husband, he is my partner in every sense of the word. He loves me and supports me and respects me. He sees me at my worst and still wants to spend his life with me anyway. It would be unimaginable to me to hide the nature of our relationship, to pretend that he is merely a friend or roommate, to not have him by my side at weddings and funerals and family holiday gatherings. But this is exactly what people are expecting of me when they ask why I feel the need to be so “open” about my “private business.”

Yes.

All this all this. 

At the same time, being poly can also mean losing a job, losing one’s bio family, losing financial supports, and more, soooooo we also need to understand why some people—out of safety concerns—do choose to keep that part hidden or less accessible to outsiders or people in their lives. That being said, it’s important to understand that that is a way to protect oneself that relies on playing to a certain relationship structure and is, essentially, using privilege to remain safe, and it would be awesome to live in a society where that privilege a) wasn’t necessary for safety and b) didn’t even exist.
