Would you ever do porn?

Continuing the conversation on porn from today’s Sex+ about doing porn for extra money!

This is a favorite FAQ of my 14 year old boys. *rolling eyes*

*In response to some comments arguing that worrying about health isn’t valid: WTF? Arguing about my health is NOT a “ridiculous argument”. Educate yourself. Using condoms and dental dams doesn’t really mean a whole lot as far as comprehensive protection, especially: when you have a high number of partners, when HIV can stay dormant for up to 6 months assuming EVERYONE was being routinely tested (rare in most sectors of the porn industry), when there are a number of diseases that men cannot be tested for (i.e. genital warts), and when there are diseases that condoms/dams don’t protect against (i.e. herpes).

  1. I thought it would be funny if you just did a video of about 20 seconds of text saying “would I do it?” then just simply saying no at the end.

    I’m glad you explained it though, I’ve never asked this myself, I’ve never cared to. I love your videos Laci, thanks for being so informative!

  2. I have an odd feeling that some of the people who asked you that question are probably a lot older than 14.

    P.S. You’re probably subscribed to the YT Channel carlincherrybomb, but they came out with a video the other day called The Hymen is a Myth, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PaKsEwQKF_E. It may be a good topic for you to make a video on.

    • I don’t know…the spelling is usually pretty atrocious haha…

      Thanks for the link, never heard of the channel. TBH I don’t watch a lot of YouTube these days :S

  3. Hey Laci I heard that you took it off for your class that you were teaching a little while ago on twitter? How’d it go? were you embarrassed to be naked in front of a bunch of people?

  4. Hey Laci! I just want to say you’re really awesome and the topics you cover in your videos are great :} Hardly anyone talks about sex unless it’s in a joking matter but your videos are very informative. Keep up the great work!

  5. that’s not a surprise to anyone who pays attention, in your vlog about casual sex you can tell you are not personally big on casual sex so obviously porn would be out of the question. you just broke the hearts of 100′s of little pervs out there LOL

  6. Most of these reasons are pretty easy to refute (not that I don’t respect your decision). For example porn performers get tested regularly, so you’re probably safer having sex with them. how many random people that you meet at a bar or even at a “reputable place” where you meet sexual partners have medical testing up to date?

    also, check out the youtube channel for eden fantasies, Nina Hatley posts there, she’s pretty feminist and all that. It’s very interesting.

  7. The health argument is bit ridiculous though, because there are productions that have safer sex in their productions.

    • Are you serious? Not sure if I should be worried or grossed out. Please educate yourself. It’s not a ridiculous argument at all.

    • Any situation where you have a high number of partners is risky. It can be minimized, but eh…there’s really no escaping it. Fact of life.

    • Do you really think the porn industry would let you know if the actors catch something bad?

      If it is curable, they take the treatment and if not, they “retire”; very few times they let out about an HIV diagnosis, and always more than one.
      The porn industry depends on people getting turned on by the ideas they sell – STD’s don’t get the public horny. Plus, the actors are not obliged to go in public about their private health (unethical), even if their contract makes them take periodical tests (and the tests themselves are not 100% safe for detection of contamination, and usually come too late given the number of different sexual partners in a very short time). Even more, medical confidentiality cannot be broken either and the porn industry lives on making viewers think there is no risk at all.

      Having sex without a condom is not like doing stunts without a rope; no matter your skills, you will get infected if there’s something there to get you.

  8. Laci the pervs i think watch your channel because they see a beautiful young woman not afraid to talk about sex and to them it may be titilating to them to some degree. From all the request for breast pics im pretty sure im right on this. I commented on the vid to tell the BF to get off his lazy ass and get a second job if needed. how could anyone ask or even bring up the subject of having a loved one do porn. I watch porn but i see it as a fantasy type thing. to ask someone that you love to do this because you need money is a sign to tell this Bozo to hit the road.

    • Yes… I could be called a perv, and I STARTED watching her channel for those very reasons, but by the second or third vid, I also realized that I identified with many of her points of view (even though on SOME, I’m diametrically opposed!)

      On the other hand… I’m not about to ask her to compromise her moral integrity and post pics/vids/etc. merely for my enjoyment…

      I DO think that for her whole “breast gallery” idea, she should anonymously post pics of hers too… then she could say that she was participating, but not have to feel like she was producing porn.

  9. Thanks Laci u r very good at this, on the behalf of men lol i am sorry for some idiots on here asking for ya to take it off. Be like teenagers and just dream about it lol

  10. Hi Laci, a serious on-topic question for you. Some porn “stars” have similar views to you (so my friend told me) and decide to make movies/footage with one partners only i.e. long term boyfriend, husband etc. No doubt the prospect of looking at the mating roster each week is not something they wanted to view.

    Question is if you needed to make money badly (hypothetically) and had the option to make adult movies with your life partner – would you do that?

    I’m interested as it provides positive outlooks to the 5 dimensions you covered on you recent YT vid. Thanks and keep the good work going.

  11. Hey laci, im just 16 years old and i have no idea who you are but i think your sweet and informative. These videos give an entertaining look on sex and the benefits and problems. I appreciate all you do :) Right now i am dating someone who is bi polar. Any advice on how to trat her (emotionally or physically)

    • 1. Get educated. Find out what bipolar means and what the symptoms are. 2. Be VERY patient. Being bipolar can be very frightening so she will need to know you have her back. 3. Kind of goes with 1. The mood swings are very sudden and in some cases become violent with just the slightest thing to set them off. Be prepared to deal with that and remember if she says or does something during the mood swing that might be offensive or hurtful, she isn’t in the right state of mind.
      That advice is from personal experience before I found the right meds. Hope that helps!

  12. glad you wouldn’t do it. my respect for you would drop somewhat. and i know it shouldn’t. but i dunno… i mean, some porn is fine, it’s just, would u be able to choose what kind you’re doing? and you’re still having sex with hundreds of dudes. you’re my favorite you tube sexy chick. so i can’t picture you with less than a lowcut shit. haha. :) anyway. much love. have fun.

    • Actually, Alex, many pornstars do scenes with the same guys over and over. It’s not necessarily sex with hundreds of dudes, its sex with the same five or six dudes thirty times each.

    • Laci says everywhere that you shouldn’t judge people for their personal decisions. So, saying that your respect for her would drop is going against everything is she is try to teach you. This is all about making informed decisions, and, empowerment. Maybe you should watch a few more of her videos before judging the brave women that have decided to DO porn.

  13. There is a perfectly safe form of porn out there where sex is excluded, softcore porn. Strip tease, dancing, posing, etc., nothing that could put your health at risk. Then there’s the masturbation, playing with same sex friends using toys, etc. that would also not be a health risk.
    But whatever.

    • Actually, Mike, sharing toys is a risk. Anything that comes into contact with one person’s seminal/vaginal fluids, then comes into contact with another’s without being thoroughly washed beforehand can still transmit the bacteria/virii.

  14. Although the porn industry is a lot safer than it used to be (due to growing concerns over STD/STI), infections are still very common throughout the industry.

    The more risky infections such as HIV/AIDS are taken much more seriously, so their risk factor is similar to any other promiscuous person.

    However, the more “minor” infections such as herpes or gonorrhea run rampant through the industry.

    Considering how many performers do NOT make the use of condoms, it’s pretty easy to see how easily a performer can contract an infection.

  15. I heard a piece on the CBC a couple of months ago about the controversy, within the industry, whether or not they should enforce condom use in porn, being that porn creates a vision of how sex ‘should’ be to people who don’t know any better. The element that caught my ear, was the … friction … argument. That because sex acts in porn are often rather lengthy, it leads to an uncomfortable state for the female actor. It was good to hear that they take on the job health and comfort safety so seriously … as I suppose if you take the stress of thinking of those things off the table, it makes performance easier.

    Red, I would point you to … http://aim-med.org/about/ … the organization that serves the medical needs of the porn industry. They emphasize their AIDS/HIV tests, but also test for other STDs.

    Keep up the great work Laci … my response as well.

  16. Well, in the higher echelons of the industry, there are regular screenings and all participants have to turn in an STD test before the shoot; but the industry isn’t all higher-echelon, unfortunately. Plus, the amount of incidents indicates that while there IS a security net after a certain point, it’s not iron-clad and things (mainly AIDS) slips through the cracks.

    And there is the over-abundance of actors/actresses who have different understanding of the word “consent” and “don’t do (act)” which happens, so the issue of choice in how you employ yourself in porn is kind of an ad hoc thing, dependent equally on your partner and you.

  17. Exactly the answer I was expecting (and hopping to hear) but you neglected to highlight the other type of porn. The one that’s just you and your significant other. Bit the thing about that is that it can be seen as just a job of something beautiful or sharing a gift or body with the world. Love your vids!

  18. Just… Unfortunate. You have great curves and I think that many persons whould have liked seeing you do that. Seriously. I love you Laci <3 :).

  19. I love your videos, Laci, and I think you have a really interesting take on these issues. I completely understand your reasons. I am curious, though, as to if your position might change if you were to do non-professional porn? Perhaps if you had a partner who was interested in the same? I’m sure a lot of the issues would still be there, but at least the issue of not being emotionally connected with your partner.

    I hope you don’t take this as trying to pressure you to change your mind or anything, I’m honestly curious what your take on that scenario.

  20. It great that you don’t exploit your sexuality as a commodity. That’s a very attractive thing in a woman, especially if it’s not based on pious prudishness, or a sense of moral superiority. I admire your attitude to open discussion of sexual matters. The advice you give is both sensible and open-minded. You are a great role model for younger peeps (listen up guys). Thanks for just being wonderful Laci. X

  21. Would you ever consider doing a home video? Not to post on the internet or anything like that, but something exciting for you and your partner to watch? I know some people can find it very exciting.

  22. How about when you get married, because there are some couples out there who do pornography with each other alone.

    (personally I wouldn’t want to see you in porn, because it’s hard to see someone in the same light after you have seen them doing certain things, like having sex.)

  23. If education is a key, then, as usual, Laci is a lock. What might seem to be a simple answer, 35 seconds contains the answer plus profound explanations, well done!

  24. Porn for fast money is NEVER an answer, porn for pleasure, for empowerment, etc etc is an interesting way to go to feel better about yourself, thus meaning it’s way beyond of what im talkin about. Sell ur old clothes, ur furniture, tv, i don’t know; i’m mexican so if we need fast money we go out and sell food on the streets, if this girl is really thinking on doing porn for fast money she clearly needs toooo re evaluate her life and what it means to her

    • How do you feel about strippers? They get more money some nights than people working decent managerial level jobs. And there’s generally no swapping of bodily fluids either. But what if the couple in the porn just set up a website themselves and it ends up being successful. If they keep it between themselves, is that the same thing?

  25. I’ve always loved your vids, your approach, and your philosophy, sexual and otherwise. I think you’re wonderful, Laci.

    Really, though, it bugs me that you would have to answer this question so much that you would make it a faq. Can’t anybody see that if you wanted to be in porn, you already would be?

    But I guess it does prompt some curiosity. People wonder why sex positivity doesn’t equate to being willing to do porn. Part of that maybe is that they think that would be that moral objection would be the only reason women have for not doing it. Sort of like the guy who presumes that a woman who has more sex partners guys would automatically want to have sex with him. That’s not how it works.

    The rest is probably, and sadly, that most sex positive women people hear from, when they do listen, are current or ex-sex workers.

    I really think you can more effectively give a sex-positive message outside the sex industry than inside, while expressing the need to have her sexuality shared privately. Nobody can accuse you of making money from your advocacy, though why that’s any worse with sex, than say, with conservative talk radio, I don’t know.

    Just keep doing what you’re doing, Laci. Or not. I’ll still love ya.

  26. The health aspect only matters if the sex acts occur with partners. There are plenty of people that make it big in solo work. But your other objection is entirely valid. I’ve often wondered. At least in art, I’ve found that upon having to do it for school or for work, I stopped doing it for fun. It was as if the life had been sucked out of my art because I had put a price on it. It was much more difficult to enjoy. I can’t help but wonder if the same would happen for sex. I suppose only asking someone in the industry would help with that. Granted, the only person I know who has been in the industry seems to enjoy sex just fine… but there’s no reason that his example would be the rule and not the exception. It may be different for each person.

    At the very least, even if it doesn’t completely ruin the experience, I could see it somewhat cheapening the experience. I personally do not allow my partners to use sex as a commodity. I tell them in no uncertain terms that they are to retract their offer of “sex for x” or I will be walking out the door right then and there. I find that it prevents me from getting caught in those stupid games and prevents them from feeling obligated to have sex as payment for something (which I find cheapens it by putting a price on it). I’ve never thought about how that connects with pornography, I’ll have to consider that in more depth.

  27. I agree with your statement. Though I think you are insanely attractive, and porn is by far nothing terrible, it just doesn’t seem like your thing :P

  28. Well… it sort of depends who you’re doing it with :P
    Would I make a porno with my boyfriend? Probably yeah. Health just isn’t an issue, and it’d be fun! But I guess since porn movies are an industry, you’d have to follow rules of a director or something…
    Ha, what do I know.
    Love your clips Laci!

  29. Maybe a video of your face/orgasm. You know… No naked body but a headshot while masturbating to show your expression and emotion.

    The anonymous breast pic idea is also a good one.

    I would like to see a video on how teen boys view women and how porn can affect that.

    I’d like to thank you for your videos. I have a totally different view of people, sex, and girls after viewing your videos.

    PS you are attractive though. Just sayin.

  30. I work in the “porn industry” and your statement that “assuming EVERYONE was being routinely tested (rare in most sectors of the porn industry)” is not true.

    We require that all our performers are tested monthly at minimum, many times we may require weekly depending on the style of work she/he is doing. This applies to male and female performers equally. In the mainstream porn industry this is a standard. It is very likely that small producers (i.e. – guys that start a website just to have sex with young girls) do not enforce this, but what can you expect if you reply to a newspaper ad and show-up to a seedy hotel to fuck some random person?

    These is a non-profit that was established for adult industry testing: http://www.aim-med.org/

  31. Also consider that porn doesn’t necessarily have to mean having sex with lots of other people. It could still mean just showing off your naked body and doing some solo porn. It is still your choice about the TYPE of porn you want to do. That type of porn really WOULD be safe from a health point of view.

  32. You are a beautiful, articulate, intellegent, interesting person the fact that you spend so much time and energy helping others is truly something special I admire you and what you do Laci. Id love to actually carry on a conversation with you. That would be far better then ever watching a porn. Your a winner :)

  33. I would very much like to know as well. I am kind of curious as to how one could get this kind of information. Did he, by any means, get it from Wikipedia, the most/least informative encyclopedia on the internet?

    Just a question.

  34. Hey Laci,

    Off topic, but I just wanted to say that I’m a huge fan of your work both on DNews and your own channel. Please do us all the favor of never giving up or stopping! Love you Laci!

  35. You said the word “commodity”.

    Porn doesn’t have to be for money. Technically, you can do porn without selling yourself.

    Also the ageist remark about 14 year old boys seems pretty rude. I have no idea how old you are, but the first thing I did after seeing one of your videos is search your name in certain search engines.

    I think it’s funny you have no problem talking about sex but when some asked if you’d post nude pictures you told them to fuck off.

    Have a nice day.

    • Actually, you know what? How about fuck you Laci Green.

      I made activist cards to raise awareness about the U.S. funded rape holocaust in the Congo.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLV9szEu9Ag

      I sent cards to every (on a federal level) congressman/congresswoman, every senator, every governor… i sent cards to officials in about 20 different government agencies, about 300 mayors, black actors, female actors, human rights activists as well as a few other notable people.

      I passed out cards in public twice and left them in noticeable places on two college campuses.

      A woman, a woman known by many such as yourself, could do a porn for charity and raise awareness for a social cause for THOUSANDS more people then I ever could in one fell swoop by make ONE video or even posting ONE photo for a social cause.

      Women have power and what do they do? Try to make people ashamed for wanting to see what makes you beautiful on the outside?

      It seems to me that women see themselves as prostitutes more than men ever could. What the fuck if just 1% of the women we knew did a photo or a porn for a social cause, the world would be a better place.

      Is that too fucking constructive for you?

  36. Smart, Gorgeous, Curvy and seemingly a different girl then every other boring girl I seem to come across. Isn’t it funny what brings you to webpages and makes you want to click a link… Your minding your business doing some serious work and all of a sudden you see something amazing like this girl. So you get curious and click the link and before you know it your dream girl is talking to your face and work is on the back boiler lol.

  37. If you are so comfortable with your body why don’t you ever show yourself nude or demonstrate how to get comfortable with yourself.

  38. Haha, Laci you’re so…straight to the point its good that you believe that sex is a special bond, you have NO IDEA. How under rated sex with just people you love is. BUT BEFORE I GET TO ACCIDENTALLY TYPING AN ESSAY, let me end this by saying, Hello I’m Dev Brown. And i think you’re awesome. :)

  39. hello everybody! first, laci made up her MIND to do whatever she wants with her BODY and there’s not a SOUL who can change that. don’t get me wrong , i’m an 18 year guy but I think she is a funny straight forward woman, that’s strong willed. but don’t try to reword the same idea and hope to get her to say sure.TBH if a persons going to say no they should stick with the whole arguement, no porn vids or pics.to me its like cheating; and laci’s right 100% sex is bond and she may want it to be more than just stimulant of the senses,but a unison.to many people similar to laci and I, sex is much more than just sex.

    Ps-just so you know i’m not homosexual , i was raised by all women and grew up kind heart and mature mind
    PSs-laci it would be fantastic talk to you

  40. OK, it’s Your FAQ by 14 year old boys,
    but I’m willing to bet ALL your male fans wish You would…
    if You’re even a fraction as animated, enthusiastic & Super’Cute when You’re getting “Freaky” as You are while recording Your YOUTUBE segments,
    then You’re Definitely EVERY guy’s Fantasy Fling…

    * Besides ~
    it’s not like we’re not fantasizing about You already…
    ;)

    sorry, but it’s the truth…
    :-p
