Chris chats with porn performers Chanel Preston and Mickey Mod about the current state of the porn industry, why they oppose condom mandates like Proposition 60, and their work with the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee (APAC). Michael Stabile from Kink.com joins the discussion to talk about the rise of anti-porn forces within US politics and corporate America. Jerry Barnett, the free speech activist and author of Porn Panic: Sex and Censorship in the UK, helps us understand what's happening across the pond. And it's not encouraging! British porn sensation Harriet Sugarcookie and her business partner Tommie round out this episode by sharing their thoughts on censorship, their unique approach to making pornography, and the healing power of harrietsugarcookie.com. Check out the official position of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) on sex/porn addiction here, and a similar statement from The Mormon Mental Health Association mentioned on the show here. Correction: Chris mistakenly refers to this show as "episode 29" when it is in fact episode 28.
