This guy stopped watching porn — and he wants you to know why. Gender activist Ran Gavrieli felt that most of the images he saw in porn encouraged negative, even violent, attitudes toward women, despite a recent wave of feminist porn. So he pulled the plug, and found that his personal sex life and private fantasies became much more fulfilling.
In his talk at TEDxJaffa, he advocates for physically and emotionally-safe sex, as well as erotica that shows a wider range of fulfilling sexual experiences — including the intimacy of human connection, laughter, and touch. Watch his talk here.
There are plenty of ex porn stars who have said pretty much the same based on their experiences in the industry, like Danielle “Queen B” Williams. Yet there are people in these notes behaving like this guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about and is a sex negative asshole instead of someone who’s actually actively removing himself from contributing to an industry that overwhelmingly exploits women. He’s making the effort to stop funding and participating in sexploitation and human trafficking and people are behaving like he’s being a terrible human being.
