I have said before here that like Agent Mulder, I want to believe.
Today I want to, but I am feeling skeptical. Its one of those things where in context and all, before I take someone at face value and such, I really want some back up, some proof. I want names named and all. The where and when and whatnot is over on the current porn threads previously mentioned. A woman, I presume, has shown up and said she did porn. Okay, I believe her. She mentions how she was repeatedly abused while doing so. Okay, considering how any jerk with a camera can make porn these days I believe that too. She mentions being locked up, held down, raped repeatedly, and how if she spoke out about it, she was just attacked again-and how all of this happened to her in the mainstream legal porn industry.
Which is where the skeptic comes in. Its not that I don’t want to or even don’t believe her- but I have some serious questions. The CA porn industry (which, sorry, is THE legal mainstream industry), what companies? What producers? Film or Net? Who was responsible for or allowed this treatement of her? Who did it? The reason being if this did happen in mainstream legal porn, well shit, that needs to be called out in order to put a stop to it post haste. Names need to be named so that other women do not go in to work for these people. And the argument she makes about how if you are not famous and you say anything you will never work again or will get harmed….well, that may be true for some people at some point- but if you are no longer doing porn…and oddly enough, not famous little old me, I am pretty sure that a great many of the people I know involved in porn, if I were to go to them and say “You know, Director X locked me up, held me down, allowed me to be raped”….they would be all over that bastard like flies on shit because people like him are not only animals- but bad for business.
So yeah, my initial response is to believe a woman when she says “I was”. The “mainstream-legal” industry thing complete reared by skeptic gene. I’m not even now saying I don’t believe, but I need to know more. Not because I think she is lying about her treatment, persay, but to know if she actually means Mainstream Legal rather than some asshole with a camera.
And I sure as hell want to ask, but I know I would be skinned alive (theoretically) for asking. I might anyway. We’ll see.
