Can I be a feminist and enjoy porn? What if my partner likes watching people in porn who look nothing like me? Can porn be ethical? How can porn be helpful and healing in my life? Where can I find porn that has people who look like me?
Hi. I’m Dawn Serra. As a sex educator and relationship coach, I get all kinds of questions about porn all the time.
Many of us have big feelings and big fears about the porn we watch or the porn someone we love watches.
Whether you’re swimming in shame, you’re curious about how to have open conversations, or you want to learn how to become a more ethical consumer, I created Hands Down: A Workshop on How Porn can Heal, Connect, & Be Ethical for you. It’s an online workshop that you watch from the privacy of your own home or mobile device.
We’ll explore definitions, attitudes, stories you tell yourself, and ways to talk about porn with a partner. Plus, I’ll offer you a ton of resources on how to take your experience to the next level, ethically.
This is about permission.
Permission to explore, permission to prioritize your pleasure, permission to connect with people you love about your pleasure and fantasies. It’s also permission to push at your edges. We get to define what sexy looks like and what we desire on our terms. Too much of what we’re given by mainstream media is this super narrow, and frankly damaging, view of sexuality, bodies, and desire.
When we decide to engage with porn in an ethical way, it means we also get to go on an adventure of questions and curiosities.
If that sounds fun, then let’s leave the shame and the whispers behind.
Enjoying porn that serves your desires and that supports the folks who make it is possible. Let me show you how.
