With the industry accessible to anyone with a camera and some hustle, a more extreme element wound up decimating the landscape of popular porn. Rough, degrading sex isn't by default misogynistic, but it's noteworthy that if anyone open a browser and seek out corresponding sexual acts in gay porn, the vibe may be aggressive and performatively debasing, but it's never this hateful. There's a prevalent belief that porn stars must have been molested as children. The theory that childhood abuse is a gateway to porn aggravates many high-profile performers when it's raised in interviews. For performers today, pornography doesn't so much offer the opportunity to explore their limits as to commodify acts of endurance. It's why some women have moved into the territory of OnlyFans: a content platform that facilitates a direct exchange between performer and consumer through a subscription, pay-per-view or tips.
