Dr. Gail Dines issues invitation for discussion with pro-porn protesters on March 16th following UK launch conference.

Stop Porn Culture was founded on the belief that the industrialization and commodification of sex removes the opportunity for a healthy sexuality based on agency, creativity and authenticity. For decades feminists have been questioning the link between the pervasive objectification of women and our standing in society as a class. Using the wealth of research, data and analysis of historical and institutional oppression available, anti-porn feminists have demonstrated that the use of hardcore pornography has no place in a just society.

Sex and Censorship, a UK based group, recently announced plans to protest our March 15th SPC International Launch conference. We welcome all analysis and conversation about our work, however, our Saturday event is an academic conference, and will be focusing on addressing the public health and cultural impacts of porn. There is simply no time for debate. As we are committed to listening and responding to the concerns, Dr. Gail Dines and colleagues invite the members of Sex and Censorship to a thoughtful discussion and exploration of the sex industry.

SPC is fighting for the victims of the predatory sex industry who do not have the agency to have their voices heard. Instead of working to normalize the routine abuse of women, anti-porn feminists maintain that true autonomy and choice lies within a culture that values and supports all members.

We invite you to explore this issue with us using an inclusive, intersectional feminist perspective.
