52: Ethical Porn Viewing

Episode 52: Approaching Pornography Ethically

Natasha Helfer Parker interviews Dr. David Ley, author of Ethical Porn for Dicks: A Man's Guide to Responsible Viewing Pleasure and a return guest on the show. Many people, even members of the LDS church, are moving away from the "porn addiction" framing and rigid expectations of 0% viewing of sexually explicit material. But then the next question inevitably comes up... how do I participate in a behavior that has questionable issues in regards to the industry, my values, ethics, cultural objectification of women in particular and many other legitimate concerns. This interview attempts to address or at least begin a dialogue around some of these topics.

Thank you to Jeff Meyers for the intro and Peter & Mary Danzig of Otter Creek Duo for the concluding bumper music.
