Mia Khalifa - once a popular adult actor - has revealed not only the pittance she was paid but also the rampant exploitation in an industry that often seems immune to criticism. M ia Khalifa — once the most popular porn star on the planet — has just done the least sexy thing a woman can do: speak out against the adult entertainment industry , the one that made her rich and famous. It is a boner-killing truth ignored by the many consumers who visit the site in their droves. In the porn industry, there is a belief that anything can and, more importantly, should go. A fear of appearing puritanical prohibits any genuine meaningful critiques of it from the left, leaving it to pearl-clutching Conservatives. And because of this, it is held to a completely different standard to any other part of the entertainment industry.

This tendency also prevents us from engaging in a wider conversation about mental health, sex work and stigma.

T he last time I saw Gail Dines speak, at a conference in Boston, she moved the audience to tears with her description of the problems caused by pornography, and provoked laughter with her sharp observations about pornographers themselves. Activists in the audience were newly inspired, and men at the event — many of whom had never viewed pornography as a problem before — queued up afterwards to pledge their support. The scene highlighted Dines's explosive charisma and the fact that, since the death of Andrea Dworkin, she has risen to that most difficult and interesting of public roles: the world's leading anti-pornography campaigner. She wrote it primarily to educate people about what pornography today is really like, she says, and to banish any notion of it as benign titillation. The book documents the recent history of porn, including the technological shifts that have made it accessible on mobile phones, videogames and laptops.
