In this episode I’m sharing the 2019 Xbiz Show Consent Round Table session where I respectfully introduced a question for the panel on the ethics of consent for psychedelic shamanic pornography. Not knowing how I’d be received it took a bit of bravery to speak up but I was met with gracious insight and advisement from industry veterans. They were on point with their concerns and dissuasive remarks, all of which I take to heart and value like gold. I feel that whether you’re a sex work, porn performer or producer, or so called “civilian” with no involvement in the sex industry, this panel is very enlightening, and I thank them all very much for briefly holding space for my niche question.
In this episode I am joined by the highly accomplished adult entertainment industry attorney Corey D. Silverstein for a discussion on some best practices for porn production. I was very impressed by his passion, ferocity, and insight on a legal panel at the XBiz adult industry trade convention earlier this year. We met and spoke briefly at the event and I’ve been looking forward to exploring his wealth of knowledge ever since.
He shares some of his personal background and path to becoming an adult industry attorney, he then provides hard earned wisdom that will help keep new adult content producers and performers on the right side of the law. As more independent content creators enter the industry, this episode will hopefully serve as an empowering starting point for self-study. Ultimately Corey makes an eloquent and compelling case for why anyone involved in the industry should have competent legal representation and advisement every step of the way.
