Porn Star Conner Habib: “The Line Between Porn Consumer And Performer Shouldn’t Be So Stark”

We don’t know why porn stars should not teach children, why it’s okay to watch porn but not be in it, why we should have to hide our involvement in pornography, or why we should be ashamed of it. These arguments apply, in differing degrees, to sex itself. All of these fumblings and misunderstandings are symptoms of a world coming to terms with new openness and connectivity. What could once be private can no longer be. The line between porn consumer and performer should not be so stark; it is only so because we still hide away our sexual feelings. Being open is part of being honest.
