The “industry” since it can’t control everyone has to continue inclusion training and talks etc. Background checks, etc. I’m sure there’s many good people in the majority in that industry. It also highlights that adult content creators should be donating some of their income to progressive causes to hedge the possibility that bad actors might be using revenues for things that endanger the public.
Yet, Is democratized pornography funding parts of domestic terrorism? Maybe, Vice Media can pick up on this to do more research because I don’t have the time. Maybe if something were to come out about how a minuscule fraction of Only Fans or Camsoda or whatever are using profits to fund international or domestic terror, it would be silenced, because 1) who wants to kill the party for the millions of law-abiding people who use porn as a means of relieving stress from a world bent on “lean productivity” and hyper change, and 2) businesses won’t want their traffic hampered (governments might also like having the ability to “peek into personal behavior as well”, i.e., metadata being filtered my Mormons at NSA Utah Data Centers). The question of “Can domestic adult content fund domestic terror” isn’t out of the question, considering in earlier decades of adult content the mafia did have ties, meaning, also, that government snoops also had ties. Are we in an era where the pleasure and flashing lights of the industry has hidden the possibility that there is a small underworld where criminals (and, possibly even government agents) are involved in porn with the criminals using the easy money (relatively speaking) to fund various operations, and/or government investigators coming to investigate those criminals, yet, as we know in cases relating to “state evidence” that investigations can turn into decades long infiltration projects where the “Feds” cut deals with dangerous people on the hopes of capturing “more dangerous people”?
It would be stupid to attempt to fund domestic terror or international terror with pornography because the IP trail, payments, etc., yet, some goof balls might be tempted. However, one cannot control what one does with the money they make from employment.
Anyways, a Neo Nazi and porn actor, real name Paul Kryscuk, porn alias Pauley Harker, who has slept with women of all colors and religions (for titles such as Abuse Her, Facial Abuse, Latina Abuse, Arab Street Hookers, Ghetto Gaggers, etc., according to IAFD.com), sometimes in the most disparaging ways for fetish-oriented content, was arrested for interstate gun trafficking and for planning to murder protestors. He seems like just another idiot casualty of the post-Federal Reserve “ZOG” YouTube conspiracy universe, compounded by Ancient Alien History Channel grooming, sprinkling in some Vikings “badassery” (tying into the whole European “West is the Best” thing as a psy op) etc. Another, “conservative woke” guy who blames the Jews for everything, yet, while also having sex with Jewish women… Hm. Confusing. Not only does this event show an “anything goes” mentality regarding who is in the pornography industry (as long as you can “perform”), even though I am confident that gossip is a good way at vetting out bad actors, but it does sadly show that money takes more precedent than doing the right thing. Many people need the money (something I sympathize with); however, this article is not to shame sexual feminism or sex workers of any gender, but when our reality (paradigm – way of thinking) boils down to pure transactions, I can see how bad ideologies can feed off “the industry” (porn). But, before we got into this story, let me start with my beginning thoughts. As a disclaimer, this is not an indictment of the traditional adult entertainment industry which seems to be a very professional enterprise (finances, real estate, property, top audiovisual equipment, marketing, distribution, warehousing, costumes, hair stylists, make up, special effects, IT, website creation, award ceremonies, Halls of Fame, health testing, etc.) which has improved over time from something seedy (past tendencies of letting in drug abusers, outbreaks) into something also corporate/safe, nor a criticism of independent content creators.
His fellow performers probably had no idea about his beliefs. As far as they were concerned it was just another day at work, even though some of those days involved dog bowls, spitting in women’s faces, and general (well advanced level) jerk behavior. There’s also no way of knowing of when Mr. Harker’s beliefs changed, yet, there is the possibility he was a sociopath the entire time, living a secret life on set, but elsewhere bragging about this escapades those to want to see the collapse of civilization for some sort of “racial hierarchy paradise”. In a two party system, who do you think he voted for? Trump is the answer. Ding ding ding.
But, porn isn’t the issue. At this point of Hot Girls Wanted culture, porn seems also collegiate with schedules, testing, work, furnished apartments, chaperones etc. It’s really just some bad individuals I’m sure. Be they closeted Neo Nazis from God Knows Where (Orange County, Bakersfield, the Antelope Valley etc), to Crips or Bloods, to bikers, to even remnants of the mob, to even Zionists, or sprinkle in some Jihadist. Traditionally there’s money to be made in server hosting, pushing traffic, leasing mansions, payment systems, etc. But Only Fans has made it easier for predominately good people with some bad ones to make money.
I am not writing to judge people within sex work or kink but particularly for this paper, my focus is the pornography industry. I feel old. Sex, insecurity about sex, the alleged hipness of sexual experiences, years of bombardment of sexually charged content from 1990s wet t-shirt beer commercials, MTV Spring Break bikini dance contests hosted by Pauly Shore or Ed Lover, nineteen-eighties hair metal videos by Motely Crew with women in cages, gangster rap, to porn itself, to the punk rebelliousness of sexual feminism as it tries to achieve equality while chipping away at the “Id” of phallic patriarchy (seems like they won that war already in the West – just being honesty – I could be wrong), the existential crisis that sexually explicit content can cause – for better or worse, I prefer to say better – as it erodes and reshapes one’s preconceived notions of morality, are nothing new to me. Ok, people like to f-ck. Ok, there is a media or art form relating to sexuality to fulfill a human desire. Ok.
If anything, I am over it. There is nothing “kinky” or “he-he-he” about it. Yawn. Sex. Yawn. At this point the true “porn” is something that most people are lacking, i.e., a true human connection, stability, commitment. Yet, from the obscenest gonzo (well, what is available on Hub sites), to the most passionate plot centered porn, I feel society is so used to it that it’s not something “groundbreaking”, though I admit that being older I am trapped in my nostalgic era, i.e., I do not really follow new entertainers (I was the last generation of the DVD) and I have my “go to favorites” and favorite actresses. Typically, ladies from the nineteen nineties to the early two-thousands typically fading away after Sasha Grey (who I was not much of a fan of, to be honest, though I do value her role as a symbolic figure who really inserted the “nihilistic rebellion” of female sexuality more so into mainstream pornography, thus being a catalyst for women’s empowerment to arguable degrees).
If I am following someone new it is typically the safe (and sensual) category of the “MILF”, because I think mature women are attractive. Yet, I am a straight guy, so… I accept porn as a part of life. A public utility. The right to get off, to get a dopamine or serotonin hit, to fantasize. Though the medium is argued as crude, such as what I’m reading in Angela Carter’s The Sadien Woman and the Ideology of Pornography, there is something philosophical about porn and I am not being purposely erudite (high-brow) by staying that. You can consider the act of watching porn as a type of therapy. A mediation between self, the content, and questions pertaining of gender and society at large (not to forget all the various intersections or race, culture, income, class, etc.). I can easily see how pornography could be some topic of a French Philosopher analyzing semiotics, objects in relation to other objects and how meanings are derived, hyper-reality, etc. Don DeLillo said it best in his 1985 work, White Noise, in which he stated, if my memory is correct, “that technology is lust removed from nature”. Porn is a part of the human species. From Stone Age carvings of voluptuous women as virility fetishes found in European cave dwellings such as the Venus of Willendorf, to Japanese elaborate paintings of Geisha (awkwardly engaging in acts with squids), to Greek tapestries with women dancing with dildos, porn has always been with us and will always be. To me shame, is childish. Shame is barbaric. Shame is a way of control for people to make it appear as if their self-ascribed morality is somehow higher than that of others, or a way to even guilt trip another. The sinister impression in which mainstream media tries to push relating to pornography as something sinister in nature, something to make one feel queasy (what I call the Cohen Brother’s aura, i.e., that strange feeling you get watching their films where you feel helpless) as preconceived notions are challenged, is so tiring to me. We’ve been through this. Grow up.
I support the idea of pornography because I figure so many bodies have been thrown at the medium that to reverse course would mean to bound the species into repeating what has already been done. Every set, every actor, and every release has a story – some good, some bad. Each person has a story with some being traumatic leading to catastrophe while others are inspiring and empowering. To erase all that would be erasing our growth at articulating and understanding pornography, and thus at understanding our species in how we cognitively process sex, insecurity, fear, gender dynamics, etc. From an American standpoint we’re already at point of “being over the hump”. We’re past the Brady Bunch fear. What comes around, goes around. Rome gave way to the Dark Ages and Christendom, and that led to the modernity, and then so forth, so forth, so forth, so why erase and start over just to erase what can be learned from all that has been done? I totally reject the Puritanical view to sex (though emotions and fidelity do matter and are important) and if anything, the Puritanical unrealistic view to understanding human nature, while also not creating healthy outlets for sex (with a gender equal viewpoint), created the problems their ideological “Moral Right” descendants still preach. Yet, isn’t it ironic that the Right Wing preaches all this morality, yet, on its fringes lies a regressive, violent, fascist element, where some, as in the case of Pauley Harker engage in porn?
If anything, porn has been a tool for progressive change such as forcing reflection regarding the patriarchal ego to accept that women can willingly and voluntarily participate in acts that are contrary to one’s own moral beliefs, to showcasing the reality that people of different races have always been sexual with each other, or there is the fact that pornography is parallel to mainstream culture in that pornography’s various eras memorialize music, fashion, politics, etc. Pornography is like a cartoonish, visceral, hardcore, Precambrian mirror image of what is pent up on the surface above. It is similar to the medium of comedy in that comedy points out things that are obvious or analyzes possibilities which might not be so obvious, yet either/or, shocks the standard discourse, thus generating laughter, i.e., comedy like pornography, shocks us into our realness, hence once could say both have slight nihilistic tendencies, yet, what one calls nihilism, once can also argue as being something to nirvana (embracing impermanence, so we value our temporary time here in the living realm).
The urges that humans feel is eternal and complex. I would be lying to you if I did not state that I have not enjoyed watching pornography and I know quite a bit about it, similarly to how some people know about baseball statistics. It’s not a revolution thing to say. It’s casual sometimes, yet, a private thing. The history of porn in the USA spans from the seedy nickelodeons of the early twentieth century, to the stag films or post-war soft BDSM of Betty Paige in the forties and nineteen fifties, to New York amateur films of nineteen seventies New York, to the birth of the Hollywood-like productions of the seventies to the eighties (Deep Throat, The Devil In Miss Jones), to the invention of gonzo in the early nineties by John Stalgiano, to mid to late nineteen nineties “shock” Jerry Springer-esque Baywatch knock off exploitation genre such as that of JM Productions (always with a golem of a man bedding a double D platinum blonde model for the construction crew construct of American masculinity), to the zenith of the Golden Era with models like Jenna Jameson or Brianna Banks, to the early two-thousands Jackass-like WWE sex-competition style of porn with young women raised on Britney Spears (the hubris of unfettered capitalism of the early Bush Era translating into the proletariat aspiring for a better life in the shadows of the Hollywood Hills and Paris Hilton), to the quasi avant-garde movement with Sasha Grey’s reading of existentialism coinciding with a generation of millennials – the first generation raised with social media – free from college and living in cities during a Recession (living their own HBO drama series), to the Alt Witchy scene of Joanna Angel, to the acceptance of BDSM after the popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey (popularizing sites such as Kink), to the full actualization of democratized pornography with the invention of Hubs, Only Fans, “Link in Bio” within Instagram pages, etc., I’ve seen it all.
It is a personal and entertaining thing that people watch for an array of reasons from dealing with stress, dealing with horniness, boredom, curiosity, etc. Yet, America does still have a childish Brady Bunch morality relating to it, which is hypocritical considering the “mainstream economy” has used sexuality to push products for the capitalist machine. If anything conservatism is highly lowkey sexual, I mean just see all the IG bikini cowgirl models with Bible quotes shooting guns and still hung up that Obama won and who praise Trump.
I can honestly state that pornography helped me grow, but I do respect and like that it is “over there”, i.e., it’s not something I’m in but somewhere that I can travel to. Raised a Christian Protestant and made to feel guilty about sexual urges for fear damnation, to overcoming my young twenty’s feelings of misogyny as I learned to appreciate feminism (non-cringe), to simply learning to mind my own business and understand that people have their own preferences which might not be mine (yet, I have my own) but if there’s consent, safety, and pleasure, then go at it, have fun.
There are many strong women in the porn industry I respect such as legendary Nina Hartley, Joanna Angel, Ginger Lynn (who overcame a lot of personal trauma), etc. The types I would like to talk to about life in general rather that turning them into a sexual object. Women are more than sex, but sex being a straight male from them, is a joy. A real man accepts and acknowledges this. Yet, it seems that sex, being something that all humans crave, typically drowns out the more pressing issues at hand regarding feminism on an international scale, e.g., with the internet being global, the Western viewpoint of pornography which might be more nuanced, might not translate well to developing nations under the yoke of patriarchy which does use violence. For example, what a Western woman might find appealing might be helping to oppress women in developing nations living under older notions of gender roles, yet, this is not the Western woman’s fault, but just a reality of the complexity of the diverse world we live in.
But to the point of this paper. I was reading the news and saw a curious case about a male porn star who was caught in a gun running Neo Nazi ring in which this ring was plotting to kill Black Lives Matter protestors. Even if you do not personally agree with BLM (why you would not is beyond me), we must remember that Nazism is not only racist towards anyone not white (it’s pretty brutal towards white people as well considering the Nazis murdered plenty Germans and other Europeans) but is also sexist/misogynist, homophobic, transphobic, anti-free speech, anti-art, etc.
According to Joseph Wilkerson (2021) of New York Daily News, Paul Kryscuk, a male pornstar was arrested on interstate gun trafficking charges in a ring with three US Marines, in which Kryscuk, held video tapped training sessions near his Boise, Idaho home depicting themselves saying “Heil Hitler” under a Black Sun flag. I heard this story when it came out, but it faded away, but surfing around online, I stumbled upon a video by a site called “Abuse Her”. Not my type of stuff. It is pretty messed up content to be honest and I am surprised it is online. Women are spit upon, gagged, throw up in dog bowls, inserted roughly, slapped, choked, cry, etc.
Seeing people broken is not pleasurable. It is sadistic. Yet, has sadism from males become this sort of “top shelf” drug for some females? One way domination is not too appealing, personally. Sex is a symbiosis; however, I do feel that being men, there is a psychological satisfaction in slight dominance, i.e., leading the way. This site is like another borderline illegal series called Slap Happy featuring Brandon Irons who was known for his indifference and misogynistic comments. The genre of “revenge porn” is not something that I never got into, though I understand it has a following across genders. Morals aside, it is not my thing. Even the simulation of assault is unacceptable. To me, the angry “revenge” notion of porn is something a guy might go through in his twenties as he tries to succeed with the opposite sex (and fails), but it is something that one should grow out of, but even so, this level of content is unacceptable. It might also be something that women desire because the arena of pornography being a controlled spaces, lets women simulate something in a controllable way, they fear they might be exposed to without consent.
What is sad about Abuse Her is… these actresses, who are of all races and religions, probably had no clue about Paul Kryscuk political beliefs, and honestly were probably indifferent to varying degree, since pornography is about money mostly. Being a guy, I know the spectrum of men and there are a lot of dirt-bags out there, ladies. Straight up. Men who simply hate, mock, and disrespect women. However, I do understand that getting experiences is a part of the formula. But Paul Kryscuk not only performed with the stereotypical “fresh off the bus” type of model new to Los Angeles, but he worked with veteran actresses such as Nina Hartley who is Jewish.
But a Neo Nazi roughly having anal sex and ejaculating on women’s faces, particularly in content that is depicting male dominance and shaming women… is just sad, honestly. It is easy to blame the men collectively as being soulless, and for those with “souls” to be “simps” “betas”, etc., but f-cking ex-convicts with some skills at video editing (with notable spider web tattoos over their elbows), shows how indifferent people are, including the women. It would be easy to say this is all an example of patriarchy, but we must remember that these women voluntarily participated in this content, knowing the impact on the perception of females, feminism, etc. This is where the curiosity comes from, I believe when many people watch porn, but I am speaking for myself (but maybe you can relate). They (I) are asking themselves (myself) why? They ask themselves this to understand to toughen their mindset from chaos. Sure, not every woman has to be a feminist if she does not want to. Sure, actors are not responsible for the political beliefs of content creators or consumers, but still… at the end of the day, these men, particularly this Neo Nazi was able continue old legacy of white supremacy, i.e., white male entitlement regardless of how regressive their beliefs are, to have the pleasure of women of all races without criticism (though if people of other colors do the same thing the behavior is stigmatized), while also making most of the profits. These profits in this case likely were going towards supporting an underground economy of illegal guns meant for the purpose of killing liberals, progressives, leftists, minorities, etc. It sounds like Zoolander, but this is no laughing matter. It reminds me of the action movie Heat in which a character who is a Neo Nazi, murders a black sex worker after having sex with her.
Paul Kryscuk is the epitome of white supremacy, white cynicism, and white privilege, and he was able to be in an industry that attracts many young women – for various reasons, e.g., economic reasons, life experiences, etc., – on the notion of sexual feminism. Is sexual feminism exposing the people it claims to be supporting to mockery at the hands of people who outside of porn want to commit racial, sexual, religious, and gender-oriented violence? Granted, I do understand that I am attacking a broad concept by calling out sexual feminism in this specific regard. Many sex-positive feminists are adamant about self-respect. So, who I am angry at here?
I think it is more so anger at our society at large with it being a capitalist system that breeds disparity but also breeds insecurity as people are brainwashed into conspicuous consumption, seeing it as a gauge of economic mobility, yet this same capitalist system appropriates concepts like sexual feminism (of any counter culture) to hide its inherently exploitative core. I am sure there are many people who would do sex work for free, but to be honest, most do it for money. Money that is going towards expensive college education in a system where Big Business requires people to obtain it without Big Business offering much assistance. The money is going towards inflated real estate prices propped up by Central Banks, speculators, and gentrification. The money is going towards helping loved ones who might not have great healthcare insurance. The money is going towards feeding children in which women and/or couples (including men) do not have access to reproductive health/family planning services. But the money is also going to waste. Waste on items that lose value the moment they are purchased and in many cases were created from exploited labor elsewhere.
But, as a reminder, I am not shaming women.
Have we become so nihilistic and indifferent as a society that actors like Kryscuk can snake their way into arenas perceived as more liberal in nature and exploit others? I hate to write this as if I am shaming women, but women are past the point of ignorance or “I just didn’t know”. Kryscuk and his gang were spotted observing Black Lives Matter protests in Boise and this was during a time in the nation when extremist groups such as Boogaloo murdered two law enforcement officers, a militia in Michigan attempted a kidnapping on the female Governor, rising levels of hate crimes, etc. It seems our hyper capitalist, overly cerebral, interconnected reality has created something akin to the sinister tone underneath the seemingly comedic vibe of a postmodern author. We live in complete chaos, yet it is a chaos of necessity, in that people are doing what they have to do to survive in constructed systems built on exploiting us all. Humans laboring to survive in an indifferent world who barter our own integrity to get by in a country of abhorrent wealth disparity, corporatism, draconian law and order, gentrification, etc., but it all distills in culture wars, thus disuniting the proletariat. I do not blame women, but I do admit that it is incredibly sad.
But what I mean by sadness is not some emotion response, but rather something that reminds me at least that we truly are in a void. Some sort of plane between things that is beyond our mental comprehension. “Meat puppets”, biological robots, with the capacity to feel, who might back to the conclusion that we aren’t simply slaves to ourselves in a cold vast universe, feeding off each other’s energy, because we’re “sad”. Something I feel Rush Cohle from True Detective might muse on.
I see Abuse Her.com as a detriment to women’s empowerment, all the hard work, etc. There is this notion that fantasy is not reality, but the truth is fantasy is inescapable from reality. No matter how existential, angry, nihilistic, empowered a person is on their ‘do what thy whilst’ journey, the individual, in this case the performer regardless of gender or orientation, has no control over how people will see them and usurp their value for their own purposes. A person can literally be masturbating to a woman for free and still vote for initiatives that enslaves her.
Yet, what I have come to realize is that women to an extent see such degrading content as…empowering. Some sort of challenge against their worst fear, their philosophical and ideological antagonist. It’s not only a challenge but also a reverse sort of psychological warfare through a moral dilemma back into the face of those who watch it.
To be honest one reason I watch porn is to toughen myself up. But I do consider it as art whether it be a fun film set on some B-cult classic knock off or sci-fi oriented movie, to something that is truly well-written and thought provoking. Something private. Something for adults that adults can handle. It is odd I know to admit this, but to me it is as if I like to ponder that a person, I see on screen could be any person walking by me in the real world. What is funny is, this is the case. There is something empowering and progressive to know that this person on film is a person elsewhere. They have dreams, goals, aspirations. They are more dimensional than just a sex object, and as a result it humanizes the experience for me. I empathize and respect. Part of me wants to say to a female performer, is “I don’t judge you. If anything, you helped me grow”.
But what this Neo Nazi situation means to me is that the sex industry needs to be normalized. The more normalized it becomes the safer of a space it becomes. People can be better vetted for their personal beliefs. Revenues can be better taxed to help society. I have heard stories from strippers saying they cannot buy a house since banks want to see pay stubs and many establishments do not give checks, but it is all cash. This is a problem. Considering taxpayers bailed out banks but banks oddly still shame sex workers on the lowkey. Hub sites should pay performers for residuals. If a million people even pay one penny for a watch, and that video gets a million views, that could translate to income for past performers at $10,000.00. The imagine investing that money in a trust fund with compound interest. The industry should have criminal background investigations (I am sure the standard studios do), on top of contract agreements where racism, sexism, etc., are banned and violation means disbarment from work, and such individuals would be ousted though the social grapevine. Yet, for modern content creators out there, I want to say that I do respect you, but you do have great power, so protect yourself and vet those who give the privilege of your bodies.
