GBA 312 Pandora Blake by Getting Better Acquainted published on 2017-10-04T09:07:56Z In GBA 312 we get better acquainted with Pandora Blake. They talk about how they became an award-winning feminist porn producer and performer, the rise and fall of their website Dreams of Spanking that was dedicated to ethically-produced BDSM erotica that prioritised gender diversity, explicit behind the scenes enthusiastic consent, and equal pay for equal work. With a wide lens they get into some of the issues around sex work law reform, censorship, obscenity law, sexual freedom and ethical/feminist porn. And in close up they talk about emerging from a few years of turmoil, change, transformation and transition, with new possibilities on the horizon and with a new understanding of their gender.
