What porn is, and isn’t, for the industry to survive: Porn, after all, is just one of the ways the industry’s financial success depends on its popularity and visibility.
But it’s also one of those ways that the industry is the most vulnerable to a potential boycott, as evidenced by the way it has been targeted in recent weeks by some of the biggest names in the industry, including former porn star Alexa Nova.
Nova, a former porn model and a longtime advocate for gender equality in the adult industry, said on Twitter that she was “disgusted” by the “shocking, misogynistic” comments made by the top three porn stars of the industry.
Nova said she’d like to see the industry change, and said she hopes she can convince one of them to “do the right thing.”
But for now, she’s taking it one step at a time.
Nova’s petition to boycott all of the porn companies she believes are “selling violence and sexual exploitation to children” has attracted over 4,500 signatures, which she hopes to reach as soon as next week.
The petition is part of a wider effort by the feminist porn group Pornhub to demand change in the porn business, which is a major source of revenue for the adult film industry.
Pornhub, which owns adult movie site Vivid, has been the target of criticism in recent years for its controversial advertising, including the recent removal of a campaign by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and other New York politicians that urged people to “take action.”
The campaign, which was later reinstated, also included a photo of porn star Jenna Jameson that had been taken in a private moment and had been captioned “just one girl, one pussy.”
But the campaign was criticized for its tone and messaging, and for its inclusion of celebrities like the “Dirty Minds” star Toni Braxton and actress Mia Khalifa, who are also members of the Sex Pistols.
Nova told The Hollywood Reporter that she thinks that the porn stars who have been targeted by the boycott campaign are “disgraceful” and “outrageous” for continuing to promote and advertise violence against women and children.
The porn industry is a business, and that’s something that should be kept secret from the general public, Nova said.
But she hopes the porn community will “do something that will really change the culture” and make porn more acceptable for mainstream audiences.
The hashtag #PornHatersHype has been trending in recent days on Twitter, with users posting photos of themselves with porn stars or posing with the tag.
Some have even been calling the industry a “cult.”
“We’re not here to tell you how to be a man, a woman, or whatever, but we’re here to educate you,” Nova said of the hashtag.
“I’m going to be the first to admit that I’ve never been a big fan of the sex industry, but I just wanted to get this out there to see what’s going on.
I’m not against all the sex workers, but you have to be open-minded and aware of what’s happening in this industry.”
Nova said that she plans to go public with her petition by Thursday, which has more than 11,000 signatures.
She plans to post her petition online, along with a link to her petition on Pornhub’s website.
PornHub has more employees than the entire adult film division of Amazon, and has more subscribers than the combined audience of Netflix and Hulu.
Porn is a $2 billion industry that has grown by about 70 percent annually since 2000, according to data from research firm comScore.
It’s estimated that more than $5 billion in revenue is generated each year by its porn business.
Nova called the porn boycott campaign “an attack on the porn we love,” but noted that “some people” may not be willing to take action.
“They don’t want to see it as a boycott,” she said.
“Some people will feel like that’s a ‘bad move’ or that’s ‘not right’ or something.
I don’t think it’s right for the porn audience, but that’s what I think it is.
If there’s no response, then it’s a little bit easier to say, ‘We’re gonna continue to do what we’re doing.'”
Nova is part, and part not of the boycott.
She has not spoken to the other three top performers in the world in weeks, and plans to not talk to anyone who has.
“The thing I do think is, the porn I love, I’m so lucky to have in this world,” Nova told Bleacher View.
“If we stop doing that, then what’s left?
Do I have a career?
Do you want to be here?
So if there’s something we can do to bring some sanity to the industry in general, I’d love to do it.
It would be a huge boost for the entire industry.”
