Image carries undeniable power: we think in images, we dream in images, we fantasize in images.  It is no wonder pornography captivates us.  The primal image of bodies involved in sex is rich to our imaginations even when it is poorly executed or, worse, non-consensual.  Sadly, much of the pornography available on the internet is either unscrupulously made or at least suspiciously devoid of clear consent and ethical working conditions.

Thankfully, access to ethically created pornography has increased dramatically in the past decade!  Check out these sites, and if you have a favorite performer go directly to their website, many have great options for buying their images fairly.  Most importantly, let’s remember that sex work is work, and shame has no place anywhere near it.

http://pinkwhite.biz Pink and White Productions offers several different options for the ethical pornography enthusiast. The popular CrashPad Series, for instance features queer and body-positive scenes well worth a watch, especially if you seek a change from the narrow depictions in mainstream pornography. Full length films, breakout directors, and award-winning shots make for a diverse collection.

https://spit.exposed Spit is an subscription-based alternative to mainstream porn with a wild edge and an incredibly queer-friendly and body-positive angle. Films, photos, and erotica are exquisitely curated to provide a library of sexy options when the mood strikes.

https://xconfessions.com Erica Lust’s site is a subscription to the artistic pornographic films you always wished existed. Rich narrative supports the films, many of which are created from the anonymous fantasy confessions sent in to be beautifully acted out under the direction of a consummate filmmaker.

http://brightdesire.com/tour/ Bright Desire is a subscription service that provides access to video, still shot, and masturbation voice-over erotica. Feminist values held by the filmmaker bring a different edge to the medium. The pieces often focus on the delicious everyday details of sexual encounters: laughter, exploration, the unfolding of a story without pretense.

https://makelovenotporn.tv Make Love Not Porn occupies the space between performance sex and amateur filming, where people submit content which viewers rent; the company curates the submissions to ensure they contain contextualized, enthusiastic, and consensual sex. MLNP then splits the $5 rental fee with the people who made the film, allowing for a more egalitarian earnings structure for those interested in sharing their hot moments with the world.
