    Opposing Views: Pornhub

    Opposing Views: Pornhub

    Welcome to the Mikhaila Peterson Podcast. This is a bit of a different style episode. A couple of months ago there was big news about PornHub. Visa and Mastercard dropped them for apparently hosting child pornography PornHub removed ten million videos. I decided to have a couple of people on to discuss whether or not porn and sex work is dangerous, harmful, and addictive or whether it’s a natural thing that should be decriminalized and even encouraged. I had no idea there is a war going on between pro-porn and anti-porn people and this PornHub case shed a lot of light on that. I thought it would be nice to see opposing views on a controversial topic given the fact that we are usually isolated from opposing views, which is causing serious problems at the moment. 
    I spoke first with Haley McNamara, VP at the National Centre for Sexual Exploitation. Haley’s nonprofit is largely responsible for bringing this issue with PornHub and child pornography into the public eye and getting over ten million videos for unverified users removed in September 2020.
    The second half of the episode is with Dr. Nicole Prause, a neuroscientist who researches human sexual behavior, addiction, and the physiology of sexual response. She’s also the founder of Libros LLC, an independent research institute.
    These people have pretty much completely opposing views, so it was a very interesting contrast of conversations. This is the first episode like this. Let me know if you find this opposing viewpoint type of podcast interesting, I may do more of these episodes.

Interesting & informative

Came here for the carnivore, but the podcast extends beyond just diet and nutrition. Interesting content for the open-minded.
