Stoya speaks about pornography, #metoo and SESTA-FOSTA law during the Wired Next Fest in Italy
Stoya, pornographic actress, producer and director, was invited to the Wired Next Fest, the Italian festival celebrating science, technology and innovation, to talk about the contamination between pornography and every aspect of life other than sexuality.
Go watch the video of the interview because it’s the ultimate portrayal of Italian prejudice, superficiality and false prudery when it comes to sexuality.
The opening line “The next guest is a pornstar but […]” is just a prelude to the prejudice through which the interviewer will address Stoya in a blur of questions spit out in poor English.
With smartness, endless patience and brilliant sense of humour Stoya provided an overview of pornography in today’s world and talked about the SESTA-FOSTA bill putting sex workers at risk.
She also talked about ZeroSpaces.com, her freshly launched sexually explicit media project that “aims at the gap between “mainstream” and erotic or explicit material, and fosters a connection to the people—the living, breathing humans—who create the work that is consumed.”
at the Italian Diversity Media Awards that recognise outstanding representations of the LGBT community in media.
