The Dildorks are a couple of sex journalist/bloggers that created a podcast where they discuss sex, kink and everything in between.
I recently made a blog called YourPornHun where I wanted to critique porn and make reaction videos etc. I wanted to point out potentially harmful practices in porn as well as highlight its benefits. I wanted to create a place where porn is criticised fairly and not just vilified. Feminism moving forward needs to be intersectional and this means we need to give female porn stars autonomy and stop assuming women are forced into the sex industry because of childhood trauma or poverty. I think this is what I enjoy about some of the podcasts created by Dildorks. When they speak about sex and porn etc they give women the power to make their own choices. Radical feminists just believe that anyone in the sex industry is their because they cant.
I have not gotten round to posting on that blog yet as I created another one which has taken up most of my time recently and when I listened to this podcast a couple of days a go i realised I had been beaten to it!
