Four Chambers

Four Chambers
Today the patreon account of fourchambers - a wonderful hub of creativity, sexuality, inclusivity, safety for sex workers and progress within porn had declared that they will be shut off from their platform. This means in practice that Vex the founder and her team, will, for the foreseeable future have no direct income from their craft. The mission of companies like fourchambers is in essence, creative progression, equality and workers rights. In this case the rights of sex workers. In the wash of FOSTA/SESTA it's abundantly clear that major platforms will not be standing up for workers equality. This form of destructive conservative that consumes women at present, who censure their nipples, tells us we are fundamentally corrupt and immoral by mere possession of a body (men's nipples have free reign on major platforms) means that we are in essence becoming engulfed by this puritanical point of view. Here I have included an image of one of my best friends as a martyr, a symbolic gesture to the current struggle we face. Today I find myself appalled and tired in the up the uphill struggle of censorship. If you believe in free speech or if you are a socialist and believe in workers rights, the absence or removal of platforms likes this is a major concern. It's far time we discussed this more often, to form a safe place for ourselves and build something beautiful away from the clout of conservatism. NB- After posting this on instagram, my completely censored nude was removed and I was alerted to the fact that they had considered my post a violation of their guidelines, when it was in fact in complete compliance. I am left to assume that the content of my protest is the contention. What is to be done? DSC08405
