Whether you like it or not, pornography is all prevailing. There is no clear definition for the term ‘pornography”. It is more of a sexual matter for the sole purpose of sexual arousal. But a more specified definition would be pornography is a sexual content produced for the sexual arousal of consumers, produced distributed with the consent of all parties involved. The proliferation of smartphones and the internet has sea changed the production and distribution of sexually explicated videos and pictures. When someone selfies the naked body or sexual activity and sends it to an individual or group, it is known as Sexting. There is always consent in this activity.
Contrasting to Sexting, revenge porn is distributed or publicized on an adult entertainment web without the person’s consent. The ruthless person breaches all parameters of trust by sharing those intimate moments in the public domain, which was supposed to be private and confidential. The vengeful person publishes those sexual sequences on the revenge porn website with contact detail of the portrayed person and links to their social media. When a crooked adult publishes a sex image of a child on a website, it is known as child porn. This act draws severe criminal proceedings, as a child cannot lawfully give consent. Once these scenes come into the digital platform, it perpetually destroys the emotional, public image of the victim. Find more info about child porn over here.
Revenge porn and child porn are both devious, criminal acts and must be differentiated from consensual pornography. There are vicious, violent sexual content produced and distributed with consent from the parties. There can be bondage, BDSM, dominance, but mostly produced after the actors’ written consent. But you will find a plethora of dominant sex panorama with no apparent verification of consent. Hypothetically, it is possible to know if consent was taken or averted to produce and distribute these videos. But child porn and revenge porn are unequivocal instances of non-consent sexual abuse.
Content that are produced and distributed without consent must be termed as sexual abuse material rather than pornography. Some government authorities recommended that non-consensual material refer to online sex abuse: words matter and consent matter more.
