LOS ANGELES — APAG has announced a series of free virtual discussions, titled “APAG Talks,” to be held on XBIZ TV. The first installment is set for October 16, titled “Porn Stars Teaching Parents How to Talk About Porn.”
“As performers in the industry and parents in our daily lives, we navigate through the same challenges other parents encounter, including the awkward conversation about the birds and the bees,” an APAG rep explained.
“As parents, the conversation about porn, a theatrical display of intimacy, not only involves an explanation, but should require a plan to prevent exposure,” continued the rep. “In recent months, we have witnessed political leaders from both sides discussing their ideas of how they would approach this subject with their families. When those ideas included showing adult material to children under 14, we decided it was time to teach the world how parents in porn keep their kids safe. As parents in these films, we not only worry about our kids accessing porn, we also have to navigate them away from finding images of ourselves. We accomplish this with a respectful, age-appropriate and honest conversation about porn.”
Panelists will include members of APAG, medical and mental health experts and other industry professionals. Future installments of “APAG Talks” will be released biweekly on XBIZ TV.
“As the union for performers in the adult industry, APAG’s advocacy and organizing efforts have covered everything from racism to consent,” the rep continued. “We are excited to share our knowledge in order to help protect and educate our families and our communities.”
