Please read our about page for our mission statement and more.

On gender

One of the goals of Freedom Porn is to destroy the conceptualisation of gender all together. Sure some people chose to identify as one gender or another, some people's gender forms the integral part of their self identity and social role. However, this is not the reason to treat people of different genders unequally or to force them into some strict categories that they may or may not wish to conform to. Because of that Freedom Porn allows people to express any part of their gender identity or lack thereof in creating of pornography, it is up to the model, author, and artist to decide on what they want to portray in their creative smut.

On sexuality

Sexuality is much more than a few predetermined kinks and sexual orientation. Freedom Porn will not represent any sexual behaviour as a commodity that can be sold or as a deviation to be labelled. There are as many forms of sexuality as there are individuals alive, and there can be many more, as our sexualities are fluid and constantly changing. Everybody, those who create and those who receive pornography, bring something new to the mix, and that is wonderful.

On rape

Rape and sexual abuse are not caused by depictions of sex, no matter what anti-sex lobby and media establishment want us to believe. They are caused by the culture of non-consensual domination, enslavement, and degradation of our existence. No matter how violent or aggressive, and no matter how passive or submissive, a sex act is, it is different to rape in every aspect. “Rape games”, BDSM, and other forms of sex play are very much acceptable in an ethical and radical society and as a result are acceptable on Freedom Porn; but no depiction of non-consensual abuse as something “natural” and therefore acceptable will be given platform here (there are many other places which already show this).

On body type

Today's society is obsessed about body types. This is obvious to anybody who lives and notices what is going on around them, but needs to be repeated again, just to make it clear that Freedom Porn accepts sexual expression regardless of body types portrayed. We need to all get to the point where we are comfortable with how we look, as for most individuals their body determines a large part of their self identity.

On free speech

Creating and distributing depiction of sexuality is as much a form of expression as talking, singing, chanting, or demonstrating; in fact often it can become something even more direct, especially when the subject deals with the areas that are difficult to express in asexual manner. While it is true that free speech implies that people should have the right not to listen, Freedom Porn is not forcing anybody to view what is presented here, people come here willingly and express themselves or view others expressing themselves with the full understanding what they are doing.

On experimentation

Free speech implies experimentation and original approaches (so does sexuality, but it is impossible to put section in two places). Expect that from what you see here, and feel free to experiment if you have something to add to the project.

On sex work

Commodity exchange economics have created the idea of sex work. Sex, even perverted, violent, or DS sex, is not a negative thing; the capitalist society, on the other hand, is something to be opposed. Freedom Porn supports all the sex workers, regardless of whether or not they have joined willingly or unwillingly. Freedom Porn supports the abolition of capitalism and other hierarchical systems, which is the only coherent way to abolish sex work without stigmatisation of those involved in it currently.

On money

Freedom Porn is in no way a money-making exercise. In fact it runs by losing the money at a rapid pace, as web hosting does require the transfer the digital equivalents of the little green pieces of paper. You can donate to the project if you wish to help, but more important would be to contribute in the other ways.

On advertisement

It would seem that advertisement is the easy way to raise the funds to help to raise the funds. However, most of the money from advertisement will not go to this project and would go to support unethical corporations which strengthen this society's negative aspects. Therefore, the only advertisements that you will see here comes from the Mutual Ads campaign to advertise radical and revolutionary sites of all sorts with no monetary exchange.

On participation

Anybody who shares the politics and goals of Freedom Porn can participate in the project; however, people who wish to use their participation to spread the ideas that are discriminatory or puritanistic will have to look for other venues for their ideas. This is not a form of censorship of those ideas, in fact Freedom Porn will link to some of the venues where such views are raised (as those venues often constitute the “neighbourhood” in which we exist). When you participate in the project, you and only the people you allow will have artistic freedom to do as you see fit in creation of the sexual expression of your inner self through erotic and pornographic medium.

On FLOSS

For a full article on that see Free/Libre Open Source Software.

As a result of the views on participation it is the intention of Freedom Porn to use Free Libre Open Source Software and open standards wherever possible. This may initially create minor difficulties for the viewers, especially those who do not recognise digital freedom to be an important aspect of their lives and continue to use the software created by the likes of Mircosoft or Apple. Using propriatary software will in no way be blocked or artificially restricted, but the support will be given only for those packages or software that is written in an ethical and freedom-respecting way.
