‘First, the use of the phrase ‘torture porn’ makes me doubt the impartiality of this reporter’ (NSFW)

WARNING — GRAPHIC SEXUAL CONTENT:

“Torture porn” is a highly-specialized, heavily-loaded attack phrase. It’s used chiefly by anti-porn activists. It’s never used by BDSM performers.

Nobody in the commercial porn world uses the word “torture”, not least because it’s commercial death (credit card billers will yank your processing if you use it to describe your porn product).

I find it highly unlikely that a Kink.com performer uttered those words unless there was an axe being heavily ground.

So if the reporter (Adrian Chen) chose to put his own judgmental phrase into the mouth of a source presented as basically neutral, how far can the rest of the story be trusted?
