Politics of Sex Censorship PodcastIf you think the latest round of internet censorship doesn’t affect you, think again. Social media TOS changes, Visa/MasterCard halting services on Pornhub, and Section 230 being wrapped up in our COVID relief bills affect not only sex censorship but everyone who uses the internet. What happens when sexual assault survivors can’t easily search for resources because the word “sex” is no longer permitted on social media? How do LGBTQ+ youth with no one to turn to find support when activists & educators are being silenced? How do we create change if we’re not allowed to organize social movements on social media? Why is the US government attacking legal sex work sites like Only Fans–the one income source so many marginalized people have turned to during the pandemic? On ep 151 of American Sex Podcast, you’ll learn how all these issues are interrelated and have unsuspecting dark origins.

    I love this podcast so much, but this episode blew me away. The potential for silencing important information about sexuality, safety, health, relationships, and related subjects is mind-boggling. Please consider doing a quarterly update on the state of internet censorship.
