French Porn Star Erupts At Macron For "Demonizing" Adult Film Industry

A French porn star and adult film director has lashed out at French President Emmanuel Macron, accusing him of "demonizing the porn industry" after the French leader said pornography is to blame for turning women into an "object of humiliation." Ferrara challenged the French president to meet with him and female porn actresses after France's leader aroused his anger by linking the porn industry to violence against women and inequality. According to The Local, Ferrara was furious over the president's speech over the weekend which outlined Macron's plan to tackle violence against women and ensure equality between the sexes.

Marking the International Day for Elimination of Violence Against Women, Macron spoke at the Elysee Palace on Saturday, warning that “pornography has made its way into schools" and promised that an "awareness campaign for parents will be launched at the next school year" in his speech,

Ferrara hit back on Twitter and invited the president to discuss the issue. "I am involved in this industry that you are trying to demonize by making this kind of remark. I am ready to sit down with you and discuss a topic that by all accounts you know nothing about. I'm waiting for your call!"

The actor also told Franceinfo that the French president’s stance on pornography is “shocking.” According to Ferrara, “Macron says what people want to hear", which of course makes him a good politician.  "There is a big part of porn that does not humiliate the woman," Ferrara noted, adding that in any case, X-rated movies are not made for educational purposes, but for entertainment only.

In an interview with France Inter radio the porn star continued his criticism of the president: "He demonizes the porn industry and is jumping to conclusions. It's the same with video games. It's like saying 'a teenager who plays Call of Duty is going to pick up a gun and kill everyone in his school'." He also said that the problem of teenagers watching adult films on their smartphones and tablets is “not the fault of the porn industry.”

"The real problem is that access to all these porn sites is for free or it just takes to mark ‘I'm 18’ to gain access. There, the government needs to take measures so that these free sites are not as easily accessible, as is the case in other countries. And then, there is a personal responsibility of the parents too. I am a father and I make sure that my children do not have access to any pornography. I block everything on computers, phones and tablets. It could be that these objects should not be taken to school at all."

Ferrara urged Macron to also talk to women involved in the pornography industry, to ask them what they think.

In addition to the proposed pornography awareness campaign, Macron announced his plan to extend the powers of France's broadcasting regulator CSA to cover X-rated films: "The CSA plays an indispensable role in regulating audiovisual content everywhere and stopping the most undignified behavior becoming a form of tacit propaganda" the president said.

"Today we do not regulate access to video games, internet content and pornographic content that is increasingly available."

Macron threatened that in 2018, "under the authority of the Prime Minister and with the special commitment of the Minister of Justice, we will have to rethink the framework of our regulation," vowing to tighten controls on all content "which can... lead to violence, in particular against the women."

Porn is entertainment, it is in demand, and it will never go away.The main counter-argument to porn is that it teaches young men a twisted view of women, but that can be countered easily by attentive parents.As for the women who choose to act in the porn industry, good for them, I hope they make a zillion from it.  As for the women who do not choose to act in the porn industry, good for them, I applaud their choice in maintaining privacy.Now, can the politicians pay attention to something important? <edit - meanwhile, sure, I'll click on the pretty pictures, show me more, Tyler.>

I am going to agree with you to a point (upvoted). The "porn" I was raised with (the raciest crap being Penthouse and the movies still with a lot of hair down under) seemed somewhat tame compared to what is pushed now. And, you are right, both my parents and clergy made it out to be wrong. They were right.Porn these days totally objectifies women. I cannot watch anything that has been put out in the past 20 years.

Geebus what a bunch of bible thumping.  Only in the USA is such White Knightery so rampant.Women are vial disgusting beasts on their own accord.  Porn does nothing to changes that.Oh I love pussy but I must say I'm ambivalent about women.  They are simple mechanisms to hack and you can get all the pussy you want if you know how.  These days I find money more interesting.

Perhaps you’ believe women are vial disgusting beasts because you can’t satisfy them sexually. But that’s okay, women won’t label you a limp ass just because of that. They’ll probably label you that because of the stupid things you say.

Plenty of men can satisfy women, you know. They also are not so insecure that they have to blame all of their problems on them AND they choose the RIGHT women so they don’t end up thinking the way you do.

If I understand you correctly, that’s TERRIBLE! I’m not saying men shouldn’t satisfy women, and vice versa of course they should. Why wouldn’t they want to, it’s hot. But let’s get real, why friggin judge, we all have human bodies after all! Who does that type think she is, Scarlett Johansson? Wait’ll she hits 50, boy is she ever going to be in for a big surprise. Okay, now I get the “conditional beasts” remarks. Geeze, I’m sorry guys, I mean that because:

I came back to apologize to the guy in this thread I bashed. All these articles got me curious. I FINALLY watched the Trump tape in full (I was never interested since the Democrats refused to condem Billy boy.) I CANNOT BELIEVE THEY ARE MAKING SUCH A FUSS OVER THAT TAPE!! I cannot believe NBC fired Billy Bush over it!!! Oh it’s okay for NBC to protect a Hollywood rapist but gawd forbid two men engage in sexual banter! Are they SERIOUS!?! What is being done to you poor guys!?!

Dudes, I’m sorry. I’m an old fart. I had no idea this may be the crap you’ve been having to put up with. PLEASE know you’re dating the WRONG girls! Is THIS what feminism got us? I believe in men respecting women, I always have and always will, but what the hell is going on out there?!? Did we stop being sexual creatures!?!

Women only become beasts when men allow them to become that by being pussies themselves.  Sure they are 'hacked' without much effort   just a willingness to spend money on them and giving off the illusion that you will continue spending money (if you have charm and aren't a fat cheap fuck like me  all the easier). Women look for security (its biological) at the end of the day and nowadays that means mostly money and no one should blame them for that.  The problem is men not turning bitches loose for not upholding what was expected of women 50+ years ago.

For the most part, Buzzard, you’re right. But I don’t get your last sentence. Fifty years ago was the 60’s. Was ANYTHING expected of women in the 60’s? Now if you’re talking about the 50’s, you can’t be serious, dude! You want an uptight woman who was taught sex is bad? A woman who has no knowledge in truly satisfying a man or herself? A woman who has no personal interests so she has to cling to your interests like a dog? Why, just because she can vacuum?

Men should turn bitches loose that aren’t their type, even if it’s something as simple as wanting a house cleaner. What’s wrong with that? Why live in the past? Why not assume a woman that loves taking care of her man is as modern as the woman executive?

I can remember when men used to apologize if they cursed in the presence of a lady, not seeing her. Today, women (not ladies) can curse a blue streak themselves. I guess that's what you would call "progress".  Anytime you eliminate God, men will fall to the lowest level they can possibly go, so kick Bible thumping if you must, but rmember that there wouldn't be a Western Civilization without Christianity.

Macron's wife.. maybe he isn't MILF porn?  Who knows maybe young women porn is all against freedom and such.. but looking at the age difference he is seriously into the MILF genre (oh yes I went there) lulz

Well using that logic, I will say Christianity (well, all organized religions) is to blame for turning humans into complete brainwashed morons. I guess the gun industry is also to blame for turning people into killers.No doubt Macron is an avid porn watcher...
