This will be a weird way to start off my series of posts, but I've been intending to write this for a while, now. While the adult film industry is still a taboo topic in most social circles, it's become much more mainstream and socially accepted over the years. There are still frequent complaints from groups such as Women's Rights Activists and Christian Fundamentalists, but the industry has been vital to society since the beginning of hieroglyphics.
I could go on about porn, but I'm going to focus particularly on one person by the name of Veronica Avluv. In my opinion, she has played a part in revolutionizing the adult film industry. I will even go so far as to say she is a modern-day hero of feminism.
For anyone who's watched adult films over the past few years, you may have noticed a subtle yet enormous change in the way the "scenes" play out. Instead of women displaying themselves to leering men who bribe them into taking their clothes off, the spotlight has shifted toward the woman's character. Mainstream releases nowadays usually involve strong women who take charge of their sexuality and know exactly what they want. Veronica is no exception to this trend. In fact, she is the poster girl for this trend.
Veronica Avluv is a shining example of what it is for a woman to be in complete control of her sexual identity. She always is a take-charge woman who makes any male (or female) on the set her slave. While some women grieve that they are no longer 20, Veronica boasts about it and wears it like a badge of honor. She wields her experience like a weapon, showing off what she can do and blowing the audience away (no pun intended) every single time.
I applaud Veronica Avluv, not as a great porn star, but as a great woman. She's a hero to women who think their age restricts their rights to express themselves sexually. She's a hero to mothers who would do anything to support their children and give them a bright future. Even though it's made leaps and bounds, the adult film industry can still be cruel and cold, but Veronica proves that a strong woman can face any obstacle and continue to do what she loves. Say what you will about the merits of porn, but there is no doubt in my mind that Veronica Avluv deserves an immense amount of respect and admiration.
