Anyone want to go on the BBC's big question to talk about porn on 28th Jan

Hi Everyone, I got this email but I'm not free, so I thought I would copy & paste it on here to see if anyone else would be interested as it would be great to have someone defending the industry and amazing publicity for who does.

Dear Tanya,

I'm contacting you from the BBC One show that films live around the UK on Sundays after Andrew Marr called The Big Questions. The show is a moral and ethical debate show so we ask viewers at home (and a local audience on location) moral quandary
questions. We ask a local audience and a balanced front row (panel) of invited speakers (of which your member would be one) three 'big questions'.

One of these questions is going to be about whether porn is damaging to society. The 'peg' for the show is the release of a book by a pastor called Jack Skett. The book is called "A Better Kind of Intimacy: The Price of Porn and How to Overcome it"

I thought, as a performer in the adult entertainment industry, you might have an interesting perspective.

In terms of where the programme takes place, we film in different locations around the UK each Sunday - and we're planning to be in Newcastle on Sunday - 28.01.18.

I'd love to have a chat with you if you are free and interested. If you aren't free but know someone who might be, please pass on my details. We'd love to hear from people in the adult industry from the north east of England too.

Best wishes,
Helen

Like I mentioned on twitter Tanya, this whole discussion about porn on the big questions is one that unfortunately neither you nor anyone else in our industry can contribute a constructive argument to because of the format, the guests and the whole aim of the programme.

This isn't an open and fair discussion whether you can offer a different perspective or not, but more a case of being the token adult performer they can show off to say they balance the programme.

The book which they are using as their "peg" is written by a youth pastor who is trying to make a name for himself on social media. The main premise of his book is that porn is an addiction and that it is a sinful action that drives people away from god (his words, not mine). It's not people's fault they look at porn but the devil … apparently.

As long as people see adult performers and porn as a sin or something that makes people sin we haven't got a hope in hell of changing people's opinion about our industry

I got involved with a TV company when they were making a documentary about porn when I booked a model. I made it clear that I did not want to take part, they claimed to accept that, but when the model turned up at the train station, I saw she was wired up for sound, I then saw two men trying to look inconspicuous standing next to her, the fact that one of them was holding a camera seemed to be lost on him.

I walked away, I made no effort to talk to the model and I sat in my car. After 10 minutes she phoned me. I told her what I saw and all three of them went into a blind panic, she took off the recorder and the two men walked away.

The model said that she was told that I agreed to be filmed, I put her straight. Anyway, we did the shoot and I took her back to the train station. I drove into a car park at the rear of the station so that the two guys could not film me.

When the documentary was finally shown, they actually used photographs from the shoot, I had not given permission for my images to be used and to this day they have never told me how they came by them. That cost them dearly.

Moral of this rant? Do not trust TV companies – no matter what they say, they will distort the truth and lie to get what they want.

Its a good job you guys know your stuff because I actually thought it would of been good for the industry but I guess not.

The problem is the question will still be asked and covered just with no one to defend us from our end - but its definitely better that its not me as I really do strongly believe that prejudice is the route to all evil so i would probably lose my temper and accuse him of been the Devil in fancy dress.

Sorry to hear that happened to you Ukgirls, that really is disgusting, hope you sued them - what they did is totally illegal

They got on contact with me also. But it sounded as if it would be a malicious attack. The author of the book does share views with myself. In regards to who the finger should be pointed at. But in the live scenario with an audience demographic of older people. It's not somewhere for a 20 year old.
Unpaid too might I add. The cheek.

I haven't seen the show and have no experience with anything like that, so I guess with always trying to see the best in people I mis-judged it, so apologizes for suggesting someone else attend.

Thank god I wasn't free or I might possibly of agreed.
Good job I've got you lovely lot on here to keep me on the right track - Thanks everyone.

I didn't realise it was unpaid, as I wasn't free anyway I didn't even ask about fee's but I did assume their would be an attendance fee to the invited guests, how the hell do they ever get anyone to do it if they aren't paying?
