Is porn making masseuse a prostitute?

It’s been a fact that we have seen porn at least once in a lifetime, but do we know that sometimes a representation of a profession in a sexual filmography can change the society’s Prospective. The porn industry in spite of being a taboo subject receives enormous revenue annually. This has attracted many people to join this industry for fast money. Most of the imagery has nothing to do with the rules the society accepts as normal, as this industry earns the most on showing sexual relationships between people which usually is not acceptable by our society. For instance, the famous porn search results are always in the guidelines of Step-parent - Stepchild, Doctor-Patient, Teacher-Student and the most famous Masseuse - The Client.

Working as a masseuse is the most underestimated profession these days. For an individual, as to give themselves a special treat, they get a massage for an hour to relax their body, but they don’t understand the struggle and the pain the masseuse goes through to provide the level of relaxation. In return of the service instead of a thank you and some money, these masseuses have constantly reported that they have been receiving physical abuse. A 23-year-old male masseuse from Mumbai who would not like to reveal his name stated that there were many times he was miss understood as a male sex worker and there were instances where he was threatened to be a part of a sexual act otherwise he would be killed.

There is nothing wrong in watching erotic content but if it is changing the prospective of a person towards an individual or a profession there is some educational seriously required. The most important chapter in this education should be taking the other persons consent. If two or more individual have a consent that they want to be a part of a sexual activity there there is no problem but even if 1 disagree then thats Rape, and its a criminal and moral offence.
