From pay inequities to identity policing, this episode dives into queerness in the adult entertainment industry.

Queer porn producer, writer, and director Shine Louise Houston is our guest on episode 77 of American Sex Podcast. We talk about pay inequities in porn and her progressive pay structure for talent, what it means to be queer, her upcoming movie "Chemistry Eases the Pain," which is a “straight curious” adventure. All of that leads to a discussion of identity policing in the queer community, and the all-too-common problem of being ridiculed for doing something or someone that isn’t “queer enough.” We also discuss the challenges of being a queer woman of color in the industry, crowdfunding adult films, why it’s important to pay for your porn, and more. We also celebrate Shine's birthday!
