|The Daughter and her boyfriend made a sex tape; now she’s decided to discuss that with women in her family. In this game, different generations of feminists will argue it out about sex, porn, and the main point of feminism. The genre is drama! All the characters love each other, but are passionate activists who will never miss a chance to bring up their own strong political opinions in loud voices. Love or good arguments might make them change their opinions. Overacting is better than underacting in this game.|
Sex-positive, “good porn is empowering.”
|You’re 18. Your boyfriend convinced you to make a sex tape. It turned out funny, sexy, and really good! Without your knowledge, your boyfriend sent the tape to an amateur sex tape festival. You are upset about that. The organizers want to show the tape at the festival and online, and do an online interview with you. That feels exciting! There’s so much porn that only degrades women; maybe putting your great sex tape out there could help reverse that. You need help sorting out the emotions and you want your family’s support.||Decide:|
• If you will participate in the festival; and
My body, my rules;
• What to do about your boyfriend, e.g., dump him, keep him, report him to the police, etc.
erotica can be art;
• Mention these problems to the others very early.
you owe me support.
Sex-positive, but porn-negative feminist.
|You’re 45. Porn actors are all victims, whether they realize it or not. Porn leads to prostitution and drugs, as well as perverting boys’ views of sex. The degradation and commercialization of the female body is your number one feminist issue. Your daughter needs to understand that she shouldn’t be ashamed; she is a victim. She should not participate in the festival. You want to report the boyfriend to the police for spreading the video without her consent.|
Porn objectifies the female body;
all porn supports trafficking;
you are a victim.
Sex- and porn-negative feminist.
|You’re 75 and an old school socialist factory-worker feminist. You've stood on the barricades, you've marched, you've been in fights. Modern feminists aren’t thankful enough. Women need to unite and fight for real issues like equal pay and equal political representation. “Sexuality rights” isn’t a feminist issue; it’s a slut issue. Your brilliant granddaughter should be ashamed about all this scandal. She needs to go to university and become a politician. Sex should be private, although you can talk about it with the other women in the family. Your granddaughter should not go to the festival; you should not report the boyfriend to the police, which would make this a bigger scandal.|
Sexuality rights are not feminism;
fight for real issues;
you must make me proud.
|Aunt||Sex- and porn-positive feminist. “Good porn empowers women!”||You’re 40. Your sister’s kind of feminism shames the female body. An empowered woman takes charge of her body, sexuality, and finances. Maybe your niece can become a famous porn actor now? Making and selling good porn is a more useful kind of feminist activism than Gender Studies at the university. Women’s rights to use their brains and bodies for their own advantage is the number one feminist issue for you. Your niece should go to the festival. This is not a police matter.|
Use your body for advantage;
take back our power over female sexualization;
don’t shame other women.
Reality check and sisterhood.
|You’re 15. You get sad when the others argue. They should support each other. Like your auntie, you think it’s very wrong to shame other women. Like your grandmother, you think arguments about sex and porn divide feminists and pit them against each other. Like your mother, you’re very worried about your sister. What about her career? What about online harassment? Your sister should follow her heart about the festival. She should, ideally, report the boyfriend to the police, but what if he posts the tape online as revenge porn?|
What about your career?;
we need to support each other!
