There's an exciting new initiative happening in the UK which will be of interest to anyone who supports ethical porn. The Ethical Porn Partnership is a new coalition of adult content producers, performers, consumers and supporters, spearheaded by journalist and sex positive feminist Nichi Hodgson. Nichi has a background in the sex industry and is interested in improving communication between adult producers and the media. The Ethical Porn Partnership will showcase, encourage and support alternative, independent porn producers and performers, aiming to make it easier for the press - and for consumers - to learn about ethical porn and discover the breadth of fairtrade, independent porn that is out there.

The Ethical Porn Partnership is about to start the process of putting together a code of ethics, which participating producers and performers will be willing to sign up to. This is not intended to be the "ethics police" but rather a representative set of standards which genuinely reflects the priorities of performers and ethical producers. Of course the more porn industry workers who are able to contribute to the consultation process, the better. Here is Nichi's call for supporters. If you are interested in getting involved, let her know!

After a successful appearance on BBC Three Speech the other week, and with multiple media outlets interested in pursuing radio and TV docs on EPP's work, we're finally ready to organise the ethics code for the EPP and to establish the broad membership criteria, and EPP's board.

First up, please let me know if you're interested in being involved in the ethics code consultation process. I will then propose some dates for a webinar in which we can thrash out what we do and don't want to include in the initial code.

The US's Free Speech Coalition have shared their ethics code with EPP. There's a lot of great stuff in it, but I'd like your feedback on what you think needs tightening, refining or dropping - if anything. In addition, I'd like to make it more specific to the problems faced by the UK market and consumers in the first instance too.

Let me know if you'd like to be involved in the consultation process, and I will then circulate the code and propose some dates to discuss it.

In the meantime, do please pass this on to anyone else you think may be interested in EPP.

I saw you on the BBC website this week.

I was really pleased with how it came out. It was a surprisingly positive article!
