Miley Cyrus role with porn star may help bring public respect to sex work

One of the most oppressive features of capitalism’s nuclear-family-oriented morality system is its demonization and stigmatization of sex work — particularly prostitution and erotic acting (i.e., porn). But, as Red Keyhole has consistently pointed out, many sex workers should be regarded as role models rather than pariahs.

Former pop teen idol Miley Cyrus (famed for her role as the Disney character Hannah Montana) seems to have taken a step in the direction of bestowing more credibility on sex work, by appearing together with 20-year-old porn star Jessie Andrews in DJ Borgore’s “Decisions” music video.

These developments are discussed in a Nov 5th report on Huffington Post:

Miley Cyrus Gets Porn Offer After Filming ‘Decisions’ With Adult Film Star Jessie Andrews

Erstwhile teen idol Miley Cyrus (left) may be mulling a softcore porn gig with pornstar Jessie Andrews (right).

This has led to a proposition from the media director for Sex.com, offering 19-year-old Cyrus possibly as much as $1 million to perform in a “softcore girl-on-girl make-out session” with Andrews.

The Sex.com proposal would feature the two young women kissing nude. The porn site says it wouldn’t be opposed.If Cyrus would wants to “take things further”.

However, reports Huffington, erotic film fans shouldn’t hold their breaths. While Cyrus may have made a sharp break away from her Hannah Montana Disney persona, she “may not be quite ready to accept an offer to appear in a softcore porn just yet…” says the article.

In any case, Cyrus’s open attitude toward appearing in the video with a porn performer does seem to represent a significant move toward securing public respectability for erotic performers in general.
