Trans Ethics: What were you doing before you got into camming?

Sabine Isca: I was unemployed, after losing a job due to anxiety & depression.

TE: Was your anxiety and depression due to you being transgender?

SI: Yes it was, I hit a really bad low when I realised I had to transition or it would just keep getting worse.

TE: Did you come out at your previous job?

SI: Yeah, I believed I’d be fine because of the equality act and anti-discrimination policy. Unfortunately, the company complied 100% with their legal requirements, but that didn’t extend to any kind of flexibility with regard to attendance, and I was fired for being off sick too often.

Trans Workings: Leah Lockhart on Working & Being Trans

IMG_2954

Trans Ethics: How long have you been camming?

Leah Lockhart: I actually don’t cam all that much anymore, but I started in April or May of 2014. I am very new to all of this. (hehe)

TE: You just do photo shoots then?

LL: I take plenty of pictures, yes. Right now, I’m focusing hard on doing more porn and making a career out of that. Camming was a great way for me to get my feet (and other body parts) wet, though. It was kind of a crash course in learning what fans like, as well as how to just be on camera in front of people.

TE: What attracted you to the porn industry?

LL: That’s something I can’t quite put my finger on, but I think it has to do with a combination of things.  First: My growing sense of self-awareness, confidence, and what makes me happy. [That’s] the most important part. Continue reading

Keeping it Real: Interview with Chelsea Poe

ChelseaPoe

Trans Ethics: You recently started a petition to get websites to stop using terms like ‘”tranny” and “shemale”. How is that coming along?

Chelsea Poe: A few sites changed their policy after the petition was launched in November. Right now only 3 major companies still use the term “shemale” and I think sites like Trans 500 are the future of trans porn. That is high quality, mainstream porn that just happens to be of trans women without the offensive terms. I’ve been working with Nica Noelle and Courtney Trouble a lot lately and I think they are also bringing an entire new view of trans sexuality from a really artistic place. Their porn is also going to bring a lot of changes to what the state of trans porn is in the future.

TE: There are some models out there who actively promote themselves using those terms, not finding them offensive at all. How do you respond to the models that don’t have an issue with those terms? Do you think they perpetuate a negative stereotype? Continue reading

Talking about what’s “offensive” in the porn industry: Interview with Ada Black

Ada Black1

Trans Ethics: How did you get into adult modeling?

Ada Black: I’ve wanted to do porn since I was about 15. When I started transition I looked into getting into porn. It was quite easy. I directly emailed Mr Grooby and from there we went.

TE: At what age did you realize you were actually a girl, and wanted to transition?

AB: 4 or 5. I’ve always known [I was a girl]. Before bed as a child I remember saying little prayers that I would wake up a girl in the morning. Kind of embarrassing but children do dumb stuff right? Well I used to think I could make myself a girl with magic and I really believed there was some magical way that I could have this female body. Well estrogen shots are certainly a form of magic.

Trans Domination: Niki Flux on Camming, Transition, and Ethics

AW_medion_2014-05-09-1258

Trans Ethics: What did you do before you started camming?

Niki Flux: I was a software/web developer, specialising in building sales funnel systems based around google adwords.

TE: That sounds like a very lucrative career. What attracted you to camming?

NF: It paid pretty well. I’ve always liked numbers and I really enjoy being able to organize a bunch of numbers into something which magically produces money… it’s a very cool process to be part of. Unfortunately I often found my clients needy and annoying which took a lot of the fun out of it. I also wasn’t happy with myself, and at the time things were coming to a head with me [regarding being transgender] which made for quite a destructive combination. Continue reading

About TransEthics

TransEthics

TransEthics is a blog about ethical porn, ethical sex work, being submissive, and thoughts on trans issues — all from the perspective of a trans lesbian. It is not my intent to state that is is a resource or listing of the ethical standards of trans women. Far from it. This is 100% from my perspective. Nothing more.

I will be including links to some erotic content. As the URL suggests, I am a huge fan of Niki Flux, so don’t be surprised if you see some of her stuff here. Who knows? I may get lucky enough to interview her. **dreams on**
