DON'T WORK HARDER, JUST WORK SMARTER!

Last year we introduced something totally new to the industry events. Q-TALKS. Instead of the traditional panels where time is missing for each speaker to share knowledge at their full potential, we are allowing them to present short keynotes on specific topics related to their respective verticals. Attendees really liked this new way, so we chose to maintain it this year.

That’s why our education sessions and workshops are designed to provide insight, tips and applicable learning experiences for every level, regardless of where you are in your career. We enlist industry experts to bring you engaging, in-depth information sessions to not only be relevant to your day-to-day job but also benefit your career.

Since our workshops are focused on exchange and interactivity, each keynote will be followed by a quick Q&A session where the only stupid question is the one not asked, and where everyone can share tips, tricks, and experiences.

Keynote
THE USE OF PUBLIC HEALTH RHETORIC TO ATTACK THE ADULT INDUSTRY
Location : Algarve Room
Sponsored by : ADULTFORCE

Ava Mir-Ausziehen - Sssh.com
degrees in gender and sexuality studies

This presentation will review the growing tendency of politicians, lobbyists, and social commentators to criticize pornography with claims that it is injurious to ‘public health’. It will discuss how this technique is similar to—and how it deviates from—previous attacks on pornography, as well as how and why the industry needs to resist this rhetorical trend.

Ava Mir-Ausziehen has been involved in various facets of the adult industry for 15 years, as a webcam model, film performer, writer, production assistant, and academic working in the area of porn studies. She holds degrees in gender and sexuality studies, public health, and medical anthropology, and is currently pursuing a PhD in community health. Her dissertation examines how public health language is increasingly used to frame criticisms of the adult industry.

Ava has taught and spoken about sexual education in a variety of contexts, from condom demonstrations in high schools to peer-reviewed publications in academic journals. She has presented on the importance of pleasure-centered, queer-friendly sex ed in numerous community spaces as well as conferences like Catalyst Con. She writes op-eds and sex toy reviews for sites such as Sssh.com, EroticScribes.com, and Ethical.Porn. Her critical insights on porn, feminism, and ethics have been featured in a variety of industry and mainstream media.

You can find most of Ava’s film work at Wasteland.com and Sssh.com.
