Sex offer: what is the new Pornhub movie about

The latest documentary to hit Netflix delves into the world of the internet’s most popular adult entertainment site, Pornhub. Produced by the influential American documentarian, Alex Gibney, the film has sparked mixed reviews. However, many have acknowledged it as a serious exploration of the social phenomenon and issues surrounding the adult industry. In this feature, we’ll take a closer look at why this isn’t just another run-of-the-mill exposé on adult content.

A Status-Defining Endeavor

This documentary holds a certain prestige, largely due to Alex Gibney’s involvement. With past forays into contentious subjects, including the award-winning “Taxi to the Dark Side” which shed light on lawlessness and torture within U.S. prisons, Gibney is no stranger to controversy. Having also covered conspiracy theories (“Crime of the Century”) and violence in religious communities (“The Church of the Lost Cause”), he now turns his lens to pornography.

The director of “The Pornhub Story” is Suzanne Hillinger, a collaborator with Gibney since their 2020 documentary on the COVID-19 epidemic in the U.S., “Under Complete Control.” Their joint effort has received a 99% freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 103 critic reviews.

Beyond the Familiar Faces

While the documentary doesn’t feature familiar adult industry stars like Sasha Grey or Johnny Sins, it does include interviews with journalists, models, representatives from Pornhub, and even law enforcement officers. They shed light on the flip side of the industry and its unique intricacies.

From Pleasure to Peril

In Russia, Pornhub is one of the most popular adult sites, but the documentary reveals that abroad, the platform has been the subject of over 30 lawsuits and numerous street demonstrations.

Established in 2007, Pornhub quickly overshadowed erotic DVDs, tapes, and magazines. Why pay when you can download for free? Users flooded the site with millions of videos, the vast majority of which were uploaded anonymously. With abundance came diversity—you could find videos of any nature with just a few clicks. And here’s where the problems started.

In 2009, a video was uploaded showing several men violently assaulting a 14-year-old girl while brandishing a knife. By the time of the attack, the video had already amassed over 400,000 views on Pornhub. The victim repeatedly attempted to contact the platform’s owners to have the video removed but received no response until she sought legal action. Similar videos continued to appear on the site until 2020.

A Battle for Justice

Initially, activists, led by human rights advocate Leila Mickelwait, confronted the platform for its complicity in hosting such content. Mickelwait’s relentless efforts to hold Pornhub accountable have drawn widespread attention.

In “The Pornhub Story,” Alex Gibney and Suzanne Hillinger take audiences on a journey into the heart of one of the internet’s most controversial realms. Through interviews and investigations, they shed light on the complexities and dark sides of the adult industry, prompting viewers to question the broader societal implications of our digital age.
