Never before has the issue of consent in porn been formally addressed by industry insiders, let alone on a worldwide level, as it was on Thursday, February 25th 2016, via a live web broadcast jointly produced by XBIZ and Sssh.com.

It was an unprecedented insider look into the complex issues of consent, encompassing how performers and consumers can make better informed decisions, what communication systems already exist to proactively ensure consent at all stages of a shoot and why consent extends beyond sex to impact personal branding and revenue streams.

As written by journalist Lux Alptraum for vocativ.com/news/289744/consent-in-porn-panel/ :
After allegations of abuse by one of the porn industry’s most beloved male performers, James Deen, last December the Adult Entertainment Expo announced the inclusion of a panel discussion of consent in the porn industry. And then, days before the panel was supposed to take place, it was quietly cancelled, leaving some concerned that the industry was squandering an opportunity for an essential conversation about performer health and well being.

But fortunately, the conversation wasn’t abandoned entirely. On February 25, AVN competitor XBIZ Media teamed up with Sssh.com (a popular porn for women and couples site) to present “Consent in Porn: Debunking Myths & Managing Realities,” a livestreamed panel discussion watched by about four thousand viewers. Moderated by sociologist Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals, who collaborates with Sssh.com's educational site, Mindbrowse.com, the panel featured a diverse group of voices from many corners of the adult industry.
But viewers hoping for a public reckoning of porn’s wrongs were quickly disappointed. The bulk of the hour and a half panel was devoted to demystifying the various practices within the industry that ensure performer safety; from performers’ agents doing due diligence to pre-scene conversations and negotiations with co-workers to directors remaining engaged and aware of their performers’ state of mind.
