A Good Take on Khan Tusion, Notorious Porn Director

Interesting comment from a commenter on the famous “Porn Star Assaulted on Set post. That post gets a Helluva lot of views and it’s also been posted around quite a bit. If you want to see what Tusion is accused of in this matter (and other matters) head on over to the post and read up on it.

I must say that I generally agree with this fellow’s sentiment. I like it kind of rough sometimes, but that’s not as nuts you think. Do you have any idea how many women like it a bit rough? Are you kidding?

The reports about Khan Tusion bothered me on a deep level. Indeed, those clips themselves are very disturbing. The Facial Abuse site is similar. I’ve long felt that that site needs to be shut down. Those sociopaths are doing exactly what Khan is doing, with predictable results.

I really don’t get this. If I am in bed with a woman, it’s because I like her. If she’s my girlfriend, it might even be because I love her. If I like her or love her, why in the Hell would I treat her like shit? This has never made sense to me.

W. Addams: I just don’t understand why people can’t understand the difference between consensual rough sex porn and actual abuse. I’ve heard people argue that the actresses knew what they were in for, that they are stupid “whores”, etc., for getting involved with rough sex porn, and some people even say “He wasn’t even hitting them that hard, what’s the big deal?”

Dudes. I watch a lotta porn. I watch BDSM and rough sex porn. I practice BDSM and rough sex with my partner. Let me tell you– there is a way to do it that isn’t abusive.

One of the biggest issues with Tusion’s approach is the emotional/mental abuse. It’s quite personal in nature. He talks about the actresses’ families and parents while they’re engaged in degrading acts, demands to know the childhood names their parents called them, makes them say hello to their fathers, etc. He tells them they’re stupid, shit, worthless, etc. But all of it is done on a personal level, as an attack against the woman — the human being — herself.

In any rough porn, what typically happens is the sub actress (or actor) is given a safe word that she can use at any time.

Also, she is asked at the beginning what her limits are, and the director and dom actors will stay within them and not then try to bully her on-camera into going beyond them (something Tusion does).

Finally, these scenes are almost always enacted as an alternate reality — a situation like “school girl and principal” or “patient and nurse,” or even just the alternate reality of the actress as her actress self, not her real self. This creates a level of distance which makes a safe place for people to explore outrageous kink.

Tusion disregards all of this and flat-out mentally abuses human beings, on purpose.

There’s no reason for this except sociopathy. It isn’t just “misogyny.” It’s more than that. It’s a lack of respect for a fellow human being.

Just because someone is in porn doesn’t mean they deserve to be treated like absolute garbage. If anyone consumes porn, you know full well that you are a hypocrite if you criticize porn stars. You’re just as guilty as they are for supporting the porn system. So support them when they speak out about assholes in the industry. No one should be working with Tusion again.

    Our society does, though, allow this abuse to prepare people for war, like say, in Marine Corps boot camp. Is that a special case?
