EPISODE 110 | JUNE 13, 2017
When we stop to listen, we not only allow ourselves to be vulnerable to viewpoints we’ve never heard before, but we also engage in topics that are tempting to be close-minded about. In this episode, Benjamin meets up with adult film actress Tasha Reign to chat about sex, love, spirituality, as well as the lesser known details of the pornographic industry.
Adult performer, model, media personality and writer Tasha Reign is a sex-positive feminist who chronicles her work in the adult industry with a lighthearted point of view.
She launched her career in porn in 2010 after posing for Playboy Magazine's "Girls of the Pac-10 Issue" and "Cybergirl of the Week" while attending UCLA. A year later Reign was crowned Penthouse Magazine's Pet of the Month.
Reign's access to the ins and outs of the adult industry gave her a voice to inform the general public about the perceived stigma women in porn face that has attached itself to modern society; in 2013 the performer took to writing as a regular columnist in LA Weekly to shatter myths and assumptions about working in the business.
In six years as a performer, Reign has used her porn notoriety to challenge the misconception of women's treatment and objectification in a business where women's bodies are their primary currency for use - and potential abuse. But according to Reign, that myth undermines the reality of the industry, and the agency of the women who choose to be a part of it.
Reign has since created her own film company, Reign Productions, launched her own line of novelty toys, regularly lectures on university panels and continues to write articles for publications such as Huffington Post, Bro Bible and Galore Magazine.
