Pro-sex feminism includes pro-pornography?

The pro-pornography arguments of Sexually liberal feminism

In the Pro-sex feminism history, one of the earliest Sexually liberal feminism arguments pro-pornography was Ellen Willis’s essay “Feminism, Moralism, and Pornography” first published in October 1979 in the Village Voice.

In response to the formation of Women Against Pornography in 1979, Willis wrote an article (the origin of the term, “pro-sex feminism”), expressing worries about anti-pornography feminists’ attempts to make feminism into a single-issue movement, arguing that feminists should not issue a blanket condemnation against all pornography and that restrictions on pornography could just as easily be applied to speech that feminists found favorable to themselves.

Censorship reinforces male privilege.

Rubin calls for a new feminist theory of sex, saying that existing feminist thoughts on sex had frequently considered sexual liberalization as a trend that only increases male privilege.
The comparison seems quite learly censorship equals male privilege.

Rubin criticizes anti-pornography feminists who she claims “have condemned virtually every variant of sexual expression as anti-feminist,” arguing that their view of sexuality is dangerously close to anti-feminist, conservative sexual morality.

Rubin encourages Pro-sex feminism activists to consider the political aspects of sexuality without promoting sexual repression. She also argues that the blame for women’s oppression should be put on targets who deserve it:
“the family, religion, education, child-rearing practices, the media, the state, psychiatry, job discrimination, and unequal pay…” rather than on relatively un-influential sexual minorities.

McElroy (1995) argues that for feminists in the 1970s and 1980s, turning to matters of sexual expression was a result of frustration with feminism’s apparent failure to achieve success through political channels: in the United States, the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) had failed, and abortion rights came under attack during the Reagan administration.

Sexually liberal feminism in China.

China scholar Elaine Jeffreys observes that the ‘anti-prostitute’ position gained increased critical purchase during the establishment of the international movement for prostitutes in 1985.

It was in fact demanding recognition of prostitutes’ rights as an emancipation and labor issue rather than of criminality, immorality or disease.

By the 2000s, the positive-sex position of the Pro-sex feminism had driven various international human rights NGOs to actively pressure the Chinese government to abandon its official policy of banning prostitution in post-reform China and recognize voluntary prostitution as legitimate work.
