Célian, producer-actor, has rented an apartment on Airbnb and promised 300 euros to Madison, a 29-year-old Albanian who lives in Paris to shoot video X. In the preamble, he insists on his cameraman of the day: "Above all, you never cut the camera, no matter what happens, we have to see your reaction, that's what's important, OK?" A few minutes later, in action, the actress explodes: "Stop it! Stop it!" Celian was slapping her silicon breasts after choking her on a 69 and then crushing her "Via Weinstein", dares. The scene is interrupted, the electric atmosphere. Madison rebels: "brutal sex" was not in the program. Célian claims that it was clear with the agency that he put them in touch. The question of the actress: will increase its stamp of 100 euros, which the producer grants.

The tension drops a step, and the noisy noises resume, as if nothing had happened. After fifty minutes, Madison returns from Uber and tweets her fans: a picture behind the scenes with hearts. "Look at the professionalism!" Célian exclaims. The cameraman does not come back. He just realized that the actress, who was caught by surprise, which is a reason to establish rape in normal times, has monetized a form of consensus for a degrading scene.

It turns out that the cameraman is more than an amateur. It is, in fact, an incorporated journalist. Robin D & # 39; Angelo, 32, has plunged for a year and a half in the middle of the porn hexagon, to bring the camera or be a cuckold husband. Draw a powerful diving book, Judy, Lola, Sofia and me to the Goutte editions of Or – that made this genre their specialty for two years. Without revealing anything fundamentally new in this area, Robin D'Angelo sheds light on the internal cuisine of French amateur porn, "Which raises obvious ethical questions", says the investigator, as we celebrate the anniversary of the Women's Liberation Movement #MeToo.

"Circuit of the hand"

A few years before the revelations about Harvey Weinstein, a sexual scandal had already broken out in porn. The California actor James Deen has been accused of rape by his former partner, the pornstar Stoya, causing similar allegations against him. But D'Angelo relativizes the magnitude of this episode: "These are international megastars who have nothing to do with the overwhelmingness of porn". James Deen continues to film X. In France, in April, five former porn stars published on Mediapart a platform for "Put men in front of the violence they continue to exercise, under the" positive for sex "marketing shield. But the call of these self-proclaimed "Survivors" porn and prostitution have not changed anything.

Regarding the legitimate complaints of cyberstalking e slut-shame (Intimidation of women who have had "non-standard" sexual activity), suffered by former actress Nikita Bellucci, for example, do not directly affect filming. "If porn has remained impenetrable to these problems, it is because the sexual practices imposed on the actresses are intrinsic, explains D & # Angelo; The girl will do unwanted things, this is her job and therefore, necessarily, asking the question about violence may seem incongruous ". For example, in the book, we find this answer from the producer John B. Root to his actress who complains about the pain felt during sodomy: "Do you think an artistic figure skater does not hurt your ankle?"

Robin D'Angelo (also a very casual freelancer for release) directed the online magazine StreetPress. Consumer porn, sometimes hardcore, wanted to explore a personal contradiction: while he appears feminist, he trusts to masturbate on the images where "Men take advantage of their domination over women". In a first-person survey, details his "Circuit of the hand", his problematic feelings when he meets porn actresses, hiding the fact of having a girlfriend …

In front of the "chic" productions of Dorcel, the Hungarian industry, the studies of the Californian "porno valley", the purely amateur couples, the fashion on Pornhub, or the feminist X, is a production of which we speak little in France: the "pro-am" ("professional-amateur"). "The difference between the professional and the amateur is almost no longer there.The amateur no longer informs about shooting conditions but on visual aesthetics – the side of relationships, the neighbor's wife", underlines the journalist. Explain that some producers, barely "Seven or eight" is "Hyper-hierarchical" among them, share the hexagonal cake with, above, powerful as discreet, Jacquie and Michel, founded and directed by Michel Piron. The company – opaque – Pyrénéen would generate almost 25 million euros in annual turnover, producing few videos but ensuring a wide dissemination to all small producers in the area.

These are portrayed as intermediaries whose goal is to find new young women permanently, in particular through social networks; and then sell videos on multiple platforms. This outsourcing complicates the control of shooting and working conditions, knowing it "Girls do not have the power to say no" D'Angelo notes, and usually do not stay on the circuit for more than six months. This sector remains in the blind spot of much of the media sphere and even more politically, which addresses the issue only under the corner of the ban on minors, without putting its nose in the conditions of recovery. A subject "Taboo and latent" that "It gives free rein to the law of the strongest, note Robin D & Angelo. It is paradoxical: the sector is completely deregulated where workers need more social protection ". The journalist regrets laissez-faire: "Unlike prostitution, porn is legal, so the public authorities have the means to act.You could imagine a special contract for sex workers, producers could be led to specify the practices required of girls …"

"Traumatic dissociation"

Between social precariousness and emotional vulnerability, the story of the actresses is surprising, battered lives, thrown at the mercy of unscrupulous or perverse producers. These young women are those of the title of the book (1). Judy, the 22-year-old girl next door, returns to porn because she is "In gallee of money". It connects strange jobs to try to end the vicious circle of prostitution. His story: a young woman with antidepressants and sedatives, cocaine and alcohol addict, who fled her parents' home before being kidnapped by her dealer. His first move at age 18 turns out to be a rape. His mother, who discovered her activities, tried to buy videos of Jacquie and Michel. In vain Despite this, "Porn is a breath of fresh air, He said. It allows me to feel alive.

Lola is one of the oldest actresses on the circuit. His first scene with Jacquie and Michel dates back five years. It tells of a rude childhood between families and foster families, then the daily rapes of his father, his mother who preferred to work in the garden. In order to continue in the X, Toulonnaise accepts everything that is proposed: "From" bukkake " [tournantes avec des hommes éjaculant sur une femme, ndlr] to 100 boys and a woman with a funnel in the ass ", zoophilia … and discovers that he can not help but go back. Robin D & # 39; Angelo finds in this profile a "Traumatic dissociation", according to the psychiatrist theory Muriel Salmona, presented in the tribune of "Survivors" : risky or extreme behaviors can cut one's emotions, they do "To break the emotional circuit". A phenomenon that would be quite common among pornographers.

"It's" Into the Wild ""

As for Sofia, she grew up on the outskirts of Hénin-Beaumont (Pas-de-Calais). In deep emotional loneliness, he posted his photos on Twitter before being identified by a producer and, "Overnight, ends with all the French porn that wants to transform it" explains D & # Angelo; Sofia to the journalist: "Porn is Into the Wild. So yes, it's difficult, there are many assholes. But it also allows me to meet interesting people, to see things. " Without a fixed address, without a credit card, she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. porn "Heals better than drugs", She concludes.

Is not there a risk, telling their dramas, of bringing these girls a victim status, while none of the ardeuses metées is considered as such? The answer is increasingly complex. "When the feeling – their – must be more important than the facts – the violent actions? asks D & # Angelo; Do not forget what brings porn to these girls ". Money (between 250 and 350 euros a snap, almost twice the actors), but also a loophole, sometimes a dose of pleasure and, above all, a recognition. The fan community does a lot.

Robin D & Angelo has taken a long time to get testimonies that go beyond the clichés. The doors have never opened, including those of Pascal OP, generate porn trash. Thus the journalist incognito the integrated film X filming as an amateur actor, and in particular the circle of a bukkake, from 30 euros requested online. He managed to get out of the scene at the last minute, disgusted by the humiliation inflicted on the porn star with distorted eyes. Meeting a few days later, Sonia said, however, that he had kept a good memory, convinced he had dominated the herd of horny males …
