Our Kinky Friends Discuss FOSTA/SESTA

From Wikipedia: The Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act (SESTA) and Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA) are the U.S. Senate and House bills that as the FOSTA-SESTA package became law on April 11, 2018.

Illegal sex trafficking is horrible but these poorly written FOSTA/SESTA laws have had a grave effect on legitimate sex workers, the LGBTQ community, and the internet in general.
