San Francisco International Film Festival http://kalw.org en "Cherry" and the other side of the San Francisco porn industry http://kalw.org/post/cherry-and-other-side-san-francisco-porn-industry-0 <p>Generally, pornography isn&rsquo;t something that comes up in casual conversation. It&rsquo;s a taboo topic for obvious reasons &ndash; but local author Stephen Elliott says this means people know very little about the people who work in that industry, and often consider them victims or bad people. In his twenties, Elliott was a stripper in his hometown, Chicago, and he&#39;s part of the sex worker community here in San Francisco. He and his friend Lorelei Lee, an adult film star, decided to co-write a screenplay that would share their perspective of what it&rsquo;s like to work in porn.
