Online sex and porn aren’t inherently bad, but societal stigma persists

  • NY1 weatherman Erick Adame recently lost his job after his employer discovered his nudes.
  • Should someone be fired for consensual sexual practices made public?
  • Expressing yourself sexually is healthy, experts say, but society doesn’t always agree.

Erick Adame, a meteorologist from New York, recently lost his job after his employer found out he had appeared on an adult webcam website. While every circumstance differs, Adame’s situation raises an important question: Should someone be fired for making public consensual sex?

It depends.

“It’s a healthy expression of sexuality,” says Courtney Watson, a licensed marriage and family therapist. “And nobody should have that policed ​​because other people disagree with how their individual sexuality should be expressed. It’s nobody else’s business.”
