This debate reflects larger concerns surrounding feminist views on sexuality , and is closely related to those on prostitution , on BDSM , and other issues. Pornography has been one of the most divisive issues in feminism , particularly in anglophone English-speaking countries. This deep division was exemplified in the feminist sex wars of the s, which pitted anti-pornography activists against sex-positive ones.

Catharine McKinnon and Andrea Dworkin had separately staked out a position that pornography was inherently exploitative toward women, and they called for a civil law to make pornographers accountable for harms that could be shown to result from the use, production, and circulation of their publications.
