Why we don’t do Porn

           Why We Don’t Do Porn

We dwell in a larger play called the “big picture.”

For ten years, Carson Dunn Media has provided advertising and public relations services to small and midsize businesses. For us the “big picture,” is defining ourselves as moral beings with strong loyalty to our clients. We love our profession and have pride in a willingness to advertise and promote all types of business. 

But, as an agency we have a major gripe. All over the country, there are large advertising agencies that are well-heeled, wealthy and represent porn-based businesses. Their integrity can easily be questioned–as many of these agencies view the issue myopically — they are blind to the “big picture.”

Recently, an adult entertainment company approached Carson Dunn Media about providing public relations for their products. We refused. The reason was simple. Pornography is a degrading blight. This assertion cannot be challenged: women, and sometimes children are sexually objectified – there is no contrary argument. Not everything is harmless entertainment. The “big picture” cries for responsibility.

So, why would large advertising agencies promote pornography? Greed! They do not care if pornography impacts children, they do not care about the women and men being exploited in pornographic films and photography. They only care about the money.

Carson Dunn Media will not do porn. We simply will not.

As a small agency we are familiar with struggle. And while turning down a client impacts financially; we can sleep softly at night knowing that we have not given into such a degrading industry. As an agency our concern transcends money: we are interested in the well-being of our clients and helping them to succeed, and promoting the greater good. 

Friends, here is the big picture: While we don’t do porn, all other business is welcomed.
