Sex, porn online not inherently wrong but society stigma persists

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

Erick Adame, a New York weatherman, recently lost his job after his employer discovered he appeared on an adult webcam website. Though every circumstance differs, Adame’s situation raises an important question: Should someone be fired for consensual sex practices made public?

That depends.

“It’s a healthy expression of sexuality,” says Courtney Watson, licensed marriage and family therapist. “And no one should have that policed because other folks don’t agree (with) the way that their individual sexuality should be expressed. That’s no one else’s business.”
