Feminist views on sexuality widely vary. Many feminists, particularly radical feminists, are highly critical of what they see as sexual objectification and sexual exploitation in the media and society. Radical feminists are often opposed to the sex industry, including opposition to prostitution and pornography. Other feminists define themselves as sex-positive feminists and believe that a wide variety of expressions of female sexuality can be empowering to women when they are freely chosen. Some sex-positive feminists support efforts to reform the sex industry to become less sexist, such as the feminist pornography movement. Efforts such as these are seen as healthy expressions of female agency.
