The Evidence Crumbles: More Porn, More Victims

There’s no doubt that porn causes men to objectify women and that much of it, for lack of a better word, is shabby. And I doubt if it is really able to avoid giving viewers a false perception of what healthy sexuality is, but what about this point;

Women who go into porn do sometimes act in videos that show mutual pleasure among consenting adults, and if the actresses don’t like a particular person in a film they have the right to refuse working with that person. Unlike prostitution, most actresses in present day porn are doing their jobs voluntarily and are not just the victims of sadistic pimps who force them to give sexs to any who ask them for it.

I also know that unlike the many videos which are captioned with titles like, “slut must have sex,” or college girl F — ks, etc. many porn sites seek to elevate the way their films are made and marketed. Some of the titles are undoubtedly chosen by female actresses and may include titles like “a perfect afternoon.” One does have to look for sites which really portray sex as a form of erotica enjoyed by both the men and women in them, but they are out there and the people in them definitely enjoy what they are doing. So it’s not just that the present day industry never depicts the portrayal of sex as being something good and healthy, its just the fact that too many portray ugly scenes which portray women who like sex as sluts or whores. I don’t know if any laws can really change those stereotypes but if we keep elevating the subject in the larger culture, eventually some young people may not want to buy into the stereotyped ugliness that is sometimes depicted as “normal.” At least that’s the way it should be.
