Men, Women and Pornography. [Apr. 18th, 2004|07:45 pm]


I have noticed that in the consideration of porn actors, most people seem to portray only women as victims.

For Debate/Discussion: Is this just sexism, or are women more vulnerable because of the media's sexism?

My Stance: Yes, this is sexism.

Hmm I've never understood why people have such a problem with people who choose to act in pornography. One thing I will point out for discussion is the sexist way women are 'selected' for porn. Why do the women have to be blonde/25/DD and the guys seem to be whoever puts there hand up?

I can't say I've watched enough porn to konw whether or not that's true, so I'll take your word for it. The answer, I imagine, is becuase I'm assuming most of the porn you've seen (note: seen, not watched) is heterosexual porn. I imagine it would be very different in gay porn.

Men in porn are largely chosen for their ability to get an erection and ejaculate as soon as possible after being told to do so, as that cuts down on shooting costs.
