Soooo, The AVN Awards happened this weekend. How do you feel about that? I can tell you how I feel, which is icky.
The majority of ladies and men, I think, feel conflicted about porn.
Objectively, of course, the addition of visual stimulation into sex or masturbation is 100% fine. Because you know what? Porn is a turn on. I think it’s, literally, like impossible not to be aroused when looking at pictures of naked people.
Except, whenever I see pornographic images, there’s a part of me that also feels distinctly uncomfortable and sad.
Because porn is a dirty, objectifying, perverse industry. How many women — men even! — see a “barely legal” video like “OMG I F#%@d my Daughter’s BFF*” and feel okay about it? I mean, there are bajillions of girls in the porn industry who aren’t even old enough buy alcohol. Can you even come back from that kind of head fuckery? The thought of it makes me ill.
Except, truth: a big part of me wants condone porn. We are in the land of techno-romance after all. Multimedia is here, and central to our relationships. But why is it that sex can be so great, while porn is often so perverse?
*Man, porn really is a hilarious parody of itself sometimes.
P.S. The AVN Awards Slideshow can be found here. Fascinating photos, actually.
