Porn Tue(Thur)sday: The Marcia Edition

I think women who participate in pornography, and those who condone it are disrespecting themselves.

After Tallulah’s post re: The Wellington Young Feminists Facebook Kerfuffle, it seemed like an appropriate time to post some more links to porn. Because now Marcia has left, I really will have to go back to disrespecting myself, instead of just having her do it for me. It’s either that or just sit home playing with my magic vagina.

Please assume all links are NSFW. By that I mean, not safe for Actual Workplaces.

Here is the trailer for Erika Lust’s Life Love Lust - moderately explicit, some nudity, possibly excessive use of tattoos.

But that, clearly, is not what Marcia means by porn. Porn is

sex as an act done to a woman by a man, or several woman at once, or an act done by two or more men to a woman, or encourages violence against women.

So let’s find something a little more “choky and rapey”, shall we? How about some of Maria Beatty’s work? – mildly explicit, BDSM, lesbianism. That spur? Yeah.

Or how about this? That’s horrible BDSM porn too. Well, again, there are no men, and that clip is, while powerfully erotic, perhaps not what a lot of people would be happy calling “porn”. When that spreader bar appears? That’s not intended to arouse, right? And then there’s all that laughter and genuine pleasure.

This is porn, though, definitely: the trailer for Petra Joy’s new film The Female Voyeur - highly explicit, group, domination, bi material. Finally, we’re finding an act done by two or more men… oh, no, that’s to each other… There are several women at once…

You know what? I think I’ll just stay deluded, and stick to listening to people who don’t call me a whore.

    Can you not say things like “sit home playing with my magic vagina”? Now my coworkers want to know why I’m laughing. And it’s not as if I can tell them. Also, in Australia the expression “magic pudding” is a famous children’s story about an inexhaustible pudding. Which somehow now seems like a euphemism.

    For some people Marcia’s definition of porn would be really convenient. Anyone who watches same-sex pornerotica, for example, would be thrilled. Plus most FemDom, anything solo, probably a lot of fetish stuff, wow, at this rate the orn industry will be a bedraggled shell of its former self. If the censors would accept that, we’d be rockin.

    This post, and all the other porn posts? Thank you. So much. I can genuinely say that until I met you, Emma, I held the view that porn was bad, bad, bad. That the women – because all porn in my former opinion was men doing stuff to women – were exploited. Since knowing you, and exploring some more of the porn that’s out there, I have come to the conclusion that that is decidedly not the case. Porn, I now see, is like everything else in life. There is a delightful variety for all tastes, and predilections. Which in turn has freed me to think more openly, and given me permission, to explore the porn that I like. Having stuck to traditional man/woman, and sometimes woman/woman (as seen through a male lens) oriented written material, because I wasn’t even aware there was anything else, it excites me to think of all that other stuff out there.

    Oh, Emma. You’re wonderful. *beams*

    wonder how many feminists out there were conceived because
    their fathers had looked at and were aroused by “porn” prior to
    having sex with their mums?

      Oh, John. Your comments makes just so much gosh-darned *sense*: you obviously read the post really carefully. Here’s a tip. I’m a feminist. I watch porn. What’s your point? You never wonder, though, do you, how many people’s mothers watch porn.

    my point exactly emma, it is mostly feminist who claim
    that porn/erotica is bad as it supposedly exploits women
    never mind gay or lesbian porn that portrays the dominant
    and submissive.
    in fact it maybe beneficial to reaching the ultimate
    goal,after all when men are in the in vitro fertilisation clinic
    they are not sent off to the “wank room” with copy of the
    womans weekly or watching the sound music.

      Um, John, have you read this post, or any other on this website? Because I don’t think you know what you’re talking about when you are talking about “feminists” or exploitation in porn. I do suspect you are very familiar with your very own wank room, though.
