Comment of the Week: All Porn Is Not Alike

Wed, Aug 4, 2010

Comment of the Week, Confessions

We couldn’t agree more with Jenn’s comment below. So here’s another question: For the porn-curious who don’t want to wade through thousands of titles to make the distinction, is there a short-cut to finding porn that IS fair to all those involved?

Why does porn always have to be one or the other? It’s like saying art is good or art is bad. There are thousands of types and millions of examples. Some/most porn is degrading and some porn is fair to all those involved. I feel like we need to understand what is IN the porn rather than the fact that something IS porn.

    I have found that in terms of porn films there is a paricular male orientated format which most productions seem to aspire to.
    Even female produced porn falls in to the same formulaic trap most of the time.
    It’s refreshing when something new comes along. In my 5 years of viewing and reviewing porn films there is only one film which stood out from the rest in terms of production and equality.

    Uh, Hi Suzanne. Can you tell us what film you are talking about? Is it a secret? If you find good examples of human sexuality on film please share. Don’t be shy. ;)

    I personally recommend Erika Lust’s films. They look like actual films and are well thought out and put together.

    As far as female produced porn goes often (as I learned in Erika Lust’s book) the woman with her name on the cover is a marketing ploy. She is really not involved in creating the actual porn film. Sad. We need more adult film makers that actually know how to make a film.
