How Porn Downgrades Women

The blowjob, pounding, anal, double anal then cumshot is the way a typical porn film nowadays goes. So predictable, and yet so popular?

If I were to write a novel in which a number of vulnerable females are abducted and fucked in a skimpy room and seated in the corner, a fat man with a beard, a cigar, and a firm grip around his penis looks on, I could probably quite easily pass it off to my critics as a novel about human nature.

These sorts of things do happen, and they all greatly demean women. Their women are thrown around sofas by men - notice I said their women, not, simply, women – this is because the women belong to the directors, they sign contracts, and the more extreme they go, let’s say, a nice double-anal, the more dollars and dimes they rake in with their cum-stained hands.

But the ultimate question of pornography is not whether or not it’s good business, because whatever your view, you can’t deny how much money it brings into the economy. The question is of morality/ethics, is it wrong to treat women as such, even if they are consenting? Allow me to forward an example of a friend of mine, who was involved in porn, as an actress.

She joined, a naive eighteen year old, and was thrusted immediately into an all-day shoot with a man of over the age of thirty and under the age of forty, who whipped out his asymmetrical schlong and as soon as the camera rolled, his character, which previous to the sound of the director saying “action” was warm and gentle, changed to a more sinister, or even frightful one. He throttled her neck, pretending afterwards that this was his general perception of not only light bondage, but of what the average porn actress loved.

Many other things happened in this shoot, which was also her last, and for which she was awarded something in the sum of over two thousand dollars. One thing in particular that set her off the whole idea was the male actor, displaying ferocious and unneeded masculinity again when he “accidentally” thrusted his penis from inside her vagina into her anus, without her consent even though before the shoot began, she said adamantly to all involved that she would not do anal.

After later apologizing for his actions, to which he finally admitted, the actor was met with a firm palm across his face as revenge for the anal “accident” and the mess he made on her own face.

Men do, for the best part, treat women badly in porn. There is certain porn that is tailored particularly for people who enjoy this sort of behavior called bondage, or S&M, a famed example of which has appeared recently in the novel Fifty Shades of Grey, a popular but ultimately terrible trilogy of books with no substance or prose talent. Fifty Shades of Grey is about control over women, the suspension of free will by Christian Grey.

In these particular porn films, usually set in a dungeon of some sort, women are chained, humiliated and subjected to many degrading activities, willingly of course. Even though they are totally consenting to these actions, is it just a typical day at the office, or some sort of change in mental perception? We all perceive things differently, but is the change in our porn becoming more positively perceived and received? I think so.

But why are our teenagers, and adults, getting their rocks off to this violent, often malicious business? Perhaps the men who watch it are oppressors who fantasize about having women under their thumb. As for the women who watch it, perhaps they’re weak-willed, and like to be dominated. Some porn films of a violent nature are on the border of the final days of Caligula, but his films would have broken records for obscenity. Often, porn follows the Pain for Pleasure Complex, a little thing many people have.

In a friendly relationship where two people are familiar with each other, what they do is fine, and is their business. They can choke and smack and spank each other as much as they like because they are both happy and consenting and interested in these engagements.

My argument pertains particularly to male performers, who often over-do their roles and become, too involved, shall we say? They take method acting to a whole new level. Perhaps it is in our basest human nature, as men to subject women, and for women to be subjected, but many of us are free from sexual reigns and free from the chains of old-age silliness. Porn has yet to catch up.
