The Portrayal of Women in Porn

    This is a question for the ladies: How do you feel about the (negative) portrayal of women in porn?

    I'm talking more about the condescending videos I've seen where women are sluts or whores and are called names and basically treated badly. There's sometimes a role people play during sex where they talk rough and dirty to each other to get the action going, and that's fine. But it seems like the sex industry is slowly degrading women into nothing more than bitches, sluts and whores and pretty soon that's all that young men are gonna get an erection to. Put it this way: If a man has lots of sex with lots of women, he's a pimp or player, but if a woman has lots of sex with lots of men, she's a dirty slut. What's up with that? I think porn has something to do with this.

    I was gonna post this on the main forum, but there's too many words, people would need cliffs, not very many women post there and most that do would either not see this thread or give a worthless reply. Maybe I'll consider reposting it there later.

    Edit: I think there's a misunderstanding in this thread about what I'm referring to in the movies. I don't care about the actresses or their choice to do this. More power to them! I'm talking about the character they play, how the guy treats that character, etc... The overall degradation of female character as a whole in pornography.

    Honestly it doesn't bother me. Some people get off on that kind of thing. The women you see in those movies are getting paid it's not a real situation.

    i'm not a woman, but porn also says good things about woman ie Fat Porn, it's the only media outlet that shows fat as positive. just to point that out.

    Also, bear in mind, the women are pretty much the center of attention in most porn, the guys are just there to be there, but the women are getting their rocks off just as much as the guys are. Of course, there's always the extremist bondage porn to consider, but really don't see that as a means of comparison to your typical amateur porn woman. It's typically very rare that I've seen a porn where there's a lot of "Yeah bitch, suck that cock, you dirty slut, yada yada" and if that comes along, I usually move on to something else.

    Personally, if there's a smile on her face and she's having a good time, THAT'S the biggest turn on for me in a porn. If she has a facial expression like she's getting raped and beaten to death, that's almost grounds for erectile dysfunction :p

    = not a whore? :mamoru:

    I think it definately contributes... but I think the fact that girls let too much go too soon is becoming too common of an occurance and that has more to do with it. Nothing is sacred anymore... It's almost expected anymore and people don't take is seriously. I think it's sad...

    I'm mostly bothered by extreme stuff that is being faked meaning the people involved obviously aren't into it, they're just performing. For example, often times when a guy starts choking a girl, he goes limp. What's up with that?

    i dont think its all that negintive. what i dont care for is the fack that often the posistions do nothing for the girl...its all about what looks good visually to a male target audience.

    edit: it gives a misconception... you watch porn, and see the girl 'enjoy' a certain postion. then you take said knoweldge to gf, and do it. you get mad then if gf doent get off like they did in the porno.

    i think its a disservice to sexual education .....

    I dont think porn is a negative portrayal of women. They participate in porn by choice. It is a negative portrayal of one's own self however, is impossible to portray all women as a whole. I personally enjoy porn and appreciate the attractive women who take on the risk to do it while understanding that problematic childhoods and low self esteems drive them to do what they do.

    No handful of people can represent an entire group. For anyone, especially feminist groups, to claim otherwise is a stereotype.

    it's because the women in porn are whores they are used as entertainment for men lots of the girls had bad childhoods and are drug addicts and it's what sells. there is every single kind of porn you can think of and the rougher more degrading stuff sells the best so it tells us what people are into.
