What disturbs me is that there seems to be such a market for the gonzo porn. Maybe the industry is just making what they know sells, or maybe they started by pushing it and now there is a market. In any case, I find it pretty disturbing. In this piece linked below it says that one of the reasons that women are saying no to sex more often is because some men want to engage in sex that is painful for them. Non-consensual choking seems to be on the rise. That shit wasn’t a matter of routine sex when I was in college and dating. Guys didn’t think about cumming on a girl’s face as a part of what was going to happen on their date. That’s all related to porn. And if both partners are into that, it’s totally cool, but I don’t know that this is always the case.

My very favorite porn video — Erika Lust’s Pool Boy. The Emma Marx movies are well done also.
