You seem to have an ax to grind, although I’m not entirely sure what it is, but it does keep you from paying attention to what I’m actually saying. I am not demanding real orgasms in porn, but what I’ve repeatedly said is that they don’t even bother to simulate them a good bit of the time. Porn is ubiquitous and so therefore mainstream. The point of my original comment was that even in a more niche outlets, such as Lust Cinema, which is run by a European woman, perpetuating the idea that sex ends with male ejaculation is not conducive to promoting good sex.

Check out this 4 min. clip from Cindy Gallop, who created Make Love Not Porn. Her mission is to balance the messaging in porn that is destructive to actual good sex with better information. It’s not about judgement but about making sure that both young men and young women understand that porn is entertainment and not what real life good sex looks like.
