My Porn is Good, It Must Be

Everywhere porn is defended, it is rarely attacked – but the defence is solid anyhow.

One major defence and justification for porn is – there may be some nasty, highly sadistic porn out there. But I choose to consume the nice harm-free stuff.

Well unless you are deluding yourself that erotica, pictures of nudity or sex education is porn – then I highly doubt that your porn is ok. It is only ok coz you refuse to look in a deep and compassionate way at what is being shown inside your porn.

Porn is not about sex, porn is not about communication, porn is not about empowerment for the object used inside porn.

Porn is about power and domination, porn is about making a profit, porn is about making mainly women and girls into object into goods.

A definition of porn is the graphic depiction of whores. But understand that definition in the context of the times it was made, don’t romanised it with your values and modern views.

Whores for the ancient Greeks were the lowest form of slave that any woman or girl could be. Remember that many women and girls outside of slavery, say wives or mothers – were viewed as sub-human by the ancient Greeks.

But whores were made sub-humans on every level – whether they were temple whore, used as so-called companions or whores selling on the street – all were treated with violence and hate.

Porn was and is just a record of that violence and degradation. So if you make the choice to consume porn, you are participating in the degradation and violence done to the prostituted class.

No porn is distance from this hate – be it so-called alternative porn, be it lesbian/gay porn, be it s/m porn, be “home-made” porn and the endless other re-branding of porn for profit.

If you are viewing or consuming scenarios of power and domination, with no regard to the pain and humiliation of the one being dominated – then you are watching porn.

If it appears artificial, or that the sex acts seems impossible without force, or creating fear and pain – then that is porn.

If the message you are receiving is sex is not about communication, not about caring what pain or how much degradation you put into another, but only your  selfish sexual wants to perform – then you are consuming too much porn.

There is no such thing as good porn – I don’t care what label it gives itself.

But if you choose to view those inside porn as sub-humans – then you can pretend your porn is fine.

  1. I am starting to notice that nowdays there´s no space for anything else but porno.Nobody is reading interesting books,watching to cult movies,it´s only porno everywhere…and what scares me alot is the acceptance it has among women.In front of such high male violence,it´s scaring that avarage women still do their best to pleasant the same men who consume porno and abuse prostituted women.

    Feminists hate and always attack me when i say avarage women is responsible as well,why they wouldn´t be?How somnething like the nordic model can work out if women just don´t care?In Sweden they do care,that´s why the model has been succesfull.

    The anti-pono moviment should focuse avarage women more instead of expecting that men will change.If men have women supporting their sexist behaviour,they will never stop.
