“For those of you who think that feminists exaggerate or cherry-pick the worst of the porn industry, I have an experiment for you. Type ‘porn’ into Google and click around the most well-travelled websites that appear. With mind-numbing repetition you will see gagging, slapping, verbal abuse, hair-pulling, pounding anal sex, women smeared in semen, sore anuses and vaginas, distended mouths, and more exhausted, depleted and shell-shocked women than you can count. You will not see two people having sex; you will see images depicting a level of physical cruelty that would not be out of place in an Amnesty International campaign.
One of the only studies of contemporary pornographic content found that the majority of scenes from fifty of the top-rented porn movies contained both physical and verbal abuse targeted against the female performers. Physical aggression – including spanking, open-hand slapping and gagging – occurred in over 88% of scenes, while expressions of verbal aggression – calling the woman names such as ‘bitch’ or ‘slut’ – were found in 48%. The researchers concluded that ‘if we combine both physical and verbal aggression, our findings indicate that nearly 90 per cent of scenes contained at least one aggressive act, with an average of nearly twelve acts of aggression per scene’.

This is the major form of sex education for men should be taken very seriously by the women’s movement. The same men who get off from women being brutalised and called cunts, sluts and cum-dumpsters are the ones who go on to become politicians, corporate executives, judges, media professionals, policy makers and bankers. In other words, they become the economic and cultural elite that shape the material and ideological world that determines how women – and their children – will live. Most of them will become partners and fathers. To assume that porn is mere fantasy and does not impact on the way men think and feel is to ignore decades of research on how images frame our social construction of reality.”

what-is-this-thingy-bobby said: How is porn rape?
1. You don’t know the circumstances under which the video was filmed, produced or distributed.
2. Most of the time the women aren’t paid until the end of the shoot and many sexual acts that are not wanted are sprung on them and in order to actually take home that pay check, they are coerced into acts that they did not consent to.
3. These videos/images can not be taken down from the internet at a later date, one can not with draw their participation in pornography (genuine consent requires the ability to withdraw it,)
4. Many women in the porn industry are survivors of abuse or are in precarious financial situations or may out right trafficked. There aren’t other choices out there for them and porn may be their only option. This is not consent.
5. Many women are raped for pornography - look at the cases of Steubenville, Rehtaeh Parsons or the 2006 Werribee Incident in Australia. Or a more recent case in the UK where a young woman was murdered by a young man who was trying to recreate BDSM pornography.
I (mod P) have been raped and my rapist made pornography of it. These are not by any means isolated accounts.
