I discovered a new documentary series on Netflix the other day. Hot Girls Wanted : Turned On, a documentary analyzing the modern day porn industry. Human sexuality has always been fascinating to me. If you feel the same, definitely check it out!
In the first episode we are introduced to Erika Lust and her amazing project. There is a feminist pornography movement ladies! Did you know about this? It’s completely new to me but I am already sold! And I am totally behind this woman! What she is trying to achieve is amazing!
I feel that we, as women, deserve to be able to enjoy adult movies too! The problem with porn is not that it’s porn – we are past the whole ‘pleasure is sinful’, ‘sex is taboo’ mentality, or so I hope.
The problem with porn is that it’s not accurately portraying reality and that the generations that grow up watching it internalise a distorted view on sexual relations. I know I did..
Sex is amazing, sex is beautiful! And that is what our children should watch! Not men talking advantage of women, women as sex slaves or abusive sexual relations.
Erika herself beautifuly put it : ‘We cant ignore that porn today is sex education!’. It is undeniable that what we see influences our thoughts and thusly our actions. This is why porn, as a rule, should not be degrading to women! I am confident that this new way of creating pornography will positively impact our world by it’s contribution to combatting rape culture.
