Make Love Not Porn

When porn is discussed, people are either for it or against it – neither side has anything interesting to say really.

That’s why I like Cindy Gallop (despite the polemical name of her website Makelovenotporn.com). Like me, she watches hardcore porn herself on a regular basis, but she wants to problematize what the new availability of porn does to children and youth.

I think that’s highly relevant. The exposure to hardcore porn must have some impact on the youth. Not necessarily a negative one – the new generation might become less tense about sex issues. But also not necessarily a positive one. Bottom line is: We simply don’t know. And we should, since porn is a huge part of many young people’s lives.

    Wow, I love her even more now! Her apartment is as fantastic as she is, the way it should be.
