This is Pornography: Part 1

14 Oct

[Trigger warning: graphic descriptions of dehumanization, sexual assault, and sexualization of power inequality.]

This is the first post in what will be an ongoing series. I plan on posting descriptions of porn videos that are currently popular (according to Adult Video News), and I will be including some commentary as to what each video is saying about classes of people, particularly women and people/women of color. Women need to know that this is not benign “entertainment” that men are watching – not just a fantasy with no connection to “real life”. So here’s what porn really is.

The following videos were in AVN’s Top 100 Rentals for October 2010. Underlining for emphasis has been added by me.

Filthy Anal Girls: POV+ (Number 6 in popularity)

“Filthy? Yessir… 10 filthy, phat, ass-fucked, gaping girls, two-at-a-time for lucky Mike Adriano’s POV camera. There’s lots of POV blowjob stuff out there, but nobody shoots POV anal like Adriano, that’s why it’s called POV+. It starts with impeccable casting: Adriano loves curves so he included a group of honeys with big tits and asses, like Beverly Hills and Mason Moore as well as some tight hard bodies like Danica and Lou Charmelle. Big or small, the common thread is a willingness to have their asses lubed. Stretched and fucked. Adriano gets each lady in the mood with a loving anal kiss: he personally licks, lubes, rims and preps each anal ring as a prelude to amazingly shot close-ups of his cock slowly entering the puckering asses, while simultaneously capturing the faces of ecstasy in the same frame. This is what porn is supposed to be! As an added bonus, Filthy Anal Girls has a sixth “bonus scene” with Holly Fox and Andi Anderson from two years ago to show us how Adriano arrived at the status he currently enjoys: an anal adventurer of the highest caliber. They’re freaky, fun and filthy.”

What it says: Women who have anal sex are filthy. Women who have sex are filthy. Sex is filthy. You should like filthy sex. It is hot. No matter what these women look like, they all have an extreme desire for anal penetration. These women like to be anally penetrated. Women like to be anally penetrate. This is what porn is supposed to be. This is how your sex life should be. You should have anal sex with women. They all like it.

Hot and Mean (Number 21 in popularity)

“I’ll Do Anything to Have This Sale”
Adult toy saleswoman Madelyn just made the pitch of her life, and her client wants a demonstration of the products. Madelyn is more than happy to oblige.

“Dominating the Boss”
Sandy is a boss with a bad attitude. When one of her workers stands up to her, a cat fight erupts. Passions overtake them and Sandy submits to the pleasure.

[. . .]

“Pussy Drills”
Ashley is a tough drill sergeant who loves breaking down sexy, young recruits. Just when she breaks Veronica, she pulls out the dildos and fucks her.

What it says: Saleswomen should be sexualized. Women in positions of power in the workplace should be sexualized. Women in the military should be sexualized. Violently overtaking someone will lead to sex. Wearing someone down over time in order to ‘break’ them will cause them to ‘submit’ to you, and you two will have sex.

Pound Pussy 2 (Number 22 in popularity)

A “pound puppy” is a young, cute, cuddly dog that’s been rescued and is ready to reward its new master with unconditional love and affection. A “Pound Pussy” has the same qualities, except that we thankfully replace the puppies with pussies. Jonni Darkko movies have a way of delivering quality smut with insanely pretty girls who seem to enjoy being slutty. Pound Pussy 2 could be subtitled the “all-natural, all-brunette, all-cute edition”. Every one of these tight, tender tarts looks like the co-ed next door. The difference is that these youthful innocent girls all harbor a healthy, fun-loving appetite for cock and a big-time thirst for cum… which is why each one takes it in the mouth or face, ingesting cock-cream like a puppy lapping up a fresh bowl of milk. Amia Miley undulates in a sexy bikini that shows of her round ass and silky skin, moaning and squealing in a little girl voice and after her fuck session with Jordan, she drips his cum down her chin and teases the camera asking “do you want to fuck me too?” [. . .] Charley takes on two studs simultaneously, one black (Yashua) and one white (Mark Wood). They turn her upside down, fill her throat for a deep gag and baste her with enough ball butter to cover that face and both big boobies. No wonder Jonni likes to rescue these Pound Pussies. After all, they’re a man’s best friend.

What it says: Women are interchangeable with animals. These women look like the women in your college classes. It is ‘healthy’ and ‘fun-loving’ to like performing oral sex on men. It is best that women show how much they love a man’s ejaculate.

Up Skirts 2 (Number 28 in popularity)

Do you linger under stairwells hoping to sneak a peek under a hot girl’s miniskirt? Have you considered gluing mirrors on your shoes? Well put down the glue and pick up the lube instead, cuz your waiting days are over! ZT has brought you the sauciest sluts in the skimpiest skirts imaginable, and those firm round asses underneath are begging for much more than just a look. So go ahead and lift up the beaver’s tail to reveal that juicy pussy you always knew was waiting for you!

What it says: Do you like to look up women’s skirts and violate their privacy? This video will finally satisfy your urges that you have yet to act out on ‘real’ women. These women are wearing short skirts because they want you to look at their bodies. They are ‘begging’ for you to objectify them. These women’s bodies are for your pleasure. Women’s bodies are for your pleasure.

    You are much more brave than I am. I could never even look at AVN, much less read any descriptions beyond what you have posted. I can only relate your analysis to the attitudes of the men who have raped and assaulted me. It is horrifying.

    TRIGGER WARNING!

    It horrifies me that I have witnessed how men take what they absorb from porn and act out the power that they are told they should have over women. A man once violated me anally, then after it was over he turned to his extensive porn collection to try and show me that I was supposed to like it, that this is what he wanted me to act like while he was raping me. I could vomit thinking about it today. The same man made me bleed profusely, because he consumed porn which told him women want to be violently fucked, even until they bleed. It just means that you made them submit! They love it!

    But we don’t.

      Oh my gosh, that’s so terrible. I’m sorry he did that to you. I have personal evidence as well that men most certainly imitate what they seen in porn. I can’t believe other “feminists” can say that porn doesn’t affect the way men view women. I mean, hello, what happened to that leftist critique of media?! It’s absurd.

    Don’t forget “feminist”/”female friendly” pornographic material either. Where “feminist” pornorapher Ruby Day calls her website “Diary of a Nympho” because all womyn who have PIV are wild and instatiable.

    “By this point my bedmate and I started to explore the wonderful world of multiple partners, orgies, and group sex helping me to realize how truly bisexual I really am. By this point we had had multiple girlfriends and couples alike helping us realize we are polyamorous people. I also discovered I love cock and pussy, my multiple fetishes, the BDSM lifestyle, how much I love being photographed and video taped, and just how much sex I truly require to be happy. One man or woman couldn’t possibly satisfy me. Which brings me to why I do this website, why I do fetish/erotica modeling, and why I do porn. I’m a nymphomaniac exhibitionist who lives the BDSM lifestyle and I want to share my sexual experiences and life with all of you. ”

    Because womyn need to be introduced into their real, insatiable whore like selves. All womyn are whores, just waiting to be brought out and pimped.

    Don’t forget the wonderful pro-woMAN of ‘feminist’ pornographers like River Rock Women’s Prison:

    “A series of events lead Zerva into the hands of Warden Adams, who teaches her an unforgettable lesson in respect, descipline and freedom. A lesson in the only freedom she’ll ever know, the ultimate freedom… surrender.”

    And one more:

    “4) Cocksucker—Fetish director Julie Simone’s short film about the power and pleasure of giving head gives us an intimate look at some very intimate acts.”

    There’s not a lot of difference between the people who pretend not to hate womyn and the people who do hey?

      Indeed. D:

    • lishra October 16, 2010 at 1:35 pm #

      That Ruby Day description sounds so similar to porn scripts… a woman unsure of her sexuality is introduced to [insert 'non-vanilla' sex acts] and realizes her true sexual potential and satisfaction, and bla bla bla. Oh, please. How is this not giving men carte blanche to coerce women into performing sex acts they wouldn’t otherwise do? Jeez, and then they can say, “But baby, that feminist porn we watched together said you’d like this if you just try it.”

      • berryblade October 16, 2010 at 11:02 pm #

        I know right.

        I just can’t believe people are stupid enough to believe that this isn’t womon-hating.

  3. mscitrus October 15, 2010 at 11:28 pm #

    Ugh, yes, I saw the River Rock Women’s Prison thing. Truly disgusting, and even sadder once you realize this is “feminist” porn. I appreciate you digging through the shit to find this. I do this myself sometimes for certain posts, and its truly difficult.

    I so hate the “brunette” = girl-next-door. I got that from my last boyfriend, who was trying to tell me it’s ok I’m not a mega hot babe, because I’m just a different “type.”

    Honestly, the existence of up-skirting makes me want to wear a very very tight mini and put a fake cock and balls in my underwear. But I dunno if that would run some guys boner or not.

    • berryblade October 16, 2010 at 2:24 am #

      Hahaha, I think I’m going to have to train myself to use a gun with my vulva so I can just shoot the little shit in the face. Hm, maybe not.

      I just can’t believe the pro-pay-per-rape-pundits are dumb enough to buy into this crap as “feminist”. Do they honestly not realise that womyn can and do oppress other womyn?

      Daly had a great name for them – “token torturers” and that’s exactly what these ‘feminist’ pornographers are. Especially twisted oxygen wasters like the pimp Candidia Royalle and Tristin Taoaramomo or whatever the fuck her name is. The latter dedicated an entire pornographic movie into grooming a womon into having anal intercourse, that she was obviously not keen on. Some feminist indeed.

      • lishra October 16, 2010 at 2:04 pm #

        Ha! “Vulva: Armed and Dangerous”, a radfem film by berryblade. Now I’m playing the movie voiceover thing in my head… “In a world, where men think they have free reign over women’s bodies…”. I fear that the shooting-a-gun-with-one’s-genitals thing is getting too close to becoming like a Quentin Tarantino film though.

        I just started reading Daly’s “Gyn/Ecology” last month. “Token torturers” is certainly apt.

      • berryblade October 16, 2010 at 11:05 pm #

        Haha, it would go well with my piss take of Eraserhead, except I would make it about female menstruation anxiety instead of boring male-anxiety about jizz.

        What scares me most is that Daly talks a lot about the coming of the second age of witch burning (sic) in Pure Lust, and a lot of it sounds VERY familiar to the climate we find ourselves in presently.

      Totally with you about that “typing” thing that porn-using men do. A man I used to be with was very into porn. After one instance of him not being able to sustain an erection, he explained that he didn’t know why that was happening because, “I mean, you’re 18…” etc. Right, because I’m a “hot, barely legal teen” like he normally would watch in porn, he should be able to keep a boner up. Great. Nice to know what I was to him. Too bad I didn’t understand that then…. ugg… I should do a post about that guy. So many porn-related ‘ick’ things that I didn’t really pick up on until later.

      Your mini skirt/fake dick idea is hilarious. I find myself having major difficulty confronting things so obviously violent as ‘upskirting’ porn. I hate that the existence of that causes me to police myself into not wearing skirts that are even a little bit above the knee. Fucking male terrorism.

    Omfg RR, that’s so horrible :(
    I think our rapist could be the same guy though, same obsession with anal penetration/porn and same disregard for humans.

    • Rainbow Riot October 17, 2010 at 1:02 am #

      :( It’s both so saddening and also a little comforting to know that someone else has gone through a similar thing. Actually, no. It’s saddening and infuriating. It’s comforting to know that we are strong, and that we have solidarity against men’s fucked up bullshit.

      I have been having really random flashbacks and nightmares lately, seemingly with no triggers, but oddly it helps for me to focus on the relationship between porn, patriarchy, and violence. I feel like if I can understand men’s violence, and their hatred of us, then I can fight it both inside and outside myself. I can deconstruct why I have internalized all the guilt and pain for my rape(s), rather than putting the blame on the rapists, where it belongs.

    Ugh, reading through these comment. I can relate to it all – especially the “ick” things that come out of porn, that women have to deal with. Like the asshole I dated in highschool who would tell me I’d be “sexier” if I shaved my crotch, got a boob job and how he constantly BEGGED me to watch porn with him (which I only did once and made fun of it the entire time, so that he didn’t try to get me to again, lol), have anal or have sex with his underage friend that he felt deserved to lose his virginity (which, had I consented – coulda landed me in jail) – THESE are the attitudes porn teaches men (and women) – that women are just for their sexual use and abuse.
    I watched my own father turn into a creepy old man because of porn. Men are stupid if they don’t think years of jerking off to this shit has no affect on their brains. How fucking POSITIVE! It’s just harmless fun fantasy!
