Porn IS Feminist!

by Beth Divine 7 Dec 2017

Following on from Part One: Is Porn Feminist?

There is, in fact, a stronger argument for how porn can be seen as an empowering, feminist tool.

First of all, most porn films have the action driven by the women: the hot babe comes on to the male character, or strips off invitingly, or – in one way or another – indicates her desire to enjoy some steamy sexy time with the male character (or another woman, or both!). That the female character is shown to be in charge of both her sexuality and her femininity in the same scene is actually an amazingly feminist boost. All too often, ‘feminists’ are portrayed as women doing ‘men’s’ work, changing themselves to be more masculine, and very much re-moulding themselves as ‘mini men’ almost. Porn stars embrace and glory in their extreme femininity and use it to their own advantage to gain sexual satisfaction.

Women are the superstars in porn. Female porn stars get the big salaries, and have the power in the production office as well as in the story line. Female stars can often pick and choose their co-stars and have a measure of control over their careers – more so than male co-stars who often become fleshy sex toys for the female stars to manipulate and control.

Modern porn films show female porn stars, especially the more amateur ones, actively enjoying sex. It is visually more exciting to see a woman who is sexually aroused rather than one who is simply lying there and taking it. Old-fashioned porn films concentrated on the men’s arousal, and the women’s parts – vaginas and ass and tits – without considering women’s pleasure.

This is partly because women’s sex organs are (obviously!) internal, so it seemed too difficult to show a verifiable female orgasm. A male orgasm can be caught on film – there are hundreds of cumshots and variations on these (facials, pearl necklaces etc.) but a female orgasm is a matter of stillness and internal ripples – which used to be very difficult to capture on film, when resolution was low and cameras were big, bulky pieces of equipment. However, technology has advanced so that cameras can get up close to the action without disrupting anyone’s enjoyment, and picture definition is beautifully clear, even in close-ups, so that female pleasure in sex and her orgasm is clearly visible to a viewer.  That audiences want to see women enjoying sex is clear from the prevalence of cream-pie and massage footage (both usually focusing on capturing female pleasure rather than male orgasm).

The advent of quick and easy hook-up dating sites, means that people can feel horny, go onto one of the sites to find an ideal partner in their area and meet up for a quick fuck – or perhaps even stay for breakfast if you get on well! Virtual reality porn fits very well into this casual hook-up world, allowing members to pleasure themselves, get tips on acts to try out with a partner, or just generally enjoy watching – either alone, or with a partner to get down with once the film has got them in the mood for some nasty real life action!
