What about lesbian porn? Well… it’s just as bad.

A fairly common reply from pornsick dudes when you criticize pornography is, “what about gay porn? what about lesbian porn?” They’re just as bad.

I decided to write this article because I want some reality and truth about porn to be known, in order to counter all of the fantasy, lies, and propaganda perpetuated by the porn industry and their supporters. My hope is that if you ever watch a “girl-girl” porn movie again, (and I hope that you won’t), that maybe you’ll look beyond the charade of “sensuality” and “two women enjoying each other’s bodies,” and see the real misguided human beings on the screen, who are just going through the motions, acting and pretending (often while cringing in pain), and wishing that they weren’t really there.

Really. Face the truth. “Sensuality” and “two women enjoying each other’s bodies” is almost never what is truly going on. “Lesbian” porn is just as manufactured and detrimental to the performers, viewers and society as heterosexual porn is — it just APPEARS to be different and better. Like every other type of porn, the orgasms and the “pleasure” in “lesbian” porn are just an illusion, created to get users to believe the lies spread by the porn industry, and to get the “fans” to spend their money, so that the pornographers can get rich.

I strongly encourage any viewers of “lesbian porn” to save your time and your money (if you’re paying for it), and spare yourself the delusions.

    Me and my ex always thought the music in porn films with lesbians in it should be provided by “nine inch nails”.

    I don’t generally watch porn, well, I’ll watch sometimes just to see how bad it can be, but generally, the lesbians in mainstream porn are never actual lesbians, I mean how can they be when men get involved.

    I would rather see two women enjoying each other’s personality as opposed to each other’s bodies and yes, I believe that can be expressed through sex. I have no desire to watch videos of people’s real life sex acts, I feel that would be a violation of their privacy, but I would like to see loving, egalitarian depictions of sex and romance (including lesbian sex and romance) that placed more emphasis on women’s human traits rather than how they looked. Of course, these depictions will never come from pornography and it will take a great deal of struggle for them to be featured in the mainstream media, but such struggles are the very purpose of feminism, are they not?

      The problem with porn or anything like it is that it’s scripted, it’s a fantasy, and yeah, some of the time we want a fantasy, but porn is “perfect” in that its scripted (I’m not saying it’s a good thing, I’m saying its shown how the director wants it). Seeing actual real sex, other than a privacy thing, well, just think about it for a second, real sex is anything but scripted and is imperfect, and who really wants to see that?

      I think there is an inkling of that in the very tamest, “ethical” porn companies like Abby Winters and Met-Art, but they also have problems. More to the point, it’s not really possible to say how much of it is scripted and how much of it is an authentic interaction between two personalities. I think there’s probably no way of telling, which makes the prospect of seeing actual (authentic) loving egalitarian depictions of anything rather difficult.

        I am not really concerned about “authenticity”. Films are scripted works of art, not videos of reality and I am okay with that, because films take the most interesting parts of reality and present them to us without all the boring bits (good films at least).

        Many “authentic”, real life sex acts consist of violence and degradation, because our general culture is one filled with such things. I do not want to capture “authentic” sex if it looks like that. I want people to be inspired by depictions of what sex could be like if we lived in a culture that celebrated love and equality. Yes, these would be fictional, but it is what people need in our society, a vision to aspire too, not validation of any violent, anti-egalitarian fantasies they might have.
