oprahViolet Blue, blogger and sex educator extraordinaries was just on the Tyra banks show and had a pretty horrific time. She was asked on because of her article in Oprah's magazine about porn for women. I was thrilled about that article and hoped that Tyra's show would do it justice. Instead, it sounds like they screwed up in almost every way possible. If you want a good picture of how porn is being represented to women, I highly recommend reading Violet's story at her blog, Tiny Nibbles. Here's a snippet:
I watched as the show evolved into a giant ad for Candida Royalle's films -- which is great, except the underlying message was, in repetition, that women who watch porn want romance. And romantic porn. That porn made for men is icky and dumb, and women don't like that. (...so, if we do, then we should be ashamed?) No mention was made about any other kind of porn, or that the women watching porn (and getting off to it) are watching *all kinds* of porn, showing how empowered we women are to now really finally be asking for what we want (to see, and do) sexually. To Royalle's disservice (though she came off terrific), only Candice's older, more romantic, nay, softer films were showcased.
Update: Cory Silverberg on About.com wrote a great piece on this.
