Women in pornography are portrayed as the fantasized ideal - always ready and willing, always orgasmic, completely satisfied with you and always wanting more. It’s no surprise guys want to look.

this really bothers me but i can’t properly explain why
if it’s just that the idea of a woman who wants them appeals to men then why is so much porn NOT about a ‘ready and willing’ woman. if what men want is to be wanted, why do they harass women?
porn isn’t something that tempts men, that’s the kind of anti-porn reasoning you get from religious conservatives. men honestly have to SEEK OUT porn, it doesn’t land in your lap. it’s like hehe, we’ve all done it, we can’t help it, it’s natural - gross. that’s no way to talk about the exploitation of other human beings?
also i’m tired of the idea that men can have all this temptation or whatever - that they give in because they don’t know the truth about porn and how bad it is for women. they do know, they just don’t care unless it’s a woman they specifically care about.

Instead we talk about mental illness and gun control. If it were Asian women or Jewish men or elderly African-American, it would be topic number one. But not white men.” In fact, the media response to mass shootings often reimagines white men as victims.
