Erika Lust on porn (I couldn't have said it better, so I won't):

"Eroticism and pornography have been hijacked. The internet is flooded with porn sites showing the ugly, the tacky, the repetitive and gynecological. On the opposite end of the spectrum, there are those sites using the word “art” to describe an elegant aesthetic covering up Playboy ethics.

I don’t buy either of these. The pornocheap because the only thing they know is the formula blowjob-fuck-anal-facial. The pornoglam because they essentially do the same but with beautiful performers, lots of lighting and soft filters. Both feature the male gaze that idolizes the woman as an object of pleasure: whether as sluts in pornocheap, or goddesses in pornoglam.

Even outside the commecial sites, you find the same limited views of sex: on Tumblr, Vimeo channels, sex blogs and porn tubes.

I want to claim a new way of seeing and understanding eroticism, a new era where we all participate in breaking the clichés, where creativity and innovation go hand in hand with eroticism, where man and woman share roles, where there are no wank-friendly labels like Gay, Hetero, Lesbian, Interracial, Anal, Blowjobs, MILFS, Big Cocks, Big Boobs, Small Boobs…

Together with all of you, I want to create a place where we redefine eroticism and end the dictatorship of bad porn".
