  1. If women are prepared, of their own free will, to engage in the kind of activity Gail Dines describes, that is their decision and nobody else’s business. The comment from Christopher Ferguson that if porn were going to ruin society it’s had 20 years to do it and it hasn’t happened is very apposite.

    1. Plodding, petty-authoritarian academics like Dines don’t recognise individual free will, taking the collectivist view that people belong to particular demographics acted upon by forces outside of themselves, rather than being conscious actors in a wider society.

  2. What I have noticed over the passed thirty years is how porn has intergrated so much with the mainstream media. I’ve seen porn actresses get interviews on MSNBC and ABC News and write articles for the Huffington Post. They also seem to be the staple fodder for reality shows these days
