Who says most porn is violent? This study from 2010 says so.
Of the 304 [porn] scenes analyzed, 88.2 percent contained physical aggression, principally spanking, gagging, and slapping, while 48.7 percent of scenes contained verbal aggression, primarily name-calling. Perpetrators of aggression were usually male, whereas targets of aggression were overwhelmingly female. Targets most often showed pleasure or responded neutrally to the aggression.
Pornography that shows women enjoying aggressive verbal and physical treatment teaches men that women generally enjoy this type of treatment. It is propaganda that:
promotes certain views about men and women. It promotes the view that women want to be f*cked – it is their nature. If they say no they mean yes, even if they say it hurts or it looks like it hurts they still say they like it. In pornography, women get hurt and they ask for more. They are called names, spat at, choked, airtighted, slapped and they enjoy it. They smile and say that they enjoyed it. Only in pornography does a human being ask someone to hurt her.” (from this great article.)
Exploitation-positive feminists claim that pornography is liberating, but in fact it teaches men that women enjoy being “put in their place”. The end result of this type of propaganda can be found in this MRA gem:
It’s the same when it comes to disciplining women. Slapping a girl across the face isn’t just about hurting her, it’s a kind of neg. It says, “I can crush you like an insect, but you aren’t worth the effort.” It’s a tacit acknowledgment that she’s weaker than you, beneath you, and if she crosses you again, you’ll put her in the hospital. You treat her like she’s a child throwing a temper tantrum, not an equal.
Damn, it’s almost like some girls like this “domestic violence” thing!
Sean Connery seems okay with it, after all.
