What does feminist porn look like?

It’s a common complaint among feminists that pornography “objectifies” women. Rightly so, since a lot of it does. Most (straight) pornography really does present women as mere objects without feelings or desires of their own. The only role most porn shows women playing in sexual encounters is as catering to the fantasies and whims of men, who pay no attention to anything about women’s needs, let alone their desires.

But that’s not the worst of it. A lot of pornography is proudly misogynistic. Women are mistreated, humiliated, used, and insulted, all of which is presented as “normal” and appropriate. The fact that this is expected to appeal to a male audience is scary.
