Ellen Page Wants Porn for Women Made by Women

The majority of porn made today is catered more to the male demographic. Of course, everyone already knows this because men consume around 99% of all porn. Ellen Page, however, would like that to change. She wants more porn for women made by women. Woo hoo, girl power and all that.

At a recent panel she explained, “To only have porn from the male perspective is damaging. Women are sexual creatures, as much as men, and that needs to be embraced.”

Her point is admirable but it’s just not going to happen. Porn for women is terrible. 30 minutes of foreplay with a couple shots of penetration and grinding all accompanied by Enya singing in the background. Instead of a guy obscenely grunting while finishing on the girl’s face, the girl would just roll over and they’d spoon until the scene fades to black. It’s like watching Skinemax but way more awkward when your friends walk in on you. I think it was Benjamin Franklin who said, “A person’s worth is judged by the quality of porn they watch.”

Ellen also talked about the lack of roles for women in the entertainment industry. “Considering there are so few roles for women and the roles that do exist can be so narrow in their idea of what a woman can be, it is extremely important to me to be involved with projects where the girl is in charge of her own destiny and is honest and well-written.”

Well, yea, but that’s true for any minority. Just replace “women” with “black, latino, asian” and you’d have the same argument.
