Does anybody else feel like pornography is a completely missed opportunity? While there may be certain efforts in the industry worth respecting, the majority of what I’ve witnessed in my lifetime is embarrassingly stereotypical. Here we have an opportunity to celebrate and record what is essentially the most passionate form of human artistic expression, experience, and sensation, and we make up monotonous scenario’s about hot mom’s, secretary’s, and school girls? I think a significant change is in order.
A woman’s beauty is supposed to be her grand project and constant insecurity. We’re meant to shellac our lips with five different glosses, but always think we’re fat. Beauty is Zeno’s paradox. We should endlessly strive for it, but it’s not socially acceptable to admit we’re there. We can’t perceive it in ourselves. It belongs to the guy screaming ‘nice tits.’
