Naomi Wolf on Porn

Insightful piece on the effects of porn on the male libido by Naomi Wolf in New York Magazine (The Porn Myth).

Reflecting on past projections of feminist Andrea Dworkin that the expansion of porn would turn men into sex-crazed lunatics, Wolf finds that, instead, men are mentally exhausted by porn and losing interest in the real female form:

The ubiquity of sexual images does not free eros but dilutes it.

Really interesting piece, and definitely worth a read.

  1. She’s all wrong. It’s the tatoos that are turning men off. All the porn starts have them and the woman today are slapping them on just like the porn stars. Advert – that I’m not a real woman.
