For our group presentation we talked about porn from 1900 to present day. I am particularly interested in why there is so much aggression and violence directed towards women in porn. I understand that many people find domination a turn on, and I don’t think there is anything wrong with that, but you don’t see much porn with women dominating men. Maybe it’s just that men are generally stronger so it would seem impractical? Also I think that women can and do enjoy porn when men are dominating females, but is there a way for that porn to be feminist?
