Seeing a good looking but famous woman nude in a movie or on a computer screen is, for those of us past adolescence, interesting in the way that the Blog Chicks Pix* is: it’s a curiousity. It’s certainly true that access to porn has never been easier.
“Porn sex is designed to get men off in six to eight minutes.Many men don’t know how to interpret female behavior in bed unless it replicates a porno film.” Far from having to fend off porn-crazed young men, young women are worrying that as mere flesh and blood, they can scarcely get, let alone hold, their attention.Here is what young women tell me on college campuses when the subject comes up: They can’t compete, and they know it.For how can a real woman-with pores and her own breasts and even sexual needs of her own (let alone with speech that goes beyond “More, more, you big stud! And that’s not to mention emotional attachment, the ability to share our lives, have babies, and all those other reasons why heterosexual men are drawn to women.”-possibly compete with a cybervision of perfection, downloadable and extinguishable at will, who comes, so to speak, utterly submissive and tailored to the consumer’s least specification? Until fantasy gains those qualities, real women have no competition.
