So I have seen a lot of porn and Sasha Grey is a very popular porn star. Mainly because she does very extreme stuff, for example the kind of scenes where she is gagged with a man's cock to the extent that she us virtually vomiting. And she acts like she is loving it. One of the quotes in the magazine article from one of her films is, " Rip my fucking holes open". It's the most brutal, mistogynistic, woman hating porn you can possibly experience. And she is talking about it as being liberating and empowering for women. I'm no prude but her stuff sickens me. And now she's written an erotic novel and has an interview in Elle magazine where the cover line is, " writer, actress, feminist,porn star".
Makes me absolutely despair of where we as women have come to if she is being described as a "feminist". She is absolutely everything anti feminist to me. Any thoughts? Also if you have never seen her stuff, prepare to be appauled...

Just to add, I think Elle could have written something like, 'self confessed' or 'self proclaimed' and escaped all this criticism.

Then the argument would have been with SG herself.

See this months Marie Claire.... Very interesting continuation of our discussions here. A feminist makes porn... After enjoying lots of porn.... Because shes a feminist... Concludes..... Porn is not feminist.... Very interesting read.

"How far are dicks allowed in my mouth before I automatically hate all other women?

I just think it's nuts to use that as a yardstick."

Genius! smile
