Great post. What’s the difference between a romance novel that depicts unrealistic expectations of relationships vs. porn which depicts unrealistic expectations of sexual relationships? Are both equally bad?
Pornography receives a lot of (mostly justified, but not always) criticism from all angles. It is said to objectify women; some former porn stars have come out and confessed horror stories about the industry. Psychologists criticise that it creates unhealthy expectations in relationships amongst young men (though why we don’t ascribe the same criticisms to romance literature that creates equal but different damaging relationship expectations in young women is anybody’s guess).
